Van Dyke Parks and LA

Since I don’t have any big thinky thoughts or rants to share today, I thought I’d direct you to a feature of LA Mag that always makes smile; My LA A to Z is a nice column where LA creatives (actors, etc) talk about their favorite spots. It’s been a bit of a boy’s club of creatives so far in term of their interviewees, but I assume they’ll pull their heads out and realize 1) female creatives exist and 2) they, too, go to coffee shops and restaurants.

That snark aside (it’s never snark free in this corner of the inter webs), Van Dyke Parks was recently interviewed, and his selections are wonderful. Then go look at everybody else’s selections. While you’re at it, go listen to Van Dyke Parks’ new singles.
