1) This article about why Los Angeles is the Best City In America: L.A. is the apocalypse: it’s you and a bunch of parking lots. No one’s going to save you; no one’s looking out for you. It’s the only city I know where that’s the explicit premise of living there – that’s the deal you make when you move to L.A.
2) The website for Southland Tales, which inspired this conversation:
So in the event of an apocalypse, would you follow The Rock?
Mr. Kinan and I, in the event of an apocalypse, have agreed to meet in Barstow.
You guys are so ready to get married.
3) In the event of an apocalypse, I plan to hijack a SPARKLETTS truck. I feel that clean water will be at a premium as I gather my friends and we make our way up the coast to the high-biomass areas in PacNo.
The dangly glittery things will probably attract road pirates, but we can maybe cover the truck in camo netting.
