Your City at Work

Your City at Work

Last Wednesday I began taping a new edition of “Your City at Work,” a series on KPAS that has me following a city employee out of the office and into the field. Past editions have featured a public health nurse, motorcycle cop, code compliance officer, arborist and other employees who don’t spend all their time […]

Horse latitudes

Horse latitudes

When my daughter and I went Jeeping very early last Sunday morning in the Palo Duro Canyon outside of Amarillo, Texas, this horse came over to greet us. We had neither apple nor carrot so we weren’t very interesting. But it became all too interesting once we stopped to pat its nose seeing as it […]

Charlie Hope at Levitt

Charlie Hope at Levitt

Week six of Children’s Night at Levitt Pavilion’s free summer concert series brings us Charlie Hope, a singer-songwriter with a background in art therapy. She’s won Independent Music Awards for Best Children’s Song and Best Children’s Album, for “Frog Song” on her album I’m Me!, respectively. Also, she’s Canadian, which means she’s automatically nominated for […]

Ancient Future Benefit Concert

Ancient Future Benefit Concert

The Ancient Future Quintet, one of the band’s many configurations. Ancient Future is a band, I think. They’ve been playing world fusion music, a term bandleader Matthew Montfort claims he coined, since 1978. Their upcoming date at the incredibly atmospheric Folly Bowl (an amphitheater in the yard of a private Altadena home) is but one […]

The Laramie Project

The Laramie Project

The Milestone Theatre Company is nearing its third birthday. Founded in the fall of 2007 by restless PCC theater students, The Milestone has grown into a community of dozens of local artists. Their latest production is The Laramie Project, by Moisés Kaufman and members of the Tectonic Theater Project. It is the true story of […]

Ryan Bingham at the Levitt

Ryan Bingham at the Levitt

Hyperbole: When Jeff Bridges won an Oscar for his portrayal of Bad Blake in Crazy Heart, it was on Ryan Bingham’s coattails. Not hyperbole: Ryan Bingham is a great alt-country singer-songwriter, who won an Oscar and a Golden Globe for his tune “The Weary Kind,” which Jeff Bridges performs in the movie—with Bingham and his […]

Speaking of Birthdays: Glimpses of South Pasadena is 2!

Speaking of Birthdays: Glimpses of South Pasadena is 2!

How did I miss it? On July 13, GOSP quietly and uneventfully turned two years old. I’m not sure how it’s possible that I have posted 743 photographs of our fair city. (Well, I suppose you can’t count this one. Or this one either. But what the heck, that’s still 741!) A big thanks to […]

Zen Monday: #105

Zen Monday: #105

You won’t be surprised to know it’s Zen Monday. Today’s the day you experience the photo and give us your thoughts rather than me telling you what I think the photo’s about. There’s no competition, no right or wrong. We’re here to have fun. I look for a photo worth contemplating or, failing that, something […]

Back up again …

Back up again …

Our Uverse problem was finally fixed yesterday (Uverse customers: there's an electronic filter that goes bad after a couple of years, just to warn you), and we'll have updates up through the morning — lots of stuff: burglary arrests, foam in Millard Creek, concert photos — we can't AFFORD to take time off! Read the […]
