Kato & Infernal – Speakers On

Pretty much listen for the bag pipe solo…

Vader would have been there…

Vader would have been there...

Seeing as my father fashioned himself a mix of Hon Solo and Darth Vader, this seemed fitting. The Darth Vader part of it comes in the form that he could impersonate a voice close to James Earl Jones. Also, having a son and a daughter who lovingly watched the Star Wars trilogy over, and over, and over….

Mytho Logique (ESMA, 2010)

Directed by J. Ambron, A. Aramini, A. Belbari, G. Poitel and Y. Vincent.
ESMA students short film, originally made in stereo 3D.

This short film is adorable. I am on a French Kick as of late.  For some reason, French is starting to sound less like gargling and more like a romance language.  Onto the video, I like how it is featuring classical mythology. The situation that our hero finds himself in touches on very relatable topics for the audience.  I find this to be a nice nuance to the classical myths.  One over-arching theme for classical mythology, is that gods make mistakes just like us mortals.  Maybe a message to be gleaned from this is that myths keep beliefs alive.

Please enjoy!

Clark Kent Phenomenon

Although I do care for my appearance take good care of myself, except for the occasional sweet treat and the addiction to coffee, I do not obsess over looking nice.  As part of being a hostess, I do wear nice clothes and some make up.  We are talking lipstick, eye shadow, mascara, and blush.  Additionally, I do not wear my glasses.  This is to be the pretty front of the resturant. Although, I say I must rely most on my stunning charm than looks.  Big warm smile rather than mysterious beauty.

The other half of my job, especially on the weekends, is to help in the kitchen.  As you may guess, this is a totally different atmosphere.  I dress in my “grungy clothes” as to not get my nice ones dirty.  I come home smelling of stale olive oil.  That is a fragrance I doubt will catch on in Macy’s.  I pull my hair back into a pony tail, have a headband, wear an apron, have no make up on, and wear my glasses.

Many-a-time we train new servers on my hostessing nights.  Why is still a mystery to me.  Thus the typical story ensues. I start the conversation, “Hi, I’m Kim, your hostess this evening, let me know if I can help with anything, I kinda know were everything is in here”  The next night, they come over to me in the kitchen and introduce themselves, “Hi, ‘m so and so” and hold our their hand. Catching their hand, I respond “Oh! Hi, I’m Kim, your hostess last night” I find it enormously funny when their eyes widen in almost disbelief that I could be one in the same.

Now I understand the use of glasses for Clark Kent vs Superman.  Perhaps this is the precursor to a dual life consisting of school and fighting crime.  Granted in my town of quiet Eugene, Or, I doubt I would bust anything bigger than marijuana users.
