Attended from June 21-23, 2018
I know I’m LOOONNG overdue in writing this! Yes, I’ll get better….NEXT year!
Not many things brings an old woman getting closer to retirement joy than to attend a film festival that is highlighting one of her favorite Japanese actors! Nothing brings more joy than being so close but unlike some of her friends on Facebook and Twitter, too chicken to take that quick selfie with said actor; however, I still feel my drama and movie life is complete having been in the same room and breathing the same air with Takumi Saito!! Yes, yes! Without even flying across the waters, this encounter was a dream come true!

G-Dragon aka Kwon Ji-yong

Friends that when you get to hang out with them and talk to them, its like you’ve known them for years!! Okay, I digress from the real reason you probably came to check out this blog post.

More to come for September 2017 when me and my BAP concert buddies do a repeat and we go see K.A.R.D at the Warner Theater in Washington, D.C. Continue reading
Planet Earth II (2016)
I remember 10 years ago when the first series was released, I still had cable at the time and I encountered the original Planet Earth show on BBC America and I was literally enthralled and transformed into the show. I immediately went out on Amazon and bought the entire series on Blu-ray! I finished the series watching my personal copy and never regretted a single penny that I spent on the series because it was simply magnificent! So, now we fast-forward 10 years and it is amazing that Sir David Attenborough and the producers have managed to top the previous series which even I thought was impossible! Continue reading
