Britney Loves San Francisco

Britney couldn't do a Castro concert in SF, so she did an indoor concert and filmed a video montage.

Pretty nice stuff. :)

Disco'ed by the Soundcloud

70's Disco Dance Party Part II by DJ Lennie III

I absolutely <3 this mix. It's got some real 70's disco gems that most people don't know about. I smiled throughout the whole thing.

Simple pleasures.

Stevie Hoang - "Half A Chance" (New Music Track)

Nice new jam from an artist I'm not familiar with. He actually supported some of my favorite acts during their worldwide tours in the past couple of years. He supported JLS during 2010 and N-Dubz during 2009.

Photos From Last Night's Dinner: Cha-Ya Japanese Vegetarian

I always like to start with the Gyoza ( with a special treat of Asparagus and Peanut Sauce). I went with my usual "Kinoko" noodle dish (invaded with so many mushrooms!) with Soba. Mmmmm. It's a perfect meal for a rainy San Francisco evening. I also ran into a bunch of friends who were trying it for the first time. Yay!

SFIAAFF 2011: "Resident Aliens" Was My Favorite Film This Year

With one film left to go, I can say that my favorite film I saw this year was "Resident Aliens." It was a film I could connect to, even If I've never been through a similar experience. The stories of the main characters were very interesting. It really makes you reflect upon your own life and wonder are you living up to your potential.

ABOUT THE FILM:

n 2002, the United States began deporting former Cambodian refugees with criminal offenses, even those who had arrived as children or infants following the Cambodian genocide. RESIDENT ALIEN follows three such “returnees” as they adapt to an unfamiliar homeland after nearly a lifetime spent in the States; largely shunned by Cambodian society, with few skills and little money, they now must find a way to survive, or end up on the streets.

China vacillates between accepting that she’ll spend the rest of her life in Cambodia and shock that she’ll never again set foot in the United States. Her boyfriend Looney admits that he’s unhappy in their relationship, but is also completely dependent on her financially. The heart of the film, however, is KK, a breakdancer from Long Beach who struggles to show his family back home that he has changed for the better. Forced to leave his own young son in the States, he becomes a teacher and surrogate father to a breakdancing troupe of poor children in Cambodia (the Tiny Toones), with hope that it will save them from a life of poverty, and ultimately help him find his own path to redemption.
