i forget whether i mentioned re:composition here -- i definitely posted about it on facebook.

LOS ANGELES (January 18, 2012) - Coming up next week, SCI-Arc hosts the Los Angeles showing of the Kaleidoscope of Pacific Standard Time (K-PST)’s RE:COMPOSITION, a two-city thematic program of four new performances dedicated to the liberating spirit of California-native John Cage, in honor of his centenary in 2012.

Conceived and produced by independent curator Julie Lazar, RE:COMPOSITION considers how current compositional practices are enabling artists in a variety of disciplines to re-conceive and reconstitute aspects of their art production.

RE:COMPOSITION will run in Los Angeles for two nights only, with the same program presented on Friday, Jan 27 and Saturday, Jan 28 from 8-10pm.

and we checked out the digital darkroom exhibit at the annenberg (in century city). some of it was great, some of it not so much. "photoshop" as a genre is still figuring itself out.

Did you see Anthony Bourdain Layover Los Angeles? sort of interesting, even if he didn't go much East of Atwater or South of Koreatown.

Saw Julia Holter at the Welcome Inn Time Machine thing in Eagle Rock yesterday. Playing a little Korg synth in a couple James Tenney pieces. Overall I liked the show, but there was a whole lotta nothing between the occasional somethings.

this is happening...

The Danish collective SUPERFLEX built a life-size McDonald's replica, then flooded it to foreshadow capitalism's doom for the 21-minute film it made in 2009. The collective's new exhibition, right across from LACMA at 1301 PE, has a much subtler feel than the McDonald's flood, with framed posters downstairs and tastefully designed black "safety" lamps hung upstairs. But the quiet, slow-moving film that plays out on an upstairs wall is actually fairly aggressive. Entitled Modern Times, Forever -- at 240 hours long, it's the longest film ever made, the collective claims -- it simulates the demolition of Stora Enso, a massive modernist office building in Helsinki. Originally, the film played for its 10-day duration on the street in front of its subject, so you could see modernism persisting and disintegrating at the same time. 6150 Wilshire Blvd.; through March 3. (323) 938-5822,

I'm surprised when any show about LA goes that far east or south!

West LA is rad! Why were you surprised that you had a nice time over here?

Gamera died for our sins (J3ff T.), Sunday, 5 February 2012 18:48 (2 years ago) Permalink

It's so strange and different over there. There are no trees but the streets are very clean. And very mediocre things are incredibly popular. I feel like I am on some weird vacation when I am there.

wq (admrl), Sunday, 5 February 2012 18:49 (2 years ago) Permalink

I don't know, man, it's just a different world. I'm pretty mystified by it, tbh.

I like visiting but I don't see how I could live there and not feel a great angst.

and a kind of jealousy

and a sort of quiet, unresolved anger

the non wealthy parts of west la (including the neighborhood "west la") are very interesting to me in that the are so anonymous. if i wanted to disappear/run away that's where i'd move.

what's west la

puff puff post (uh oh I'm having a fantasy), Sunday, 5 February 2012 18:53 (2 years ago) Permalink

it's a good question

wq (admrl), Sunday, 5 February 2012 18:53 (2 years ago) Permalink

I don't know man. I love living here. It's a little more spread out than East LA, but you've got some really good restaurants (especially Italian), easy access to lots of shopping and some really good movie theaters, a record store that I love (Record Surplus), plus closer to the ocean.

Gamera died for our sins (J3ff T.), Sunday, 5 February 2012 18:53 (2 years ago) Permalink

Also it's quiet, which I appreciate.

"i don't go west of fairfax" is the "i don't go above 14th street" of LA

Prince Rebus (donna rouge), Sunday, 5 February 2012 18:54 (2 years ago) Permalink

There are some good movie theaters. The ocean, I don't know, how great is it really?

My neighborhood is damn quiet. Sitting by the screen door right now and all I hear is birdsong.

wq (admrl), Sunday, 5 February 2012 18:55 (2 years ago) Permalink

honestly tho the expo line extension means i am several times more likely to head over to west LA
