Ugh -- last week was STRESSFUL. Without going into sordid details, let's just say there was stuff going on in our lives that would have thrown most people for a serious god-damn loop. And yet we came out the other end, bloodied but unbowed. Hence my lack of blogging, folks -- that, and a weekend which, for the first half, was up to our usual insanely busy standards. The 'Phial played a housewarming party at this gorgeous house on Mt. Washington with an incredible stepped backyard that I woulda killed for (and they're paying less rent than we are -- as Trix says, "location, location, location!"). We slayed, of course, as we always do -- and the party was attended by Friends of Mothers of Notable Actors and at least one Argentinian pop star, which made for an intriguing blend o'folks. Earlier that day, we made a good start on some recording, so expect some actual recorded things to surface in the next month or so, if all goes well.
Sunday was, and always seems to be, Errand Day, where we run around and try to complete all the stuff that most people that don't live in Los Angeles and get to leave work at a reasonable time get done during the week. Somehow we managed and got in some quality hang-out time which, after our week of tizzy, we so desperately needed. The new Doctor Who episode is fantastic, by the way, can I get a "what-what" from my fellow Torrent downloaders? Whoo!
Oh, and LA denizens -- check out the LA Mill cafe on Silver Lake Blvd. (right down from Spaceland!) for some of the best damn food I've ever had in my life. Their version of S'Mores -- with lemon marshmallow creme, lemon grass, fresh kumkwats and delicious chocolate creme -- was the best dessert I've ever eaten (sorry, Nobu New York! You've been served.)
Enjoy yr. cheese sandwich. I'll blog about substantial things later.
