The vibrational energy that Diva puts out is such that she always gets us invited to the best weirdest secretest spots around LA! Last Saturday we were serving a tri-color bowl of zucchini angel hair pasta to the hardcore shoppers and hardass skaters at a tucked away sample sale for INSIGHT in Culver City. What!? So we show up and jeans are being flung, tanks are being tossed, and the DJ's playing Yo La Tengo. Sounds rad, but then we're situated behind the insane exhaust fumes of a greasy old taco truck serving up carne asada to all our potential customers! Busted, right? But the board scrapers were in top form working off a budget ramp made of the oldest wood we'd ever seen and held together by duct tape, and the cash-dropping crowd were loving our sample bowls of pesto, marinara, and alfredo pastas which we made the day before during a two hour stint while primping for our Paper Magazine photo shoot with lens legend Dan Monick. Phew! Seriously a nuts weekend, and luckily no nut allergies in the crowd. After serving it up, we found ourselves at a makeshift craft station, drawing Blackblack cdr covers and listening to Tracy Chapman's "Fast Car." It was a quick change for Diva into a tropical bird ala vintage Tiki Room and then Blackblack played an awesome set. When the buyers pleaded, there was no food left and all the songs had been sung. That's how we do it around here, always leave them wanting more.
