Stan Ridgway and Friends In Whittier

Has it been two weeks ago already?
Dez, Severo, and I saw Stan at the Ruth B. Shannon Center for the Performing Arts in Whittier on February 4th.
Here we are with Stan, helping push the merch. 
The Shannon is a lovely small theater, with nicely raked seating so the sight lines are good.
They also have NO extra service charges on their tickets. Yay!

One drawback is a strict ban on photography and recording devices.
I already knew that, so I took along my sketchbook:
[clean copies of the sketches are over here on my sketch blog]
Tonight, I meet up with Dez again, to see Dave and Phil Alvin. Woohoo!


Consider the Dragon Fruit... or Not

Mr Glutton brought home an "unaesthetic" dragon fruit that wasn't nice enough to justify the $5.99 price tag at his day job.
(It would have gone to the trash, so he "diverted" it to his pocket).
The Google says it's supposed to taste like the intersection of a pear and a kiwi.
It does not.
At least this example didn't.
It tasted like nothing and left a unpleasant aftertaste.

Sure is pretty on the inside, though!
Maybe it was overripe.
