INNOCENT at the Smithsonian

Ken's play is going to DC...and the video's going too.
Just got the press release...looks like INNOCENT will be performed on Feb. are the details...
To mark the 66th anniversary of the signing of Executive Order 9066 by President Franklin D. Roosevelt which led to the incarceration of 120,000 Americans of Japanese ancestry during World War II, the Smithsonian APA program presents the critically acclaimed new play, Innocent When You Dream, by Ken Narasaki.

Fresh from its Los Angeles world premiere, the cast arrives intact to present a staged reading of their production, which was named a "Critic's Choice" by the Los Angeles Times and a "Pick of the Week" by LA Weekly, and won the 2006 Kumu Kahua Pacific Rim Playwriting Award.

A Nisei father lies in a hospital bed, only partly aware of his two adult children who have arrived at his bedside, unsure their father will survive. While the father returns to his interned past searching for a lost first love, his children bicker and argue, not quite ready to let their last parent go.

FFFFound It!

Thanks to my friend Karim over at Logicalnot for turning me on to, a really great place to wander around and a great place to get design ideas.

Users can upload their favorite images, but the really interesting thing is that you can "favorite" images which will then lead you to more images along the lines of what you're interested in. For some reason I kept stumbling on young Darth here...interesting image, no? It works on so many levels...

FFFFOUND's in private beta right now, but you can still poke around. BTW: the photo originally came from
