We are about to see some confused hipsters walking the streets of Williamsburg and Silver Lake. Why? Because Pabst Brewing Company, maker of PBR, is moving its headquarters from Woodbridge, Illinois to Los Angeles. More
The Academy Awards are a magical time. Perhaps Ricky Gervais summed up the spirit of the evening best on his blog: “It’s going to be a night of the most privileged people in the world being told how brilliant they are and thanking God for loving them more than ugly poor foreigners.”
Indeed! But as beloved as this awards show is the world over, you know where the worst place to be during Oscar time is? L.A. Now — don’t get me wrong. I love this cozy little town.

It’s raining in Los Angeles, and that means that all anyone is talking about, anywhere, is the weather. It’s the lead-in for news stories. It’s the only appropriate topic of conversation at cocktail parties, none of which are happening because of the rain. It’s the cause of car accidents, power outages and rampant fear. Basically, all hell is breaking loose here in the City of Angels, and so, I would like to take what may be my last day on earth to talk about footwear.

L.A. residents take a lot of heat for our tendency to wear winter clothes during the months that the temperature drops below 70 degrees. “It’s not even cold!” cries the rest of the country, as you dig yourselves out of … More
We all know that city life has its perks, and it has its drawbacks. For instance…
Perk: 24-hour convenience stores
Drawback: 24-hour convenience stores designated by underground drug lords as retail shops
Along with these perk and drawbacks come a constant stream of neighbors, some of whom we know, but many of whom we don’t. Often, those neighbors begin to get loud, and when they do, I am overwhelmed with the urge to open my window and yell at them to STFU. More
As you may have heard, this week Los Angeles hit record highs of nearly 115 degrees. And let me be the first to tell you: it’s bullshit. But by having the following ten things on hand, at least you’ll be … More
In keeping with my obsession with fall, I am going to rock this necklace to pretend it’s raining. In reality, we are having a brutally, unseasonably hot weekend that’s reaching up into the 100′s in Los Angeles. But not in … More
