Los Angeles

Spending the month of February in Los Angeles, working from a place I rented with Chris Batty in Santa Monica. An ersatz Gawker HQ West.

February 1, first morning in LA. MOP hosted me at his new Venice beach bungalow.

Driving Through Estonia

Trip so far: Helsinki > Tallinn > Estonian seaside > Riga. Seen here, a moment on the two-lane Estonian superhighway, with the local radio station’s Flight of the Bumblebee marathon serving as soundtrack. Scott Fossell is your driver.

Back from ten days in the Bay Area and Lake Tahoe, far from email and the Internet. Upside: amazing skiing (endless powder, Tahoe on track for a record March snowfall), NCAA basketball, Harrahs. Downside: massive losses at the tables. Result: fantastic vacation. (More pix on Flickr. Whee!)
