If you’re visiting L.A. you have to hit up The Getty Center, a big time museum that has its own hillside with a sprawling, scenic campus and various buildings that house exhibitions on each floor. It’s huge. And free, so go.
First, a quick story. About 5 years ago in Vegas, Carrot Top wandered past us in a bar with his cool-guy entourage and we all freaked out a little bit. It’s not that we’re just a bunch of ravenous Carrot Top fans whose dreams were coming true, it’s just weird when famous (or even semi-famous) people are breathing your same air. Once again, you’d think Robin was Tom Cruise the way I reacted. This flush of red hot excitement came over me and I *had* to get a pic. I couldn’t bear the shame of snapping an obvious pic so I did my signature move: pretending to talk on the phone and/or check my voice mail while secretly taking a picture. Here’s how it works – I set up my phone to where it’s on camera mode and hold it to my ear that’s facing her while I make listening faces and snap away until I feel I’ve gotten something viable. The outtakes consist of; blur, Mike’s head, the wait staff, and more blur. This was the money shot. Enjoy.
We’re down to our last week here in Cali, so I’m heading out to explore.
