Life in LA @ 07:30 am

Bruja and the Snow-Cone Man.

And, even though aaronjv already mentioned it... Chewbacca arrested in Hollywood. Fortunately, not for soliciting sex from a she-male. Props to the Times staff for the hed, a correct spelling of Wookiee and the important detail that the incident was "witnessed by Superman."

Just for the record, the toppled crane on the 405.

Music to USC athletes' ears: "You come to my class and work, and I see you want to learn, I'll give you an A. I see some lazy ass, coming late all the time, acting like he doesn't care, I won't give him an A. I'll give him a B." (Incidentally, it seems that Tartan School wishes to adopt a similar grading philosophy. Dr. Pookie talked my ear off about it last night.)

Boy, the Boston Aqua Team Whatever Thing Bomb scare was dumb. There's no way entertainment-savvy Angelenos could ever be so dumb.

What I find interesting about the USC-LATC story is that under the transfer agreements typically in place between these institutions, USC has no right to deny transferability. Those athletes have a legitimate complaint, even if the class offered that one time might not have been up to a certain level of rigor.

That Chewbacca story was great.

I can see how a plastic box with wires in it can be mistaken for a bomb (LA Times boxes), but not a cartoon character. Well, NOW I'll be watching out for them, because if *I* were a terorist (and I'm not--hi NSA), I'd make real bombs that look like cartoon characters.

I recall that after 9/11, people were freaking out over paper bags left on the side of buildings (it was a guy's lunch).

So that's the world we live in now? We can't exact diplomatic policy that ensures that groups of people aren't out to get us? (There will always be the random psycho, I concede.)

Maybe if everyone had a job, they'd be too busy for this stuff...

Damn you Mike!

I'm trying to find some photo examples for the concept artist I'm working with, but when I Google image search with the words "monster doorway", look what I get (the top two on the right).

Don't blame me -- blame the Larpies!
