I went to a blacksmithing class on Sunday. It was a letter opener class, and there were only three of us there, which was nice because it made the class fairly leisurely. The instructor showed us the basics of the project, and then turned us loose in the forge while she walked around and offered comments and suggestions. This was the second class that I’ve taken at Adams Forge, and I really enjoy it. Hopefully I’ll be able to attend a few open forge nights in the near future.
Suicide Girls burlesque was ok, but the show was really only a few performers rotating through multiple acts, so it got repetitive fairly quickly. Additionally, they really went all in on the cultural parody. I saw performances poking fun at Harry Potter, Disney, Star Wars, Donnie Darko (?!), Michael Jackson, etc. It felt like they were trying too hard to be clever and ended up failing. Plus, downtown LA is kinda sketchy after dark.
On the other hand… titties.
