Santa Monica

Santa Monica downtown, Monday afternoon. Everyone is 17-25 and on their way from the beach, on their way to a party. Don’t people work here? More Starbucks-per-square-inch than in Manhattan, and that’s saying alot. Movie theaters and pizza parlors, city-provided free WiFi and street musicians everywhere. So far, LA is living up to it’s party-town […]

More Traffic

There are two distinct differences in how the US traffic system treats traffic lights. The first is the Right Turn – to avoid having to build those little right-turn lanes that we have in Israel, the law states that you are simply allowed to turn right at any intersection even on a red light – […]

As they say, the big difference lies in the little details. Take street signs, for instance. Oh, they have the usual iconograms here in the US, the strangely universal octogonal and capitalized STOP sign, the intuitive No Right Turn and the ever-popular Road Work sign heralding another highway slowdown. But in the US more often […]

I think the moment I realized that I was in a very, very fucked-up place was when I lifted up my head and saw a half-size replica of the Eiffel Tower – that’s over 200 meters, for those of you who haven’t googled it up yet. 200 meters of steel and concrete, costing probably dozens […]

Let the games begin

It is easy to put a finger on 1995/6 as the beginning of the end for the glory days of the arcade. When Sony released the Playstation, it took video games out of the kids’ hands and into mainstream culture. In a few years you could find Playstations in bars alongside pinball machines, and rappers playing […]

Jukeboxes are fun. Whether they’re the old spinning-45’s getting-stuck-until-The-Fonz-hits them Wurlitzers or the more modern CD based ones, they give you a feeling of participation. Especially if the bar isn’t too full and several people work the jukebox in turn, responding to the other’s selections. And the coolest bits? When the jukebox is entirely digital […]

The Bay Bridge (top) connecting San Francisco and Oakland.The Golden Gate Bridge (bottom) connecting San Francisco and Marin County, including Sausalito. Bonus fact #1: The ugly color that the Golden Gate bridge is painted is called “International Orange“. Bonus fact #2: Even though the Golden Gate Bridge’s San Francisco end is inside a park, and […]

Vancouver

One of the rivers that criss-cross Vancouver, hosting a large marina. Mountains in the background. Some clouds. Yes, you can go see for yourself. Click it. It’s fun. The Granville Island Public Market, which I think I mentioned before. As seen from the bridge. I think it’s the same bridge from the last picture.   […]
