so i lied. the theme tune of this trip has actually been Jamie Foxx 'Blame It' you can listen to that masterful piece of high concept R'n'B here -
(I will henceforth be naming all blogs after R'n'B songs. hopefully at some point i will find appropriate ones that describe my state of mind and/or situation. one can only hope.)
we are now in nyc recording our album (argh!!!) we accidently skipped the whole of Austin. we actually sucked really badly at the whole daily blogging thing. but in our defense we did actually get kind of busy.
so I'm going back in time a whole 1o days and pretending we're still in LA...
Day Two: we went to VENICE BEACH which a treat for both the eyes and ears. Rosa met her soul mate there -
we listened to more R'N'B on the car radio.
we played at a ridiculously cool warehouse/studio/space thing (this is the only time I will ever describe a venue as a space i promise.)
we watched, danced to and befriended Sky Larkin. by the end of their set the drum kit was no longer intact and this is how we knew we would be friends for life.
watch some Sky Larkin action here...
we drank lots of free alchohol and ate the first of many cream cheese bagels.
we bid adieu to Los Angeles and continued our journey towards Texas.

good morning. we're in LA. its a bit like Grand Theft Auto. actually its exactly like Grand Theft Auto. we walked to the place for dinner last night despite the strong words of my Grandma who told me 'don't walk anywhere in LA.' possibly she's right. we met at 10 characters on our short 3 block journey. one of them tried to sell us a zippo for $5. we politely declined. another was saying to an aquaintance 'come on then boy lets take this right the corner, i'll beat the shit outta you nigger' . we laughed quite a lot. i think we're definately going to get killed due to our inability to take anything in our surroundings seriously.
more importantly, on our drive from LAX airport yesterday afternoon we heard the best song ever which is now going to be our theme tune for 'Trip to America 2009'...
It's by Soulja Boy and it's called "KISS ME DOWN THE PHONE"
Here t'is with lyrics so you can sing along like kareoke....
also last night when i went to the toilet they were pumping out Boyz 2 Men in the lobby at like 4am. i love LA.</br>
over and out
