Water Water Everywhere

Water is a serious problem in LA yet most people don't care to conserve it or mind wasting it. Like this morning, it was raining and my neighbor's property was in the midst of watering the lawn. Seriously? It's such a waste to have a grass lawn in this city, but it's even worse to be wasting water like this. Broken sprinkler heads are everywhere, pouring water into the streets and sidewalks constantly. Grass lawns are plentiful and are constantly being watered, everyday and during the rain. If Los Angeles wants to make both a green change and some heafty pocket cash, they should fine these bastards. Make the world a better place.

Worst Trailer Ever

WOW! I've seen some bad trailers, but this one I can easily say may just be THE WORST! Not to say the movie will be terrible, but more often than not, a terrible trailer leads to well, less than admirable movies.

If you haven't seen this trailer, you really should check it out along with the TV spots. Both give away all major aspects of the film. Yes, the TV spots! In 30 seconds it gives you the begnning, middle, second middle, and twist ath the end! So aside from all plots being given away, ruining any means to not know the plot before it actually happens on screen (as if you wouldn't be able to predict it), everything has been done before, and this is coming from someone who avoids romantic comedies. So again, this movie may be amazing. It may just be the next big thing. Amy Adams is a great talent. But who allows trailers this terrible to be shown to destroy a movie, let alone make them?

My Brilliant Neighbors

A few days ago an xmas tree appeared on the front curb to the building next to me. What made it funnier than the fact it was covered in canned snow was the trail of it that lead to the tree from the front door. What are they going to do with this tree? I thought. This morning my question was answered.

Really? I will be curious to know if this tree will be in the same position when I return home today. If I had a tree and needed to get rid of it, I would take 10 minutes out of my busy schedule to saw it into a few pieces and put it in the green compost cointainer that picks up the same day, but what do I know.
