The mens grooming brand, Baxter of California has opened up its first barber & shop in Los Angeles, called Baxter Finley. The shop is appropriately named after the man who first started the company in 1965. The focus seems to be a more traditional, no frills barbershop where one can get a simple shave and/or cut. Since the brand is Baxter OF CALIFORNIA, one would hope that other locations will spring up across the golden state. Northern Cali perhaps? Just a suggestion. If you’re a guy(or a girl buying grooming goods for your man), live in the L.A. area and tired of getting your hair trimmed at one of the twenty Supercuts located within a 5 mile radius at any given point in your town, do give them a look.
Kogi BBQ is a famous Taco truck that goes around L.A. and stops at three spots a day and serves from what I hear, the most amazing Korean BBQ Taco’s in the world. Apperently the lines are absolutely ridiculous. I’m kicking myself here for not knowing about Kogi sooner as I was just in L.A. for spring break. When I was there I managed to visit three different Pinkberry’s, The Curry House in downtown L.A. and Roscoe’s Chicken & Waffles. The next time I’m in socal, I will make it a point to chase down a Kogi BBQ wagon and try me a Korean Short Ribs and a Spicy BBQ Taco.
You can always get some Kogi Taco’s in Culver City from a place called Alibi, where they serve a number of things not available on the trucks like Kimchee or Spam Sliders, Kimchee Seasame Quesadillas and Korean Spiced fries. But seriously, it’s a much cooler experience to actually get food from one of Kogi’s two nomadic trucks Roja and Verde. If you’re ever in L.A. and happen to come across one of these two, be sure to get in line.

Filming a full length documentary about scaring birds on the beach primarily. We’re aiming for an late ’09/early 2010 release. It’s Earth Day today too so in honor of this occasion, I’ll post a teaser of said documentary. I find filming birds in their natural habitat(and us scaring them) quite fitting for today. Be back in full form in a bit.
