The quiet of 4 a.m. even in Los Angeles Taking a break after a fight with a friend, that could last 48 years. Humans don’t know how good they smell. Stop with the perfume. Coyotes taste like chicken. Everything looks different when you’re jumping rooftop to rooftop. People really should stop saying “Bite me” and [...]

I am trying desperately to catch TML up to 2014 without stressing myself out (yeah right), and i’m told an instagram is MUST. So: (I’m told if you click on that badge you’ll be routed to my “insta” account.) p.s. there is little else that makes me feel as old as technology.

Growing up in Northern California, I always heard about the [...]
