“Ok. So I’m on my way to The Goddess Lounge, the coffee house/knitting salon/menstrual palace that Fox News calls, ‘A man-hating elevator to hell, another example of debauched LA, a sinful hideaway for modern-day polytheists and the Hollywood types who forever confuse spiritual wholeness with liberal narcissism.’ Yeah. It’s not a good morning.” Thus begins […]

The Most Mysterious Cabinet in the World!

The Most Mysterious Cabinet in the World!

Hey, does that thing belong to Dr. Caligari? I’m betting there are wizard hats, magic wands and a few books by Linda Goodman stored in there. What do you guys think? Read the Full Story at Glimpses of South Pasadena

All the World’s a Stage…

All the World’s a Stage…

Ever feel daunted by the sheer heft of a book of Shakespeare? Never fear, fine people, the wacky comic masters at Metamorphosis Theatre Company have streamlined the canon. Opening tomorrow night, July 21, at Fremont Centre Theatre, The Complete Works of Shakespeare (Abridged) offers a madcap, family-friendly rendition of the bard’s tragedies, histories, comedies, sonnets […]

The Parrot Whisperer

The Parrot Whisperer

Last year I had the great fortune of meeting and chatting with Mark Bittner. (Read my interview with him here.) You may remember him as the subject of the award winning 2005 documentary The Wild Parrots of Telegraph Hill. I’ve often wondered if South Pasadena had its very own parrot whisperer. You know, a special […]

Now That’s a Big Balloon

Now That’s a Big Balloon

Is this the coolest balloon you’ve ever seen in your entire life? Just when I thought I’d seen everything I could see at a kids’ balloon show, the South Pasadena Public Library brought Buster Balloon to perform his awesome act as part of the summer Wonderful Wednesdays series, a segment of Dream Big, Read! Summer […]

A Blur of Little Ballet Dancers

A Blur of Little Ballet Dancers

I’m convinced if Degas had been able to get access to an iPhone, he would have had as much fun snapping away at his dancers as I had snapping away at these… Photo shot with iPhone, processed with Photoshop for iPhone and the MoreLomo app. Read the Full Story at Glimpses of South Pasadena

Groovy Food

Groovy Food

What do we need after a week of noir shadows? Some technicolor fruit! Summer is busting out all over Southern California. Here is just one of many recent Allee family fruit salads incorporating organic goodness from nearby growers. Pluots, nectarines, peaches, watermelon, apples, honeydew … even those grapes are from a local farm!) We stock […]

Noir Week (#7)

Noir Week (#7)

What? You think I’d do an entire noir series and not pretend, just once, that I’m Barbara Stanwyck or Veronica Lake? Ha! Give me a blast of afternoon sunlight and a camera self timer and suddenly I imagine detectives and danger and deep mysteries. Where’s my scotch, damn it? And now, I leave behind Noir […]

Noir Week (#6)

Noir Week (#6)

One of my favorite film professors in college taught that the simplest settings offer the most subtext. It’s all in how you reveal (or don’t reveal) the scene. I’m getting mighty pretentious with Noir Week here at Glimpses, but it’s all in good fun. Just a few more days of my darkness and light. Read […]

Noir Week (#5)

Noir Week (#5)

The reason I love dark shadows and bright light is not for what we can see there, but for what we imagine is there that we can’t see. Join me for a few more days of Noir Week where I turn South Pas into my own mysterious playground… Read the Full Story at Glimpses of […]
