I was doing some research and found this
You’ve gotten the invitation for your friends’ wedding, happily circled the date on your calendar and started shopping for their gift, when all of a sudden it hits you – what are you supposed to wear???
Yup folks, I have a wedding to go to. It’s not until the 25th but I will be there I usually hate weddings because they are long and boring but I REALLY love these people. I haven’t known them long but it doesn’t take me long to figure out whether or not I’m gonna be REAL FRIENDS with someone. I’m going to make sure to dress the way I should and be in a good mood even though it starts at…oh shit…I just looked at the invitation and it starts at 3p I love it…I knew I liked these people for a reason. I gotta figure out what I’m gonna wear. THIS IS GOING TO BE GREAT.
So in other news, I ended up doing four spots tonight I did the Spot in Culver City, the Bliss (again), the Terrace in Pasadena and finally ended up at the Zoo. For anybody wondering why I’m adding links to these and listing the rooms it’s so if an open micer wants to ask me where I go, or some of the places I go to, like they tend to do, I can direct them to my blog. It’s an easy way for me to avoid having to answer the same things over and over.
Some people might wonder what the point is of doing the Bliss two nights in a row is and this is the reason. Bliss has two completely different vibes depending on the night. Like Tuesday is Dave Corrado’s night. Dave is cool and chill…kinda’ and the room tends to be a bit more on the “supportive” side. Great for working out material but you have to get there hella early because the sign up is at 6 but a lot of people get there by 5:15 and the open mic doesn’t even start until 7. Like I said it can be great for working out material but it’s gonna take a bit of a time investment.
When it’s Wednesday that’s Maurice King’s night and it tends to be a bit more “urban”…LOL!!!! I love Wednesdays because a lot of the comics aren’t even in the room but you just go up and do your time. Maybe nobody’s paying attention, maybe some people are paying attention from outside, it forces you to think and to just work on stuff. You DON’T feel like a superstar but it’s great. I can honestly say most of the comics that go to Bliss are my friends. Especially on Wednesdays like Maurice, Fu, Dbey, Henry Coleman, Rell Battle, Kristin Brock will sometimes make an appearance, Lara Csengody, Julia Lovetere, Dan the Man, Daugne Keith and of course Martin (pronounced the Mexican way). I love Martin and his wife Reyna and the whole situation down there.
Oh yeah, while I’m on the subject, I was on Yelp yesterday and read a review where a guy badmouthed the Bliss and I wouldn’t mind if he were bagging on real shit like the fact that they stopped carrying Krispy Creams but he was saying that it was roach infested and fecal something or other and I will tell you that is NOT TRUE I don’t drink coffee so I’m not gonna act like they’re serving up the best cup of joe in the city because I wouldn’t know and if you were to say that I wouldn’t be able to argue but I KNOW clean and I KNOW dirty and I don’t eat in dirty places. I eat in Bliss, I perform in Bliss, I hang out at Bliss and I can tell you it is NOT a dirty place. Martin is on top of those dishes and wiping down counters and the tables don’t have crumbs all over them, it’s clean and they now have soft serve ice cream. Btw, I woulda’ put this on yelp but I didn’t want it to turn into a “flaming” situation or some bullshit I just thought it was important to mention to you guys. Anyway, nitey nite.
