Getty Getty Getty Confetti

Yesterday, I went to visit the Getty Center in Los Angeles up above the I-405. I have only been there once before and that was about twelve years ago. The architecture of the buildings were definitely a lot more beautiful than I remember, and all the works of art were definitely inspiring. I was expecting to see a much larger garden because there are a lot of species of plants, but the garden was kind of small. I am not really a religious person, so I find religious art to be quite preachy and often times creepy and the Getty Center is FULL of this religious art. But anyways, here are some of my favorite pieces from the museum:

I really like the trams they use.

HARD LA Cancelled

Regrettfully, HARD has cancelled their LA festival this weekend at LA State Historic Park featuring M.I.A. and N.E.R.D, but this line-up in New York City is still going on as planned next Saturday, July 24th. But not to worry Los Angeles, the HARD Summer festival featuring Soulwax and Crystal Castles is still moving full steam ahead to be held at LA State Historic Park on Saturday, August 7th.

Here is the press release regarding the cancellation of HARD LA:

“LOS ANGELES –

HARD LA M.I.A. Saturday July 17th has been cancelled, but not due to the lack of support or the full approval from the personnel at the City of Los Angeles and California State Parks who have signed off on our comprehensive security plan. We have decided to instead produce one massive event on August 7th at the same amazing location, the Los Angeles State Historic Park in Downtown Los Angeles.

We continue to work closely with LAFD, LAPD, City of Los Angeles, and California State Parks who continue to support all HARD events and have approved our plan to operate the HARD SUMMER MUSIC FESTIVAL at the Los Angeles State Historic Park on August 7th 2010 featuring Soulwax, Crystal Castles, Major Lazer, Erol Alkan, Diplo, Digitalism and more. HARD NYC M.I.A. in New York July 24 at Governors Island also continues as scheduled.”

See you all at HARD Summer!
