We consider ourselves pro-life because we believe in helping women live a quality life with access to affordable healthcare and the right to make their own decisions in all circumstances—especially when it’s a decision regarding their own bodies (and whatever’s going on inside it). We remember when we were a poor student attending UCSB and […]

Real Women Have Curves

Real Women Have Curves

My primary reason for recommending the Pasadena Playhouse’s newest production, Josefina López’s Real Women Have Curves, is Blanca Araceli. Playing Carmen, mami of the well-read, restless, feminist, ambitious Ana and the creative, stressed, worried, and relentless Estrela, Araceli inhabits her character completely. She doesn’t need half of the first act to breathe and get into […]

Roving Doc Film Fest

Roving Doc Film Fest

What does the Occupy movement in New York have in common with the Spanish Indignados protests or the Arab Spring? Is there a connection between the struggle of the Iranian democracy movement and the nonviolent uprising in Syria and what is the link between the Ukrainian topless activists of Femen and an Islamic culture like Egypt? And […]

Ink & Clay

On the Beach: So Long Summer

On the Beach: So Long Summer

Even though more and more children return to school in mid-August (a miserable decision), Labor Day is still the official indicator that summer is at an end. To acknowledge our gratefulness for living in Southern California—and despite the recent vicious heat wave, which sparks wistful visions of the sunny, 45º September temps in Nuuk, Greenland—we […]

While the Sun Is Low and Golden

While the Sun Is Low and Golden

While the Sun Is Low and Golden by Tim Callahan   While the sun is yet low and golden in the western sky let us call to mind those we have lost to the ever onrushing pall of darkness. We hope they have gone into mystery, not oblivion. Some tell us they’ve risen to glory […]

Chicken Paprikash

Chicken Paprikash

I first had Chicken Paprikash when a chef I was working for made it for the kitchen’s family meal. It was such an easy process and it becomes this really feel-good meal. I tend to forget about how simple and delicious this recipe is—this is my first time making it in over two years—but once […]

9th Annual Chocolate Salon

9th Annual Chocolate Salon

We believe Pasadena “does” chocolate pretty dang well. Mignon, Amara, Contessa, and Marco Paolo  (MP’s hand-painted chocolates pictured right). Now, take these four quality chocolate makers and square them to the nth degree, and welcome to The 9th Annual Los Angeles Chocolate Salon. This is not just a show, a taste-testing, or an exhibit. A […]
