Share My Fruit (HD)

A lovely HD UPGRADE! The four hairy beasts that make up the band “A.P.E.” (Apes Playing Electronics) – Mungo, Gorgo, Konga, and Edgar – rock out with this song of love and longing. Yes, the A.P.E.s do try really hard, don’t they? But with such winning lyrics as “I Wanna Rub Myself on You” can […]

Flying Tigers

After 93 million years, the FLYING TIGERS record is finally done. Here’s where to get it. “Flying Tigers” was made by a group of musical ne’er-do-wells (Marco Jimenez, Tim Maloney, and Minshi Wang) working for years sending compositions back and forth through email, considering they lived at great distances from each other. The participants were […]

Myanmar Diary – Part 25 – Yangon to Taipei to Home

29 November 15 – Sunday – DAY TWENTY-THREE It will be one of those long hallucinatory days that never ends – due to the International Date Line. You may remember how this worked on the way over – it’s hours and hours of staying immobile, being somewhat infantilized. It is very disorienting – the clock […]

Myanmar Diary – Part 24 – Pyin Oo Lwin to Yangon

28 November 15 – Saturday – DAY TWENTY-TWO Nyin Zar Wai, that bright young sweetheart, gets up from her crash pad at the hotel at 4:45 AM just to see us off. She hugs us all, but especially Cecilia – no one is sure why. Is it because Cecilia is enormously charismatic and who doesn’t […]

Myanmar Diary – Part 23

27 November 15 – Friday – DAY TWENTY-ONE Minshi and I stumble along like zombies in total disbelief that Gavin is making us do this. Though some of the shots are attractive, they are total filler material and the sound of them is 90% motorcycle-bys and 10% tiny synced material I would have to Foley […]

Myanmar Diary – Part 22

26 November – Thursday – DAY TWENTY It’s officially Thanksgiving in the US. Here it’s the biggest Harvest Moon Buddha Extravaganza Holiday There Ever Was. People are going nuts everywhere in town. Half of Mandalay has packed up and driven here. And it’s also, finally, a late enough morning that I can feel the recuperative […]

Myanmar Diary – Part 21

25 November 15  – Wednesday – DAY NINETEEN Cecilia wakes up with some kind of eye infection. Not a pink eye, but it is weepy and problematic. We tumble out of our hotel room and somehow choke through the usual hotel breakfast for yet another day that begins at the sewing shop. This time we’re […]

Myamar Diary – Part 20

24 November 15 – Tuesday – DAY EIGHTEEN We’re back at Hone Hone’s for another day. The Balloon Festival is at night again, so we’ll shoot the last bits here and then head off later. Tonight we should shoot Tinmar Aung following the Ghost Gilbert through the festival. Now Gavin has finally succumbed to the […]

Myanmar Diary – Part 19

23rd November 15 – Monday – DAY SEVENTEEN We’re standing on the roof of the orphanage now, trying to get a shot of the school playground at recess. It’s the opening day of the Balloon Festival. After this one shot and a pickup of Gilbert – to cover the shot that had his big ugly […]
