Listen to Karen Carpenter sing "California Dreamin'" when she was 17

I don't like The Carpenters very much, but I just heard Karen Carpenter's 1967 demo version of "California Dreamin'," which she sang when she was only 17 and I love it. Features brother Richard's cool keyboards, too! From ObscureMedia: Richard Carpenter: From Joe's Studio, circa 1967. — Read the rest

5 Tony Leung Movies To Stream After Shang-Chi And The Legend Of The Ten Rings

"Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings," is a colossal achievement for Marvel Studios, not least because it's the movie that finally brought Tony Leung to Hollywood. Not that he needed Western audiences to become embraced as one of the greatest actors of our time. A Hong Kong cinema legend and longtime heartthrob, Leung gave depth to a problematic villain and arguably ran away with the entire movie. But if "Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings" has you hungering (or thirsting) for more ...

‘Landmark’ labor bill still wreaking economic havoc in California

SACRAMENTO – Just for old time’s sake and because my cellphone battery was about to die, I hailed an airport taxicab during a business trip last week to the East Coast rather than my usual practice of calling for a ride using Uber or Lyft. It was a reminder of how far those gig-based transportation-network services have taken us in just a few years. I needn’t remind you of the general unpleasantness of taxicabs, with their grimy vehicles and old-fashioned credit-card readers – or how much nicer ...

Californians deserve the truth about wildfire prevention efforts

Governing a state is hard work, but governors aren’t supposed to mislead citizens, make up sympathetic stories or create rules they neglect to follow. Yet Gov. Gavin Newsom is a repeat offender of all those. His latest offense? Fudging the numbers on the state’s wildfire prevention efforts. Wildfires are burning vast swaths of California – families evacuated, habitat lost, homes, businesses and communities incinerated. Californians, assured repeatedly that wildfire prevention was a top priority ...

California Dreamin’: A rude awakening

Oh, California. I’m crying into my coffee, though I live back East now. Seldom have we seen the Golden State suffer. It hurts to watch. The free-spirited poets, gold miners and flower children live in lore, but the state has seen better days. A town named Paradise was lost and burned to the ground in 2018, a grim prelude to the summer’s raging wildfires. The governor recall election on Sept. 14 is the clearest indicator of California’s churn, though the discontent is about more than that. Democr...

Desmond Doss wins Bertrando Stakes with heroic effort at Los Alamitos

Desmond Doss, named for a U.S. Army corporal who served as a combat medic in World War II and whose story was well-documented in the 2016 movie “Hacksaw Ridge,” did his late namesake proud Saturday with a come-from-behind victory in the $100,000 Bertrando Stakes at Los Alamitos. Desmond Doss’ owner, Nick Alexander, likes to name his horses after historical figures and former MLB players, and Desmond Doss more than lived up to his lofty name with a victory in the 1-mile race for 3-year-olds and o...

Dirty Honey were riding high when the pandemic shut things down. Here’s what they did next

Two weeks after rock band Dirty Honey played back-to-back sold-out shows at The Parish at House of Blues Anaheim and El Rey Theatre in Los Angeles, the coronavirus pandemic shut the country down. The L.A.-based quartet — vocalist Marc LaBelle, guitarist John Notto, bassist Justin Smolian and drummer Corey Coverstone — had a massive 2019, coming out hot with the single “When I’m Gone” off of its independently released self-titled EP. The band made history that year, becoming the only unsigned art...

California Dreamin’: Cognitive Dissonance and the Tar Pits

I’ve been here many times, including going to school here twice, and having studied and moved in with a cult related to a cannibal cult I tracked down in India. The first school I attended in California was Defense Language Institute at the Presidio of San Francisco. Many people will say this is wrong, and that the Presidio was in Monterey.

Every 10 minutes someone in LA County dies from the coronavirus. Here are some of their stories.

A landscaper. A hairstylist. A father, a mother. A son, a daughter. A best friend. A nurse. A retired dentist. Every 10 minutes, health officials say, someone in Los Angeles County dies from the coronavirus. The virus’s wrath has surged anew in recent weeks, fueled, county officials say, by holiday gatherings, pandemic fatigue and disregard for safety measures. New cases have ballooned. Hospitalizations, which generally lag a couple of weeks behind, have followed. And so has the death toll: LA C...

Pace of Play: Did COVID-19 Teach Us Anything?

Pace of play is a topic all golfers can agree on. It’s too slow and it’s always someone else’s fault. COVID-19 provided a unique opportunity to look at the relative effectiveness of one possible pace-of-play solution. Many courses instituted some sort of single-rider cart policy this year. If you want to use a cart, you’re riding solo. Do single-rider carts speed up pace of play? Pace of Play: The Dilemma We’ve written about the pace of play conundrum before.

Happy Place: The Drive-Thru helped me find my happy place in a mall parking garage

Embarrassing my children makes me happy. My 13-year-old daughter, a.k.a. “the teenager,” like, literally dies when I see her with her friends and I start waving at her frantically while saying, “Hi sweetie, it’s me, Dad. I love you. I’m so proud of you. It’s me, Dad, hi!” For my 10-year-old son, “the boy,” nothing is less cool than getting a hug and a kiss on the head from his old man in front of his friends, because, you know, having a loving dad is so lame. Needless to say, quarantine has real...

His Royal High-ness Prince Harry’s Pot Farm, and stars with only months to live, in this week’s dubious tabloids

"His Royal High-ness!” Prince Harry is “Buying $9m Pot Farm! “ according to the ‘Globe.’ Harry has never been involved in business in his life, but allegedly “told a pal marijuana is something he likes and knows about.” I eat bananas and know something about them too (they’re yellow, curvilinear and tasty) but I’m not about to buy a banana plantation.

CALIFORNIA DREAMIN’: Yamaha TW125 by ND Motociclette

Written by Martin Hodgson If you hang around a custom bike shop long enough to sit through a morning tea break or after hours for a beer, then you’ll hear all sorts of crazy ideas get thrown around. Most are mere fantasies about things nobody within a stone’s throw has the budget to pull off, but every now and then a little slice of genius or something that would be a hoot enters the conversation. A regular customer of Italy’s Nico Dragoni Motociclette was in the workshop when the topic of his...

Cann, the cannabis-infused drink company, moves 150,000 units and raises $5 million

Since its launch in May of last year, the cannabis-infused drink company Cann has sold 150,000 cans of its THC and CBD-infused, alcohol-free, intoxicants, in a sign of success that’s bucking current industry trends,. On its way to that milestone, the company has sold out multiple times as it wrestled with manufacturing facilities that simply couldn’t keep up with demand, according to the company’s co-founders, Luke Anderson and Jake Bullock. Now, thanks to a $5 million investment from new backer...

Jim Morrison Declares That “Fat is Beautiful” …. And Means It

There’s a bit of cognitive dissonance in a young rock god giving voice to the fat pride movement some four decades after his death. Years before social media amplified celebrity weight gain coverage to the realm of national news, The Doors’ lead singer, Lizard King Jim Morrison, was the subject of intense bodily scrutiny. The musician’s drug of choice—alcohol—swiftly added some extra cushioning to the sexy, shirtless young lion image photographer Joel Brodsky managed to capture in 1967. ...
