Naturally, the one person who positively identified the location of the sign -- the intersection of Halen Ct.,, Lenawee Ave. and Ivy Waywas in the Blair Hills section of Culver City -- was Doug Lemon, "Where Am I" superstar.

To judge by the banners now on display at Culver Crossroads at the corner of Sepulveda Blvd. and Washington Blvd in Culver City, there's going to be a new barber in town. Great news for those who are currently waiting in line for upwards of an hour to get a cut at Floyd's on Venice (in Mar Vista).
Not much info about Ziggy's since, as the banners indicate, the salon is an Aussie thing. The web site indicates the basic services enumerated below, but before you balk at the prices, note that these are Australian dollar rates. After doing the conversion, we're talking about $19.50 for a men's buzz cut and $75 for a ladies medium style cut. Or, of course, they may have a whole different list of services for their American customers. Stay tuned.
This Saturday, January 31, at 8:00 pm, the Culver City Symphony will perform works by Sibelius, Mendelssohn, Glazunov, Grieg and Britten at Veteran's Memorial Auditorium. The Glazunov concerto will be particularly unique -- a rare classical pairing of the saxophone with a string orchestra. The Culver City Symphony is conducted by Frank Fetta, and Mathew Ennis will serve as the solo saxophonist during the Glazunov piece.
The program will include:
Sibelius: Canzonetta, Opus 62a (1911)
Mendelssohn: String Symphony No. 10 (1823)
Adagio - Allegro - Più Presto
Glazunov: Saxophone Concerto, Opus 109 (1934)
Grieg: Holberg Suite (1884)

Over the course of the next couple of months, The Culver City Cultural Affairs Foundation will present a series of three 'architectureTALKS' -- a that will shine the spotlight on some of the internationally renowned architects based in Culver City.

Moderated by architectural writer Thomas Aujero Small, Pali will discuss his work in the creation of the Wallis Annenberg Center for the Performing Arts in Beverly Hills. The recently completed and much-celebrated “Wallis” transformed the Spanish Mission Revival United States Post Office…Continue
Here's the scoop from Christopher Patrick King, who serves as Vice Chair of the committee:
Ideally, we would love to have volunteers to come as a “team” of 4 people (work group, volunteer clubs, religious groups, family/friends, etc). We’ll be disbursing volunteers on the night of the Count in groups of 4, so if you come as a team then you can go out with your own friends and colleagues. Individuals are welcome too! We would simply plug them in with other groups that do not have the full 4 members.
The schedule is as follows:

Over the last couple of weeks, the art collective CYRCLE painted five new murals on the walls of the creative offices at 10301 - 10395 Jefferson Blvd. in Culver City. Here's what the duo had to say about the pieces:
"The plan for the murals is to create a modern, contemporary reinterpretation of Neoclassical and Renaissance iconography, combined with the feel of traditional 18th century engraving techniques. The murals’ message is rooted in the concept of ascension and attempts to inspire viewers to rise above and look up in life.”
The murals really are an embarrassment of riches.…Continue
