i used to want a big family. now im glad the lord loves us and ignores us sometimes most of the time.
not sure what this lady wanted, but today she got eight babies.
thats a team of some sort. field hockey? water polo? olympic handball?
you know the problem with the iphone? for some reason people txt me. today it was things like “rod on the king tonight”
for some reason i didnt understand it was the illinois governor on larry king. taking our calls! oh for the days captain janks calling to ask the guest something about howard stern.
even though i am leaning toward the argument that rod blagojevich is technically not guilty because you can talk about those sorts of things but if you dont do it youre not guilty; but i think he should step down because its sorta like when a girl wants to break up with you.
i took this picture last week but it took me till today to actually see what it was.
this is a billboard for a cable tv special held three months ago.
but whats amazing about it is its on sunset blvd, just west of vine, as people leave the arclight theaters (normal movie ticket price there: $14) or walk one block east of amoeba (the city’s largest record store), they would see that sign. its a very well traveled part of town which is clearly lit at night where tons of people are day and night.
how come you cant sell that space?
people should be fighting for that space yet it waits to get obeyed.
president obama better quit smiling so much and get down to the magic part.
of all the coachella rumors speeding through the tubes of the interwebs, that seems to be the one with the most steam.
because theres never a dull day at the LAT, those of us who are not in the know are waiting patiently for the man, geoff boucher, to release the names of the bands who will perform at the desert festival.
there have been so many coachellas now that the only bands yet to play are the ones that have been in my top five for years: the replacements, the velvet underground, motorhead, dylan, and tom waits.
but bowie would be good, mostly because i have never seen him live before, if you can believe it. the problem is, he always plays super huge anaheim stadium type places annoying folks like nine inch nails, etc.
mr boucher has been covering coachella since the very first one and because goldenvoice and paul tollet and aeg are loyal and good peeps they have annually given geoff (and the Times) the scoop on the lineup.
my spies are telling me that the bands will be named either tonight in the wee hours or tomorrow night in the wee hours.
so that you dont miss the news. may i suggest subscribing to the Pop & Hiss blog, which is the LAT music blog of which mr boucher will be posting the coachella lineup as soon as he is able to do so.
ashley says one of the headliners is gonna be no doubt. but she says that every year.
woke up and thought there would be football of some sort. but alas, president obama has let us down again.
woke up and thought there would be a sunday paper out in my courtyard waiting for me, but alas, my neighbors have let me down again. which is weird because since i tipped my delivery man $20 at christmas hes been delivering 3x as many papers as he should.
instead of considering this a bonanza, apparently the neighbors have decided to look at this as a nuisance and “cleaned” up the courtyard before i could retrieve my weekly love. seriously, who takes a man’s sunday paper?
woke up and thought id go hiking with karisa but apparently she chose to “punish” me for not working out throughout the week. as if i wasnt busy last week with the first black president on monday and tuesday and covering for top of the ticket on friday and dealing with everything throughout the week not to mention clipper girl and her cousin.
not everyone has made vigorous exorcise part of their daily routine, thus im not sure that removing the one healthy thing one does a week is the right way to encourage more. therefore i ate like a pig yesterday: baked doritos, famous amous cookies, kfc, mcdonalds, and even some m&ms at the oil change joint.
