A New Toy

I just got my new turquoise and white hoop from Vera and I love it!!

Now I must pack because I am off for a short visit to SF after work tommorrow!

An Event I Wish I Missed

I went to an event at the Track 16 Gallery in Santa Monica where the entire show was sponsored by Scion. If it was up to me, I would have left right away, but I wasn't the one driving. (That's LA living.)


The whole urban art movement is huge and Scion is using it to reach its target consumers. I don't want to go into too much detail but it was just graffiti on what looked like paper cut-outs of car parts. I know that many events are corporate sponsored and that the sponsors have helped out artists' careers, but this was just too blatant.  Too commercial.


I was also very unimpressed by the art. I like urban art, but there needed to be more than what was mostly muddy graffiti. I know that there were some masters there but I just couldn't get past Scion being in my face wherever I turned.  I suppose that this was just a GRAFFITI only show and not a general urban art show which would have encompassed more media.


So that's my mini review of that show and I refuse to link to the event directly so if you want to know more about it, you'll have to do an online search.


I just wished that I went to the Create Fixate show instead.

Links!

I have just added some more links on my sidebar. I don't know everyone personally, but I like to visit these places every now and then.


I'll keep ya'll updated on the links when I add them.


Some people have also told me that they weren't aware that they can comment on this site. Well, if you look at the bottom of each post, there is a word that says "comments". A comment box appears when you click on that link.

I welcome comments and try to respond, I just sometimes forget to do so right away.

Procrastination

It all started with Mozilla where I could use the tabbed browsing feature and look at 10, 15 (or 20!) sites at once. Now I have Safari since I've upgraded my computer. Anyways, I really hate admitting this but I am a serious net junkie. The internet is where I always like to go to when I am procrastinating. My desk is a complete disaster and I am looking for anything online just to avoid The Pile.

Blew It

I have been so happy about my acting class lately and it really sucked that I blew my monologue on our last day. I didn't do my homework and tried memorizing my lines a half an hour before I left for class. I have a terrible memory, so of course I forgot my lines when I was up in front of everyone. I could barely act because I was too busy trying to remember what to say.

There was a terrible moment when I froze and stared like a deer at the camera and knew the lines were hiding in a dark corner of my brain. I grabbed my script, but it was too late and all I could feel was frustration.

I feel like I was acing the class and failed the "final". UGH!!

I'm so mad about the whole thing and should have just done a cold reading instead.


I will NOT watch the videotape of myself. I cringe at the thought of it.

Idyllic Memories

It is summertime, it's warm, I'm near the beach, and I miss my SF friends. I've been having sensory flashbacks when I feel or smell something in the air. There is a memory that keeps resurfacing which makes me long for the time I spent with 2 close friends in Indonesia in the the summer of 1999.

I Am Back

At least I think so.

I've been so caught up with looking for work that everything fell by the wayside. Then I found a job and all of my time was taken up trying to do the job right. I even had nightmares!

Anyways, I now work as a personal chef Friday-Sunday. Just 3 days and the pay is good. Yay!

I'll try to post more often as I slowly piece the rest of my life together.
