RIP Steve Jobs :)
It’s a modern classic.
In a new book, a veteran L.A. County sheriff’s detective says most arsonists aren’t archvillains with ingenious devices, but instead are often physically disabled and/or mentally disturbed, and on drugs.
This is fascinating stuff:
One Southern California serial arsonist that Nordskog writes about, Glendale fire investigator John Orr, does fit the Hollywood mold. But Nordskog says that’s because he based his sprees on the crime novels he loved to read.
Orr was not just a firefighter arsonist but also a well-regarded arson detective who trained law enforcement throughout the state while he was setting more than 1,000 fires, Nordskog writes. Orr was sentenced to life in prison without parole for starting a fire that killed four people in a South Pasadena hardware store in 1997.
Edward Hopper + Star Wars + Christmas = pop culture gluttony. C3PO and R2D2 look like such sad afterthoughts of those inside, like drunk homeless men, bereft a home or family, but not totally forgotten. Odd, but kind of fitting.

Kids put a firecracker in this poor German Shepard’s mouth and then taped its jaw shut. The dog was later put down. This world makes me fucking sick.
