Being Earnest As Only Wilde Can Be

Being Earnest As Only Wilde Can Be

“To be born, or at any rate bred, in a hand-bag, whether it had handles or not, seems to me to display a contempt for the ordinary decencies of family life that reminds one of the worst excesses of the French Revolution.” “You can hardly imagine that I and Lord Bracknell would dream of allowing [...]

20th Biannual Art on Palm

20th Biannual Art on Palm

Wild Wood Park is tucked away, a nook, a wondrous hideaway. Once you see the cars lining both sides of the street, you know you’re in the right place, but still have no idea where to go. Follow the people. Down a small track that winds back into “an ancient oak canyon.” Here local artists [...]

Wiggle Waggle 2014

Wiggle Waggle 2014

Every year, the Pasadena Humane Society’s Wiggle Waggle Walk unites families and dogs to raise funds in support of dogs that don’t have families. There will be a fashion show and a look-alike contest. I don’t much resemble Wilma except in lounging posture, and neither of us is ready to be in such a big crowd. [...]

Shakespeare in the PARK(let)

Shakespeare in the PARK(let)

The third Friday of September is coming quickly, which means it’s time to prepare for PARK(ing) Day 2014. This is the movement begun in 2005 when Matthew, John, and Blaine wanted to bring attention to the lack of urban parks and pubic space. They accomplished this by paying a parking meter on a street in San Francisco—for two hours. During [...]

Taking Flight

Taking Flight

  From playing in his school’s marching band and joining a techno-pop group to earning a Grammy in 2012, Eric Whitacre elicits high, and sometimes fan-girling, praise. On Forums.Bands.org, comments call him “the nicest man you will ever meet,” and say he’s “a wonderful composer” and his music is “nothing short of amazing.” And, oh yes… “that tush…to [...]

Tony Shalhoub & Brooke Adams in Happy Days

Tony Shalhoub & Brooke Adams in Happy Days

His head shrinks until he’s just two googly eyes in Men in Black. As Alexander Minion in Spy Kids, he was adorned with three extra heads. He played a chef and donned an Italian accent (despite being first generation American; his father emigrating from Lebanon) in Big Night. And, of course, he known for Monk, [...]

Make a Day of the Dead Altar @ Ave. 50 Studio

Make a Day of the Dead Altar @ Ave. 50 Studio

Candles are lit to welcome the spirit back. Marigolds or cempasúchitl symbolize death but their strong fragrance “also help lead the dead back.” Salt represents the continuance of life. Pan de muerto is a symbol of the departed. A glass of water is offered as souls are thirsty “after their long journey from the Other [...]
