    So part photo dump, part learning process and part inspiration to learn about the place I live:

    This is acceptable at most "real" taco trucks. Especially the ones in or around DTLA, just don't be complete ass about it. The fusion new school ones aren't too cool. Well depends on crowd and location.

    Sometimes dinner and a movie. Obviously look for trucks with big crowds.

    Now for some random flicks:

    Why? Because that's the Bank of America from the North Hollywood shootout. After seeing a documentary about I walked all the areas around where cops were getting shot up and all that. Can't believe nobody except the bank robbers. Never knew I lived so close to this spot.

    always awesome seeing the "realness" of a city, not just the touristy bullshit.

    might try with a Florida thread...

    Featured on Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives. It is good. I've tried a couple different things here and will keep going back, even though its hella far. Victory and Tampa for the residents.

    Chicago Dog. Not sure how its supposed to taste, but this was damn good and the bowl of chili was real nice as well. The people are super nice as well.

    Counterpoint bookstore on Franklin in Hollywood. Super dope shop. Records as well. I've got at least 7 or 8 books from them in the last month. Including that Dondi White joint. They have a lot of collectible stuff as well. I LOVE used bookstores.

    Mural right next to the Capitol building. Big thing for writers here is to burn murals. Can't say I agree with this practice. At all.

    welcome to NOHOmo lol

    LA looks cool, but for some reason doesn't look as appealing as NY, but still somewhere I would like to visit.

    A few from a show called The Layup. Was a cool show with a good vibe, unlike a lot of L.A. shows. Freight writers are breed of their own. Met a fellow oontzer there who promptly hooked me up with some mags and took my black book to be done up by his crew. Thanks again 12oz. I tend not to talk to random graff cats, but because of 12oz you get a screening process somewhat so its all good. Word.

    This is from around where the show was. Kind of an inside joke.

    Some of what I got that night: Three STD mags, sticks, etc...

    Thanks Decy. Would be dope to see a UK flick thread. Travel threads fucking rule, but I thought it might be cool to get a view from someone who is there.

    Thanks Grasp, there is a lot more I'll be adding and updating with as well as some older flicks I have.

    Thanks as well Theo.
