"I snatch photos, like rain drops, of the visions around me." -an excerpt from Peter Furia's imitation of my blog. It was all in the delivery.

"In Los Angeles, once-upon-a-time a demi-paradise of free beaches, luxurious parks, and 'cruising strips', genuinely democratic space is all but extinct." -Mike Davis, 'City of Quartz'

A portrait of my workplace...
"No good deed goes unpunished." -Roberto Harvito (my beloved 60yr. old co-worker who loves hard core rap and rollerskate dancing).

On a black night
A dark seed sprouted white
Leaving forty feet of jagged metal beams
Winding upwards into every kids bad dreams

And up, half way to the sky
Covered in rust as if to hide
Sat a two ton box
With two little girls inside

And in the darkness they grew strong
And in the darkness they grew tall
And together they shivered in the cold metal walls.

Until one day, a clumsy bird
Off course in its flight
Hit the wall head first, cracked the metal,
And let in the light.
-excerpt from 'Freaks' a poem written by my brother and me.

Brian looks annoyed.

One night in K-town.

Smashbox Opening... yummy food, free drinks, good company. I would say it was a strong to very strong show, thanks for the encouragement Donna and for the rose Pandy, loved that yellow dress... BITCHHHHH.

Big Brother has spoken.

In search of beer at the Hollywood Bowl... for future reference it's byob and the stands they do have close at 9:15pm... dammit.
