Only In LA: Automotive Homage

Here in LA, we do some freaky stuff.  Perhaps you've heard.  Fill our faces with botulism, pump up our boobs with salt water and vaccuum our thighs.  Delicious.   Another odd Angelino phenomenon, particularly in the recent past, is to honor our loved ones with a window decal.  First it was the happy family: Awww..so cute.  But then, as people started dying off, we started paying tribute to them by...

Freak of the Week: Saab Girl

A few weeks ago, I went to the amazing Motor4Toys car show in Woodland Hills.   Featuring over 5,000 cars and collecting over 50,000 toys for the needy, this a great event for a great cause.  Here’s a little glimpse: But being the greedy, selfish whore that I am, I wasn’t in it for the charity.  Immediately upon arrival, I swiftly tossed my unwrapped toy into the pile and began...

LA Auto Show: The Good, The Bad, The WTF ’13

What happens to these disheartened dreamers?  Well, most simply move to the 909. Others stay in LA to engage in endless plastic surgery or become relentless stage parents. Sometimes, luckily...

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...

Freak of the Week: Mr. Unimog

Quick Quiz:  What's 6,000 pounds, has five wheels and eats H3s for breakfast? Give up? It's this: The Mercedes Unimog, which, for lack of a better comparison, is the European equivalent of the American Hummer.  (I can smell the hate mail already…) And if you're a guy named David, a commercial director and Unimog enthusiast, it is also the location of your Thursday office:     You see,...
