Woodstock Couple 46 Years Later is Still Together

Woodstock Couple 46 Years Later is Still Together

This Couple From the Woodstock LP Cover is Still Together 46 Years Later

Bobbi and Nick Ercoline's love story is more iconic than most may know. In fact, it was these two whose photo was used as the cover for the Woodstock soundtrack 46 years ago. While Woodstock celebrates its 46th anniversary this week, the Ercolines look back on the event that captured a small, yet essential, moment of their union.
 
Two years after the photo was taken, the two were married. Today, they have two grown children and look back on the event that is both "meaningful" and "phenomenal" in their book, according to Bobbi. 
 
"All those people coming together with no violence, just peace, love and sharing."
 
A moment in time that influenced generations to follow, the Ercolines' picture and story emulate something of a Woodstock fairy tale

Bay Area Aloha Festival - August 11-12, 2018

Bay Area Aloha Festival – August 11-12, 2018

Bay Area Aloha Festival – August 11-12, 2018 
 
    •    What is the PICA Bay Area Aloha Festival?  
The Bay Area Aloha Festival is a free, two-day ethnic arts festival celebrating Pacific Islander culture. Each year thousands of islanders and islanders-at-heart gather to celebrate the culture through music, dance, arts and crafts, authentic food, and educational workshops.  The festival is held during the first full weekend in August.  If August 1st falls on a Sunday, then the festival is held the following weekend.
 
    •    When and where is it this year?
August 11-12, 2018 (Saturday & Sunday), 10:00am – 5:00pm, San Mateo County Event Center (SMCEC), 1346 Saratoga Drive, San Mateo, CA 94403.
 
    •    Why did you move the festival from the San Francisco Presidio to the San Mateo County Event Center (SMCEC)?  
Construction changes at the San Francisco Presidio have resulted in a two-thirds reduction of parking spaces.  This change made it impossible to accommodate the large number of people who drive to our festival.  SMCEC is the home of the annual San Mateo County Fair and has over 2500 parking spaces available.
 
    •    What is the new Aloha Festival layout at the San Mateo County Event Center?
The layout is subject to change, but we have a planned venue map here.  In summary, the entertainment stages will be outdoors in front of the Central Mall Lawn Area (seating info below), food vendors will be in the West Parking Lot, and the `Ohana Korner kids' area will be outside Fiesta Hall.  Arts & Crafts vendors will be inside Expo Hall and the Education Pavilion will be inside Fiesta Hall.  The East Parking Lot at 1346 Saratoga Drive, San Mateo, CA 94403 is the parking lot all attendees should use, and then walk to the entrances at Gates 5 & 6.  The West Parking Lot is for food vendor booths only.
 
    •    Is there a charge for admission?  
No, Aloha Festival still has a free admission policy!  We do this to keep our event affordable for families, many of whom already find the high cost of living in the Bay Area quite challenging.  We are doing our best not to add to that burden.
 
    •    Where do I park?  
There is a large parking lot at the festival site, where paid parking is available for $15.00 per vehicle; an extra charge applies if your vehicle uses more than one slot. We encourage using carpools or public transportation.

Fantasy Studios, is closing (internationally renowned film and music studio)

Fantasy Studios, which has been a center of the music and film scene in the Bay Area since 1971, is shutting down.
 
Located in West Berkeley, the building at 2600 Tenth Street in which it operated is being sold, and that Fantasy Recording Studios will be closing effective September 15th, 2018.
 
Numerous successful albums were recorded there, including Green Day’s 1994 Dookie and Santana’s 1999 Supernatural, which went 15 times platinum and garnered nine Grammy Awards.
 
The list of accomplished artists who have recorded at Fantasy include Green Day, Tony Bennett, Bobby McFerrin, Country Joe McDonald, Creedence Clearwater Revival, McCoy Tyner, Sonny Rollins, Bill Evans, Flora Purim, Journey, Santana, Robert Cray, Aerosmith, Counting Crows, Chris Isaak, and many more. The building has also been a film center for almost 30 years. At least three Academy Award-winning films, including One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest, Amadeus and The English Patient, were produced there.
 
Fantasy Studios was one of the most requested recording studios on the West Coast was comprised of three legendary recording and mixing rooms, all equipped with ProTools HDX and an extensive selection of microphones, outboard gear, instruments, and natural echo chambers. 
 
Fantasy Studios will truly be missed.

Cafe X opens a robotic coffee shop in SF

 
Cafe X opens in San Francisco, bringing robots to the coffee shop
 
The world’s first coffee shop opened in Constantinople in 1555. Four hundred and some years later, Cafe X is putting a twist on that old barista model. Opening in San Francisco today, the startup is opting instead to have a large robotic arm craft your caffeinated potions.
 
Many arguments for automation go, consumers will be directly benefiting from cheaper prices. Cafe X is asking just $2.25 for an 8 oz drink that regularly goes for $4 – $5 in San Francisco. At scale, Cafe X should be able to increase margins within the industry while reducing wait times for hurried patrons.
 
Third-wave coffee affectionados dealing in drips and expensive siphons might find fault in Hu’s thesis, though a Mitsubishi 6-axis industrial robot is arguably the most “elite” tool imaginable for making coffee.

Bob Ross Is Making A Happy Little Comeback At Public Library Paint Nights

It's been more than two decades since iconic painter Bob Ross convinced TV viewers to paint along with him as he chatted and philosophized in his soothing, encouraging voice.
 
Now, libraries around the country are tapping into the phenomenon, holding paint-along evenings where patrons watch Bob Ross episodes and re-create his art. The evenings are such a hit that libraries are creating wait lists and adding more sessions.
 
Here & Now's Robin Young talks with Sarah Burris, who's organizing Bob Ross events for the Northwest Regional Library system in Panama City, Florida. "We've had patrons come in with the Bob Ross T-shirts and the wig," Burris says.

50 YEARS AGO: THE BEATLES ‘YELLOW SUBMARINE’ WAS RELEASED.

50 YEARS AGO: THE BEATLES ‘YELLOW SUBMARINE’ WAS RELEASED.

‘50 YEARS AGO: THE BEATLES ‘YELLOW SUBMARINE’ WAS RELEASED.
 
Yellow Submarine was primarily the brainchild of George Dunning and Al Broadax — the same duo that spearheaded the Beatles cartoon TV series that aired in the U.S. from 1965-69 — along with art director Heinz Edelmann and Lee Minoff, who wrote the story. But the Beatles wanted as little involvement as possible, so actors were brought in to recreate their voices.
 
The Simpsons Wouldn't Exist Without Yellow Submarine.
 
The movie would fundamentally changed the way viewers experience animation. This year, Yellow Submarine celebrates its 50th anniversary. In the half century since its release, animation has evolved beyond what could have imagined in the '60s.
 
RE-RELEASE
The Beatles’ animated feature film, “Yellow Submarine,” will be re-released in North America in July in celebration of its 50th anniversary

Spray-On Yoga Pants?

Spray-On Yoga Pants?

 

Lululemon has created an online ad for spray-on yoga pants in a humorous embrace of a late-night comedy joke. Jimmy Kimmel aired a spoof commercial Thursday about the fake product, called "Lululemon Pledge," while mocking the fact that some schools have banned yoga pants for being too tight."Lululemon Pledge — because the best pants are no pants at all," a voice-over for the ad says.

Tuesday, July 3rd – The Dawdlers, Pop Music

Inspired by the avalanche of great pop music that's come from Britain and its Commonwealth since The Beatles started that train down the tracks, and much American pop since which was in turn inspired by that, The Dawdlers play a mixture of cover and original music, including songs by British artists Squeeze, Crowded House, Elvis Costello, The Police & Sting, Keane, Coldplay, Peter Gabriel, Paul Rodgers, and those of their British invader forebears Gerry & The Pacemakers, The Dave Clark Five, and, of course, The Beatles themselves, as well as many complementary songs by American artists like Cheap Trick, Marshall Crenshaw, Kacey Musgraves, Los Lobos, The Stray Cats, The Pretenders, & Shawn Colvin.
