  • Third Best Comic Book Store Ever

    While I was visiting Washington D.C. last week, my sister and I wandered around Georgetown a bit. In so doing one of the places we went was a place my sister had never been — Big Planet Comics. Now, I’ve lived all over. And I’ve been to a lot of comic book stores. My compliment…

  • Sign O’ The Times

    One of the funniest, saddest things I’ve seen in a while is Bill Rini’s photos from Internet World 2002 in Los Angeles.

  • a great simple design

    I really like this site’s design: c-level. The colors are fun and rich. The faux layers under Los Angeles make for a fun, easy to understand interface. Clean and nice. Gives me some ideas for future projects, certainly. (via Jeff’s Loungespot)

  • Left Las Vegas

    I am happy to be back at home, and away from the hyper-world funhouse of Las Vegas. I think Jenny is glad to be back home as well.

Some of these…

  • Especially Nina Brosh…

    Especially Nina Brosh. These Nina Brosh photos sort of remind me of Blade Runner – evoking early 20th Century, but also spun in a peculiar, futuristic manner. Blade Runner is supposedly set in Los Angeles, 2019 So how close are we to the bleak world of Blade Runner? We’re in a dystopia already. Just not…

  • Made an acquisition today …

    Made an acquisition today — L.A. Confidential — [amazon] — went to Tower Records, didn’t have any taste for music, but L.A. Confidential is an amazing movie that never fails to delight. I’m a sucker for all things Los Angeles, and that’s a big part of my pleasure at the movie. The meat of the…
