Mack Reed's website LAVoice.org already stood apart among local blogs as a place that welcomes disparate voices to have their say about whatever is on their minds. He writes more of the posts than anyone else, but lately the flow of contributions from others outnumbers his own. As of today, he's adding a new feature called L.A. Vision. Reed explains:
As you may know, LAVoice.org is a weblog/online community for all of Los Angeles - we are an open web space that gives all voices of this city a place to express themselves.
But sometimes words aren't enough. Life in L.A. is something beyond news or opinion: It's more like an emotion, a condition of the soul, the stomping ground for your id.
L.A. Vision is a new experiment in multimedia blogging. We invite you to submit your latest vision of life in Los Angeles - a visual artwork, an MP3, an animation or a short film, and help us form a community for L.A.'s creative thinkers. Consider this a blank page, and think of how you'd fill it.
He gives simple instruction on how to post your stuff. First up is a Flash video of the war dead memorial in the sand at Santa Monica Beach, shot and contributed by reader joanvt.
