little l.a.

There's a lot about the nighttime Reykjavík sprawl that reminds me of Los Angeles. I am thinking especially of the view driving down the Höfðabakki hill from Breiðholt, with the whole night city spread out below. Iceland's capital has got a microcosm of all the LA geography: brightly lit expressways, forests of residential lights spread over gentle hills, a ring of mountains, and black ocean in the distance.

Or maybe that observation was just down to watching Heat for the 17th time this weekend. So how about it, Michael Mann, want to bring Al and "Bobby" here for the remake? Maybe Waingro somehow survived that LAX hotel-room shooting to taunt Neil McCauley down by the Eimskip container port.

A guy told me one time, "Don't let yourself get attached to anything you are not willing to walk out on in 30 seconds flat if you feel the heat around the corner."
