Los Angeles is getting a pop-up pizza museum this October. $30 gets you an hour of all the selfies you can take with a pizza. And by pizza I mean something that looks like pizza but that you can sit on or climb on or otherwise molest without all those icky calories and grease.

That melty, cheesy, doughy goodness is stuff dreams are made of and we are making those dreams a reality - an extra large reality!

Room after room of immersive sensory overload, captivating experiences, all for the love of pizza! Selfie stations, cat walks, giant installations, videos, oversized cheese pool, hall of pizza fame - you name it, we got it!

I think my fat self needs to pose in front of the neon sign reading "eat what makes you happy" and show all these size zeros what it really means.

Elon Musk revealed Boring Company's first video of their tunnel under Los Angeles, here: https://www.instagram.com/p/BinoVT6Acpd/

Different publications are giving different locations for this tunnel. Some are saying it's his R&D tunnel under his SpaceX lair in Hawthorne - running under 120th St between Crenshaw Blvd and Hawthorne Blvd. Others, like the LA Times, are saying it's under Sepulveda Blvd from Pico Blvd to Culver Blvd. Either way, once he gets a few safety sign-off he's planning to open the tunnel to pedestrians and bicycles for a while. I'll see what it takes to get myself into it. In the video the tunnel looks too small to be of use for easing traffic congestion so I wonder what's next.

Los Angeles is getting a new pizza festival. $45 gets you all the pizza you can eat along with demos of dough tossing and pizza making.

"The new fest promises unlimited pizza from 30 vendors, including a sprinkling from L.A. with a few from Arizona, Nevada, Georgia and even Naples, Italy. Headlining with demos and prominent placement are Naples’s L’Antica Pizzeria Da Michele, founded in 1870 and of Eat, Pray, Love fame, and Antica Pizzeria Port’Alba, Naples’s oldest pizzeria-tavern, founded in 1738. On the local front, look for Beverly Hills’ Da Pasquale, mobile pizza oven Fahrenheit LA, West Hollywood’s Prova and even LACMA’s Ray’s and Stark Bar, among others. The rundown’s missing a few of the city’s pizza heavy hitters, but still looks like a fine way to sample pies from the area and beyond, especially if you’re looking to try some of the oldest recipes from Naples."

Over on Reddit, Los Angeles mayor Garcetti shared this picture with the caption: "First look at a rendering of the new proposed gondola that could take fans from Union Station straight to Dodger Stadium. The system is expected to be able to transport 5,000 passengers per hour in each direction and could potentially begin service by opening day 2022."

Pacific Winnetka is the first US theater to replace its projection screen with an LED screen. No more flickering light from a window at the back of the theater. It's the end of an era.

Samsung Electronics America boasts that the screen can display true black and is unaffected by ambient lighting. During a presentation Friday for members of the press, the screen was noticeably brighter and displayed richer detail during trailer showings for “Black Panther” and “A Wrinkle in Time.”

That 5.3 earthquake LA felt today was known about 10 seconds before it was felt. Pretty cool stuff.

If the City of Los Angeles decides to operate the local broadband service I sure hope they plan to improve it. I get pretty good speed from my ISP, but nothing like fiber. Actually, the part of Los Angeles where I live seems to get a pittance from the City of any real services other than trash collection and police helicopters. Chances are nothing would change for me if they took over the service.

"Los Angeles owns a network of fiber-optic cable that runs through every part of the city,'' Krekorian said. "I want to see if we can maximize its use and ensure that everyone has access to fast, affordable internet services.''
