Well, that happened…
My momma came to LA. I don’t think I ever been so grateful for a layover. She was on her way home from the other side of the world. We chatted. She showed me pictures. I stared at her. Her skin, still a cool brown, but interestingly not as deep as I remember. Her bracelets, silver rope replacing years of trade beads. I took in her energy, for the first time, in my LA space. It was so cool.
I don’t see her enough.
Wait. WHAT?!!! Prince is on Spotify?
I’m giggly+screechy! No. Really, just screechy. All this Prince in one place. Go check your streaming palace of choice. Is he there?

Same problem. Different choices.
I’m bought a record player. This one. Not the one I planned, but it’ll do while I save for the other one. I know what you’re thinking, hell, I know what I’m thinking and I’m okay with that.
Game Over, Man. Game Over.
I’ve been watching the reboot of Training Day on CBS. The ghost of Denzel’s Alonzo looms large, talking madddd shit. Bill Paxton’s Detective Frank Rourke is more average antihero than engaging villain, which feels a bit worn at this point. I wish he was an asshole, otherwise it’s just a cranky cop vs. earnest cop anti-buddy cop show. I already watch cranky cop who might be doing bad things to get the bad guys on NBC. I don’t know if there’s room for another that doesn’t stand out. Look, I love Bill Paxton. Have since I was a kid. He gives good asshole. So, I might keep watching. Hoping for it. The other problem is that because Rourke is likable, Jason Cornwell’s Detective Kyle Craig ends up being a bit of an annoying killjoy. The show is familiar and watchable. It bats third show/emptied bottle of wine in the daily decompression lineup. It’s kinda just on.
The Academy Awards are this weekend. That means two things: I can’t go to my Sephora at Hollywood & Highland and I will be in my feelings with whatever happens for the amazingly talented cast and crew of Moonlight. I’ll see La La Land when they release the Hamilton DVD with the original cast. Just saying.
Cause it’s supposed to always be sunny and hasn’t been, I think I might be doing these things:
+ going to see Get Out.
+ stopping by my local where my favorite librarian is putting on event about racism.
+ not talking about incense making cause I’ve not done it, but need to.
+ taking pictures of things.
What are you up to?
