Yes, it's S.F., home of the hipsters and fixed-gear bike aficionados. I know its semi-pretentious but I can't help it; these are nice.

Rainy Friday

Waiting for summer sunshine already...exciting things to come. I just know it.

Raining now. Listening to Miles Davis. Perfect soundtrack.

Gentlemens! Don't forget about your ladies. It's Valentine's day tomorrow!

Fumi Mini Nakamura

Reading thru nylon magazine today and discovered a cool artist.
I googled the artist and by coincidence she happened to be from the Bay Area (well Japan, really, but she graduated from San Jose State). Fumi Mini Nakamura.
Really nice stuff:

Guys and Dolls.
I tried being open minded and giving these people the benefit of the doubt, so to speak. but I can't help but be creeeeeeeeped out. I swear at some moments I had to look away.
A crazy documentary of sorts. It's the reality version of Lars and the Real Girl!

Is it lame if I get this? It's got my initials on it!
It also has "PINK" on the hood. And I don't even know what a "Sooner" is. I just think it's cool whenever I see them playing on tv with my last name all over their helmets. Pretty SWEET.
Maybe these make more sense.

wednesdays are

my hell days.

neverending class until 5pm. then in my attempts to get home at rush hour i fight the crowd waiting to board the N muni train, which takes another 30 minutes or more because all of them are full for a few cycles. AGH.

on the bright side, im learning how to sew on an industrial sewing machine! they are INCREDIBLY fast. i'll be working in a sweatshop in no time!

Top Restaurants of 2008

Anyone interested in food in LA must know of the Pulitzer Prize winning food critic, Jonathan Gold.
I listen to him on Good Food (KCRW, Saturdays at 11:00am) with Evan Kleiman, and he does the food column for the L.A. Weekly.
"Anyhow, these are his top 10 food picks for 2008. There are some interesting choices. I've been hearing a lot of buzz about "Animal" Restaurant on Fairfax and Palate, right on Brand in Glendale. And Korean blowfish hot pot anyone?

Slideshow and article.

the weather has been unseasonably sunny and wonderful up here. it's part of what enticed me to move here. i don't know if it's just luck or global warming but it's beautiful. the only thing is i have a ton of homework to do. me and my fried hair need to get on it. agh!
here i tried to make a panorama of the view off our balcony:
