4 things about Los Angeles
Four Jobs I've Had In My Life in LA:
Set Lighting Technician
Bartender at a celeb-infested night club
Platform model for a hair product company (this entails standing on a stage in front of hundreds of people at a hair show while being given a terrible haircut and being expected to smile)
I don't know if this counts, but once I applied to be a tour guide at Universal Studios. They turned me down because I was too cynical.
Four Movies About LA I Could Watch Over And Over:
Four Places I've Lived All Over L.A. (With Food Memories From Each):Culver City: Childhood memories of standing in line at Tito's Taco's. I could never get my tacos fast enough. I loved those tacos so much as a child, and now they make me sick.
San Fernando Valley: There was (and presumably still is) a really fancy hillside restaurant called "The Odyssey". It was the first time I ever went to a fancy place, and it was always an occasion, although I don't really remember the food.
Silverlake-ish: The food booths at the Sunset Junction Street Fair every August - bands, crafts, everyone I knew was there, and despite the fact that it was boiling hot, TONS of great food.
Pre-gentrification Hollywood: Those ratty (and so very wonderful) Thai places along Hollywood Boulevard. They were all great and dirt cheap.
Four LA-Themed Shows I Love(d) To Watch:
Four Places I Would Vacation At In LA:
