The Skirball's "Of All the People in All the World" features an installation exhibit of more than 15 tons of rice (900 million grains total, equaling the population of the Americas) organized to bring local, national and global statistics to life. Each grain of rice represents one individual. Artists from Stan's Cafe arrange the rice to illustrate the statistics and create an evolving landscape of rice and make changes to the piles as they interact with the exhibit's visitors. Today is the event's last day!!!

From The Silent Movie Theater's Toho Festival: Deploy all Monsters comes Destroy All Monsters, a 1968 monster flick that "takes place in the ominous future of 1999 where an improbably-functional United Nations has locked up all of the world's beasties on Monster Island, a land mass off the coast of Japan. When aliens from the moon liberate the monsters, all hell breaks loose. Ishiro Honda’s monster "war to end all wars" epic is like the Robert Altman film of the Toho vaults. It features a cast of 11 famous monsters each of whom could headline their own films, including Godzilla, Rodan, Mothra, Gorosaurus, King Ghidorah and Baragon." Yikes!
