This Is Los Angeles
My first post to what hopefully will be a more dedicated approach to reviews and perspectives on art of all mediums.
Obviously, as a pretentious and egotistical jerk, I begin with one of my own photos. This was taken as I left the first ever Comikaze in Downtown LA. A quick glance to my left and I happen to notice everything all at once, and that there was a bit of LA in every corner; clear blue sky, palm trees, commerce and a parking lot. John Lennon once famously summarized LA as "just a big parking lot where you buy a hamburger for the trip to San Francisco.", and at times it's damn near impossible to argue with that. Yet...I can't help but feel that it's where I need to be. She's a mysterious and sometimes dangerous girl, but she's my lady.
This journal is a first, and the con was a first, and tonight...at midnight, I hope that this is a good beginning.
