Went to the local lesbian bar tonight, the Oxwood Inn http://www.oxwoodinn.com/ on Woodman Ave. and Oxnard St. and I saw my good buddy Johnny there. We had lots of fun singing and acting silly. It was sooo good to see him out of the behavioral health hospital he was at in Simi Valley this past week and a half or so.
He finally broke down and had a nervous breakdown of sorts and he had to check in. I totally know what that's like and it ain't pretty. He's on four different meds now, and hopefully it helps him. I feel sorry for the guy. So cute, so adorable and loving, and plagued by such crap. It happens to all us "beautiful" people. LOL! The law of compensation.
I noticed I'm a little rusty when singing in front of people, and that's only because I don't do it that often anymore. I used to do it religiously at the APACHE on Ventura Blvd. for about four years back when we had a great K.J. and crowd. She ended up going to Dallas for a job and the bar eventually closed earlier this year and became a trendy gay "karaokeless" bar. Too bad. I miss really good karaoke. The kind with awesome sound and the crowd to support you.
Where oh where can I go to find that again? I love music and I love to sing. I'm no American Idol, but I'm purty good.
I think. Shit man, I know no one can do The Beatles like me, that's for sure!
