When B woke me up last Saturday on the afternoon of 8th March, I was still caught up in a deliciously lazy dream. I couldn’t remember what it was about but any thought of spending some time to recollect my thoughts on the dream immediately vanished when B said that a Malaysian Airlines plane was missing and Jun was on board!
The only Jun I know is B’s friend and schoolmate, a long-time steward with Malaysian Airlines so could it be him B was referring to? In the midst of my drowsiness, I initially too... read more »
At the Queens World Film Festival Awards, held Saturday night at the Long Island City restaurant Dutch Kills Centraal, one of the winners (unfortunately, I forget who) was greatly enthused about her win, and her moment in the spotlight, to the point where she stood up on a chair and led a brief chant of "In-die film! In-die film!" It was a giddy moment, a moment of solidarity with her fellow filmmakers and an audience supportive of an artist at the start of her career.When most people think of independen... read more »
Saturday was the last day of the Queens World Film Festival and the Nesva Hotel was buzzing with activity. The block of films I watched were genre movies of various stripes, including Recursion and My Art is Not Dead, which I saw opening night. The new stuff included:- King Theodore Live, about an alien intelligence who inhabits the body of an Earth woman just to meet a member of his favorite rock band. Fun premise, and the original music wasn't bad, but I didn't feel any sense of urgency to the story. I... read more »
Let's get straight to the movies in this post. They were seen last night in two blocks at P.S. 69:Odessa is a short about an astronaut on her last night before going up in space for a long, long time, and her chance encounter with a stranger in a bar. You could call thisGravitymeets Before Sunrise: the key here lies not only in what the actors say, but what they don't say, which makes for a nice character study. Here's the website.Katia, from Russia, is a doc about a girl traveling through India. She gre... read more »
Iconoclastic director Spike Lee recently made some statements about the changing, gentrifying face of New York in general and Brooklyn in particular. Whether or not you think gentrification is a good thing is a separate issue. What had me thinking, especially after writing about the changes to Long Island City and Astoria yesterday, was how this issue relates to Queens. I've lived in both East Elmhurst and now Jamaica; I remember how Queens used to look and I'm familiar with how it looks now, and while I... read more »

Sedikit ulasan : Jika dunia ini diibaratkan sebuah buku, anda tidak akan pernah tahu indahnya sebuah buka jika hanya melihat covernya tanpa membacanya halaman demi halaman. Begitu juga  read more »
Long Island City is right up against the edge of Queens, facing the East River. For Manhattanites, it's the first stop off of the Queensborough Bridge, but for me, living all the way the hell in the southeastern part of the borough, it's as far away as you can get before you start to swim, and in recent years, I've begun to feel that distance. LIC, andAstoria to the north, are becoming the hip places to be in Queens now, and for a Kew lifer like me, I still find it hard to believe that we could ever be c... read more »
