Blog Notes: More WordPress Illness

September 26, 2007

I’m having a huge shitload of problems with WordPress right now, preventing me from getting a large post out.

A JPEG link won’t work. It’s a JPEG I’ve used before and it’s now broken everywhere in the blog.

I can’t see the HTML code of the post, just formatted-for-posting text.

Goddammit!

Photo Album: India At Sixty, South Street Seaport NYC

September 26, 2007

All photos taken Tuesday, September 25, 2007

I didn’t get there until near 8PM. I missed Remo Fernandes‘ South Street Seaport concert. I wanted to see that. I thought it’d be at night, the usual concert time there. Unfortunately, the India at 60 website failed to go into time details. But I did catch a bunch of other interesting acts.

The only non-blurry photo of this great puppeteer. Notice he is holding the strings directly in his hands. No crossbars.

One of several regional dance troupes.

Another regional troupe. She is spinning that platter on a fingertip.

Color corrected. Those are peacock feathers! Look at the costume detail!

Then it was time for the pop music. Via the Bollywood Dancers! I had a girder support in the middle of my frame, so I had to crop a few dancers into each photo. There were five men and five women in all. Song tracks played and they mouthed the words while performing these dances from films.

During intermission for costume change, the two hosts introduced the famous choreographer of Bollywood, the woman dressed in white, with mic.

These were dances and songs apparently well-known to the crowd, a segment of which was going wild with dancing and singing!

The choreographer introduces each dancer. At least two are also choreographing Broadway shows. In the audience was a student of hers who can give lessons in Bollywood dancing styles in New York City.

A whole big rack of puppets. I missed that show!

An after-event picture of the famous choreographer whose name I obviously did not get.

It was a great and exciting show. I also sampled some genuine food from India. Wow. My tongue went into orgasm. It was delicious.

Happy Anniversary to India!
