This is why I live here
7AM -- Wake up. Make a couple calls back East. Look at the schedule of classes for a Yoga place near me. Decide to go to my first Yoga class ever.
8:30AM -- Find the Yoga studio. I see an androgenous tall black person talking n a cell phone carrying a yoga mat into the studio, this must be where I'm going. I take off my shoes and head into the class and find a mat. A chick with an amazing ass sits in front of me. Maybe this isn't going to be so queer. The first thing the teacher says to the whole class is, "SO KENT, THIS IS YOUR FIRST CLASS EVER?" Why yes it is. We chant, we stretch, we do funky poses.
I learned two things, one I'm not as flexible as I imagined. And two, I have poor balance. I stare at the amazing ass and console myself.
10:30AM -- In N Out Drive Thru. I need to wash the health of yoga off of me, so I make a beeline to my favorite burger joint to be first in line at the drive thru. It opens at 10:30 and there are already four cars ahead of me. I order my double double and enjoy.
2PM -- Douglas's home. I puttered around for most of the day writing some things, and making some calls. I stop by Dougie's pad to check my email and to check in about the project. We chat briefly, but he's in full show prep mode for his performance that night. I leave quickly.
4PM -- Rudy's Barbershop. I'm getting a maintenance cut on trim around the edges. My stylist is a punk chick that looks like she could be a suicide girl. I try to make her laugh.
6PM -- My apartment. I get a call from my friend who I’ve been a wee bit flaky with lately. He reinvites me to this Guiness event somewhere in Hollywood. I’m not doing anything, so I throw on a mock turtleneck and head out.
6:30PM – Hollywood and Highland. This is the new center of Hollywood. Where they hold the Oscars and where the Chinese Theater is located. Which means it’s where they are lining up for Star Wars Episode III. The only problem is that they aren’t showing it at the Chinese Theater, but at the Arclight Theater. Read all abut it here. I don’t talk to them right then, because I’ve got to go drink some beer.
It’s practically impossible to get street parking around here after 6PM. So you usually need to pay some exorbinant amount to just park. Well, the gods were smiling and I got an amazing spot on the street.
Dan and I get to the Guiness thing and it’s actually being held on the actual set of Cheers, which has been completely rebuilt in this museum. A little surreal actually. It was some sort of charity event for Lance Armstrong’s LiveStrong foundation. But for $5 bucks you got unlimited Guiness and some decent food.
8:20PM -- Dan and I leave the Guiness event, I had about 5 or 6 of em. And we walk right by the Star Wars line. I couldn’t resist myself so I chatted with them for about 20 minutes. A good group, and very devoted. Huge geeks of course, but we all have our own geeky sides.
We get in his car and get another great street parking spot.
8:50PM – Dan and I arrive at the Improv Olympic for Douglas’s 9PM show. He’s done over 200 performances with his partner Mikey O, and this one was great.
10:30PM – We leave the theater and walk over to the Arclight to watch the midnight show of Kung Fu Hustle. We have a little time to kill so we go to the bar. We see the guy who was the bass player in Ray and Dan sees Forrest Whittaker. I see the guy he’s talking about, but he doesn’t look like Forrest Whitaker. It comes down to the Lazy Eye. Dan saw and the waitress confirmed it. Then Drew Carrey comes in and sits at the bar.
We go and see the flick, it’s amazing.
2AM – My apartment. I go to sleep
