Moving to LA

I’ve lived outside the US for 15 years now of which 12 of those years has been in London. I love London but being in any one location for too long can make you stagnate. So with that brief introduction I’d like to announce that Kabuki and I are moving to LA next year. Admittedly it’s only for 2-3 years (and then we’re back in lovely London) but we’re both excited to have a California adventure together.

Next week we’ll be looking for flats in LA with the aim to move in in January. We’re aiming to have two bedrooms so please plan on coming for a visit. Also if you want to stay at a great AirBNB in London I just might know of one that’s available. 🙂

Andy Murray legitimizes his place at #1

ATP Finals 2016Had the priveledge of hanging out at the ATP Finals last night with my good friend Joe to watch Andy Murray put out a truly convincing demonstration that he’s #1 in the world. Great game, would have loved a 3rd set but happy to have seen 2 great ones with the “right outcome”.

Where’s my MacBook?

I have the coverter dongles. I have the case. Now where is my damn laptop!?!

Ok, I know I’m not yet allowed to complain as the window has even begun yet but I did order within an hour or two of it being available. And I do resemble a kid waiting for Christmas. Christmas with a touchbar, mind you.

The speculative good news is the “not eligilble to cancel or return” text is new as of today. 🙂

Went for a Drag

I went for a”drag” today with Biscuit. It was intended to be a walk but apparently he feels he hasn’t gotten enough exercise recently so the scheduled walk was turned into a drag.

Under Construction

The number of residential and commercial building being worked in our neighbourhood is amazing. I guess effect is not just our neighbourhood but all of London and down to the fact that people can’t afford to “buy up” so their “building up” instead with the unstated promise that the value they created will be able to be recaptured at some future point in the post-brexit economy.


Local Artist?

I’m not sure it’s the same artist … but it certainly looks like it is. I like well designed graffitti and this not bad (ignoring the junky addons that other people tried to mix in). Hope the owners down mind. Nothing compared to LA street art but then we’re talking about Kensal Rise here (arguably too residential a neighbourhood for street art).
