113. NHS

i like free health care. it's a smart thing. and i love that NHS in UK is a big part of everyone: i just heard two songs in a row where they mentioned the NHS; nasty crew with take you out and houseboat by camera obscura. i would also take the opportunity to recommend the world to listen to the band ...

tonight i was out for the first time in SF and it was great. it was like a mixture between swedish metropolis, the bicycle courier bar on manhattan and some cheesy britpop club in london. after a pitcher of beer i found myself writing the word (and name) jackie on my fore arm and it's still there. i guess it had ...

98. downtown thoughts and sights

LA is weird. i have said it before and i'll say it again, and again. one thing that struck my mind today was the question, 'why do LA have a downtown with skyscrapers?' i mean, there are no lack of space really, so why build skyscrapers when you can build a huge one story mall much cheaper? i guess it ...
