I went to the StoryCorps booth in L.A. and blogged it

On Saturday the 19th, I went to MacArthur Park in downtown L.A. to interview my mom in the StoryCorps booth. My brother went to interview our dad. I wrote all about it (w/ tons of photos) at my other site. Took photos of all the gear, too.

Let there be (street) light(s)

This collection of old LA streetlamps at LACMA intrigues. There’s a rumor that my mother’s aunt, who worked as an artist for General Electric for a time, designed a streetlamp that was installed in downtown L.A. I wonder if Chris Burden (the artist) or LAMCA know the provenance of the 202 vintage streetlights?
