Something to do this afternoon: Part II

In the mood to do some unusual holiday shopping? Why not stop off at a special Natural History Auction by the IM Chait Gallery/Auctioneers in Beverly Hills?

For the ultimate Hitchcock fan you could be the owner of Alfred Hitchcock’s skull, Lot # 235, well, a skull he owned; not the one on his head, seen in the photo below:

Some unusual paleontological items:
* Dinosaur Egg with an embryonic dinosaur skeleton preserved inside
* Virtually complete Ceratopsian dinosaur skeleton
* Unique “Flying Dinosaur” skeleton, Pterosaur, from the Jurassic Period
* Skull of an extinct Sabre-Toothed Cat

View the catalog

Don’t want to get dressed and walk out the door to attend? Watch/bid online via eBayLiveAuctions.

(I’ll be there… I’m the one sitting behind the computer monitor and screaming out bids from internet bidders.)

Something to do this afternoon: Part I

Last night, I attended the annual holiday concert of the Gay Men’s Chorus of Los Angeles (GMCLA)… program entitled “A Touch of Brass.”

As usual, the men gave a wonderfully musical and entertaining show. The highlight? The return of Phil Hettema’s “Foamettes” (large-sized puppets that come to life with the help of blacklight and an army of puppeteers) who “perform” T’was the Night Before Christmas in a way you’ve never seen in before.

Today is your last chance to catch this awesome performance at the Alex Theatre in Glendale at a 3pm matinee.
