I dunno who is interested in all this and who isn't, but here's the pics from my exciting life last week. Whoopee.
Last Friday, Richard took Martin and me to a new coffee shop (translation: old one we hadn't been to before) and I was particularly amused that, not only was it somewhat dirty and filled with Disaffected Youth, it had the required copy of Catcher in the Rye sitting on a table. The place couldn't have been much more cliche'd and continued to exist on this plane.
I did like the signs they had though. The first one says "Drink Coffee: Do stupid things faster and with more energy!" and the second one says "Coffee! You can sleep when you're dead!" We also had dinner that night at Sizzler, but other than the fact that this Sizzler had the best salad bar I've seen in years, there's only so much you can say about Sizzler.
The next afternoon/night (last Saturday) we went to Universal Citywalk, which I've mentioned to some of you out-of-towners before, but I think I only had one or two pictures. Here's more of the glitz that makes Hollywood so exciting. Woo.
More Citywalk. Everyone together now. "Woo"
Thursday night our friend Leslie from Kanary (some of you may remember her from my livejournal) invited us to hear her and several other chicks sing at an acoustic pajama party at "Che's Lounge" held in Hollenbeck's Coffee Shop/General Store. Me and Martin had to pick up some pajamas at a thrift store since they wouldn't let us in in our usual wear. No, it's not as bad as it sounds, at least not in my case. Ordinarily, I wouldn't have called Leslie a friend, cause I thought she considered us just nice fans, but she invited us to sit at her table so I guess at least peripherally we're friends now. Anyways, she was the ONLY one wearing lingerie, OF COURSE, this is Leslie we're talking about. Here she is singing her first song.
This is Linda Geleris (you can look her up if you want, she has a website) singing a song about her staid mom and an old picture she has of her mom young and riding on the back of a Harley. Real nice song. There were about 8 women (oh heck, Womyn, most of them seemed pretty damn liberal and a few obviously had no truck with men....) singing that night, but I only took pics of the exceptional ones so as not to bore y'all too much. Martin bought an album from Linda, BTW.
This is Che' Zuro, website checheche.com. She was the one who ran it and her last song was REALLY fun, she has a great sense of humor and her music is very good. No offense to Leslie, but she was my favorite that night, I may get an album at some point. Downloads at her site if anyone is interested, although I doubt it since I recommended Breech much stronger and no one ever mentioned visiting them. You'd think you guys had no interest in the Los Angeles Music Scene!
Look at this dude's PJ's. Aren't they the COOLEST!?!? Real Monkees Pyjamas! I could have DIED they were so cool. Speaking of cool, I had brought my "Gir Disguised as a Dog" stuffed animal (from Invader Zim) and NO ONE recognized who it was. Both me and Martin came to the conclusion that despite the fact that there were some very cool singers there, that overall, my stuffed animal outcooled the room.
A nice shot of Leslie singing her second song. Despite the fact everyone was in slippers, she wore her Death Boots. She told everyone, Yes, She Sleeps In Them ; )
Martin, Leslie and Me. Altogether now. "Woo."
Now we're all caught up, don't you feel informed?
