Here, there & everywhere…Part Uno

So, the last couple weeks have been insane! I’ve been running non-stop! It got kicked off, somethin’ like this…

Our amazing friends Eric and Erin came to visit!  Just because they missed us desperately.  They just can’t bear to go without seeing us for too long.  Seriously, they cried tears of joy when we opened our front door.  Ok, not really!  But sort of!  Ok, not really sort of.  They live in good ole Arizona and one of their favorite bands was playing here in Cali, so they made the drive.  Hey!… Any excuse to hang with good friends right?!?!? 

It was an awesome weekend!  We saw Les Savy Fav on Friday night at the Echoplex.  If you wanna get your face rocked off and get your booty shake on at the same time, I highly recommend them.  It’s like Bloc Party on a steroids and acid cocktail!  They put on a damn good show.  Their rad frontman– Don’t even get me started!

 The next day we checked out The Museum of Jurassic Technology.

I want to meet the person who does the curating and set-up for the exhibits here.  The whole time we were walking through, I kept saying, “I wanna live here!”  The exhibits aren’t your run of the mill type.  They’re hands on and set up in a way I’ve never really seen before.  If you are ever in L.A.- Go here!  It’s super interesting.  One of my favorite exhibits was one that featured the artwork of Hagop Sandaldijian.  This dude takes lint, hair and dust particles and makes them into figures!  Figures that you can only view through a strong magnifying glass.  And he does it all in either the eye of a sewing needle or on the very top of it.  Then, if that’s not enough, he actually paints them using a single strand of hair!  Who does that???  It’s amazing!  You can actually tell what each figure is.  Like, where else in the world would you see a full microscopic bust of Pope John Paul II?!?!?

Only at this museum!  Honestly, this pic doesn’t do it justice.  After going through the exhibits, we went up stairs to their tea parlor, where they serve the most delicious hot tea and cookies— For FREE!  Entrance to the museum is free also, they do however ask for a $5 donation.  Which I really don’t think is a big deal at all (considering all the amazing stuff you get to see).  The people who work there are uber nice to boot!  Can you tell I like this place?  It was very cool!  Did I mention it was cool? 😉

P.s.  Eric and Erin!  Love those mofos!

P.s.s. You can check out Eric’s awesome outdoors blog here!  He knows his ish!

P.s.s.s. Next up is Part Dos.  Oh and I promise to stop “P.s.”-ing.
