  • Phone friends across from me on the NCTD Sprinter

    ‪So enjoyable to rework drawings from several years ago. Procreate, again.‬

  • Lumatic Shut Down, Fast

    Following up on The Failures of the iOS6 Maps Application in which I hoped that Lumatic would be able to provide maps with transit to San Diego. Well, they did, for a while. I used it several times. Then, 2 days ago, they shut down, immediately. Here’s the email: from: The City Maps iPhone app…

  • 2pac’s Pal on the 20x South Bus

    being a list of my tweets from last night THIS bus has a fellow claiming 2Pac as a friend and he’s alive. Arguing with fellow saying “Nig is DEAD.” They have opposing choruses too. Q:“Why you with a crazy girl?!” A:“Dude, I’m 36. She’s 21. She’s playing MY game.” This dialogue is GOLD. Mamet on…

  • Scene from Greyhound Bus Station, Los Angeles, Monday, 4:30am

    I tell the cabbie “Union Station.” It’s a solid 2 miles. Too far a walk for how tired I am, and not really convenient on local buses. “I hate Mayor Villarigosa” declares the cabbie at the Bus Station. “Because he made the FlyAway service, and nobody takes cabs to the airport anymore.” “Well, don’t you…

  • Lessons About San Diego Transit

    When it rains, more people seem to be on the bus. The buses I took to and from work today were packed. People who have to transfer rely on the timing of the buses, and as transit is different in the rain, people miss their connections, and get surly, and are on buses they did…
