I read this in today’s Sunday LA Times while I enjoyed my home brewed coffee. Yes, I read a physical paper that is delivered to my doorstep and grind my own beans for coffee. Its an interesting debate. Even after reading it, I still consider my condo that has a downtown skyline to be on the eastside. Do you other silverlake, echo park & los feliz dwellers consider yourselves to be eastsiders? If we aren’t eastsiders, what are we? It’s most certainly not the westside. So where do we land? Where do they land?
Last nights show at the Echoplex was really great. For me it was one of those nights where I was sure I was never gonna get up the energy to really enjoy myself. I was worn out from a long week at work, my feet hurt from running around in heels all week and I just really wanted nothing more than to be at home on my couch. Well thanks to the awesomeness that is Passion Pit those woe full feelings just melted away. by the middle of the first song I was movin an shakin and happy as shit that I wasnt at home on my couch.
It’s summertime and my students need some clothes. I question whether some of the kids even have appropriate summer clothes. It is hot hot hot here in Los Angeles and they are all sweating wearing jeans and sweatpants. Having clothes that fit and are appropriate help the development of young children. It increases their self esteem and they take care of and pride in their clothes and appearance. We need shorts and shirts for boys ages 11-14 (sizes 28-33 generally for shorts). PLEASE help out. It can be your old clothes or something new from Walmart or Target. Erica got an awesome pair for $20.00 at Target and when I gave it to the kid he said, “Oh my God! They have tags on them!” A lot of these kids have never owned something brand new. But it doesn’t matter if it’s used, they still need it and they will still love it. We need shorts and t-shirts of all sizes. Please email me at email@example.com if you want to donate some clothes or if it’s easier for you, donate money and I’ll go out and buy clothes. Remember, it’s a 100% charitable contribution going to some of the poorest kids in Los Angeles. Plus you’ll get a picture of your kid wearing his awesome new clothes. What’s better than a smile on a kids face because of something YOU did? NOTHING!
I will be picking up some clothes for these kids. Please do the same if you can.
It’s sad to know that the Mickey that pretty much everyone I knew grew up hearing will not be heard by the next generation. What makes Wayne Allwine’s story even sweeter is that his wife did the voice of Minnie. If that’s not cute I don’t know what is.
This is so sad! I feel so bad for his wife, Russi Taylor. She is a wonderful woman who holds a very special place in my childhood. My heart goes out to her.
