35 Things Only Real Angelenos Know About L.A.


There are observations any outsider can make about Los Angeles, such as: every waiter or waitress you meet is secretly an actor or actress waiting for their big break. True. And there are the things New Yorkers like to say to spit in the eye of Los Angeles. They tease us for our conversations about what route we took to avoid traffic. Well, you won’t hear us say anything about how New Yorkers love to talk, text and tweet about their crappy weather. We just feel bad for them. When and if we ever think about New York. And honestly, we can’t help it that our weather is always awesome. Unlike New Yorkers, all we really have to complain about is our traffic.

You could say Los Angeles is a lot like our aging celebrities with their Botoxed faces and bad plastic surgery smiles. You know who I mean: those stars best known for things they did back in the ‘80s or ‘90s. Just like those stars of a bygone era, Los Angeles earned its reputation in the past. That’s what most folks know — the reputation.

When you’re here, you see how the city is always changing, always chasing the Next Big Thing. No matter what, the tourists keep coming. They usually miss the cool stuff the city offers because they’re too busy paying to chase ghosts of Old Hollywood. Of course, we don’t care if the tourists miss out. Take Boston, those folks want you to know how great Boston is. (Which tells you something right away about Boston. Apparently, like a laxative or a floor polish, Boston needs a little advertising.)

We don’t care if you like Los Angeles. We don’t care if you hate L.A. We don’t care that strongly about anything. Like I said, the weather’s too nice. We have stuff to do. (Read More Inside)

1. You’ve never called it “Cali.”
The only people who call it “Cali” aren’t from California. It’s not that anyone has to tell you not to say it, people just don’t. I think it’s a respect thing. It feels almost like calling your mother by her first name. I’m cringing just thinking about it. (10 More Inside)

Urban Curator: Tyson Pruong


The streets of downtown Santa Ana are barren on a cold Tuesday night, save for a space on Fourth Street where members of the Santa Ana art collective Konsept meet to discuss plans for the next Downtown Art Walk. The collection of pizza boxes, bags of chips and soda cans strewn around the snack table add to the relaxed vibe in the room, which serves as headquarters, studio and gallery space all in one. Founder and leader Tyson Pruong is wearing nicely ironed, office-appropriate dress clothes—seemingly strange apparel for a guy who mostly hangs around laid-back artists and musicians.

Living in two Huntington Beaches

Living in two Huntington Beaches

Eric Vedder in Huntington Beach saw changes in his son after moving to the city from Mission Viejo. (Luis Sinco, Los Angeles Times / September 5, 2013)

I tend to like children, and generally harbor positive thoughts about the future. But I had my doubts this summer, maybe like you, after the U.S. Open of Surfing crowd degenerated into marauding and brawling — young men clashing with police in riot gear, flipping over rows of porta-potties, ripping out street signs and using them to bash into local businesses.

They called it a “riot.” A riot, however, happens when there is at least the perception of some sort of injustice. This was no riot. It was a window — into a world that is both sun-baked and dark, a world where a celebration of youthful freedom clashes with grown-up excess. (Read More Inside)
