10 Reasons To Love Supercar Sunday

Here in LA, your extraordinary is our ordinary.  Palm trees & 80 degrees in January may equal vacation to you, but to us, it's winter. A celebrity sighting may completely spin you out, but to us she's just another skinny bitch with Botox.  But this doesn't mean we're jaded (NY has that down), it's just that LA seems to democratize the things that other places hold sacred. Nowhere else is this more evident than...

LA Auto Show Commandments

November in this town means a few things– airports more packed than the Barney's sample sale, skies clearer than a studio back drop, and roads emptier than a post police chase freeway.  It is also the time of year that Angelinos come together to worship our collective god– the automobile. As the self-appointed high priestess of this radical religion, I feel that it is my divine duty to pronounce the following commandments for this year's High...

Digital License Plates: Mama’s Top 5

California has its flaws, but being progressive is something we do well. Sure, we have no infrastructure, we're crippled by debt and you could rest a small continent in our economic divide, but we do lots of stuff before your state has even thought of it.  Case in point, the bill that passed in Sacramento this week for a digital license plate program.  According to lawmakers, they'll save at least $20 million in postage...

Come To Jesus: Top 5 Popemobile Alternatives

Last week, Pope Francis took possession of the illustrious 2013 Popemobile.  Manufactured in by Mercedes Benz in Alabama (a whole 'nother type of blasphemy) , this vehicle has the unique distinction of being the ugliest Popemobile ever:   And believe me, people, the competition was tough.  Shortly afterwards, the Pope released a statement urging his disciples to drive "humble" cars (yawn).  He also professed "it hurts me when I see a priest or a nun with the...

Bumper Stickers: Rear Window Into The Soul

I dunno who said, “Eyes Are The Window Into The Soul.” It was like Jesus, Shakespeare or Leonardo Di Vinci, maybe Leonardo Di Caprio, somebody important.  Anyway, that person was never stuck on La Cienega for 20 minutes waiting for the light to change while some d-bag in a Porsche pouted on his cell phone about blowing out his $500 tire.  Because if he was, he would know what I...

Only In LA: Car Fool Lane

New Yorkers are notorious for being a-holes behind the wheel.  Angelinos are notorious for being a-holes because of their wheels. In fact we have so many terrible cars, that they should have their own lane, parking spaces and support groups, because if being an a-hole isn’t a handicap, I dunno what is. Here are some examples of LA’s biggest Aholes : #1. Aholes Over Personalize Look it’s Simba, or Julie Taymor,...
