If my friend Kat/Spookfish Theater has put on a new theater production before I've churned out a new blog post, then shame on me.
In any case, yes, my friend Kat/Spookfish Theater have a new show coming out!
The details are as follows:
Written and Performed by Ming Peiffer
Developed with and Directed by Kat Yen
Part documentary and part solo-show, The ABC's Guide To Getting Famous is a raw look into the real lives of Asian American artists trying to make it in the entertainment industry. Funny, heartbreaking, and, at times, downright offensive...This hybrid film/theater piece is an honest investigation of race in casting..

There you have it folks, go support the arts. Especially underrepresented folks in the arts.
Speaking about art, lately I've been working on a set of large paintings/portraits to go above the bed, since it's just a large plain white wall now. Mine's ::aaaaalmost:: done (still some much-needed tweaking still needs to be done), and I'm just starting on Colin's (so that one's really rough):
Can you believe that it'll be NOVEMBER in a week? I'll be 26! Colin and I would have been together for 5 years! Barack Obama will be president for a second-term/we'll have a Mormon president!
