Melvin, Pt 2

I've told you about my neighbor Melvin before. He generously invited me and Elisa over for dinner a few weeks ago, and I have to say, his house reaches echelons of awesome that were previously thought to be old-wives tales. Tons of pictures after the jump.

Rainy Days

Shot on Thanksgiving. I was taking the train home and this gentleman was determined to have my dinner plans made known. I didn't plan on doing anything with the video, but it captures my mood as of late.

Field Trip: Tavin Reading Series - Little Birds

Last week my friend Steven and I attended a reading at the super-romantic Tavin boutique in Echo Park. It's a beautifully merchandised little nook of a store, and a more than worthy predecessor to the defunct Show Pony boutique.

You Do What You Have To.

I'm trying to think of a catch-phrase for 2010. My friend Thomas and I have been doing this for awhile. "No tricks in '06!" has been my favorite so far. Help me out here. 2010 is jinxed without a catch-phrase. Oh, and rhyming is mandatory.
