I am a Los Angeles-based twentysomething. I have a profession, and I have a secret life in music, and this blog isn't about any of that. I like Blogger because I can't read what you're thinking.

Friday, May 20   >>


Just 3 hours ago, Brian Wilson performed a free show at the house he grew up in for a ceremony dedicated to the legacy of the Beach Boys. It was only 20 minutes from here (the event was in Hawthorne!), and tons of people were in attendance.

Except I.


It is starting to get extremely hot here in Southern California -- you know that summer is near when the A/C is scheduled for 73F exactly at noon. Man, it is HOT.

This is the first weekend in a long time that I will be at home.

This is good because I have lots of work to complete. Plus, I need to wind down from finals; I'm still not done, I have 3 more finals coming up.

Being the music major that I am, I had my final jury today (that just means "a final that requires one to present their musicianship in front of a music board panel"). It was very successful, and I got kudos that I thought I'd never get. I'm not going to toot my horn, so let me just leave it at "I finally got the respect I so desired since last August."

Britney and Kevin.

There, I mentioned it. UPN: Lowering the bar, one stupid move at a time.

Have a safe weekend -- you might need the sunscreen! Note that I strongly advocate nude suntanning.

To my helicopter I go!
