Back in England the sun is shining and thank goodness for normality. The guns are put away, no need for them on a beautiful day like today.
A few nights ago I had the incredible pleasure of seeing Billy Zane's film "Big Kiss" which was hidden away for ten years, while studios were fighting. Los Angeles seems to be either fucking or fighting.  Nothing is calm,  the wild west is out there, I swear that is why everybody is doing Yoga and visiting some guru, the land of make believe is always trying to be good.  Anyway his film is a light comedy about a jewellery theft in the South of France.  With thefts happening so often, I always used to think that the insurance companies were behind them, in this film there were  cat burglars and a team of athletic Russians. A thoroughly enjoyable evening.  The casting is perfect and everybody looks glamorous, of course I am dying to tell you the whole story but in this case I think a little distance makes it all the more fascinating.  Billy is charming always, with his handsome looks, he is very much the leading man. I love his sister Lisa Zane who sings beautifully in my film The gun the cake and the butterfly.

I have a new favourite place to buy clothes in Los Angles, Nikki Rich Clothing. Their jackets are the best, they make you look fabulous.  I had some fabulous photographs of me wearing one of them.  His lighting is totally fabulous he also helped me with my film. The mystical Boris.
There are so many places I love in Los Angeles I shall name them here.
