Dude Or Dbag: Attention Whores

Los Angeles is, by its nature, filled with extroverts.  Between the actors, the musicians and the unfulfilled dreams, LA is a place where ‘LOOK AT ME’ is our cultural default.  Luckily for me, when this phenom meets LA’s car obsession, the results are magnificent. Or as Einstein so deftly put it: Attention Whores + Cars = MHM² Of course, not all of these attention-grabbing displays...

Being a father in Los Angeles is not for the faint of heart. While women have to worry about boob jobs, Botox, vaginal rejuvenation & how many times their kids will need rehab, LA dads don’t really get off easily either.  First of all, it’s virtually impossible to be special. Your father’s famous? Big deal, so is Siri’s. Rich? Right, tell that to that the...
