Dead body in Eaton Canyon; homicide detectives called in [UPDATED]

Dead body in Eaton Canyon; homicide detectives called in [UPDATED]

We’re listening to the scanner about 7 PM, and sheriff units are massing at the Pinecrest Gate — Altadena station tells us that a dead body has been found in the canyon, but no other details at this time. We’re continuing to monitor. MEANWHILE — another unconfirmed scanner call out on an attempted suicide at […]

Everybody Loves Rae Armantrout (Red Hen at Boston Court)

Everybody Loves Rae Armantrout (Red Hen at Boston Court)

Who is this Rae Troutfish person, you ask? Why, only the most recent winner of the Pulitzer Prize in Poetry, for her collection Versed, which, I assure you, is really, really good. She’ll be reading Monday the 7th at the very spiffy Boston Court, along with the multi-talented Charles Harper Webb, a fixture on the […]

ANW Does The Comedy of Errors

ANW Does The Comedy of Errors

I have given up trying to pun, in the titles of these posts, on A Noise Within, Southern California’s premier classical theater repertory company. Let’s just cut to the chase: they’re doing Shakespeare, which is about as classical as the repertory gets (except for those Greek dudes, though very few people perform those in the […]

The Eagle Rock Local Folk Fest

The Eagle Rock Local Folk Fest

Folk music is one of those things that’s changing all the time but never really changes, if you know what we mean (i.e. if you understand italics). Or maybe it’s one of those things that never seems to change but really changes all the time? Either way, it’s just as wonderful a thing now as […]

Justice Department and big tobacco spar over proposed “corrective statement” ads

Justice Department and big tobacco spar over proposed “corrective statement” ads

Imagine a pack of smokes at 7/11 featuring the cool Indian Chief smoking and a label that reads: "This is Philip Morris. Just a friendly heads up: we are liars. Smoking kills and the Indian Chief on this box probably already has lung cancer." The Justice Department says cigarette manufacturers should publish similar “corrective statements” […]

Zero-sum future: American power in the age of anxiety

Zero-sum future: American power in the age of anxiety

The Information Age has given way to an Age of Anxiety, as Gideon Rachman sees it. In his new book, <i>Zero-Sum Future</i>, the chief foreign affairs columnist for the Financial Times depicts a financially stable China manufacturing most of America’s products, a potentially unstable Middle East possessing most of the world’s oil, and America exercising […]

Siem Reap

Siem Reap

WHY A decades-old centerpiece of Long Beach’s Cambodia Town. WHAT A lot of heat courses through Siem Reap. Sometimes it’s a subtle, slow burn, other times it’s a fully loaded assault. Although the menu is large enough to accommodate a few Thai and Chinese offerings, the Cambodian classics are what keep this place relevant after […]
