How to clear out your closets and keep old clothes out of landfills

Cleaning out the closet has never been a simple task, just ask anyone who is currently obsessed with Marie Kondo. But all that tidying up is complicated by the negative impact fashion waste has had on the environment. The United States Environmental Protection Agency reported that, in 2015, 10.5 million tons of discarded textiles ended up in landfills. That’s a lot of wasted material. And while hoarding everything isn’t likely an option – do you really need the shirt that hasn’t fit right in dec...

Best Chinese food in Los Angeles

For many, Los Angeles ends at the river. But if you stop there, you fall short of exploring one of the best Chinatowns in America. The San Gabriel Valley in East LA is known for strip malls, but not the soulless type of strip mall devoid of culture you’d find most everywhere else in the country. Drive down Valley Boulevard and you’ll see that it’s an artery that connects the hundreds of Chinese restaurants in the cities of Monterey Park, Alhambra, San Gabriel, and Rosemead. These strip malls...

Fascinatin' Rhythm

When I wrote my history book, Strike Up the Band, I had two primary agendas. One was to reject the premise of all other musical theatre history books, that the Rodgers & Hammerstein musical was the pinnacle of the art form. It wasn't. The other agenda was to include in the story of our art form all the people of color, the women, the people with disabilities who helped shape the American musical theatre but get left out of almost all history books. I hope I did a decent job of re-balancing our ...

My Top 10 Hostels in Sydney in 2019

Updated: 1/9/2019 | January 9th, 2019 Hostels in Sydney are expensive. Since I started visiting the city, I’ve seen hostel prices skyrocket as just the cost of living in Australia has gone up. Even when you factor in the favorable exchange rate right now, it’s just expensive to get a bed here, especially at some of the larger, more upscale hostels. However, with a little planning, you can make sure you’re getting the most bang for your buck. The cheapest hostels in Sydney are found in the K...

Everything Steven Soderbergh Watched and Read in 2018, Including His Forthcoming Netflix Projects

It has become a tradition for Steven Soderbergh to release a list of everything that he watched throughout the preceding year, encompassing feature films, television shows, and short films, and he certainly didn’t slow down his viewing habits at all this year, even if he maybe spent too much time watching the Winter Olympics in February last year. Last year’s list from Steven Soderbergh features no less than nine viewings of Ocean’s 8, and since the movie didn’t come out until June 5, 2018, it ...

What is baijiu: Everything to know

There’s a good chance that you’re familiar with vodka and whiskey. It’s possible you’re familiar with mezcal and various types of amaro.

Obamacare Sign-Ups Beat Forecast Despite GOP Efforts To Undermine Law

The Permanent Gift Guide 2018 – Buy Stuff That Lasts Forever
