Catching up again

I did manage to get my latest pics up on Flickr from the House of PainT, as well as the last World Beats and Eats fundraiser. Their next event is to raise money for Pride Ottawa-Gatineau - July 7th at the SAW Gallery. Tasty (free) food, great beats, a special show by HUMP, and art from La Petite Mort gallery. Should be an awesome show - as usual.

Coming up is the Fringe Festival parade tonight at Art's Court on Daly, and Freshest Steps, by CrazySmooth, with breakers from UK, Montreal, Toronto, NY, and California, as well as lots of great local talent.  Also will be graffiti, live hair stylin, and, of course, giveaways. It's this Saturday, June 17th, 12-8 at Notre-Dame de l'Ile, 115 Sacre Couer in Hull.

Last weekend was bonding with my daughter as I drove to Toronto - we played each other's CD's. I like her Common (produced by Kenye West), she liked my Blackalicious. Was a weekend of family and friends - met up with my friend Jen, stayed at my sister's, visited mother, family dinner at my brother's. Caught some young breakers down at City hall, as well as a lot of graffiti between Keele and Dundas W stations on the Bloor line. Some new, some there for quite a while. Working on editing and uploading now - before I fill the memory card up again.

Kill Bill Too

I rented "2" last night, only saw the first one a few months ago and loved them both. Quentin T described the first one as the setup, and this as the real story. I loved it - great characters, beautiful photography, hot Uma. My new favorite hot actress actor- I hope Susan Sarandon doesn't hear of this, but I had to drop her. The movie was on DVD - such a joy to watch. Yes, the letterbox looks a little strange on my TV, and there isn't the great theatre sound, but there were no annoying people behind me explaining the plot over and over to each other, and if I needed to stretch my sore back, or get some wine, or go to the bathroom I could just pause. Plus there was some great background by Quentin and several of the actors. And finally, IMDB has some great trivia on both this, and the first one.

Also caught a neat movie on Space the other night, eXistenZ. The story opens with a reality game designer testing her latest creation with a focus group, when an assassin attacks her, damaging her organic game pod, and the only copy of the game. She escapes with a marketing intern, and then tries to see how badly the game is damaged by entering its world with her sidekick. They start playing the game, with occasional breaks back to the real world - or is it the real world. They're never really sure, and neither are you.
