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.



I Want to Eat @ Morimoto.

World renowned, Iron Chef Morimoto’s restaurants located in Philadelphia, Napa, New York, Tokyo, Mumbai, and Boca Raton, are now hitting Waikiki.  He has also been the head chef, of one of my favorite restaurants here in Waikiki and world wide, Nobu.    Can’t wait to eat there.  They are open for dinner, lunch and breakfast as well as having a seperate lounge menu.  Perhaps I will swing by for a light lunch one day soon.  Friends have told me that the restaurant is very bright, and that takes from the atmosphere, and that they prefer Nobu.  I love the bright lime green decor, beautiful lacquered wooden tables, vibrant violet  orchid pictures, and panoramic glass, with views of who know’s what?  Perhaps this would be a more enjoyable lunch spot, than a dark romantic dinner.

Kristie Manning

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
