I'm also an organizer at a theater group working from Skid Row. We have put on shows at major theaters, as well as less typical venues such as prisons and a tour of Bolivia.
Talking Heads, Sun Ra, Bach, Ella Fitzgerald, Omar Souleyman, Leonard Cohen, Tinariwen.
Taste of Cherry, Fanny and Alexander, Tropical Malady, Perfumed Nightmare, Black Cat White Cat, Meshes of the Afternoon, Sans Soleil...
I enjoy obscure films but I also watch Hollywood ones with dinosaurs that fall in love with robots and fight attractive pirates. I prefer to watch this type of film on Tuesday or Wednesday at Highland Theaters.
Last favorite fictions: My Name Is Red, View of Dawn in the Tropics, Season of Migration to the North & Bartleby the Scrivener. Plus Harold and the Purple Crayon.
101 Noodle Express (Alhambra)
who, rising at night to his
harp and flute,
saw a cup in my hand
“Drink your grape blood against my lips!”
And the moon was cut like a D,
on a dark robe, written in gold.
- Shmuel Hanagid
