WE SPOKE a little bit about Pacific Standard Time: Art in L.A. 1945-1980, the sprawling art exhibition that stretches across the basin, finally joining L.A.'s art institutions like sturdy links on a chain (More on that later). Part of the exhibition, however, includes this video of rapepr/actor Ice Cube musing on his city.
He is echoing many of the observations, concerns we've been discussing thus far and he's doing more than a bit of myth busting himself -- but as a booster in the very sense you all will be talking and writing about -- someone who lives, works and understands L.A. and its all its complexity.
This from L.A.-ist:
"so what" to people deeming L.A. "eyesore after eyesore," claiming, "They don't know the L.A. I know. The good, the bad and the ugly about L.A." His main stop is the Eames House in the Pacific Palisades, where he reveals his solid knowledge of architecture and design.

Now, I'm off to "go get lost"
