I think there’s no better time to reflect on Seattle’s 2011 Bumbershoot®: Seattle’s Music & Arts Festival, which I had a three-day pass to, than exactly four weeks after the start of the festival. Instead of writing detailed reviews for everything I saw, I decided to break it into what I thoroughly enjoyed, what I didn’t love and what I wished I saw.
I thoroughly enjoyed:
- The Improvised Shakespeare Company
- MarchFourth Marching Band
- YACHT (music)
- The Trey McIntyre Project (dance)
- Trombone Shorty & Orleans Avenue
- Dan Savage and Terry Miller: It Gets Better (words and ideas panel)
- Manos: The Hands of Felt by Puppet This
- 1 Reel Film Festival - Frankly Female films: Election Day, Worn, 0507
I didn’t love:
- Why Censorship? Why Revolution? Why Now? (words and ideas panel)
- Kristin Hersh: Paradoxical Undressing (music/monologue one-woman show)
- 1 Reel Film Festival – Frankly Female film: Connect To
- Visual art: The Magic Show, Skaters Gauntlet, Bumber by Number
I wish I saw:
- Spectrum Dance Theater
- Vendetta Red
- Lots of 1 Reel Film Festival: Best of SIFF 2011 Jury Award Winners, Best of SIFF Audience Award Winners, Around the World in 50 Minutes

I’ve been in Seattle and Maine for about a month and a half now and have been a little lazy about blogging. I have some post ideas that require actual work to put together, but in the meantime, I will share a short list of blog posts from others in China that I found particularly worth reading. I think this post is pretty ironic considering the second link down.
Why Do Students Give? [specifically Chinese students] from Collective Responsiblity
Also, I just learned from Thomas Crampton’s blog about Herdict, where you can see what sites are blocked in a country of your choice. Apparently we can add Foursquare to this (long) list (of highly popular-in-the-U.S.) sites in China. I’d appreciate any other good sites that monitor the GFW in the comments.
