Stevio...LA LA Lovin' It?

I'm British-born Chinese from Bristol, UK. I’m LA-based. I’m a hip hop aficionado. After 15 years in London I moved to LA to pursue a new career and outlook on life.

Back in the 80s I was a DJ. In the 90s I contributed to the world's first street style exhibition at London's Victoria & Albert Museum. In 2011, I had my first interviews published. Today, I’m keeping busy with music, art, photos and writing.

Notorious R.O.N.

Ron Jeremy says "Happy US Mother's Day!" I've never seen any of this legend's films, but I did see a sad documentary on how he was trying to break into mainstream Hollywood...but was relegated to B-movies.

So, on the eve of his latest R-rated horror comedy "One Eyed Monster" (yep, straight to the trailer below,) Thrillist asked the adult film vet where his favorite spots are when he gets the munchies. Here's his list.

Best Pizza: D'Amores
"Tiny place, big service and amazing zah", says Ron of this thin-crust shop, which ships water in from Massachusetts to achieve its unique flavor, which frankly, is just pizzare.

Best Ethnic Food:
Brent's Delicatessen
"I know a little something about hot tongue, and they serve it up".

Best Nice Meal:
"It’s got amazingly phenomenal Italian food and the waiters sing; they hire waiters who are actually really good singers."

Best Happy Hour:
Clipper Club Lounge at The Airtel Plaza
"Lotta great hors d’ouvres, and reasonably priced drinks"

Best place to take a "regular girl"
Saddle Peak Lodge

419 Cold Canyon Rd, Calabasas; 818.222.3888
"It's got a very romantic vibe there, but do NOT bring your date if she's a vegetarian. Of course, if you love the Lodge [and therefore need to break up], you can always drop her using my favorite excuse: 'It's not you, it's meat'."

Best "Hidden Secret": Sushi Don
4816 Laurel Canyon Blvd, Studio City; 818.762.8720
From the Sasabune sushi master comes this tiny strip-mall rawfishery, with "the exact same fish but for a lot less money."

Side note With the economy taking everyone on a ride some homeowners are looking for inventive ways to create cashflow by offering their houses as sets for feature films, commercials and even adult movies.

“We are getting a lot of calls,” said Joseph Darrell, Joe Darrell Location Service. “They say, ‘Can you help me to bring a production to my home, because I have trouble making my payments.’”

How much? So what can you expect to get paid? The day-rate for a TV production could be as high as $3,000 which experts say is about *half* of the monthly outgoings?! Are you kidding? My outgoings are never over $1,500, but I guess I don't have a maid service and a 90210 zipcode ;0
