Weekend ?Art Fest 2012

So one of the things with being on line on Twitter (Need a cell phone with internet I really need to get one of those) and face book is those sites really are for things that are short form ... So it feels weird to like put a blog on the book of face and it feels weird to do like a statement on (e:strip)... That being said I love mobile and think those are a great idea... Post a picture from say some event or cool art.....

So I didn't read them all but in today's online version not sure where in the paper if it was there where stories about the Allentown Art Festival.....

Now I've bought all kinds of art there... Dragon Pictures and other fantasy art, Photos, 3D, Animal Pictures, and then some odd stuff to... Now granted some of the art is also at the Elmwood Festival of the arts as well...That is a lot of fun also.... Some of those stuff is amazing and out of my budget and then some of it I love but don't the shelves or the mantel to put cool creatures or metal hanging planes or statues.....

Now then though there is also the yes they named it like 2 years ago as opposed to it being the unofficial oh don't go down there festival.... Yes there are bars that both days have all kinds of music and there will be all kinds of cool things going on there.... Last year think they had that car they were painting and a what ever you call that rag timey wash board and bucket base type of band shows up out of nowhere..... Plus more art.... The only thing is that street needs to be twice as wide it takes for ever to move down it like form noon on.... I can't imagine how insane Cantina Loco will be.....

Now I'm sure this isn't the only thing going on isn't there June Teenth ... I'll be going to see Memphis Sat.. Hoping I like it... It is a bit out of my comfort zone music wise but the review in the paper gave it like 3 out 4 so I'm sure it will be great....

The news also had a story about how it is the start of summer.... It really is it is festival time and the Harbor just started (I didn't go).....

So hope everyone has a great weekend what ever they are doing... Maybe I'll even get some art we shall see......

Dancing at Festival of the Arts UPDATED

So the elmwood festival of the arts is a sign summer is almost over, but it was a great time. It used to be for me Edge Fest. Yes when they had it down at the park. It was fun But it was sad cause it meant summer was over. Well summer for me Even though there is a peach festival I guess is over on Saturday with Music Is Art (yes I need to look up the acts from links on their facebook page, and get another battery and another Memory card). Then Summer is really over cause the Regular season of football starts on sunday. I think it kicks off on thursday.

Sunday at Elmwood Festival of the arts was my dance day. I don't remember if there where any kids but I don't think so here are some pictures from that........

Sorry can't post the pictures one of my sis friends cleaned up the computer and the pictures are gone, dude those aren't your pictures to get rid of, but what I can't figure out is if they got deleted why aren't they in the recycle bin maybe they are some place on the external hardrive that I can't find, I swear no fucking respect for someone elses files, fuck....

UPDATE:FOUND THE FILES good thing she did transfer them since the computer got fried I just want to go buy one and soon.....

UPDATE: When I couldn't find the files I put this into private mode

Update: not sure if wehen and how MIA pictures and pictures of (e:Drew)'s and chicken wing festival and (e:theecarey)'s birthday last night are all going to get up here but we shall see being the Peterazzi isn't all fun and games that reminds me anyone remember HOt or Not? Or rate my Picture was that an adult one? Ok to the pictures

Pictures from The Fair #1

"The Fair". Yes around here when you say that everyone knows you mean The Erie County fair, for sometime it was Called "America's Fair". Even though it wasn't run by the county it is in the county with the fiscal problems the name was changed. Not really sure who ran it, I heard it is some religous group but not sure on that really, it doesn't really matter since it is great everyear. There is a state Fair around Syracuse that I have never been to that is called the fair on there advertisements but you don't here much about it around here nor do you really hear about who is performing there.

I'm not sure for How long I've been going to the fair. Most years I've gone I go to see a performance like say Carrot Top,or The monster trucks yes one year Grave Digger was there that was pretty awesome. Last Year with (e:vincent), (e:tinypliny) and (e:theecarey) was a lot of fun. This year the 1st trip was with the sis and the niece. Then I went to go see the ultimate night of Disruction, well here are some pictures from the The Fair:

What is nice about the fair is that you have all the animal stuff. But if that isn't your thing there are the games. Well if you think the only people that can win them are the people who work at them or the people they give the big prize to so that it looks like people win them (not sure if they still practice this but some places used to), then you have rides. If that isn't your thing they all different shows. Some stages have multiple acts on them. Then if you just want to eat there are all sorts of places. Then they have displays and things in buildings. They also have all kinds of things you can buy and cooking shows. Not sure how and when it is but there is livestock stuff and where they grade animals. Yes some of the stuff you would have to look into but there is a great variety of things to do and see............

To Be Honest I'm sick of Uploading photos (all my photos aren't downloaded yet my battery died) So I'm guessing that means people are sick of looking at them....
1. Yes those are what I believe they call place settings, I love the starwars one and thought the Coke one was really cool
2. That train set up is pretty cool.......

Not sure what the next set of things to go up is thinking maybe the falls and then come back to more fair stuff not sure really.

One thing that I forgot to mention about the fair is they are all over the country and everyone should go, but if you don't like things or have a negative idea of the fair then look up the CNE (Candian National Expostion) also known as the X but spelled EX. I haven't been in a long time (no papers anyways) but go check that out, it used to be pretty cool. Way be fore (e:strip) I saw a stunt show where cars drove on their sides it was pretty cool. I know I could have put this under photos but Fairs are a summer thing no mater where you go...... I just wish On day 1 I ate more and had something deep fried, can Vegatariens have fried foods? Just wondering since the fat is sometimes from meat......

weekend so Far Has been Great

So On Wendsday Night I went to the Bison's game and had a good time helps that they won and played well......

Thursday got to sleep in some. Went to the fair with my Sis and my niece. That was fun but a little intense at times. Later that night it was the ultimate night of destruction. Figure 8 racing bus and mini bus demolition and some monster truck freestyle. It is just to bad it was the same night as (e:ladycroft)'s dinner. The other down side is even though I had what I thought where decent tickets a lot of the action was hard to see. There where a couple fair things I missed so I think I'm leaving early sat to go and have fun again.

Today went and got my check from work and took care of some bills. Then treked out to the Falls for The Maid of the Mist and the HardRock Cafe (US side , don't have a passport or the legal equivalent of that). That was a good time. I got lucky and was early in line so picked a place up front, man some of that mist is intense, I tried to take pictures as I enjoyed it. The weird part was taking the 40 it has been some time since I've done that (used to take it 2 times a day for work), so that brought up some memories. All in all so far a great weekend. So to some up........

So far I have had a good weekend hope everyone has a great rest of their weekend........

Morvells

So On Tuesd. I went down to the final Bidwell Park way series and it was insane.

1. Take down the stupid rope thing all it does is cause more problems and takes away some of the lawn.

2. Kids having there version of a mosh pit was crazy

3. Next time have to get there early if I want to be in the middle.

4. I get blankets and chairs but there where multiple parties with multiple tables.

I did go to Zillycakes before hand:

464 and Blink Gallery

So I'm really liking summer so far. I didn't think that their would be outside multi media stuff at 464, I would have liked to stay for it, but had some what of a headache and figured it was time to go. I think the Headache was caused by those two color 3D glasses. What is supposed to happen is your brain is supposed to take the two images of your eyes and over lay them, yes it makes a blind spot. But with me I see the blue on one side and the red on the other. But this makes me think back to when I took some eye test years ago and you look through this thing with light on each side and back then my mind had trouble yes I often saw the stuff on the right as on the right and the stuff on the left as on the left and they didn't integrate . Maybe this has something to do with why I like the old style 3D movies better and why often in these new ones nothing comes at me, I can feel the movie but sometimes have a headache. That being said there was some great art and it was a great time. I also wonder if this has something to do with that I seem to get that so many times in life People want to take simple things and make the complex actions, and often times Things that are complex and have many layers people make simple in their views....

In any event here are some pictures:

Garden and stuf

So Just wanted to throw this out, garden walk just started and I will be there in some form should be interesting today and sunday. I love that all these people descend into my hood, maybe I'll see some of you out there

Last night 464 and the 3D stuff was fun. I think the 3D gave me the headache. Turns out that with the two color glasses I looked up a light and saw a rainbow well ok color specturm felt like being dramatic. but I see blue out of the right eye (wasn't it green though) and red out of the left. Ones brain is supposed to combine them and yes the 3D effects looked different kinda from each eye. Maybe this explains the 3D movie thing....... Oh yeah it was great to see you (e:heidi) (I think I might have talked also, HA).

Tonight planning on go to Diablo, that should be a good time. I admit I only listened to like one song from one of the bands. Hoping my pictrues come out good. Wish I could drink at the bar and take pictures but then you get the mirrors on the stage and I wish I would good enough to take pictures that way but no way am I......

ItalinFESt movies

So I sarted out Saturday by going to see Inception. Visualy it was pretty good. Good story, good action, good acting. All in all it was a pretty good movie. With out giving anything away when the movie ends I was surprised that I understood it all. But then I started to think about what they showed at the end and started to wonder if the end really meant something else, but maybe I just over thought it............

After the movie what I should have done is gone and got a ticket at tops for Apoclitca . I would have loved to have seen them. But with the festival and having to change (should have just worn jeans). Plus at Towne Ballroom they allow cameras but sometimes the band doesn't so you often don't know untill you are in line if they are permited. This makes me wish for 2 things
1. I lived downtown, this would make going to shows or even Club Diablo so much better, but in this case get in line if no cameras take it home and come right back, no big deal
2. had a phone with camera, who knows maybe I would call someone sometime, This would also mean that when at the Festival yesterday I could have mobile posted what I was eating or something

I wound up watching some stuff I recorded and got caught up on some shows. Then I watched 2012 , that was pretty good love all the destruction, again great in a movie, not so good in real life, plus the effects where pretty good. Then before bed watched Porno for about 30 seconds, ha not really. I'm bumbed I didn't make the concert but maybe that gives me a few more $ for next weekend. If I'm remembering this right Friday (e:heidi) has stuff at the 464 gallery on friday, then On satruday I have to go to Club Diablo: not sure what it will be but I think it is going to be rockablillie bands and side shows or was it slide shows, in any event it sounds interesting...........

Here are some pictures from the festival

Pictures didn't show up lets try this again argh

Well for what ever reason the picture file names aren't showing up in the journal so that means like last time no pictures, guess I'll try a different browser later instead of using MSN we shall see

Well Now I'm using Safari after a computer shut down lets see what happens picture wise.
Well there are no pictures of the pictures where the file names show up and the files aren't added to this journal so still isn't working........

Weekend?

So one thing about having a could is you never know how good or bad it really is. Sometimes the nose runs and sometimes it doesn't, sometimes you have the headache and sometimes you don't. I'm hoping I feel fine for Sat. and Sunday that is right it is Taste of Buffalo time. Who knows I may even check out the Entertainment. Some things I think you can do sick, but the Taste I think the crowds drive you insane. PLus if the sickness effects how things taste do you really want to spend money on food. Well still good people watching and picture taking there is allways interesting stuff going on and give aways and stuff........

I may go out Sat. night if I feel up to it. The Stripteasers are performing at Roxy's. The Only thing is well ok two things. I know this sounds weird to some. I feel like I might not be welcome or not wanted there. I will admit I have never been there, but understand that it is a gay bar. Now maybe that term is wrong. I don't know it is just a feeling I get. The other thing is Main. I'm not saying Main is bad but there are some sketchy people around there and I don't know as I want to deal with that or take that chance.

Sunday night this band I like As Summer Dies is playing at club Paradise. As much as I would love to go, I don't know where that is or how I would even get there or get home so I think that is out. However I have been watching TNA recently and they are having a PPV so I think I'll go with that, just gotta find time to get a video tape so I can record it.

I doubt I will go out friday need to keep my strength up. Plus it will be the last day of a long 4 day work week. Hope everyone has a great weekend and who knows maybe I'll see you peeps out and about and maybe I'll even snap a picture of you or something.........

Allentown Art Festival

I have to admit that Part of me is glad to be posting something that has no pictures for once. So the Art Festival is this weekend. In the gusto there are two articles about it I think or maybe one was from yesterday. I will admit that I have lost some of my love for it, with the crap they Pulled with Music Is Art. But I still enjoy the festival....

How I go about things is I try and get their early and walk the entire festival and see what I can. I never buy anything until I have seen everything (this isn't true because sometimes people aren't set up till later and I know there have been people who have only been there for one day). One thing that bothers me is that some people don't have prices clearly marked. Sometimes it is a tough choice on what you want to get. You have things that are framed and unframed. Then you have different sizes and shapes. You kinda have to decide price for the size and frame and factor all that in. Sometimes you see something and know you have to have it, and it is easy. But some people alone have multiple things you like. I have been known to buy things on both days.

I wish I could Just post pictures of everything I bought there, but I have a lot. I have these cool oddities (also at elmwood festival of the arts), bought things for my family their like photos (local guys). Pen and ink dragon pictures, 3D underwater art, Hidden Villages, the point is a lot. I would like to see some more dark art there. Like maybe models dressed as fairies with waterfalls behind them or something.

This year however is going to be different for me for one reason. Last year I just Missed some how the Press Conference for MIA. This year I will be there. If you know where Robie's Studio on Franklin is, it will be at 3pm. I am to be there before then, from what I understand one of my pictures will be on display there on Sunday. I'm not sure If I won anything or not but just having my picture On display. It may be on display all day sunday, I'll slide by early and then come back later, well depending on the weather. I admit I would love to have won something it would be great. If I understand it correctly that the pictures displayed are from the winner in each category of the MIA/delaware Camera photo contest from last year. I was just happy to go see the Press Conference and now I get to go see a picture of mine (not sure what one they liked the best, of Those Idiots). Well what ever happens I'm looking forward to it [hoping no rain]. What I also think this means is anything I buy I want to buy on saturday.

Well hope everyone has a great weekend . and enjoys the festival. Oh yeah I almost forgot that The Recording studio I think is where MIA used to be every year is also having Mark Freeland art inside on display all weekend long............
