UTLA doubles down on charter co-locations as LAUSD reopening, coronavirus budget deficits hang in balance

Lynda Davey, a 70-year-old teacher at Shirley Avenue Elementary School in Reseda, found herself getting shooed from outside A-list actress Kristen Bell’s house in Los Feliz by police on a hot Thursday, May 7, afternoon as she sat in her red Mazda. Davey was one of dozens of Los Angeles public school teachers union members demanding, via a honking car-caravan at Los Angeles Unified School District headquarters and at homes of charter school leaders, a moratorium on campus-sharing agreements betwe...

Another Tale of Finding Depth in a Locked Down Life

In my last post, I profiled a novelist who took advantage of the lockdown to slow down; giving herself more than enough time and space to inhabit her manuscript revisions. This shift allowed her to tap a “mysterious” source of creativity and finish her work ahead of schedule. In response, a reader sent me some notes on how he had similarly leveraged the disruption induced by the lockdown to experiment with a deeper, more deliberate lifestyle, despite the fact that he has a typical email-bound k...

The Earliest Known Motion Picture, 1888’s Roundhay Garden Scene, Restored with Artificial Intelligence

No image is more closely associated with the birth of the motion picture than a train pulling into the French coastal town of La Ciotat. Captured by cinema pioneers Auguste and Louis Lumière, the 50-second clip frightened the audience at its first screening in 1896, who thought a real locomotive was hurtling toward them — or so the legend goes. Those early viewers may simply have felt a technological astonishment we can no longer muster today, and certainly not in response to such a mund...

Watch Florian Schneider (RIP) in Classic Early Kraftwerk Performances

The seventies, am I right….? Not that I can claim to have experienced it firsthand. But if I could have been a witness to any period in pop history it would have been the decade in which experimental fusion movements invaded rock and roll. There was Miles Davis and his protegees, of course. But there was much more besides: The Wailers’ fusion of rock, reggae, and soul; Fela Kuti’s fusion of Ghanaian high life, James Brown funk, and Nigerian jazz; Ryuchi Sakamoto’s fusion of indigenous, c...

Patti Smith’s Self Portraits: Another Side of the Prolific Artist

Young artists can understandably feel hesitant about trying new things. It’s hard enough to compete as a musician, for example. Why try to publish poetry or make visual art, too? Older, more established artists who branch out often have trouble being taken seriously in other fields. Patti Smith—poet, singer, memoirist, photographer, visual artist—has never seemed to suffer in either regard. “Her artwork has been exhibited everywhere from New York to Munich,” notes Dangerous Minds, “and in 2008 ...
