Three things I really enjoyed today: Paul Schrader’s latest movie “First Reformed” starring a phenomenal Ethan Hawke. Kanye West’s “Ghost Town” hands down the best song of his latest album “Ye” which I played in repeat. The hamburger at Apple Pan in Los Angeles. Same old deal since 1947, true LA gem, shared the counter with Warren Beatty.
For 34 years, Simon Rodia worked single-handedly to build his Watts towers without benefit of machine equipment, scaffolding, bolts, rivets, welds or drawing board designs. Besides his own ingenuity, he used simple tools, pipe fitter pliers and a window-washer’s belt and buckle. The tallest of his towers stands 99½ feet.
