Legends of La Cienega

The annual Los Angeles Legends of La Cienega is coming up, and this year there looks to be some great panels.

Delicious Designs?

East Meets West?

It's a Mod World, YES PLEASE! Mayer Rus of L.A. Times Magazine (had lunch with him a couple of years ago, he rocks!), Trina Turk, Darren Ransdell, should be a good one.

La Dolce Vita: Wanda Jelmini of Missoni Home is reason enough to attend this one.

L.A. Modernism: Weho's very own John Chase, KCRW's Frances Anderton, and Madison Hilderbrand from Bravo's Million Dollar Listing. Since I am BFF with Chad Rogers, I will stop by and introduce myself to Madi.

MANtique, JaDIE! Waldo, or Wally as I like to call him, Fernandez should prove to be interesting.

Smoke and Mirrors will feature my longtime pal Patrick Hoelck. Patty has some great stuff on the horizon, this is one not to be missed.

West-Side Story?

Einstein: Beyond Cute

Tell Me How to Feel?

This is not some fabulous French flea market find, it is from Restoration Hardware. I am confused, and a little scared. Will Ikea be making a Queen Anne series next?

God Save the Toys

So this week was the Los Angeles premiere of the film "Exit Through the Gift Shop", a documentary about UK stencil/wheat paste artist Banksy. Banksy has made a name for himself with a hidden identity and provocative content. His pieces sell for outrageous dough and there is much speculation that he is not in fact one person, but rather a collaborative of artists hence the reason we never see his face. Hubby was in a group show with Banksy last summer so he attended the premiere to check out the show.

There was another part of the film that focused on a local tool who goes by the name of Mr. Brainwash. He has been annoying the shit out of people with his whacky wheat paste and ugly imagery for the past few years. More on that later.

So the red carpet consisted of celebrities getting their dork on and posing with aerosol cans and pretending to do graffiti on a fake wall and a busted hoo-ride. Does anyone have a giant cane I can use the pull these idiots out of their own stupidity? Good God.

My beautiful Adrien Brody, why? I expected more from you. You're from Queens, so you should know better.

Minnie Driver goes for some street cred by pretending to spray paint a car. Please stop.

Juliette Lewis has been a long time favorite crazypants of mine, so I'll give her a pass.

When you hear the term graffiti you immediately think of Ashlee Simpson and Pete Wentz right? WRONG.

I will say this, little Petey hired hubby to do some work on a FallOut Boy video a couple of years ago, so at least he knows the real deal.

So here is the part of the film that landed on the cutting room floor; hubby's response to Mr. Brainwhack wheat pasting our neighborhood.

Poser.

Sucker.

Find a new hobby.

I leave you with a favorite quote of mine from Abort Magazine in Vancouver regarding hubby's group show including Banksy last summer: "Go for the Joe(X2) and you can take that to the Banksy"!

How To Make It in L.A.

CROOKS & CASTLES: HOW TO MAKE IT IN L.A. from Crooks & Castles on Vimeo.

Crooks & Castles may or may not be in your man's closet, but basically it's an urban clothing line created and run by a bunch of Filipino dudes wearing sunglasses and bandannas who make it rain up in the club. This vimeo popped up on hubby's radar this week due to the short but noteable appearance of his legendary graffiti truck around the 24 second mark. You can catch it between the Roscoe's Chicken and Waffles and Pinks Hot Dogs. That's right.

Happy Easter!

Have a Happy Easter Weekend. I am signing off early on this Good Friday. Enjoy the New Yorker's latest cover.

Trip Down Memory Lane

My freak friend Joanna sent me a link to this ridiculously nostalgic tumblr of awesomeness, I'm Remembering.

If you were born in the seventies or eighties and want to look back on all the toys we played with, food we ate, shit we put in our hair, etc., you must check this blog out. I was completely impressed when I came across Frusen Gladje, the Scandinavian ice cream we enjoyed on the east coast that virtually disappeared. That and Freezy Freakies, the gloves that changed holograms when exposed to cold weather.

Did you have the Little Professor? I did.

If something on I'm Remembering doesn't make you smile, you either had really shitty parents who kept you in a cage or you were raised on Mars.
