Use DB::raw(...).

In your case:

public static create($data) {
  $data['b'] = DB::raw('now()');
  parent::create($data);
}

why not use date("Y-m-d H:i:s") ?

Worked a treat!

The reason I didn't use date("Y-m-d H:i:s") was that I wasn't really all that interested in NOW() as the actual function. I'm doing some work with PostGIS which requires a whole load of stuff like:

$this->geom_point = DB::raw('ST_SetSRID(ST_MakePoint(' . $this->longitude . ',' . $this->latitude . '), ' . $this->srid . ')');

So I was looking for the more generic solution.
