Vector Gallery

I was walking around eastern Chinatown, taking picture for the Forgotten Rides blog, when my eye was caught by not just oddly shimmering lights, but a Process cross, and Charles Manson's eyes looking back at me.
I had unwittingly come across JJ Brine's Vector Gallery, a supposedly Satanic art gallery.

Seeing he was in a hurry, I held the door open, and motioned for him to enter.
He stopped dead in his tracks, and with a pissy look, said to me, "You liberals are so exquisite," and pointed to the open doorway, while yelling, "NOW GO!!"
I've never laughed so hard in a stranger's face before.
