LA Day

Partly inspired by my new favorite documentary we went to the following today:

"Our Town" (The Watts Towers)
USC campus (What is it about their campus that makes it seem so sterile?)
The Velaslavasay Panorama (Luckily, we got there right as the light and sound show climaxed. We waited almost an hour for it to happen again, but it didn't come. The images seemed to be moving on the wall when it happened. Some of the other visitors who missed it would go downstairs and ask the docent whether the panorama was supposed to do something.)
Nickel Diner (Batting 100% on taking people here. Everybody loves it.)
Museum of Neon Art
Bullocks Wilshire (We were able to sneak into it, no problem.)
The Great Wall of Los Angeles
The Statue of Liberty of Los Angeles (Got to talk to Chickenboy's Mom, which was wonderful all around. She made a movie about him years ago. I encouraged her to screen it somewhere soon. We also talked about putting together a Googie architecture tour. She and some of her friends did one years ago.)
HMS Bounty
"Bluebeard's Eighth Wife" at LACMA
Kibitz Room at Canter's (saw a pair of pretty mediocre bands)
Outdoor back patio at La Cabana
