Apartment Hunting

Sample headshots

I am looking to move into a place of my own. I went today and walked around Koreatown area of LA. I looked at a few places but have not put in applications as of yet. If anyone reading knows of something reasonable but not dumpy, please let me know 🙂 I currently live in west hollywood in a condo with a doctor. It is not horrible. But I feel like living by myself now. It can be taxing to have to worry about someone else’s idiosyncrasies. The two things that bother me about this current room mate are: He refuses to lock doors most of the time so I have to do it. Luckily I leave after he does, so that is not too big of a deal. The other issue is his pets. They make a mess from time to time and it can be a bit gross. Oh and occasionally he will play his television too loudly when I want to sleep. So I am trying to find a place in a quiet building for not a lot of money. I do not need anything fancy. I just want a small space that has enough electricity for my computer and a/c unit so I am comfortable. That is all I need.

A word about Mickys and Cocktails Host

It has taken a lot of thought on my part to be sure that I am justified in what I am about to type. And I feel that the following is accurate. First, I worked with Mickys night club for several years and was certain they were happy with me and my photo work. However, they made a lame excuse for telling me they no longer wanted my services. They claimed that since I was selling photos from my website without their permission, that surprised them and bothered them. As if that did them some kind of harm. It did nothing but made me a few dollars and promoted the events held at their club. I also have a strong feeling that Dennis has always disliked me and just found this opportunity to ask Michael to stop using my photography.? Updated:? By gones are over.? I am not going to say bad words about any past events.? I hope Dennis and Mary Ann work with me once the club is open again.

I have not done any photo work in several days and feel like I need to find more work to do. I plan on going to Fubar tomorrow night for Dirty Deeds hosted by Chi Chi LaRue. I figure it should be an alternative to shooting porn night at (m)Ickys. They have been making seriously bad decisions and burning bridges left and right. I left a barrage of emails and voice mails for Mary Ann, the general manager. She did not have the professional courtesy to return any of them. So I just feel I will move on past this club and find some new things to photograph. I also spoke with Paul V about Dragstrip66. He said they are on hiatus until October but should be fine for me to come back to take pictures then. The new venue will be Safari Sams. I have not been but its in hollywood and seemed better (less sketchy) than the one in Echo Park.
