OK, in order to keep up with the rising tide of pictures from my trip, let's start on them now.
In light of last week week's China Airlines fire in Japan, I was almost glad I ended up taking China Eastern Airlines this time. It required me to change planes in Shanghai instead of Taipei:
oh god, i'm never going to catch up on my blogs!
this is what I did today:
1) went to Softbank Hawk's baseball game.
2) went to Hard Rock Cafe after the game
3) went to Costco after that
4) took a much needed nap
5) went to 'Mega Trance' - stayed out until... ~5:30am!
6) wrote this blog!
I've got way too much video to edit. :-P
i'm kind of glad i only come back here once every 3-4 months... any more often and i might not survive! ;...Read more
Hey guys, I am in Japan right now! I flew in to Fukuoka yesterday and gave my seminar today. Things have been really busy and I've been running around to my old stomping grounds (i lived hear for almost two years until last August).

After the screening, a couple of us were able to get an invite to the official 'After Party' for Blood Brothers. When we got to the place, we saw a bunch of paparazzi crowding out front.

In addition to the red carpet premiere festivities, we also got to actually see the movie too. I've been looking forward to it for a while, but I had also heard from a few people that there were some problems with the movie... so I went into the screening with tempered expectations.
boy I've got my work cut out for me... took so many pictures and video last night, its going to take me a few days to prep it (hopefully I can get some done on the plane tomorrow!)
In the meanwhile, let me share some more photos, continuing from this blog.... think of it as a bit of a preview of whats to come:

The AnD crew headed down to Wanchai last night to check out the premiere screening of Daniel Wu's new film, 'Blood Brothers' ( 天堂口 ).

As many of you probably know, the AP picked up Jet's blog about action films in China... some presented it accurately, and picked up on the key point that he was pretty diplomatic in his words in order to avoid seeming critical but still pointing out the difficulty he faces.... some papers spun it a bit (adding words like 'Frustration'), and some (ehem - Read more
Last week I posted up that Jet Li Beer commercial... this time I have a sneak preview news of a movie I certainly hope never sees the light of day... the more you read, the worse it sounds:
Friday we met up in my neck of the woods (NT baby!) to check out the HK Ballet's production of 'Swan Lake' at the Shatin Community Theater. I've seen the China National Ballet do one act from Swan Lake during a US tour I went to back in the day, but this is the first time I've seen the whole thing. I enjoyed the show, especially the first and third acts. (these are the ones w/ 'norms' in it.... the other two acts are the 'swans'...
