Out of town for Thanksgiving, but part of Chicken Corner couldn't stay away from Chicken Corner. I decided to check in on a pair of local blogs, The Jimson Weed Gazette and The Eastsider. Jimson Weed has some gorgeous nighttime images, a bus stop on Pico, Olvera Street, a cherub. And The Eastsider, which is more about words and facts (and is the creation of a friend of mine), has recent posts on billboard blight and sleeping zones, both subjects of lively discussion in the area.
From the huh, really? oh, good! dept., the blog Echo Park, California has come back to life (this one also the creation of a friend). For a long time there were no new posts on the site, such a long time that I got out of the habit of checking. Then they came back, simple as that. Recent posts have discussed the name Echo Park and the showing of eco design.
Of course, were I to go stark clucking batty, I could always shut myself away from friends and family and tune in to the new WB webisode series The Hills, which is said to be about Echo Park. One never knows, do one?
