Lindsay Lohan Stalkers

Lindsay Lohan is moving to Venice after three months in the desert.

Three months without drinking is a very long time. I've been searching to see what's her favorite alcoholic beverage so I can keep ingredients in stock just in case she stops by (she's welcome over anytime.) I see she likes Kombucha (yuck) and amaretto sours (double yuck). My research says she enjoys sweet liquor drinks, so I've invented this drink called 'The Lindsay' in honor of her move to Venice.

'The Lindsay'

1 1/2 oz. Stolichnaya vodka (available at Munis Liquor Jr. Market, corner Venice Blvd./Pacific)

1/2 oz. fresh-squeezed orange juice (preferably stolen off your neighbor's tree)

1/4 oz. Sonoma Syrup Co. Grenadine (available at the Lincoln/Rose Whole Foods)

Mix quickly with a few cubes of ice in a shaker, pour everything including ice into a small glass. I recommend repeating this drink three times to help forget about that Betty Ford lady.

Missing Graham Sculpture

Sculptor Robert Graham is gone from Venice. Here's some photos taken in August 2005 of his outdoor sculptures at UCLA's Rolfe Courtyard. Four of the works were damaged by a vandal and removed from the courtyard.

I wonder if these are the last days for the laundromat on Rose. Will the murals disappear when Whole Foods opens?

If you drive around Venice and Mar Vista, you'll see many signs for Jane Harman, but they all seem to be posted in empty lots. I see signs for her opponent Marcy Winograd on every block in Venice in actual front yards, but all the signs for Jane Harman are posted on fences in empty lots or on city-owned land. I've yet to see a supporter of Jane post a sign in front of their house.

I DID see a homeless couple sharing something as they were hanging out in the so-called 'Venice Centennial Park' and THEY had a Jane Harman sign attached to one of their shopping carts, but I'm not sure what this means, is she paying them to advertize?

Store For Lease

OK, they're not really dead yet. They moved the store from Venice to Santa Monica so they could be near another dying friend, Vidiots a 'video' store. Like a dusty curio shop, they still have small circles of vinyl and plastic for sale at 306 Pico Blvd.

Critical Mass

Tonight I found myself surrounded by Critical Mass bike riders. They ride through Venice on the first Friday of the month. I was in a car stopped at a red light at Ocean and Venice when they all appeared and surrounded us. There were maybe 50 bikes waiting for the light to change with us. Everyone was in a good mood, it was like having a moving street party on 100 wheels. Some of the guys in the group were towing a giant boom box on a little bike trailer loudly playing happy bike-riding music (My Sharona by The Knack). I didn't have my camera, so I rushed home to get it and went out searching for them to take their picture. Here they are on Main Street near Brooks. They rode up Sunset to 4th and then circled back down Rose towards Main on their way to the Santa Monica Pier.
