Sayonara Tsukiji as exodus of famed fish markeanimal charity wristbandst beginsAustin Texas City Of Music Festivals It"s been an interesting year for punk rock music. Ann Arbor"s punk acolytes Iggy and the Stooges were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum last month, and punk rock impresario and Sex Pistols manager Malcolm McLaren died on April 8, 2010, at age 64. But the headlines stretch further into the home of the aforementioned Rock Hall as well. Taking Woodstock: Rated R for graphic nudity, some sexual content, drug use and language. 120 mins. A comedy based on the real-life story of Elliot Tiber (Demetri Martin), whose family was involved in making the Woodstock Music and Arts Festival happen. The bank is about to foreclose on the family motel and Elliot moves back home to help his parents. When he learns the permit for the festival wristbands in a neighboring town has been cancelled, he contacts the producers and tries to drum up some business for the motel. Three weeks later half a million people are on their way to his neighbor"s farm and his life will be forever changed. Variety - Move in a variety of ways. Think beyond "traditional" work outs and incorporate things like balance, agility, flexibility, power, speed, strength, calisthenics, "spinal hygiene", sport wristbands, dance, play, and so on. Think outside the box. There"s more to exercise (and life) than "cardio" and "resistance". Prices vary not only according to size, but other factors also have a bearing on the cost. For example, a lined marquee is generally more expensive than an unlined one. Traditional marquees tend to be a little more expensive than frame marquees, but this is not a rule, as prices can also vary according to the design and style of the structure. Something exotic such as a Tepee could be more difficult to find and therefore more costly than a standard marquee, all other things being equal. Next, figure out how you are going to do ticket sales. The venue may have a box office and a ticketing system already in place, but most don"t. There are several websites that are made just for handling online ticket sales for indie concerts, or you may want to contact a company that specializes in event wristbands. You can even do a combination of both. Whichever method you choose, you need to keep careful track of tickets sales so you don"t exceed capacity at the venue. Once you"ve got these details nailed down you can focus on marketing and putting on your best show ever. "It was all very spontaneous," Chrome says. "I"ve known Syl since the "70s and the Dolls were a big influence on me. But the idea (for collaboration) came from Frank (Mauceri) from Smog Veil (Records), who asked if we wanted to do a recording project together. Once your event is concluded, do not forget to ask all attendees for some form of feedback good or bad. You should make inquiries as to what they enjoyed about the event, what they did not and what could be done to improve the overall experience at the event. This will enable you to better prepare for your next seminar or workshop.
Businesses bid emotional farewell to Tokyo institution ahead of move to new site
TOKYO - Hundreds of fishmongers on forklifts and trucks rose before dawn in Tokyo to join a mammoth exodus of vendors as the world-famous Tsukiji market relocates to a new site.
In small vehicles and the market"s "turret trucks" - one-man flatbeds with a barrelshaped steering column at the front - they drove out of the Tsukiji site one last time, headed for Toyosu, the market"s new home.
The main bridge out from the market was closed to traffic for the move, with security guards in place to wave along the leaving wholesalers who drove in orderly lines between safety cones topped with flashing red and green lights.
Hundreds of the 900 businesses that once handled 480 kinds of seafood worth $14 million daily - as well as 270 types of fruits and vegetables - are relocating.
A total of 2,600 turret trucks and forklifts will drive just over 2 kilometers from Tsukiji to the new site over a period of five days, according to the Tokyo metropolitan government.
The move began a day after fishmongers gathered before dawn for the final tuna auction.
It was an emotional moment for veterans of the market, the beating heart of Tokyo"s culinary scene for decades, which many acknowledged had become too rundown to support its mammoth operations.
"I"m almost crying," said Hisao Ishii, a retired seafood auctioneer who was back at the market for its final day.
"Today is a sad day of goodbyes. Tsukiji tried to meet the times, but it is getting older," the 68-year-old added. "I came here today to tell Tsukiji thank you and goodbye."
The 83-year-old market"s move has been in the works for decades, prompted by its rundown state, but it has been a lengthy and controversial process, hindered by pollution rows and construction delays.
The discovery of soil contamination at Toyosu, formerly home to a gas plant, sparked safety fears about the new site and forced local authorities to spend millions of dollars to clean up the area.
Bitter taste for some
After experts declared Toyosu safe, the Tokyo governor took the final decision to move the market there in late 2017, ending years of delays.
But while the new site promises state-of-the-art refrigeration and will keep gawping tourists away from the business of the market in a gallery behind glass, the move has still left a bitter taste for some.
"I feel nostalgic as Tsukiji has been my home ground for 15 years. We are sad to lose the Tsukiji brand," vegetable wholesaler Tsukasa Kujirai said on Saturday.
Opened in 1935, Tsukiji was for many years known only to its vendors and the food industry, but it gained international renown in recent decades and its tuna auctions even hit the headlines, with one fish going for a record $1.8 million at the market"s New Year"s auction in 2013.
The highest bidder at Saturday"s final auction paid 4.4 million yen ($38,700) for a bluefin tuna weighing 162 kilograms caught off Aomori, northern Japan.
Toyosu will officially throw open its doors on Oct 11.
