Graphic Of The Day: Gardens Near Deauville France
Tonight marks the first official day of The Sunset Strip Music Festival! There will be awesome concerts happening tonight and tomorrow at all the music venues located along the strip with the main festival and street closure (featuring headliners Mötley Crüe, Bush, and Public Enemy) happening on Saturday. And…. if that wasn’t exciting enough, it’s just been announced that Mötley Crüe will be bringing the “360 Vertical Drum Roller Coaster” to the party! Sounds crazy, right? Seriously, you have to watch the video to understand just how crazy this thing really is:
There are still a few tickets left for Saturday’s festival so it’s not too late to see the drum roller coaster in action. Click here for tickets, line-ups, and info.
The Sunset Strip Music Festival (SSMF) is a little over a week away but The Standard, Hollywood just couldn’t wait that long. The Standard, Hollywood has partnered up with other Sunset Strip businesses to bring you The SSMF Kick-Off Pool Party. The Roxy, The Comedy Store, Rudy’s Barbershop, The House of Blues Sunset, The Key Club, Soundcheck Hollywood, and more will be parking it at the pool this Saturday, August 13th, and will be giving away concert tickets, merch, passes to the SSMF, room nights, and all kinds of other goodies to keep you rockin’. There will be plenty of drink specials to keep you “hydrated” and we’ve arranged for some live acoustic sets from Cowboy & Indian, Rusty Maples and special guest John Bennett doing a set of acoustic covers by your favorite bands playing this year’s SSMF! Because, who doesn’t love a good acoustic version of a Public Enemy song?
This event is guest list only & space is limited, so RSVP ASAP to firstname.lastname@example.org

For my next Q&A in the “Don’t Question Stan” series of titillating interviews, I bring to you the world famous Director, Producer and Screenwriter, Joel Schumacher! Don’t ask how. It’s just what Stan does.
Joel has been a very dear friend to Stan and to all of us here at The Standard Hotels, as well as The Mercer and The Chateau, and it was only befitting that he be the next to face the wrath of my interrogation! Well, you know what I mean…
Few people realize that you directed the video for one of my favorite songs, “Letting The Cables Sleep” by Bush. What do you think letting the cables sleep means…because I have absolutely no idea?
Well, Gavin Rossdale and I had become friendly, and we had rooms next to each other at The Mercer Hotel when he had written that song. He came into my room and played it for me. He explained to me that it was about communication.
The band had either a friend or a band member who was gay and had AIDS. The friend would never tell anyone, but they all knew. All the extended friends and family knew, but he wouldn’t admit it. So when he died, Gavin was heart broken because had his friend just talked to him, he would have known that no one would have cared and that there was nothing to hide.
Gavin was heart broken. The song is about communication. Very poetic. Letting the cable sleep seems cautionary….letting communication sleep. The only cables I can connect with communication would be all the cables that we use FOR communication.
I decided to do this video with a Last Tango in Paris meets Don’t Look Now idea, and the only thought that I put into it was an artistic way to show his message…two strangers in a room and having intimate sex and not speaking to each other. And then when he runs after her on the street, she signs to him because she doesn’t have the gift of speech…
