Re: “Best Street Chalk Artist

Mark Wagner is one of the greatest artists I know. He is passionate and a genius in organizing these street chalk happenings with kids. Very valuable.

From a Dutch photographer and admirer of Mark Wagner's work, Patricia Steur.

Re: “Best Novelist

Christi Phillips deftly shuttles the reader between 17th century London and modern-day Cambridge. I couldn't make up my mind which world I liked best.

That's really gneiss. I'm glad to see you're not taking him for granite.

Just for the sake of precision: MOG's library has 8 million songs and we add at least 13,000-15,000 each week! Thanks so much EBX for the shout-out, we're proud to be an East Bay start-up!

Re: “Best Kanji Crash Course

Not very good at all!

Needed to be more informative and descriptive!

Personally, I think that!

The rest is your kind consideration!

Re: “Best Cover Band

Awesome band. I just saw them last night at Courthouse Square in Redwood City. They rocked the Square! They are, by far, the best cover band I have ever seen in my 44 years. I am a freelance photojournalist and this was the best music event I have ever covered. I will follow their music for sure. Glad they are an East Bay band!

to see my photos, go to:

click on the link and then browse all the photos from this event.

Re: “Best Dance Joint at Which to Hear Real Smokin' Louisiana Music

I've found that Cajun-Zydeco events are a REAL ATTITUDE AJUSTMENT to begin with----
learn the basics and then you can just get real silly-----dont need to drink, smoke, or cuss,
just get out on the dance floor----les bon Temps roulon---merci beaucoup.
