Guillermo Del Toro

Yes, today I worked the HELLBOY 2 premiere and that is Guillermo, the nicest, most talented director I have met in a long time. I have to say I was pretty impressed. I'm not saying I'd like to run around alone in his imagination or anything, ahem Pans lab and Hellboy creatures, but wow, he is soooo awesome! Usually I wouldn't think my life is much, but today, you all can be jealous!!!! Yeah! :)

Fox studios visit

Yesterday i headed to the Fox lot to see a short film a friend of mine had wrote, produced and directed. It was called Jarred and he was able to have a screening at the 'Little Theater' on the lot. Obviously this dude is a big wig over there at Fox. The silliest thing is that I live a good 45 minutes (about 14 miles) from the Fox lot. and the movie was 11 minutes long. Ummm.....I was so gonna not go, but when you have made a short film, you want support however you can get it. After the 11 minutes, i should have gone with my gut and not shown up.

anyhow, my wonderfully sweet neighbor and friend decided to throw caution to the wind and go with me. So after the 11 minutes, I had no other choice but to buy him dinner. the movie cost me money. Now the movie wasn't horrible, and for a directorial debut, it is amazing that it was shot on FILM, oh the glory days of filmmaking. But I have a film degree and made many a short in my day, so it is tough to watch things with my unflinching eye. i think my friend Izzy put it best when he said, 'even at 11 minutes, it seemed long.'

Fast forward to him and i trying to make our getaway and find our route out of the studio. Driving out, i screamed, STOP!!!!! i saw a donut and a Homer hand. I needed to take a picture and blog about it. And in front? a little Bart topiary. Behind all these Simpsons statues is the house Springfield built. It looks like that little house and the large two story apartment across the way are where all the Simpsons magic happens. I am not impressed by much, but this made me giddy.

So I am currently at the Four Seasons spending Father's Day talking to the director and stars od the new movie, WANTED. This is a picture of Timur Bekmambetov, who also directed DAY WATCH and NIGHT WATCH. Timur (promounced Tee-More) is an amazing director who is so focused, intelligent, inventive and creative. But the funniest thing is trying to talk to the director about the movie and not give anything away. We were both laughing about trying to dance around the themes so we wouldn't do that.

Seriously folk, WANTED is one of the best movies I have seen all summer. The special effects, stunts, story and acting are all sooo impressive. I absolutely loved the gore, blood, beauties, and the themes of a nobody that gets transformed into an assasin of justice in 6 weeks flat. I may pay to see this movie when it comes out, it was that good. And the only other movie I have wanted to see again this summer is IRON MAN, so you know what company WANTED is in!!!!

Portland Thai food

And now I am sitting on the patio outside a delightful little thai restaurant in Portland. I'm having Tom Yum with tofu and it is surprisingly delicious! Tara-thai in Northwest Portland, I think....I'll reminisce about this city in another post. For now, I chow. :)

And yes...

I play the penny slots. And when I need it to 'hit big' I scream, unleash the mighty copper storm onto my wallet. I am a wordsmith, I know. As wisconsin and Montana natives look on 'at that crazy Chinese girl!'


This is what a winner looks like!

The start...

This is the start of my small winning streak at Planet Hollywood. If I may just admit, I was screaming 'unleash the copper furry into my wallet' as I spun the wheel of fortune 'spin' wheel. I LOVE that game!!!!! That and craps. I am asian through and through.

Swimsuit mania

Hey high rollers! I am sittng in a cabana in vegas's luxurious Bellagio hotel. And if I mauy just say, this place is smoking. There is a kitchen, TV, misters, and even my sister, the poster child for responsible gambling, has been enticed enough by the amenities to forgo the casino. The world is turned upside down in vegas baby! I hear Paris Hilton is in town. Oh, that is a blog entry if I ever knew of one.

This is what tired, drunken debauchery looks like! Night 1 in vegas babies! Tomorrow, more pics of fun. But now I will sleep. I have a voice over in the am. But honestly, after yelling in a night club for a few hours, I dunno how solid my voice is. Only time will tell my brothers.
