I so love the Taiwan puppet theater. It's some of the authentic Taiwan culture that remains. Shot some from nearby temple on the way for lunch. Peace and respect to the families of 228!
Had my first real connection with Utterz. I've used it and replied to some of my friends several times, but today just listened to a reply from Rich Palmer and I really loved it. Rich answered a question I left home regarding his post on Boston Stoker coffee. He told a great story, I loved it so I'm sharing it. What do you think?
Future of Music and music as a stream advocate Gerd Leonhard has just published this new book which is a collection of essays on the distribution of music in this post Napster online P2P world. You can buy a copy or download .pdf for free. Gerd's ideas on this space are quite brilliant and probably very realistic as many of his initial projections are basically occurring now.
SaReGaMa's The 4 Elements nice electro/ambient/world music mashup. All of SaReGaMa's stuff is nice. They also do other stuff available on Jamendo too. So get inside Jamendo sample and stream or download to your heart's content.
Just off on a jaunt with nice weather and Xacti in tow. Found some great dub music to add to images. I so love my Taichung.
I lucked out and got my own private lion dance demo from these kids that were practicing for upcoming Chinese New Year's festivities. Nice huh?
Ryan a new member of Xacti Users Group I'm part of has really nice VOG(his term for video blog). He posted this really touching piece on a memorial in honor of a young boy that was tragically murdered in Honolulu by his neighbor. rather than saying, "hope you enjoy it"-I'll just say watch it and reflect a little.
Depth Charge Discussions is a new video project entered into by myself and Len Edgerly, another indie media friend hailing from Cambridge,MA and Denver,CO. You can watch our first video here dealing with the topic of Len's experiences with racism growing up in Boston. The next episode will be me sharing on my own experiences growing up in Brooklyn, NY.
Hello friends the "Pig" is now bacon and the "Rat" is gnawing at the door. The new year is the Year of the Rat. So I've arranged some music that has rat or attributes of the rat in it's song title.
People born in the Year of the Rat are noted for their charm and attraction for the opposite sex. They work hard to achieve their goals, acquire possessions, and are likely to be perfectionists. They are basically thrifty with money. Rat people are easily angered and love to gossip. Their ambitions are big, and they are usually very successful. They are most compatible with people born in the years of the Dragon, Monkey, and Ox.
Have a great new year! Support art by buying music, show tickets or other items from the artists.

Oneof the benefits of living in Taiwan is the delicious Oolong Tea that grows here. I demonstrate how to make a pot the easy way.
