This Week's Most Commented & Recommended
When you read something you like on LAist, we love it when you hit the "recommend" button, and we love it even more if you put your two cents' worth in the comments. Getting a dialog going with our readers and making sure we're giving you content you can use are top priorities for us. So here's this week's top posts, as endorsed by you via the recommend feature, or as indicated by the level of talk going on in the comments:
Concert Review: British Sea Power -- Never Go See Them Live: Why one reviewer says you're better off buying the album and loving it that way, because the band just doesn't cut it in person.
Found in LA: Gas Prices... Way High: A photo showing someone's number-swapping blunder made us do a double take; gas for 9 bucks? But the comments came in when people played an unofficial round of "Guess Where This Gas Station Is?"
Bush Endorses McCain, is an Asshole: Both are true, although only the former happened this week for the first time while the latter is pretty consistent.
Satan's Ice Cream Truck: Visions of demons danced in our heads as a local ice cream truck warbled its curious tune. The best--or worst--thing about this post was the inclusion of an audio sampling of the actual song, as recorded by the post's author. This post was also the number one commented this week, too.
You Rock My Life Marion: Mural devotion to the winner of this year's Best Actress Oscar gets your thumbs up.
The LAist Bob Saget Interview - Saget to Appear in Anaheim, March 8th: When someone from tv's Full House drops the F-bomb, everyone loves it. Or maybe you all just love you some Bob Saget. This great interview gets our readers' endorsement.
