This week and this weekend there are all sorts of parties going on in LA because the XGames are here. Lots of handsome skaters have been posting pictures on their Twitter of themselves all sweaty and shirtless after their practice, and quite frankly, it is very exciting.
What? Come on. Let me objectify men, alright? I let you objectify me!
I am not going to the XGames; this weekend, I actuallyam going to my aunt’s 90th birthday party, in Ohio. It will be a lot like the XGames. My 90-year-old aunt is pretty bad ass.
However, last night I did go to an XGames kickoff party that Travis Barker played at. He played drums while Mixmaster Mike DJ’ed. It was awesome to see Travis in such a small and intimate venue. I have not seen him on such a small stage doing anything since the Warped Tour in like, 1998 or something.
The set was pretty awesome; it made me giggle a little bit because him drumming along to the DJ’s set reminded me a little of playing Rock Band or something – however, it was really cool regardless. Travis is obviously a hell of a drummer and it was pretty incredible to watch. It was kind of confusing because I wasn’t sure if I should be dancing to the songs, or watching him play drums, so I kinda switched off and did a little of both.
It was hard to get pictures, but here was the best I could do. Actually, what am I saying. Brian Street Team took these pics! So this was the best HE could do. The ones on my phone were pitch black.
The best thing about The Roxy, is that is it is right next door to the infamous restaurant The Rainbow. And even though Los Angles has pretty shitty pizza in general, the pizza at the Rainbow is pretty damn good. So I did get to indulge in some pizza .
All in all, it was a fun night.
