Maconha, mate, samba, passionate permission to have wild fun, capoiera, hot chicks named Roberta, Ronaldinho, Pele, and gigantic booties...what is not to love about about our Brazilian bros and sisters? These guys truly know how to party and from what we hear, the party on the Queen Mary is worth the high price. A lot of cocks appearing in L.A. this wekeend, whether it's Hitch's at the Academy of Motion Picture Arts through April or the units assembled at Live in Santa Monica through Sunday.  This feels like a good weekend to take stock of how the year's been going so far, maybe plant some trees or find something else to contribute to continue making this the most kick-ass city on Earth. In any case, Pasadena is doing it doggy-style on Sunday, bring your pit or poodle, and please keep it from running all up on our shit this summer at the beach. Remember the foolish dog barks at a flying bird. Now, fly our pretties, fly!!!!!
