The one Los Angeles location visitors never consider... is Los Angeles itself. There used to be no "there" there. But there is now. A newly hip downtown LA has been the best kept secret on the West Coast, until now.
I love taking classes. I love learning. Since graduating college, I've signed up for courses all over LA, from UCLA Extension's writing seminars (they're great!) to improv workshops at The Groundlings (good too!). And I won't even get into all the acting classes I have experienced.
I've collected their feedback to come up with a few key takeaways that I want to share with you --everything from tips for cultivating the best talent to understanding the relationship between the Latin American tech movement and the U.S.
Aloha, Kiana, co-written by 11-year old Nicki Klar, discussed marriage, the possibility of parents separating, how we connect to our romantic partners, and most importantly how to be honest with ourselves and others, all through the eyes of teens.
I'm not a fashion critic but certainly a more than casual consumer. I know what I like and I think I know what works and pushes boundaries. N.I.C.E. Collective is making great, well-constructed, minimalistic handsome gear that is modern and ready for the next frontier.
DTLA is set in downtown L.A. and chronicles the friendships and sex lives of eight friends and the people who populate their lives. This week I caught up with creator/director Larry Kennar, co-producer and actor Darryl Stephens, and cast members Danny Roberts and Matthew S. Herrick.
Kennar's newest project, DTLA, is out this spring, and as Kennar says, it's best described as "a cross between Queer As Folk and Swingers." He tells me it is the first gay drama to come out in seven years.
