I didn’t take many pictures of cosplayers at Arisia, but here are the better ones:
You can find more pictures of cosplayers at my cosplayer album:
I went to the Boston Rock Against the TPP Concert last Friday at Spontaneous Celebrations. It was organized by Fight for the Future and a host of groups including the Massachusetts Pirate Party. Two more are coming up.
I showed up late, so I didn’t get pictures of every band, but I did record some of the performances. Here are some of them:
Foundation Movement (Sadly they are all out of focus)
Taina Asili y La Band Rebelde
Eroc of Foundation Movement
The Finale (Get Up, Stand Up)
On September 30th, I attended the Tanya Donelly concert at ONCE Somerville. Starting were Hilken Mancini and Chris Toppin formerly of Fuzzy. I want to thank ONCE owner, JJ Gonson, for being completely and totally cool about people bringing in a D-SLR camera with a big lens. She is one of a kind and you should check out the concerts and food at ONCE.
Tanya Donelly played with various friends whose names I don’t remember. I took many pictures (below) and recorded two videos. All images and videos are CC BY-SA 3.0, so do whatever you want to do with them, but I appreciate being attributed.
Send Me Your Next Nightmare
and another one from the Swan Song series, that I couldn’t find on the album set for the life of me. If you know it, please share.
We went to the Peabody Essex Museum recently to see the Rodin exhibit and found this single room Intersections exhibit:
Their website describes it as:
Intersections: Anila Quayyum Agha is an immersive single room installation that bathes the visitor in a geometric array of light and shadow. Inspired by traditional Islamic architectural motifs, Pakistani-American artist Anila Quayyum Agha’s laser-cut steel lantern conjures the design of the Alhambra Palace in Granada, Spain, a historic site of cross-cultural intersection where a thousand years ago Islamic and Western cultures thrived in coexistence. Agha, an internationally renowned, award-winning artist, creates mixed media works that engage topics ranging from global politics and cultural multiplicity, to mass media and gender roles.
Here is a slide show of all of the pictures I took:
