Sounds frightfully fantastic, right? We just read on Amoeba’s blog about the festival and what to expect. Although we have a few horror festivals we will be attending, this one looks like something that has climbed to the top of our lists since it has birthed so many cool horror films.
As obnoxious as this sounds, I’ve heard from many sources that the Pasadena City College Flea Market is the new Rose Bowl Flea Market. I’ve tried to go for some time but have not had the chance because, well, I’m too lazy to wake up early on a Sunday to schlep out to Pasadena for some cool old stuff. You have to really mentally prepare yourself for that and, even if you do prepare yourself, you don’t always end up actually going. If I had a nickel for every time I intended to go to a flea market on a Sunday but did not, I would undoubtedly have thousands of dollars.
No stranger to drama, Scientology–Los Angeles’ religious poster child–is under attack again: the religion is the subject of Rolling Stone writer Janet Reitman’s new book, Inside Scientology. Reitman spent five years researching and studying the organization, which culminates in this book. Scientology, though, had to release a statement to clear the air which–duh–sounds like something a defensive robot vomited out.
We posted a story about UCR’s exhibit of The Great Picture some time ago, but we stumbled upon a video of the photo being prepped for exhibition via KPCC. The video gives a behind the scenes look at how the photo came to be, how it was made, and how they got it on display at UCR. Take a few minutes and watch the video!
We had no idea this was possible but West Hollywood is banning fur. In an ordinance passed earlier today, West Hollywood’s City Council approved to ban the sale of fur (for the time being).
First, is fur in West Hollywood a huge problem? Second, is West Hollywood aware that they are located in Southern California and that fur should not exist in this climate anyway unless it is on an animal? We’re confused just as much as you are, folks.
