L.A. is awesome, and you have to fucking try to come up with reasons to dislike it. Minus the traffic.

well, and the people.

Seems like there is a lot of graffiti everywhere compared with other cities.

Reminds me of a newspaper fail in Germany.. they wrote about how illegal graffitis become more and more popular among teenagers. They focused on the vast ammount of Turkish teenagers, who, according to the journalist, tagged their first name "Acab" on the walls...

The LA River basically has two modes, trickle and flood. So, decades ago they built a narrow concrete channel to carry the normal water flow down to Long beach, with a wide concrete flood channel to handle the heavy rains. If you've seen the movie Grease, the drag race scenes were filmed on the LA River.

Interesting - yes, I've definitely seen that landscape before now that you mention it. I kinda like it

It has to be one of the most filmed "rivers" the world.

Also, the part of the LA river near Atwater and Frogtown is kind of pretty in parts.

could have been. Its hard to see any actual bridge there with all of the editing. Great song, though.

You could fit everything bad about LA in the Beverly Center and just seal the exits and put up some cladding

You have a cougar living in one of your city parks. I would put that in the "cons" column.
