Los Angeles, CA

The place where I want to go. I'd like to learn how to drive there. I've got a mix of love - hate, so much hate for L.A and South Cal way of life. 

William Faulkner:
"Everything in Los Angeles is too large, too loud and usually banal in concept. … The plastic asshole of the world."

Jack Kerouac:
"I never felt sadder in my life. L.A. is the loneliest and most brutal of American cities; New York gets godawful cold in the winter but there’s a feeling of wacky comradeship somewhere in some streets. L.A. is a jungle."

Raymond Chandler:
“A big hard-boiled city with no more personality than a paper cup.”

Christopher Hitchens:
"It’s mostly full of nonsense and delusion and egomania. They think they’ll be young and beautiful forever, even though most of them aren’t even young and beautiful now."

Michelangelo Antonioni:
"It's like being nowhere and talking to nobody about nothing."

Woody Allen:
"I mean, who would want to live in a place where the only cultural advantage is that you can turn right on a red light."

John Lennon
"Los Angeles? That's just a big parking lot where you buy a hamburger for the trip to San Francisco."
