Judd Apatow took to Twitter to vent his outrage over the move, calling it “disgraceful,” and Jimmy Kimmel replied to that tweet, calling the decision to pull the pic was "an un-American act of cowardice.” Steve Carell, who saw New Regency cancel his North Korea-set movie project today, said it's a “sad day for creative expression.” No…

I wish I could say more about Bill Block and this sweet pictorial of the many facets of L.A. Judaica, but I can only tip a yarmulke to the artist and researchers who put this one together. Certainly Jews have been a big part of Los Angeles from as early as the Mexican colonial pueblo and Jacob Frankfort, who joined the ciudad de Los Angeles in 1841.

    Those snow people from Frozen have taken out one of my favorite little moments at Disneyland: the charming little windmill scene from Walt Disney’s 1937 film The Old Mill. The miniature has been a part of the Storybook Land Canal Boats ride for decades. It is being replaced this week with a model of the town of Arendelle from Frozen. In 2012, a princess meet-and-greet replaced the sweet Carnation Plaza Gardens, Walt’s favorite place to dance.

The peculiar subtitle confers a certain gravitas, instantly transforming a title that could belong to a superhero flick into something more cerebral.

    As the year races to an end, the theatres are piling up with a trio of brilliant British biopics. After Stephen Hawking, I wonder who is better known, Alan Turing or JMW Turner? Regardless, with these two films, both will be deservedly better known. We have already covered the Hawking biopic The Theory of Everything and below are the other two. An intriguing common element among all three lead characters in these films? Despite the British accent being universally accepted as indicative of erudition, each of these British characters have trouble communicating. Mr. Turner Mike Leigh’s film…

    Tis the season for some improv comedy and holiday sketches from Chicago’s venerable comedy theatre. The half dozen performers currently in residence at LJP are nimble and provide an evening full of laughs. The high wire style of improv leaves the audience and the performers equally unprepared for the twists and turns. Inevitably, a few efforts fall flat, but when the troupe is on a great riff, the results soar. Coming from a venerable roster of veterans (ranging from the recently deceased Mike Nichols through Saturday Night Live alums John Belushi, Dan Aykroyd and Gilda Radner to current…

    Many decades ago the steady throbbing beat of “Hypnotized” played in a loop in my brain during swim team practice. I knew the British blues band Fleetwood Mac from their mesmerizing instrumental “Albatross” and always thought that their lead singer was performing in a low ceilinged club for “Oh Well.” I would rattle the cages of anyone I cared about, encouraging them to check out recent albums like Bare Trees and Heroes Are Hard to Find. On the latter, the fluid guitar work of Bob Welch, coupled with the steady engine room of founding members John McVie on bass and Mick Fleetwood…

Catan was influenced by such legendary composers as Ravel, Puccini and Debussy, and his masterpiece, Florencia En El Amazonas premiered in 1996  at our own L.A.

    When looking for a hotel in LA my tendency is to look on the south side of the Santa Monica Mountains.

Situated within a potential walk to Universal City (and a convenient Metro stop), the hotel is located just past the Hollywood Bowl as you head north on Cahuenga. Opened in 2011, the modern design of this Studio City venue is evident from the outside. Covered parking near the entrance is convenient, with the lobby split between the front…

While many of the stars stay in Deer Valley, a handful of them will actually stay close to Old Town and all of the action it provides.

    The beloved all-ages venue in the far east Valley that has given thousands of local kids their start in music, tens of thousands of poets a chance to read their work, and probably millions of young people to tag/sticker bathrooms (and hallways…and sidewalks…and rear exterior walls…and everything else), and just generally get the F outta the house without having to go to the mall–will be closing at the end of the month. I regret to pass this news on so late but I only just found out myself. Extremely patient and awesome owner Dave Politi founded the Cobalt Cafe…

    This is the one of several posts by us outlining charities and non-profit causes near to our heart.  Its not always about monetary donations for these groups. Tight on funds?  They welcome your time and talents to help them as a volunteer as well.  When its all said and done you feel closer and connected to your community when you help it out.  And isn’t giving of yourself all that matters this time of year regardless if its Christmas, Hanukkah or Pagan rituals? No matter their race, gender, or income level, all babies have one very basic thing in common: They Need Diapers. And lots of…

  • CityDig: We Like This Map of Jewish L.A. a Whole Latke

    Glen Creason
    17 Dec 2014 | 4:23 pm
    With menorahs being lit and “Barukh atah…” prayers being recited all over town, it seems only appropriate to celebrate the Jewish contingent of Los Angeles via map. I wish I could say more about Bill Block and this sweet pictorial of the many facets of L.A. Judaica, but I can only tip a yarmulke to the artist and researchers who put this one together. Certainly Jews have been a big part of Los Angeles from as early as the Mexican colonial pueblo and Jacob Frankfort, who joined the ciudad de Los Angeles in 1841. In the first U.S. census there were only eight Jews in the count, but by…
  • Vintage Disneyland is Frozen Out by a New Attraction

    17 Dec 2014 | 3:32 pm
    Those snow people from Frozen have taken out one of my favorite little moments at Disneyland: the charming little windmill scene from Walt Disney’s 1937 film The Old Mill. The miniature has been a part of the Storybook Land Canal Boats ride for decades. It is being replaced this week with a model of the town of Arendelle from Frozen. In 2012, a princess meet-and-greet replaced the sweet Carnation Plaza Gardens, Walt’s favorite place to dance. Sure that ice movie made more than a billion dollars (and you are still humming Let It Go), but go watch The Old Mill, and you’ll be so much…

    The United Sounds of Los Angeles is a series from music writer Matthew Duersten that delves into the most underappreciated, obscure, and indispensable L.A. albums. The Album The Flying Burrito Brothers – The Gilded Palace of Sin (1969) The Backstory In February 1968, 21-year-old Gram Parsons, a songwriter and trust fund baby from Winter Haven, Florida, met Chris Hillman, a soft-spoken guitarist and mandolinist from San Diego, while standing in a line in Beverly Hills bank. The 23-year-old Hillman was veteran of the SoCal bluegrass scene and was then playing bass for L.A. pop princes The…
  • The LAPD Will Be a Body-Camera Force

    17 Dec 2014 | 2:47 pm
    Mayor Eric Garcetti is determined not to let another Ferguson happen under his watch. He announced on Tuesday that the city is buying 7,000 body cameras for the LAPD. Such cameras, typically affixed to the chest, lapel, or near the ear, record audio and video of police/suspect interactions and have been shown to dramatically reduce use-of-force incidents and brutality complaints. “The trust between a community and its police department can be eroded in a single moment,” Garcetti told the Los Angeles Times. “Trust is built on transparency.” Funding for much of the…

    With all the recent accolades and award nominations for Alejandro González Iñárritu’s Birdman, it ought to be pointed out—even if it’s unlikely to be observed when the awards are bestowed—that the film’s full title is Birdman or (The Unexpected Virtue of Ignorance). The peculiar subtitle confers a certain gravitas, instantly transforming a title that could belong to a superhero flick into something more cerebral. It prompts the vigilant viewer to keep an ear out for clues that explain the enigmatic phrase or even the phrase’s appearance. Before you disregard the second half of…

    La Jewish LawyerThe Senate Intelligence committee released its highly anticipated report about the Bush Administration’s “Enhanced Interrogation Techniques” today.  The report was five years in the making and made a lot of claims, such as claiming that the techniques did constitute torture.  In addition, the report delineated a number of facts, like several purported foiled attacks were false, but the one thing that struck me most was the use of private contractors, psychologists who helped design and promote the program. The Senate Intelligence report clarified the role of a pair of…

Drivers that are intoxicated at the holidays pose increasing numbers risk to all motorists. California Vehicle code Section 23152(a)(b) is the basis for prosecution of  drunk drivers. These two sub sections deal with operating a vehicle under the influence of drugs and/or alcohol and for operating a vehicle with a blood alcohol reading of .08 or higher.

    LAJewishLawyer
    11 Sep 2014 | 12:48 pm
    La Jewish LawyerDiscovery, as the word implies, is a process of finding out things. In litigation, prior to trial, both sides engage in the “discovery process”. The rationale of having discovery is to allow both sides to ascertain the strengths and weaknesses of both their case and the other side(s) case. This will aid the parties in resolving their cases short of trial, if at all possible. With the current budget crisis in Los Angeles County, 56 courtrooms have been closed. The remaining courtrooms are dong a valiant job of continuing to get cases out to trial. However, delays are…
