Look At This Solar Flare

Get familiar with what will cripple the earth in a couple years.

From NASA:

“When a rather large-sized (M 3.6 class) flare occurred near the edge of the Sun, it blew out a gorgeous, waving mass of erupting plasma that swirled and twisted over a 90-minute period (Feb. 24, 2011). This event was captured in extreme ultraviolet light by NASA’s Solar Dynamics Observatory spacecraft . Some of the material blew out into space and other portions fell back to the surface. Because SDO images are super-HD, we can zoom in on the action and still see exquisite details. And using a cadence of a frame taken every 24 seconds, the sense of motion is, by all appearances, seamless. Sit back and enjoy the jaw-dropping solar show.”

Reminisce Over This

Run-DMC, It’s Tricky, 1986

Go Buy Now: Nate Lowman, Paper Airplane

Available at Exhibition A

Paper Airplane depicts the urban legend where a folded $20 bill origami-ed just so, creates an image of the twin towers exploding. This painting is a contemporary deconstructionist’s field day: the nexus of finance and terrorism, Warhol’s penchant for disaster depiction, the American government’s suggestion we shop our way out of the tragedy, and our country’s obsession with conspiracies big and small.

The Griddle Cafe

Joining the ‘Clean Plate Club’ at a spot like this is a challenge. Everything is huge, and delicious. I opted for the ‘Peanut Bubba Crunchy French Toast’ which is french toast dipped in peanut butter, grilled, then topped with powedered sugar and whip cream. That was fun to eat.

Visit the Griddle Cafe if you’re in LA but, be sure to go early.
