Odd Nerdrum show at Copro Nason Gallery

Aviva and I drove to Santa Monica specifically to check out a show of Odd Nerdrum’s work – we saw his work at a New York gallery years ago and really love it. And this show didn’t disappoint. The show at Copro Nason Gallery at Bergamot Station featured six pieces by Odd Nerdrum and a […]

Museum of Natural History in LA

We’ve had a quiet Thanksgiving this year. We had lunch at a place that does dim sum in the Valley, A&W BBQ Seafood Restaurant. They do dim sum til 2:30P and you need to try it if you’re here – they server it Hong Kong style with metal carts that are pushed through the room. […]

The canals of Venice (California)

We’ve lived here over 6 years and still haven’t seen a lot of California (yet). So we decided to check out the canals of Venice, CA. We took the dogs, they had a terrific time smelling everything. The original canals were designed by Abbot Kinney, one of the early developers of Venice – the ones […]

The #IceBucketChallenge at DIRECTV

We’ve started a new leadership program to take forward our award-winning F-12 effort (Fail Fast, Fail Fearlessly). One of our team learned about the ALS ice bucket challenge and asked us to join her – some of us agreed. I’m there in the video – the fat old guy one in from the front left.

More photos, Tagine and Aviva

Last week we visited Bergamot Station and saw a show I liked at TAG Gallery. The artist used an app called Waterlogue, so I downloaded it and played with it at dinner last night – we went to Tagine to celebrate my birthday on Friday. They didn’t have authentic tagine, and the food was very […]

Made In LA 2014

Aviva and I decided to have an art day yesterday, so we went to the Hammer Museum which is part of UCLA; this was my first time at this gallery. It’s very nice, modern, clean. We ate lunch at the cafe – very interesting eclectic menu; I had eggs and chick peas, and a drink […]

Chinatown in Los Angeles (photos)

Aviva and I decided to visit Chinatown; it’s always interesting, lots of tourist crap and some more interesting things. We found some clothes we liked, and fit us (which is a bit unusual – most of the clothes are for tiny people). And we had Vietnamese for dinner at Via Cafe. As usual, I took […]
