“Carmelita”, Warren Zevon

This morning, I remained in bed to finish “The Late Show”, the new Michael Connelly novel that introduces a new protagonist into his Boschland world of Los Angeles. Harry wasn’t mentioned by name, but there  was a minor crossover to that universe, so I won’t be surprised for any future crossover.

Renee Ballard, is a spunky female detective that found herself on the wrong end of a sexual harassment claim which found her transferred to the night shift, aka Late Show. 

The crossover involved a son of a cop that was  in a couple of the Bosch novels. 

It was a good read and I look forward to the next one.

To think, I had this baby down to 12… Oh well. 

An edit off of the @la2024 image. A little bit of everything LA has to offer. Just missing the Hollywood Hills.

I’ve been watching/listening to Marc Maron’s second and third season of his show and they keep showing “his” house. Whether it’s his real house or not who knows, but I love the bungalow they are showing.

Los Angeles is Gotham for a Night

I was already in bed last night when this Adam West tribute was taking place on the West Coast. A touching and fitting tribute by the Los Angeles mayor as they lit up City Hall with the famed “Bat Signal” to honor the late “Batman” actor who died at 88 years of age last Friday (6/9). 

Earlier in the month, (after checking it was a month ago today), I mentioned season 3 of “Bosch” debuting on Netflix. I probably watched it in 3 days. I simply forgot to come back write a bit of a summary.

The series is based on the Michael Connelly “Bosch” series of books which is currently let’s call it 30 deep since he has appearances in other Connelly novels set in the same universe. The first was created in 1992 and is still alive and well.

Each season seems to concentrate on one novel(they aren’t going in order), and borrows snippets and pieces from others. Initially, I preferred that it follow the novels, same time-line. Bosch in the books is a Vietnam Vet, on the show he’s  Desert Storm/Desert Shield. Odds are there would be more far more expenses into turning modern day Los Angeles into the early 90s, so I get that part of it.  After 3 seasons, I think I like the borrow/combine  concepts from various story lines a bit better because it would likely be impossible to have 25 seasons.

It was renewed for season 4 in 2016, long before the season 3 release, so hopefully they will announce they will be adding season 5/6/35 shortly.
