Bottled Kobe

New sign that was installed last night on Los Angeles Street. Does it refer to Kobe, Japan or Kobe, Los Angeles?

Here yesterday, gone yesterday

These folks spent their Sunday afternoon working on this (northeast corner of 3rd & Main) only to have it painted over. I wanted to tell them that history wasn't on their side, but they seemed to be having so much fun.

Adam Yauch tribute

Today was the last day of Transmission LA at MOCA, which was put together by Mike D from the Beastie Boys.
