Time for wasting

We need to hear from you.
Today during our spring member drive, put a dollar value on the trustworthy reporting you rely on all year long. The local news you read here every day is crafted for you, but right now, we need your help to keep it going. In these uncertain times, your support is even more important. We can't hold those in power accountable and uplift voices from the community without your partnership. Thank you.

We're guessing if you're reading this right now, you've got a little bit of time to kick back and be good to your own good self. The contributors to LAist spend an awful lot of time on the internet, and we've compiled this list of some of our favorite blogs for just this kind of moment. A sampling: defamer, gizmodo, terra non firma... aw heck, why cheat yourself? The whole kit & caboodle is after the jump.

Adrienne Crew:
Veiled Conceit - the funniest, snarkiest blog about the New York Times Weddings page you will ever read.
Terra Non Firma - Marissa's blog is where to go for the latest design and LA architecture news. Plus, she's really girly and smart, smart, smart.
Recycled Cholo Knows (by Barrio Marlon Brando. Excellent! - ed)
1947 Project - Murder and mayhem in LA in 1947...what's not to love?
Deep End Dining - Eddie Lin's a fearless foodie who wil (and does) eat anything. He's building media cred with his blog; he's a regular on KPCC's Pacific Drift and acting as Technical Advisor for an episode of "CSI:NY"

Lindsay William-Ross: - LA-themed blogs
