St. Vincent talks bringing ‘Daddy’s Home’ to Hollywood Bowl as ‘The Nowhere Inn’ film debuts

“Daddy’s Home,” the sixth studio album from St. Vincent, arrived in May, but Annie Clark, the artist behind the stage name, says it hasn’t felt fully finished until now. “A record doesn’t really feel complete to me until I’ve actually played the songs for people and with people in real-time,” Clark says on a recent phone call. “Because you get to see how the energy in the crowd changes. “You get to see, like, ‘Oh, they’re all singing along to that part,’” she says. “You get to know in a real way...

Rocket Lab boosts its space systems divison in quest to become an “end-to-end space company”

The company, which he founded in 2006, has taken yet another major stride toward that goal with the news Wednesday that it will open a new production facility to manufacture satellite components at a larger scale than ever before.

UCLA will mandate twice-weekly COVID-19 testing for unvaccinated people

David Barton in the News: Remember His Earned Doctorate and Division One Basketball Stardom?

Self-styled historian David Barton is in the news calling State Department officials “clowns” while he and Glenn Beck claim to rescue people in Afghanistan. Ministry Watch issued an appropriate “close look” at Beck and Barton’s charity — the Nazarene Fund — since it is unclear what they are doing in the midst of this disaster. I am not an apologist for the Biden Administration’s handling of the end of the American military presence in Afghanistan. However, if David Barton makes a claim, my exper...

Peter Beck on Rocket Lab’s public listing debut, space SPACs and the Neutron rocket

Peter Beck’s earliest memory is standing outside with his father in his hometown of Invercargill, New Zealand, looking up at the stars, and being told that there could very well be people on planets orbiting those stars looking right back at him. “For a three or four year old, that was a mind-blowing thing that got etched into my memory and from that point onwards, that was me destined to work in the space industry,” he said at the Space Generation Fusion Forum (SGFF). Of course, hindsight is 20...

Republicans are winning political battles by arguing against nonexistent boogeymen

CAPTION Marianne Ayala/Insider The right argues against ideas that don't exist, because they can't argue against the ones that do. Fabricating problems and attaching them to liberalism makes it easy for Republicans to engage with their audience. Without any merit to their actual politics, this is the only way they can maintain their followings. This is an opinion column. The thoughts expressed are those of the author.

The man behind classics like The Producers, Blazing Saddles, and Young Frankenstein is not only still with us, he’s releasing a memoir at the end of this year.

More about North Hollywood, Fonzie and the Rolling Stones

My column about escaping the Inland Empire to spend the Fourth of July weekend housesitting at a friend’s place in North Hollywood drew a few comments, including about the 1926 El Portal Theater. “I grew up in North Hollywood. Nice to see something written about it,” reader Barry Beck says by email. “As I started reading your column, I wondered, is he going to mention the El Portal?” Good thing I included it. I’d hate to let a reader down. Beck continues: “My first-ever date was at the El Portal...

A set of gleanings intervened, which was a good thing and a good token: gleanings mean that there are enough questions and comments to discuss. Comments are not always friendly, but who can live long without making mistakes and arousing someone’s anger?Let me begin by saying that the best authorities disagree on the etymology of beacon, and my suggestion with which I’ll finish this essa...
