Broke, Dorky & Smokin’ Hot in LA

In the Bay Area, geeks are powerful. Even those who aren’t happily ensconced in their post-IPO mansions and banging Russian supermodels are rocking pocket protectors and Coke bottle glasses with no shame.  This is because in twenty minutes, their start-up is going public and they’re going to be… you guessed it… banging Russian supermodels.

Dude Or Douchebag: Doggie Style

Dogs rule LA. No joke.  Runyon Canyon has concurrently the best dog walking AND the best star spotting; adopting mutts has replaced adopting African babies and PETA meetings have displaced AA as the hot industry networking destination.  That’s cool, Mama loves me some dogs.  Especially like this: This is one happy animal– his driver is clearly sporty (the 4Runner doesn’t lie) and the dog’s chillin’...

Or maybe it’s that our government is so dysfunctional that it doesn’t have time to get around to it. I mean we all know that Arnold has had better things to do:...

But before I can roll my eyes, a beam of light shines onto the driver side and I realize, the person behind the...

Yo Go, Mustang Mama

I saw this bad ass Mama on La Cienega last night. Love it! Her sticker says “Under Construction”– too cool.
