Tonight: The Flaming Lips !

Sam’s uncle surprised us with tickets to The Flaming Lips for last night’s show at the Grand Ole Opry.  I was a little worried about seeing such an intense show there – as I usually am – because it’s pew seating and generally a pretty stuffy place.  It’s the kind of place you’d love to see Fiona Apple play When The Pawn… from start to finish.  Somehow they managed to make it feel like you were some place else entirely – the giant ball (Zorb??) even made an appearance somehow!

To be honest I was never really into the Flaming Lips.  There are some songs that I like, but I was never much into the psychedelic stuff personally – but LIVE it was a different story.  It was more like performance art.  

I have to admit, the whole hippy LOVE vibe got to me, Sam claims to have even teared up at the end.  :)

We were able to get some amazing shots due to our awesome seats, awesome camera policy, and Sam’s all around photo taking awesomeness.  Made some friends, saw some old ones, all in all, it was quite a good time.

Best of 2010 – San Fransisco Trip

I was cleaning up my phone today and realized I have hundreds of pictures that I’ve done NOTHING with, that have been totally forgotten!  Over the next week or so I’ll do a sort of “Best Of 2010” cell phone pictures.  : )

These were taken in San Fransisco over Christmas.

Ladies and Gentlemen, the Fabulous Diane Lane


Most people have never heard of it, and that is unfortunate!  It received poor reviews at a screening (it was ahead of it’s time) and was sort of forgotten about.  If you were ever wondering what happened between first wave punk and Riot Grrl, this was it.  It’s a 1982 film starring Diane Lane, Laura Dern, 2 sex pistols, an original Clash member, and directed by music producer Lou Adler.  This movie makes me feel alive and super feisty.

I know it’s all about selling individuality, and the irony in everyone following suit – but I can’t help it – it makes me want me to dye my hair and strut around town in my drawers.  Dream I might, but in reality I wouldn’t have the guts to let it all hang out, so here’s an updated and more realistic interpretation.

Speaking of Diane Lane, FUN FACT!  She turned down both Risky Business and Splash to film Streets Of Fire.  (Never heard of it?  Yeah, me either.)  She was however also in The Outsiders, and more importantly Rumblefish,  If you haven’t seen either of these you MUST.

Just look at this cast listing:

Both Rumblefish and The Fabulous Stains are streaming on Netflix right now, btw, so no excuses!
