JUNE 2019!

JUNE 2019! (Tempus fugit!)

62320427_2882274575132423_7391254218058760192_o

Mount Shasta in California

JUNE is the sixth month of the year in the Julian and Gregorian calendars,
is nаmеd аftеr thе Rоmаn gоddеѕѕ Junо, thе wife оf Juріtеr,
and is the second of four months to have a length of 30 days.
NOTE: We are still writing (and taking our sweet time, too) the Las Vegas, Nevada and Ashland, Oregon Road Trip Blog Posts, but we haven’t posted anything this month, so here’s a quickie for June!
I love to sing-a
About the moon-a and the June-a and the spring-a,
I love to sing-a,
About a sky of blue-a, or a tea for two-a,
Anything-a with a swing-a to an “I love you-a, “
I love to, I love to sing!
Give me a song-a
About a son-a gun that went and done her wrong-a.
But keep it clean-a,
With a cottage small-a by a waterfall-a,
Any sob-a that will throb-a to a bluebird’s call-a,
I love, I love to sing!
I was born a singin’ fool-a,
Lah-de-dah!
Ol’ Major Bowes is gonna spot me,
Got through Yale with boula-boula,
Lah-de-dah!
Old microphone’s got me!
I love to sing-a,
I love to wake up with the south-a in my mouth-a,
And wave a flag-a,
With a cheer for Uncle Sammy and another for my mammy,
I love to sing!

   – “I Love To Singa” by Cab Calloway

 

The weather during JUNE in the USA is mild
and days have the longest daylight hours.

 

Flag Day! was June 14th,
Father’s Day! was Sunday June 16th…

HAPPY JUNETEENTH! Today is June 19th!

Black and red lacquer design (is that traditional?) with lots of cool gold accents. There is a long bar area with a cool aquarium attached to the large dining room. Table and booth seating is available. For the Dim Sum Brunch there was a steam cart circulating and a big menu with lots of other choices available for “made to order” plates.

The spicy chicken wings were our favorite thing, and the soup dumplings were nice and juicy! We ordered a lot of food, tried tastes of many dishes, and it was good, but not great. So, if you don’t want to make a trip to Chinatown or Alhambra for serious foodie Dim Sum, this is an option in the San Fernando Valley.

The Battle of Puebla during the Second French intervention in Mexico (the French-Mexican War 1861-1867), took place on May 5th, 1862, near Puebla City, Mexico. The outnumbered Mexican Army of Benito Juárez defeated the invading French forces of Napoleon III. France controlled Mexico until 1867, until Mexican troops overthrew the government. The Mexican victory at Puebla is celebrated every year on the fifth of May.

Ticket to Lebowski Fest 2019 at the Wiltern Theatre in Hollywood!

LebowskiFest Time!
At the Wiltern in L.A.
With Jeff Bridges too!

Lebowski Fest 2019
with Jeff Bridges and The Abiders!
and Trainwreck featuring Kyle Gass
and a 35mm screening of “The Big Lebowski”

We’ve always wanted to go to LEBOWSKI FEST! So when tickets went on pre-sale in February, we grabbed a seat in the front section at The Wiltern for $50+fees and made plans to attend in April. We didn’t know when we bought the ticket that it was also the first night of Passover (a Jewish ritual holiday). “Shomer Shabbos” does not apply here.

 

We drove over the hill into Hollywood and then south on Vine Street to Wilshire Blvd (in Koreatown, not quite Downtown LA). Hollywood construction is OUT OF CONTROL! Everything has changed. It’s not even recognizable and so much traffic.

We made our way to the theatre and drove around for a bit until we found FREE street parking across from the Starbuck’s. And we got an iced mocha with whipped cream and walked around the park and adjacent neighborhood until we were ready to stand in line.

Welcome to the Wiltern Theatre at Wilshire Blvd and Western Ave in Hollywood!

Lined Up On Wilshire Blvd – “The Waiting is the Hardest Part”

The Wiltern Theatre in Hollywood (actually now it’s Koreatown)

Built in 1931, the Pellissier Building and Wiltern Theatre is a twelve story, 155 foot Art Deco landmark, an example of French Zig-Zag Moderne styling with blue-green glazed architectural terra-cotta tile, named after the family that owned the land it was built on.

The Wiltern Theatre and the Pellissier Building are on the National Register of Historic Places and are City of Los Angeles Historic-Cultural Monuments.

Joined the line on Wilshire Blvd, and waited on the sidewalk for the doors to open with a few hundred other “The Big Lebowski” fans. Some folks came in character costumes too!

AND THEN CLICK AGAIN TO VIEW THE PIC AT FULL SIZE!

 

The Wiltern is such a beautiful building! We watched the sunset down Wilshire Blvd, as the temperature dropped and the wind picked up, and they opened the doors after 7pm and the line moved quickly through the security checkpoint at the front.

The Wiltern Theatre in Hollywood

Once inside the theatre, there was a fun scene happening in the lobby! There were backdrops for photos & selfies, artwork from the film, the bars were decorated with bowling pins and trophies, a vendor booth selling t-shirts and posters, and costumed bartenders waiting to serve you “caucasians” ($14 for a single, $21 for a double!).

Bottled Water $5.00!
There was also some snack food available for purchase: popcorn, pretzels, etc.

NOTE: A “Caucasian” is a White Russian cocktail with vodka, coffee liqueur and cream.

The restrooms were upstairs on the balcony level or downstairs in the cool basement bar area. And the real “Mind if I do a J?” party crowd was just outside on the smoking patio.

We wandered around and eventually went inside the actual theater space, with a bar in each of the back corners and no one waiting in line there. We checked out our seat in the front of the house, then we returned to the bar and ordered a double caucasian  from our bartender Roxanne, dressed in a Valkyrie costume, with slides from the film flashing on the tv screen/menu board beside her. We sipped on our beverage and then went back out to the lobby, sat and people watched until the first band came onstage.

And then the show began. Trainwreck rocked the house! Never heard of them before we bought the ticket and Kyle Gass was mysteriously absent from the band….

Then there was an intermission, and more wandering around, looking at all the weirdos, checking out the costumes, chatting with other Dudes, waiting for the next band….

JEFF BRIDGES and THE ABIDERS took the stage and opened with some Creedence. They played a full set of rock, country, blues and mellow music. It was a happy jam with Jeff Bridges sharing anecdotes and telling stories about film and the projected slides (black and white photographs he shot with his panorama camera during the production) on the big screens.

NOTE: My phone’s camera ran out of memory, and wouldn’t focus properly because of the lights and music stand, and we were seated so close that the sound over-modulated the phone’s microphone in the music videos we shot of the performance. We still got pics and video, but it should have been easier and the pics should have been better.

Jeff Bridges is a talented musician, and his backing band was made up of very skilled professionals. They played a long set peppered with a few anecdotes in-between songs.

Following the performance there was another intermission, then a short Q&A Session with Liam (Jesus’ bowling partner), the Cab Driver, and the Supermarket Checkout Girl.

“F*ck you man.
You don’t like my f*cking music,
get your own f*cking cab!”

Ajgie Kirkland, the actor who played the Cab Driver, said he had only worked one day on the film long ago as a day player, and it changed his life in a positive way.

And then, once he had recovered from the musical portion of the night, Jeff Bridges came back onstage and did a longer Q&A with the host and then was joined by The (real) Dude, Jeff Dowd. It was already after 11pm and they still had to show the film!

The Dude laid hands on The (real) Dude and he rose up out of his wheelchair!
It was a Dudely Miracle! Not really a miracle, but it was still pretty fun to watch.

The Dude and The Dude – Together Again!

The Dude and The Dude
At Friday’s Lebowski Fest
Together again

Following the Q&A, and after 11pm, they showed a 35mm print of “The Big Lebowski”.

It was great to see it on the big screen again! Everyone knows all the lines. Might have seen it once or twice (or over a hundred times) before. Such a great film, with a great cast, and great performances! So much fun and still funny every time!

We eventually made our way out of the theatre and back to the car, and then motored home well after midnight. It was a mighty fine evening out and we hope you enjoyed it.

When Disneyland first opened in 1955, there was a guidebook and postcards for sale to the public. Because there weren’t any photos, they used the artist’s illustrations and the pre-construction design renderings. And you could mail the envelope they came in.

The Guidebook

Disneyland sold them at a loss for $1.00 (they cost $1.10 to print) in the mailing envelope so that Guests would share their experience with family and friends back home.

Warhol’s Campbell’s Soup Cans

“My fascination with letting images repeat and repeat, or in film’s case ‘run on’,
manifests my belief that we spend much of our lives seeing without observing.”

“I want to die with my blue jeans on.”

“Being good in business is the most fascinating kind of art.
Making money is art and working is art and good business is the best art.”

“Factory Made: Warhol and the Sixties” is a book about the avant-garde group that came together as Andy Warhol’s Silver Factory from 1964 to 1968.

 

“Andy Warhol’s FACTORY PEOPLE, tells the story of the 60’s Silver Factory that Andy founded in 1964 in an abandoned hat factory on East 47th Street in New York City. The Silver Factory lasted until 1968 when Andy gave up the lease and moved to the White Factory on Union Square. Shortly after moving in the Spring of ’68 Andy was shot by Valerie Solanas and this event bookends the period of time covered in “Factory People”. The idea of the film is to tell the real story of the culture, who was there with Andy, who participated in the work with Andy, and what really happened during this period…all without passing judgement on Andy, his work, his friends, and the people who were there at the time. The film takes and in-depth look at the lives and times of the people who hung out with Andy and “worked” at the Silver Factory during the Sixties, making it all click as a new counter-culture arose and began to exert its influence throughout the arts.

DUDEISM: Come join the slowest-growing religion in the world, Dudeism.
An ancient philosophy that preaches non-preachiness, practices as little as possible, and above all, uh…lost my train of thought there.
Anyway, if you’d like to find peace on earth and goodwill, man, we’ll help you get started.
Right after a little nap.

NOTE: There are some states and counties that are very undude. First check with the County Clerk where the ceremony is to be performed to confirm or disconfirm whether Dudeist ceremonies are cool and legal.

A Big “Grab Bag” Box of Toys!

We came across a box of toys and it was opened so we got to poke around inside a little. And it was priced at $14, so we said “what the heck” and bought it for fun and profit.
