Artifact Screening in Los Angeles Round Deux

Last night, March 19th, the second LA screening of “Artifact the Film” took place at the New Beverly Cinema. It started a little late because of some projection problems, but they were sorted out eventually. I noticed many return faces in the crowd from the first screening and in fact later Jared asked how many people had been to a previous screening and a majority raised their hands.

Remembering Traci Michaelz

It is very hard for me to put into words how hard it was to hear about the passing of my good friend Traci Michaelz of the band Peppermint Creeps. He had a very special place in my heart, as well as many of the lives he touched in his life. When I think of Traci, I can’t help but smile. I had the best times with him, the craziest times, and the most amazing conversations I have had with anyone in Hollywood. You make a lot of friends in this city, the city of lights and entertainment. Everyone comes here to turn their dreams into a reality, and Traci was one of the few who excelled at it, above and beyond anything else, he finally was doing what he loved the most – his music.

LOS ANGELES, CA -- 50th Annual Grammy Awards are on.....feel free to discuss! I will be updating this post with my quirky commentary throughout the telecast.

Vince Neil opens Dr. Feelgood’s Rock Bar

WEST PALM BEACH, FL -- My feet are covered in blisters but question is: Was it worth it? Thing is…if I had to do it again I would – I would just wear better shoes. It took 3 and a half hours until Vince Neil took the stage (he was 2hrs late), one additional hour for the concert, and then a whole lot of waiting in line to get into the club that had people literally crammed in there like a pack of sardines.

Motley Crue gets a star on Hollywood’s Walk of Fame

HOLLYWOOD, CA -- GOD WHAT AN HONOR TO BE A PART OF THIS EVENT! I feel like I was a part of a day in history!! Definitely a highlight for me to be able to be a part of it all! My best friend and I got there very early this morning and stood right in front of the barricade, which was cool. Started talking to some of the fans in there and even ran into a couple friends who said to me "I knew you'd be here." The band showed up about an hour before the event and the people from Third Street management and bodyguards were lingering around the star.

VH1 Big in ’05 Awards

CULVER CITY, CA -- My neighbor and I went to the Sony Studios at around 3pm and there was already a line of seat fillers to get in. The weather didn't help much because although the sun was out, it was very windy and everyone was shivering. Of course, our line was in the shade which just made it feel like it was even colder out. We are in line and moved around closer and closer to the studio door, but we had to wait until close to 6pm to finally make it inside. I tell you waiting around sucks,and all I could think of was I hope this thing is worth it because my feet and my back were hurting badly, not to mention the cold wasn't helping.
