Obama & McCain at 7 Eleven

October 22, 2008

Dudes, Josh and I were apartment hunting all day in the hot LA sun. We passed a 7 Eleven in Los Feliz and had to get a slurpy. Low and behold there was this poster in the window welcoming both Obama and McCain customers. It was crazy to see how many cups were taken from each column. Vote SMART PEPZ!! Don’t be a “Douchenozzle”!!!

LA Tattoos

October 15, 2008

Since I’ve been in Los Angeles, CA there are two things that I constantly come across. One, it’s impossible to make left turns at green lights and two everyone has a tattoo. There are so many unique places put ink it’s insane. A waitress at the 101 Dinner, in Hollywood, has a tattoo under her chin. We even saw millions of bright neon signs and billboards up for an LA Tattoo Expo. One of my favorite eye candy TV shows is LA Ink. Kat Von D is an amazing tattoo artist and she has other great artists working for her as well.

Josh and I figured what the heck and went to the expo. I was really excited to possibly meet Kat Von D. Tons of amazing artists and sounds of buzzing tattoo machines going on all at once. It was hard for my eyes to take it all in. There were a lot of huge back pieces being worked on, as well as body jewelry, teeth whiting booths, and a tooth diamond accessory that is glued on the front tooth so when “you” smile it can go “bling“.

In the back there was a contest going on with guys with out their shirts, and girls in bikini’s. This one contestant legs were totally covered in black & white ink with characters from *Pirates of the Caribbean. Not just the “characters” but the actors who played the characters. It was amazing. I wish I had photos of it to show you. Below is a color version that is comes close.

After an hour surrounded by it all Josh and I were in a zombie like state and became amped up to get a tattoo. We collected tons of business cards and looked through portfolios. Maybe next expo we will get there early enough and get a tat.

Dude, no Kat Von D at the expo. I was so bummbed out!! Josh really wants to get a tat by High Voltage’s Cory Miller. He is so amazing!!! There is a million year waiting list because TLC made them popular. I did see Kat Von D’s ex High Voltage Tattoo shop manager, Pixie Acia. She is a piercing artist and she was getting bombarded with people yelling things to her like, “Hey can I get a picture with you hot mama. Your sexy. Yea, you’re sexy”. Very creepy how being on TV makes people larger than life and regular people think they could invade privacy. Nutzo.

Josh has been getting a lot of allergy attacks in Los Angeles. This morning he woke up with *swollen lips. This is the second time he’s had big lips since we’ve been living in LA. His hands have also been itching. Not sure what it could be from. Last night he had some red wine and the other time his lips were big he ate a cupcake, on his birthday, with a strawberry on top. We are staying with my friend who has a cat. Maybe that’s what it could be from.

I sent out some resumes to try to find a job yesterday. One place was at the *baby carriage company BugaBoo, based out of Holland, Amsterdam. I was submitting to a lot of places in LA and I figured I’d be creative and apply in another country. So, this morning I check my emails and I have 1 new email. Low and behold, it was from BugaBoo. The email….

Dear Tamra, Thank you for your application for the position of industrial designer. I have a question for you, are you aware that although we have offices in the US, the design department is based in Holland, Amsterdam, at headquarters? If you still want to proceed with your application, could you please send me a digital portfolio? This will help with the screening. As soon as I have your portfolio I will forward it to our design manager. Thanks in advance! Kind regards, Eveline

I read this email to Josh and he said, “Let’s move to Amsterdam”. I said to Josh, “But we just moved to California”. He said, “So, let go have adventures”.

LA LA land

October 7, 2008

Josh and I made it to LA!!!! Yea!! It’s been a whirl wind of an experience in LA so far. As you can see we haven’t had a second to make another blog video. But don’t you worry it’s coming really soon!!

Since our last blog posting OJ Simpson has been found guilty again, the market has crashed again and I’m still jobless, car-less and apartment-less. Good news on the acting front Josh and I have an interview with a commercial agent tomorrow. Also, we had our 1st LA “The Josh and Tamra Show” performance at Improv Olympic West. We had a great audience and we hope we another show run coming up soon. Keep you posted.
