From one phone call to 40 million Instagram views, two So Cal students start national push for ethnic studies

It started about 13 months ago, with a FaceTime chat between a couple of friends. Now, it’s a message resonating across the country. Diversify Our Narrative – a push to expand multicultural studies in public schools – was born because two Stanford students, Jasmine Nguyen and Katelin Zhou, were inspired by the Black Lives Matter protests that followed the murder of George Floyd. Their non-profit has one goal; to achieve racial justice through education. Nguyen and Zhou’s first step was to circul...

Why Matthew Specktor went ‘Crashing’ into the lives of Southern California’s creative people

Matthew Specktor, author of the novels “That Summertime Sound” and “American Dream Machine,” was working on a TV pilot when he realized he just wasn’t enjoying the process. But he knew what did sound appealing: Writing about other creative people, like the artist and writer Eve Babitz and a list that eventually included director Hal Ashby, singer-songwriter Warren Zevon and actress Tuesday Weld among them. “On a particularly depressing day when I was slogging along with the pilot, I thought, ‘I ...

Tokyo Olympics opening ceremony – in pictures

With a blaze of indigo and white fireworks lighting the night sky, the Tokyo Olympics opening ceremony has started. In a nearly empty national stadium, devoid of any crowd energy, it began with a single female athlete at the centre of the stadium, kneeling. As she stood, the shadow behind her took the shape of a seedling, growing as she walked. A number of athletes were featured in a video that started with the moment Tokyo won the Olympic bid in 2013, before showing images of a world silenced b...

White House turns up heat on COVID ‘disinformation dozen’

By Donie O’Sullivan | CNN The White House turned up the pressure on Silicon Valley to get a handle on vaccine misinformation Thursday, specifically singling out 12 people one group dubbed the “disinformation dozen,” saying they were responsible for a great deal of misinformation about Covid-19. “There’s about 12 people who are producing 65% of anti-vaccine misinformation on social media platforms,” White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki said Thursday.

An Interview with Paul Osimo on "Fixed Spools" and the Lo-fli Story

I guess it was the fall of 2018 when I was first aware of Lo-fli and the idea of a "fixed spool" fly reel design with their Kickstarter campaign that I highlighted in a long ago T.F.M. post.  They didn't meet their fundraising goal but designer and angler Paul Osimo didn't give up.  He continued to work on his design, more field testing, trying new things, making new things, and from time to time I'd see an update on their Instagram page of their progress.  Do we really need a "fixed spool" fly ...

Why LA band Arms Akimbo is turning its new album into a TV show

In a rough cut of the video for “It Takes,” the first song from the upcoming album by L.A.-born band Arms Akimbo, the three band members are fishing alongside a river when a young woman comes by and catches the eye of one of the musicians just before she catches the first fish. The video is less than a minute long, so people only get to hear a small portion of the song and may be left wondering what will happen next with the blossoming love story and what about that song? Stay tuned for the next...
