its amazing to me how many people in LA stay in their safe little neighborhoods

beautiful house

and rarely take advantage of the never-ending breadth of diversity and discovery

that this amazing metropolis has to offer

not a through street

sure they may convince themselves that they get out but seriously

do we have to make an LA bingo game to show you how few squares you can scratch off

beyond the 5 mile radius of your boring little comfort zone?

metro building

walked down Sunset and noticed the big church was setting up for a huge outdoor summer party

shit statue

took the red line to union station to transfer to the gold line

and noticed that theres always someone sitting on the shit statue

or at least thats what i call it because it looks like a pile with weird corn in it

UGLIEST ART IVE EVER SEEN IN MY LIVE LONG LYFE

great view

soon forgot it as we got out of the station and headed towards chinatown which is beautiful from the elevated rail

phone lady

many forget that the busblog is named that because this blog started when i was commuting via the bus,

something that gave me an endless amount of interesting stories to report.

for example, this very pretty lady walked on the train yesterday and looked at this guy and said

do you have a cell phone i can borrow?

highland park metro station

she had a short shirt on which was wonderful because her stretch marks were quite pronounced

she was so confident in pretty much everything that she did. it was mildly inspirational.

unsurprisingly she was on the borrowed phone for about twice as long as what seemed comfortable

or necessary. but again it was the LA public transpo not being the slightest bit boring.

dollar tree

Dollar Tree wasn’t boring me

coldest beer in town

Cervezas were muy fría

collective

saw a young lady in an iron maiden tshirt pushing a woman in a wheelchair right into this dispensary
