MY WEEK IN PHOTOS: JUNE 17–23, 2019!
Multiple art museum visits, cooking my own homegrown shishito peppers, backyard movie night with friends, and shooting more delicious food with Jill in Little Tokyo.
Got these pants a while ago, finally daring to wear them.
Starting the week with War of the Ring still on the table. The game is pretty complicated, and since it took us 6 hours to play over the weekend we just left it there.
On my shit getting my passport renewed. Feeling ~on it~
Another Monday, another pottery studio. Threw a few pieces, including a wonky bowl. Then glazed a bunch of pieces.
Came home and Zach was nowhere to be found, but he did leave dinner 90% done on the stove
Whipped up a guac and finished up dinner
It’s June, but still gloomy and cold.
A mini exhibition featuring the recently conserved panel painting by 15th-century artist Ercole de’ Roberti. The show also includes details about conservation findings.
Oops I guess I like this color
The cleanest he’s looked in a while
Got home from work and Zach was furiously applying puffy glue to the different armies in War of the Ring so we can get ORGANIZED.
For some reason we agreed to all meet back up after our 6 hour game on Saturday and try one more time on a weeknight. We thought since we had learned new rules since then that we should try again and it’d be faster.
This time James and I were team Fellowship.
We spent a lot of the game confirming rules and reconfirming rules.
Whiskey had to be poured after it passed midnight
And we finished…actually 6 hours as well. We lost sigh. Evil prevailed.
A visit to the Hammer Museum
Here to see the Sarah Lucas exhibition at the Hammer
When I was in London, there was a lot of Sarah Lucas around. Fun to see her in the states too. So many dicks.
Sculptural arm doing a jack off motion and we are bystanders, enjoyin’ the show heyo.
From their site: “Since the late 1980s, Lucas has transformed found objects and everyday materials such as furniture, cigarettes, vegetables, and stockings into absurd and confrontational tableaux that boldly challenge social norms. The human body and anthropomorphic forms recur throughout Lucas’s works, often appearing erotic, humorous, fragmented, or reconfigured into fantastical anatomies of desire.”
“Bringing together more than 130 works in photography, collage, sculpture, and installation, Sarah Lucas: Au Naturel reveals the breadth and ingenuity of the artist’s practice. The exhibition addresses the ways in which Lucas’s works engage with crucial debates about gender and power–with a particular attentiveness to the legacy of surrealism—from her clever modifications to everyday objects to her exploration of sexual ambiguity and the tension between the mundanely familiar and the disorientingly strange.”
“Lucas has produced throughout her career, the exhibition features biomorphic sculptures including her stuffed-stocking Bunnies (1997–ongoing) and NUDS (2009–ongoing), the Penetralia series (2008–ongoing), and selections from her installations at the Freud Museum in London (2000) and the British Pavilion at the Venice Biennale (2015). These works, which complicate inscribed codes of sexual and social normativity, have never been shown together in the United States.”
Tried out Tofu Ya, a soon tofu place on Sawtelle. Had a blast.
Zach trying halo halo for the first time apparently?!?! Ube icecream is a weakness of mine
The day has come where Amelia decided to transplant her baby cacti into the bigger pot
Success?! Mild surgery was performed on the plastic container but nobody was lost. We’ll see if they keep growing…
Setting up the grill for some bbqing at home, plus picking shishito peppers from the garden!!!!!!! THEY GREW!
Then we did a tester run of the projector for outdoor movie night that is upcoming.
The popcorn machine that I got years ago during a gift swap with my family at Christmas WORKS!
Summer grilling except not grilled these were made in a pan on the stove.
Pleasantly surprised by the sweet potatoes
Terminator 2 outdoor movie night—so much popcorn consumed.
Double food shoot: one at Sake Dojo and one at Far Bar. Go eat there! (Or just follow their Instagrams and enjoy the pics)
He followed me home from Little Tokyo.

Somehow, this week was the most amazing week I browsed. The food looked amazing, the fellowship, everything. Thank you for sharing.
Well, August is a weird month: I’m moving out of my flat, and I’m packing for the Peace Corps, so I’m trying not to stress.

Sending you all the positive vibes this month as you tackle moving and heading out for Peace Corps! Amazing!
Not got too much going on in August. A couple of birthday parties I’m looking forward to, and camping with friends in Pembrokeshire. Mostly I’m excited for going to Greece in September!
