I turned back into a white girl at dawn

The Wu-Tangxperiment is finally over you guys! I didn't really think anything happened except you know, like, being angrier and stuff, but the weirdest thing happened this morning when I woke up.

Let me preface this by saying that I NEVER fall asleep in clothes. The last time I passed out in clothing that was not pajamas was also the last time I drank whiskey (it makes me tired), on Walker's 21st birthday, almost a year ago. That night alone qualified as a "bender." The sausage fest and I (seriously, am I the only girl you guys know?) had dinner at Yamashiro in the hills and when I say "dinner" I mean there was a bottle of Jameson circulating under the table. After sufficiently upsetting all the other patrons, we headed to Tiny's. Still, to this day, Tiny's is my favorite bar. It's small, filthy as sin and the jukebox is full of Black Sabbath and Slayer. Fuck yeah. To make a long story short(er), seven vodka redbulls later I was hiding from a really hot guy that asked me to do coke in the bathroom with him, chain smoking American Spirits in the photo booth and shrieking at Fitz that I was "too drunk to move." We had all gotten a hotel room somewhere on Highland (I think it was before Franklin?), so we could keep partying without pissing the neighbors off but I was done for and stomped back (easily13 blocks, it's kind of hard to tell because Highland stops having blocks and turns into bullshit right quick) only to pass out on my back (go figure), sequins and all. After about an hour I woke up, promptly called Adam Scott to scream at him for leaving me passed out on my back and thus susceptible to a John Bonham. He said he wanted to get to In-N-Out before they closed. Fair enough, I suppose. GOOD THING I DIDN'T DIE, ADAMSCOTT!

Oh man, I've been in VH1 Storytellers mode recently. Back to the real story...

I woke up in this pair of jeans that read "Apple Bottoms." Weird. I haven't worn anything besides black skinny jeans for probably two years, save for that one pathetic pair of slight bootcut Citizens. I was sweating like nobody's business and realized I was wearing wedge boots adorned with fur. Half my hair was in tiny braids and I found what looked like barbie hair with clips sewn on clipped onto the back of my head. I had these outrageously long acrylic fingernails with some strange design on them, it appeared to be...zebra print? Was I going to fully "turn" if I had another day left to go? Would there be any turning back?

I'm glad to be back from whatever Wu-Tang werewolf shit was going on there. What was the first song I listened to this morning? Lilly White, by Rocky Votolato. Yeah, I'm a total pussy. I could've gotten out of bed and slid around in my socks, Risky Business style to "Number of the Beast," but no. I go for a whiskey drinking sad guy with a guitar. Not as bad a trying to put the moves on a lady to Joanna Newsom. That shit don't work, probably because she SUCKS. Okay, playing the harp is kind of cool but her voice is a cross between an old asian woman and a child. Like if Bjork gargled a bunch of battery acid and turned eight. There are times you can tell she could have a normal, maybe even pretty voice. Why would you intentionally sing like that? It's not cute, there is nothing redeeming. OH FOR FUCK'S SAKE WHY DO PEOPLE THINK THIS SHIT IS COOL?

Back to stuff that I like, this is a video of Rocky playing at the Casbah, with a band. I've seen him with a band once and twice solo. I like the band better.

"Portland is Leaving:"


This is a video of him solo, doing a song that is kind of...solo. "Mixtapes/Cellmates:"


There is another video from the Casbah that you can hear Jenny K. and I yelling in but it is embarrassing as shit so I'm not posting it.


keepin' it real,

1) The hotel was just north of Franklin.

2) You aren't the only girl we know. But at the time, you were the only girl Walker invited who had known him long enough to realize that going to a hotel party with him and his guy friends wouldn't turn into the next Girls Gone Wild video.

3) The Jameson was gone before we even left the hotel.

4) Yamashiro was overpriced and kinda gay (read: the season finale of The L Word took place there).

5) I find it amusing that you and Andy Dick have the same favorite bar. I don't know if you deleted that part of the evening from your memory, but he was there, and not in costume either.

6) The reason I mention that Andy Dick was not in costume is because, though it wasn't October 31st, that was the night that Hollywood decided to celebrate Halloween, since it fell on a Wednesday that year. So, the freaks were out in force (note: the aforementioned presence of Andy Dick).

7) When we left you at the hotel you were brushing your teeth or some such fuckery. Somehow, I don't think John Bonham brushed his teeth before he asphyxiated on his own vomit. On top of which, I believe he was placed on his side when he was put to bed, not his back. Hendrix was on his back, but I think sleeping pills were involved. If anything the closest you came to a death reminiscent of a celebrity's was on the walk back to the hotel; we came dangerously close to meeting a demise similar to Gaudi's, except in our case it was a taxi not a tram.

8) I still don't understand why you called me. I didn't even drive that night, Fitz did.

9) That In-n-Out was amazing.

10) It is a good thing you didn't die.

1) So that makes it about a mile. My bitching is justified.

2) True. I ended up drinking too much emergen-c to regulate my electrolyte levels and sharing a bed with Emmanuel.

3) Not true. You seriously underestimated the capacity of my glorious bevmo flask, I remember hitting that shit in the bathroom at Tiny's.

5-6) I remember him being there, but this is not my Shania story so I didn't feel like namedropping. Mostly because I hate Andy Dick and there is nothing redeeming about him. Not even his last name.

7) Whatever. This is my blog, so I remember things the way I want to and write them as such.

8)Because Fitz didn't pick up his phone.

9-10) Kiss my black ass.
