As some of you may know, I just moved to Venice. Beach, not Italy. Every new town has its quirks, Venice perhaps particularly so... you know, because it's been the pot-smoking capital of the world for thirty years. But every town's gotta be famous for something.
Now that I've settled in enough to get out and about in my new city (or sub-neighborhood of Los Angeles, I'm still not quite sure which), I finally had the opportunity to take a little photo tour down Lincoln Blvd, Venice's main north/south drag. This would be a little less bizarre if all these signs hadn't all come from a roughly two mile stretch down one single street.
A) That somebody would think upside-down signs would be a good marketing ploy real estate company, or
B) The stupidy needed to accidentally install a billboard upside-down.
Then I saw another upside-down Piken sign across town. Apparently, this really is their marketing campaign.
Speaking of bullet-points, I then saw the store underneath. Is this...
A) ...a misspelling of the word "canning", as in "to put something in a can". Not sure what this "something" would be in a furniture store, though.
B) ...a term I've never heard of before, involving the act of putting canes into something, like sticking bamboo rods into a couch or something. I feel like it would be easier, in this case, to just say "we make shit out of bamboo."
C) ...an acknowledgement that they actually cane people, like in Singapore?
I like option C) the best.
