No more baseball games on the radio? What the A’s move to streaming could mean

The Oakland A’s have abandoned radio as one source for fans to hear their baseball games. In radio’s place will be streaming via TuneIn, and I assume satellite radio service SiriusXM. While the A’s are the first — and so far only — team to leave radio, will others follow suit? My guess? I’m going to say no. Radio is still far too easy to use compared with almost every other source, and leaving radio most certainly does take leave a huge chunk of your fans without a way to follow the team. Not ev...

What’s the state of black film today? These experts explore the range of African-American movie achievements

Melvin Van Peebles had directed a few short films in the late ’50s when he left San Francisco for Hollywood with the goal of trading his day job on a cable car for a career behind the camera. “They said, ‘We don’t need cable car operators as film directors,’” said his son Mario Van Peebles, a second-generation filmmaker, as he introduced a newly restored version of his father’s first feature “The Story of a Three-Day Pass” at the Egyptian Theatre in Los Angeles on Sunday, Feb. 16. “He said, ‘No,...

Radio: How this one station made the move to No. 1

KFMB-FM (100.7) has been on the air in San Diego since 1950, though it didn’t get its official license and call letters until September of 1959. At that time and until 1975, like so many FM stations of the era, it played what is called Beautiful Music, a format consisting primarily of long sweeps of instrumental music with few announcements or DJ chatter. Beautiful Music was designed to appeal to the early listeners of FM radio who tended to be older, more affluent, and less interested in the te...

Yes, that casino you saw in that movie or Netflix comedy is in Southern California

Some of Southern California’s casinos have reached iconic status with their giant hotel towers, expansive gaming floors and Vegas-style decor, so it’s no wonder they’re attracting guests and big name acts yearly but they’re also drawing another group — studios ready to shoot a movie or an episode of their next big TV show. Several large casinos in Southern California have served as stand-ins for major gambling locales such as Las Vegas or Atlantic City because of their proximity to Los Angeles-b...

Fantasy Springs Resort Casino has a role in upcoming Val Kilmer film ‘Pay Dirt’

This Batman producer reveals why Joker actors win Oscars

Michael Uslan can clearly see himself on a bench outside the offices of Columbia Pictures on the day of darkest despair for him and the Batman. It’s the early ’80s, and he and his producing partner Ben Melnicker had just run out of studios to pitch on Uslan’s dream of a new kind of Batman movie, one where Batman was a darker, more serious character than the campy caped crusader he’d been on TV in the ’60s (and at times in the comic books, too). “I had my head between my legs at this point — this...

Oscars 2020: Here’s what the Academy voters got right

I’ll never say anything bad about the Oscars again. Well, at least not until next awards season. Wait, OK, there’s this: It’s taken the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences 92 friggin’ tries to finally recognize that Hollywood isn’t the only place in the world that makes a Best Picture. Choosing Bong Joon Ho’s uncategorizably original class war parable “Parasite” as the first non-English winner in the top category was some kind of going the extra mile, however.

Oscars: Does a film’s genre affect its chances of winning?

With the 92nd Academy Awards on Feb. 9, 2020, we look at how popular film genres have changed over generations. What’s a genre? The word is French and means type or category. There is no scientific method of assigning a film to genres, which began as a way filmmakers could easily cast and market their movies. Genre refers to recurring, repeating and recognizable patterns including subject matter, characters or settings. In the silent film era, many movies began to fall into categories such as We...
