this is the intersection of Melrose Avenue and Fairfax.

see the longish horizontal whiteish bits? those are actually from an electronic billboard atop what i refer to as The Nexis of All Evil.

three sister stores together in a row: Ed Hardy, Christian Audigier, and Crystal Rock. the clothing sold in these stores make my eyes bleed.

Brett Michaels, Hulk Hogan and Jon Gosselin all dress in head to toe Ed Hardy gear, and somehow have fooled themselves into believing they look cool. need i say more?

told you. Nexis of All Evil.

there are other stores, other signs, other lights there as well, though. which produced all the circle-y, vivid, colored, gorgeousness of little balls that i still won't call Bokeh.

this is an entry for Man Met Brill's ridiculously stellar weekly song list in Musically Challenged. Klaxons, Arctic Monkeys, Belle & Sebastian, Radiohead, Muse, and more!

And then the traffic was a state

    So there's an actual person out there to take the blame for the kind of fashion huge permatanned men wear. I say hunt him down and give him a damn good poking with your rainbow brolly :o)

    Oh yeah - this is a cool shot - bokeh, shmokeh, circles of confusion it's all good when it's compelling. Just great!
