High King

from the "8 Things that Hipsters Don't Do In L.A. That Are Really Awesome" series

Griffith Park has four golf courses, a driving range, an outdoor auditorium, an observatory, a zoo, a train museum, fancy rich houses, a cemetery (sort of), a café, AND, the bat cave. Not to mention, deer, coyotes, bats, and occasionally a cougar.

Not the least of cool things inside this park are miles and miles of hiking trails. And it’s not like that trendy below-hipster Runyon Canyon either. Seriously, who hikes in makeup? And I’ve had enough of toy dogs thank you. Griffith Park’s hikes can be anything, be part of the observatory hike crowd or start off alone at the Bronson Caves and climb to the top. If you like to rub it in to those traffic chumps heading off to work while you’re busy chilling on a ditch day, hike the east side with trails complete with Freeway 5 overlooks. Or, for an extra special cool hiking experience go for a night hike with a group.

Oh and before you ask, take Beachwood Ave. to the Hollywood Sign.

McCain is running the silliest campaign I've ever heard of. This isn't an election for student body president, it's to become the leader of the free world! You can't pull bullshit like this; it's weak and it's lame. And if McCain's campaign is representative of his would be presidency, well then really, how could we even entertain the idea of voting this man into office?

Having said all that I got's to get me one of them tire pressure gauges. How cool would one of those be?

If you haven’t heard by now, even the prime minister of Iraq, Nouri al-Maliki, is calling withdrawal of American troops by early 2010.

In an interview with Der Speigel magazine, he said: "US presidential candidate Barack Obama talks about 16 months. That, we think, would be the right time frame for a withdrawal."

None too soon as far as I’m concerned. These photos were taken in late November so the numbers are wrong. The combat death toll as of this post is actually 4,131.
