Do You Love LA? Frank Escher Does.

To celebrate the launch of LA mag's online short film competition, Get LA, mid-century mod enthusiast and "Ask Chris" columnist Chris Nichols has put together his ode to the city we all love. Nichols asked 21 "of the city’s optimists, futurists, and dreamers" to perform a 1956 song used by GM as a "paean to the world of tomorrow." Included in the video are architects Frank Escher and Dion Neutra, City Councilman Tom LaBonge (a pleasantly raspy baritone), and LA Conservancy executive director Linda Dishman, among others. The magazine is accepting entries from now through March 3, must be no longer than three minutes, and should be about LA. [LA Mag]
