Well…I think this blogging la thing is going to be pretty great and I’m psyched to be a part of it. As some of you will know, my posts will focus on the arts in Los Angeles. The art scene in Los Angeles is really bubbling right now with so many fantastic galleries, artists, and curators doing some pretty amazing things. It’s a scene that I’m proud to be a part of and make contributions to. Some people feel that LA will take over the role of THE influential art city, especially after the loss of interest of YBAs in London. Whether that’s true or not, we shall see but, in the meantime, I’m excited by this opportunity to discuss movements, events, and my own personal thoughts.
There’s obviously more to come…
Hi, I’m Sean. I few months back I had an idea. I sat on it and did nothing. Then I met Jason. Turns out a few months back he had an idea too. We got coffee, vomited ideas back and forth, and went to work. 2 weeks and 50 bazillion IM’s later, Blogging.la is born.
We’ve rounded up a bunch of bloggers to dish out the scoop on what’s happening here in LA, and that’s basically the only rule. Stuff on this site will be somehow LA related, but other than that, it’s pretty wide open. Events will be hyped and shit will be talked. The writers all have varying specialties and interests, some of them you might know from their own blogs, others might be new to you. Take a look around, see who’s who, and what’s what. Over the next few days everyone should chime in and say “hi” so keep checking back, it’s going to be fun.
Ok, so this is my first post on our new group blog dedicated to all things Los Angeles. I have wanted to do this project for about 6 months now but it wasn’t until I hooked up with Sean Bonner, who had the same ideas on to how to do it, that I got my ass into gear. So over the course of the past week we nabbed a few minutes here and there and here ya go! It’s still a work in progress and we’ll be building out cool new stuff as we go. My particular view of LA comes in the form of photography and rants on the absurdities of living in such a bizzare city. We’ve gathered a great crew here and will be adding to it in the next few weeks so check back for more!
