📸 | My Trip to Los Angeles, Days 1 & 2

As most of you already know, I recently left the cold, wet, dour grayness of New York City to bask in the bright, warm, sunshiny glory of Los Angeles. Oh my, I had a fucking wonderful time.

And so, in this and in upcoming blog posts, I will share with you my adventures in El Pueblo de Nuestra Señora la Reina de los Ángeles del Río Porciúncula, aka the City of Angels, aka La La Land.

🎥 | Video: “JFXXLA: The Charm” Trailer

As you already know, I’ve taken to creating fake movie trailers with iMovie, and I’ve shared two of them with you so far: The Last Happy Hour and The MTA Sucks.

My pitiful kitchen

OK, I see you’re hung up on the name, and we’ll get to that later. But here’s the thing — this dish is relatively quick, tasty, and, best of all, easy. I had a hankerin’ for it, and I was gonna prepare it. And in this post, I’m gonna teach you how to prepare it, too.
