Jessica took me to see Momix Lunar Sea last night. The show which combines dance and the illusionary effects of blacklighting makes for quite a visual experience. It’s pretty neat when you can only see half of the dancers body and they can get away with some very neat tricks this way. I also really enjoyed the images that were being thrown onto the stage as they added to the overall atmosphere provided by the soundtrack. Hancher’s lighting wasnt quite perfect and there were times where i could see the dancer in all black or the tool that was being used for them to move around the stage. But i like to know secrets so that didn’t ruin anything for me. I’d reccomend this show to anyone who likes Visual arts, electronic music, or just film in general. How are other Momix shows? Do they use some of the same lighting techniques?

Lost comes back in 24 hours and I can say Im excited but not estatic. Somethings been off for me this season and its not quite as good. The Unit has started to drag me in. It’s very basic but just feels like a tom clancy movie. I’m actually looking more forward to Jericho’s return than Lost. Maybe it’s the feeling that it really isn’t going anywhere fast. Here’s hoping my HD Abc works tommorow, so I can see Hurley’s pores. ewwww gross.
Going out in a bit to see Appleseed Cast, Asobi Sesku and Skursula tonight. I first saw Appleseed Cast when I set up a show for them at my high school. Yeah it’s been that long ago. It’s amazing they are still a band. Anyway it will be the first show I’ve braved in quite some time. I think its a good thing, as I’ve receded more and more into my little computer/quais office in my free time.
just got back from seeing seinfeld in cedar rapids. he is very good at his standup routine and I really like his new jokes about collecting things that eventually become trash. it’s the culture we live in. Very good show, and a very good night in Cedar Rapids. Looking for a great place to eat downtown. Try Gringoes. Yummy.
