The crowd at Our Favorite Starbucks was Singing the Blues this morning as word spread that the Monstrosity Under Construction at 7th and San Vicente -- better known as Casa del Bozo for its resemblance to a circus attraction -- has been painted an Eye-Popping shade of "Periwinkle Blue." "It can't be," said one local resident, "What are they trying to do, blind us?!?" Actually, I've done some research on the architect, Jennifer Wen, and it appears that she's simply trying to get our attention. According to her website, her mission is "to create uplifting architecture that profoundly influences people's everyday lives." Congratulations, Ms. Wen, you've profoundly influenced us. The question, however, isn't "Wen" but "Why." For the love of God, "Why ...?!?"
