Weekend Media Threads June 23, 2019

Due to a much longer than planned travel day on Saturday, this is going to be a shortened version of my weekend media threads, and won’t have much in regards to media. The reason being, my family and I were on vacation this is week in Los Angeles visiting my brother, John. He relocated from Pittsburgh to LA a few ago and this was the first time we’ve had a chance to visit him in his new home.

It was also the first time that I’ve been on the west coast. I’ve been in the western time zone, Las Vegas to be specific. But never all the way to the coast. As was the case, we decided to fit as many tourist-type visits as possible. Combine that with an unexpected stop in Chicago due to an electrical failure on the flight home, and it was a very long week – but not in a bad way.

Needless to say, I’ve had very little time to think or read about media this week. No, most of my reading this week was fiction. Just something to kick back and enjoy my time with family. So instead of talking media, I thought I would share some images of our time in LA.


It is no exaggeration to say these scooters are everywhere. I walked three quarters of a mile and counted 95 that were in some state of non-usage. Also, that’s my brother, John.

I do love street art.

La Brea Tar Pits

Universal Studios Hollywood.

Culver City.

Griffith Observatory.

Venice Beach and Santa Monica Pier.

And finally, The Getty Center. I’m still in awe of the views from here. Stunning.
