I enjoyed two worthy productions on the weekend

I enjoyed two worthy productions on the weekend

Very different in content, but both featured three ladies…. (sort of … more about that later.) Aftershocks A heartwarmingly funny, “slice of life” story of three women’s lives, and the complex ways they connect … this is a poignantly passionate play. Written beautifully by Doug Haverty, whose award winning plays and musicals have delighted audiences, […]

“You Can Always Come Home…” in Finding the Burnett Heart

“You Can Always Come Home…” in Finding the Burnett Heart

By Charles Kenneth The first thing you notice is the insular room that creates the setting, along with a cross on the wall, conveying the play’s religious overtones. But the pictures on the wall reveal there’s a budding artistic genius who lives here. Entering the scene is Grandpa (James Handy), boisterous, red faced, and opinionated […]

Come Celebrate Grand Opening of Modern Furnishings

The NoHo Arts District is definitely undergoing urban gentrification, culturally, artistically, and physically, with massive urban renovation and restoration.

Dan Debevoise of NoHo Gallery LA was one of the enthusiastic attendees and exhibitors, partaking in the […]

Battleship

Battleship

Battleship Runtime 125 minutes OK for children. Now this is a movie! After suffering through The Avengers, I had despaired the future of the aliens-invade-earth genre. It seemed as if story and character development had been sacrificed for special effects. Not so here. Based on Hasbro’s board game of the same name, from a very […]

Mercedes-Benz Made History Here

Mercedes-Benz Made History Here

It’s fairly easy to tell that the 2012 Mercedes-Benz M-Class SUV is all new, with a slightly more chiseled design. This third-generation example continues on as the company’s “mainstream” luxury crossover vehicle, sandwiched nicely between the bigger GL and the smaller GLK. Looking back about fifteen years, the original ML model was a significant vehicle […]

Kerry Wood’s fifth major league start was one for the record book

He tied Roger Clemens’ nine-inning mark by striking out 20 batters on May 6, 1998 for the Chicago Cubs against Houston. With that accomplishment, Wood earned the nickname “Kid K” and was off to a roaring start to his big league career. “After the first inning I knew I had three, but I lost track […]

C-Belt

Long before Carlos Beltran set the baseball world on its proverbial ear during the 2004 postseason, the switch-hitter was regarded as one of the best all-around players. But what Beltran did in a dozen games for the Houston Astros in the National League Division Series and NL Championship Series, caught the eye of everyone, including […]
