I’m not sure how to say this, but amidst all of this highly elevated racial discourse involving homicide via MACHETE, but perhaps Warner Bros. might wish to suspend it’s promotion of #MANOFSTEEL
Or am I out on an island on this one?
“The tiny fraction of Angelinos who bothered to show up to the polls yesterday got to choose between Eric Garcetti and Wendy Greuel… The best thing you could say about either of them is that they weren’t Antonio Villaraigosa.
Garcetti won. I knew he would. I knew it all along for one simple reason. His last name sounds mayoral, and Wendy’s last name does not.
If you don’t believe me, ask our departing mayor why he changed his name from “Tony Villar” to “Antonio Villaraigosa” before getting into local politics. That’s the kind of stupid shit that makes a difference in Los Angeles.
No one else will say it, but the brutal truth is that Wendy was fucked from day one because she has a shitty sounding last name. Mayor Greuel just doesn’t have a ring to it, and Mayor Garcetti sounds slick”
Regardless of last names, it seemed destined to be a fair-skinned candidate. Not being Villaraigosa was certainly either’s “most attractive” quality. Garcetti, responsible for “revitalizing” Hollywood, and Greuel, the city accountant, who promised to reduce traffic by improving public transportation (re: clean up neighborhoods so condo-owning millennials will risk riding public transportation through them).
Seems we’re headed back to a Chandler-esque LA. A hot spot, “a white spot,” attempting to seduce investors. For those of you a little hazy on your LA history, white spot was a
subtle way of attracting mid-westerners to Southern California promising communities that looked exactly like the ones they were leaving in Kansas, and Oklahoma. Full disclosure: I’m a white dude.
