Asian Performances

The Philipino, Thai, Chinese, and Japanese groups all had performances and demonstrations.
These are some of the ones I really liked.


Meditation exercises

There were even some instrumentals

Overall it was a really fun time

I love Lucy

Lucy Ho.
Today I met up with her again at the Asian Cultural Fair in town. Last year I went to the Hakki concert that she helped to put on, so I asked her when this year's concert will be.

She told me I missed it.
It was last week!
I never even saw it advertised or anything :(
She was great about it and told me about the big one in September of this year and they gave me some cute cellphone accessories from Taiwan :)
The red mask is the one I took home.

I love Asian culture...well all culture really but this is the one I went to today :)
Lucy on the other hand is so tiny and sweet.

She loves to talk about how and when she came here and what other Asian awareness events are coming up.
I should really try to make it out to her original restaurant although I have been to Masa and I love it :)

You are Poison Ivy

Poison Ivy
Dr. Doom
Mr. Freeze
Green Goblin
The Joker
Dark Phoenix
Lex Luthor
You would go to almost any length for the protection of the environment including manipulation and elimination.

Reminds me

Some art takes you back.

To books your read when you were younger about British seasides and elevenses, or the countryside picnics, you could imagine but never went about the business of doing.

Or it can remind you of the silly cartoons and comic books you used to read.

This reminds me of Boyo Butler

Some art just reminds you that sometimes art is there for the sake of art.

Smokin Aces

Did not get great reviews, but I really liked it. The audience seemed to really go for it too!
The violence in this movie was extreme but did not feel too gratuitous.
For the purposes of this movie, that level of violence was required, and with the brute force and magnitude to which it was portrayed.
The cast of charcaters in this movie was phenomenal but I wondered what the salaries were because the movie only cost 17 million dollars to make.

I really liked Common, Taraji Henson, Jeremy Piven, Chris Pine, and Tommy Flanagan in this movie even though the others like Ben Affleck, Peter Berg, Ryan Reynolds, and Ray Liotta were also so very good.
I recommend this movie as a possible must see.

Shells and Sand

I never saw open turtle shells before.

These were strewn all over the floor.

I didn't touch them.
Matt told me that the one on the wall is made of metal.

I didn't examine the ones on the floor closely enough to tell if they were too but I suspect so.

I love shadow boxes and when I have time and space I will probably make my own.
I saw this one and really liked looking into it and getting into it, thinking into it.
Crawling into it
The box reminded me of The Borrowers, one of my all time favorite stories.

Rescue Me

Is one of my favorite tv shows because of the raw realness of it.
Sometimes I think it's too much but I can't stop watching.
It makes you laugh, cry, get angry, get everything...
The writing is excellent.
Dennis Leary did a good job with this production.

Channel Pillows

When I saw these I had to take a picture.

I really would never have thought to make art out of these or bar codes but they did.

Spiderman 3

This was the best of all of the series in my estimation.

The story dealt with loss, revenge, forgiveness and redemption.
I loved all of it.
Topher Grace (from That 70s Show) was excellent. I am glad that he has moved on and is getting better and better roles all the time. Good agent and Good actor!
Thomas Hayden Church (Wings, Ned and Stacy, Sideways), was really great in this role. I hope this propels his career even further. He is so underrated as an actor in Hollywood, even though he plays great roles.
Brice Campbell also had a very small role for which he received among the top billing in the credits. His friendship with Sam Raimi is paying off but I do feel he is too talented to not have his own show.
James Franco was wonderful and they played up his trademark smile and wink...lovely work

I really enjoyed the story, the special effects (amazing), and how everything all came together.
Good Job. Well done. I should have seen it at the IMAX!

Outside entertainment

Drumming and all manner of percussions.

They go until late in the night and people gather round to listen and dance, or whatever they want to do.
In the middle is the 'bonfire'.

Fake of course but at night it lights up the place.
