    "All I need is a daily dose of the denizens who abide in Dave Blume's imagery and all the travails that I deem unbearable in my life become somewhat insignificant.
    He must surely have a heavy heart."

    "d_blumenkrantz has captured the real LA, not the Drive or Beverly Hills but the real LA, I grew up in LA and remember downtown LA, Broadway LA, I have often wondered if the Bee Gees really were singing about Broadway in LA?
    Without any doubt d_blumenkrantz has captured the essence of a once and real LA. He is one of the best.
    I have ridden the night train from LA many times, time, what a time it was…!"
