Flavorpill Halloween

Just a few photos from the Flavorpill Halloween party last night... more creativity with costumes! I was impressed this year.

Ichi the Killer

organ grinder & monkey. As soon as they saw my camera, they started their routine: surly faces and cranking, bouncing monkey, bashing cymbals, it was amazing.


My roommate was Lydia from Beetlejuice. I went as Gogo Yubari from Kill Bill, Volume 1.

Lydia & Vincent

Annie Hall - she was perfect. stature and everything. She had the floppy hat on, it's just faded into the background here, and my stupid finger is in the photo.

Dee Snyder and Slash - both perfect. Slash was unbelievable.

Here's a great one from last weekend: Magritte's Son of Man.

All Hallow's Madness

Last night Satish and I went to Judson Church for a NYxNY event (put on by NY Magazine) called All Hallow's Madness. As they put it:

New York by New York is an experiment in six parts. We're collaborating with some of our favorite bands, D.J.'s, vegan chefs, comedians, and underqualified art auctioneers on an event a month (six in all) through the beginning of the new year. We're not sure how they'll turn out.

There was a photo scavenger hunt that people with tickets had the opportunity to participate in all day. Upon arriving, one could hand in their memory card, and the winner would be announced right before the main performance of the night. Buying a ticket also got you an open bar and year's worth of New York Magazine. People were really creative with costumes; I saw Calvin & Hobbes, Wayne & Garth and a very politically incorrect Sharon Tate, among others.

Kudu, Dan Deacon and Chromeo performed; Satish and I mostly went for Chromeo. I saw my friend Tristan there, whom I actually met in the summer right after I put photos of his circuit bending performance on Flickr.

Dave 1

This was one of the best shows I have ever been to. For their encore, they came out with switched clothes (which was hilarious since Dave 1 is itty bitty and P-Thugg is a little larger). At the end, they pulled everybody up on stage to dance with them.

I shot a tiny bit of video and will upload them tomorrow. You can mostly hear Satish screaming along to the songs in all of them, which was great.

pumpkin carving

Originally uploaded by tokyohanna.
Sometimes I don't feel like an American at all. Last night I carved a pumpkin for the first time in my life. I don't know how that happened... maybe it wasn't huge in Puerto Rico when I was growing up? We did have Halloween though... no clue. I never did it in college either. There are a lot of American traditions or pop culture thingies that I absolutely didn't participate in, growing up. I haven't seen 90% of the 1980s movies that everybody quotes all the time (although I did fanatically watch Flight of the Navigator over and over for years). I just saw The Breakfast Club in 1999. I just saw High Fidelity this past summer. Name the movie and I probably have not seen it. Same with television shows (that one is even worse).

Anyway, it was definitely about time for this pumpkin thing. I did it at my apartment with my roommate and our mutual friend, Hobart.



I made one to match my mood.

I toasted these with salt afterwards. Also something I had never done (or eaten).

I'll take more photos when they're lit; they'll be on my Flickr photo stream.
