Post by DangerousDave » Tue Mar 20, 2012 1:19 am

Looks like I will be moving to L.A. in the fall for grad school, what are some tips people have about the area?

Spend some time in the most congested prime time traffic in your area and get used to it. That it was it will be like 24/7 in LA.

Gang bangers. And you have to wear a condom if you are in a porn.

Since you're currently living in the north west it can't be overstated that you need to leave behind your leisure pace. People in CA move with purpose even if they don't have one. So don't piss people off with your lollygagging around when you're driving or walking. And don't waste people's time when you're up to bat at the counter like you've never seen a McDonald's menu before.

There's few guilty pleasures more enjoyable than taking your time when everyone around you is in far too much of a rush. :lol:

As long as you’re secure with the fact that everybody around you thinks you’re a fucking idiot.

The chicks are hot but there are several laws which state that the likes of you need to maintain at least a 20yard distance at all times.

Santa Monica has some good places for grub... and its pretty quiet out there.

Make it a mission to drive through the hills and go green... with envy.

On some late nights if you're quiet and around Topanga you can hear a faint echo of "whooaaaaaa" coming from Keanu Reeves as he's coasting down the hills on his motorcycle (with the lights off).
