Life drawing at the Armory

Life drawing at the Armory

At the Armory Center for the Arts’ biannual Off the Wall auction and party Saturday night, I am told that there was also a male model sans culottes upstairs. Couldn’t say. Didn’t make it upstairs myself. I hadn’t even noticed that the downstairs model was nude until she stood up to slip her clothes on [...]

Tigers, moms: But not Tiger Moms

Sandra Tsing Loh, left, and Wendy Mogel, right, at the Tiger Mother Emergency Response S’lon in Pasadena on Sunday chez Sandra. Wendy’s new book is “Blessing of a B-Minus,” and ain’t it the case — sometimes a B- is just fine. Not getting-into-Princeton fine, but … well, my theory was always that the A- was [...]

The fish at Union Station

Grandin, who became nationally famous when profiled a decade ago in The New Yorker as the creator of humane cattle-processing techniques, is autistic herself.

Planning in Pasadena

Here’s a link to a reproduction of the resignation letter from his former post with the city of Los Angeles by Vince Bertoni, the newly named planning director of Pasadena — courtesy Curbed LA.

A brief history of Hawking

A brief history of Hawking

Stephen Hawking, the great English physicist who tries to spend a month every winter at Caltech, did a star turn at Beckman Tuesday night. And what a turn. What a testament to perserverance: can’t move, can’t talk, don’t whine: stay brilliant, and change the way we think about the universe. His packed lecture and PowerPoint [...]
