  1. i love you…

  2. The main nugget I got from this was the comparison of LA vs. NY.
    I never knew LA was that kind of town where experiments and curiosity for creatives is more welcome and manageable, if failure occurs. Nice to know!

    And two, I CAN’T BELIEVE PEOPLE DIDN’T LIKE ‘EXTREME WAYS’! That track was BANG-A-RANG from the JUMP!!
    I think the masses didn’t like it, but his TRUE FANS, the true music lovers were jamming to it despite what any critics or MTV had to say or not play.
    Screw trends. Enjoy the things you love. ;)

  3. Regarding the rolling, wooden bench.

    I have a photo of that bench from Luzern. It was installed outside of a ‘modern’ furniture store. I took photos from several angles so that I could build one when I got home. Thank you for the reminder :)
