    making tea for the bbc 

    sometimes the things you have to do gets postponed

    and the things you want to do receive a new life.

    but theres a storm on the horizon. theres darkness approaching.

    this computer, gurgles in the morning just like my benz which hiccups sometimes when it starts.

    death is looming and i wish there was a way i could prevent it but alas.

    my new years resolution will be difficult: im not going to fight people on the internet for a year

    and im not going to flip drivers off when they run yellow lights when it’s clear that im trying to turn left.

    im not an angry man. nor entitled. but for some reason i automatically expect people to drive courteously in los angeles.

    and i expect people to have civilized discourse on the Twitter.

    am i insane?

    i am insane.

    so currently i wage bizarre little battles with my fellow humans in situations where they act the way people do.

    most recently i posted something on a facebook group about my little part of LA and some woman said that the corner that i was referring to was “highly ghetto”

    and right now i want to rip her into shreds because yes there are people from all over who frequent that corner, and some of them are not super rich and and and

    that’s what makes LA so wonderful.

    do you think we would have taco culture without brown people? do you think we’d have hip hop culture without black people? does the fact that a corner doesnt have three coffee shops mean that it’s less-than some corner that does?

    when i first moved to LA i got corrected a lot by the young women in my life who told me that i was not thinking before i spoke. and i appreciated those corrections.

    but as the clash say in career opportunities
    Do you wanna make tea at the BBC?
    Do you really wanna be a cop?

    i dont really wanna be a cop.
