Ric Erickson, editor of MetropoleParis, each week offers two "Paris Posters of the Week" - but don't expect anything new there. It's August and he's one more Parisian taking the month off - he's in Manhattan or Queens at the moment. Perhaps he'll post what's on the walls there.
As his site is somewhat a sister site to the weekly Just Above Sunset, or at least its inspiration, and he is Our Man in Paris in those pages, providing a parallel Hollywood posters feature would be cool. But we don't have the kiosks and poster thing out here - and the billboards on the Sunset Strip don't change weekly, even if some are bizarre, and some cover a whole wall. It's just not the same thing.
But then there is something out here that will do for "odd things photographed head-on through glass" - at the corner of Wilshire and Fairfax, at the old shuttered "Google-style" coffee shop (it's only used in movies now when the location director needs a fifties scene). There's history in the windows - old newspaper front pages - 1921, 1940, 1945, 1964, 1977.
