  • The day I thought I lost everything

    On October 15th, 2006, Driving West on I-10 freeway, after the meeting in Crenshaw and going to the coffee shop in West LA, suddenly, my car stops its engine. It was around Fairfax where it curves slightly to the left. I managed to stop my car at the middle island, didn’t know what to do for a couple minutes. I didn’t have a place to live at that time. I was couch-surfing, staying at Echo Park. Working on a feature film, I chose my life to do what I want to do. I didn’t chose to work for a company. I decided to join a feature film project. We shot […]

  • Google Wave for Dummies

  • Fumiko’s Propose – A Japanese students’ animation work

    OK. When I saw this, I was stunned. This 2 min animation was produced by the group of Japanese anime students in Kyoto. For your convenience, there is some storyline. Fumiko is a middle school student (?). She proposes Takashi to be her boyfriend. But Takashi refuses her offer since he wants to devote his time for baseball at this moment…. Fumiko gets shocked and shocked… and shocked…… anyway… here is the anime. Without a further due, here you go…. [youtube=] Those of whom got confused… it looks like Fumiko traveled around the world, and came back to where Takashi is. And she tried one more time… “I will cook […]
