Giant Robot at Kokoro Craft Affair

We don’t “table” often at events except Comic Con. Yet the annual Kokoro Craft Affair at JANM is a perfect combination of community, fundraising and family. It’s run by the volunteers and it’s estimated that a 1000 people came through. Vendors spotted the lobby and hall, MC’s made raffle announcements and Lomo Arigato truck set up outside. We’re visited by the volunteers, staffers, many who are now old friends and faces that make us want to be the best GR we can be. The better we are, the better the museum is – even if it’s just a tiny speck of improvement. When Museum head Dr. Greg Kimura came by and said, “well, it’s not quite Comic-Con…” I’m thinking it’s more than Comic-Con.

Big Boss Robot Cap on Mr Daniel Wu

Daniel Wu Yan-Zu is all over paparazzi news because of the Big Boss Robot Cap. We admit, we don’t understand what’s being said, but we think it’s all about the great cap he’s wearing. We still have these here. There’s also a video. Although he just had a new baby, we’re honored that the cap is much more important. link

That “BB” must be “Big Boss”.

“What a great looking cap! Daniel’s aight too”

Seriously, congrats, DW.
