Theme: Revisit your favorite scenes from the silver screen.
Place: Kopis Gallery (http://www.g-kopis.com/) ph. 03-5639-2381

The gallery is very close to the Shirakawakarasumi station.
Just use exit A3, when you finish climbing the stairs take a left and then an another immediate left. When you hit the road, go right and the Kopis Gallery will be on the next corner.
I picked a number of movies to riff on, including many of my faves like Star Wars or A Clockwork Orange. Please stop by and pick up a few postcards or a print (or two).

But I knew what it was like to be the little guy. The new kid on the block. And I knew what it was like going up against an institutionalized system of separating the "winners" from the "losers". Luckily, I had friends in and out of school that liked me for who I was and not for who I desperately thought I wanted to be. It took me a little while and Karate Kid 2 to realize what I did want. The summer that KK2 was the summer where I decided to take control of my life and stopped worrying about what the @$$holes thought. It wasn't even a gradual thing.
