A Sunday trip through the blogs

Michael at Franklin Avenue called directory assistance to get the number for Wahoo's in the mid-Wilshire area, and the voice from somewhere else in the country politely asked:

"Sir? Can I ask you a question? Do they really put fish in the tacos?"

Also go read Michael's farewell to his first car, and the incredible reason that he needs a new car...Other items that got my attention: Though I've become a bit jaded over time about Cathy Seipp's mini-digs at the LAT -- the Margo Magee shtick is what 10 years old now? -- she's the only critic I've found posting about the new Home section. But she's not alone in wondering what's up. Times Features Editor and all-around fixer Rick Flaste is said to be paying a lot of attention to the section...Both Seipp and Franklin Avenue, by the way, write separately about a Comedy Central event last week at the home of Robert Evans... Amy Langfield posts from Brooklyn but worked in L.A. media and has a take on the potential sale of the Register in Orange County...Director Roger Avary is addicted to "Project Greenlight" on HBO -- and has 155 comments on his post so far. None are whining about the liberal media or Bush's lies, proving that life is different on the Hollywood blogs ...Justene at CalBlog is rolling out archives of past reporting on Arnold Schwarzenegger, as part of her ongoing recall focus. She and fellow right-of-center websites have banded togather as the Bear Flag League...Kynn at Shock and Awe, meanwhile, looked into recall sugar daddy Darrell Issa's finances and found that on the day after 9-11, he was taking a check from Halliburton...And Salon writer Heather Havrilesky reminds us all on her rabbit blog that "it's important not to hate yourself just because you're beautiful."
