rose bowl me over [Jan. 4th, 2006|12:13 pm]
On the drive to work this morning, must have seen 200 people wearing University of Texas shirts. Asked Michelle at work and she said UT is playing USC in the Rose Bowl. Ohhhhh.

And on the corner of Highland and Sunset, there was a couple dressed in formal wear ballroom dancing to a boombox. Really well, I might add. Wish I could have heard the music, but that is a busy, noisy intersection (Hollywood High School is there). Think they were unconsciously practicing while waiting for the bus. With big smiles on their faces. Made me smile. Of course, a block later at the next intersection, there was a mexican girl full-on bawling, big heaving sobs, which made me cry a little.

I now know about the The Rose Bowl parade (which was uncharistically rained out on Monday). In Novemeber, as I was driving through Burbank, I asked Bon why were all these nice white bleechers set up on the side of roads? They start setting up miles and miles of bleachers that early. I had no idea it was so big. Never underestimate the power of the sports-dollar.

Dante and I are dorking out on the couch looking at livejournal and myspace too much. Eating popcorn and drinking Tres Generaciones tequila. Just watch The Tick vs. Arthur's Bank Account. Frightening how similar Todd and the Tick are.

Drove to the Rite Aid at Hollywood/Vermont this am to get prescriptions for sickie Todd. There were dozens of people dressed up like Santa strolling purposefully about. Nice one.

Actually had the haus to myself for several hours in a row yesterday...lovely. Took Andrew James Jones prints to RVCA Thurs for the show in San Diego. RVCA is having an Xmess party in SD on the 21st. Elana (from Austin) is having a white elephant party tomorrow.

Got to see Depeche Mode at the Staples center recently. Haven't been to a large arena show like that in years. it was joyous to see THAT many people out for a non-sporting event. Had great seats, the show was wonderful although they didn't play enough of the old stuff that makes my cold lil' heart sing with joy. So funny that during the slow songs, people held up their cell phones instead of lighters. Had backstage passes...didn't meet any of the guys but stood near them a few times. They were being mobbed and I didn't want to be one of the mob-ees. Gore was wearing a ridiculously wonderful winter cap shaped like a mohawk. He has nice teeth.

Chatted with Daniel Miller for quite a bit...yes THE Daniel Miller of The Normal (sings Warm Leatherette and T.V.O.D) and the founder of Mute Records. When i start to think of all the Mute Records related bands, it surprises me I wasn't overwhelmed talking to him. (Einstürzende Neubauten, Depeche Mode, Butthole Surfers, Erasure, Moby, Miss Kittin, Nitzer Ebb, Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds, The Residents, Sonic Youth, Wire, Add N to (X), and dozens of others.)

Working currently at Mutato. Am working on a pilot for the LOGO network in January. Hopefully, will be able to go to Raleigh early next year to get the rest of my stuff. Xmess in Hollywood...wish I could go see Mom.

Working mad hours on a very funny feature called Out at the Wedding. it's not a lesbian movie, per se, although the director and 2 main producers are lesbian per se. All 3 have done lots of movies and they are Celesbians. haha. The lovely Mink Stole is in it - she is a doll and I'm honored to be on set with her. The lovely Mink Stole chastised me for not voting. The lovely Mink Stole didn't realize that I organized 2 weddings (1 Jewish) and a funeral ssupposedly in the 1980's that were all shot on voting day. Oh did i forget to mention that I'm too tired to give a fuck about Arnold "How about a hummer" Swartzenegger? And I'm proud to spell his name incorrectly.

These are tumultuous times in the life o' JB indeedy. I'm looking out of the window at a the lighted hills - it's too foggy to see Griffith Observatory. Went to work at Mutato today. Off from ALL jobs tomorrow and the shoot starts again on Sunday, six more days. The couch is beckoning...

Saw DEVO play Sunday night and then M and I had 3 glorious days at a resort spa in San Diego. The ocean was calming, the sand was warm, the massages were relaxing, the food was delicious.

Sometimes I do things in the worst possible order, sometimes my sense of timing is fucked. I one of those "sometimes" recently and paid dearly for it. THINK next time, it'll help.

We've been hiking up to Dante's view above Griffith Observatory. it is quite a trek up, but the 360 degree view of downtown, Beverly Hills, Santa Monica, the Pacific, the Hollywood sign, Burbank, Glendale and the rest of Los Angeles is breathtaking, especially at Sunset.

Work at Mutato has been busy, especially since I took off Mon-Wed. Next week, I'm only working there on Monday and then will work with Todd for 2 weeks on a feature-length lesbian love story. The money is good, the experience is better.

Need to RSVP for Chris and Erin's weeding. Mad bummed that I can't go.

Malaria [Sep. 24th, 2005|09:54 am]
I was singing Chicks on Speed "Kaltes Klares Wassar" the other day and Bon asked if I'd ever heard the original. What? What original? By an all-female band from Berlin circa early 1980's - Malaria. Ah, Gudrun Gut.

Stef - check the site: http://www.m-enterprise.de/malaria.html. You'll surely love the music as much as I.

Got an email from Staffan this week telling me how he contracted Malaria in Nigeria. Malaria, the disease, not the band. He probably likes Malaria, the band, not the disease, though. Have to ask him what he knows of them. He's going to send the pictures that he and I shot at Survival Research Labratories. Can't wait!

I'm finally California legal. Auto is registered and has CA plates. Driver's licence is in the mail. Waco and I just returned from a 45 minute walk. Court tomorrow - got a ticket for not having front license plate. Beverly Hills cops can fuck the fuck off. My upstairs neighbor just bought a new bed and is giving me his old one. Yeah for the rich gays and me.

Finally feel like my luck (for lack of a better term) is on the upswing.

tediousness [Sep. 15th, 2005|05:34 pm]
Just ended another day at Mutato....it's been a very productive and therefore good day.

"Hi, I'm Carmen Electra. HI, I'm Carmen Electra. Hi, I'M Carmen Electra. Hi, I'm CARMEN Electra. Hi, I'm Carmen ELECTRA."

Heard one of these 4 versions about a hundred times today. It's some commercial The Boys are working on. Must say it isn't nearly as painful as listening to parts of "Rugrats, All Grown Up" dozens of times in a row. Shudder.

Now I'm about to make the tedious drive down Sunset Blvd. Home. Dante is leaving for NYC on Sat and Todd is working in VA for a few more weeks. I'll have the haus to myself for a week. Waco Dog will be my sweet yet irritating companion.

Nancy from raleigh and I've been talking via myspace, reconnections are grand.

Dragon Diva, where are you? Please call!
