The names of 75 different bands are represented in this photo. Can you find them all?
Example: The guy crushing the pumpkins with the sledgehammer represents "Smashing Pumpkins"
A few people at my work and I got together on this and I think we found them all. except for a few.... what the hell does the yellow man under the shop sign represent? or the lesbian couple kissing or the 3 logans run looking chicks running from the Rolling Stones?
I thought I would get my Jeep back today but of course it's not going to be ready until Tuesday at the latest. Everyone at work keeps asking me about it, I can't wait to get it back so I can just say "it's out in the parking lot - check it!". I'd like to get that 'Sirius' radio but now i'm thinking ... what if it gets stolen? I'll just stick with my ipod hook up.
I found a 1 bedroom apartment in a cute 20's building in Long Beach. It's a little more expensive then my small studio but this has an actual bedroom, living room, walk in closet, good sized kitchen with space for a table and chairs.
It's upstairs and no hardwood floors like I wanted but It's still cool. It smells like the neighbor has a 'smelly cat' so I don't know if the smell will linger over into my place or what. I say 'my place' as if I got it already....The building has about 12 units and the top units share a stairwell that links into 2 apartments each.
Now to sign the papers and find some people to help me move in ..... maybe January 1st?
I'm going to take another look at the area this weekend. The only bad thing is.... PARKING. My old place was in the middle of these million dollar houses in a very upscale neighborhood so parking was never an issue, it was still street parking but everyone else seemed to have a garage included with the million dollar home. The new place is in a nice neighborhood about 5 blocks away on the same street except it has more apartment buildings and maybe only 1 or 2 'million dollar' homes in the area. So street parking is going to suck, I know.
The place to be tomorrow night is SPACELAND in Silverlake. I haven't been out in about a month or so to see any bands. I'm excited that not one, not two but THREE of my favorite local bands are playing together. The Vacation, Sons and Lovers and The Willowz whom I haven't seen in about a year (it seems).
I'm not going to say anything like "come!, you can't miss this" or "be there or you suck" because there are so many times when I say I'm going to go and end up not going. Do what you want. You may not feel like going out on Saturday night. You may just feel like staying home watching tv and eating sunflower seeds and popcicles, and that's ok.
SATURDAY - DECEMBER 17th - THE VACATION, SONS AND LOVERS, THE WILLOWZ AT SPACELAND.
