MY WEEK IN PHOTOS: MARCH 19–25, 2018! (HAPA FAMILY DAY, BOARD GAMES, COMICS)

A rainy week in Los Angeles. Starting the Terrace House obsession, visiting Meltdown Comics, a board game reunion, and a weekend spending time with both sides of the family.

Enjoy!

Kiki had been telling me to watch Terrace House for a few months and Gabby insisted we start immediately so we went for it. I am loving it…do you watch?

Tuesday evening, worked pretty late and by the time I got home Zach had attempted my gyoza soup recipe.

Untitled
Success!

Woke up on Wednesday and it was raining! Really not sure who put this ash tray on the balcony, also not sure the last time it was used but I should empty it I guess…

So happy it is raining! I get to wear my raincoat…

Got off the shuttle and there was a little bucket of umbrellas to use to walk across the plaza.

Right by where we parked was a restaurant selling fried chicken sandwiches for lunch and that sounded pretty good.

Maybe it was more of a dinner place, was pretty empty.

Went to see Zach in his friend’s production of A Midsummer Night’s Dream. A Shakespearean production set in post-apocalypic Athens with a heavy DIY vibe. Very charming, funny, and I actually understood what was going on. Maybe because my 5th grade class did a unit on Shakespeare and read A Midsummer Night’s Dream. I read Helena.

  1. The uncanny valley is super interesting! I listened to a podcast about it earlier this year and I just felt like it made a lot of sense. Also, I feel you on the adult acne… like… can it just stop? The Office Depot/Bevmo combo building is pretty funny looking – it all just looks like office space. That production looked pretty cool!

    1. The uncanny valley episode of Imaginary Worlds talks about video games and how they are really close to closing the uncanny gap. It talks about The Last of Us (a game that Zach just finished playing, and is coming out with a part 2) and also film CGI for like…dead actors who need to be in films or CGI younger versions of actors. So interesting! The office depot/bevmo/sprouts combo is a super depressing building ahah but has good stuff there!

      1. Yes! They’ve been trying to close the gap with some of the Star Wars films. I think they did a really good job there. I will check out that podcast episode. What is the podcast generally about? I haven’t seen The Last of Us, but I remember the podcast I listened to way back talked about how sometimes you just feel “bothered” by a visual and that it’s often because the visuals are just stuck in the uncanny valley! I felt like I had finally figured out why I couldn’t get myself to watch The Polar Express! lol.

      2. Imaginary Worlds is about how we create fictional worlds and why we suspend our disbelief (stolen from the show tagline ha). But it’s a podcast about fantasy, sci-fi, fiction etc. and touches on all kinds of things from moral alignment to special effects to fanfic and more. 🙂

  2. I’ve been hearing so many good things about Terrace House, should probably check it out!
    Love all the stuff you got from Meltdown, too bad it’s closing 😦
    Ooooooh is that your cousin Olivia?

  3. Yess Terrace House. The newest season started so strong I’m so excited. I’m also currently go through the fan translated episodes from the pre-Netflix seasons as they come out. It’s so good I’m glad ur on the train

    1. I’m definitely on the Terrace House journey! Still in the Aloha State series, but I’ll go back and start at the Boys and Girls in the City and then move back to the new season….*ahhh* really loving it. Somehow the sad parts are MORE SAD because everybody feels more real than American high drama reality shows.

  4. I absolutely loveee Terrace House! I can’t wait for part 2 of opening new doors to come out. And I highly recommend Boys and Girls in the City, it’s by far the best season yet. How are you finding it so far!
