Lenin visits Los Angeles

So I saw this at the corner of 4th and La Brea yesterday so I had to stop and snap a couple of photos.

Now I’m pretty sure that’s Stalin’s Lenin’s head, right? But as I got closer and inquired of the passing pedestrians what the hell it was I discovered that it just recently went up and might be a part of the Ace Museum, which is the building right behind the statue. I’d never heard of the Ace Musuem and the building and the facility was oddly surrounded by wire fence so the whole thing could just be one giant publicity art stunt or something.

But what was even more fun, closer I got, I noticed the hot mama in the silver form fitting dress striking some incredibly suggestive poses. You can see her in the next pic down left.

At first I thought she was being manhandle by some dudes and I was going to have to swoop in and save the day, but then I realized – Oh, photo shoot!

Here’s another shot where you can see the photo crew twisting her into a sexy pretzel against Stalin’s Lenin’s giant melon.

Well, kinda. It still looks like she’s being accosted.

But the more important question is: What’s the deal with the little balancing baby on top of that chrome noggin?

Ah, art.

    Yeah…. that’s definitely Lenin, not Stalin.

  2. Er, that’s what I said, Lenin. Heh.

    Thanks, David. Got my communist dictator’s mixed up.

    Any idea what it’s all about though?

    Lenin was the good guy and Stalin was the bad guy. If you want to find out what Lenin was about, read anything that he wrote. He was for peace, sovereignty and land reform for the peasantry. Stalin killed socialists and eventually had a sympathizer kill Trotsky in Mexico with an ice pic to his head. Stalin was a dictator, that had this huge bureaucracy that sucked the lifeblood from the masses, much like the capitalists do in this country and around the world. That was not socialism or communism.

    Comment awaiting moderation???? Censorship????

    • Yeah we’re all about censorship here, Mary. Glad you’re not one of those people who jumps to conclusions.

      You’ve never posted here before so our site instantly puts you on moderation until you can be reviewed and cleared as not spam.

      There has never been nor will there ever be a pure communism or capitalism. Dictators have arisen from every type of political and economic system and will continue to do so until the end of time.

      But thanks for the history lesson.
