Cure Gems - Dodger’s Stadium backstage footage, 1989 (Prayer Tour)

I’ll always get goosebumps watching this… you can find it in Picture Show. That film is perfect, an incredible amount of unique footages! 
I get goosebumps because you can feel all the sense of anticipation and excitement before the concert. Robert looks very concentrated on what he’s about to do, and it is beautiful because it’s a proof of how much he loves doing what he does, and how much he cares. Other than that, you can see everyone is enjoying the situation, and that’s a very good thing too. (Also, Plainsong wind chimes! ç^ç)

Psy at Dodger’s Stadium

evening adventures on foot

i live next to a very steep hill called reservoir street.  the top of the hill looks straight eastward towards dodgers stadium about a mile away as the crow flies.  i don’t follow baseball, but there have been many dodgers games lately and at night the lights of the stadium illuminate the whole area, as can be seen from the top of this hill.

descending the hill tonight, i crossed alvarado street and arrived in downtown echo park.  i passed through a bohemian used bookstore i really enjoy.

i collect books, and was practically foaming at the mouth when i first discovered this place. but tonight, i was just going to see if there were any events happening on the back patio.  some times there are book readings or signings or poetry readings and similar live events here.  this characteristic is what gives the place its rather unoriginal name: Stories.  it also has a cafe i haven’t tried.  i find out the next reading is on saturday, apparently, so i continued on my way.

i decided to go to Señor Fish the mexican taco restaurant on the corner of logan/west sunset blvd.  i think this place is new and i have been to Señor Fish in Pasadena and know they have hearty fish tacos. until recently, the windows were this gross brownish purple tinted glass covered with graffiti, but they got rid of the windows and replaced them with really nice natural stained wood-shutters that open and close.  pretty classy. and it really opens up the restaurant.

i sat down with my companion and we were kind of looking at the TV on the wall.  it was the dodgers vs. giants game happening, literally, a couple of blocks away.  i thought this was cool to be watching a game happening around the corner  and now i want to go to a game before the season ends.  but then i hesitate because baseball can be kind of boring to watch especially if you’re not hammered

what follows was kind of weird …

no one came to give us menus or take our order, yet there were two servers helping other people in the restaurant. fifteen minutes passed and no one came, even though it was pretty dead.

did they think we were homeless? 

we left without eating and walked about a mile down sunset towards silver lake to find a better restaurant.  what we found was incredible and i’m writing an entire review on it.  will post soon.

We made this video with our good friend and collaborator Daniel Pappas.
He and our other friend Nick Walker have directed all the videos for our album, but for this one Nick was in Jamaica, so Dan took the helm by himself.
Here, the ghost of an aspiring actress (played by Dasha Nekrasov) floats though Hollywood purgatory seeking her final peace.

We are all very interested in the contrast between the different parts of Los Angeles, and wanted to use this video to dig deeper into the misery of the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

We shot this entirely with iPhones over the course of one day in December. Shooting with iPhones is great because the cameras on them look good and you’ll rarely get asked if you have a permit.
