And The Award For Most Unique Bus Rider Goes To…

I was early on into my ride on the No. 14 Beverly Boulevard bus out from Historic Filipinotown to the Fairfax area body shop this afternoon to pick up Susan’s freshly repaired Ford, when this gentleman and his mannequin companion climbed aboard. Of course I tweeted about it with a pic attached and my friend Waltarrrrr tweeted back his congratulations at my encountering one of Metro’s more famous riders: Duaveed and Clara. Waltarrrrr linked me to a KROQ YouTube vid detailing their 2009 wedding. Yes, wedding.

Only in LA.

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."
