a very different sort of evening downtown @chocolateandart

darlings

you may recall (if you visit us regularly and we’re Tickled Pink that many of you do – tis Most Kind) that we went to an art show last night

and this evening we went to a Very Different type of art show – and twas glorious – and a stunning combination of sweetness and disaffected Youth and musicians-in-dark-glasses and graffiti-encased-stucco-walls and a taco stand and twinkly lights (we adore twinkly lights) and, we don’t think we’re overstating the case:

the re-emerging forces of Counterculture railing against a decaying world

there we said it.

that’s how it felt.

probably because we were Downtown (very far Downtown – in fact East of Chinatown at what is known as KGB Studios in a complex from 1925 no less – could we Get any hipper, darlings?)

*asidetocamera*

probably not. but who knows.

we even got to walk around the show with the Artist known as Dub Williams (not his real name, of course) and to discuss one’s Impressions with the Artist him/her/combinationOfBoth_Self is such a Rare treat (and could not have happened at the show Last night as sadly most of those collected at Paris Photo are now on the other side of the Veil of Life)

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAwe have to admit we became very Energiz(s)ed by all the Activity and body adornment (are we the only person in Los Angeles who is not Inked? It’s entirely possible……) and painting canvases and drop cloths (note technical term, we adore new vocab) and Inspiration.

it took us back to Camden Town and watching the human/android-like (as in Bladerunner, not the operating system for mobile devices) peacocks outside the Tube Station circa 1988.

something’s starting to emerge.

and we’re here to witness it and report back.

now isn’t That delicious?

        Dearest Miss G
        I feel I must compliment you on your recently much improved and extended use of the aside – a theatrical (and indeed lifestyle) device to which The Dandy himself is most devoted.
        So sad that it has been largely out of fashion since the 1870s.
        Vive la difference, vive les fragrances…
        Yours ever
        The Perfumed Dandy
