Odds & Ends
Naveen Andrews loves Los Angeles: It kind of has an element of rootlessness, and it attracts rootless people.
Get your Spoken Word on tomorrow night at the Union Center for the Arts. One of our favorite non-local bloggers will be there. Then on Thursday night, hook up with Junichi's blog partner Oliver Wang at the Rap Sessions event on UCLA's campus.
But, if you're not down with poplicks like we are, you can always go hang out at Apartment Therapy's first LA party on Thursday night. They are looking for a videographer for the eventas well.
And, finally, if you've given up the print edition of the Times but still need your Fry's Ad fix (because, really, how else would you know you can get a computer for free or 8 million blank CD-Rs for a penny?), you now have a virtual cheap electronics crack house.
LAist is your pusherman.
