Requiem For A Dream: The Decline Of American Values

By john robertson, published on Jan 18, 2009

...of this hoity toityverbiage apply to today's voter in plain, simple English?

Well, let's turn the tables and pretend the gun hating liberals got together to change the constitution against the minority of conservatives in the state. I can most likely stand on corners in San Francisco, Hollywood, Santa Cruz and Berkeley and get enough signatures in just one week to put a proposition on the ballot barring all citizens inCalifornia from owning firearms. However, even if it successfully passed, (which it probably would) the courts would be forced to overturn it because it is... (more)

Ordinary People Extraordinary Heroes - Thanks Cnn

By wolviela, published on Nov 23, 2008

Standing on Hollywood Blvd, dressed up in a cocktail dress axiously awaiting what was in store across the street at the Kodak Theatre, one had to think, what am I doing here.

Along with a group of girls, some who came together, and a few like me who came by themselves, we were there for a main purpose. Of course other than trying to earn money for the holiday. Just kidding folks! Seat Fillers... a person who fills in the empty seats so that the audience at home does not see empty seats. Of course it didn't hurt we were seeing Anderson Cooper, whom I think is handsome in a distinugished... (more)

The Bible Is Not A Smorgasbord

By D. E. Carson, published on Nov 6, 2008

...meant to scare you.  I’m simply reporting.  You are free to do with it as you choose.

But getting back to the issue of Proposition 8, I was watching the late LA news last night and saw the Prop 8 protesters meandering around WeHo between Santa Monica/San Vicente Boulevards and the Hollywood and Highland district.  I saw signs accusing supporters of Proposition 8 of hatred and discrimination.  As I wrote in my previous article, Proposition 8 was about the rights of the people versus ideological judges legislating from the bench.  But the opponents of Proposition 8 are too... (more)

Jay Gordon: You Have To Be Unique

By Gary Schwind, published on Oct 30, 2008

...the science of man’s quest for eternal peace. I’ve been playing music for so long. I’ve done other things, and I’ve never gotten any satisfaction from any job other than playing music. I got involved in lighting motion pictures for a while when I first came to Hollywood. That was probably the coolest job I ever had. The majority of my life, I’ve focused as a songwriter, and a singer, and a musician. That was always my job, something I wanted to do. Something I was driven to do. That’s destiny and fate. The lighting gig with Olson Stage Lighting... (more)

Frankly Speaking With A Baseball Legend

By Ed Attanasio, published on Oct 29, 2008

A left-handed hitter who threw right-handed, Herman Franks broke into baseball with the Hollywood Stars of the Pacific Coast League in 1932, but he was soon acquired by the St. Louis Cardinals and joined their large farm system. All you really need to know about his playing career was that he played primarily as a backup and finished with a batting average of .199 with three home runs in 188 games over parts of six seasons. In 1949 Franks landed his first coaching assignment, as an aide to Leo Durocher with the New York Giants. He was a member of two National League championship clubs (1951,... (more)

10 Days Of Horror (day Four)

By Dude Poole, published on Oct 27, 2008

...giving too much away for the sake of those that have not seen the movie, I will not go too deeply into the spoiling of the plot. I will just highly recommend this movie to all that would like to see a musical horror movie (not that it isn't a bit of a contradiction from the realm of Hollywood) over this spooky holiday season. Just know that you are going to get the Burton and Depp that you have come to expect, and while some of the original material from the musical is cut (I assume for the sake of time, since the movie comes in just over 2 hours long), be sure that this version... (more)

Snow On The Grass (part 1)

By 'Mean' Mike Duffau, published on Oct 15, 2008

...I didn't waste time and hopped on it and did my research to ask the right questions. I didn't want to sound like a typical so called interview where it sounds like couple of robots talking without a soul.

Let's face it... We've seen the movie, but how much of it is true? Visually, Hollywood likes to make things look good and tweak the truth a little bit. I, on the other hand befriended the source of the trip that you're about to take. He writes me back segments at a time and basically has condensed my questions into a detailed story as if it's a staged reading of Jack Kerouac's... (more)
