2009 Chinese New Year Festival at Chinatown Cultural Plaza

January 12, 2009 at 05:58PM

Last Friday and Saturday United Chinese Coalition hosted its first week of the 2009 Chinese New Year Festival at the Chinatown Cultural Plaza. I performed two sets Friday night. My special guest Joel Spiral joined me for my second set performance to share the Chinese legend of the Ox.

This week Friday and Saturday will be the second week of the 2009 Chinese New Year Festival. I'm expected to perform on both nights. Joel Spiral will join me again for Friday, and I am working to bring another surprise guest. Entertainment at the Chinatown Cultural Plaza goes from 6pm to 10pm.

Here are photos from last Friday's event:

There are soooooooo many others I could list! I LOVE to read!

Well, here are some of my favorite classics: Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury, The Catcher in the Rye by J.D. Salinger, To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee, The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald, and The Lord of the Rings (series) by J.R.R. Tolkien. Some great non-fiction books about the dance culture I love include Foundation by Joseph Schloss, which is an excellent book about NYC B-boy/B-girl or breaking/breakdance culture, Can't Stop Won't Stop by Jeff Chang, which is a great historical analysis of American Hip Hop culture, and The Underground is Massive by Michelangelo Mathos, an amazing history of electronic dance music culture. Happy reading everyone :)

Enders Game, The Great Gatsby, Of Men and Mice, Maximum Ride. I need to read more books. I haven't read so long Bc I've been attached to the ones I've already read.

Jason You're amazing guy! Huge congrats from Poland!

Jason Tom is a one-of-a-kind individual. During my sophomore year of high school, I remember watching him beatbox for our school for just a few minutes and was blown away by the amount of talent he was able to showcase in just that limited amount of time. Fast forward about three years or so, I was looking to write a feature story of a KCC alumnus/alumna for the KCC newspaper and came across Jason's name online. He was quick to respond to me when I reached out to him, and he was very interested in being featured. I got the chance to interview him, and couldn't believe the stories that he had to share with me. Over a two hour period, I was able to learn a lot about who Jason was, and he has proved to me that anybody can make it in life when even in the toughest situations. His humor and charismatic nature really bring his personality to life, and I blows me away to know that he has a positive impact on the community not only through his beatboxing but also through his words. Jason is inspiring, and I'm glad that I got to chat with him and share his story with many others and beyond.
