Last night was the most recent meeting of The Turtle Party: Book Club where we discussed our final thoughts on the Charles Bukowksi novel Post Office. There were a couple of readers who weren’t too keen on the book but most of us loved its simple and colorful style. I, personally, loved the book and am very much looking forward to reading more of Bukowski‘s work.
Andy was charged with bringing a few selections for our next book and from his picks we decided to read Everything Is Illuminated by Jonathan Safran Foer:
Funny enough, I picked up this book a few months ago to have on hand because I’ve always wanted to read it … it’s been on my “To Read” book pile for a while so now I can finally read it. I understand that this book was made into a movie starring Elijah Wood but I don’t think any of us Turtle Partiers have seen it. Because of the coming holidays, we decided to change up our meeting schedule a bit … we’ll be meeting in 3 weeks time (instead of two) and then again after the New Year.
Last night’s get-together was really fun … I really enjoy getting together for our book club meetings. We have so much fun :)
Plans for tonight are in flux … so I’m not sure what I’m doing yet. Unfortch, I’ve not been feeling better at all so I honestly would not be opposed to another relaxing night at home. I could get some reading done :)
OOOOOH and I’m happy to report that my ticket for the Michael Jackson: This Is It concert performance that David and I were supposed to see back in September (which never happened due to MJ‘s untimely death) finally arrived. As I understand it, there were 8 different 3D designs printed on the various tickets for the various performances:
The tickets printed with the special lenticular process, were inspired and designed by Michael Jackson for the fans attending his shows. This is the actual “oversized” concert ticket, measuring 82mm x 186mm (3.23in x 7.32in) for the 50 This Is It shows at The O2. His hopes were his fans would want to keep the special ticket as a reminder of the memorable evening that they would share together. The lenticular concert tickets feature one of eight unique designs printed via the lenticular printing process. Lenticular printing is a 3D process that can contain animation, multiple photos, morphing or a combination of these. The front of the ticket is the lenticular image and the reverse side is the standard ticket detail including the performer name, tour name, show date, venue, section number, row number, and seat number.
*Ticket images are not to scale and are a still image snapshot of the actual moving image represented on the concert ticket.
