626 Night Market - 626 夜市 - October 2012 Edition

The 626 Night Market is back this weekend on October 20-21, 2012. Apparently, ppl in LA really like night markets. They've double the length of the event to the whole weekend and set up shop at a venue made for crowds. NICE.

I am going to try my darnest to make it out this time. Even if rumors of a cover charge exist, I may shell it out for this family of four. If its super awesome, I'll hope for another 626 night market.

They've turned off embed for some reason, head over to YouTube for some 626 videos.

Monsters Calling Home - Honda Surprise

Monster Calling Home had a most unusual introduction to the world a month ago. This Korean-American folk band was invited to play for 600 Honda employees. The Honda marketing team got wind of their YouTube video. The video was shot in their Honda's to the tune of "Fight To Keep".

However, when only 6 employees showed up, they were visibly a little disappointed. BUT, Honda surprised them with the news that they were really there to perform across the street on the Jimmy Kimmel Show! Amazing story, amazing band, amazing outcome.

Jeremy Lin Having Fun In Houston

Jeremy Lin seems to be settling into his new city just fine. KevJumba and Jeremy Lin had a classic 2011 lock out video. They hook up again in Houston to deliver to the rest of the world some crazy hijinx.

Lots of YouTube videos to prove this below.

The Walking Dead - Season Three - Upcoming

The Walking Dead is one of my favorite US made television series. It is based on a comic book series of the same name. The series follows a band of survivors in the ATL trying to survive in the wake of an Zombie Apocalypse.

The series is going to premiere its third season this coming Sunday on the AMC channel. The first two seasons were a blast. I had seen bits and pieces of it, but I recently purchased the Blu-rays and binged watch it. AWESOME!

The show also features Steven Yeun as the former pizza delivery expert as a main cast member, Glenn. The dood is a gopher and gets in an out of places. I hope its not playing on the "sneaky Asian" stereotype.

Glenn's love interest on the show is the lovely Lauren Cohan as Maggie Greene. I was a bit surprised to see this go down. It is working against the "sexless" Asian male stereotype. NICE.

The Old

Tomorrow, I will be changing the layout slash theme slash skin of this blog. I leave this screenshot as a remembrance of what was from November 2008 to October 2012. Almost made it to four years.

The reason I didn't switch to something more up to date is because I couldn't find one that separated out my post. I don't blog more than once a day and in some cases spend days working on a post. Some post are a minute.

But I have found a few recently. I'll be switching between them and settling on one soon.

Good bye old look and feel, you served your purpose, but it's out with the old.
