Hey, Los Angeles—You Are So Beautiful
That was beautiful and made me miss that city. LA has a lot of memories, especially from my highschool years. Remember taking this girl to griffiths observatory on a 'cold' winter night with just a blanket and a bottle of wine when I was 16, we then later headed back to her place and she became my first. Those views reminded me of that, kinda. You get older but the city lights at night always glimmer with millions of people beneath you running around getting busy with their lives.

Can you tell me what time into the video you're thinking.

I believe you're talking about the Westin Bonaventure though.

I love LA for a lot of reasons, but that video, while beautiful, captured almost none of them. It goes to show the power of beautiful video. That, and a good Cinematic Orchestra track making anything twenty times more poingant.

Yeah LA is awesome..

It just has a perfect combination of weather, traffic, scenery, lights and generally its topography is very unique..

When people say LA you think yeah LA, just another city.. But it's so different, it doesn't have that typical city feeling like New York, London, Sydney, Tokyo, Chicago etc etc.. It's so different..

I feel like when I tell people back home I live in LA they think of smog, rude people, and celebrities...I feel like LA is the red-headed step child of the US. Iím glad someone made a video that puts all of my positive feelings about this city into a short 3-min clip!
