WARM SATURDAY NIGHT FUN


Tonight a bunch of the IN crowd *scoff* from the INDUSTRY made the short journey to North Hollywood/Van Nuys to the home of Jett Blakk for some homemade pizza, sweet treats and a scary movie 'Hatchet.' The pizza and movie were both amazing and watching the creepy/funny movie in the hot tub was even better - some people were even naked - hint, hint: Wolf Hudson!
What a great evening, thanks Jett for everything!!!!

JUST A BIT RUDE


Last night, Monday, at work I encountered some real characters - to put it politely! For those who have never been a server or worked in the food industry, listen up and take not that your server is not a person that is there so you can unload your problems of the day on, nor is your server the kind of person that you can talk down to, knowing that we cannot respond back to you. Yes, sometimes customers believe that just because they are in power of the TIP FACTOR they can talk any kind of shit to their server - TOTALLY WRONG!!!

I will not go into details because by next week, actually by the end of the day, yesterday will be forgotten but I thought I would drop by and let you know about servers and how they should be treated. OH, and if your server is a douche than by all means pull them aside and let the manager know - that is understandable!!!

DEPECHE: LIVE

I managed to record Martin singing 'Somebody' last week at the Hollywood Bowl. Of course no amateur recording would be complete without the obnoxious girl singing in the background - enjoy!!! CLICK on the link above and listen to the recording, it sounds pretty damn good for being recorded with my iPhone soooo many feet away!!!


DAY AT THE JUNCTION


Today my body is a corpse after the 29th Annual Sunset Junction Festival in Silverlake!

I describe the festival as the final hoorah of summer time, after the festival closes you know that school will be back in session in a week and that the weather will slowly start to shift. On Sunday I took Ludovic Canot with his friend Phillipe to the festival, since they are from Paris I thought it would be good for them to see the festival - turns out Ludovic enjoyed his time after he thew back a few beers but Phillipe bailed after the first hour, I felt extremely bad because he left without saying anything and he took a taxi home and he payed for me to get into the festival - I wish he would have let me know! =(

Although we were originally supposed to hang out with Eric, Will Ovalle, Cruz and his friend who was visiting from Paris, we ended up frolicking around with Cruz, his Parisian friend, Kevin Horn and Dennis Sooney. We had a blast seeing Morris Day and the Time and Arrested Development. I saw AD back in 1993 at Lollapalooza when it was a touring act in the 90s! Arrested Development is still as energetic as they were 15 years ago, although their lineup has changed a tad.

Overall the day was filled with many beers and lots of new and old friends - what a blast. I believe Ludovic had a great time too, for me it was nice hanging out with him and also being able to have so much fun with Cruz. Cruz and I are like war buddies - we have been though it all together and has only made us stronger friends - I am so happy that we are friends again! Stay tuned for pictures of the festival, as soon as Dennis and Ludovic send me them I will share!

PROPER INTRODUCTION

Last night I was properly introduced to KoKo Taylor - she is a queen and a legend when it comes to blues music. Check out her official siteits an experience!

KoKo recently died in June of this year, but of course, her music continues to live on. Read her biography on IMDB! Feel her music below - she has a powerful, soulicious voice that evokes such feeling.... I EAT IT UP!!!

A GOOD ONE


Last night I went on a date - at least I think it was a date. I met the guy briefly last Sunday at the Fautline right before the Depeche Mode show at the Hollywood Bowl. Eric and I were on our way out and the guy, James, and his friend were hanging out about ready to leave - funny that I didn't noticed him before. We briefly spoke and exchanged numbers and we were on our way to the show - the show details later... pretty fun but we were pretty drunk!

This week James and I chatted on Wednesday and made plans to hang out on Friday, likely grabbing a drink at The Eagle. I had been invited to a Hollywood party, benefiting ALS, which was sponsored by my good friend Nancy O'Dell and the WWE (yes, the wrestling association). I invited James on Friday afternoon but it seemed as if he had other plans later on in the night. At first I was a bit disappointed but in hinesight it was probably better off that he didn't attend the party with me because of how packed and loud it was - there would have been no way to get to know him and have fun as we did at The Eagle. If you know me then you are aware that Eagle is my stomping ground, the bar is a great place to hangout and just have a beer - and while I had never been there on Friday (at six p.m.) it had enough people there taking advantage of their Friday Happy Hour! I arrived on time and waited for the stud to get there, I think he arrived 20 minutes later than I did and admittedly I thought I was being stood up. I was texting back and forth to my friend Peter Laska that I think I was going to be having a drink by myself - but that wasn't the case. Hanging out with him for a solid two hours, James convinced me to play pool. Okay, this boy doesn't know anything about playing pool. I used to watch Moses play pool a lot in Long Beach so I know the basic rules of the game, but hitting the ball with that oversized stick always intimidated me. To make an already long story a tad bit shorter I picked up the stick and played a solid game of pool with James. James and his friend Paulo argued on the correct way for me to hold the stick but when the game was all said and done I lost, but gained a tremendous amount of experience and humility! I was extremely nervous playing pool in front of a bar full of people that I felt were all glaring at me, watching and waiting for me to either hit the ball in the corner pocket or to miss the ball and humiliate myself - I think the latter happened more to be honest. After the first few whacks I became more comfortable with the pool table and found myself having fun, actually enjoying the game and not worrying about what other people were thinking. James was a stud date and a stud teacher.

After the game we all played a few games of The Simpsons pinball game and then decided to go hunt for a LA WEEKLY - we would've found it sooner but he didn't take my advice on where to pick one up - no worries, it was more time to hang with him
and get to know who he is. So far we have a lot in common, especially music!

I hope there is a second date.... gym time! Talk later.... xoxoxo

JUST A THOUGHT

Thinks that sometimes going against the grain is better than the other way....

MUSIC MAKES THE PEOPLE, COME TOGETHER

Last night while driving to COCKTAILS WITH THE STARS I discovered that Erik Rhodes also loves Nine Inch Nails as well as Depeche Mode and many other bands that I am interested in. Amazing that now I know Fran├žois Sagat and Damien Crosse also share my same interests in music howevernone of these fuckers live in my neighborhood! Erik Rhodes is a cool cat - the guy has great taste in music, loves to party and is str8 up - no bullshit. If you have a chance please read his blog, he hasn't updated it in a few months but nevertheless it's pretty engaging and heartfelt!

Francesco D'Macho seems to really like the remix of the song 'Oh Well' by Depeche Mode so the song below is dedicated to him... enjoy!!!

TIME TRAVELING!!!

ALAN IS NOT COMING BACK... PERIOD!!!

SERIOUS AND SWEET



WHAT A DRAG!!!

Last night at Micky's was fabulous. It was the first time in six years I did drag and it was so great to hangout with the bartenders/staff in a fun environment - in drag at that!
I have to give it up to Mayham and Morgan for getting me in drag and looking fabulous. At the end of the night I didn't want to take off my makeup - I kept looking in the mirror and snapping pictures of myself - yes, I was fabulous. It isn't too often that a *butch* boy like me completely shaves my face and puts on a drag show. If you can't tell I did Cyndi Lauper and sang 'I Drove All Night.' I didn't bring my camera into the show but a lot of people took pictures - stay tuned!!!!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY JETT


Last night I attended Jett Blakk's birthday party in Van Nuys at his beautiful estate that has a complete horror movie theme to it. From masks to vintage posters the house was amazing - oh, did I mention he had two pinball machines? Yes, The Simpsons pinball machine and Gilligans Island - although I was disappointed that he didnt have the The Twilight Zone pinball machine!!! I got out of work WAY TOO LATE - so by the time I got to the party it was winding down a bit but I did get a chance to speak with a lot of people from the industry and meet some new people. Lucky Daniels and Dominik Rider were serving up food and drinks while Shane Risk did a 30 minute melodic guitar concert with some really great songs. Overall the party was amazing because everyone there I actually LOVE and I didn't have to be fake - all smiles were genuine! One of the high lights of the party was relaxing in his hot tub outside while watching the classic movie Faster Pussycat! Kill Kill!

Thai Ty


Thinking about Ty - much love your way bubba!!!!
