Back to the Mall

Back to living in the mall, not so great.
Being on set, pretty great.
100% humidity, and thundershowers,
feels like summer.
Shooting in a hot, skanky apartment
lit by flashlights,
feels like indie film making.

Orchid Killer . . .

until now.
This is the first orchid I've kept alive for longer than a few weeks.
Clearly, labels are meant to be discarded.
 Orchid killer . . . no longer.

Picked up my camera while waiting for something I needed for work
Tried to temper my frustration during a LONG wait.
Found solace in picture taking.
Found joy in filling the wait,
and focusing on what was, instead of what wasn't.

The perks of being in the edit room,
discovering new music.
Loving Sylvan Esso.
From a recent review on NPR:
Sylvan Esso's debut isn't just folk songs with electronics replacing stringed instruments. Instead, it uses the loops, builds and programmed beats of dance music to warp and reframe old-school melodies. You may even recognize a couple, like the spectral fragment of Tommy James and the Shondells in the song "Coffee." Unlike much electronic music, the tempos are generally slow and the arrangements spacious, so Meath's voice has plenty of room to maneuver.

Something is happening in Koreatown.
The transformation is more urban and international than the hipster gentrification in Los Feliz and Silverlake.
I recently had dinner at a new boutique hotel
whose inspired design aesthic is a surprising pop of trendiness 
in a neighbor whose identity is rapidly morphing.
The meal at POT, named for the ubiqutous Korean dish,
was very good.  Unfortunatley the atmosphere at 9pm on a Saturday night
was club-like, the music so loud conversation was comical.
Thankfully the pulsing beat was pleasing
and left me with a desire to go out dancing, instead of a headache.

First Day of Summer
I wanted to bring a peach pie.
Woke up early to buy butter and mix the dough.
While it chilled I went to yoga, then bought peaches at the
Silverlake farmers market.
Sipped a green ice tea, and ate from my favorite 
Korean stand.
Unforeseen traffic due to a boulevard closing
for a nondescript parade
threw a wrench in my carefully planned afternoon.
A normal ten minute ride took fifty.
Had to drive to the party with a hot pie on the passenger seat.
Happy Summer.

Three Years





Perfect movie to watch on Father's Day.
Immediately drawn into this quiet, black and white character piece.
Funny, moving and honest.

Compelling psychological thriller by Kem Nunn.
Chock full of flawed characters, and astute behaviorial observations.

Seriously, I'm thrilled it's Friday.
A respite is in sight.
A much needed pause to catch up
on sleep, socializing, and all the work
that isn't getting done due to being in production.
Slightly past the half way point.
Soon I will turn a bend and see light at the end of the proverbial tunnel.
