Saturday Night at Warner Village

Last night, Catherine & I went to the movies. We decided to go to the theater at Warner Village, an area of the city that closely resembles a shopping zone in the U.S. It's just a stones throw from Taipei 101. Lots of expensive shops and American-style restaurants.

We wanted to see "Shooter", but the only seats available were way down in front and neither one of us likes to sit that close to the screen. Instead, we ended up seeing "Premonition", a disappointing movie starring Sandra Bullock. In Taiwan, you have to reserve your seats when you buy your tickets, it's not first-come, first-served like in the States. I didn't like the movie, but I enjoyed spending the time with Catherine, as usual.

I managed to snap a few pics of some things we saw while waiting for the movie to start, enjoy!

Not sure what to call these folks...they sorta look like tree people. They are very good, had us mesmerized for a few moments.

More from the kinda scary tree people. Catherine & I debated on whether they were men or women. I think the one on the right is a man. She thought they were both women...

This is a giant version of one of those claw dropping, grab a worthless prize machines. It's impressive. This is on the main walkway through the shopping district. If you look closely, you can see Lebron James in the background. I would like to try it just to see what crap you can win.

I'm speechless. I took this picture earlier in the day outside my local subway station. This is a public service poster. It uses the word shit four times! Can you imagine the reaction such a sign would get in the U.S.? Too Funny!
