D.D.D. Caught D.D.D, a live dance performance art show by Takao Kawaguchi and Fuyuki Yamakawa. I must admit the whole show kept me super on-the-ball as the performance uses high level sounds and strobbing lights. In contrast to the quietness and darkness when nothing is going on, it creates a tension of anticipation. The dance is a little painful to watch as we see the dancer contort his body into 'knots', and the vocal from the other performer is loud and to me, beyond description (not as in wonderful, but really weird). The vocal is a kind of sound made when you execute double throat singing (i.e. khoomei). The show explores the human body and pushes the limit of its exploration. There are segments of lesson, like bio class, explaining how the SA nodes of the heart gives out electric signal and how the performer uses it to control the light bulbs in front of him. We see the insides of the vocal performer, literally, and that complements the dance performance following that featuring tubings which eventually pours oils onto the dancer, which just prior to that had stripped bare to show us the vulnerabilities of the human muscles in one segment. Basically nothing like I've ever seen.

A new film by oddball director Wes Anderson who gave us The Royal Tenenbaums. About 3 brothers who went on a trip to India to search for spiritual enlightenment? Something like that. The Darjeeling Limited is supposedly the train where the main part of their adventure takes place. Watch the trailer at Apple Trailers.
Yep. This franchise will never end.
Caught The Simpsons Movie. It was hilarious and just as spoofy as I thought it would be. There were Titanic moments, political stabs and a lot of very Simpson-esque comedy. Although not a cinematic feat, it does make viewers laugh from time to time and there are lessons to be learnt from the film. Pollution, Karma, Kinship. It's so wholesome, less the nude scene by Bart Simpson.
Bought the 2-Disc DVD edition of 300. The effects are super cool and I cannot imagine that they did not spend much to create it. With subtitles, every single word is clear and damn Spartans like to use sarcasm in their languange. Anyway, the special features includes the making-of, webisodes, diagnosis of fact and fiction and stuff. Very interesting la to me. Really, this film is a keeper. Transformers, when it comes out, is a keeper on HD-DVD. 300 still can keep on standard DVD.
