Work has been kind of insane this past week, so I never got a chance to post the pictures from Rekha’s birthday and our trip out there for it to Santa Monica. That situation is finally going to be remedied! But before that, I have to admit that this weekend….was highly unproductive. But it was lovely nonetheless. Yesterday, I spent 8 hours sitting on the couch watching the Twin Peaks Marathon of Twin Peaks Season 1 – god DAMN that show is great. I kept hoping a surprise new teaser would be revealed, but alas, that Cooper one from Friday is the newest. But they did iterate through all the trailers thus far released, including the Deputy Hawk one, the Gordon Cole eating a donut one, the eerie Angelo Badalamenti one….so great. I’m bracing for what Season 3 will actually be – and hoping my expectations can be tempered to just go along for the ride. With David Lynch, you really have to adjust accordingly. And 18 HOURS of David Lynch…even with Mark Frost there with him…could be nuts. I was telling Larry that I kind of wonder if there will be a Drew Barrymore-in-Scream move made…in that one of the major stars from the original series gets killed off. Maybe someone like Audrey or Shelly? Eh, just chill.
Anyway, last night we went out to Cafe Beaujolais in Eagle Rock, our favorite local French restaurant with the attractive waiters who wear black t-shirts. It’s wonderful. Had plenty of wine and man, it just made for a wonderful Saturday night. Get to feeling good, is all I’m saying.
This morning, we finally made it back out to Griffith Park to go running, and that was my first time out for a run in a few weeks. Accordingly, only got in about 5.3 miles. Happily, Larry’s back is feeling good again and he can handle the runs too. Then we watched The Force Awakens and that movie is still the best. Now it’s laundry and listening to Mark Hamill on the Nerdist podcast with Chris Hardwick. Today is chill as fuck and I love it.
Okay, enough rambling – here are pictures!
Jan 7, 2017 – Rekha’s Birthday in Santa Monica
It’s really here – the train to the sea!
Bloomingdales also looks different – that Arclight has to be new
The well-lit path leading you to the ocean
Really can’t believe this is real. It’s awesome.
Looking down Colorado
Wasn’t late enough to get the lights on here
Beautiful sunset though
It was a gorgeous sunset
The clouds looked like ripples in batter
Rekha and her wonderful bookshelf and home
Turn the flash down
Larry has a new friend – this dog was the best
Rekha and Nicki
Love this pic
Mosca & Rekha
We had a lot of pre-game at Rekha’s before heading out
Larry & Gabe, buddies
met up with Rekha’s friends at the Chestnut Club
We are SOO bright – my camera can be a bit schizo about that
Downstairs at the club – here with Mosca
Rekha is so photogenic, even when wasted
Rekha & Nicki – and ME
We bonded with Mosca – she was hilarious to hang with
Man, so freakin’ excited for the return. THE RETURN.
Cooper looking a little haunted here. This was probably filmed just for this particular teaser, but it could be a scene from the show itself – perhaps somewhere in the Black Lodge? Maybe he’s seeing scary Maddy/Laura? MEANWHILE……
It’s so exciting to think about going back into that world again, and you just know that David Lynch is going to make it unsettling and strange, but also dreamy and mysterious. Can’t WAIT. I guess I can wait until Sunday, May 21, but it was kind of exciting thinking about it coming out on April 30. 🙂
In other random things I saw on the Internet, there’s a guy who does transit-based art and I suddenly think I know what I should have been doing with my life, as I absolutely love what he’s got up there on his portfolio: http://pdovak.com/projects/
A cute thing he did was simplify Metro maps around the world into things that look a lot like Mini Metro the game.
Back to work after all those wonderful days off…it’s only fair, but man, it was brutal. I do love that PwC shuts the hell down for that week. I learned today that Sony does the same thing. I would love to shout out why didn’t NBC do that, but I know full well that the TV game doesn’t ever really stop. Summer being a dead zone full of reruns went away what feels like decades ago!
I would LOVE if the new Twin Peaks revival premieres on my wedding date.
Also, this documentary that was made just this past year and premieres this weekend on HBO about the life of Carrie Fisher and Debbie Reynolds? Looks AMAZING. And I imagine my eyes will be filled with tears for the majority of it.
It’s still hard to believe the situation around their deaths.
