Barbie bandits: The road to ruin

Johnston’s attorney […] described her as “scared to death, just wondering, ‘What’s happened with my life?'”

Zut alors! It is as I thought!

Austen ‘too ugly’ for book cover

“I know you are not supposed to judge a book by its cover. Sadly people do. If you look more attractive, you just stand out more,” said Ms Trayler.

And, uh, those kind of eejits are gonna, like, uh, y’know, like, uh, read Jane Austen, y’know what I’m sayin’?

We All Scream

Taking a cue from Comedy Central Insider’s Comedian-Inspired Ice Cream Flavors, I decided to create my own flavors, based on my life experiences. What better way to commemorate a humiliating failure or brush with death than by naming an ice cream in its honor?

OMG.

I’m glad my stomach was empty.

Safe for work, Christians and other children.

It’s words, you cowards! And no Fs in them, either.

“Apple Dreams” At World Financial Center’s Winter Garden, Friday And Saturday 7PM, March 23 & 24

March 23, 2007

AppleD

This is the official description from the World Financial Center’s website:

H.T. CHEN & DANCERS’APPLE DREAMS

Friday & Saturday, March 23 & 24 :: 7pm :: Winter Garden

Choreographed by H.T. Chen.
Performed by H.T. Chen & Dancers and community members.

Apple Dreams, a site-specific work created for the Winter Garden, is H.T. Chen’s vision of a microcosm of activity lying beneath the bustle of daily city life. Set against an original sound score by Fitz Patton, intimate moments of serenity and hope are juxtaposed with forceful expressions of human industry. Dancers march boldly through the space, slowly entwining as if searching for something, while parents strut their children about in strollers like proud peacocks. Ultimately, Chen uses the refuge of the Winter Garden’s palm trees as the setting for a spiritual journey to find meaning and beauty within the cracks of an urban world.

H.T. Chen & Dancers is an innovative modern dance company which has created a uniquely Asian-American expression by embodying its cultural heritage, infusing Western modern dance with the strength and beauty of Asian aesthetics.

Commissioned by arts > World Financial Center with support from
the Council for Cultural Affairs, Taiwan, ROC and Hugh L. Carey
Battery Park City Authority. Co-presented by H.T. Chen & Dancers.

For more information visit H.T. Chen’s website.

And this is the official description from H.T. Chen’s website:

H.T. Chen’s use of space, dynamics and imagery is masterful and the Winter Garden captures his imagination as a canvas for Apple Dreams. Scenes expand and contract, bringing the viewer on a journey from the mundane to the magical. Mr. Chen paints in broad strokes, yet allows intimate details to emerge. In one scene, 15 dancers fill the space with running, shouting, spinning – creating a vortex of energy. This is followed by a scene where a tiny boy ventures alone into the woods in search of treasure. Infants, elders, tree ghosts, colorful banners and goddesses inhabit the fantastical world of Apple Dreams.

I say they’re both wrong! Sue me for my (as usual!) impertinence.

I’ve watched them rehearse bits of this over the past several weeks. Last night I got to see a dress rehearsal of the assembled bits.

It’s a spectacle of life, death, youth, old age, birth, rebirth, chaos, magic, dreams, and features a goddess, banners, mist, and even a pedicab! It occupies the entire public space of the Winter Garden as its stage, using the palm trees in its story!

The score at one point has a killer driving techno sound that I’d love to get as an MP3 file. I’m going to miss hearing that! I’m also going to miss the Ha!s that are yelled out at one point. It’s really something to see!

Even with a 6-megapixel Casio Exilim camera, my photos still suck. Flash photography was prohibited. The Red Eye Reduction kept going off and I couldn’t find a way to make it shut up, either. Good thing it was a borrowed camera; its interface is the worst and I won’t be buying one!

I’ve put up a Flickr set of all the photos I took. Go see it. As large as those photos are, they are still reductions of the originals. I’ll be giving Mr. Chen a CD of the originals for him to have and, if he has the facilities, to share with his dancers. (And, yes, I had some favorite dancers; see captions at the Set.)

My one good photo is because I could use the flash. It’s of Mr. Chen himself:

Get to the Winter Garden and see the spectacle. You have two chances, tonight and tomorrow at 7PM!

WordPress Has Gone Insane Again

March 23, 2007

I’m seeing that all the photos on my site have had their links busted!

I’ve contacted support.

I hope this will be fixed soon.

Dammit!

Standby. And have lots of patience. I sure don’t!

Update: WordPress support reply was just about immediate.  They are working on it.
