Honor Fraser held another exhibit for Kaws and his Man’s best friend collection.  Most of it consisting of Snoopy and his popular Spongebob features hidden throughout the paintings.  I was a little disappointed with the last exhibits I attended displaying a lot more statutes and vinyls but Kaws’ line work made up for it.  Words can not describe how perfect each line, each curve flows in every painting on top of his shadow work that is a just as defined.  We went into a few other random museums but had to leave from giggling at the nude art or because Tamara was touching the exhibits.  Then the famous question popped up ‘are you hungry?’ which then lead into one of the most asked questions of this generation ‘Where do you want to eat?’.  After a bunch of I don’t cares were exchanged I brought up The Misfit since it was on the way home and on third street, no girl can resist 3rd street.  After stuffing our faces we watched Tamara shop and then I was luckily enough to sit in on a photo shoot she had in the car with herself and Rachelle who was trying to drive.  I miraculously got home alive and was only 20 minutes late for work…

Kaws’ line work is literally perfect, I was that asshole trying to find a flaw in the painting.

With the both of us having the day off and fueled on Redbull, Derek and I thought it’d be a good day to learn a little.  Since we haven’t since high school, and even then that didn’t really count.  The Museum of Natural History and Science were right next to each other so it was a double header, with a lot of bathroom breaks in between.  We were fortunate enough to get there right as the kids’ field trips were over so we had most of the museum to ourselves.  Employees were scattered throughout the place, informing you of facts about the exhibit which was cool until you stood there too long.  Then it felt as if you were in a video game and they were just repeating themselves.  The Science Museum is always fun because unlike the other museum, it’s free and a lot more hands on.   Put it this way, they yell at you when you try to touch the 5,000 yr old artifacts at the History Museum other than the fake starfishes over at the Science Museum.  They even had real live sharks there which is always a sight to see, especially when the little kids are banging their toys on the glass as hard as they can.  For dinner we traveled around the block to Santa Monica where we met Courtney for some great food court cuisine.  And no, nothing came alive at night at the museum.

The day began with a fuel up at the gas station, which is when we lost Pat for 5 minutes.  Wondering where he went, he showed up with about 18 little mini shots to get everyone excited for The Bank Sale.  We made it to DTLA in no time luckily not hitting any traffic on such a beautiful Saturday.  This year it took place at the LA Convention center and I can gladly admit it was more packed than it was last year when we went.  It was more well organized, tighter security, and a lot more vendors.  We did some laps around the expo, talked to kids just who started their brand by printing out of their garage just like us and made some new friends.

All day Courtney was hinting eating at The Misfit in Santa Monica and since I was driving, no one had a say in if they wanted to go or not.  It is the ‘hipest’ place in Santa Monica if you want to grab a bite to eat or drink beer out of really tall, skinny glass.  I got the usual spicy chicken sandwich while everyone devoured their burgers.  After refueling their we aimlessly walked around the promenade as Pat kept us entertained by dancing and singing along with the street performers.
