I’m in Los Angeles at the moment and things are very busy and happening. I’m staying with my friends Mike and Elisabeth who live near the ocean in Venice Beach. Their friend James was visiting and they’ve been editing an independent movie that they filmed last year. Last night, we had an outdoor barbeque, went to some super underground improve comedy thing, a midnight showing of Trilogy of Terror with a short talk back featuring actress Karen Black, and then a 3am visit to Rocoe’s Chicken and Waffles offering the best in, well, chicken and waffle combinations.
We’ve been visiting quite a few other strange spots, includnig Randy’s Donuts, a donut stand with a gigantic donut on the roof that can occassionally be seen in movies.
I’m off to San Francisco for a few days tomorrow. I’m going to see a baseball game on Tuesday with Jamie Hunt, who did the paintings for Unwed Sailor’s The Marionette and The Music Box, and my old friend John who went to my high school. Should be exciting times ahead.
In one-sided LP news, both Early Day Miners and The Six Part Seven are being pressed and printed while we speak. Starflyer 59 have completed the audio for their release to be entitled Portuguese Blues that features a slight return to the gritty guitar rock days of old. Mount Eerie will begin working on a one-sided LP in July, tentatively, for a late autumn/early winter 2003 release.
