All in all I liked L.A., I hated its public transportation system and general city planning is shit, but all in all it was an interesting town. Just like any other place I have ever lived, from New York, to St. Louis, to here in S.F.; it starts off so shiny and new and full of amazing wonder, then slowly fades to fact of life day to day monotony. Although I don’t think I could ever live there or ever get used to seeing people I had previously only seen on television or my computer screen up close and in person. I also don’t think I could live there without seriously learning Spanish and possibly Korean. The weather (much like the traffic) is everything you have ever heard. Two months and it didn’t rain once, the sun shown ever day down on beautiful palm trees and unbelievable attractive women in skimpy clothes. There were defiantly moments that felt like a David Lee Roth cover of a Beach Boys song! The sheer expansiveness of the city was daunting at times. It felt like L.A. was just a blanket name they gave to five cities which met at the center. Continue reading Fast times in L.A.
I’ve walked quite a bit, down Sunset, Hollywood, Wilshire. I’ve walked through Chinatown, Japan-town, and Toy Town! I’ve seen the Tar Pits from that one episode of Futurama, but I didn’t find Pauly Shores head. I walked around the LAMCA but unfortunately didn’t have enough money to go in an see the Tim Burton exhibit. Hopefully I will before I leave! I’ve ventured out to Echo Park and looked at some ducks and swans, and a ton of trash on the ground. Found an enclave of hipsters, and some beautiful graffiti. And yesterday I saw a very old Peter Murphy play with his man boobs for free a in-store performance at the L.A. Amoeba which is actually bigger than the one in the Haight.

Sunday morning I started my journey right near the big Scientology church. I stood out in front for a minute hoping to see Tom Cruise or Samuel L. Jackson. I have yet to see any big name celebrities, but that’s okay I’m sure I’d want o punch half of them if I did. I have also not seen any porn stars, but that’s probably for the best as well seeing as how I’d probably rape them. After trekking the length of Sunset I walked back up Hollywood Blvd. tracing the names on the Stars until they became irrelevant, then wandered down into Thai town until I stumbled upon Jumbo’s Clown Room.

Will Smiths brat doesn’t even learn Karate-he learns Kung-Fu! From Jakie Fucking Chan!!! No less! What Karate wasn’t good enough for the Fresh Prince’s kid? It was good enough for Ralph Machio! Despite the ringing endorsement from my little sister (who isn’t old enough to remember the original) I can’t believe this Disney homogenized garbage raked in $56,000,000! So of course they’re already talking sequel and everything I loved as a child will be pillaged and plundered! Continue reading Hollywoods Continous Raping of My Childhood
