Burn the Fllor

My friend and I went to see Burn the Floor this weekend at the Post Theatre. It was a little uneven for me because I like some styles of dance more than others. But there were amazing moments, like when the dancer floated as someone twirled her, and the great rendition of Rolling on the River...16 dancers, 2 percussionists and 2 singers, all amazing.
Just through this weekend in San Francisco.
For a great review:

MonkeyBoy, eggchairsteve and Tate

We got out to see the Serpent Mother on Treasure Island last night and we were surprised to see so many of our dear friends there that we did not know were coming, beginning with Homouroboros (But the Monkeys were not spinning), it was great to see them. Then our good friends all, Mark and Janet, Annetta and Greg and Sierra with her new fiance and their friend Ryan, and then Steve and Tate (Tate is gorgeous and getting taller) suprised us, and Nelda stopped to say hello on our way out.

It is always a special treat to see everyone when you are not expecting them and get big hugs.

Serpent Mother was gorgeous lit up, although we missed the fire.

Factory Party

hanging with Edie and Andy
highlight of the evening

This First Friday spectacular art, music, and film event celebrates the works of
regional artists and pays tribute to Andy Warhol and his Factory, the original New York City studio from 1962 to 1968. The Factory Party takes place in a massive warehouse space divided into nine distinct rooms where guests are immersed in a wide range of art mediums, as well as live art, musical performances and theatrical art forms. A portion of this event features a re-creation of Andy Warhol’s Factory, and is brought you by the East Bay Express. Visitors entering the Factory will see live production of art in the style and process performed by Andy Warhol, including silk screening, filming, screen testing, and painting. Velvet Underground cover bands will perform, recreating sounds at the Factory. Guests are encouraged to dress in their 1960’s best and are welcome to lounge in the Factory with “Warhol” and his “Super Stars”.
Best interactive art: walking through square of light on the floor created movement and sqiggles on the wall.

Warhol Live at the De Young


MonkeyBoy is not working right now so we seem to be getting out more. We went to see Andy Warhol Live and the Yves St. Laurent exhibits at the De Young, and they were fabulous. I wish I had photos to show you but no photos allowed.
Warhol Live was great. My favorite parts were the quotes on the walls and the "room". The room was a montage of slides changing and moving, there was a pile of cushions where you could lie down and look up. my fav...

"Everyone will be famous for 15 minutes"...I'm bored with that line. I never use it anymore. My new line is "In 15 minutes everybody will be famous."

Gross National Happiness

Gross National Happiness is the attempt to define the quality of life in more holistic and psychological terms than the gross national product.
Gotta love that as a goal for a country.
