This is so cool for anyone who’s driven down Sunset Blvd. in LA from the 1960’s on. It’s already documented in a book by artist and photographer Ed Ruscha, and now in an exhibit at the Getty Museum, but I think it’s really best experienced online, in an interactive timeline that lets you move down the street in a leisurely way that you can’t do when driving, and flip to the other side of the street or to another year with a click, and even choose the car you cruise in. It’s brilliant!

I just love people who are not afraid to share their creativity! And I love LA! And I love the iPhone, cuz it’s always there when you need it!
This guy really brightened an otherwise-dreary commute.
I sometimes amuse myself on the way to work — I love this vanity plate on a plumbing truck on the 405 freeway in Los Angeles. All plumbers should have a sense of humor!
