No, this isn't another blog entry about moving.
But a thought did come to mind tonight.
What's with the whole 'east coast v. west coast' thing?
I admit - I don't follow rap music.
But isn't there a huge west coast v. east coast rap feud?
And wasn't there "west coast swing" and "east coast swing"?
I never quite understood New Yorker's disdain for all things Los Angeles. I mean, New Yorkers seem ok with San Francisco.
Are they jealous of LA's perpetual sunshine?
Or do they detest the entertainment industry and all that it brings to the city - the fake boobs, the fake personalities and people?
I'm not sure.
I've said this before - LA is just like high school. It suddenly matters again what kind of car you drive, how you look and what clique you hang out with.
I don't think Angelinos have anything against New Yorkers after all!
We love visiting the city for bagels, pizza, shopping and all things New York.
So where does this rivalry come from?
Having lived on both coasts now, I'm still trying to figure it out.
I will say though, that it's rare I've ever questioned anyone's sincerity in New York.
Is that it?
Anyhow, both coasts seem to have a lot to offer.
The west coast definitely wins on the sunshine and weather - and the sushi and Mexican food.
The east coast definitely wins on the scenery - grass, trees, plants, birds, flowers, all that stuff.
Probably the only way to do it right is to be bi-coastal.
