Fresh new stuff from TSF.
The Status Faction posted a HUGE hand painted paste in honor of TSF's recent feature on TMZ.
Dig the art, and the commentary that celebrates the accomplishment while at the same time questioning the role of television.
There was also an incredible piece by Inept on this wall. Unfortunately, it was missing by the time we made it over to snap the photo.
Throwie by Otis.
This car a few blocks off Melrose is always dusty and always has tags in the dust. Usually, it is just local kids, but it looks like some big name writers rolled by and hit it up.
Tags from Asert, Jew, Ruets, Struh, KOG and more
Good to see new Hippos on Melrose. (the stickers were peeling so we made sure Herbert stayed up there!)
And TSF is always up in LA. With a recent run down Melrose, any surface that can have a sticker, does.
Filth Face by Dog Byte.
Great combination of Filth Mouths.
On the ever changing combo board.
Also featuring stickers from KH no. 7, Sherm, Chew, SGK, Bran TRB, The Status Faction, TSF, Frank 151.

Thanks to MelroseandFairfax reader film maker Adolfo J Lara, here is a dope new video from Alec, explaining his views on street art, all the while dressed in a tux like his character, Monopoly Man.
Great action, and cool to hear the thoughts and see the studio of the man who is all over LA.
Peep the video here
MelroseandFairfax loves 80's hair rock n' roll, and the best place in Hollywood to rock out like its 1989, is at a Steel Panther show.
Recently moved home from the House of Blues to the Key Club, every Monday night is Steel Panther night. Rock out to your favorite hits from the 80's while your cock is community property. A great place to see celebrities and boobs.
The first Steel Panther show we attended, they brought Chuck Liddell and McLovin up on stage and tried to get them to fight. Then McLovin sang Journey and went back to his porn star he was with who had boobs bigger than his head.
Steel Panther is blowing up and is filming for a TV show on Comedy Central that starts this fall. If you live in LA, Steel Panther is a must.
MelroseandFairfax has been around the globe.
Have traveled through 46 states.
We thought that Florida housed the best place to live--until we moved to LA.
Los Angeles is the place where dreams are made. The place to go big. The place to make a name.
The combination of climate, mountains, beaches, street art and stardom make LA, at least in the eyes of MelroseandFairfax, the best city, anywhere. Period.
We shot these shots of the Hollywood skyline while flying in from a recent jaunt out to the East Coast (its good to be back home).
This hand cut palm tree sticker from TSF has got to be one of our favorite stickers up and running.
So pretty. So LA.
In the middle of the median on Fairfax, this has been running for a long time.
Also featuring MCHN, JTS, Destroy All Design, Howe, Rotting Fresh.

More street action in this clip than all of 'Exit Through the Gift Shop'. Skating, Pasting, Climbing, its got a lot of good footage and well edited.
Peep the video here~

Melrose Music is a Vinyl, Comic, and action figure store on Melrose.
Last week we spotted this couch through the window of the store with a bunch of stickers on it.
When we went in the store, reached behind the counter and pulled out a hole box of stickers circa-early 1980's.
Mostly from rock bands and popular culture figures (Joe Jackson in the hiz-ousse!), it was really cool to step back a few decades.
Crash AGF crashes the party and throws a bomb up on this CBS mural.
The rules of the streets say only go over something if what you bring is better, and even though this clearly isn't the case, it is refreshing to see some illegal bombing in the alleys behind Melrose.
Atlas up top, not sure who the other artists are.
This sketchy cop rolled past like even taking pictures of street art is a crime.
Stickers, tags, RV, Lust, Freesexinthemouth, Hidden Friends, Prefab 77, Scuba, Gift, CLCS, Love Me, Bankrupt Slut, Revok is Dead, Keep it Guilty and more.
