Did you know there’s a Stanley Kubrick exhibit opening up at LACMA this Thursday? It’s in Members-only preview mode at the moment, and you can check out a few photos at C-Monster. It looks like a pretty comprehensive review of the director’s work, including still photography, and even some unfinished projects. There’s no emergency getting over there though, as it’s open through June 30, 2013.

I don’t often post photography, certainly not unless it’s typography related, but these photos of Tokyo in the rain are great. They’re by LA-based photographer Ei Toshinari, and you can check more out at Friends In Tokyo. Starting to feel overdue for a trip back there…

Our Vinyl Weighs A Ton: This Is Stones Throw Records tells the tale of producer/DJ/label owner Peanut Butter Wolf and his LA-based indie record label, Stones Throw. Looks really interesting. On a semi-related note, I interviewed PBW for TH once upon a time.
