Just thought I would share something here on alivenotdead.com, since it is related to my work as an "artist" (of sorts).
This past 6 months or so I've been getting some side gigs doing voiceover work for a few different corporate videos. One was for a construction company that had a display video at the Shanghai Expo, and more recently I did a video for the largest Kiwi fruit producer in the world (did you know Shaanxi Province is the world's largest Kiwi fruit production market?).
About a month ago I...Read more
A friend of ours, Grace, started a project called "Journey to China" where she brings non-Chinese to experience various Chinese cultural arts/events. For their first event they brought us to a Shaanxi-style Chinese opera school where we were introduced to various aspects of Shaanxi Opera. This photo is of a girl from the Ukraine who was used as a demonstration of Chinese opera makeup style and technique. She was quite the trooper.September 17, 2010

Today's Phlog subject is Adam V. Adam is a man of varied talents. Originally from Scotland, he came to China after high school and took a year of Chinese language at Xi'an Northwest University (西安西北大学) and then enrolled as a student at Shaanxi Normal University (陕西师范大学) studying Chinese Literature. 4 years later he graduated and was ridiculously fluent in Chinese. Now he works for a company that works on developing the capacities of young people through the arts. He is an artist himself and his guitar skills are quite impress...Read more
Our last stop during the summer trip to the U.S. was to visit Ruhi's mom in Hawaii. She lives on a small island called Moloka'i, located between Uahu and Maui. Honest, I took so many pictures that I wish I could post here, but I'm trying to keep my phlogs to just one picture ... or maybe 2. Okay .. 3. But thats the limit for today.Twist my arm whydoncha?

Back again with another Phlog (photo blog). This picture was taken during last summer's trip to the U.S. (Think of this as my way of sharing what I've been up to for the past 9 months.)August 15, 2010 | Driggs, Idaho, USA |
Replies:@Seeker09 - Good to see you too@Flagday - Yes, it was delicious. I'll try to keep in touch!@bvngo - Erm ... no. But good try!
Its been a very very long time since I last blogged on AnD. But to be honest, its been a long time since I've blogged anywhere. Even on my own websites, narom.net or wushuzilla.com, I blog with an increasing lack of frequency. Once a month? Pssh .... I've apparently lost my blogging mojo. Thats okay though, because other things have been a priority these days. A lack of blogging for me usually means an abundance of living. ...Read more
Got to do some work for Khalil in Beijing this past week and took photos from his Timeless concert on the 23rd of July. It was great to be able to snap photos of the show and they hooked me up with some great seats too.
Here is a bonus photos, not included on my alivenotdead photo album:
Our friend Snow invited Ruhi and I, along with Fod and Lei, to her family’s home for some New Year’s dumplings. Seeing as how it took place on our “free day”, we jumped at the chance and had a great time eating dumplings, watching some “Babies” and talking with friends.
I realize that to the random observer (i.e. “you”) it might seem like I’ve fallen off the wagon with my wushu blogging and training. I haven’t been training as much these days and haven’t been writing much about wushu either.
The truth is, there is a reason for this. Maybe a couple reasons.
The first is that I am trying to finish my tea before re-filling my cup. Meaning, that I have a lot of things on my plate and I need to take care of them before I start focusing on my wushu again. There ar...Read more
