Natsume Ono at Kinokuniya May 10th!

While I'm not as big a manga and anime fan as I used to be, but I still admire the various storylines and the artwork that artists create.

One of my recent favorites is Ristorante Paradiso. It's a about a young woman, Nicoletta, who works at Casetta dell'Orso - a unique restaurant in Rome where the servers are all male and wear glasses.

A slice of life story that explores the many faces of each character and their relationships with each other (Note: Hate to disappoint but it's not yaoi. On the other hand if it were I would not be reading it).

Thanks to Kinokuniya, Samurai Beat Radio and Viz, on  Natsume Ono, the creator, will be giving talk about her works on Tuesday May 10th at 7PM.

There will also be a raffle where one lucky winner will receive an original artwork signed by the artist; two runner-ups will each receive a print by the artist. She's also known for House of Five Leaves. 

Hope to see you there!

2012 Holiday Window Displays in NYC

Holidays are often the best times for tourists with chance to see New York City during their vacation.  For New Yorkers its also a time to brood and avoid all the any plans that involve remotely going near main points of traffic.

However there is one that thing that both tend to enjoy is the holiday window displays.  People line up and wait just to see what will light up and what new themes stores have come up with.

Like the ice rinks that open, the special markets that open during this time of year, stores get into the season by decorating their windows with images that inspire anyone to take their camera out. I personally recommend starting midtown and walking up. Depending on the time of day you can visit them all in one day - be prepared to brave crowds and have your walking shoes on.

See Bloody, Bloody Andrew Jackson for $50

Ever imagined what any of our founding fathers would be if they were a twenty-something, emo rock star? From the mind of Michael Friedman, Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson is a musical rendition about just that. Dealing with populism, the Indian Removal act, and of course making time for his wife Rachel, Andrew Jackson has complicated life story that can only be illustrated through song and dance.

The producers of the show would like to show their political support with their "Jackson for a Grant" initiative which offers $50 tickets to the show through November 24th.

Just use the code BBJVOTE when you purchase your tickets on or purchase tickets at the Bernard B. Jacobs Theater box office (242 West 45th Street, Manhattan); or by call (212) 947-8844.
