hi everyone!!!

HI my name is Anna! Elvia was nice enough to give me blogging privileges here on Well Hung. She lets me come over to Moksha when I'm on my break at the Grand Illusion to talk to her about my problems and stuff. She always gives me such wise advice. Why is she so nice to me??

Anyway, everybody should attend my first ever photo exhibition! It's part of the Fremont Art walk. Andrew Waits is showing too and is really talented. Will you come? Please? You can view my photography here to see what you're getting into.

Hope to see you there!!

Hope Sandoval & The Warm Inventions

There was a time when I would sit in my room alone and like most cases of adolescent/teenage angst, I often found myself in the deep realm of melancholy. Longing for a love that didn't exist and yearning for things that were far from reach. Finding solace in words not yet spoken and a life unimagined. It was here in this place that I found countless hours of comfort in Mazzy Star.


Funny to say, Mazzy Star was an Alternative-Rock Band (now I realize it's more like Shoegaze) from the early to mid 1990's most widely known for their song "Fade Into You." Late night found me on 120 minutes with Matt Pinfield (the greatest show on MTV, EVER back when they actually played videos) and I was drawn to the haunting voice of Hope Sandoval, front woman of the now dormant group. As I usually do when I get completely obsessed with a band or whatever else I adore; I go out and buy every single album from their catalog.


You can only imagine my surprise in mid/late 2001 when I came across the album Bavarian Fruit Bread. Working for an internet company that provided digital media for online music retail giants; this allowed me access to some of the newest, oldest and greatest music, anywhere. An old love and obsession had reemerged in a different form as I embarked upon those first discoveries of love and the beautiful Emerald City in my early 20's. With new favorites such as "On The Low" and "Clear Day."


Bavarian Fruit Bread is the first LP from Hope Sandoval & The Warm Inventions which is made up of Hope Sandoval and former My Bloody Valentine drummer Colm O'Ciosoig and this Wednesday, September 23rd at The Crocodile (that's tomorrow) after all these years, I will finally get to see her (them) perform. I've heard stories of Hope having stage fright and playing shows late, if at all! I'd like to think that it's going to be a magical show and hopefully all those fears will have subsided...

New Inspiration!!

Vivien Leigh has totally captured my heart and admiration!! I recently watched a movie that she stars in called Sidewalks of London and was very inspired by the film. I looked up Vivien Leigh just now and realized she is the actress from Gone With the Wind as well!! Anyway for those of you who enjoy classic movies I suggest checking out the films that this little sassy star has acted in. She is delightful.



 Have a pleasant day!

B L E N D E R - Review

BLENDER was a fun event and a big thank you to everyone who attended! We were in the company of friends old and new. We tapped out the keg at 1:30am! Well done! Resident DJ INTROCUT laid down the beats as per usual and eR Don and Tyler Swan had heads bobbing. If you missed out, you can catch them opening up for Telefon Tel Aviv on September 29th at Chop Suey. A big thank you to our lovely hostess, Jessica Estrada for planting the seed and for being one of our biggest supporters.

We also met the sweet ms agentnoir from A Girl's Guide To Seattle. Check out her review of BLENDER at: girlsguidetoseattle.com
