Enjoyment: M.I.A. at Mia

By quinne anderson, published on Oct 23, 2006

...Accepts major credit cards. If you're getting your mani/pedi done and you want to read the full catty review, plod on. When I first drove by Mia on Eagle Rock Boulevard, I was -- as our surfing friends would say -- stoked to see a new sushi joint in the works. Eagle Rock is Los Angeles' latest up-and-coming neighborhood, its turf yet untainted by an overabundance of commercial shenanigans. Its residents still enjoy a semblance of peace and quiet in the vicious sprawl that is Los Angeles. But don't be fooled; the people who reside in this east-side haven still have... (more)

"Night Moves" -- Lisa Papi-NO!

By quinne anderson, published on Oct 21, 2006

I looked at the CD cover artwork for Lisa Papineau's Night Moves with hope--it was comfortable, simple and inviting. It made me want to smoke some pot, take my shoes off and make snow-less snow angels in the green grass of my Los Angeles front yard. I put the disc in my CD player and sat down excitedly on my floor to do some painting. I was secretly hoping the album would bear parallels to Air's Talkie Walkie, an album to which Lisa Papineau lent her vocals. Talkie Walkie is deliciously different from Air's earlier music. Like the course of Radiohead's musical journey, it shows progression... (more)

Don't Forget the Derby!

By Alethea, published on Oct 19, 2006

...and Fridays are "Can of Jam" days which play live music. This Sunday is "swing Sunday" in which you can get a quick lesson before you cut a rug on the dance floor. You can still catch Go Betty Go this coming Tuesday if you're down to see an upbeat group of girls rocking out. Aside from all the official club activities, you can even book your own private party. Although its popularity may have waned from the earlier days, I would bet that the Derby is one of Los Angeles's most chic low-keyed secrets. It's definately worth a look. You can check out the website at clubderby.com.

Skid Rowe

By Spirit Knecht, published on Oct 18, 2006

Ya know if the homeless problem in downtown los angeles could just send a post card to Oprah...maybe she would help buy them a loft or for that matter a whole building. And then I wouldn't see people daily for a whopping dollar and a shiney nickel getting completely gacked outta thier minds lost to the gates of...now this raises and interesting question? The gates of Hell, is there really such a place? Some argue, we're living it. Me, well, I think there is a place that life is very peacefull...I use terms like "outta" because I think the soul, the voice we speak through here on earth, escapes... (more)

Menu of Singledum

By Lara E. Seltzer, published on Oct 17, 2006

...This way, it looks like I’m the busiest person on the planet – hardly having time to stuff my face, let alone meet with a companion. So the answer should be to find my soul mate, right? One problem: meeting men that are “dateable” is a huge challenge, especially in Los Angeles. The odds automatically tip out of my favor since I’m not six feet tall and weigh over 100 pounds, looking nothing like a movie star. Heck, I’m no Jennifer Aniston. When you’re looking within a male population trying to chase models, what’s left are slim pickings. ... (more)

Hooray for Hockey Fans!

By Stephanie Michele, published on Oct 13, 2006

Last night I attended a LA Kings vs. Dallas Stars hockey game. Although I am no stranger to hockey, this was my first time attending an LA King's game in their home arena. I was really looking forward to the game. I moved to Los Angeles after living in Dallas for ten years. I went to all of the playoff games when the Stars won the Stanley cup and considered myself a Star's fan.

I have always loved hockey however, I have to admit my interested faded a bit during the NHL strike. Going into the game, I was not sure who I was going to cheer for - my new home team or my old favorite. I honestly... (more)

Death Of A Dodgers Dynasty

By dodgerjon, published on Oct 11, 2006

...rule against its owners having a stake in any other profesional league. They made an exception for Peter O'Malley. The NFL rightly considered him a "catch"-- and recognized him as a way to add polish to their image. For a brief while, it seemed that pro football was headed back to Los Angeles. Then Mark Ridley Thomas and politics entered the picture. LA City Councilman Thomas ruled over the area that encompassed the LA Coliseum-- former home of The Rams, Raiders and the 1932 & 1984 Olympics. The grand old stadium was in decline... and sat empty most of the year. When he... (more)
