The weekend was a trip to Hollywood for a movie. They had wardrobe from Bohemian Rhapsody in the lobby.

I took the nephew to the national cemetery to put some flowers on my father's gravesite and to visit the Medal of Honor memorial.

Took him to the Skyspace in Downtown LA. It was super smoky from the fires in Malibu.

He rode the slide

So this was tonight in my driveway after I got home after watching Bohemian Rhapsody, the movie about the band, Queen.

Gotta love autumn in SoCal! It is like summer never ended.

I have decided baseball player, Rich Hill a.k.a Dick Mountain, has the best nickname going right now. It is made funnier to me because it is basically just his name...

Love it, happy friday

It has been a quiet few days for a combination of reasons, but I managed to get out last night with one of my friends to see the Lakers game. It was a fun time. I hadn't seen Lebron James play in person since he was in high school.

It looks like I haven't posted on here in about a month, so it is time to update things. I am sure I have done something interesting but I can't remember what. That means this will be a randomness blog post that follows my old numerical format.

@bookcouple Thanks for the love on my Elton John shirt!

@franie I am not passed over anymore—well not the way I was in my youth—but I spent my adolescence in the most painful silence imaginable. A silence of existence and the deepest rejection, beginning with self-rejection. I’m so sorry, friend. Love the new pic. And the beach. I need to get down there. It’s five minutes from me and it might as well be in another universe for all the time I spend there. You rock with movies. I will never reach such cinematic analysis. Your eye for detail and obvious innate talent for movie appreciation shines through. We can always enjoy the ladies and the Mets together. I can hold my own in those departments. Take care and have a good Friday. 🙂❤️

The weekend was a busy few. I am glad that I got to do exactly what I planned on doing with no hiccups.

Friday started with a trip to OUE Skyapace in downtown L.A. It is at the top of the U.S. Bank Tower, which is the tallest building in town. It is a fun observation deck, but the best part is there...

Awesome. That slide! The sushi looks amazing and your weekend sounds incredibly fun. Sports are becoming less and less important to me, even baseball which is my last serious sports commitment. I haven’t watched a Red Sox game in days and haven’t been truly passionate about them for almost a month. I wish I could’ve seen your uncle enjoying the fight. Getting together for matches and fights is so much fun. And productive? Have you not been following my blog?? 😉😁🖤

Since I played sort of hooky from work today, why not put a bit of blog on here to remind me of what I have been up to.

After work on Thursday and Friday afternoon was movie time. Thursday night was a self date of dinner and a movie. I had one of my pizzas. Then I watched Operation Finale. It about how the Jewish...

@aflalimo I try to keep active in order to keep from being a bit negative. It was really dusty, but I have the equivalent of resting bitch face. How do I intrigue? I would love to hear a female perspective.

New friend?! Details, man! Details! ;)

Today will be a lazy Sunday, so it is tome to update about the last few days...

Thursday night after work I went to see The Happytime Murders. It was not good. It did keep me from doing some more expensive stuff though, so it isn't all bad.

Friday night I went to El Trafico, the local soccer derby between LAFC and the L...

This weekend has been spent largely at the movie theater. On my way over I cruised through the streets of L.A. I always think it is cool see lowriders around town

It was a four film Friday, with two more movies yesterday. The lobby had wardrobes from the film Crazy Rich Asians.

Am I the only person sort of intrigued my the Happy Time

My adventure today was a trip to Hollywood to screen Black Klansman coupled with a Q&A featuring director Spike Lee and members of the cast. The movie was really enjoyable, even it was a tough subject to deal with. I finally liked Adam Driver in a role. The story is wild, but relevant given everything going in the current times.

This sounds intriguing. And you made me laugh several times. Such a feat, right? Lol. Especially the jab at Glendale. Gotta agree with you on that one. I did a double take the first time I saw a sign that said Jon’s. I thought I needed glasses. Or sobriety. 😁
franie:
@aflalimo It was a good day to be out. I may have to start shopping at Jon's because it is too funny.

So earlier I was sitting out in my backyard and thinking a bit about the last weekend.

Friday night was a charity event for my mother's foundation. It was a comedy show with family friendly comedians. It wasn't terrible. It is always weird to do family stuff because I have to make sure to behave.

Saturday morning I had a long overdue talk

Beautiful view. I’m the black sheep of my family. Hard to believe? I know. Behaving takes uneven turns with not visiting. I’ll always be here to cheer the Mets on with you, friend. The struggle is def real and I feel you on it. 🙂

Yesterday I went to a Q&A with Scotty Bowers. He was procurer of sex for actors during the golden age of Hollywood. It was truly something to hear a 95 year old guy talk about having threesomes and "sucking cock" with old time stars. He wrote a book and had a documentary about his life. His is a life fully lived. I hope to be...

Last night was the summer show for Lucha Vavoom in LA. It was a last minute thing for me. The show was strange and magical like usual. Hopefully the weekend has something else fun in store.
