(LA) Musings....

You know, I'm being to wish that my hotel room here was actually my bedroom at home. Being in a room like this brings it home even more just how crowded my room back in London is. I love the space, the tv/stereo set-up the en suite bathroom, the lounge area and especially the REALLY comfy king sized bed!

I also love the fact that I'm overlooking a pool and there are palm trees outside my window :)

Guess I'll have to get busy on making that first million....

Anyway I met up with Sean and Andrew from HPLHS this morning who took me round there studio. Saw a load of props from the Call of Cthulhu Silent Movie they filmed last year (have photos too) and am now even more impressed with the film. We discussed various things, they took me out for a very nice Thai lunch and we agreed on a distribution deal for the UK which we'll be tying up when I get back there next week.

This is a good thing and I'm hoping for big things from this deal.

This afternoon was spent with a bit more exploring the local area. This also consisted of me finding a massive Tower Records and becoming slightly poorer. The bulk of the purchases were Berlin CDs, including the new 4Play album which is mostly covers (including a cover of Marilyn Manson's Dope Show which is the next track to play so I'll come back to that...).

Also discovered were The Viper Room is so I will hopefully be heading back that way after dark to see what it's like.

Ok, The Dope Show cover is now playing. Sounds pretty good. Next up are covers of David Bowie (Fashion) and Depeche Mode (Never Let Me Down Again). Talking of Mode I may now have a spare ticket (or two if I don't go) for the second Depeche Mode date at Wembley as a friend who brought them can't make it. I'm already seeing DM with Dee on the first night and again in the summer at Hyde Park so three nights for me might be overkill. So, anyone want two tickets or to join me for it? Let me know and I'll talk to my friend.

So you are in town? meh, the viper room is all right.. though it all depends on if you are into the whole 80's hair metal resurection thing that has been going on in LA for the last 20 years. ;p

Hi! Yeah I'm currently in LA.

The Viper Room was alright but I'm already back in the old hotel ;p

The first band I saw were really good but the second was pretty dire. I'd have liked to have seen the other acts but too much beer and still not being 100% climatised to this time zone on top of a heavy week in Vegas beat me. Plus not knowing anyone wasn't really an incentive...

I'm heading back to the UK on Tuesday morning but if you're free and fancy hooking up it'd be good to put a face to the LJ tag and meet you. I'm busy on Sunday and Monday evenings (Sisters gigs at The House of Blues) but haven't got anything planned for the daylight hours.

Let me know and we can try to arrange things. I'm staying in West Hollywood (Sunset Bvld - about ten minutes walk from The Viper Room and 100 paces from The House of Blues). Only snag is that I don't have any transport.
