OK, Sherman, Set The WayBack Machine for 1973 – LAFlash!

OK, first… what the heck is a wayback machine?
On the Rocky and Bullwinkle Show, 2 characters, Mr. Peabody and Sherman, would travel back in time via the wayback, to learn about history.

And LAFlash?

It was a celebration of Los Angeles style in 1973, told by photographers.
Stop laughing. It may be coming back.
No, seriously, you have to click on the link to check these clothes (and struts) out.
At least we know the event is coming back. The 2008 version.
This Saturday to Los Angeles County Museum.

DJs ( DJ CArlos Nino palying a blend of 1973 and now made and recorded in LA), projected images (LA Times photography series, LACMA Teens Street project) book signings (Lauren Greenfield,Henry Wessel, Larry Sultan, and more) gallery tours, Film (Thom Anderson-LA Plays Itself), and all covered by Wireimage photographers so it will be posted.
Oh, we’ll be there too. To give a slightly photoinduced.com spin to the review.

It seems like with Fashion Week dominating NYC, this is a very appropriate event. Take a look at what people are really wearing on the left coast.
And everyone can also share globally by clicking on the sites and seeing what people are wearing, and what the designers think you should be wearing.
The LA event should be more like a happening, though. A photographic, cultural happening.
And you know how much we like those.
If you’re in town, check it out. If not check out the site, and the uploaded photos when they become available.
I wonder if Levis, Chuck Taylors, and a T-shirt will make the grade.

Here is a little cartoon fun for your Friday. Mr. Peabody and Sherman Explain It All RE: WayBack Machine.
