Mayor of the Sunset Strip

Filed under: — stan @ 3:09 pm

We went to see “Mayor of the Sunset Strip” today. It was really good. Got to see Rodney everywhere in Hollywood. Lots of fun.

Maestro

Filed under: — stan @ 8:07 pm

Today we went to see “Maestro”, which is a documentary about early underground dance clubs in New York, and how they spawned a whole genre of music. It was interesting, but the visual look of the film was kind of hard to watch.

Evolving Light

We went to the opening party for “Evolving Light” at the Museum of Neon Art this evening. The new exhibit had lots of nice neon pieces.

The further dumbing of America…

We got to see an advance screening of “10.5″, a made-for-TV disaster movie today. Overall, it was pretty cheesy. The screenshot below pretty much sums up the whole movie. Didn’t the writers have a dictionary?

We support cartoonists

Tonight we went down to Flor y Canto to see Keith Knight. He talked and showed some slides of his work. He was very funny. We also bought a copy of his latest book, which he signed for us. Overall, it was a fun little adventure.

Something funny

Filed under: — stan @ 9:48 pm

There is a crew filming a movie in front of a house on San Pasqual near Caltech. I guess that it’s supposed to be set in some place that’s not Southern California, because they’re wrapping sheets of rubber fake bark on the trunks of the palm trees to make them look like ‘regular’ trees.

What the hell?

In a what’s-wrong-with-this-picture moment, there is a bus parked near our house. It’s painted in New Jersey Transit colors. Maybe this is like those stories I’ve read about migrating birds being blown off-course by storms. But the route marker on the front says “Beverly Hills”. Maybe NJT has a new Weehawken-Beverly Hills route going…

Weird Art

Filed under: — stan @ 7:19 pm

We went to see “My Blue Sky” at The Project in Downtown L.A. today. This was an art installation of sound recordings from various places. Very strange. After that, we went to the Museum of Neon Art to see the “Bumfuzzle” exhibit.

Moldy oldies

Filed under: — stan @ 7:34 pm

We went to see “American Originals: Treasures from the National Archives” today at the Central Library in Downtown L.A. It was an interestingly random collection of stuff. Among the displays they had President Kennedy’s inaugural speech, Benedict Arnold’s letter to George Washington, and the speech that President Nixon would have given if the Apollo 11 astronauts had been stranded on the moon. It was a pretty wide-ranging sampling of documents.

Lions and tigers and bears!

Filed under: — stan @ 9:32 pm

We went to “Merry Member Nights” at the L.A. Zoo this evening. They had the zoo open after hours. We saw some animals, but a lot of them had gone to sleep when the sun went down.

We also walked the Griffith Park Festival of Lights. It was impressive in a weird sort of way. And Lucinda had fun looking at it.
