…and we get gigantic candy dots!
Luckily, I have a gigantic mouth,
…I was four years old. My Uncle John was twelve.
That same month, my parents took the both of us to Disney World. It was my first time at a Disney park, and John’s second time.
Yesterday, John and I visited a Disney park together for the first time in 32 years. This time it wasn’t Disney World (not much is), but Disneyland. Regardless, we revisited some old memories.
In 1981, my dad took a photo of us together on Main Street.
Yesterday, our friend took a photo of us together on Main Street.
In 1981, my mom bought us ice cream bars in Tomorrowland.
Yesterday, I bought us ice cream bars in Tomorrowland.
John still carries a purse,
…for sending us eight prints of her amazing art!
And that’s not all, folks, because she also sent us four Disneyland air fresheners!
Mickey Mouse Waffle! Mickey Mouse Premium Ice Cream Bar! Candy Apple! Turkey Leg! Yeah, we’ve got all the scents up in this bitch!
So thanks, Marla, for making the walls of our apartment prettier, and the stink in our car… Disney-er.
Be sure to check out more of Marla’s work (because that photo above is total shit and doesn’t do those prints justice) here.

…and caught three photo exhibitions: Herb Ritts: L.A. Style, Portraits of Renown: Photography and the Cult of Celebrity, and In Focus: Los Angeles, 1945–1980.
All three exhibitions were great. If you live in Los Angeles, or if you’re visiting and are looking to check out some amazing art, get to the Getty!
Here are a few of my favorite pieces from the exhibitions.
Herb Ritts, Mask, Hollywood, 1989 (with model Stephanie Seymour):
Herb Ritts, Rossy de Palma, 1990:
Nadar, Victor Hugo on his Deathbed, 1885:
Edward Steichen, Auguste Rodin – The Thinker, 1902 (with sculpture of Victor Hugo in background):
Diane Arbus, A Castle in Disneyland, Cal., 1962:

And thus ends your art history lesson,
I’m no longer writing Disney-related posts for “OC Weekly,” so if you read “The Blarg” exclusively for them (I can’t imagine that’s the case), sorry, but I’m done!
Time for new things,
