I may be taking a job in LA doing work that I'm very excited about. However, I have some dim impressions of LA from a week-long visit in 2005.
Things I value in life:
1. Access to building materials, tools, and surplus.
...(I build a lot of stuff -- cameras, book scanners, and more)
2. Access to maker/thinker people.
...(I live in a vacuum now, would love to be connected)
3. Food - not fine dining.
...(I like to cook, I LOVE foreign foods from small, dirty restaurants)
...(I am an artist and a musician and love love love aesthetic experiences)
Can you tell me if and how (and when) LA does these things well? What would someone like me just love about LA? What, in other words, makes LA great?
I live in a place where a car is required, so that's not a big deal. I will be living in company housing so that's not (too) bad. The gig is for a year only, so it's not forever.
