Jamie Foxx Is The Voice Of Pixar’s First Black-Led Film

But Pixar did a lot more, Foxx says, than just hire a Black man to be the lead character. “The filmmakers enlisted a host of A-list cultural, music and faith consultants — including Ryan Coogler, Kenya Barris, Quincy Jones and Yo-Yo Ma — to lend their expertise and perspective to the film’s story, in addition to the artisans who worked on the film directly, like Jon Batiste (who composed original music for the film) or Daveed Diggs and Ahmir ‘Questlove’ Thompson (who voiced characters Paul and ...

Best Wild West towns to visit

Americans have always had a fascination with the Wild West. The gunfights, rodeos, tumbleweeds, and dusty saloons of America’s untamed frontier might sound like cinematic tropes, but they’re also a very real part of the country’s history. The Wild West represents a unique period in the growth of the US, when borders were being expanded and new lands discovered during the late 19th century. Sure, Hollywood has dramatized the Wild West and turned it into a cinematic cliche, but that doesn’t de...

How Burning Man's Black Rock City rises into a 70,000-person city and vanishes in less than 2 months

It takes more than a month to build Black Rock City each year for Burning Man. The process begins with a ceremony to mark the center of the city, after which teams survey the land, build a fence, and prepare all of the infrastructure. About two weeks in, artists with the biggest installations arrive to set up.  Though the festival's attendance has continued to grow, the city's dimensions have largely remained the same. For most of the year, the 9-square-mile area where Burning Man is held lo...

This Custom-Built Twin Turbo Pantera is a Ford Lover’s Dream

Like every red-blooded lad coming of age in the 1960s, Joe Curley was obsessed with all things automotive. “I grew up in Chicago’s South Side, and by the time I secured a driver’s license, I was already bitten by the hot rod bug,” he remembers. “I was tinkering with engines and helping anyone who would let me hang around, as I didn’t have my own car, and I got an on-the-job, school-of-hard-knocks learning experience.” Curley’s love of fast cars eventually led a spot on a racing team run out of C...

Bonsignore: Rams punter Johnny Hekker leaps into action to help Ventura County fire victims

THOUSAND OAKS –  The call to action was immediate, but hardly a surprise given who Johnny Hekker is and what he’s all about. He isn’t a lifelong member of the Ventura County community, he doesn’t  personally know anyone affected by the Thomas Fire raging across the foothills of nearby Ventura and, given the precious few off days he gets as the punter for the Los Angeles Rams, it’s not like anyone would have blamed him for merely being a concerned observer of the destruction happening 20 or so mi...
