The Best Thing That Ever Happened To Me In My Whole Life

10 November 2011

Dear Diary,

Have you ever been so excited about something that you thought your little hummingbird heart might explode? Well, I think I probably drank too much coffee this morning because I feel like I’m going to spontaneously combust with excitement about the Hedi Slimane exhibit that is opening tomorrow at the MOCA annex at the Pacific Design Center in West Hollywood. Slimane is hands-down my favorite photographer in the history of time. I just love the world he represents, where everyone is a crazy 90z heroin addict musician, everyone is skeleton thin, and they live in lush beautiful environments surrounded by books, art, and wide open spaces. The opening is tomorrow from 6-9, and it’s quite possible that I will be there wearing a Hedi Slimane t-shirt, a Hedi Slimane hat, and some limited edition Hedi Slimane Converse. (Not really).

A lot of people who live in West Hollywood have no idea that there is a MOCA annex there. My favorite thing about it is that it’s free and small. Thus, when you’re fiending for some art, you don’t have to go all the way downtown to get a small dose. For those of you who have never noticed it the MOCA annex, it looks like this:
