'Project Runway' design guru brings fashion tips to Pasadena

Tim Gunn in Pasadena: The design mentor from TV's "Project Runway" made an appearance last week at Kate Spade in Pasadena. The Pasadena Star News reports:

Gunn offered up spring fashion tips and answered questions from a crowd buoyed by champagne about "Project Runway," the show that made Gunn a household name.

"Floralscapes" appear on L.A. freeways: LAist is reporting that "floralscapes" along L.A. freeways advertising the Toyota Prius are being unveiled:

The mural is a bit disappointing to look at. Don't take that wrong, the idea of merging visual art and native plants along a freeway deserves a big thumbs up. But for using such a beautiful gift from nature, this lacks and leaves too much to be desired.

Castaic Lake Mud Run: A "mud run" fundraiser at Castaic Lake drew an estimated 3,000 people who paid to make their way through a muddy obstacle course. The Daily News reports (click for some hilarious photos):

The sold-out Merrell Down & Dirty Mud Run drew 3,000 scramblers from across the Southland to the Castaic Lake State Recreation Area for 5K and 10K runs and shorter dashes for the kids. … It also raised an estimated $30,000 for Operation Gratitude, which sends care packages and letters to front-line troops overseas.

Here's your YouTube video of the day. The very first YouTube video was uploaded just over five years ago, on April 23, 2005. Here it is (via Huffington Post):

The "floralscapes" is old news. I pass by the one along the 110 everyday and noticed last week that they had returned it to a blank slate. I drove by this morning and now it was a rectangle with blobs of floral color. Is it supposed to be a picture of something?
