GGD @ The Greek

GGD = Goo Goo Dolls.
Johnny (and Robby) and I have been friends since "Jed".
If you don't know what "Jed" is, that's probably because it was a long time ago.

I like the ink and paper.
I love the context you're in.
the heaven sent expressions and
random turns of the knob.

Spirits are weakening
as the years go by
Untouched, untampered -
Trophies of the past now repel.

Liquor was quicker and
drugs were readily round:
Uppers. Downers. Helpers.
Names of science. When all else fails.

Hangin' out with Rosie Ledet

Rosie Ledet came by Harvelle's last night and shook everyone's hidden cajun loose. Those in attendance danced and flailed in celebration of another funky friday. Rosie and her band kicked ass. One of Rosie's most popular songs is titled "You Can Eat My Poussiere". (video below - live from harvelle's)

The Floor 26 : Awkward Facial Expressions

The Floor is a one of a kind nightclub experience produced once a month by Carolina Cerisola and Sascha Escandon, takes place at King-King in Hollywood and was recently voted the #1 thing to do after hours in L.A. by 944 magazine. (pg 38)

It was a great night. Take a look at my pics. I'm much more comfortable behind the camera, So I use posing as a chance to work on my awkward smile and /or facial expression. Some times it's not enough, sometimes I overshoot it and look psychotic. These pics run the gamut.

Pics of me are usually taken by Dorthea or Mallory (thank you both). Sometimes someone I'm taking a photo of will grab the camera and turn it on me.
Gabriella & me
the silent Annalisa
I love my Mallory
that's Vakisha!
club producer Carolina and director Michael Gracey
the very sweet aerialist Mariel A. Lamode
ahhhh... salsera Charlene!

Thanks 1000% to Sascha and Carolina, Walter Davis, Mario and the King King staff esp. Maus, Annuka and Sal) and all the dancers, musicians and revelers who were there.

it's been so long since
her hair caught
in my mouth
from spinning.

since I deeply inhaled
her perfumed powder.

way too long since
she wore something
for the first time
for me

too long since that eye-to-eye smile,
the anticipatory glances,
the heated nerve endings,
seen her perspire-
under a strobe light...
not alone.

The slow thaw
is no fancy footwork.
It's jumble is tough shit and
too tense to rocket.
Crawl across the stained bellies
of our mothers.
