Santa Monica voted overwhelmingly for Barack Obama in 2008 and 2012, and his approval rating among Democrats remains high at 82%. That hasn’t stopped one unknown artist in the Santa Monica area from putting up the above posters declaring the President’s job performance (or golf game) to be “SUB PAR”.

We assume Burning Man has to have at least one giant disco ball, right? John Rifkind and Scott London provided the humongous dance-magnet you see before you, a thirteen-foot disco ball made from more than 7,000 toothbrushes, recycled by schoolkids. Rifkind is a founder of the legendary Loud Records, while London helped start Baby Phat and Zoo York, and is also president of Wu-Wear. They started a program to educate kids about sustainability as it pertains to the more than 1,000,000,000 toothbrushes thrown into landfills each year. It’s called ReVITALize Toothbrush Coalition. You can check it out right here and see the orb glow in front of a giant rubber ducky below the jump.

In our quest to get every L.A. Mayoral candidate on the record about their favorite taco (Eric Garcetti’s answer here), we turn to Emanual Pleitez, who describes himself as a progressive Los Angeles native who is running an unconventional campaign. Get more info on the candidate here. So, Emanuel, what’s your favorite taco?
“1. Mojica Tacos in evenings/late nights off Alhambra Ave and Hollister Ave
2. Carnitas Michoacan off Soto St and Whittier to sit down late night
3. Hecho en Mexico on Huntington Dr if you’d like to get served
4. Tacos El Gavilan on Washington and Central
5. El Sombrero on Main St just north of Washington
6. And, when I want to accompany tacos with a tamal or torta, then it’s all about Tamale Man and King Torta in El Sereno, respectively
**Above all, though, my mom makes the meanest tacos and burritos in LA. Join our campaign and you’ll get access to some. As Mayor of Los Angeles, I will do what I can to increase the amount and quality of tacos available for all Angelenos.”
