It's at Kabuki

ABUKI is a form of traditional Japanese theater which began performing during the Edo Period in the 17th century. These theater groups traveled the lands to perform for villagers and commoners, not for royalty and the privileged.

Predominantly made up of male actors dressed in extravagant costumes and supernatural makeup, they shared stories of love, moral conflicts and historical events. We hope that while you dine with us, you too can share stories with those around.

Since 1991, our vision for KABUKI Japanese Restaurant has been to create high-energy, family-friendly and value-oriented Japanese restaurants. It is our everyday mission to deliver quality and freshness, great service, clean restaurants and value to our guests. Ultimately, we hope our guests will come to appreciate Japanese cuisine as comfort food. This all starts when you walk in and are greeted with IRASHAI-MASE! Today, you are about to experience the cuisine and beverages passionately crafted by two gentlemen who are not only dedicated to providing you the best in Japanese cuisine, but also dedicated to spreading the culture of Japanese dining to our guests. The tireless

efforts of Executive Corporate Chef Masa Kurihara and Master Sake Sommelier Yuji Matsumoto are aimed to attain total satisfaction from you. They will be heart broken if you feel otherwise. Presently, KABUKI Restaurants, Inc. operates 14 KABUKI Japanese Restaurants in Arizona, California and Nevada. We are committed to bringing the KABUKI Japanese Restaurant experience to many more communities throughout America. Despite our expansion, our humble attitudes from 1991 remain; to treat each customer and employee like family and to care about the communities we serve. Please enjoy your dining experience with us. Let us know how we are doing. DOMO ARI-GATO GOZAI-MASU!

The World and Style of Fornasetti How surreal art became fashion plates.

art ByDagmarFiction

.

Piero Fornasetti (10 November 1913 - 1988) was an Italian painter, sculptor, interior decorator and engraver

-Piero Fornasetti

10 ANGELES MAGAZINE

Dear contemporaries, don’t you realise how different we are? Although I depict you as equals and like the ancients you never change.

Combining whimsy and elegance, Piero Fornasetti (1913–1988) transformed everyday objects like cups, scarves, and screens into works of art featuring his idiosyncratic leitmotifs, such as the hand, the female face, and luminescent fish. Additionally, he created a wide range of works, including idealized architectural fantasy drawings, book designs, and provocative nudes, as well as the decor

for the luxury liner Andrea Doria. Perhaps most famous for dazzling pieces of trompe l’oeil furniture, Fornasetti was rediscovered in the 1980s and has remained much sought-after by collectors worldwide. Featuring 2,800 illustrations, many never before published, the monograph is designed to be an “artist’s book” that reflects as faithfully as possible Fornasetti’s own approach to design.

10Reasonsto Fall Love Do we really need an excuse

It makes you better-looking.

This is not a joke. Believe it or not, falling in love can really make you look a lot better. If you’re the type of person who doesn’t care about your physical appearance, fall in love and see how you would change. When you’re in love, you will always try to look your very best not just to impress the one you love but also to feel good about yourself. You feel conscious about your outfit, your hair and your movements.

Even when you don’t exert any effort on improving your appearance, love really brings something magical to its victims. When people are in love, they smile a lot. There is a certain glowing aura that people in love ANGELES MAGAZINE 14emit that radiates happiness.

8

Itmakesyounicer.

How can you be mean to people around you when there is someone who makes every minute of your life wonderful? When people are in love, we tend to focus on our feelings for that lucky person and pay not much attention to other things, much less to the things that make our blood reach the boiling point. And because there is someone who makes us smile every time, it is hard to frown and make other people’s lives miserable. We tend to forget our bitter past and our plans of revenge in the future because what matters is the present.

When you’re in love, you care about yourself. It’s not just physical appearance, it is your overall well-being including your health. If you used to ignore that migraine you’ve been enduring for years, when you’re in love, there is a high chance that you would call your doctor for an appointment and schedule a check-up. You might even undergo tests that you have been putting off for the longest time like mammogram and PSA. When you’re in love, there is an intense urge to care for your health because you want to live long, because you have a good reason to. You want to live long not just for yourself but also for that special someone. If suicidal thoughts enter your mind all the time, you will forget about them altogether when you fall in love. You have a reason to live now and you know how your self-destruction makes him or her feel. And you don’t want him/her to be hurt, especially not by you.

Itmakesyouricher.

It doesn’t mean that you should marry Donald Trump or some other billionaire. Even if you fall in love with an average guy, you have more chances of getting rich. This is because you are more inspired to work and you have another reason to work hard. Intentionally or unintentionally, you will find yourself doing your job a little less exhausting because the feeling of going home to someone you love keeps you through the day in a way that you don’t realize how much work you have done. This is true. Studies have shown that individuals in long-term committed relationships earn more than those who stay single. So if you want to get rich, fall in love.

It makes you healthier.

6

It makes you mushier.

There’s nothing wrong with being mushy. It only means that you are sentimental and emotional. It only means that you care about how other people feel, especially the person you are in love with. If you have always thought that the lines uttered in those romantic movies are stupid, you will be surprised to find yourself in one, saying those mushy lines. It is alright. There is nothing unmanly about expressing how you feel and letting your significant other know how important he or she is to you. It is not a crime. Being mushy is not a crime.

It makes you stronger.

Although it can also make you weaker in certain ways, falling in love makes you stronger. How? First of all, sex is a good workout. Seriously, people in love want and try to be strong for themselves and those we care for. We will do and endure anything to protect the person we love and give them what he or she wants. When we are sick, we want to get better fast so we can enjoy more time with him or her. We become stronger so we can catch them when they fall and lift them when their down.

1

When you’re in love, you will never find yourself alone. You already have a partner to do things with and it’s not just sex. Yes, sex makes people happy but it’s more than that. Simple activities can become fantastic when you do it with someone, especially with the one you truly treasure. These things will make you happy and it will show big time. You’ll be surprised that you will see yourself smiling and laughing all the freaking damn time. You think about him or her, you smile. You see him/her walking, you smile. You see him/her trip on her toe, you smile. When you’re in love, you always think positive.

2

Being strong can also be interpreted in another way. Some people can take all the pain that love brings just so they don’t lose them. Even when they are hurt by factors ranging from differences to third party to family, they choose to stay in the relationship because they are strong enough and they know that it will pass. Love is not easy to let go. If we can keep it, we will. Love is like that. It’s pleasure and pain rolled into one and it takes a lot of strength. Love is not for the weak-

4

It makes you wiser.

Being in a relationship is not all about sunshines and rainbows. There are bad, depressing moments, too. Although it is not a good reason to fall in love, it is not a reason not to, either. In fact, mistakes are essential in love. Each mistake teaches you something important. Every time you make a mistake, you learn. And every time you learn, you become wiser. This enables you not to do the same mistakes again. Being wise means growing up. And it takes grownups to run a relationship.

It makes you happier.

3

Itmakesyoumorecreative.

When you’re in love, you think of new ways to take your loved one’s breath away. You cannot do things over and over again or you will beth get tired. You will be forced to come up with new, refreshing ways of saying “I love you,” of celebrating anniversaries, of letting him or her know how you feel. In some cases, people find themselves learning or trying to do things new to them like writing songs or doing something embarrassing. The funny part is, you don’t complain because you enjoy doing it. Weird, but you really do. Another way of being creative is when he or she asks you where you have been last night. Yeah, that will really squeeze out all the creative juices in you.

it makes you more responsible.

If your life is in disarray, you will set everything straight when you’re in love. You will find a good job because you think of your future together. You will take good care of your finances. You will fix your relationship with your family. You will forget about your unfinished business with your exes. You will even clean your room, which you haven’t done since you hit puberty. When you’re in love, your life develops a sense of direction. ANGELES MAGAZINE

Building With a Twist the Walt Disney Hall

T

he Los Angeles Philharmonic continues its reinvention of the concept of a 21st-century orchestra under the vibrant leadership of Gustavo Dudamel. Embarking on its 92nd season in 2010/11, the Philharmonic is recognized as one of the worldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s outstanding orchestras and is received enthusiastically by audiences and critics alike. Both at home and abroad, the Philharmonic is leading the way in innovative programming and redefining the musical experience.

ANGELES MAGAZINE

This view is shared by more than one million listeners who experience live performances by the Los Angeles Philharmonic each year. The Philharmonic demonstrates a breadth and depth of programming unrivaled by other orchestras and cultural institutions, performing or presenting nearly 300 concerts throughout the year at its two iconic venues: Walt Disney Concert Hall and the Hol-

lywood Bowl, a popular summer tradition since 1922. The orchestraâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s involvement with Los Angeles also extends far beyond regular symphonic performances in a concert hall, embracing the schools, churches, and neighborhood centers of a vastly diverse community.

The 94 musicians of the new ensemble met for their first rehearsal Monday morning, October 13 of that year, under the direction of Walter Henry Rothwell, whom Clark had brought from the St. Paul (Minnesota) Symphony

Orchestra. Eleven days later, Rothwell conducted the orchestra’s premiere performance before a capacity audience of 2,400 at Trinity Auditorium in downtown Los Angeles. The audience heard Dvořák’s New World Symphony, Liszt’s Les Préludes, the Overture to Weber’s Oberon, and Chabrier’s España.

Rothwell remained the orchestra’s Music Director until his death in 1927. Since then, ten renowned conductors have served in that capacity: Georg Schnéevoigt (1927-1929); Artur Rodzinski (1929-1933); Otto Klemperer (1933-1939); Alfred Wallenstein (1943-1956); Eduard van Beinum (1956-1959); Zubin Mehta (19621978); Carlo Maria Giulini (19781984); André
