It’s called a strawberry moon, honey. And it’s bottom-right up there and tonight.

May today begin the weekend for all of us. 


The fine people over at Dangerous Minds let loose a lovely and previously-unpublished Kathleen Hanna interview from the Bikini Kill years. We thought so, too.

Downtown Los Angeles
Theatres are curious places, magician’s trick-boxes where the golden memories of dramatic triumphs linger like nostalgic ghosts, and where the unexplainable, the fantastic, the tragic, the comic and the absurd are routine occurrences on and off the stage. Murders, mayhem, politcal intrigue, lucrative business, secret assignations, and of course, dinner. — E.A. Bucchianeri
If you haven’t yet made it to The Theatre, well, tomorrow at 10am sure would be a good day to try devising a plan or two (the magic word’s Comedy for #2).

Downtown Los Angeles 
In opposition to Anita Bryant’s “Save Our Children” campaign — the first major organized opposition to the gay rights movement. 
This weekend at Ace DTLA we’re taking a more positive bend. It’s the first in a series of Pride parties along with JD Samson to celebrate everyone just as they want to be. While we won’t be throwing pies, we definitely will be making our own pie in the sky right here on earth.

Mr. X here talking about the meaning of self, tattooing, life and fatherhood. That minimal piano music you hear in the background is by Russ Chimes. Alex Nicholson makes the tattoos of Mr. X slowly melt into his skin throughout the film.  

Tattooing has been in important part of human cultures for over 5000 years. From the aristocracy in England to sea-farers the world over to indigenous peoples on most every continent, it’s been a way to distinguish and express ourselves. It’s nice to hear such a soft and connected voice speaking about how meaningful it is to commit to a piece of art for one’s life. Tattoos are the only artform that change with a person throughout their life, slowly blurring and melding with the skin.     

"I like the black ink in the skin. ‘Cos it’s not really black — it’s this funny bluish stuff. It’s India ink — it’s basically carbon. Which is what we’re made of."
