    you see two things in Pasadena 

    raymond ave pasadena float

    1. super dooper really sweet people with seemingly nothing to do
    2. Rose Bowl floats driving down the road

    you forget that those floats arent made overnight.

    you just think that Santa Claus comes and goes, a few nice moms volunteer somewhere

    and poof out comes all these kickass totally complicated floats that look perfect on tv.

    but no, people work on these puppies all year long

    and they have to move them across town.

    the cops dont care.

    they just stop traffic and say take it easy theres float xing going on here.

    and people say oh yeah look at that, a float.

    thats what i said this morning. for like 10 minutes as i was able to be late for work.

    got stuck behind a float, boss, i said

    which is something you dont get to say very often, so i was happy.

    more wind damage around hollywood, silver lake, and pasadena 

    hipster pontiac surrounded with palm fronds

    hipsters rejoice, your classic pontiac is protected by palm fronds

    fallen tree in pasadena's Central Park is a photo opp

    a fallen tree in Pasadena’s Central Park provides a nice photo opp for these two

    4100 club

    the fake wall next to the 4100 Club was blown down pretty easily

    car crash

    trees knocked out power, which meant no stop lights in some areas = car crashes

    tree down on glendower

    the wind also attacked the homes and trees of the 1% which blocked roads (quite elegantly)

    palm fronds in los feliz

    in Los Feliz the palm fronds littered the roads near my favorite mushrooms

    know what rhymes with a sushi place with cute little boats of sushi floating by? 

    fly in my sushi

    hey bro does that look like a super dooper happy and now sleeping fly?

    ok so that isnt the best rhyme but whatevs, it was decent fish and i’ll be back.

    it was 100 degrees today in LA just like what Jackie Johnson promised.

    98 degrees

    i love LA when its hot but heres what i dont like

    i dont like strip malls that have a mini Post Office

    and a mini Postal Store 200 feet away from each other.

    heres why: dudes like me will type in “post office” in google maps and murphys law

    will walk into the Postal Store instead of the Post Office

    thus when i waltz in attempting to buy a stamp to send a letter across town

    i will get charged 75 cents from the store owner trying to make a profit on stamps.

    “yes but i only want a normal stamp,” says i.

    “yep, normal stamp 75,” says he as he unpeels the forever stamp, places it on my envelope

    and pats it down professionally,

    in a manner that says “this pat alone is worth the extra 31 cents.”

    fly in my boat in sushi

    100 degree temps

    overpriced stamps.

    i clearly need some organic beer at a neux veux vegan brewery that has valet.

    mohawk blend, here i come!

    who doesnt love a parade? 

    do dah even hitler who hated everything loved a parade.

    here in LA the weather has been specatular. almost as if it was a great weather convention.

    meaning there is no where better to be this sunday than on colorado blvd a street known for a great parade

    thats right the Doo Dah Parade

    a parody of all the parades that will be shoved down our throats over the next few months.

    here are some of the highlights who marched last year:

    the Men of Leisure Synchronized Nap Team,
    Dead Rose Queens,
    The Spawn of Captain James T. Kirk,
    the Grand Old Hags,
    Amnesty International,
    Wizard Ultrasonic Blind Cleaners,
    Bastard Sons of Lee Marvin,
    BBQ Hibachi & Grill Team,
    Satan Santa,
    Tequila Mockingbird & the Royal Doo Dah Orchestra,
    Macho Dog & Bones,
    The Howdy Krishna’s,
    Hairy Krishnas,
    The Dead Robert Palmer Girls,
    and Claude Rains & the 20-Man Memorial Invisible Man Marching Drill Team

    maybe Pajamas Media will show up?

    it starts at 11:30am and doesnt last all that long so dont blink or be late

    and if you really wanna represent, bring your camera, take pics, and upload them to Buzznet using your buzznet account – its free, its easy, its freeasy.

    admission is free to the parade and it should be another beautiful LA weekend but if you really wanna be punk rock take the subway — the Gold Line stop that you want is
    Memorial Park Station, which will drop you off right near the beginning of the parade.

    doo dah directions + superjux + amera + buzzmachine + ventura county star

    people of Los Angeles, i’m expecting you to help out these nice ladies 

    breakfast club

    Dear Tony,

    I’m headed out to LA (well Pasadena) this weekend for a wedding. Am wondering (if it’s not too much trouble) if you can suggest a fabulous place for two crazysexy east coast girls to go on Friday night.

    Mollie

    I say they should check out J.Lo’s new restaurant, Madre’s, or just cruise Old Town, but I’m sure my readers have much more creative suggestions…
