Los Angeles County will receive about 73,000 fewer vaccine doses next week compared to this week, mostly due to a reduction in the supply of Johnson & Johnson vaccines, which the county’s chief science officer Paul Simon said Friday was the result of vaccine shortages nationally. “We are concerned about the allocation, particularly the shortage of Johnson & Johnson vaccine,” Simon said. “We felt the effects here clearly. We really live week to week with what we know about the allocations.” The s...

Fueled by surplus Johnson & Johnson vaccine, Cal State LA site has ‘immediate appointments’ available

With relatively few vaccine appointments slots being filled, state and federal officials are putting out the call to any eligible person to sign up for “immediate appointments” to get vaccinated against COVID-19 at the mammoth Cal State LA site.

The 69 Pages of Writing Advice Denis Johnson Collected from Flannery O’Connor, Jack Kerouac, Stephen King, Hunter Thompson, Werner Herzog & Many Others

The internet is full of inspirational quotations about writing, many of them from accomplished and respectable writers. But what need could such writers have of inspirational quotations themselves? Surely true literary art flows from its authors without need of encouraging words, demand though it may sustained periods of labor, frustration, and even suffering. These days, more than a few who seek to create such art spend time studying not just its past masterworks but its living masters. “Some ...

The Legend of How Bluesman Robert Johnson Sold His Soul to the Devil at the Crossroads

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XaKkzNqCPnc We remember the bluesman Robert Johnson as the Jimi Hendrix of the 1930s, a guitarist of staggering skill who died before age thirty. Both found mainstream success, but Johnson’s came posthumously: in fact, his music and Hendrix’s first music hit it big in the same decade, the 1960s. King of the Delta Blues Singers, an album of Johnson’s songs released by Columbia Records in 1961, had a great influence on the likes of Bob Dylan, Keith Richards,...
