Today's observation du jour regarding Angels Flight: the Downtown funicular, in a scene evoking its authentic pre-1969 setting, makes an appearance in a You Tube video for the End Times album by the band EELS. Angels Flight shows up right around 1:47 (and again later in a mystery location.) (The film is by Norwood Cheek.)
