it's in santa monica, ca at the promenade right now. i had heard about it being in the area and went down last night to see it. it was closed up but it's there for the next several weeks.
you can record your own oral history or your friends and they give you a copy and a copy goes to the library of congress. the website says they only ask for a $10 donation but it costs them $250. what a great organization. we're going to make a reservation and go back. i really wish i would have known about the whole oral history thing when my parents were alive. what a tremendous idea.
