After the jump, Dali’s creepy, surreal art at LACMA and a zombie magazine…

Dali: Painting & Film opens at LACMA today.

Salvadore Dali knew his way around Hollywood, collaborating with Hitchcock and Disney as well as being influenced by Cecil B. DeMille and the Marx Brothers. This exhibit’s exploration of those connections will be rife with surreal images that can be considered creepy to say the least, incorporating film, photography, painting, sculpture and texts. Group costume inspiration, anyone? On view through January 6th at LA County Museum of Art, 5905 Wilshire Blvd., Los Angeles.

LAT magazine rises from the dead as a monthly and the October issue manages to avoid Halloween.

Today, the Los Angeles Times Magazine became the title of the LA Times Sunday magazine again, driving a stake through the heart of West in the process. Their stated desire to be “richer and more substantial” succeeds if what you care about is shopping, whether it’s for a kick-y little vacation property among the savages in Baja, furnishings with “the look of Mexico” for said property, a personal assistant or jewelry.
