So Today... [Sep. 16th, 2012|03:28 am]
[Current Mood |awakeawake]

I went to a yearly ‘20’s festival and unlike last year, I was able to get tickets to the Silent Films. Watched a Laurel & Hardy short, and Andy Gump short, and one whose name I can’t remember, haha. It’s a 2 day thing so I am probably going there tomorrow and catching a Buster Keaton short that I didn’t get to see.

And there was a fashion show. And other stuff which I will have to catch tomorrow.
And there’s a mausoleum where the family of the guy who used to own the land is buried. Haha! And they had a guided tour, and I went inside and it creeped me out because there are like 20 bodies resting there. And I asked the tour guide about Brown, that is, the guy who is and whose family is buried there if he was Irish, lol, only because the burial site seemed Catholic, and the tour guide told me no, he was English, but married a Mexican/Spanish woman and he converted to Catholicism hence the burial. Makes sense. Most of the local land here, think late 1800’s early 1900’s was owned by Spanish or English people.

Weird. I am so not a religious person, haha, but I am half Latino and culturally Catholic, and went I walked out of the Mausoleum, I did the father, the son, and holy ghost finger crossing across my face . I didn’t do it towards a God, but rather, just out of respect for the people resting there.

So, um, yeah, that was my day, how was your day?

Man that sounds like you had an awesome day, Oscar. You should totally go for the second day! How can you resist Buster?

I did go today as well, lol, but they changed the movie schedule so no Keaton today. :( Dunno what short it was going to be. 2 years ago when I went they showed Keaton’s “Cops,” which I saw and was a lot of fun.

But either way, I had fun, the silent film presentations try to emulate the ‘20’s experience and there’s a guy who plays the piano alongside the films. Despite being shy, haha, I introduced myself to him, and told him how I appreciated his work. We talked about musical improvisation, our heritages, silent films in general, he seems like a really great guy.

I wish I was with you!

Haha! I wouldn’t mind you being there. I went to the Festival alone, I know the story of my life. But one of the events of the festival was a dance, which I didn’t participate in, I mean, it’s not like I have the chutzpah, haha, to just walk to a woman and ask for a dance, I mean this wasn’t a club or something, lol! But had you been there, you being my friend, I would had asked you for a dance.

But alas, not only did I know him, lol, but if I wanted to dance, I had to dance by myself, thanks Billy Idol.
