Official Leak: Rico, Pat, and I have resolved to catapult ourselves into the hysteria surrounding Barack Obama's inauguration. By any means necessary! Interesting note, Rico's own father Oswaldo Ribeiro himself, became the first black secretary of state in Brazil, and of greater South America! So this mission has special meaning. Stay tuned, right here, to see if we make it out there! History becomes us!
..or something. I caught her tonight and was shocked to see how ill she looked. Either her make-up artist had it out for her or Rachel has made so many enemies in politics/press by her meteoric rise, that the stress is getting to her. She admitted in a recent interview that she sleeps very little. But I think it's really Keith Olberman haunting her in her dreams.
At least on-air for Indie 103.1, who are now focusing solely on the web. Next to old school KJLH, the Shepard Fairey branded station will always stand out to me as one of the best in LA. I urge all of you to support your other, commercial-free independents like KCRW and KXLU. Without our support, classic shows like We Came From Beyond wouldn't still be running 20 years deep! Much love to Mike Nardone, I still hit record on my tape decks from time to time.
Earlier today, had some tea with my old friend Allen Lee, Sr. VP of Corporate Development at Capitol Films, which translates into he deals with lots of $$$. He and I worked together way back in '02 when I was at Lionsgate. There's Allen at Le Pain on Melrose..
Stopped by Dr. Tea's for a big ol' pot of Oolong. If you haven't been, please check it out. It's sacred and honest.
Later linked up with Rico of Afrobots and a few others for a round table. There's Rico and Darrell discussing something..
We decided to get some feedback from Mr. Pure Roker. The magic of ichat..
Not sure what the Coen Bros were attempting here, but clearly they had a lot of leeway following their Oscar win with "No Country For Old Men". "Burn After Reading" had a spectacular ensemble cast, yet everybody from John Malkovich to Brad Pitt simply played a bunch of know-nothings, wandering aimlessly in our nation's capitol. Do not rent, this film is NOT worth your $ or queue space. However, George Clooney did play a womanizer quite well, almost too well Sarah Larson! Sorry Joel and Ethan, "Burn After Reading" should be renamed "Burn After Viewing". This film gets the GAS FACE!
