  • Music: If You’re Not Listening to Demi Lovato, You’re Doing it Wrong

    Marielle Wakim
    1 Oct 2014 | 3:39 pm
    Up until recently—last Saturday, to be exact—I have always pictured Demi Lovato to be a carbon copy of Rosalinda Montoya, the sweet-natured and charmingly naïve character she played in the Disney film Princess Protection Program (which I have absolutely watched). I definitely have not pictured her wearing a black leather bustier festooned with metal spikes or yelling things like, “TRAVIS MOTHER FUCKIN’ BARKER!” at a crowd of 18,000 screaming fans, the majority of whom are girls under the age of 15.

    Mari Vanna, which is simultaneously West Hollywood’s wackiest and most authentic Russian restaurant (you know, the one with a live accordion player on staff and walls covered in ornate birdhouses) just got a little crazier: Starting next Wednesday, October 8 at 6 p.m., you’ll be able to gorge on unlimited caviar—as if you were some sort of 19th-century Russian czar drowning in rubles—for the peasant-appropriate price of $34 per person. Now, before you totally freak out you should realize that this is not the ultra-rare black sturgeon roe that goes for thousands of dollars per…

    The official opening of the Social Season always commences with the Opening of the L.A. Opera, and this year it was a return to the Gaiety, Glory, & Grandeur of the 1920’s.  Marta Domingo took us back to the world of the Flappers in directing and designing the season-opening of Verdi’s La Traviata. Of course, her husband, Placido Domingo, the world’s most revered Tenor (and now also Baritone) starred in the lavish production, along with gorgeous Russian Soprano Nino Machaidze as Violetta, and Mexican Tenor Arturo Chacon-Cruz as her lover, Alfredo.  A magical cast for a magical…

    “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.
  • Kingdom City – La Jolla Playhouse

    19 Sep 2014 | 1:28 pm
    It has been a while since I have seen a play in which each of the six characters are so sharply drawn. In fact, each character evolves throughout the arc of the play in believable and honest fashion. With a theme that is contentious, it is remarkable that hardly a false note is struck during this production. Kingdom City is the titular city in Missouri in which a theatrical director from NYC tries to mount a high school production of The Crucible. Miriam, well played by ­Kate Blumberg, evolves from one who talks a good game but too often fails to take the final leap of conviction. Her…

    Even though the temperatures don’t show any sign of abating, summer is winding down.  And that means the string of great shows at the Hollywood Bowl is nearing an end for this season. But there is one great bill this Sunday that is suitably eclectic and promises to be very satisfying. Andrew Bird has released eleven albums since his 1997 debut. His expertise on stringed instruments caught the eye of various film and TV producers, for whom he has provided some evocative scores. His 2012 release was a companion set of albums, and we should expect much on Sunday from Hands of Glory – the…

    How did it we forget all about those catches, those hits, those memorable highlight moments? Since 1999 in someone’s outfield has stood Torii Hunter with a glove made of pure gold in his hand. Inside this glove has been a magnet that is the polar of a baseball. He’s made dazzling catches–his most famous at the 2002 All-Star Game when he robbed Barry Bonds of a home run. Along with robbing them, he’s hit home runs consistently too, now approaching 350 for his career. Five All-Star appearances with three teams and nine consecutive Gold Glove Awards are two main attractions on…

    The First day of fall is upon us. Football is in full swing, and October baseball is just around the corner. Easily, this is the best time of the year. As we inch closer to the World Series all of the players are starting to become clear. In the American League the Angels and Orioles have their respective divisions locked up. In the AL Central, the Tigers have a 1.0 game lead over the Royals, but both will likely be playing a 163rd game this season, as should the Oakland A’s. The Mariners are still hanging around and so are the Indians, but as constituted, both could be eliminated in short…

If you're shopping for homes at Diamond Head, the starting prices are around $2 million and that will buy a fixer upper.

    We all look forward to and want to see progress in our respective markets, and I like what I’m seeing for Cincinnati real estate equity gains lately. Buyers and future sellers are both concerned about appreciation, understandable. When one buys a home, one hopes that their house value will grow, a major asset and investment, many count on equity growth to tap at some future date. I remember it was darn near horrific when I first came to Ohio back in early 2009. Some Realtors I met early on were rolling pennies to float the boat, and though many Ohio Realtors had exited the industry, those…

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…

  • Music: If You’re Not Listening to Demi Lovato, You’re Doing it Wrong

    Marielle Wakim
    1 Oct 2014 | 3:39 pm
    Up until recently—last Saturday, to be exact—I have always pictured Demi Lovato to be a carbon copy of Rosalinda Montoya, the sweet-natured and charmingly naïve character she played in the Disney film Princess Protection Program (which I have absolutely watched). I definitely have not pictured her wearing a black leather bustier festooned with metal spikes or yelling things like, “TRAVIS MOTHER FUCKIN’ BARKER!” at a crowd of 18,000 screaming fans, the majority of whom are girls under the age of 15. But that’s exactly what she wore and said during her concert at the Staples…

At once a delightful memory of Hollywood in its golden age and also a totally cockeyed geographical rendering of greater Los Angeles, this map (click here to see it larger) charms and befuddles in equal parts. (But hey, who could possibly be concerned with the actual landscape with all of those famous smiling faces ringing the city?) The creator of this map, Don Boggs,…

    Mari Vanna, which is simultaneously West Hollywood’s wackiest and most authentic Russian restaurant (you know, the one with a live accordion player on staff and walls covered in ornate birdhouses) just got a little crazier: Starting next Wednesday, October 8 at 6 p.m., you’ll be able to gorge on unlimited caviar—as if you were some sort of 19th-century Russian czar drowning in rubles—for the peasant-appropriate price of $34 per person. Now, before you totally freak out you should realize that this is not the ultra-rare black sturgeon roe that goes for thousands of dollars per…

    "Vaccines: Calling the Shots" will air on PBS Sept. 10 (9 p.m. ET/8 CT).When CC was in her second year of preschool, we got a letter home saying that a child in her school (which was preschool-8th grade) had been sent home with whooping cough.Whooping cough. It was scary.I immediately went home, looked up symptoms for the ailment and held my breath that CC wouldn't catch it, too. She had been vaccinated against it, but she was only 4 years old -- still so young.What was also troubling for me was the fact that whooping cough was making something of a comeback after being basically eradicated a…

    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…
