Toronto Maple Leafs fans film themselves watching collapse defeat to Boston in Game 7 of NHL play-offs. Mistake.
With its vivid orchestration, lyrical ambition, elegant pacing and thematic coherence, Pet Sounds invented – and in some sense perfected – the idea that an album could be more than the sum of its parts.

No, here in L.A., drivers peacefully wait for you to look up (from your smart phone, most likely) and notice the left-hand signal is green. Once you do, you can take your time, inching forward like a glowworm. It’s fine if only one car gets through per green arrow. No one seems to care. And as for intersections without a left-turn arrow—and this is truly confusing—drivers don’t bother to creep into the intersection. They wait, like sedated animals, back at the light.

I mean, there’s a paragraph here detailing the wacky thing she heard a guy say in a cafe mixed with a Scientology joke. Are you fucking kidding me? How lazy are you? Did you honestly believe this was some original take on Los Angeles?
