Koreatown

Saturday we decided to drive to Koreatown – we’d seen Anthony Bourdain’s latest CNN show and wanted to check some of the places out. We hit two of the malls, then had dinner at a place Bourdain recommended, Restaurant Dong Il Jang. We loved dinner – the food was really good and there was just […]

Santa Monica photos

We decided to go to Santa Monica to walk around and have dinner at Monsoon. The big news is that Aviva let me take her picture and post a couple – she’s lost 30 pounds and looks great! Of course, here are some pics: Translate

Photos on Sawtelle

Sawtelle in Los Angeles is a cool street – just north of the 10 is a section that has roots in the Japanese community. Aviva and I like to go there to shop and get dinner. So here are some pics I took yesterday…. Translate

A Malibu Beach (and a video of a seal)

We decided to take my mother-in-law, Lil, and one of my brothers-in-law, Brian, to a beach in Malibu (Beasti Beach to be specific). We spread the blanket and Lil and Brian laid down. Aviva and I strolled the beach. We came upon some guys looking at something in the rocks – turned out it was […]

A few photos around LA

I’ve been taking a few pictures around LA the last three weeks – I finally had time to clean them up in Photoshop; work has been really busy with year end financials, but I’ve finally gotten all that cleaned up, hopefully I’ll have more time to take pictures, work on music, and blog. So here […]

Photos from our trip to Palm Desert

We drove out to Palm Desert last week to visit with Aviva’s mom and her brother and family. We took the dogs – our dog sitter couldn’t watch our dogs at the last minute. That’s not bad – we’ve brought them before, we get a room that allows pets at the Best Western and use […]

Caravaggio and Drawing Surrealism at LACMA

We decided to spend the day at LACMA visiting the Caravaggio and Drawing Surrealism shows. Both shows were very interesting, and I took some photos of some of the works (if there wasn’t a no-photo icon, you could snap a pic). Afterwards we went to Ancient Adornments, a shop that only does piercing – Aviva […]

My first iOS 6 / iPhone 5 panorama photo (Venice Beach, Malibu)

We went to Venice Beach to check out a flea market, then went back to Malibu to have dinner at the Reel Inn, which is the best inexpensive seafood place we’ve found in the LA area. I decided to try the panorama feature of the new camera app – I think it worked well (it […]

Giant Robot Biennale and Heavenese

Yesterday we went to Little Tokyo to check out the Giant Robot Biennale at Japanese American National Museum; the show was very cool, lots of highly customized figures from artists that show and sell with Giant Robot. We also ran into a Japanese musical troop called Heavenese – they play music combining Japanese and gospel […]

Art Platform Los Angeles

Aviva and I decided to check out the Art Platform Los Angeles art fair in Santa Monica. It’s held in a few airplane hangers at the Santa Monica Airport. The show was okay, I saw a few things I liked, Aviva saw a few less that she liked (which is normal); we also checked out […]
