“The league office declined to make the trade for basketball reasons.”

NBA spokesman Tim Frank on the nixed trade deal that would have sent Lamar Odom to the New Orleans Hornets, Pau Gasol to the Houston Rockets and Chris Paul to the Lakers.

The league office declined to make the trade for basketball reasons. For basketball reasons. For basketball reasons. If you say it long enough, it sounds like a Zen koan.

Is it true what they say about Los Angeles, that Los Angeles is erratic,
That in the sweet national symphony of common sense Los Angeles is static?

Yes it is true. Los Angeles is not only erratic, not only erotic; Los Angeles is crotchety, centrifugal, vertiginous, esoteric and exotic.

Many people blame the movies and the movie-makers for Los Angeles’
emotional rumpus, but they are mistaken; it is the compass.

Certainly Los Angeles is a cloudburst of non-sequiturs, and of logic a drought,
But what can you expect of a city that is laid out east to west, instead of north and south?

Ogden Nash. LAT’s Christopher Hawthorne quoted a line from Nash for his presentation at the Los Angeles Archives Bazaar. You can read the quote in Carey McWilliams’ book “Southern California: An Island on the Land” (via lahistory)

Eeek. I feel bad that I haven’t read any of these books in their entirety. Also, this just reminds me how much I need to get a library card so I can read on my current “recently moved/Brooklyn living/freelance dancer/freelance photographer/perpetual intern/restaurant server/paying back college loans/chasing dreams” income. Woof.
