the figure 8 wall

from elliott smith posted in music by nevereatshreddedwheat

The mural Elliott Smith stands in front of on the cover of his fifth and final album Figure 8 is located on the wall of the Solutions! audio-video repair shop in Los Angeles.

In 2017 a bar opened next door, and they partially destroyed the mural in order to install some sweet windows. Bar Angeles, named after the Elliott Smith Either/Or track “Angeles," moved that portion of the mural indoors, but that bar has since been replaced by a Filipino restaurant that doesn't seem to have kept the mural as part of its interior decor.

J. G. Ballard wrote the time travel story "The Gentle Assassin" in 1961 and was prescient about the eventual reception of this Eero Saarinen-designed building. It has since been recognized as a Modernist classic.

In December 2017 the U.S. Embassy left this location for its new address in Nine Elms, London.

He sat forward with surprise, pointing through the open window at the graceful beehive curtain-wall of the American Embassy, answering his question.

The driver noticed his interest, flicked away his cigarette. ‘Funny style of place,’ he commented. ‘Can’t understand the Yanks putting up a dump like that.’

‘Do you think so?’ Dr Jamieson asked. ‘Not many people would agree with you.’

The driver laughed. ‘You’re wrong there, mister. I never heard a good word for it yet.’ He shrugged, deciding not to offend his passenger. ‘Still, maybe it’s just ahead of its time.’

Dr Jamieson smiled thinly at this. ‘That’s about it,’ he said, more to himself than to the driver. ‘Let’s say about thirty-five years ahead. They’ll think very highly of it then.’


"The Gentle Assassin", J. G. Ballard
