baseball is very different in finland
if by different you mean the same but more logical given handedness of players
In 2011 I walked the Sunset Strip with a facsimile of Ruscha’s Every Building On The Sunset Strip and it was an awakening life-in-LA-affirming walk
You’re looking at [er, reading/viewing the scribblings/nonsensical photos of] T.J. Levitz’s newest “Music of Los Angeles” TA.
Now to brush up on Jascha Heifetz, Rachmaninoff, Stravinsky… (who knew they all lived in LA!!)
I can’t get over how campus-y UCLA is
Though this central wash sq-esque area could certainly do with a juggler or crazy piano guy or two
Just got an assistant stage managing (sub) job for the next two weekends. I haven’t done this since high school. But it’s going to be for a production if Sarah Ruhl’s In The Next Room (The Vibrator Play) which means it’ll be… well… stimulating. AND IT’S IN LOS ANGELES! Who said theatre was dead in LA?
(Me. And I still kind of believe it. But please let this prove me wrong, mostly so I don’t have to look into moving back to New York in a few months and the tumult that goes with that)
anonymous LA dirt graffiti
"I’m sorry, homie."
"I’m sorry, honie."
(but I kind of like the idea of it being the first one better even though it’s probably not)
Nothing quite says Los Angeles like a mediocre pastrami sandwich on a white hot dog roll at a dodger game
Oh my god the cast of The Sandlot is reuniting today at Dodger Stadium for the film’s 20th anniversary I feel so terribly, terribly advanced in age
I guess it’s kind of nice here.
In Search of a Midnight Kiss (Trailer)
500 days of summer ripped off everything that was good about In Search of a Midnight Kiss down to the way it photographed and glorified the architecture of downtown Los Angeles. Saw this movie again on TV tonight for the first time since 2007 when it came out. Man, is it good.
I just looked up the lead actor, Scoot McNairy. He kind of reminds me of Jeff Mangum somehow. Apparently he’s doing well — he just had a significant part in Argo.
LA I Love You, But You’re Bringing Me Down (or, Losing My Edge on the 405)
Losing My Edge never comes on the radio. Hell, LCD Soundsystem never even comes on the radio, not even on Sirius XM satellite radio, which I happened to be listening to this afternoon as I drove from UCLA to the beach, taking that great horror of Los Angeles horrors, the 405 freeway, for one of the last times I ever would before moving back to New York this coming Friday.
But it wasn’t really a horror. It was kind of nice. And it was a beautiful day. I had to capture it. And sing along horribly like a warbly lunatic.
