So, did anyone notice that this poor blog disappeared for nearly a week? I had just moved it to a new server about a month ago, and after putting in an estimated 20 hours (probably more) transferring it over and setting it up in WordPress, the server died. I would like to think that this blog is just so incredibly amazing that the server just couldn’t handle all that awesomeness, but really it was just a bad motherboard. I’ve been using this server for personal projects for nearly 15 years and this is the first catastrophic failure I’ve experienced, so hopefully things will be stable for another decade or so!
Well, once again I am feeling like a nightclub orphan. The Los Angeles underground club scene has been shifting again, as it did about a year and a half ago. Venues are closing left and right, leaving the promoters scrambling to find new homes for their clubs. Sometimes a venue change is a good thing… Often it is not. Currently, there’s really nowhere good left to go except Bunker, and I’m not really that into Industrial music… Perversion still totally rocks at its new location, but the insane drink prices and unisex bathrooms don’t appeal much to me, plus Thursday nights are not ideal.
So, since I probably won’t be clubbing much for a while, I figured I’d better get used to Gothing it up for more mundane activities, like movie night. In order to make it more special, Mr. Kitty and I have decided that pretty much any time we go to a movie, we’re going to go down to the Arclight in Hollywood. Yes, the tickets are more expensive (but still cheaper than a night of clubbing) but this place creates a truly delightful movie-going experience. There are no children and no disrespectful teens. The theater won’t allow people in after the movie starts, and everyone actually sits there quietly and watches the movie. It’s immaculately clean, and theater staff even come in beforehand and announce the movie. It feels like a grown-up evening out. Plus I don’t feel as out of place dressed nice in a theater like the Arclight, as I do at the local mall movies!
Do you like to go out to see movies? If so, do you have a nice theater near you? What do you wear?
