April 13, 2009 Workshop this week!

So we’re having a workshop this Wednesday.  All are welcome. It’s free! 
Here is the flier.

2ndflier150dpi1 Workshop this week!

I’m getting the hang of this whole blogging ordeal.  In fact, I’m starting to get kinda crazy over this, but I hope I don’t turn out to be some super nerdy blogging freak. At this point it looks like I’m headed right toward that direction, but I can’t really help it because I’ve got a lot of work that I”m excited about and proud of.

Last night, that’s right last night I shot the Ruby Sue and the Ethereal Blues band (www.myspace.com/rubysueandtheetherealblues) They’re a really cool sounding band, I want to describe their as kinda cool and funky, but I’m no expert on music.  Ruby Sue, the lead singer describes it as like “lounge-y,” and I didn’t really know what that meant until I actually listened to it, and I thought “Yeah! It is kinda lounge-y,” I think the best way to really find out is to find out for yourself from their myspace.

Their CD is coming out so here are some shots for their CD/press/myspace that I really like.

Oh, and I slapped my logo on there with a little red accent to match their band and their colors. And…I think I like it!

some good food and some good music.

I believe those are two things that can make anyone’s day better.

So let me tell you the main difference between Chinese/Asian food to American food.

The names of Chinese food sounds terrible, but the taste is amazing. For example “stinky tofu” or “pigs feet.” Sounds weird right? But man those taste amazing.
Conversely, American food sounds amazing, but taste…not that amazing.  For example “Sauerkraut-Stuffed Slow-Cooked Pork Roast.” Yeah it sounds good, but sometimes they just don’t taste that great.  And plus most of American food isn’t healthy.

Let me break down Chinese food for you a little more. You can tell how authentic a Chinese restaurant is by looking who’s serving the food.  If there are Chinese people serving food, then you’re good.  If white people are serving Chinese food, (i.e P.F Changs) yeah that’s not so great. The second, and very successful method goes like this…
Look at what letter they received for their Grade.
C = Chinese for sure. You’re at the right place. It’s authentic. Real Chinese food tastes good and dirty.
A=Americanized Chinese food. Chances are you’re at a Panda Express or the upscale Panda Express called P.F. Changs.  Lots of orange chicken, and nothing real.
B = inBetween, or Both, the happy medium.   You’ve got good food and you know you’re not going to have any stomach problems.

Yup, that’s my third entry today, and probably my last for today. I’m just so excited about blogging!
