Kendra says…. did anyone else recognize Jenny & Johnny on the Gossip Girl premiere Monday night? gossip girl is my guilty pleasure, so no beaking - thanks. Jenny needed a bit more time and Mr. Rice could have done with a little less… Leonard Cohen reference fail. What do YOU think?

At one time in my life, I was the proud owner of a 1964 Chevy Malibu SS. I bought it in a parking lot after emerging from a bar in Hollywood in the mid-’90s. It was a beautiful machine, and my mother happened to be dating a guy called Radio Bob who owned an auto-body shop out in the San Fernando Valley. He offered to paint the car for free. When I finally got it back after some time, Radio Bob informed me that he had painted it “Cinnamon Sunset” after the color of my hair. It was beautiful! It was fast! It turned heads! I drove it for many years until I couldn’t afford to drive it any more. I had switched careers, trading in the residuals of my youth for the T-shirt-selling, on-the-floor-sleeping, coast-to-coast-schlepping indie-rock-band life. It was either sing for my supper and pay my rent or sell my muscle car. So, it had to go. I listed it for $3, 500 in the Auto Trader. I received more than 50 calls on it. I should’ve known then that the listing was too low. A family showed up to buy this beautiful machine. The father and I both wept a little as I walked him down the carport to greet cinnamon sunset. He knew he was getting a great deal, and I knew I was making a huge mistake. We all piled in the car. I decided to sit in the back, as I never had before. It seemed fitting for the last ride. The father drove, his wife in the front, and I sat next to their two-year-old kid in the back. We drove around Silverlake. And as we turned back onto the street where I lived, the kid, who had been silent up until this point, looked at me and said, “Vin Diesel!” His parents turned around in disbelief. Apparently, those were the kids’ first words. ”Vin Diesel”, right there in the back of my Malibu. Well, their Malibu.

It’s New Year’s Eve, I’m in Glendora
I’m the only living person in Glendora
Headin’ east on the freeway
I left my prom dress on the busstop in Duarte
I switch the rules, you take advantage
You know I always like to play the victim
And would you fuck me? ‘Cause I’d fuck me ♪

And if my brain quits, well I guess then that’s just it
And if my hands stop working you can call me lazy
And if I get pregnant, I guess I’ll just have the baby
Let it be loved, let me be loved

“I never say never. I loved Rilo Kiley—I loved writing with Jenny.
I think she’s a great artist and great to write with. I think we’re not there yet. Maybe one day we’ll dust it off and give it a go; I’d be open to it. I think it was fun—for all of the pitfalls, it was great. I had a great time in Rilo Kiley. I always did.”

There are no better words for the coast today
then you ask what’s a palisade
and if we’re too late for happiness?
