Semi-IT: watching Bill Hader break is one of the great joys of current-day SNL. (And, frankly, one of the most common ones!)

hey, was in LA over the weekend. drank for three straight days. here's where we went

Jumbos Clown Room
Red Lion Biergarten
Phillipes French Dip
Some "Tiki" Bar that had no kitsch appeal but the best rum drinks, i cannot remember the name. completely non-descript building
Walked around Chinatown, i think (anyway it was around Phillipes). there was an open air market there, ended up having good Margaritas
Bought Jamesons at a CVS which cannot be done in Ohio

had a great time.

Adam, if you're still looking for a house, a pretty nice one popped up on LA.Curbed.com (look for baby blue bungalow). Just north of York near Ave 49.

Can anyone here show me an out of town day/overnight trip that is outside of all of the obvious Joshua Tree/San Diego/Santa Barbara - type places? Would prefer somewhere chill as I have been working flat out these last few months. We used to go up to Idyllwild and loved it up there, looking for something new. Camping is not really our thing but out of the way places are fine.

downtown Artwalk devolving into a cops vs Occupy L.A. near-riot right now at 5th and Spring, with Occupy deciding to step in after past Artwalks where people were busted for writing on the sidewalks in chalk. Which is stupid but this feels like an RIP artwalk event.

pics and footage are p insane

occupy l.a. needs to reassess its priorities w/r/t what it wastes time protesting.

they're doing pushups in front of the cops

btw I was driving on like the 10W around like 4:45, and traffic on the 10E was stopped because 3 cup cars had blocked traffic. about 30 ft in front of the cop cars was an unmarked white van that was stopped. The cop cars had their doors open and like 5-6 cops were standing behind the doors like a barricade, all of them w/ their gun drawn, it was a p crazy thing for me to pass, I've seen some police shit but like, never a line of cops w/ guns out
