I have been completely obsessed with this lately. I think the lady behind the counter at Bay Cities Italian Deli in Santa Monica thinks I’ve lost my mind. What can I say? Delicious cheesy, tomato-y, oniony, bread-y goodness, ready to eat. And at $3, it’s just about the best investment for your hard-earned cash in [...]
If you know me reasonably well, you probably know that I like to make a point of avoiding every other major pop culture phenomenon, for no particular reason other than I like to think of myself as a rebel. That’s right, I don’t have a MySpace page, and I’ve never seen Titanic. No one cares. [...]
Tsunamis are no laughing matter, but this official Venice, Playa Del Rey, Westchester Tsunami Evacuation map really blows my mind. It takes sooo many arrows to say, “Make for the nearest boulevard and head away from the beach.” If you are ever in Venice and there’s a tsunami warning, now you know what to do. [...]

Another weekend, which means I’ve got more second-rate iPhone pics of local street art from my early morning stroll around Venice! I spotted this big Buddha poster, wheatpasted over what was a very short-lived Buffmonster mural on Electric Avenue. I don’t know who did it, but I like it! The line work is great, and [...]
Sam Flores has a show opening at Subliminal Projects here in LA tomorrow.

These posters just went up here in Venice, and it just goes to show that someone somewhere involved in marketing for Vaustralia (Virgin’s Australian brand) knows what they’re doing. I noticed the distinctive artwork of New Zealander-in-Australia Reg Mombassa (aka Chris O’Doherty), before I noticed that nice, low roundtrip airfare. While he isn’t a household name [...]
