LAist Tails

Do all writers hate writing as much as I do?

I love making stuff up. I just hat ehaving to write it down coherently.

Have I said this before? I think I have.

I would really like to just post amusing pictures and amusing podcasts - even if they are amusing to only me. And the Wretched Goo of the Imagination podcasts are, I suspect, amusing,mostly, - although perhaps not exclusively - to me. I crack myself up - which is not a bad way to stay sane and healthy of the brains.

When I first met Carolyn Kellogg she had bright red hair. Whereas now ... well ...

Colored hair is good hair. Color is good.

I saw Carolyn around the local University of Southern California Alcoholics-In-Training Facility, often with her friend from Oklahoma with the very serious mohawk. I had a crush on the girl with the very serious mohawk. What was her name? Cindy? Trashula? Gorwitz? I forget. Anyone out there remember her name? I never spoke to the girl with the very serious mohawk because I was a shy youth and was afraid she would punch me in the face and then that would be that. Also, my English was not very good, what with me growing up in Ohio and all.

Carolyn has left the LAist to go further her writing grooviness in cooler climes. The LAist will now rest under the very capable editorial wings of Tony Pierce. This is good for everybody. Everybody wins. It's a win-win. I'd go as far as to say it's a win-win-win...win.

The rabbit + crow blog will be a year old in a little more than a week. There will be a special t-shirt available on that day. It's very special t-shirt - special in that it was one of the first shirts I ever wanted to print, but still - for some reason - haven't gotten around to printing it. Kind of like: the one thing I have come to California to do is to direct a feature film or two - and still I haven't gotten around to doing that. And time is growing short. This time next year I'll be in London where they frown upon that sort of thing.

This weekend I'll be going off to Arizona for a workshop of sorts, something that I expect will ... well ... will do ... something. Something will happen. It better. Or I'll be totally completely mad and stuff. I will be driving to Arizona - driving very cheaply thanks to the guys at my local Enterprise Rent-A-Car on Hillhurst Ave.

Driving long, long, long distances by myself is one of my favorite things to do, which is odd because sitting for long, long, long periods of time at a desk is one of my least favorite things to do. You'd think the body wouldn't know the difference between sitting in a car and sitting at a desk. Apparently mine does.
