los four

imagine writing scenes as heart wrenching as Eva and Jonas breaking up in the skate park, as beautiful as all the girls supporting Noora while she goes to the doctor, as emotional as Isak finding Even in that schoolyard in the middle of the night and as groundbreaking as Yousef and Sana discussing religion after playing basket ball together and still picking William stepping out of a car as your favorite scene. imagine that!

Twenty-five years ago this week, four Los Angeles policemen — three of them white — were acquitted of the savage beating of Rodney King, an African-American man. Caught on camera by a bystander, graphic video of the attack was broadcast into homes across the nation and worldwide.

Fury over the acquittal — stoked by years of racial and economic inequality in the city — spilled over into the streets, resulting in five days of rioting in Los Angeles. It ignited a national conversation about racial and economic disparity and police use of force that continues today.

“When the verdict came out, it was a stunner for people coast to coast. My jaw dropped,” says Jody David Armour, a criminal justice and law professor at the University of Southern California.

Pacific Standard Time: LA/LA is upon us! 

Over 70 exhibitions across Southern California explore Latin American and Latino/a art in dialogue with Los Angeles.

Four on view at the Getty Center:

Golden Kingdoms: Luxury and Legacy in the Ancient Americas
This major international loan exhibition featuring more than 300 masterpieces, traces the development of luxury arts in the Americas from about 1000 BC to the arrival of Europeans in the early sixteenth century. Recent investigation into the historical, cultural, social, and political conditions under which such works were produced and circulated has led to new ways of thinking about materials, luxury, and the visual arts from a global perspective.

Making Art Concrete
Combining art historical and scientific analysis, experts from the Getty Conservation Institute and Getty Research Institute have collaborated with the Colección Patricia Phelps de Cisneros to examine the formal strategies and material choices of avant-garde painters and sculptors associated with the Concrete art movement in Argentina and Brazil. These works of geometric abstraction, created between 1946 and 1962, are presented alongside information on the way artists pioneered new techniques and materials.

The Metropolis in Latin America:
Focusing on six capitals—Buenos Aires, Havana, Lima, Mexico City, Rio de Janeiro, and Santiago de Chile—this show presents the colonial city as a terrain shaped by Iberian urban regulations, and the republican city as an arena of negotiation of previously imposed and newly imported models, which were later challenged by waves of indigenous revivals. 

Photography in Argentina: Contradiction and Continuity
Comprising three hundred works by sixty artists, this exhibition examines crucial periods and aesthetic movements in which photography had a critical role, producing—and, at times, dismantling—national constructions, utopian visions, and avant-garde artistic trends in Argentina.

Dunes. August 1975.      

“For Denny Livengood, a superintendent at Federal Sign and Signal Corp, signs have beauty, shape and grace and personalities as varied as the artists, glass-blowers, engineers and electricians who work for his company. ‘I suppose if the architects had their way, there’d be no signs on our buildings.’ he said, circling a group of dead bulbs on a sketch of the Dunes sign. ‘And if we had ours, there’d be no buildings, just signs.’ The $500,000 Dunes sign is 18 stories high, weighs almost as much as five 747 jumbo jets, and contains 7,200 light bulbs … Its servicing requires three full-time employees who ride a special monorail elevator inside the structure, which at night is visible to pilots 100 miles away. ‘You have to crawl through the sign and along an outside railing to re-lamp the diamond on top,’ Livengood said. ‘You need a perfect day to do it. No wind, not too hot. Otherwise you’re in trouble up there, with the sign swaying three or four feet.’” – Los Angeles Times 6/19/71

She’s Oblivious, He’s Ridiculous | Hoseok

Prompt: “I’m flirting with you.” from this drabble game [x]. Requested by anon (hi there friend!) For more, request here!

Summary: Hoseok had a problem: there were only two days until prom, and he’s asked you nine times already but you really couldn’t take a hint. Luckily, Hoseok doesn’t know the meaning of giving up.

Genre: Fluff, High School/Prom!AU

Words: 4.1K (This got too long. Sorry anon lol.)

A/N: Honestly, I hate public promposals because they’re really embarrassing. But here’s Hobi doing it anyway because he looooves you. Enjoy!


In the words of the wise Min Yoongi, Hoseok could say that he was very much catastrophically fucked.

He was fucked because their prom was coming up in two days and Hoseok still did not have a date—but it wasn’t from his lack of trying.

In fact, he had promised himself that he would secure himself a date the moment prom season started in order to avoid the situation he was in from happening in the first place.

Unlike most of his awkward peers, he had been excited for prom. Rejection was a word he did not have in his dictionary; he was so sure you would say yes. He wasn’t going to fumble his words when he would utter the three most important syllables of his life (well, his life as of now. It was too early in the game to say the three other most important words to you. He had to be patient for that.) He wasn’t going to mess up because he had been planning his promposal ever since freshman year.

He had known ever since he had laid his eyes on your pretty face that you would be the one. No one else could ever begin to compare—it had to be you.

‘Ride With Norman Reedus’ Season 2 First Look  ||  Yahoo

“I met Dave… he’s a Walking Dead fan, so I met him at a [season] premiere in Los Angeles like four seasons ago,” Reedus said. “I met him, and we started talking and got along really well and swapped numbers and stuff. Then just after we [were renewed for Ride]) Season 2, I was walking through SoHo, and I heard this, ‘Norman!’ I look around, and he’s across the street. He goes, ‘It’s Dave Chappelle! I want to be on your motorcycle show!’ He was like, ‘I called AMC, nobody called me back.’ And then he said, ‘Bradley Cooper, too, he wants to be on your show, too!’

“I was like, ‘That’s happening. I’m going to make that happen.’”  Norman Reedus
