Martian Child 2007. When I 1st watched it, I thught I have seen this before=kid in a box... but it was totally different movie. I was pretty sure Cusak and box boy combo was there before.... Anyway, it was good movie and he had a nice house. $10.

LACMA, on contrary to MOCA, this was much nicer. Damien Hurst and Richard Serra had great pcs too. The butterlfly lab by Hurst is amazing. $any after 5PM or so on Friday. Decent Bar too. Get high and observe that would be the ideal.

Moca in LA. There are two in similar location but both are so so. Parking is too expensive too. Would not visit unless good exhibit is coming.

Moss LA. Expected something like one in NYC but much smaller and too posh. Never again. The Paul Smith which is a few blocks near by had more design stuff than this moss-pit.

War 2007 with Jet Lee and one of the pyscho actor. So so but the last surprise is kind awkward...
Not sure if it was bad plot or director or .... $6.

Crab House

39 Pier # C
San Francisco, CA 94133
(415) 434-2722

2nd time. Their Killer crab is good as before but the crab was either in a fridge too long or bad and old... The meat was hard to get it off the shell and tasted dry. Later I learned that they also have legs only platter. I shall order that one the next. Also ordered shrimp and clam. Did not expect clam to be mussel, and those mussel did not have deep taste as one in europe (I mean Belgo in the London). Would go again for prompt service and killer flavor. $95 for 4.

SF Union Street Easter Festival.
Feels like any other festival in the CA with some dodgy shops but kids seemed to enjoyed it. At least it was a beautiful day.

Zoolander 2001. Many big timer playing a small role in it. Kind a funny, but his looks does #$%$ is a tad too much. Love that mobile phone. $9.

Tamarine Restaurant

546 University Ave
Palo Alto, CA 94301
(650) 325-8500

Vietnamese modern restaurant. Half-Thai-ish but was good. Price a bit too much. $60 for 2 for lunch. Scallop Curry was good.

Half Moon Bay Brewing Company

390 Capistrano
Princeton-by-the- Sea, CA 94019
(650) 728-2739

Good drink, music and scenery. What could you ask for more.

Calamari and Patron just does it. Fish Stew, Oyster and ribs are OK but skip Penne.

3:10 to yuma 2007. So so western done by western amature. I dig the trial spirit. Crowe did OK and others were alright but the best one I liked was Charlie who was played by Ben Foster. Mean SOB.

Plot wise I felt young and weak... In the last he does that and get on train?!"#. I could have done better. $8.

Barefoot Zinfandel Wine at safeway $6. It was good. As good as some brand over $20. screw others, I am going for this one for while as I did with raven brand.

great expectation 1998, Ethan looks so young and G.P. is sublime but I did not know the original was done by Charles Dickens. In that case, the movie should be much thicker and deeper. I loved Francesco Clemente work which was Ethan's work in the movie. $12.

francis coppola chardonnay 2006 Golden Label. Not bad. I can not remember what I paid for but must have been around $12. Fruity and stingy but very neutral and good with fish.

Tideland 2005. I saw it since it was done by Terry Gilliam whom I thought I dig but no more. The movie sucked. It is good that well known famous director take risk on this kind a thing but it showed his true nature of what he wanted to do with his skill set. To me it really stinks. Good bye Terry, your old compromised film were much better. Have a fun making this kind movie with your wealth but I won't be seeing it your stuff ever again. RIP.

Renwood 2005 Zinfandel Lodi $13 at Bev Mo. Fruity and nice but for $13, I think I go for Ravenwood.

Life is Beautiful 1997. Guido is just so funny and act like Luca once I knew. Kind a dangerous to see the bicycle riding with kids but we all done that. War is damn aweful and low IQ that is all I can say.

Taft Street Russian River Zinfandel 2006 $13 at Bev Mo. Taste medium. I am OK with Ravenswood with this price.
