holy cow i'm totally going so fast--ah, f**k!


for the rest

one reason i must go back to the 323

my hair is as big as a house. the new issue of vice magazine is out and i've read most of it already, so no waiting in the lobby of the standard reading the magazine posts. bleh.

one less reason to go back to the 323

Before I beat a hasty retreat to Venice, I lived a block from The Grove, which for those of you blissfully unaware, is a behemolithic shopping centRE smack dab of an area of LA that was already chockfull of shopping areas, just south of clogged and touristy Melrose Ave., east of clogged and boutiquey La Brea, west of clogged and super-consumery La Cienega, and right next door to one-of-the-last-remaining-interesting-bits-of-old-LA, the Farmer's Market.

I boycotted The Grove for months after it opened, grumbling mightily about parking and traffic and the unearthing of the once-leisurely pace of the Farmer's Market, until I was dragged kicking and screaming to a movie there and realized that those were probably (to that point) the nicest theaters I'd been to, and that maybe it wasn't so bad, and maybe getting cocktails and food there wasn't so bad after a movie, and maybe THE APPLE STORE REALLY DID KICK ASS. So I fell. It's one of the things I miss most about my old place, unfortunately.

No more. The Apple Store opens Friday on the 3rd St. Promenade on Friday at 6pm. I am a dork.

Fuck the 323. If you live in the 323 and are over 27 or so, perhaps you should take a cold hard look at your life. Why are you clinging to the vestiges of the life you still lived when you were in your twenties? Do you like that hot, muggy, inland climate? Do you not realize that the only good things about the 323 are not reasons to live there, just reasons to drive there? (restaurants, record shopping, haircutteries, clothes, and live music)

The First Post With A Title

It's a test.

Duck Duck Grey Duck
I'm NOT crazy. People were making fun of me the other day because I insisted that in the midwest (ok, so i find out that it's only Minnesota--still, a "flyover state", big whup) kids played "Duck, Duck, Grey Duck" instead of "Duck, Duck, Goose". It's true. I win.
