How’s it going….well it’s another year. 2011. I got a lot going on here. Here’a what’s on the burner;
1. Bay Area Day of Remembrance Working on the graphic for Bay Area Day of Remembrance again after a one year hiatus. This is my fourth time doing it. Last year they had someone else do it. I must say, it looks like gao-see. My design is a photograph of Manzanar by Dorothy Lange. It has the American flag as the center piece and the row of barracks lined up in perspective. I made it look like a night scene in blue with only the flag in color.
2. Window Blinds Apartment #1 moved in and I found out the previous tenant removed the window blinds and put up these ugly dark curtains. Now I am to replace it. So I went to Home Depot and custom cut three blinds. I knew it was gonna be two inches shorter, hoping it’ll work…it didn’t! What a waste. Now I’m going to Costco tomorrow and custom order a 66″ long window blind.
3. Project 20 I was cited for the first time in my life for speeding. I don’t know exactly how fast I was going, probably 70mph or so in a 65 mph zone, but I was just following the pack when I was pulled over. I couldn’t find my insurance form when the fascist pig asked for it. A week later I got a bill for $704. What the hell…I went to the walk-in court in San Rafael. I got it reduced to $260 amidst paying about $200 in traffic school and other fees. Hell no…I ain’t gonna pay the goddamn system $260. I chose to work it off. The Project 20 office in SF charged me another $40 to get assigned. I chose to work it at Kimochi. So here I am…washing dishes for three hours a day. I am to put in 26 hours….$10 an hour. So that’s like nine f*cking days. So far I’ve put in twelve hours. I’m pissed off!
4. Mochitsuki I participated in the mochitsuki by the SF Taru Mikoshi group. It was held in Sebastopol last month. Here’s a bunch of movies I’ve uploaded on YouTube.
