Radiohead: From The Strings Point of You

had an interesting idea; Radiohead's Bends album from the point of you of string instruments, their string instruments. Radiohead has been a vary popular band for the past 10 years with song such as Karma Police, Creep, and Just. That's a BIG responsibility for any band to take on. HUGE! Let alone 3 violinists and a cello player playing at The Broad Stage in Santa Monica. But it is not the first time this quartet has taken on such heavy tasks. They have performed their version's of Coldplay's Yello, The Postal Service's Such Great Heights, and Muse's Time Is Running Out.

Give Me Meat!

From food truck to five fabulous locations Umami Burger has become a stomach teasing activity. They serve you a burger and an hour later you want more. This phenomenon could be because the burger is rich with flavor or because they are the perfect size but regardless be prepared to have a craving soon afterwards. Mine happened in my sleep. This place is not for vegetarians or vegans so don't even consider it. The place smells like fabulous well prepared animal. And not only does the place attract fun crazy hipsters but nice normal people too. Yummy!

Written In Blood

With so many artists in the Los Angeles area, inspiration for art can be challenging but not so challenging that one would look past an artist who isn't afraid to work in his own blood. Mr. Kushner does not fain at the sight of his own blood nor does he become light headed as he makes the cut. With pride and purpose he carves into himself, as the audience flinches, to sign a sold piece of work while its new owner stands close by. The dark presence of Marilyn Manson, spinning his new album Born Villain, and Rudy Coby, a professional magician, solidifies his influence as seriously bizarre.
