the first one was joe armstrong, great guy, so smart, so well spoken
and he turned me on to a woman who is a friend of his girlfriend
and she was so great too but different because unlike joe who grew up in IL
rebecca grew up in Eagle Rock and had all these amazing stories about taking the bus east to Pasadena to volunteer at KROQ in the early 1980s
and then at night take the bus west to Hollywood and Santa Monica
TO DANCE AT THE SAME DAMN CLUBS I WAS DANCING IN.
even though im trying not to be as obsessed with the blog posts at hearinLA.com
because theyre slowing my roll, she talked about all these great pics she had
and she sent me like 9-10 that were fine, but nothing popped
today as we were texting i said now or never do you have any more
and she said i have one where im making out with the singer of INXS
i was all michael hutchence? what? prob one of the sexiest singers of that era
who tragically died young
i said, you dont wanna humble brag?
and she said yeah where is it.
she found it and it was the one above which was soooooo goooooood
i was all yes thats it omg omg
i still cant believe how good it was and our convo and how eagle rock is falling in place.
i was on Twitter allllll day and while talking about movies, the last video store left in LA
vidiots, who is moving to eagle rock, liked something i wrote about film preservation
so i DMed them and said PLEASE BE ON HEAR IN LA AS I AM WRAPPING UP EAGLE ROCK
and they said hows about thursday
so yes it sucks that my pay is being delayed because that is whats supposed to keep me afloat as i do this podcast
but thank the stars above for hooking me up with all these great guests
because thats really what matters right now
the money will come
and every month that MF doesn’t pay me i make another $1k or more in late fees and interest
which is more than what id be making if i was Ubering ppl around LA right now once you deduct gas
had an old pal from chicago email me
said, when you’re ready for that fool to pay, get back at me.
