I'll Wear Any Color As Long As It's Black

While our trip to LA was, quite literally, a wash in some respects (for instance, all of these pictures are from the same and only nice day we had there); in other ways it was everything a vacation should be. Full of reconnections, missed connections, romance, frustration, frivolous spending, hangovers, jet lag and general good times.

Highlights included:

Everyone I saw (ranging from “never met in real life” to “hadn’t seen in the past 1-11 years” to “hung out three weeks ago”) . . .

† Shopping at Amoeba Music, Vacation Vinyl, Wasteland and Necromance . . .

† Our ridiculously awesome hotel room. . .

† And, of course, getting to hang out with Massimo for the first time in a few months . . .

Everyone from the east coast always complains about LA, but I found it to be quite endearing, even with the relentless rains. It’s possible I might be back sooner rather than later.

    Definitely scope out Wasteland. I had been to the one in SF, but the LA ones were a lot heavier on the designer gear. I visited the one on Melrose and the one in Santa Monica (there’s another in Burbank). The organization of the store is kind of whack BUT like any awesome buy/sell/trade store, there’s tons of awesome shit to be had for suuuper cheap! I’ll compile a better list of stuff and email it to you later. Hope you have better weather than I did (sure you will)! xx

    Thanks! My camera is just a Fujifilm digicam that’s kind of whatevs but I use this set of Photoshop filters called “Alien Skin Exposure” to simulate cross processing and other effects.
