West Los Angeles Sunset

BRAIN DUMP: I have not seen any of the movies up for best picture. They all seem kinda, eh. Of 54 films nominated for anything, I’ve seen nine. Six of those are nominated in just one category. Neko Case is doing an in-store at Amoeba Records. I want to go to Japan. Kyoto specifically, and […]
