blood and bones, a very sad, violence film. This is a story of a Korean-Japanese family during the war era. warning: this film is for 18+ plus, and you need some guts to watch it. It is a great film. 99 cents from Hastings. review and comments will come later... BTW I have been watching 10+ films over the vacation... 10 more to go... : )
a great architect from Japan - Tadao Ando. My new hero, the spirit of pursuing his dream is just as admirable as his fabulous art. And in the mean time, I just got informed from a friend in Japan, she just passed the first level architect licensing. AWESOME! Way to go! Emi, congratulations!
11/30/09 Woke up at 3:40AM this morning. It seems the nerves still hanging on to the unresolved postdoc fellowship that I am applying. They should announce the grant receivers today, but I haven’t heard anything from the official website earlier. It’s a tortures. I wasn’t that nervous actually, sort of, because of the terrifying interview and comments I had received from the interview committee earlier this month. It is the worst experience of interview I have ever got, so far. Anyway, I was up already, it seems the minor concern of the expected negative result still affecting me, at least to my sleep. I decided to give it a check of the internet again. I turned on the computer in the living room. It loaded up the major igoogle webpage with gmail column in it. It showed a new email with “Congratulations” from my Mom..?? “what is going on here?” I asked myself with a lot of question marks… follow the title, then the letter announced : Congratulations! Mark, You have received the grant successfully! We are so glad for you… A greeting letter from my mom! For real?! My mom never joking with me through the emails and I know they are more nervous than I do at this moment. So … this is for real?! I won’t doubt anything if this is the letter from the midday, but now it is 3:40AM. Am I in a dream again?! I called home, and there is my dad telling me this exciting news! Wow… unbelievable… Although I really want to believe them at this moment, I really want to make sure this is not a mistaken, kind of a bit worry, they are not very good at extracting information from the internet, just like me… They might find something illusion… ha… am I wrong and underestimate my parents… forget the extra worries , son! They have called and got the direct positive answer from the grant officer! It’s for real! Unbelievable! I feel I have used up all the good lucks of my life in this month. Harvard! I am coming!
Just went to the city library to get some books and films. I have heard those two DVDs for quite sometimes, but never had a chance to watch it. It's a very deep sorrow after watching it. Even you are a skeptic, being part of the global, you should watch it. Just check them out from the near library. Great films!
I am a biologist grew up with a fishing rod in my hands. I have been fortunate enough to embrace my love of art and science in my career. Most of my free time were well spent in the nature, either studying bird behavior or chasing variety of fish with fly rods. My favorite art medium is watercolors, I love the natural and spontaneous feel created by watercolor pigments. I am currently a post-doctoral research fellow at Harvard University. Welcome to my website. Mark
