It’s Friiiiday everybody! Are you ready for the weekend? Sure enough Im swamped and can’t do a weekend guide, but I had a two second break and wanted to share this link to a site called Thugpography. My friend Sommer brought my attention to it, and it’s beautiful and hilarious. It’s all lyrics from rap songs, and it’s a fun arrangement of fonts and text. Happy Friday!

Well if you can’t make Hansen at House of Blues and relive the 90’s, then Mmmbop your way over to LA’s Historic Park for their new film series. The screening is held under the North Broadway Bridge, which was once the Buena Vista Viaduct, hence this spot is being called The Viaduct. Tonight’s film is In A Lonely Place (1950). It’s FREE and has great views of downtown, and how many people can say they’ve seen film noir under a bridge… not many.

Do This Today: Discover The Arts LA

Screen shot 2013-04-17 at 10.33.27 AM (2)

Today I’m posting a different kind of “Do This Today”… it’s more of a “Do This For Two Weeks” because many museums, theaters, and cultural centers are participating in an event lasting until April 26. It’s a tough economy and many museums are pretty costly, so until April 26th, visit THESE places and get tons of discounts on tickets. I’m talking about 25% of tickets at UCLA Center for the Arts, $20 tickets to Center Theater Group, and “Buy One Ticket Get 1 Free” to many LA museums.

Location: All over Los Angeles
Time: MArch 18 – April 26, 2013
