Angel's Flight and New Year's Day Little Tokyo

If anyone's seen the g-d awful live action Justice League pilot from the 90's they might know it's where the Angel's Flight is located. The Angel's Flight is a railyway car that goes up and down Bunker Hill near the MOCA and Walt Disney Concert Hall. The damn thing's been off for years. I think someone accidentaly died on it due to drinking. Now it's back open and for a penny you can ride the thing. It's just a penny today, prices might soar so try it for cheap.

It's right near the metro to,

Ledbetter spotted

Or really the work of Joe Ledbetter. Looks like he put up his two characters Pico and Wilshire which is a fairly easy to understand inside joke about two streets that meet near the la brea tar pits. Just stumbled upon these near La Brea

Sassy In Red

Hey, it's almost the new year and I'm about to start checking a list, of whoses be naughty and extra naughty. This is a early list of zombie fighting gear. Really, any site carries stuff that can be great for zombie fighting. Look,this site sells bar furniture, check this zombie apocaylpse world chair with a skull for the back.

 and I found a great pair of blood spattered shoes on the same site.

 As one of the CSNstores carries Funtasma Women's Bloody White Patent / Red Blood Splatter in all sizes, it also carries a bunch of other products for those with darker takes. The shoe selection doesn't stop with blood splatter.

On the go or a busy Mom fending off the undead. Do it in style with these

The skull sleave and skull diaper bag

How about some wallpaper that makes you feel at home in a zombie virus world

My girlfriend will be reviewing these scary beauties in a upcoming review. I'll also have a greater list of zombie fighter clothes to wear.

Got a letter from a friend who drew some jokes we have together
