This weekend was amazing. Brett and I had many adventures. By the way Brett now has twitter which was very difficult to get her to do thus if you could be so kind as to follow her you can see our ginger adventures together. Follow her HERE
Friday night was first Friday at Machinima. Went had some free sushi, free drinks, and free good conversations as always. Then Brett and I went to the Iam8Bit Gallery opening for the 25 year anniversary. Was all street fighter related exhibit, tons of amazing pieces, and putine food truck out back. You can see more photos HERE also check out my friend Evans works from show HERE
What you dont see in the picture is the my crazy high bright red heels. So when walking out of the galley (keep in mind there is a line of people 2 blocks in waiting to get in) I decide i cant take one more step in these shoes. Im sober btw before you try to go and thing of course the drunk chick in heels falls. No sober just 6in platforms. In silver lake, which is one giant hill. I Fall. In front of everyone at the front door. Skinned my knee and its bleeding bad. And no one laughed! they all gave me a dirty look. I personally found it hilarious.
Back to the car we go. Its about 10. I brought a change of clothes. Because now Brett and I are going to Santa Monica to go dancing. We drive to my friend Guys house to meet up with some people to take a cab and start the fun times dancing of the night. Well we get to the bar, it sucks. Brett and i remember a fun one down the street but no one else wants to leave so we start walking and are going to meet up later. We walk… walk.. and about 30 mins later realize we are walking the wrong way. So i look it up on my phone.. we turn around. says its 5 mins away. well. walking.. walking..walking nope. still not there. OH! because i’m looking at the driving directions. we are 35 mins away… still. We get a cab… and finally. DANCING!!! so we dance. Fun times. Then we leave. cab to my car. Then goto my friend Nicks house in Culver city. Bars close kind of early in LA. its about 1:30-2am now. Nick has the cutest puppy by the way. So we hang out. drink beers. lots. well. like 3 but enough no driving can happen. So we crash on the couch and steal Nicks clothes and make interesting Newsie Boy outfits and danced in the Living room. Good night.
Nicks also an awesome Matte Painter. You should check it out… Thor… Star Wars.. its awesome..
Our super cool outfits above.
Nick, Me, and Brett.
Then last night wondered to a party in Silverlake with my friend Evan.
It was fun but i felt a little out of place. I think I found where i fit in finally in LA and it was interesting to wonder to another section and see how each area is really unique and the peoples shared interests, not matter how much of a niche it is, can be found. Silver lake is ironic mustaches, obscure bands, and very artsy but in an you dont always get that its art kind of way. Not that is bad at all. Its totally not. Thats what someone likes thats awesome. I think just feel like more of a hippie now that i’ve settled in. I think i described it as they are music and art nerds. I’m comic and video game nerds. Although they did have a bitchin Mortal Combat 2 cabinet that worked. and i kicked ass at.
Then I went to my favorite little diner in Echo Park called the Bright Spot and had veggie BLT and vegan potato salad, and called it a night.
Now its Sunday… and its time for True Blood.
