hey, was in LA over the weekend. drank for three straight days. here's where we went

Jumbos Clown Room
Red Lion Biergarten
Phillipes French Dip
Some "Tiki" Bar that had no kitsch appeal but the best rum drinks, i cannot remember the name. completely non-descript building
Walked around Chinatown, i think (anyway it was around Phillipes). there was an open air market there, ended up having good Margaritas
Bought Jamesons at a CVS which cannot be done in Ohio

had a great time.

Adam, if you're still looking for a house, a pretty nice one popped up on LA.Curbed.com (look for baby blue bungalow). Just north of York near Ave 49.

Can anyone here show me an out of town day/overnight trip that is outside of all of the obvious Joshua Tree/San Diego/Santa Barbara - type places? Would prefer somewhere chill as I have been working flat out these last few months. We used to go up to Idyllwild and loved it up there, looking for something new. Camping is not really our thing but out of the way places are fine.

Any go-to places for tickets for big shows that do not charge Ticketmaster-size fees?

downtown Artwalk devolving into a cops vs Occupy L.A. near-riot right now at 5th and Spring, with Occupy deciding to step in after past Artwalks where people were busted for writing on the sidewalks in chalk. Which is stupid but this feels like an RIP artwalk event.

pics and footage are p insane

i'm stuck in my office building, everything is happening right out the front door.

occupy l.a. needs to reassess its priorities w/r/t what it wastes time protesting.

omar little, Friday, 13 July 2012 06:23 (six years ago) Permalink

they're doing pushups in front of the cops

puff puff post (uh oh I'm having a fantasy), Friday, 13 July 2012 06:30 (six years ago) Permalink

they're just working out

puff puff post (uh oh I'm having a fantasy), Friday, 13 July 2012 06:30 (six years ago) Permalink

btw I was driving on like the 10W around like 4:45, and traffic on the 10E was stopped because 3 cup cars had blocked traffic. about 30 ft in front of the cop cars was an unmarked white van that was stopped. The cop cars had their doors open and like 5-6 cops were standing behind the doors like a barricade, all of them w/ their gun drawn, it was a p crazy thing for me to pass, I've seen some police shit but like, never a line of cops w/ guns out

my decidedly less exciting going-out-in-LA report tonight: there was an electrical outage near the crazy five-way intersection at sunset/hollywood/hillhurst/virgil earlier. i was gonna meet up with friends at el chavo but the power was out and they were only serving beer and shots because the freezer wasn't working (so no ice). power's back on now but the intersection's traffic lights are still just blinking red so it's a bit of a free-for-all around there atm

i can't believe those Occupy dorks protested over chalk. They make it tough to take them seriously.

if you're anywhere near sherman oaks, freakbeat records is having a sale.

Hey, we're nine years old! It's hard to believe and we couldn't have done it without the support of all our great customers. As is tradition, we'll be having a huge anniversary sale beginning this Thursday, July 12th at 11am, and ending on Monday, July 16th at 8pm. Everything in the store, new and used, will be 20% to 50% off. Additionally, we will have a roomful of LPs, CDs and DVDs for just a quarter each. We hope to see you all here. Thanks again for all your support!

Did I link this already? I guess it's the less shitty side of gentrification, even though there is something a little smug about it. It looks cool though:

Damn, I missed a Mark Burgess solo set? I need to pay more attention here. (Caught him a number of times that way over the years, always been good.)

haha yes, I thought that was funny. Mark Burgess! In my neighborhood! Though I guess he has lived in LA for some time? Maybe even as long as Pot Noodle Goth Peter Baynham
