  • Don’t Sleep: An All-Nighter on Elm Street (Pts. 1-7)

    David Cotner
    24 Oct 2014 | 4:00 am
    @ Cinefamily/Silent Movie Theatre by David Cotner While the Nightmare on Elm Street series went from “One, two, Freddy’s coming for you” to “Nine, 10, Robert Englund’s at a convention again,” it started out as a frightening look at small-town America, a place that was, in its way, just as ruined as the face of its serial-killer villain, Freddy Krueger. Wes Craven’s visionary work of horror struck directly at one of the most potent aspects of the human experience — dreaming — and transmogrified it into deeply personal violence, which, when paired with sick humor, took up a…

The main appeal of We Can Survive — an annual benefit for the Young Survival Coalition and Living Beyond Breast Cancer — is that it brings together a bunch of pop’s biggest names, including several who could fill the Bowl on their own.… [ Read more ] [ Subscribe to the comments on this story ]

      We’re accustomed to visual correlations between the curves of an automobile to those of the female body, but what about depictions of a woman’s own relationship to a car? You know, like actually driving one? Advertisements and stock photography–the latter of which is produced by companies like Shutterstock and sold to publications (like this one) as alternatives to original photography–would have us believe that when women drive cars, they do so in bright, cheerful attire, large smiles stretched across their faces, and of course, arms up!

There are so many ways to celebrate, from watching dancing mummies and vampires at the Bob Baker Marionette Theater to enjoying a freshly made sugar skull at El Mercado in Boyle Heights. For years, friends asked me to show them a good time on Halloween, so I began a new tradition, chartered a bus, and headed out in search of the spooky.

    22 Sep 2014 | 2:12 pm
    “Gotham” courtesy of Fox The much anticipated Fox TV series Gotham starts with a dark night in a big city. But there’s no sign of Batman anywhere. Although Batman in DC Comics and “The Dark Knight” movie franchise inspired this prequel story, Gotham is about the early days of Commissioner Gordon, when he was just a cop on the beat in a dangerously corrupt city. In the first episode of the epic new series, a child watches his parents gunned down in an alley, and Detective Gordon (Ben McKenzie) makes a vow to find the killers who made the little boy, Bruce Wayne, an orphan.

Now the second round is over as the Division Series are done and only four teams remain in the hunt. Heading into the division series there was still a lot unknown about every team in the postseason. There was a lot of talk about who could make it and what they would do but in reality nobody ever knows. The bright lights of the postseason can send teams and players into a cave where they are rarely ever seen.

While that sounds logical at first, nothing could be further from what you need to do if you want to turn technology from an expense to an investment. From our viewpoint, your technology should be providing you a return of at least 1000%, or a 1 to 10 multiple, if you are using it correctly.

    It is not something that we think about every day, but the fact is that carpenters are divided into several groups, based on their specialty and different fine skills. If we stop for a while and think about that profession, it is not strange that people working with wood need time to master all the craft skills and become all-round carpenters. Wood is one of the noblest materials in the world, but it also demands years of practice and improvement to become a fully skillful wood professional. This is definitely one of the most complex jobs in the field of crafts, since it requires physical…

Of course, do not try to pull in people who will not be interested in a spot or what your property offers because you will only drive away tenants. It goes without saying that you should make sure that your property is up to code and that you offer the best you can, otherwise your property will be vacant for a very long time.

  • Better than Gettypede…Running of the Clowns on 10/26

    6 Oct 2014 | 4:52 pm
    Sunday I met with the agents at GuerilLA Improv for what has the makings of an epic mission.  Its “La Carrera de los Payasos”, literally “Running of the Clowns” a parody of the annual Running of the Bulls in Spain. Cool. The mission dossier isn’t out yet. They do have a basic FB Page up now. I did walk the route and can tell you it took us less than 30 minutes with a lot of stops to discuss what would happen at each juncture. It will be short stints of running…something even my feeble old knees can handle. There is a dress code. If you are a…

    Pizza Rev is coming to K-town and its grand opening all proceeds go to helping the Los Angeles Animal Shelter, North Central Animal Shelter.  The LA Animal Shelter serves local homeless and abandoned pets.  The pizza deal is pretty sweet, you get a personal sized pizza and you pay what you want a the end for it (Suggested donation is $8).  I absolutely love a local business that branches out and gives back to the community with each new location. Adding to the fun is Social Media Sunday on October 12.  All you have to do is “like” or “follow” them on facebook,…

    27 Sep 2014 | 3:28 pm
    Last night was the opening of 4000 Miles a pulitzer nominated play at the Sierra Madre Playhouse.  The play was so well executed and performed you didn’t neet an intermission.  It ran a full Hour and Forty Five, but the time flew thanks the the simply amazing performances of Mimi Cozen as the grandmother Vera and Christian Prentice as the grandson Leo. I’ll try not to give too much of the story line away or drop a spoiler.  This is a drama with a lot of comedy included.  Leo is a young man on a literal and metaphoric journey.  Leo left Seattle on a bicycle with a friend who…

    Channing Sargent

      We’re accustomed to visual correlations between the curves of an automobile to those of the female body, but what about depictions of a woman’s own relationship to a car? You know, like actually driving one? Advertisements and stock photography–the latter of which is produced by companies like Shutterstock and sold to publications (like this one) as alternatives to original photography–would have us believe that when women drive cars, they do so in bright, cheerful attire, large smiles stretched across their faces, and of course, arms up!

    Halloween is the new Christmas. I have friends that work on costumes all summer, and the plastic pumpkins start appearing in stores as soon as the back to school sales are through. There are so many ways to celebrate, from watching dancing mummies and vampires at the Bob Baker Marionette Theater to enjoying a freshly made sugar skull at El Mercado in Boyle Heights. For years, friends asked me to show them a good time on Halloween, so I began a new tradition, chartered a bus, and headed out in search of the spooky.

    @ Cinefamily/Silent Movie Theatre by David Cotner While the Nightmare on Elm Street series went from “One, two, Freddy’s coming for you” to “Nine, 10, Robert Englund’s at a convention again,” it started out as a frightening look at small-town America, a place that was, in its way, just as ruined as the face of its serial-killer villain, Freddy Krueger. Wes Craven’s visionary work of horror struck directly at one of the most potent aspects of the human experience — dreaming — and transmogrified it into deeply personal violence, which, when paired with sick humor, took up a…

    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…

    La Jewish LawyerWhen you have a claim against either your insurance company, or file a claim against another insurance company, you will deal with an “adjuster”. The first question that most people ask is what is an adjuster? This is typically an employee of the insurance company whose job it is to investigate all aspects of the claim and attempt to resolve the claim as quickly as possible. The State of California through the Department of Insurance has standards called Fair Claims Practices Acts which mandates that insurance carriers promptly investigate claims.  Please call our…
