Busta Rhymes, so fishy!

Pretty much all Busta’s music videos from the late nineties/early millenium used Fish Eye lens and I respect that consistency…

Something to think about!

Blank by Bruce Reisman

Blank, the new play by Bruce Reisman, had my handsome Valentine and I wiping tears by the end. It’s 1947 and a famous playwright, skillfully played by Joel Bryant, has released himself from a mental hospital. Soon after, a young novelist Tom, convinces him to adapt his novel into a Broadway play. Their collaboration sets the stage for the men’s roller coaster ride of emotions. Kris Black is terrific as Tom especially while delivering a regret riddled, heart squeezing, closing monologue that leaves you thinking about a hopeful sadness. Hawk D’Onofrio is sweetly charming as the typist Charlie. His ease and trustworthy friendliness contrasts the other men’s more manic neurosis. Donna Scott and Kabby Borders are delightful as Logan’s sparing former and current wives. Farah Fath hurricanes through as Charlie’s no filter wife, Nora, ironically shining light on the situation. Fath delivers Nora with humor and poignancy that will put a smile on your face. The intimacy of the Ruby Theatre at the Complex, in Hollywood, makes for a delightful theatre experience. I can’t believe you haven’t even seen this yet. Better get those tickets. http://blank.brownpapertickets.com/ .

Resistance is Futile ~ Star Trek Art Show

HAPPY 2013 TO TREKKIES && NON-TREKKIES ALIKE!!

What a fun night I had a couple weeks ago at the Q Pop Shop!! There was a Star Trek art show called “Beam Me Up” where tons of folks spent their Saturday night on Feb. 16 – quite the eventful meeting of the United Federation of Los Angeles Star Trek lovers. Here’s a link to the sweetest Q Pop Shop exhibit of the year – Beam Me Up!

There were all sorts of paintings and sand drawings of various Star Trek series characters, embroideries and action figure collectibles, antique tricorders and screen-printed shirts, tons and tons more. I didn’t get to drink any Romulan Ale. I heard it sold out pretty early in the night, so I’ll have to get it next time! The dj was supposed to be playing “Star Trek tunes” but I couldn’t hear a thing, wish I had some borg implants to help me hear better!! Hahah.

Anyway here’s some photos of the show. I’m hoping to attend a convention this year, wish me luck! :)

Can anybody guess who the top painting is? He’s a special guy for Star Trek, definitely a special guy. And of course, Spock keeping it logical.

Red Alert

This couple was so cool! The dude made both costumes and he owned all the gadgets on display in the previous photo. I asked for a photo while debating what series is the best, too awesome… (we agreed TNG then Voyager).

Star Trek Art - Worf

This won my heart, what a jem. You can practically hear Worf growling!!

Building a Mystery Korn Hole Room

In the late nineties/ early millennium there was a secret place that spawned the world’s most famous musicians. It wasn’t a large city nor a small town. It could not be found on a map of any kind. It was a secret room which we like to call the “Korn Hole Room”.

This “Korn Hole Room” was not a place for playing the traditional game of Cornhole that we all adore. It was a room where stardom was incubated. This room contained a luminous magic that could help propel a human person from being unknown to world famous. All that  was required of this human person was to have the ability to sing or speak in a manner that was indecipherable. The light energy would engulf the singer/rapper as he or she performed an entire musical song and like magic, the human person would become world famous.

Musicians such as Korn and Lil’ Wayne have reaped the benefits of performing in this secret room. After performing the single “Freak On Leash” in the fantastical room, Korn dominated the musical charts. The single was released in many places around the world. The music video if you look closely at the picture above, actually gives a glimpse into the mysterious Korn Hole Room. The video was hailed and won the Best Form Music Video award at the 2000 Grammy Awards Ceremony of Awards for Music and Music Videos.

Holes of Light of Succe$$

See Lil’ Wayne in the Korn Hole Room performing his debut hit single “The Block is Hot” The single was released on his debut album “The Block is Hot” which became #1 on Billboard’s Hip Hip/ R&B charts in 1999 and he’s been a household name ever since.

Singer/ Songwriter Sarah McLachlan can also be seen performing in the Korn Hole Room. Her chart topper “Building a Mystery” debuted in the room back in 1997 before Lil’ Wayne and Korn was a thought in the Korn Hole Rooms brain.

Sarah in the Korn Hole

With all the mysterious success behind the Korn Hole Room, we became increasingly curious about it…WHERE IS THIS ROOM? WHAT IS THIS ROOM? we needed answers and we needed them fast mostly because its been more than 10 years since this room was even relevant.

The answers to all of our Korn Hole questions were answered after watching the entirety of Sarah Mclachlan’s video for “Building a Mystery”. The Korn Hole Room was none other than…

Sarah’s Korn Hole Dress

Sarah McLachlan’s Dress!!!! It’s a Korn Hole Dress! By god, why didn’t we think of it before? It makes sense that this beautiful women with her beautiful heart songs would have the soul bearing ability to wear a dress that is a room which illuminates success upon aspiring male musicians!

Korn Hole

It’s revealed that a seamstress man wielded the gown especially for Sarah. The magical seamstress man remains a mystery for us still. We have only screenshots of what he looks like and they are not well lit.

The magic, we suspect, is wielded into the fabric and a magical light is ignited. The carefully placed korn holes allow just the right amount of high power light through and into the skirt of the garment.

Korn Hole

The only question we had left was how it was possible for Sarah to be both wearing the dress and also be inside the Korn Hole Room? Don’t worry we figured it out.

There is a single hole which allows the chosen one to pass. This hole only allows the one who can activate the magic that lies within dresses fabric. This human is Sarah McLachlan without her it would merely be your everyday Korn Hole dress.  Mystery solved, K thanks.

Rollin’ Hard: Beautiful Katamari

Pretty Cool Land’s Royal Court Presents…

Beautiful Katamari

Lord and Lady of the Cosmos

While on an all-American, West Coast vacation, I couldn’t help but think, “Wow! this is so beautiful. So beautiful that I really want to roll all of this beauty up into a ball. The cows grazing in the meadows, roll em up! The picket fences and flower patches, roll em up! the sea shells and drift woods, roll those up too!”

What?! Why would anyone want to roll up the beauty into a ball? Well, when you spend countless hours playing the third-person puzzle game Beautiful Katamari you might begin to understand.

Game Manuals: Ultimate Fantasy Literature?

Fantasy literature did not appeal to me at all when I was younger. It was annoying to have to sort through books about unicorns and castles when I was just trying to find a book about hive mind aliens and putting the internet into a female human body.

But now I love it! After reading some of Margot’s amazing game manuals, I finally realized how dark and brutal and totally entertaining fantasy literature can be!

Angelina kept sticking her leg out of this dress all night at the Oscars. It was goofy. Then I saw this today:
