Dinner last night at the Ace Hotel here in Palm Springs. An amazing spot, and it's just down the road from Michael's house where we staying at. Pablo and Grady got that tingling feeling upon entering the lobby of the Ace—that Spidey Sense that all kids have when it comes to finding photo booths. A few minutes later, we have a great set of four pics to put into our collection. It's cool to see the two of them in this time-honored b&w format. I'll scan and post the whole set when we get back to LA. On the funny side, I cracked up seeing one dude who has a whole lotta hair, and the other dude who's burnin the midnight oil.
As you can see, I'm in micro-blog mode these days. With Pablo back on his feet, our whole family is constantly on the move, trying to get back in the swing of things. Everyone's still sleeping, and I'm gonna get suited up for my ride. Yesterday, my friend Jeffrey Light told me about one of his favorite mountain rides ever, and it's just a few miles down the road from here. For those of you who know the area, the climb is Highway 74 up to Vista Point. I'll take pics. Jesse and Josh from Eagles of Death Metal were over yesterday to meet with me. They grew up out here. I told them I was gonna take myself up that road and they looked at each other with a 'Is this dude nuts?' look and cautioned me. A lot. This, from a couple of guys whose last two album titles are 'Death By Sexy' and, um, 'Heart On.' OK, seriously—I trust J + J. Their wit is matched only by their pragmatism. I'm gonna keep it real, and stay alert on the descent.
Hoping Jo Ann, Polly and the boyz will drive up and meet me at the top. Jeffrey says there's a cafe up there. No idea if the cafe is good...or open... But if I can get these goons out of bed, we'll find out.
