Transmission LA

 Over the weekend Scott and I went to this radical art show at the MOCA called Transmission LA.  It was curated by Mike D(beastie boys).  It was so very fantastic, especially cuz Scott was asked to create an installation for it.
 So the deal was, there were the actual contributing artists and then for one night they asked a bunch of different people to create installations and show them on an empty space of wall around the museum. It was very very cool. They also had  Diplo DJ and the koji truck outside for food.
Scott looped a video of random kid show characters(what else), with randomness in between. I was so very proud of him. It turned out really good. Thanks to Colt and Craig for helping him get it done in time. It was worth the sleepless night.

                                    We thought we'd pose cheesily in front of it.

 Seriously, who is this guy? If you ever want to know what goes n in Scott's mind, watch his installation. Some wacky stuff.
This was one of my favorites, it was by artists, Ara Petersen and Jim Drain. It was a hallway of fan driven spinning wheels, I could have stared at it for hours. I wanted to somehow take it home with me. I think I could have hypnotized my kids with them for sure.
I would tell you to go down to the MOCA right now and see this exhibit but it was the closing weekend, soooorrryy. But you can go here and read about it.


After the art show we headed to an arcade and then to a Karaoke bar. Which I haven't done in a loooong time. It was so much fun, but we did have good company. I sang a little Justin Timberlake, while Scott chose something on the soft sides......air supply. It's actually  a little no fair cuz Scott can really sing. while I sound tone deaf . But I had a good time regardless.
So do you have a favorite song to sing  when you Karaoke? Come on give it up........

That first shot of you & Scott is really wonderful.

Tainted Love is the only song I've ever tried. I sing better in the car when I'm all alone ;)

Since I'm pretty much tone deaf as well, I'd be incredible funny and choose "Just don't know what to do with myself". And then this would be so old, that no one probably would understand the joke.
