Giant Guitars For Sale, Griffith Observatory Must Be LEGO-ized

New, 3 comments

SUNSET STRIP: Those big guitars that have lived on the Sunset Strip for the past year are being auctioned off for charity this weekend, so it's your chance to get your hands on that giant, jewel-encrusted Katy Perry guitar you've always wanted. The Gibson Foundation put together GuitarTown on the Sunset Strip, which featured ten foot tall Gibson guitars in tribute to the Doors, Ozzy Osbourne, the Runaways, Brian Wilson, and other greats who have graced the Strip. The pieces will all go up for sale tomorrow at Julien's Auctions in Beverly Hills, with proceeds going to the Los Angeles Youth Network, the West Hollywood Arts & Cultural Commission, and the West Hollywood Library.

GRIFFITH PARK: LEGO, your mission is clear: you must produce a LEGO Architecture set for the Griffith Observatory. The people have voted and overwhelmingly said that they'd like to make the Observatory out of little snap-together plastic blocks (the Capitol Records Building and Chinese Theatre also gave strong showings). Make it happen, LEGO! (And, by the way, it should probably come with a little James Dean LEGO person.) [Curbed LA]
