It seems the local savvy at drunkdrivingattorneylosangeles.com have found the key to attracting new clients: Spamming photo pools on Flickr. I don’t know any sober people that visit Flickr nowadays, so sure why not. I hear there are a bunch of meth heads over at Google+ should they want to expand their services a bit. Don’t forget the snake oil salesmen at LinkedIn! The internet is full of opportunity!
Seriously though, do what you want to do Dr. Spamlaw, just leave Los Angeles via Cell Phone out of it.
After work Friday night, white wine, ladies opening up their— laptops together:
“A” and I check who’s writing to us on OKCupid.com to make sure there’s no over-lapping. We have different types for the most part. We have one overlap who was an attempted set up with her in real life years ago- so that’s alright.
We turn on the “anonymous browsing” <— (new band name) and read messages guys sent us. Continue reading
LA Real Estate and Relationships Partially Decoded
You know the big three: house, relationship and job. Those who have all three going well at once are miracle workers. I usually have two running successfully at a time, but often not. What to live in, who to be with, what to be when you grow up? Last week I tweeted “Dwellings/men, they’re always lacking one or two things you really want, even if they have the rest.” Someone liked it and re-tweeted it. I firmly stand by this. Let me tell you why.
I finally signed a lease on my dream spot and it has my big three: dog friendly, parking and laundry. I saw people posting housing wanted ads for October with a dog because landlords now-a-days mostly don’t allow pets. I would drive by The Silver Lake Reservoir looking at all the dogs and wondering where the *beep do they live? Continue reading
It’s Monday, the Olympics are gone. I have no idea what to watch this evening besides the full concerts playlist I’m assembling on YouTube.
Went to Kimuya for sushi. It is no longer my favorite sushi place. I don’t know what I was thinking, most of those rolls are fried. Still pretty good for nigiri. Sushi on a Monday? What would Anthony Bourdain think?
The Brentwood-looking couple in the photo above smiled at each other in a “look at these people” kinda way when we ordered a pitcher of beer with our meal. It’s Monday, we should all be celebrating the fact that we made it through it alive.
I stopped by Jerry’s Liquor Store on the way home from sushi because I wanted to visit one more time before moving out of the neighborhood. I’m not sure what happened to this place. It used to have an exotic bird at the checkout that would scare the bejesus out of me. Nowadays it looks straight out of an episode of alcohol Hoarders.
Today I got into my head that I’d like a smoking jacket. I don’t smoke, but I think I’ll need one in order to grow old gracefully. I also found a site that has everything I’ve ever wanted.
After three years of living in a one bedroom in Santa Monica, the fiancée and I found a nice little house in West LA that will allow us to walk from the kitchen to the bathroom without stepping over a treadmill, several guitars, pianos, and piles of unread books and magazines. We are pretty excited. Because of this we probably won’t be heading to Kimuya as often, which is fine, you can have it, judgmental old couple.
Some professional bloggers say you should write in your blog everyday. Clearly that is not the case for everyone.
My mom always asks me why I don’t go swimming at the beach. If my mom knew how to play videos on the internet I would send her this link:
We are all in a hurry to get to work. Maybe not all of us. Those people that read a magazine article about preparing the next day’s clothes the night before are probably fine. The rest of us are in a hurry to get to work. However, there’s no need to start everyone’s day off on a bad note by cutting people off on highway on-ramps. It’s just not cool. Also, if you’re at a light on a metered on-ramp, let the person on the left go first. Let’s get organized people, this traffic is ridiculous and it’s not getting better anytime soon. Stop cutting people off and jamming on your brakes, stop fiddling with your cell phone, and stop waiting until you’re on the highway to apply your eye makeup. You look better without all that makeup, and I look better when I’m not paying extra for car insurance because you drive a giant SUV and you like to brake at the last second, every five seconds.
First off, thanks to the people at the New LA Folk Festival for putting me on the press list so I could check this out. I had heard that Beachwood Sparks was playing and my friend Jake and I were all about seeing this show. We figured a day in nature with Beachwood Sparks would be an all-around amazing experience, and hey, if there happened to be an open bar (with price of $50 VIP ticket) well that would be fine too.
People of the internet, some days are better than others, and for those days that aren’t as good as the others, there are fish tacos and tequila shots at El Cholo.
I like this place, though I rarely come here. Outdoor patio, cool lounge inside, very homey dining area. It’s what and where Mexican comfort food should be.
A friend of mine says he saw Larry David there. If it’s good enough for Larry David I think it’s good enough for all of us.
Thanks El Cholo, I am BACK ON TRACK.

A couple weeks ago, I did a list of Signs That
He/She’s Just Not That Into You, Tech Edition
Now I bring you this:
Signs That He/She Is Too Into You
- They write poems about you based on your online dating profile, before you even meet in person.
- They want you to meet their family as the third date.
- They want you to move to the countryside with them and be organic farmers together.
I didn’t know what to expect from Portugal. The Man seeing as I hadn’t added them to my “bands to obsess over” playlist on Spotify yet, but dang, I was impressed.
The Portugalians opened with some 70′s Deep Purple/Blue Cheer type fuzz riff that I have not seen anyone pull off since Wolfmother gave it the ol’ riff rock try. I’m liking The Man’s take on it a bit more. All this fuzz, all these riffs, and songs too! Yeah it was pretty awesome. And again, hanging outside listening to live music with all the people you see at Albertsons, pretty cool. The name punctuation is confusing in blog form, but I’ll deal.
