What does an internationally reknowned artist, singer and musician do the day after selling out the Hollywood Bowl? Why, shop the Amoeba Mezzanine, of course. Brendan Perry (the one in yesterday’s post who looks nothing like my friend Becca) drops by my work and spends a huge amount of time browsing the Criterion DVD section. […]
I slip out of work tonight a bit early and make my way up to the Hollywood Bowl with Llyr to catch Dead Can Dance. We sit down, eat sandwiches, open a bottle of wine and chat through Nouvelle Vague’s breathy, undulating performance. There are three people behind us. One comes from Denver, one from […]
Just wanted to post this cool comment by Daniel Hooper, who enlightens me in a comment about the record chain, Licorice Pizza. Back in the mid-Eighties, when I was listening to KWXL Albuquerque (“KWXL Albuquerqu IS 94 Rock!”)and totally missing everything that was hip and modern about the world of Music, there was this store […]
Recently, I have an epiphany. Raisins, I realize, are not my favorite food. Hot upon the heels of that one I have another: I have too many things. And I’m acting on that epiphany. I drag five garbage bags full of clothing out of my closet. I drop them at the donation site on Santa […]
To be fair. I post twice about cats and give dogs the shaft. So here, for your edification… Dogs Dressed As Bees.
Okay, the River Tam notebook gets old quick, doesn’t it? It’s been fun reading the Firefly message boards, though–all the debate as to whether it’s fake or real or viral or not. I suppose I should have expected the doubters. Anyway, before the blood-spatters and the funny cats I posted about how the new(ish) cd […]
Okay, okay, last post on this whole River Tam Notebook thing, I promise. But after all that, I found yet another page in the notebook. And if this isn’t “Whedonesque” I don’t know what is. I’ll bet anything this was written for Summer’s benefit between takes.
I’m not a member of Whedonesque, the Joss Whedon website (can’t cram any more folks into the stateroom) but I kinda want to address a few of the questions raised on the comments to the post about the River Tam notebook. First off, I’ve been corrected a number of times about Joss’s being on television […]
So do you know who River Tam is? She’s the enigmatic stowaway on the Firefly class starship Serenity, and as trailers seem to promise, she blossoms into full kick-ass mode in the upcoming film of the same name. She’s got a past, as so many enigmatic kick-ass characters do, and that past involves long-term imprisonment […]
Okay, now this is just getting weird. But no less funny.
