you've gotta hand it to fate, life is anything but boring in los angeles. earlier this evening i encountered two very different extremes interviewing first-up, coppola descendant jason schwartzman who is basically a nice kid with a bucketload of talent and good manners. an hour later i promised a friend i would grant an event some coverage so i headed to a bar in westwood and lo and behold, after years of oohing and ahhing at her presence in pictures, i finally met her in the flesh (well, so-to-speak), amanda lepore. i didn't really get a concise answer to any of my questions in a good ten minute slot speaking with her, but she did tell me one thing which i recall off the top of my head. "i am working on an album of rap, disco and punk rock songs which keeps getting delayed" she said. "there is one song called 'champagne' and another one, maybe my favorite so far, which is called 'all i want to do is get my nails done.'"
