The company aims to allow for cross-border co-ownership of luxury vacation properties that goes beyond the historical use of timeshares.

There is much about the Boss Baby franchise that eludes me entirely, but that certainly doesn’t mean that the first film didn’t cash in enough to warrant more than one effort to entertain… whoever this entertains. I don’t even remember the theory behind the intelligent babies and their cabal, or if there is one, and The Boss Baby: Family Business doesn’t care. It jumps ahead to a time when Theodore Templeton (Alec Baldwin) and Tim Templeton (James Marsden) are adults, and Tim’s daughter is worki...

How volunteering at Dodger Stadium during COVID-19 influenced author’s book on Los Angeles

One might assume that Rosecrans Baldwin, author of “Paris, I Love You But You’re Bringing Me Down” and “The Last Kid Left,” is L.A. born-and-raised, given that he shares his first name with the street that runs from Manhattan Beach to Fullerton.

Alec Baldwin was never on The Sopranos – but, like many actors, he wanted to be. And he wanted a very specific job: to kill (or whack, as they say) Tony Soprano. Thankfully, no one took Baldwin up on his offer, because having Alec Baldwin show up to murder Tony Soprano would be a little weird. But during an appearance on the Talking Sopranos podcast, hosted by Sopranos veterans Michael Imperioli and Steve Schirripa, Baldwin recounted how he made the folks behind The Sopranos an offer they could...
