The Museum of Contemporary Art in downtown Los Angeles is celebrating graffiti, but not on its own property. MOCA's pyramid-topped headquarters on Grand Avenue is conspicuously tag-free. In Little Tokyo, the museum has always painted over the graffiti that appears occasionally on the outside walls of the Geffen Contemporary, its satellite warehouse exhibition space. And now that its latest show — proudly billed as the first major American museum survey of street art — has triggered a predictable upsurge of vandalism in the area, MOCA is even cleaning up graffiti on neighboring businesses.

A group of renters in Fullerton didn't know who to believe when it came to the safety of an apartment complex severely damaged by Friday night's big shaker. The quake left cracks in several walls, some of them two inches wide and about 30 feet in length. Managers of the Camden Parkside apartment complex in the 2600 block of Associated Road advised nearly two dozen tenants that they could reenter their units until told otherwise. PHOTOS: 5.1 earthquake rattles L.A., Orange County However, the Fullerton Fire Department had declared the apartment block uninhabitable because of structural damage.

Mister Cartoon eyeballed a blank spot on the giant graffiti mural and rattled his can of spray paint. An aerosol hiss filled the air. With a few fluid swipes of his beefy arm, an image began to take shape: a cluster of storm clouds massing above a Windex blue hot rod. "If I knew the cops were coming to bust me, I could probably finish this whole thing in an hour," the street artist joked.

DARRINGTON, Wash. - The stories rang with fear and frustration, pain and the occasional flicker of joy. But the storytellers Wednesday were not the survivors of the deadly mudslide that slammed into the Stillaguamish Valley. For the first time since a mountain of mud buried a small rural enclave called Oso and largely cut Darrington off from the rest of the world, a small number of rescuers spoke at length of their long hours on "the pile," of plucking the living from a square mile of mud and debris, of tagging the dead bodies of neighbors.

ST. LOUIS -- To a large segment of the Dodgers fan base, this was an outrage: Mark Ellis slid home with the potential go-ahead run on Friday, and replays appeared to indicate that St. Louis Cardinals catcher Yadier Molina might have missed the tag. It was, as they say, a bang-bang play. St. Louis right fielder Carlos Beltran caught a fly ball, then threw a strike to Molina, who caught the ball and braced as Ellis approached. That play -- in the 10th inning of the Dodgers' 3-2 loss to the Cardinals in Game 1 of the National League Championship Series -- might have been challenged under the replay system expected to be implemented next year by Major League Baseball.

Dear Fashion Police: I purchased a casual outfit last summer that I didn't know was made of rayon and needed to be dry-cleaned. I washed it several times, and now it's ruined. Maybe you'd like to inform your readers to watch out for things like this. --LEARNED MY LESSON Dear Learned: Were you unaware that the outfit was made of rayon because you didn't check the fiber-content tag, or because there wasn't one in the first place? If it's the former, shame on you for not being a diligent consumer.

Granada Hills Kennedy beat Chatsworth, 1-0, to win the City Section softball championship Wednesday, but the victory came with some controversy. With the bases loaded in the bottom of the second inning, Kellie Mason hit a line drive to second base that was ruled a catch. Ashley Waters then threw home for the double play, but the catcher did not tag Danielle Estrada, who was the runner from third. Kennedy Coach Craig Becker had Estrada return to third and tag up as Chatsworth left the field, and because Chatsworth didn't throw to third to appeal, the run counted.

Dan Harmon was unceremoniously dumped from his NBC comedy series "Community" after the end of last season, but he apparently bears no ill will toward the people who are keeping the series going. And for the first time, he's discussing publicly the source of his feud with star Chevy Chase. On Wednesday, Harmon participated in one of Reddit's "IAma" Q&As, in which people from various walks of life answer reader questions. Of the dispute with Chase, which resulted in Harmon swearing at the star during the "Community" wrap party and playing angry voicemails from Chase in front of an audience, Harmon wrote: WATCH: Fall 2012 TV previews "He refused to do the "tag" for the Digital Estate Planning episode (the 8 bit video game episode)

"He was trying to tag the heifer and the heifer tagged him back," Jim Luetkemeyer said.

Ever lust after a product displayed in a store that's closed for the day? Or struggle to find the item you saw in a magazine or YouTube advertisement? Maybe you're curious about something on a shelf but can't find a salesperson to offer more information. A British company called Powa Technologies said it has the solution to all of those consumer conundrums in the form of an e-commerce platform it calls a retail “evolution and revolution.” Powa, started by serial entrepreneur Dan Wagner and operating on the nearly $100 million it's raised in recent months, unveiled its closely held digital shopping tool PowaTag on Tuesday.

SWANSEA, Wales - The Patricia is a small, hardworking ship that putters around the coast of England and Wales, tending buoys and lighthouses. At 283 feet long, it's about a quarter the length of Cunard's vaunted Queen Mary 2 ocean liner. And yet the Patricia is even more properly British and perhaps even more luxurious, having as it does six handsomely furnished, spacious passenger cabins on its upper decks - one of which once was Prince Philip's cabin of choice. And now it would be ours.

Police are asking for the public's help in finding the person or persons responsible for tagging seven cars in Pacific Palisades with swastikas and racial slurs on Sunday. Seven cars parked curbside in a 3-square-mile area north and south of Sunset Boulevard were defaced between 4 a.m. and 8 a.m., according to Los Angeles police. Maritza Roberts, whose car was among those targeted, told KTLA that she felt “violated, invaded, disgusted” after she discovered a swastika and an apparent misspelling of the word “fuhrer” spray-painted on her vehicle.

It had already been a strong year for films with predominantly black casts - the kind of year that makes bloggers pull out their laptops and write posts about a “new moment.” "Fruitvale Station" was the sensation of the Sundance Film Festival. "The Butler" was a major commercial crossover. "12 Years A Slave” is the art-house breakout of the fall and an early Oscar favorite. A big holiday hit was hardly needed to make people realize that long-held tropes about movies with black casts - or, for that matter, aimed at black audiences - were bunk.

The deep green Coliseum field turned cardinal and gold, swarmed by thousands of fans, enveloped in thousands of screams, a heart of Trojans nation beating together in dizzy disbelief. In the middle stood one sweating man who was somehow bigger than all of it, his giant white-sleeved arms raised above his giant smile, his massive shoulders carrying this bear of a victory. He was rocked, he was hugged, he was loved like no man has been loved here since the early days of Pete Carroll.

ATLANTA  - Dee Gordon was adamant: When he attempted to steal second base in the ninth inning of the Dodgers' 4-3 defeat to the Atlanta Braves Friday night, he was safe. "I'm not going to harp on what he called, but I thought I was safe," Gordon said. Gordon entered the game as a pinch-runner for catcher A.J. Ellis , who drew a one-out walk in the ninth. With pinch-hitter Andre Ethier at the plate, Gordon bolted for second base. Second base umpire Bill Miller ruled that Braves shortstop Andrelton Simmons received the throw from catcher Gerald Laird and tagged Gordon before he touched second base.

Californians say the state's water supply system has serious problems that require improvement, but they are unwilling to spend billions of dollars in ratepayer and taxpayer funds on the task, according to a new USC Dornsife/Los Angeles Times poll. The results suggest an uphill fight for proponents of a state water bond and for a proposal to replumb the Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta, the transfer point for Northern California supplies delivered to the San Joaquin Valley and urban Southern California.
