  1. Making Plans for Nigel has been in the rotation on a couple of local stations. So I've heard. Wish they'd play "Love will tear us apart". Much cooler.
  2. Just got this email - This sounds like a hoot: Greetings Dear Fiends, We wanted to let all of our Los Angeles locals know about a special screening of the Ramones classic film "Rock andRoll High School". On July 8th at 7:00 pm at the Hollywood Forever cemetery at 6000 Santa Monica Blvd the film will be shown outdoors on the lawn near the Johnny Ramone memorial statue sculpted by Devils Rejects/House of 1000 Corpses makeup FX artist Wayne Toth. There will be special guests in attendance during a brief pre-show ceremony that include but not limited to: Marky Ramone, PJ Soles, Clint
  3. Nouvelle Vague. 80's post punk meets bossa nova lounge voiced by cool French pop girls, covering Dead Kennedys, Joy Division and The Clash. Check out the tracklisting Summer cocktail smooth and enticing. The cover of PIL's "This is not a love song" is particularly beautiful.
  4. She could probably make El Monte sound inviting. Well, El Monte is where James Ellroy's mother was murdered. Look what it did for him. But seriously, I love my town. I'm third generation LA, and fourth generation film biz. There's so much here that very few see, the whole Day of the Locust underbelly I find facinating. West, Bukowski, Ellroy, Chandler, my own crazy family's stories - that's the LA I know. It's a far more interesting view than the boob job/butt floss glitter spin usually applied to this city. You've just got to open your eyes.
  5. Based on last night's observations, even YOU get involved to keep the pot boiling. Good music, too. I thought you were busy observing something else, my dear. Glad you noticed the music tho. Great thought goes into the jukebox selections.
  6. Ah, you went as part of the 431 club? Yes, I was there much later in the evening. I believe the 'official' Broadway party will be on the 20th of this month. I'm so glad you liked Lucha. It's one of my favorite shows and just keeps getting better and better. I was sitting ringside about four seats down from Jack Black, and there is nothing funnier than looking at wrestler ass crack all night. Plus, my two fav burly-q dancers performed - the beautiful androgyne with the hulahoop and the gorgeous geisha who strips to "Anarchy in the UK". So fabulous. I missed the Moody Blues - they were ther
  7. As do I. I have a few piercings, and it's easier to just go and get it over with than stand there and try to explain... I also stopped wearing button fly Levis on planes for the same reason - took me forever to go thru security.
  8. No strictly liquor, although I have sometimes made a meal out of the garnishing tray. My husband is the designer, and while not involved in the day to day operations, certainly tells enough people there how to run the place. My place is Banquette Cafe, 400 S. Main St Los Angeles I serve food, coffee, wine and beer. We have been chosen "Best Wine By the Glass" by the Los Angeles Downtown News. Another reason to be cheerful.
  9. Wow, sorry you didn't like the burger Tana What's all the fuss? In'Out's a good burger for a drive thru, most times better, not worse than the average fast food joint. I like a dble dble with cheese occasionally. Hate their fries. Good shake. If you're driving around and want a burger it's a solid place to go. Try it Atkins style without the bun. Messy but to the point.
  10. Just a heads up to anyone in the LA area - this upcoming week holds many a fun downtown event for your hearts desires... Lucha VaVoom brings its fabulous blend of Mexican wrestlers and G-String Burlesque back to the Mayan for two performances June 29 & 30 at the Mayan Theater http://www.luchavavoom.com/upcoming_shows.html Orpheum Theater is showing the Howard Hughes silent classic "Wings" with the legendary Bob Mitchell accompaning on the mighty Wurlitzer - the last of the great theater organs remaining on Broadway. This Sat. July 2 at 8pm. http://www.latos.org/SilentMoviesLA/mai

    Agreed, but the swoon factor of Liz and Laurence Harvey together as she parades around in Dina Merrill's mink coat for me is worth repeated viewings. "Mama face it- I was the slut of all time!"

    I love "Giant". George Stevens - it's so mythic. One of the great American movies Of All Time. But c'mon, Liz Taylor followed Giant with "Cat on a hot Tin Roof", "Suddenly Last Summer"and "Butterfield Eight' - THREE great performances. And THEN she did "Virginia Wolf". Then came the wonderful and weird stuff - "Taming of the shrew" and "Boom" and "Reflections in a Golden Eye". The one I want to see is "Driver's Seat" where she plays a schizophrenic running around Rome trying to find a man to murder her. Apparently it was never released in the States but it's supposed to be one of her be
  14. Formula One head Bert Eccelstone on Danica Patrick Christ what an irksome mutha. I hope Danica kicks all their asses in the long run. She is a seriously hot driver. Some personal favorites used on a regular basis: Fuck me once; shame on you. Fuck me twice; shame on me. Your problems have become my problems and now they're not. Do you think I was made with a finger? My give a damn's busted. (And a cool song by Jo Dee Messina)
  15. This is exactly how my maternal grandmother made and served it. She used top round, pounded the hell out of it, flour, salt, black pepper and a little nutmeg for dredging. The green beans were cooked with a slice of bacon and she made biscuits as well as the mashed potatoes so you had a little bread to sop up everything. She's been gone 30 years and I still miss her cooking. Last good CFS I had was in a truck stop near Bakersfield served with a couple of over easy eggs. When they're good, they're good, but bad ones are a bellybomb that you carry for days.
  16. I think that Disney has a major interest in controlling the product for marketing to mass audience. They have actively sought and courted Miyazaki to supplement their flagging creative division. Whether this merger creates a more diluted product coming out of Studio Ghibli in the long run, we shall see. But if "Howl" is the direction that it's taking, and Disney is supplying major funding for distribution, then I'm sure they've had a hand in the tone. I don't think Disney gives away all that money for nothing. Here's a series of articles/interviews going back to '96 regarding the Disney/Miyaz

    Billy Squier

    Thank you. I was wondering that myself, but my brain is being overloaded in a wash of headband hair music. Loverboy' 'everybody's working for the weekend' has just joined the chorus. Must adjust my meds and stop looking at this thread. Oh the evils that Billy Squier has wrought!

    Priscilla, my dear Do you have plans for the Motley Crue reunion tour as well? Another sign of the impending apocalypse. Come back, my girl, come back.... (and now for some stupid reason, I have 'rock me tonite" alternating with "girls, girls,girls' stuck in my head - oh the horrors of a hairband hellhole)

    At least not with each other. They'll always have Paris. Wow, she's sleeping with them now too?
  20. The most glorious of filmmakers, Hayao Miyzaki has sold his soul to the devil Disney. His latest film "Howl's Moving Castle" is the most beautifully drawn animated film you will see this year . But with a weak story line, schlocky American voice overs (it features Billy Crystal, whose voice and mannerisms hold the same charm for me as nails on a blackboard) wasting Living Legends Jean Simmons and Lauren Bacall, can you tell I was disappointed? The imagerey is spectacular - set in that Industrial Age Never World of quaint villages and fantastic flying machines for everyone. The wizard How

    Motorcycles

    I used to ride dirt bikes as a teenager - I rode my father's Maico 501 all over the hills north of Los Angeles, but after too many scrapes and bone crushing bruises I stopped riding in the dirt. Street riding had little appeal for me - here there's too much traffic and lack of driver awareness to make even the most cautious rider a perfect moving target. That said, I rode my friend's '74 Norton Commando through the downtown streets the other day, and god was it good. Nothing more glorious than being on a beautiful bike, but even with helmet and leathers that asphalt is just too unforgiving. W
