Kickstarter: Brunswick, Maine brings us "Journey to the West: An Illustrated Children's Book"

-It's a classic. 


ABOUT THIS PROJECT

Hello everyone! Allow me to elaborate on the details of the portion of the Journey to the West I will be focusing on.

Book 1: The Monkey King

A mischievous, powerful monkey bursts out of a giant rock and begins to roam the nearby mountains. He soon stumbles upon a tribe of monkeys, who immediately crown him king. Life as king proves to be dull and monotonous for the Monkey King, and he leaves his beloved monkey clan to seek extreme strength, power and eternal life.

He goes on to master the art of shape shifting, find his secret weapon--an iron rod that shrinks and grows at his command, and eat an entire tree of magical peaches that grant eternal life.

However, throughout the Monkey King's quest for power, he causes trouble. A lotof trouble. First the Monkey King trashes the Dragon Palace in the depths of the ocean, and when that wasn't enough the Monkey King flies to the Jade Palace in the heavens to cause further havoc.

Book 1 ends with the Monkey King finally being put in his place. Buddha punishes him by trapping him underneath an enchanted mountain.

And...Book 2 will begin with the Monk freeing the Monkey King from his prison and embarking on their journey to retrieve the Buddhist scriptures!

Thank you so much for looking at my Kickstarter page. I truly hope that you find my story compelling, and are also interested in sharing this fantastic story!

Kickstarter: "There's Chinese Tunnels Under Boise!" The Legend of Zelda, metal-heads and Heartthrobs

-WTF!?!! 

Hello friends!
We're in the final stretch of completing our newest beast: our original comedy,There's Chinese Tunnels Under Boise! (grammatical error intended).
Some of you may have seen the first iteration of this show 12 years ago at Neurolux: then it was called There's Chinese Tunnels Under Boise! And Other Local Legends and was written and performed the incomparably funny Tom Willmorth, Ira Amyx, Dale Slack and our own Nick Garcia. For those who did see the original, be forewarned: this new version is an entirely re-imagined experience -- with time travel, butt rockers and a super sweet heavy metal soundtrack. BUT there are a few key elements from the original show that remain integral here, and we give full credit to Tom, Ira and Dale for those gems.
For this new baby, we jump headfirst into rehearsals on July 1st and have one month to get our shit together, a.k.a., make the magic come alive!
Boise Weekly graced us with a Cover Auction grant that will cover half our expenses, and we need to raise the other half to pay for: our cast, crew and designers; 60 yards of heavyweight velvet for drapes; equipment; printing; costumes; space rental; and the rest of our set.
Our play synopsis and production details are below. Read up and if this project resonates with you and you can give a little or a lot to see it to its fruition, we thank you and will strive to make this the coolest experience imaginable (we know, it's a tall order, but you gotta try, right?), and to keep creating original shows that rock your world (at least, we hope).
Visit our website, www.TheEmptyBoatTheatreCompany.org, for more info.
We love and thank you!
Nick and Hollis

Meet Dwayne and John, two 20-year-old metal-heads cooped up late at night in Dwayne's parent's basement in late-80s Boise. The video game The Legend of Zelda has just been released, and Dwayne's already collected five fragments of the Triforce of Wisdom. His unrequited high school heartthrob, Lina, is supposed to come by tonight, though she's put him off her entire trip home from cooler-than-Boise Seattle. Can Dwayne get John out of the house before she shows up? Or will John convince Dwayne to come out to Pojo's with him? Will Lina actually show up? Are there actually Chinese tunnels under Boise? And what the f#@&'s up with that record player?

Join us for a journey not unlike the game of Zelda, where our friends might just enter the underbelly of Boise, and collect a few fragments of wisdom for themselves.
There's Chinese Tunnels Under Boise!

RIP Andy Griffith: Watch "Aunt Bee's Restaurant" Where she opens the first Chinese Restaurant in Mayberry!

-Classic Americana!


Name: "Aunt Bee's Restaurant"
Synopsis: Aunt Bee takes a job at a Chinese restaurant, but her superstitions get in the way of her work.
Originally Aired: February 6, 1967

Starring Keye Luke as Charlie

Keye Luke was born in Canton, China. He grew up in Seattle, Washington, and entered the film business as a commercial artist and a designer of movie posters. He was hired as a technical advisor on several Asian-themed films, and made his film debut in The Painted Veil (1934). It seemed that he appeared in almost every film that called for Chinese characters, usually in small parts but occasionally, as in The Good Earth (1937), in a meatier, more substantial role. In addition, he played Dr. Kildare's rival at the hospital in the Dr. Kildare series at MGM, but it was as Charlie Chan's #1 son in that series that Luke achieved his greatest recognition. In the 1970s a new generation was made aware of his talents by virtue of his recurring role in the TV series "Kung Fu" (1972).
and Lloyd Kino as Jack  Born: May 8, 1919 in USA

Eight was enough for Michael Phelps in Beijing.

Zombie Chinese: Chinese Bus Driver Cannibal Attacks Woman...

-First USA now China... 2012 is coming! 

http://www.torchent.com/?p=269

The recent terrifying spate of 'cannibal attacks' seems to have spread to China, as a drunk bus driver was caught on camera gnawing at a woman's face in a horrific random attack.
The unfortunate woman will apparently require plastic surgery to repair the damage done by her crazed attacker.
According to local news reports, the driver, named Dong, had been drinking heavily during lunch with his friends before the outburst on Tuesday.
He then ran on to the road in the city of Wenzhou, in south-east China, and stood in front of the car being driven by a woman named Du, stopping her from moving.

Dong climbed on the car's hood and started beating the vehicle while the panicked woman screamed for help.
When she left the car and tried to escape, the bus driver leaped on top of her and wrestled her to the ground.

It was then that Dong started biting Du's face, leaving her covered in blood and weeping as passers-by tried to pull the attacker off his victim.
Witnesses said that the bus driver had gone 'crazy' and was successfully resisting attempts to subdue him.

When police arrived, they managed to take Dong into custody, bringing the appalling rampage to an end.
Du was taken to hospital, where doctors said she would need surgery to repair her nose and lips.
The incident comes in the wake of a number of similar attacks committed by drugged-up psychopaths in the U.S.
Perhaps the best-known of these came in May, when Rudy Eugene chewed a homeless man's face off before being shot dead by police.

Media Round UP: Hong Kong's New Leader and Anniversary of Handover - Mr. Hu, Handover and Hecklers

-Yes, Mr. Obama. Other world leaders get heckled too. 

Heckler Interrupts Hu in Hong Kong

Chinese President Hu Jintao was interrupted by a protestor during a ceremony in Hong Kong.

http://youtu.be/-znYC9Y5JmU


Mr Hu was heckled twice in two days during his carefully chaperoned visit. On Sunday, a protester in the audience loudly shouted: "End one-party rule!" as he gave an inauguration address for Leung Chun-ying, the island's new leader.

On Saturday, police had to use pepper spray to fight back protesters trying to present Mr Hu with a 100,000-name petition calling for an investigation into the suspicious death of a Tiananmen Square dissident.

One journalist was earlier dragged away for shouting a question about the Tiananmen Square protests.


Chinese President Hu Jintao arrives in Hong Kong to mark 15 years of its handover from Britain and inaugurate its new leader, at a time of record-breaking levels of discontent toward Beijinghttp://youtu.be/3RMtswqz0fI

Protests and heckles as China swears in Hong Kong’s new leader - The Globe and Mail:

The outpouring of discontent underscored rising tensions between the Communist mainland and the vibrant city of seven-million that was returned to China in 1997 after more than a century of British colonial rule. While much of the discontent revolves around growing economic inequality and stunted democratic development, Hong Kongers are also upset over what they see as arrogant Chinese behaviour – wealthy mainlanders taking over retail outlets during flashy Hong Kong shopping trips, for example, or even the choice of language during Sunday’s swearing-in ceremony, Beijing-accented Mandarin instead of the Cantonese dialect spoken locally.


New Hong Kong leader Leung Chun-ying caused controversy within minutes of being sworn in by Chinese president Hu Jintao on Sunday, choosing to deliver his inaugural speech in Mandarin, not the local dialect Cantonese that is spoken by the majority in the city.

For decades, China’s Communist Party has promoted Mandarin as the country’s official language and a way to unite the country’s wide-ranging local dialects. However, in the fiercely independent former British colony of Hong Kong, Cantonese still reigns supreme, and has long been a staple of cultural exports to the mainland, including Hong Kong TV dramas and, of course, Cantopop.

15 years after China takeover, Hong Kong uneasy - Investors.com:

For thousands of Hong Kongers, this weekend's 15th anniversary of China's takeover of the semiautonomous territory isn't a moment to celebrate but a chance to air grievances from corruption scandals to human rights to a widening gap between rich and poor.

Chinese President Hu Jintao arrived here on Friday to install Hong Kong's new but already unpopular leader, whose swearing-in on Sunday's anniversary is expected to draw large-scale protests. Hu, surrounded by tight security, is unlikely to see them.

China has kept its promise to retain the freewheeling capitalist ways of the former British colony, but residents have grown increasingly uneasy about being ruled by the country's authoritarian leaders. Only 1,200 elites among Hong Kong's 7 million residents had the right to vote for their chief executive.
