Gary’s Salad

Gary is a new friend. He owns the building that my friends live in in San Pedro. Often times, when I go to see them, Gary is at their place. Melanie usually makes a wonderful meal – her specialty is chicken cutlets – and Gary makes this awesome salad that I will call Holy Amazeballs […]

A Canvas Print of Your Art… Don’t Over Think It

Trip the Light Fantastic With Rooftop Runners

Lisa Waugh Martha Graham and Napoleon Dynamite. That’s how I’d describe the self-choreographed music video for the song “Energize”  by electronic/pop duo, Rooftop Runners. I don’t mean that as a slight. These two brothers move with the grace of ballet dancers (syncopation is captured in slo mo) and then there’s a kind of crumpling puppet […]

Nomadic Drum Circle at NAMM

Lisa Waugh Dude, the invisible drum circle was awesome. Uh, I’m not saying that the Drum Circle didn’t happen the other night at NAMM but I am definitely saying that the drummers were probably somewhere in the gift shop of the Hilton waiting for the guitar solo to end before they came in.
