Charlotte Gainsbourg/Beck Album Details →
I was really into C. Gainsbourg’s last album. Air produced it, and you could definitely tell. I had a hard time getting behind Modern Guilt, but I feel like Beck’s collaboration with Charlotte could definitely bring him back to a funkier, more iconic sound. Fingers crossed.

$10 and under Vietnamese fare in Highland Park, found via Jonathan Gold’s list of 99 Essential Dining Experiences. I want to go to there.

Dangerous Minds | Brian Eno’s 77 Million Paintings →
Oh no, now we have to go to Long Beach. The show runs Sept. 12 - Dec. 13, and Brian Eno be giving a talk about it on Sept. 20. I’m not impressed by the few images I’ve seen so far, but it’s hard for me to believe that he could do anything that wasn’t incredible, so I’m giving it a shot.

Park[ing] Day LA - September 18, 2009 →
Park[ing] Day is an annual celebration of public space! Parking spots around Los Angeles are reclaimed and converted to ephemeral “parks.” These parks are astonishingly beautiful, creative and funny, and I think I want to help make one this year…
