Cheech & Chong: Still Rollin’ – Celebrating 40 Years of Up in Smoke
Grammy Museum at L.A. Live
800 West Olympic Boulevard
Los Angeles
213 765 6800
http://www.grammymuseum.org
In downtown Los Angeles at the Grammy Museum, there’s the exhibition "CHEECH & CHONG: STILL ROLLIN' - CELEBRATING 40 YEARS OF UP IN SMOKE." The exhibit explores what made the world fall in love with East L.A. native Richard "Cheech" Marin and Canadian Tommy Chong, while chronicling the development and success of their first feature-length film, Up In Smoke. Items on display will include the original marked-up script from Up In Smoke, the master tape for the soundtrack album, comedy sketches, and selections from Marin's "Blazing Chicano Guitars" collection, among other items. The selections from Marin's guiar-art collection include Chaz Bojorquez' "Lester William Polsfuss"; Jaime "GERMS" Zacarias' "Germtar" and John Valadez' "Sombrero Hormigas."
As the first strictly counterculture comics, Cheech & Chong helped change the dialogue, and ultimately attitudes, about marijuana use. As recording artists, they utilized the studio much like musicians do—a place to improvise and experiment as they turned their comedy routines into full-length albums. They released an eponymous LP in 1971 featuring studio sketches including "Waiting for Dave," "Cruisin' with Pedro," and "Trippin' in Court." The album's 1972 follow-up, Big Bambú, peaked at No. 2 on the Billboard 200 and earned a GRAMMY nomination for Best Comedy Album. The following year's GRAMMY-winning Los Cochinos also charted at No. 2 and included the novelty hit "Basketball Jones." These albums, and the ones that followed, served as a template for future comedy albums and stoner films.

The Roots of Monozukuri: Creative Spirit in Japanese Automaking
Petersen Automotive Museum
6060 Wilshire Boulevard
Los Angeles
http://www.petersen.org
For 60 years, Japanese cars have had a presence in the United States, having begun to challenge domestic market dominance in the 1970s. No American exhibit has adequately explored the associated synthesis of Eastern and Western automobile manufacturing philosophies and methods. Monozukuri (pronounced moh-noh ZOO-koo-ree) — interpreted as “the art, science, and craft of making things” — is a recently conceived but critical concept that explains these phenomena.
Carefully selected sets of automobiles, illuminate key aspects of Monozukuri, including creative engineering, craftsmanship, efficiency, endurance, and utility.

You will leave this exhibition with a deeper understanding of how the Japanese automotive industry became a force to be reckoned with, and why Japanese cars are now essential to American life.
