to live & dine in LA

Next week I’ll be in West Hollywood for a few days, just bumming around, eating a lot of burritos. These are some of my favorite musicians, movies and things in the LA area that are making me really excited to be on the west coast.

Cheech & Chong

Growing up, this is what I thought my adult life would be like.

Keith Morris

Keith Morris can tell a story. Something that only occurred within 5 minutes time will take 1.5 hours to tell. I love Keith.

I spent my childhood writing about Tupac. Reading about Tupac. Breathing Tupac.

Rupaul’s Drag Race

Season 5, episode 6 of Untucked. That is what you watch when you start to feel really sorry for yourself and about your life.

Henry Rollins columns on LA Weekly

Once a week Henry talks about his life: colonoscopies, Ian Mackaye and playing with snakes. And the whole world loves him for it.

Agent Orange

I’ve had Agent Orange’s ‘Living in Darkness’ album on repeat for the last three years. It’s on my ipod, my iphone and on tape in my car.

Clueless

I’ve wanted to be Dee forever and ever.

Friday + Next Friday

My brother and I watched these movies on repeat. I started to think John Witherspoon was my father and Chris Tucker was my knucklehead cousin.
