SABER, maximal graffiti artist, took to the Downtown skies today to protest the recent banning of murals in the city. We’ve seen a lot of photos and are super bummed we didn’t get to see it for ourselves downtown.
If you live in Los Angeles, you’ve probably forgotten that something like the Hollywood sign exists. There is literally no point for you to remember it sits atop of Beachwood Canyon because, well, it isn’t really much of anything besides some sheet metal and poles that no one can access. It may be one of the city’s hallmarks but, unless it is about to be taken down, no one really cares about it.
One thing that sucks about Los Angeles are the constant award ceremonies and premieres and other traffic obstructions that boil up pretty badly once a quarter. For the late summer/early autumn quarter, the Emmy Awards are the number one annoyance. The short of it is that the above map details the blockades that will be up Downtown for the awards.
Cirque du Soleil’s first Los Angeles foray Iris arrived in the city earlier this summer with a lot of buzz. The movie themed acrobatic show based out of the Kodak Theatre has been up for over two months now and the LA Times has done a great video documenting a behind the scenes look at a promotional photo shoot for the show. The video of the shoot captures the show’s actors in and out of costume and gives you a peek into photographer Jay L. Clendenin’s process.
2012 may yield a lot of new things for us but it is mostly certain that the world will not be ending nor will there be any catastrophic madness occurring. However, San Fernando Valley porn company Pink Visual beg to differ and are constructing a full service studio and entertainment center for you to ride out disaster in the most stimulating way possible. Is this the silliest idea ever or the silliest idea ever?
