Dog Day Afternoon

I stayed at Carson and Johnny's annual Fourth party for 8 hours. When you have guests that bring homemade ice cream AND rice crispie treats, not to mention the smoker goodies like tri-tip and chicken, and you have to wait in LINE because the stuff was so good, now that's a party. And no boring vegetables. SCORE!
The divine Carson.

C+J have the most interesting group of friends. A journalist from Sky News was filling us in on the Michael Jackson developments, Louis Metoyer, world renowned guitarist showed up to play one song and split. He's the only guitarist in the world who can replicate Jimi Hendrix's Star Spangled Banner and he shows up every year to play that ONE song. I was sitting next to a 23 year old girl and when he started to play I whispered to her, OH MY GOD, he sounds JUST LIKE JIMI and she gave me a blank stare. I felt sorry for her. Lord kids, you really missed the greatest musicians of all times. This was one of the games at the party. The goal was to get Green Shorts drunk enough to lose. In years past he always got naked after he got really drunk. This year he didn't get naked but he did get massively drunk. At one point we thought he had drowned. Good times.




Someone brought their rubber girlfriend. And no it wasn't me although we looked alike but I had more scars.
Fireworks!
All in all, a great Hollywood party. As usual. I have to hand it to artists, they really go crazy trying to out do normal people. Meaning no children, lots of swearing and tons of booze.

End of chat.

  2. What a great weekend! It is a pity that the younger generation has no clue who the great artists were.

    I hope you didn't suffer from too bad of a hangover.

  10. Music, alcohol, drunken fighting and explosives. Sounds like a Bennett family reunion. :)

    Sounds like a blast.

    Peace,

  12. seriously is there anything that epitomizes good clean fun like alcohol and fireworks??

    Well, maybe if you had a gun, but still...Good times!

    Honestly, i see no potential downside.

  13. I know all the great artists... because my mother was kind enough to pound it into my head during the early NKOTB days. Now I really dont care much for new age music. Party looks fun. Sounds better than my fourth! :)

  14. It's all fun and games until somebody drowns...or gets nekkid. Lol!

    I'm with Michel. Where were the firearms? Having endured many a 4th of July (and NYE) in Chicago, I know that gunshots are mandatory.

  15. My 19 year old son idolizes Hendrix--it's totally not an age thing--it's an ignorance thing.

  16. I totally want to do the pool jousting thing! I have always wanted to be on the Gladiator's show, too. Can you get me on there?

  17. Jimi and I had to cuss and party without kids WITHOUT you because no one invited us. Yes, he's dead and I have bad hair. Why are you such haters? The sparklers didn't burn him but they did a number on my dry ends.

  18. Suz, I come from a family of artist. I love their parties because it is always a good time. Some of the most interesting party games I've ever seen. Like Grab A Geezer and Getting Grandma to do the Funky Chicken. Yeah good times.

  20. Grab A Geezer - Find the oldest guy in the joint with the worst toupe' then you grab him and force him on to the dance floor hopefully not to break his hip. Find out his age the one who dances longest with the oldest geezer wins. (this works in both straight and gay bars)

  21. Looks like "The Anniversary Party" got it right. Did you see that movie?

    This could've been the storyboard.

    Was on vacation. Am back. Still bloggy-fatigued. So, WTF else is new.
