I'm curious to see how this all looks in 3D, and I'm curious to know what a paying audience will think. But for now, at least, the dark rumors that World War Z would be dead-on-arrival appear to have been greatly exaggerated.
No conversation, no matter how meaningful and powerful, can bring back the millions we've already lost to suicide. The loved ones of these victims also have a thirst for conversation and our efforts to engage with them may very well prevent the next loss to suicide if we can all continue to break the silence and share our journeys.
Los Angeles may be sunny and star-studded year-round, but summer is the prime time to grab a seat and some grub outdoors in La La Land.
Where Garcetti goes from here is momentarily upward -- television interviews, magazine covers -- before his handlers guide his approach back to the mundane mess at City Hall. How will he try to reconcile with labor leaders used to having their way?
Mr. Karber clearly has good intentions with his #FitchTheHomeless campaign. He is arguing that defining beauty and coolness in such a narrow way is exclusionary and insulting to people who think differently.
How does it feel if you beat someone who doesn't know you had the help of a computer to find your words -- words you don't even know the meaning of? How does that possibly feel good? Do you high-five yourself in the mirror after? Just you and your nasty little secret?
If journalism's role is to not only report the facts but also to expose wrongdoing, then the Times deserves kudos, and a Pulitzer Prize, for documenting and explaining the emergence of Bangladesh's new sweatshop economy as a major source of the clothing that American and European consumers buy every day.
Kanye West is white America's worst nightmare. Because as much as one may attempt to dismiss him, you still have to turn on your regularly scheduled late night comedy program and stare him in the face. You can't avoid Kanye. He's made very sure of that.
Over the weekend, I was invited to a screening up a new, 11-part webseries, Dude, Where's My Chutzpah?, a one-woman circus (with a lot of help from her friends) by Jessie Kahnweiler, who wrote, directed, produced and stars in the series as... Jessie Kahnweiler.
Outdoor recreation employs 6.1 million Americans, and the sector is growing about 5 percent annually. Conservation and access for recreation, including climbing, biking, hiking, and fishing make this economic impact possible.
I walking more freely and faster without assistance. I can sit longer than five minutes without pain. I'm getting pretty close to feeling like the old Bill Rosendahl.
The distinguished Antaeus Company, L.A.'s classic theater ensemble of extraordinarily talented actors, presents Arthur Miller's tale of the Salem witch trials, his parable of mass hysteria and the dangers of theocracy, or any blind ideology, for that matter.
I am a rare breed. I am a Los Angeles born and raised denizen who hates working out. Yup, I said it. I hate it.
California is recognized nationally and internationally as a leader in environmental causes, but our legislators have been far too entangled with the petrochemical lobby to get the job done on banning plastic bags statewide.
Two-thirds of our most hated celebrities are women, and females count for seven of the top 10 slots. What makes Gwyneth Paltrow 20 times more hateable than Chris Brown?
The Getty exhibition hopes to make us really see Los Angeles. Co-curator Rani Singh says, "these buildings become intimate in a way, and hopefully with our exhibition, one comes out with a different understanding and an appreciation for the city that we live in and the level of beauty here."
It's Heather's first day on set of "Hot in Cleveland." She interviews that family is her number one priority, but this year she's been trying to work on her creative side while "servicing my family."
The "crazy" Zelda that has emerged in our popular imagination is as much Scott's making as The Great Gatsby itself. This is, in and of itself, part of the F. Scott legacy. His work depended on Zelda's silence.
Where will Obama be if his administration's conventional methods are not up to the task of cutting through controversies that are engendered, at least in part, by reliance on conventional methods? That's when things could get very interesting.
