a Packed 24+ hours!
and yes, the lights are back on chez teamgloria towers (thank you to our friends at Southern California Edison) after the mass (or maybe it was just our street) blackout.
(yesterday) silver lake:
*click here to see this sumptuous underwater mermaid-ness from Mr. Reuben Reynoso’s portfolio – isn’t it truly delightful and wondrous?
there are streets in silver lake that look exactly like exterior locations from The Wonder Years (and maybe they were) circa (fictional) 1961.
we felt this was portentous.
maybe this year (or next or the one after, we’re really quite Patient these days), we’ll get a red-light-from-a-studio.
we mean GREEN LIGHT.
someone asked us if we’d take a photograph that denoted – how can we put this – the portent of true love.
but we thought This one hit the spot – we watched these two people Flirt for ages while we sipped our tea and thoughtfully spread (raspberry) jam on freshly buttered baguette – it was most deliciously voyeur-like (in a French 1960s movie director sort of a Chic way, naturellement).
we also spent sometime today planning-our-next-column for Los Angeles I’m Yours (there will be Vinyl and there will be freshly buttered baguette with jam, no doubt – how real-life-inspires, darlings).
apparently (who can keep up?) cassette tapes are making-a-comeback (we only just got the memo about Vinyl).
that Very nice man (and co-owner of Vacation Vinyl), Mr. Mark Thompson, gave us a very kind look when we found This Treasure languishing in the 1-dollar-bin (Thrilled!) – and wouldn’t even take a dollar for it – we really are Raking in the karma right now for reasons we can tell you and those we can’t because we-have-not-got-permission (and it’s awfully fun to keep things Quiet and sort of refined and elegantly sotto voce from time to time).
here’s something we’re NOT sotto voce about – our column (it’s been So Long since we could say those two magic words).
the 2nd one (in hopefully a long and deeply popular and yet somehow still cultish way) came out today at noon.
why, yes, those Are somewhat familiar Jackie O sunglasses, darlings – we do all our own photography too (and thanks to Mr. Reuben Reynoso – our own re-touching as well).
isn’t life just delicious?
we. think. so.
