One thing is obvious, Lulu is a positive spirit.

Danny Choo

If you've lived in Tokyo long enough -- or spent time wading through the oceans of YouTube videos -- there's a good chance you've spotted Danny Choo roaming the streets. You may not recognize him by face though, and that's because when you have seen him he was in full Stormtrooper uniform. More than just a servant of the Empire, Danny has used the success gained from his costume outings -- resulting in not only YouTube fame, but international media coverage as well -- to help power his own web portal, which brings in over 2 million unique visitors a month, all eager to follow Danny's adventures in Japan, as well as his coverage of topics near and dear to the hearts of the otaku worldwide. Danny presented at PechaKucha Night in Tokyo Vol. 60 -- and yes, he was in full costume.

Pet Cha Koo Cha

Earlier this month we posted a photo of PKN Edmonton trying to teach its audience how to pronounce "PechaKucha" -- during PKN Edmonton Vol. 3 -- and now you get to see the video. Seems like they're doing much better than the efforts in Johannesburg.

Gary Cheng

As we mentioned last week, one of the most exciting features of the new PechaKucha site is the "Presentations" section, where you can view a selection of presentations in beautiful full-screen, listening to the original audio recorded during the event. Over the coming weeks we'll be adding the ability to embed the player we created anywhere, which will make it easier to share your favorite presentations with everyone -- and we'll of course be highlighting plenty here at PechaKucha Daily. In the meantime, do take a look at what's there now. The latest addition is from this past Wednesday's Tokyo Design Week edition of PKN Tokyo, and is an amazing look at the evolution of Hong Kong-based architect Gary Cheng's apartment through the years. Gary has lived in this 32sqm apartment from the age of 14. 30 years later he is still living there in the heart of Hong Kong. This is an incredible story of how his home has transformed over the years -- and still continues to transform.

PechaKucha Night Vol. 1 in Tegus

Greetings from Tegucigalpa, or we locals call it, Tegus! In 3 very short weeks we will be launching the first PechaKucha Night ever in our Central American country of Honduras. We have just revealed our amazing poster designed by the very talented designer Alicia Medina, a cool lady whose experience includes illustration, branding, and art direction among other things. The poster design is based on popular local handicrafts that are a symbol of Honduras - handpainted clay roosters in bright, happy colors.  During this first volume of PechaKucha Tegus we'll be sharing stories from chefs, yoginis, actors, film directors, artists, street artists and even beer brewers. It's bound to be a vibrant mix of ideas and interesting people on this warm summer night.  We'll keep you all posted on how our very first night goes. We're really excited and we think it'll be a total hit. Til next time!

Chit Chat

Despite slightly suffering with the remnants of a horrible lurgy, I'm pressing on with assembling the slides for tonight's Pecha Kucha Coventry Volume 15. Running order has been a bit trickier than usual to sort - normally the order just kind of suggests itself and the order always works because of the random connections it unwittingly throws up. Let's hope I haven't thought about it too much this time... So here it is: Julia O'Connell - A Kiss from France Jon Plumley - The Charterhouse Steve Compton - What Far Gosford Street means to me Laura Elliott - Laura and Popple: celebrating 30 years <sake & chat break> Atma Singh - post-tsunami Nikki Pugh - 29 not-quite-random walks around Tokyo Matthew Macaulay - form/function Richard Tomlins - What Far Gosford Street means to me <sake & chat break> Then there's karaoke! All part of the Japanese Cultural Festival at The Tin Music & Arts. More here: http://thetinmusicandarts.org.uk/events/japanese-cultural-festival/

Let the chit chat begin! Pecha Kucha nights, Birmingham edition

Rocio Carvajal Cortés writes about her experience talking at the 12th Birmingham Pecha Kucha!  Taking part on a multicultural, interdisciplinary and international conversation, meeting new people, new ideas and be surprised by the infinite resources of human creativity is what PechaKucha is all about. As long-time fan, host and speaker I was excited to see the open invitation to participate in the 12th edition of PK nights in Birmingham, UK. It had been a long time since I last experienced one and it was in another continent, another latitude and I was involved in projects around urbanism and regeneration. Here you can see a sample of the works I presented years ago for a PK in Oaxaca, Mexico. After a friendly and quick exchange of emails with Ben Waddington and Pete Ashton I was signed up to share my new projects on gastronomic heritage and colonial bread from Mexico.  The impeccable organisation was only compared with the rather sophisticated venue, the brand new and dare I say already emblematic Curzon Building of Birmingham City University was a glamorous canvas for a night full of thought-provoking projects and interesting people. It was a great experience and I’m ever so thankful to the PK-Brum team for having us all on the 12th edition.  I invite you to believe in the power of open and limitless imagination; make things happen and share. Rocio Watch her talk: The Language of Food: Bread Stamping in Colonial Mexico.
