Pahole Vlogs about the SF International Asian American Film Festival

So, Marissa (who is my roomie extraordinaire and often mistaken as my twin – it’s the Russian nose!) stumbled upon the gold mine that is this series of vlogs featuring none other than one of my favorite people, Pahole Sookkasikon (known to many also as Mr. Hyphen… AND Mr. Mesa – zot zot!). In these vlogs, he gives us a behind the scenes look at the makings of the San Francisco International Asian American Film Festival.

And yes, I included 3 episodes. You can thank me later.

This last one is a little hard to see/hear, but it’s fun nonetheless.

A Visit with The Revolution

Refusing to let the HAND of the MAN hold them down.

Traci and Patrick made a stop in San Francisco and stayed at Casa Barker/Jimenez last night. It was really really great to see them. They’ve embarked on a journey from Orange County to Portland. I know, I’m jealous too. But we can live vicariously through them via the blog.

Kate and Jesse were also here and it was a lovely evening full of vegan-friendly dinner (fried gnocchi with amazing sauce) and chats about the food industry, our mutual loves of all things knit/crochet, and craft fairs. Big big plans always occur when I’m around my like-minded crafty people.

International Beer Day: Where will you be celebrating?

Happy Monday, kids. I thought I’d share a web banner that I made tonight for the good folks who are organizing International Beer Day. read more »

Absolute Kinography

Dziga Vertov’s Man with a Movie Camera (1929) is without a doubt one of the most visually inspiring films I have ever seen. It’s a big statement, I know. But it’s the truth. read more »

Craftgasm, or: Renegade Craft Fair

Oh yes… OH YES! It’s happening. It’s free. It’s at Fort Mason in San Francisco. Hopefully the weather will be a lot nicer than the last time Renegade was in town. And hopefully I’ll see more of my favorite crafty people IN THE FLESH! The crafting world has its share of celebs as well – “you better believe it” – as my Dad likes to say.

Anyway, we’re two weeks away! I have a lot of friend/family birthdays coming up. I can’t wait to see what I can find.
