1980's and (818)
You live in the suburbs of the valley of Los Angeles - it's 1986 and PROM is here - You and your girls are heading to Fashion Square Shopping Center in Sherman Oaks for dresses - wearing your light blue denim, slightly ambiguously shaped, jeans and mustard yellow tops while your feathered hear falls perfectly as you throw your head back to laugh at Tracy's joke while going up the escalator - "Tom is just SO lame AH - I mean -- like, Max told me he was going to sing in the cafeteria on Wednesday to ask me to Prom - YOU GUYS ! I'm going to be totally embarrassed!" -You blast "Age of Consent" While getting ready in your pastel colored bedroom - lavenders, baby pinks, and light aquas paint your walls - while - aerobic leotards, neon leggings, and pale blouses fill your floor to ceiling mirrored closets - "Just Like Honey" soundtracks your date's arrival, drive on Ventura Blvd, and slow entrance through the gymnasium doors as you walk through the dispassionate white balloons that hover awkwardly above the ground - The synth of "Bizarre Love Triangle" and modern tunes of Com Truise and John Maus saturate your night, while "Don't Dream It's Over" winds it down as you rest your cheek on your date's chest - You run in the streets with your date to "Frozen and Distant" with heels in hand - you rush past desolate Liquor signs and Bowling Alleys - BECAUSE IT IS ACTUAL PROM SEASON - VANESSA AND I WILL HAVE DATES AND THEREFORE YOU SHOULD TOO - even though we go full out for every one, if it is even possible, we are even going MORE FULL OUT FOR THIS ONE - we even have THREE SLOW DANCES rather than just two - pictures and all so go on over to 1986 and to the (818)- we will see you there
THEY got a record deal? Kicking off with a Real Housewives Hour (Kim, The Countess, Van Kempen...oh my!), I'm spinning tracks this morning that will keep you scratching, but surely bobbing, your head. Also of note: the first time Paris Hilton, Shaq, and Kevin Federline have ever been played on WBAR.
Session II.IX: Getting sentimental! Instead of celebrating the greener things in life for 4/20--because let's be real, with a show called the Trainwreck Sessions, that's my MO every week--consider this a tribute to my wonderful friends from home.
