May 23: Danger & DJ Colette

Evita, Ligan, and Fitz all hit me up to check out a show in LA on a Wednesday night. TYPICALLY I would pass, but I decided to tough it out and go anyway, especially when I heard it was DANGER! (Think of a movie score created by SebastiAN.) Afterwards, we were gonna try to checkout Nero at Supperclub, but ended up at Ecco Lounge for DJ Colette's birthday! I ended up staying the night at Evita's in Culver City and driving straight back into work in Irvine the next morning... Never again. Another random night well worth it!

Danger at the El Rey Theater!

What a sick mask...

So dramatic.


Ecco Lounge for DJ Colette's birthday!

She DJs... She sings...

And she's married to the Rookie of the Year!

May 21: Poolside & Game 5

Layson unexpectedly hit me up on Monday after work to see if I wanted hang at the pool with the Besties and G. The weather and company was too good too resist. Afterwards, we got tofu at Koba, and caught the rest of the last Laker game of the season... Heartbreaking. We should have won games 2 and 4! But it was fun watching it with these knuckleheads. There's always next year too. A nice random Monday.

Gone fishin'.

May 19: Evita's Birthday @ Backstage B&G

I wish that I could say that my night was a blur. But that would require me to have some kind of fuzzy memory. My last memory was walking up to the stage to sing Build Me Up Buttercup. I don't remember singing it, but it looks like there may be some videos on some phones out there. Great... Still, this was a great venue for Evita. It was close to Evita's apartment for some prime prepartying. We got to watch (and cry after) the Laker game. Drinks were pretty cheap. And there was karaoke! Happy birthday Vita Pita!


Mic time.

The Afterparty.

Never fails.

May 18: Lakers vs Thunder (Game 3) x Public School

I love the little drum drop at the 1:18 mark. PEEP IT!

Alright. The Lakers have lost the last 2 games where I've been in attendance. I had a nice 8-10 game streak dating as far back as the turn of the millennium where the Lakers haven't lost when I'm in the building. I had to make sure that I wasn't some kind of curse! Plus, my team needed my support in person. I rallied BMo, Ligan, and Cassey for some additional support. That game was fucking CRAZY! I was pretty stressed, but for some reason, I knew they weren't gonna lose.

Afterwards, we headed out to Public School to see JULIANA!! I haven't seen her since... November 16 2009. (I love having a blog.) She's in town from Taiwan for a wedding and will be in SoCal for a few days. The bar had lots of great beers on tap, and the food smelled delicious too. Another new spot to return to.

Be the difference.

Purp & Gold

The Lakeshow made 41 of 42 free throws? Damn.

I really liked the angle of our seats! Section 329 baby!

One quick pick of the group between quarters.

A thrilling finish, a win, and tacos!

Quick car-barrage before we head out to Public School.

Welcome back shot with Juliana!

Asians multiplying...

That was more like adding...

Miss you Juliana! Hope to see you again before you go.

Of course. El Flamin' Taco for 4th meal.
