How are you my good is it to get your this your very giddy to heat.
But I am very Giddy and so it's good yeah so I'm pretty I'm pretty happy
nothing and we had a couple of offers and now it after writer head of the look of to get to my dear person in english actor.
Are you joshua me give a particular be until i'm sure i can edit with a picture.
I would like to really know the guy you get.
Do you know him.
Think it home before the storm.
Cuz you know I'm not that I'm not I'm not there I can't I can't find my inner peace yet.

[1:56] Getting i'm trying my that is no maybe the person we're talking can i can also help me figure out a better way to get there because we're talk with the lady that will grow with directors i'd say.
How are you doing doing what i then what i'm glad you're which is what you're doing great bush.
Of course all over yourself.
I can only drink water ninety degree yeah um so it look let's just get elway the first question that probably you get ass a lot i know that i'm gonna ask because.
One hundred percent sure what it is but what actually is the silk road track i guess it's actually silk road asian cinema and culture is the full,
track title is the full title that's correct.

[2:52] If you imagine that pretty much the silk road went from the mediterranean to the far east china
and they're still so a lot of silk road traffic today so and we can consider part of North Africa
Eastern Europe and Japan is also a little bit into the Silk Road trade now so based on that trade route is what we've kind of based well no we II was very.
Lucky to be asked to be director of this track I did not create it but it is just.

[3:24] Just what it sounds like culture and cinema from the,
area of the world because if you think about a lot of like old martial arts films and a lot of dance styles and a lot of the food that we have today and tea obviously chai and green tea and things like that so we have panels on all of those things including the clothing
and we try to incorporate as much from different areas as we can
any street fashion is very popular k pop music videos from her yet very popular and a question martial arts we have
panel from mush like we have a guest lever can fushimi jassm after the japanese martial artist and i am and running chance to say it's name
Nicky gyro Japanese martial art master.
Who are you english word i'm i have you here all the time and you know i just,

[4:41] Does this do any Indian films like the Bollywood or is it much more like the the Asian area last night.
We have done Bollywood before and we've had a Bollywood teacher as well so we do include that this year we don't happen to have anything Bollywood related but we do have.
Yeah but you do because please let me know if anybody ever does a Bollywood dance thing I'm going to make.

[5:12] Oh yeah I am.
It's a great thing about Bollywood dance it's like saying hip hop dance you don't have to learn a specific,
dance move it doesn't have to be just like this it's like if you're a hip hop dancer and you dance in New York or you dance you know to music video and you're from California to different style.
Hip Hop,
Incorporated Incorporated hip hop babe had break dance Bollywood.
Movie Industries dance form which one of different styles of dance from India and other areas
oh yeah it very down ambien mother she be used to hand movements that you have from classical indian dance and that you have some bomb grub dance moves for the bouncing it that awesome it was beautiful actually
never seen a bollywood movie in a new really should get there absolutely beautiful the color of you hold the.
It is gorgeous language the story that,
and it like the old if you knew the whole people just spontaneously get luxury of.

[6:32] My husband had passing while driving with aaron i can't wait to be jack johnson said
look at that to many years can xp on that speaking of dance and trying to get back on the topic conflict with what's here today at the box is there,
Lee's Lee is very very exciting today
speaking of the speaking dance you actually do a lot of dance classes to correct.

[6:59] Yes yes we have a couple of one class is on a cracking up for Kpop dance class and that's going to be before the K-pop dance party on Friday so we're going to have a hip hop dance.
Class which is going to be a bunch of different dance styles will allkpop but you know different
pieces from different videos that she puts together every year and teaches a basic General Kpop dance class and we're going to she's going to offer,
what people debt that is next on sunday if you wanna where did on fri and practice on saturday performance that day at all the young moms track
no we should was on
we should I promise I'm going on on Twitter that I would mention us we should point out we incorrectly it was incorrectly stated that K-pop was was Japanese pop but it's it's Korean pop so
just at work we make that correction from a previous previous podcast,
which of course is weird because it is literally that's a K in them
i mean obviously scissors korean pop is there anything special i mean i've heard it but is there.

[8:26] Anything that makes it different than J-pop other than it being in a different country or.

[8:31] Yes it is it is different the the it tends to be for me this is.
Actually since I've started directing the traffic I've learned about J-pop and Jake Kpop in kdramas
things like that that was not really my forte but I love it it's awesome it's so much fun but if you think of like MTV music videos on steroids
and they're usually group um a lot of the video say it's based on water to the imagery and then
that is why cultural context within industry and it on the drive a lot and hip hop from american,
these are the there a group,
turn on girls from a usually all girls are boy groups i'm in you know sort of like.

[9:24] Spice Girls almost and they're usually young and they're put together put together these groups for,
the music video and got a huge convert them are specific dances that everybody learned so we had a video,
panels in our track room and we would play videos people would just get up and they would know them,
no real name of dance along with the video so we're like yeah we need to have a party
pending shell so so the the cape the cape up party is actually gonna be on friday is a correct.

[10:08] Yes it's Friday
evening it's going to be from 8:30 to 12:30 a.m. but yeah Friday night and we're running it also at we're doing our big charity event then we're going to have a lot of
Rave gear yeah we're going to have
sexy cannot bracelets and necklaces and ellie the range and things like that and it's really popular in korean asian general in the face um math with the dust now they glow in the dark
what will happen to the old house to bring dollars charity and will be selling those in all that benefit,
where is the action track chair isn't of your match dollar for dollar by dragon con that is and i did william your day.

[10:58] The owner out.
Yes cuz they erased it which was
you know it is that kind of thing that dollar-for-dollar is matched so again you're kind of sticking it to the man making them give money.
So just FYI that are men and women and that we like them all but,
I did not know like the death mathlete the what some people would like pretended like a surgical mask I didn't know those glow in the dark.
What yeah will we will have them friday night that we get there we go there often when will have like,

There were a couple of videos that those were featured in by the performers show that became very popular in Korean.

the people that are coming in so that's just awesome but John belly dancing so.
Oh that would be a yes here we have only one you want people to come back to your track you but that again.
Actually have a bento penalty of what you know you could be a cake pop union then lyrically about the.
We're like white skinny jeans and a tight little shirt thing.

[14:47] Only if you choose to.
Yeah so we also have things like Bento and Adventure 101 and the person that's doing that and then talk yes she's,
she's awesome because she when her daughter was in school she made bento's for her everyday for school and she has a website called been to Anarchy and so that.

[15:18] That's the one i bring in more cultural that you,
not just the band the pistons game you mentioned i think you mentioned were talking before or gummy is also,
and something else to do so what would I do there,
yeah we have a we have an origami class Saturday Sunday and Monday so the origami classes in an hour but we kind of expended them because people want to keep learning and as we,
will do you will usually start with something easier off lately i don't have fuck up i've usually try to figure it out here
but don't start with something that's a little bit easier like an easier model and and then work their way into more more difficult one and the two main ones that we do is
origami where you make kick one piece of paper and you make something out of it a dog or a house or a crane and then the other one is modular origami.
What a certain number twenty five pieces of paper and you fold them all exactly the same and then you put together into a beer or a box.
Buy pentagram or something like that.

[16:28] And then we have the dog work on me because this is the year of the dog and then Monday morning at 10 a.m. we're going to do an origami class just before we do the Godzilla theater Interactive.

[16:40] Is yeah your guys author interactive sounds extra are only cool with other exhibits or the one before i move on to what that is exactly the.
Cuz I can't remember if we talked about before we started the the origami that's a nice way to Monday morning to it just wind down after.
After Dragon concerts is trying to there and focus.
And do something it's quiet for once cuz.
And you might as you know how to lot of fun today before or the night before and so that's a nice quiet time to help you refocus,
so again soon godzilla was a casual interactive theaters at the was.

[17:30] Godzilla theater interactive yeah yeah we've been doing that for a while and we've always had really good reviews on that Thomas blank
