Happy Mother's Day mothers of the world. I love you all!!
things that went on this week:
Star Trek opened in theaters. The price of a single adult IMAX ticket was $15.75; Needless to say I didn't add to the box-office-opening pot. On an unrelated note does anybody have have a great DLP projector hooked up to a laptop with a bittorrent client? Just kidding RIAA. Don't kill my family and set my house on fire.
Its becoming a trend for people to recut Hindi film musical numbers with dirty English subtitles (see Eat Nipples) and I believe Buffalax was the originator. I guess the good thing is more people will have been exposed to Indian music and films.
Khan Noonien Sing | Space Seed Ep. 22 of Star Trek the original series
I got lured into this after catching an episode of Star Trek: Enterprise revolving around Arik Soong and the Augments (which sounds to me like an awesome Rockabilly Band now that I think of it)
Dance Like Michael Jackson - Far East Movement | Won't Even Start - David Choi
Directed by Wong Fu Productions
ABDC Season 3 | Quest (I sheepishly admit I watched the 1st two seasons of this show and enjoyed it; Quest is the dance group featured in Dance Like Michael Jackson; btw Wong Fu is a production house that has its origins at my alma mater UCSD)
Kokopelli came up in a conversation this week, and I began to realize that I am the only person who hadn't previously been familiar with him. Why is this important? Because in a way the idea of him has helped make this day possible. ;-)
Cusco - A city of a great ancient nation and a German synth band. That's a two-fer.
PGEW If you didn't know I was a foodie, then you know now. And just about nothing beats a gal who does it with frugality and class. Poor Girl Eats Well is my new superheroine.
Theremin - When I was in college I became familiar with the Teeny Tiny Pit Orchestra using a theremin in their silent film performances.
Song of India | Sadko - I just really liked this song that I had to know more. Typical me.
Sinbad the Sailor | Sadko
things for today:
