Silver Summit

January 19, 2009

Sondra and Ahram’s band Silver Summit played at Doug Fir last night. They sounded great and the venue was incredible. The first time I’d ever seen an organized drink line. Courtesy is not dead!

A new fragrance by Anicka Yi and Maggie Peng. We missed the party, but were able to smell the perfume. The name comes from the Japanese exile Fusako Shigenobu, former founder and leader of the Japanese Red Army, who was arrested in Osaka after hiding out in Lebanon for years.

Great Moments in HUGS

December 17, 2008

HUGS is Andrew and Josh’s weekly dance party/drink night at LIT on 2nd Avenue. I haven’t gone in years, but they’re still going strong and they have the best flyers ever. Thought I’d share a few of their recent hits.

Photo Op | Casting

October 1, 2008

A new addition to the Historical Fiction Press catalogue. Eriko Miyagawa’s casting photos from the Kite Runner, a film she worked on over a year ago. The photos feature faces of ethnic minorities from the Western Chinese province of Xinjiang. When we saw the photos, we were amazed by the diversity of ethnicities, ages and expressions.

Deka Ray

September 11, 2008

Eugenie Huang creates beautiful, architecturally-inspired jewelry.

Designing without literal representation of iconic ornamental forms, Ms. Huang creates objects that are familiar but not precisely realistic. Her work is otherworldly and technological in thought-process, yet imbued with the ambiance of natural environment as a tactile, material influence. Inspired by Edwin Abbot’s notion of humankind being the privileged inhabitants of “Spaceland”, Ms. Huang imagines she is reeling in glimpses of extra dimensions in her 3D manifestations.
