Culture season is upon us.
Culture season is upon us.
Walking in LA is bullshit. As really the only form of exercise I ever got in New York, I thought I would carry the trend on over to the West Coast when I moved out earlier this year. While I still hoof it from place to place in my neighborhood, this city makes you feel uncomfortable doing it. First, there’s the fact that there’s nowhere worth walking to. It just seems that all the best places to go, you need to be driving or be driven. No bodegas either. Secondly, you can’t jaywalk, which is dumb. Let me cross the road when I feel like I can safely enough do it. And finally, this thing where you have to push a button to get a walk signal? Fuck you. Let me jaywalk or automatically turn it on. The unnecessary stress of having to remember to hit that button really ruins a peaceful activity. Great weather though.
Alfredo Adán recently made the task of pushing the walk button a little more enjoyable by turning the act into a fist bump. Good work from him on that.
Robert Wright, a man who at 3 o’clock in the morning saved his ribs and his kids from an apartment fire in Fresno. The only injury our hero sustained was smoke inhalation, but because he already had other smoke in his lungs, he was unharmed.

A hike through the Haleakalā Crater on the island of Maui is like nothing else in this world. Voyaging over volcanic sands into the center of the dormant beast, you enter a wilderness area containing a range of ecosystems and terrain that stimulate your eyes and challenge your endurance. From an extraplanetary landscape scattered with the Seuss-like silversword, to a seemingly endless cinder desert pierced with jagged volcanic rocks, you can easily trick yourself into thinking that you’re on the Road to Mordor. And it’s just then—when you start looking over your shoulder for Gollum—that you traverse down into native shrubland and life seems possible again. Here, 11 miles worth of pictures.
