ben kweller

it's like ben is singing to himself, squared. and tell me he's not looking a little wee bit edward furlong on the left, there - is he not?

ben kweller played one of the best shows i've seen at the echo - he played the entire "On My Way" album from start to finish, a few new tunes for the encore and even gave away a wolf hat. but alas not to me.

a moment of silence...

the griffith park pool is officially closed. today when the lifeguard cooed, "thanks - see you next summer!" from his watchtower perch, i seriously felt like crying.

we learned a lot about public bathing this summer:
• the public pool is a cross-section of your community - griffith park attracts latino families, eastern european seniors who float about aquacizing and talking, cops who like to tan, hungover/pale/anemic hipsters in vintage bathing suits, a few semi-professional (or at least very serious) synchronized swimmers, semi-serious lap swimmers and people without air conditioning

• eating is only allowed on the adjacent lawn area, even if it's only trail mix

• there is no dilly-dallying around the edge of the pool - if you take too long getting into the water, you will get yelled at

• pictures are not allowed due to problems with pedophiles

• occasionally someone has "an accident" in the pool and everyone has to go home early

• at $1.25 for adults and free for persons with disabilities or a library card, the pool is, by far, the best deal in town

no respect

this defaced sparc mural in echo park makes me want to cry. it's almost as bad as that toy mouse who threw up his tag over elliott smith's memorial outside Solutions Audio. super lame.
