Got To The Getty Villa


A good day today. Last week I did my occasional check of the Getty website to find some not-easy-to-get tickets were available for today. So I got em and mom and I enjoyed a Columbus Day outing to the freshly redone oceanside landmark, which afterward included a stop at the nearby stretch beach she used to take me to when I was a kid followed by lunch at another of our old haunts: El Coyote.

Presently he lives in Silver Lake with his wife Susan, their cat Rocky, dogs Terra and Hazel, and a red-eared slider turtle named Mater. Blogging since 2001, Will's web endeavors extend back to 1995 with, a comprehensive theater site that was well received but ever-short on capital (or a business model). The pinnacle of his online success (which speaks volumes) arrived in 1997, when much to his surprise, a hobby site he'd built called VisuaL.A. was named "best website" in Los Angeles magazine's annual "Best of L.A." issue. He enjoys experiencing (and writing about) pretty much anything creative, explorational and/or adventurous, loves his ebike, is a better tennis player than he is horr golfer, and a lover of all creatures great and small -- emphasis on "all."
