Xmas-Party Blur

We went to an ad agency Xmas party last night at a large club in Hollywood, in Los Angeles. We imbibed a LOT of cocktails. So many in fact that we have little memory of the evening’s drunken craziness. (And what memories we do have are a confused blur.)

Fortunately, we took pictures with our iPhone. A review of the images fills the gap in our memory and leaves us a little surprised, bewildered and amused. Below is a sampling of these images. The skull lamp is awesome. The faux porn-set and shoot was a bit of a shock. The space was beautiful. And many people danced like fools.

Somehow, we ended up in a Thai bar and restaurant on Hollywood Blvd. watching an indie rock band from Thailand perform covers at 1:30 A.M. while noshing on red-curry with vegetables.

Mexican Batman & Robin Comics

“Robin y el Murcielago” was the Spanish title for the Batman and Robin comic books series in Mexico when it was published in the mid 20th century. The literal translation is “Robin and the Batman.” In the Mexican series, Robin is the bigger hero and gets top billing. Batman appears in his usual costume but is bare-chested.
