Tonight, the Egyptian Theatre is hosting a tribute to Kim Novak and she's going to be there!!! The Cinematheque is screening Bell Book and Candle with Pal Joey. If you enjoy extreme Technicolor, highly stylized sets depicting an idyllic late 50's NYC, Xmas fairy tales, sensual witches, subterranean beatnik clubs, Jack Lemmon, Ernie Kovacs, Elsa Lanchester, the Brothers Candoli and Persian cats, then you really need to come down to the Egyptian Theatre tonight. If not, then you should stay home and watch Family Guy re-runs.

OK, I cheated and added a couple of chairs and even a Captain in his PJ's because I felt that they added a little flavor to the collection.

The last few days in LA have been kind of gloomy – gloomy by LA standards anyway. I mean, it’s still no place for Ian Brady and Myra Hindley to stage a killing spree, but the clouds have been thick, grey and low, and wet, cool swirls of breeze pour through my window as I write this.

This is a good thing. This is a great thing! I did not move to LA for the weather. My idea of perfect weather is something akin to a cemetery scene in [insert gothic horror film here].

Recently, I found myself at yet another pool party where Industry types multi-tasked by schmoozing while sunbathing, enjoying tropical cocktails and posing atop Danish-designed chaise lounges as the desert sun baked their copper hides; the air perfumed with herbal ointments, oils and extractions, occasionally flavored with dissipating puffs of cigarette smoke – sex was in the air and everyone was hoping to be noticed by someone they were pretending not to notice – and all I could think was, “I wish it would rain.”

Inspired as I am by the titillating tenebrous of today, what follows is some of the music I save for a rainy day. These ditties are safely tucked in a specific playlist for whenever the Sun’s obscured and the scent of moisture’s all around.

Siouxsie & The Banshees – "Dazzle
"


This song takes me back to the appropriately dark days of the 1980’s. I had just dropped out of high school my sophomore year and the world was a new and wonderful playground of drugs and whimsical fashion choices.
