Earlier this month, I had the opportunity to work on an ambitious project where we installed the 10′ x 10′ set from Lenny Abrahamson’s film ‘ROOM‘ into a secretive gallery setting in a mall on the west side of Los Angeles. Originally intended on being closed to the public, this Saturday (11/21), A24 will be opening up the space for attendees of the 2:10pm screening of ROOM at the Landmark Theatres. If you’ve had the inkling to see this outstanding film, I’d recommend heading to this enhanced experience as it really puts the filmmaking and tight quarters into perspective.
Congrats to our buddies Frederick and Maximilian Guerrero who have taken their visually encompassing tumblr, #Burgerlords, and turned it into a restaurant, also named Burgerlords. Before the meaty lifestyle space opens this October, the brothers will be doing a few pop-ups, including a first taste of Burgerlords tomorrow night (9/17) at Slow Culture Gallery.
Walking in LA is bullshit. As really the only form of exercise I ever got in New York, I thought I would carry the trend on over to the West Coast when I moved out earlier this year. While I still hoof it from place to place in my neighborhood, this city makes you feel uncomfortable doing it. First, there’s the fact that there’s nowhere worth walking to. It just seems that all the best places to go, you need to be driving or be driven. No bodegas either. Secondly, you can’t jaywalk, which is dumb. Let me cross the road when I feel like I can safely enough do it. And finally, this thing where you have to push a button to get a walk signal? Fuck you. Let me jaywalk or automatically turn it on. The unnecessary stress of having to remember to hit that button really ruins a peaceful activity. Great weather though.
Alfredo Adán recently made the task of pushing the walk button a little more enjoyable by turning the act into a fist bump. Good work from him on that.
