Los Angeles is too big and unwieldy to be considered a real city, especially since the only aspect of city life is the collective 5 mph spurts on the freeway during rush hour. Not to mention that its machine is responsible for so much that is awful in mainstream culture (celebrities! plastic surgery! excess!) that you might think that LA is a terrible place filled with beautifully terrible people. Nope!
Ignore everything, stick yourself in the gluten free bubble, and just enjoy it because who gives a shit about any of that crap when it’s always 75 degrees outside and you can maybe see Jared Leto come out of that juice spot. BYOWater, though.
And also, how can a place be terrible when it can look like this hyperlapse from Vadim Tereshchenko.
