Over the weekend I unexpectedly dropped by LACMA, saw some sweet art (including one of my favorite paintings) and wandered the grounds a bit. The coolest part was seeing tar randomly bubbling out of the ground in random spots around the park. Did you know this happened? The tar bubble-ups are pretty easy to find, you just look for the pile of tar-covered sticks. My friend who took me had been talking about how marvelous poking tar with sticks was. I was incredulous. How cool could poking the ground with sticks be? I was Incredulous until I POKED TAR WITH A STICK! It was awesome. You need to go try it. I wish I would’ve taken a few more photos, but alas, that is what you get. The bubbling tar does raise some interesting questions though. With tar randomly bubbling up all over the place why isn’t it doing it elsewhere in LA? Is it and I just don’t know about it? What’s LA’s tar-status outside the tar pits? Anyone?
