Abbott Kinney in Venice Beach.


 

Cool ass fireplace at Beechwood.

 

Me and Sis @ Beechwood. 

I had dinner at Beachwood in Santa Monica with my sister and her boyfriend.  It was delish!  I had a baked mac and cheese and shared some indian spiced lamb sliders with my sister.  After dinner, we decided to have ladies night.  Her boyfriend was busy with a bid on a contract for the Harry Potter movie, so he couldn’t party with us.  She took me to the Other Room at Abbott Kinney in Venice Beach, a trendy strip known for shopping and partying.

 

Other Room gave me a loungy New York feel, with brick walls, deli-like chalk board beer menu and dark decor with candelight.  I particularly enjoyed being surrounded by beautiful people.  I grabbed me a “Chimmay” because someone had told me to recently try it.  When I got my goblet of beer, I was surprised to see it say “Chimmay.”  It was a great full flavored beer, similar to a Blue Moon.

As we walked towards the corner of the room, at a table sat one of my sister’s friends.  We immediately joined them.  It was interesting to talk to his friend who I thought was feeding me bullshit.  He was so refined and intelligent and accomplished at such a young age.  But all Hollywood peoples are like that.  “Fake it till you make it.”  Or maybe he was telling the truth.  I pointed out that I like that artwork, and he began to boast and brag that he was the inspiration for the artist. But oh well.  I wasn’t trying to hook up.  I tried a sip of his beer with a lemon in it, and it is refreshingly light and delicious.  One of my favorite beers to this day.  Similar to Blanche de Bruxelles.  His glass said “Allagash.”  Was I to understand that they had a special glass for every single beer that they had on the menu?

It was about Midnight.  I drove from Vegas to Cali that day on no sleep and I was exhausted.  My sister suggested the Brig, but I went home and got some sleep.

Time Starts to Pass Before You Know it You’re Frozen…


“Life passes most people by while they’re making grand plans for it.” George Jung. (Johnny Depp) Blow

I asked my daughter what she’s going to do when she grows up.  She said she’s going to do art.  She wants to do 10 things when she’s big.  She wants to paint nails, and play computer.  She wants to make funny faces.  She said she’ll work a lot like Mommy, and give her kids respect and lots of toys.  She says adults don’t play.  I guess she sees me working all the time.

I often think how nice it would be to be a kid again.  When I was young, I couldn’t wait to grow up.   My parent’s always told me, before you know it you’re going to be a grown up and you’re going to wish you were a kid again.  Yeah right, I thought.  I’m tired of my parents bossing me around.

When I was 15 I ran away from home.  I didn’t see my parents for 3 years.  I hustled hard to pay for a hotel at the Prince in Waikiki.  I had enough money for food, but had to eat $1 menu @ Jack in the Crack often.  Once in a while I’d pick up a case of  Smirnoff Ice, or a beer. I didn’t have a lot of clothes, in fact, I could fit it all in a back pack, because sometimes when the hotel’s were full in busy season, I’d go sleep on the beach.  Yeah, I know, I’ve come a long way from my teenage years.  But that much independence taught me life.  I was free and I loved it.  I was living it up.  I wish I could go back to living in a shack by the beach, little responsibility, being happy, and feeling young again.

Now, I live in a luxury 2 bedroom condo, have 3 cars, a beautiful daughter, 5 credit cards, and an ample list of bills.  The quality of life is definitely improved, and the company is better than the last time, but I can’t help but sometimes feel like I’m not going the places I want to.  I am still pursuing my education as a fashion designer.  But I have so many passions and can’t focus it all.  I love art.  I’m a musician and composer.  I’m the creative type.  I love film and theatre, and composition.  I love food and wine, and travel.  I am in love with love itself.  Constantly looking for the perfect love (if I haven’t already passed it by).   I love writing.  Modeling.  Photography.  Expression.  This blog is my way to share my soul with the world, and feel like I am doing something worthwhile.  I’m stuck in Vegas until my lease is up in May, and I just feel like I am dying here.

I’m the ambitious type and sometimes I get caught up and lose it.  Sometimes you just have to pick up and go somewhere new and start all over.  I feel sorry for people who get caught up in something that is no good for them.  A drug addiction.  A bad relationship.  The wrong city.  A dead end career.  They are all so separate subjects, but can be equally deadly.

Know which way the wind blows. It’s sending me to LA.

Begin doing what you want to do now.  We are not living in eternity.  We have only this moment, sparkling like a star in our hand and melting like a snowflake.

Get Your Hair Done Bitch!


I was eating with my sister at L&Ls and we were talking about Gene Simmons and I couldn’t remember which band he was in.  Then this guy from nowhere (Robert) was like… Yeah he’s from Kiss.  And gave me his number and invited me to get my hair done by him, which was absolutely perfect!  Because I needed a bang trim.  The salon was conveniently located walking distance from my sister’s house, on Main Street in Santa Monica.  I noticed they carry a selection of Goldwell, Redken, Phyto, Swarzkopf, all favorites of mine, as well as a variety of other products as well.  The salon was cute inside too.   He trimmed my bangs for free, so I left him a nice tip. ;D  Get your hair done, by Robert.

Thanx Rob!

Glow: Santa Monica 2010


Went to Glow at the Santa Monica pier which is an all night art show at the beach.  I watched the 1st 2008 show and it looked like a giant light show on the beach.  My sister said that it was previously like a giant rave with dj booths and music on the beach but that a 15 year old girl died because of an ecstasy overdose, so they have toned it down and turned it into a more family oriented event that closes down at 3 am versus at sunset.

I walked 4 blocks to the pier because the roads are closed down and we grabbed wrist bands to go on the carnival rides.  Down the beach you can see giant white light balls on each stand but nothing too fancy.  It was a bit disappointing.   But the beach and pier were covered with people everywhere.

I’m surprised how strict drinking, and smoking, and dog laws are at the beach.  They had small boxes painted on the sidewalk where designated smoking areas are.  Dogs aren’t allowed so we had to leave poor Bonjook home. ;(   We had a bottle of sake hidden in my bag which I forgot about and didn’t even drink.  My feet are so sore from walking so much today.

This is what the previous Glow looked like.

This is what this year’s looked like with the exception of a few booths, and a big projection screen.   Each booth had a giant white ball light.  I didn’t even go on the beach.  We just stayed on the crowded pier.

Kaya Sushi: Marina Del Ray, Japanese and Korean Cuisine


My sister’s boyfriend, Olcun treated us to sushi and Korean food last night at Kaya, in Marina Del Rey.  They had a great atmosphere with fish tanks and nice waterfalls everywhere.  The sushi menu was elaborate.  I even saw a waiter bring out to another table a ‘flambe’d’ sushi.  I had the spicy tuna crispy rice.  And a kim chee dolsot bim bim bap (beef, vegetables, egg, rice in a hot stone pot, so the rice gets crispy), along with a mug of Kirin.  They ordered hot sake which we all shared.  It was great! I loved the fusion of the Korean AND sushi.  I got my fav, bim bim bap, and Kai could have sushi, her favorite.

Ichiriki- (Nabe) and my personal recipe


Have you had nabe before?  Not to be confused with shabu shabu or hot pot.  Shabu Shabu is the same meat and vegetable ingredients except you cook it in water with a little bit of konbu (seaweed).  It is plain and light.  However, nabe is the same ingredients except with flavorful broth’s.  If you haven’t eaten at Ichiriki before, it’s most likely you haven’t had nabe, unless you’re from Japan or something.  I’ve looked all over Vegas and LA for nabe and I can’t find it ANYWHERE.  I miss Ichirki, and every time I go to Hawaii, I will make sure to stop there for a pot of shio nabe.

With dim lighting and a calm atmosphere, the traditional decor includes bamboo partitions, shoji screens and private curtained tables.  One area of the restaurant you are required to take off your shoes, a Japanese tradition, where you are seated on a sunken floor on pillow seats.  It reminds me of eating with my grandma.  They have an array of mouth watering unique pupu’s (appetizers), shabu shabu, sukiyaki, a variety of nabe, and other izakaya (bar food).   Check them out on google, there’s a reason they mostly have 5 star reviews.

My favorite appetizer couldn’t be more traditional: cucumbers, with onions, with ume paste (sour pickled plum) and katsuo flakes (dried bonito fish flakes)

Karaage chicken is my daughters favorite, with mayo and Sriracha sauce.

For lunch they have smaller portions with choice of meat, (beef) shrimp and scallops for about $12

Regular nabe is about $20.  Seafood nabe contains large tiger shrimps, scallops, and king crab legs and runs about $30.  Nabe is served with a bowl of rice on the side, and I like to order a side of udon noodles as well. The ground meat in the bamboo scoop is ground chicken and pork “tsukene”.  It’s scooped into the soup and cooked with the array of meat and veggies.

You can choose from a variety of flavors such as miso, shoyu, shio (my favorite), kim chee, pirikara (spicy), and even a new flavor, I am yet to try, light ginger broth.
They have GREAT poke too!

They also have a lounge upstairs with daily drink specials, “Ichiriki LOFT.”  Try the Shiso Mojito, a shochu-based mojito with muddled fresh shiso.

The sake selection is also good and served in bamboo boxes which enhance the flavor.

Ichiriki LOFT is conveniently located at 510 Pi‘ikoi Street, just across from Ala Moana Center, with parking available in an attended lot behind the building. For more information please call (808) 591-5638.

Hours: Mon-Thu 5-11pm, Fri-Sat 5pm-12am, Sun 5-10pm
Price Range: Entrees $15.95-$45.95
Recommended: Shio Ichiriki Nabe (w/ side of udon), Ume Cucumber, Karaage
Payment: AmEx, Disc, JCB, V, MC

NABE RECIPE

I’ve learned how to make my own nabe broth because there is no nabe anywhere in Vegas.  First you cut the steams off the shiitake mushrooms and cut the caps in half and soak them in warm water for 15 minutes.  I bake a piece of ginger in olive oil until it is brown.   Add it to simmering water.  Drain the mushrooms, then boil shiitake mushrooms and ginger for 8 hours until the broth is golden.  I drain the mushrooms  and ginger then add shoyu, mirin (rice wine), MSG Makes everything taste better.  Some recipes use meat but mushrooms won’t spoil as fast as fish or meat.  Using so lessens the shelf life of the soup.  I like to refrigerate the soup and eat it over the next few days or use it in cooking of other recipes.    I asked them what the broth is made from Ichiriki and they said shiitake mushrooms because of peoples allergies.  If you want to cheat and don’t have time to lett it simmer all day, I like to use katsuo dashi powder.  It’s a little expensive.  probably $15 for a box of seasoning, but it is flavorful and can be ready in a few minutes.   And the box will last you years. I add ribeye, shrimp, scallops, crab legs, aburage, tofu, green onions, shiitake mushrooms, bamboo shoots, enoki mushrooms, udon noodles, carrots, mung bean clear noodles (long rice), fresh gobo (burdock), arabiki (berkshire pork sausages), kamaboko (fish cake) and make my own ground chicken and pork tsukene (meat balls) to put in it.  I never measure anything and always cook to taste, so  I can’t tell you the measurements.  That’s the best way to cook!  Then once you get it down perfect, write it down.

Kristie Manning: Thought I’d interview myself. LOL! The best/worst photographers in Hawaii


How did I get started modeling?

Well actually I always was told I was beautiful and should model, and I always wanted to do it, but I think I just procrastinated.  I was always very skinnny, (not anymore ;p) and could eat whatever I wanted and not worry about my weight.  When I was 17 I was approached by a tourist in Waikiki by Larry Silva (Ohio), an amateur photographer.  Being my first time ever shooting I had a few bikinis and we went to a great spot in Diamond Head, a little topless beach I like to tan at that isn’t very crowded.  Only a few surfers paddle out there.  I wish I could find the pictures from the shoot.  In my favorite pictures, I wore an aqua Brazilian bikini that flattered my body type well.  The pictures were very amateur, but they were beautiful.  I was so happy with them.  My natural talent showed through, and by many photographers I have been complimented  on the expression I show through my eyes.  Especially in these first sets of photos could you see my dramatic expression.

My next shoot was with Paul Kusaba.  We became really good friend and I got a lot of my practice on him.  Our first shoot was some fashion shots at Temple Valley in Kaneohe.  It was a fun shoot.  I was getting comfortable with posing and expression.

What was my favorite shoot?
I’d have to say my girlfriend Cher, also my talented makeup artist, started a clothing line called “Phragile.”  It was mostly cut up tank tops.  She wanted me to model for her line.  It was super fun.  And Marlowe Holt shot it.  We went to that same beach where I had my very first photo shoot, on Diamond Head.  Marlowe was super talented, and the shoot wasn’t too long.  He made me look like a super model in almost all of the photos.  I love collaborating and working with friends.  I also did a lingerie show for Look Magazine as a favor.  It was a really small show, and Reggie Miller was there.  But the girl’s were cool, and it was really fun getting ready for it.  I like to be sexy. ;D

What was my first nude shoot?

I shot with Clay Valverde when I was 18 after we had done a few bikini shoots.  I started to feel more comfortable with him.  I really didn’t know the scene yet, and he offered to pay me for a topless shoot, so I did it. I still brought my boyfriend along to feel comfortable.  Sometimes you can just tell when a photographer is perving out.  He seemed to always be licking his lips and staring at the wrong places.  He always was trying to get me to do nudes.  I’m comfortable with it, but it should be professional.  I regretted shooting in that apartment with horrible lighting because it looked like amateur porn.  I shot with him 5 years later in a bikini shoot with my girlfriend.  His photography did improve greatly.  But I don’t think I’d shoot with him again.

I’ve done implied nudity shoots with JT Gray from Northshoresurfphotos.com, Marlowe Holt, and talented Vince Cavataio as well.  When I was 19 I had the opportunity to shoot with Mr Bob Coello from the Northshore, owner of artofwomen.com.  He is so talented and uses mostly natural light to shoot.  I shot some bikini pictures with another girl.  He insisted that I do some cheesy coconut shell top pictures so I did.  Regardless of talent, Bob Coello is the biggest fucking pervert I have worked with.  He’s openly a pervert.  I guess he knows he can get away with it.  However, I am super pleased with my private collection of nudes that he did for me the second time we shot.  They are beautiful.  And he didn’t use  a touch of photoshop on them.

Bob Coello

Have you been published?

I had a 3 page spread in Easy Rider’s Magazine.  That was a fun shoot.  We shot on a dope chopper from Kustom Fab.  I had to do my own hair and makeup, and help with wardrobe because the guys were clueless.  They asked me to help last minute and I did it for a friend as a favor, but they paid me well. ;D

I got a full page in Ryan Kerns’ spread in Look Magazine after I shot with him.  After our first shoot at Toni’s house, I still was having fun shooting so I suggested that we (him, Kai and me) continue shooting at the Pali Lookout.   He got some great candids of me and Kai.  And a sepia picture of  me showing my back in a $500 yellow Catherine Malendrino dress was published.  It was nice to see a full page. ;D  Too bad I didn’t get any credit as the model.  It was actually funny because Ryan had been trying to get me to shoot with him for years.  I had always declined.  But I noticed his portfolio improving, so I decided it would be beneficial to shoot with him.  Ryan has grown to be a very talented photographer.  I thoroughly enjoy shooting with him.

I shot with Vince Cavataio on the North Shore.  He is a super mellow surfer dude from North shore, and practically is the King of bikini beach shots, Hawaiian Tropics style shoots.  I’m pretty sure he invented it.  We did some sexy bikini pics and implied nudity pics.  He’s very professional and a talented photographer.  There were many great photos in the set.  He had some photoshopped pictures where he made my hips curvier and boobs bigger as well.  They were pretty good too.  If he didn’t live so far I’d shoot with him every week, if he’d let me.  We shot a second time and attempted an underwater shoot at Rocky Point.  I’m a water baby, but it was super hard.  The current is super strong there.  I couldn’t hold my breath very long.  And relaxing my face while trying not to block my face with bubbles was difficult and working on my pose.  2 years later they published one of the pictures, (not the greatest) in the Women of Hawaii 2009 calendar.

I did a Coolio music video in Higschool. LOL.  And a music video for my boy Ikena Dupont and Big Tease.  I’ve also been on a lot of local fliers and posters and local businesses such as clubs and bars.

I’ve been in a lot of films at import shows and random stuff, I can’t remember now.

Vince Cavataio

Are they real?

Real expensive!  I got my D’s from Dr. Gregory Herbich in Honolulu.  He is a talented dr. and I haven’t hesitated to recommend any of my friends to him.  The 1st month I got them, I called my boy, Paul Kusaba.  Thanks to him, I got most of my amateur practice on him.  LOL!  I told him we have to shoot my new babies, and we went back to my favorite spot, Diamond Head.

What’s up with my tattoos?

Its a long story.  Kind of stupid.  A reminder that I was in love once and never again.  My ex and I did our swallows together.  I have 2 on my pelvis, done by Q at House of Ink.  He’s great, has a steady hand, and works fast.  Ny ex has two on his lats.  I wanted to go small for my first tattoo.  It didn’t really hurt too bad.  It stung a bit on the hip bone but the rest was ok.  THen he dropped me off at the airport to Vegas, and he left for deployment the next day and I remember bleeding all over him, hugging and crying at the airport.

After we broke up that same summer, I did it.  I had a Sinful t shirt with rhinestones on it with roses and swallows and a banner.  I bought it at Metro Park.  The same day I went to my tattoo guy, Andrew, an apprentice at House of Ink in Kailua and asked him to draw a rendition of that, in his own style.  I liked Andrew’s style, he is a talented artist.  I wanted my swallows to be different from the traditional jerry sailor swallows, like the one on my pelvis.  Then he showed me his gray ones on his chest plate.  It was perfect.  But of course, different.  I think subconsciously, out of hurt and heart break I tattood my back.   I kind of regret doing it.  But it’s always a symbol of love (and hurt) to me.  It’s still a beautiful tattoo, and I wish I could finish it but my homey Andrew moved to SF.  But hey!  I’m moving to SF next year, so maybe I will finish it then!

I think getting a tattoo has hurt my chances at becoming a successful model.  But I don’t really care.  I’ve never been the type to conform.  I like being myself and doing what I want to do without any restrictions.  I think tattoo’s are getting more common everyday.  Besides, I model because I enjoy it, not because I want to be some amphetamine girl role model for little girls and women everywhere.  I think it’s a joke when girl’s who are no where near star quality actually think they have a chance in the model industry, and as they get older, eventually get manipulated into lower standard modeling, even playboy, or soft porn.  Being in Play Boy in my opinion isn’t an accomplishment.  Don’t get me wrong.  Every girl in Play Boy is beautiful, but I think if you are a real model, you’d be doing runway shows at fashion weeks, in print ads in Gucci and Dolce & Gabanna, and getting paid $20k for gigs to keep your clothes on.  Sometimes I do wish that I never shot nudes.  A lot of people told me I’d regret it when I was younger, but I didn’t listen.  But who does?

Who are my favorite photographers?

JT Gray Northshoresufrphotos.com, Marlowe Holt marloweholt.com, Ryan Kerns, Oh there’s so many, I can’t name them all.

Who are my favorite Stylists?
I never really worked with many.  I’ve done most of my own concepts.  Ryan Kerns always has innovative ideas.  And Caleb Shinobi has great innovative ideas.  I only got to shoot with him once, unfortunately, but it was so fun and creative. (and naked ;D)

Favorite hair stylist?

I have a secret weapon… shhh… you can’t tell everyone.  Sunny Salon.  And old Korean lady who has a shop upstairs from Like Like Drive Inn on Keeaumoku.  She’s the only person that would do my hair perfect everytime.   She’s amazing and fast!  Everytime I’d come back to her after someone screwed my hair up begging her to fix it.  I always leave there looking like a movie star. LOL!

Favorite MUA?

Cheryl Definitely CHER!

What inspires you as a model?

When I model I think about how I would look at my boyfriend.  I want to look sexy.  SO I guess I have a bit of a sexy deviance in my eyes.

PHOTOGRAPHERS TO WATCH OUT FOR!!!!

I use to work out at Power House and was approached by Emery Lucas.  Watch out for him.  he promises $200k print ads, and a $200k bonus for getting implants D and bigger.  I told him I was already a D and he insisted they were C’s and I go bigger.  He wanted an $800 deposit. Total SCAM. He also wanted to take pics of my boobs.

Kent Tran.  His photography looks bad.  He ran into me on the street and tried to flag me down and get me to join him for a drink at a hostess bar.  He frequents hostess bars and tries to hook up with girls at hostess bars.  A hostess once told me that he asked her to join him for a drink, then made her pay for it. Then when they shot, he demanded she be his girlfriend.

Bob Coello.  He’s super talented, but he’s a total perv with no professionalism.

Clay Valverde. I  never was comfortable with him.  You just know.

Ty Ferguson.  I met him at a MMA fight I ring girled for once.  I hate to be a mean critic, he was a nice guy but his photos weren’t that great.

Melodie Gore – model, makeup, hair, styling, and creative concepts, in Los Angeles, CA


Faith, and Tiny Dragon Productions

I am a visual artist and model based in the Los Angeles area. My professional work focuses on creating erotic fantasy characters mainly through costume and makeup. I am heavily influenced by Japanese traditional and pop culture, especially Anime and J-Rock. I have the most fun shooting as an Anime character or doing gruesome effects makeup. I have a Journeyman’s degree from the Make-Up Designory in Burbank, CA and I’ve attended school at the Art Institute of Philadelphia and Savannah College of Art and Design. I’m currently living in Los Angeles but my experience and network spans LA, New York, Japan, Mexico and Canada.  I am also a full time EMT in Los Angeles. My portfolio consists of collaborations  with many close friends. I prepare most of the shoots myself, and provide all hair, make-up and clothing unless otherwise noted.

Jamais Vu

Manning: How did you get started in modeling?

MG: Well, I started modeling mostly by accident….I just always had a creative visual art side and somehow started using that on myself and people wanted to shoot it.

Manning: Where did you study?

MG: I started makeup back in 03 after graduating from the makeup designory of LA.  I chose to get a degree in makeup because Iwanted to work as a sculpter in an FX lab.  It was sort of a deviation of my passion for medical science combined with my fine art background.

Manning: Where do you get your styling concepts?

MG: Styling came about because I always do my own costumes and makeup so it again was an accident

Manning: Where do you get your inspiration?

MG: My anime shoots are inspired from anime and video games.  I like to watch and play.  I research all my chracters and base them on who I would want to be if given the chance.

Manning: What have you studied?

MG: I studied graphic design but come from a painting background.

Manning: What else do you do?

MG: I currently still am an EMT and am trying to progess into a paramedic. I love my job.

Manning: How is LA?

MG: LA is a love hate relationship lol…its beautiful and I love the mix of culture here, but you have to beaware because most the people are are quick to use you to get ahead…its a snake pit and you have to watch your back.

Manning: Where would you like to travel?

MG: I would love to see Thailand or more of Japan. I love asian culture and would like to experience more of it.  Also from studying art so long, I woud love to go to France..

Manning: Where would you like to live?

MG: I would def live in Tokyo if I could I love Tokyo so much!

Manning: Me too!

Manning: What has been your fav gig?

MG: my fav gig…. I’m not sure.  I love so many of them…..but my fav people to collaborate with are Adam Chilson, Tiny Dragon or Dan Santoni..they are also nerds that get what I’m trying to do…..and my close friend Anthony Canney from the House of Canney is my #1 for costumes.

Manning: Do you do your photoshop?

MG: I can use photoshop but I dont use it extensively…I’d rather try and get my images through the lens and not in post….now the digital graphics stuff i can not do….like the cg on green screen the photographers I work with do that if need be.

Manning: Any Upcoming gigs?

MG: I’m constantly working…I have a cool new fire series I just shot and as always my continuing work on godsgirls.com
