a kumi day - words first
some sense later
a kumi day
Could have, should have gone to the Coney Island Mermaid Parade and after party but it was so rainy and I had sniffles since yesterday. Instead it was a quiet day in the 'hood. my lil' local multi-cultural hood in nyc.

Went to breakfast at an Irish bakery where there were gaggles of blonde and red headed tots telling their mums they wanted chips for breakfast.

After a sleepy day of napping while it rained outside and showing mo' how to give his web page language tags we went and checked out the South Asian music and dance festival at the restaurants a couple of blocks from my apartment. They were tearing it up sitar concert on one side of the block and an ethereal but energetic vocalist wailing on the other side. Only listened a bit cause we hadn't eaten anthing since breakfast and it was past 10pm. Ambled a couple blocks over and ate at our regular Korean place. Dol Sot Bi Bim Bap and Too Doo Jigae; hot pot beef and vegetable rice casserole and tofu and seafood spicy stew.

As I showered and thought about the day, it popped to mind. heh. Started the day Irish. Ended it Korean. A kumi day.

Current Mood: mellow mellow
Current Music: some Japanese Samurai Hip Hop. check tujigiri.net

it sounds like you had a nice day.Do i know you? The picture looks real familiar but i don't know why. I have only been to N.Y. once a very long time ago...do you come to l.A.? Oh well just thought I would say Hi...bye.

thnks for readin' and replyin'.

No, we haven't met, not to my knowledge. I popped into your live journal land via reading Lenora Claire's various comments and exhortions to culture via the web.

My adventures in L.A. are few and were about 18 years ago. Been in NYC since '92. Before that lived in New Orleans and before that in various Texas cities.

keep rockin'


ps: the picture you used in your comment is very striking. i.e. i like it a lot.

Thanks. The picture you are using now gives me the willies...I think thats what threw me off..when I saw your nice, normal face on your entry yesterday i was who is that i don't remember that picture. Do you like living in N.Y.? I love Lost Angeles...I lived in Chicago for 2 years about 10 years ago...did not care for the windy city...not at all. Too cold...then too hot and humid....its a beautiful Sunday morning here i hope you have good weather too.

yes, it seems a confusingly lovely day out today. but is supposed to rain some more. rain is good.

I like NYC because I don't like cars, don't mind walking, like being around so many different kinds of people, like the many types of activities going on around. If only I could get bigger living space, that is my only lament.

As for the picture of the mask. Don't you think it resembles me somewhat? It is a typical cheap child's halloween devil mask that melted a bit while it was in the closet.

You are in the right place then. There are not too many places you can live and not need a car. I hear N.Y. is one of those places. L.A. is very much not a place like that.The traffic is very bad at times...it is probably the worst part of living here. Living in N.Y. is expensive, at least thats what i have heard from everyone i have ever known to live there. Apartments are at a premium and space is limited....I don't like that I need space to get away from all the people sometimes...oh well. I don't think you resemble that mask at all but I do think you resemble somebody and when it comes to me I will let you know who.

Sounds like you had a fantastic day, Wray. Any day that can be considered a Kumi day sounds good to me.

When I was a child, far before knowing what the instrument was named, I loved the sound of the sitar. Even now with my MTV Music Generator 1 & 2 plus FruityLoops Beat Generator, I can't resist using it. I'd love to hear it played live one day. I'm going to have to check out that link too. I love how the true Hip-Hop culture (not the thuggism) is spreading to other cultures and is being adapted.

Thanks for adding me to your friends list and I'll try to pop in as much as possible. Take care and have a good day, Wray ^_^

well, don't expect much from the link. my son, whom I call mo', has already lost interest in his site and despite my regular requests to him to put up some content now says he is going to redesign the site instead.

he seems to be more of a picture person than a writer/communicator.

Actually most of Tesla's intense papers were stolen and are only now manifesting in Gov. projects like HAARP and other low frequency, microwave and sonar technology. There uis a book called ABGELS DON'T PLAY THIS HARRP that tells some of the many unbelievable heights that his Tesla Tech has reached. (basicalyy it began as a device that had to do with over-the-horizon-radar that turned into a pandora's box of incredible strength which can cause storms, shut down an entire city's electrical grid on the other side of the world, cause mass hallucinations, and even some say poked a hole in our atmosphere in a test which was done in the sixties. I love hidden technology, spurious or otherwise. Tesla was a genius. happy Sunday-
