Art in the age of artifice

As a magician and sleight-of-hand artist, I've been wrestling with the thorny and slippery notion of Art for a long time. A recent "magical project" rekindled my attention about this ongoing quest. Here follow my latest musings on this domain. What is Art? Art can be seen as the lifeblood running through the veins of human history. From prelinguistic cave dweller to postmodern city dweller, art stands as a witness to the evolution of every culture, reflecting and participating in our views of re...

‘Rock of Ages’ musical has new permanent Hollywood Boulevard home at the Bourbon Room

Whip out the studded belts, dust off the sleeveless denim jacket and fire up the hair crimper. “Rock of Ages” is back in Los Angeles. The Tony Award-nominated musical was born in the now-closed King King nightclub on Hollywood Blvd. in 2005, and after a record-setting run on Broadway and a world tour, it’s in its permanent home at the all-new Bourbon Room, which is now open for business. A 4,000-square-foot bar and eatery fully decked out to give the feel of an underground ’80s rock club, the Bo...

At Christmas Eve ‘Fiddler’ sing-along, Laemmle Theaters feel the love in wake of potential sale

Choruses of nine full movie theaters around Los Angeles crooned, “Matchmaker, Matchmaker” and “If I Were a Rich Man,” on Tuesday night as folk dancing characters of the 1971 film, “Fiddler on the Roof” fluttered across big screens. The Christmas Eve “Fiddler on the Roof” sing-along is a Laemmle Theatres tradition 12 years running. Yet patrons felt an especially deep appreciation for the family-owned art-house chain at this year’s event — it came just a month after owners put up and then took dow...

‘Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker’ takes on its biggest challenge. Does it succeed?

After 8 previous films in this series, as well as related movies, TV shows, cartoons, theme park attractions and one very special holiday TV special, you could be forgiven for having little hope that George Lucas’ Star Wars saga could be wrapped up in one film. How could you hope to pull together story lines and fan theories about the original trilogy, loop in the useful parts of the trade-obsessed prequel trilogy, and somehow follow up the divisive “The Last Jedi” — which to some felt like it r...

2019 was a terrific year for movies. Here are 12 films you have to see

It was a great year for movies. Funny thing to say about 2019? Well, yes, the exhibition business is going through one of its cyclical panic attacks, with box office receipts likely to fall several $100 million short of last year’s $11.823 billion record (and short of a few years’ before that). Once-reliable big studio franchises such as “Terminator” and “Charlie’s Angels” bombed bigger than those things usually do this year, giving the impression that only comics and cartoons can be relied upon...

Burnouts on Hollywood Blvd: F1 drivers bring racing to LA

Daniel Ricciardo visited Los Angeles for the first time about five years ago after his cousin moved here, and the Renault driver quickly realized he felt right at home.

Scotty Bowers, noted queer Hollywood madam, dies at 96

Lovers of Hollywood lore and LGBTQ safe spaces have gone into mourning today. Famed Tinseltown hustler Scotty Bowers has died at age 96. Bowers lived relative anonymity for years before publishing his 2012 memoir Full Service. In it, he detailed his decades of working at a gas station on Hollywood Blvd. which also doubled as a brothel for hetero and same-sex encounters. He began operating as an escort himself, and enlisted friends to do so as well, serving Hollywood Golden Age stars like Kather...

Netflix Plans to Buy Hollywood’s Egyptian Theater; Next Step: World Domination

Netflix is getting into the movie theater business in a big way. The streaming giant has entered into talks with American Cinematheque to buy the historic Egyptian Theater on Hollywood Blvd. On the surface, this looks like the latest step in Netflix’s overarching plan to be taken seriously by the film industry, since many in the business still cringe at Netflix’s streaming-based model. But sources say this is more of a partnership between Netflix and Cinematheque, and not a sign of things to co...

20 Fun and Interesting Things to Do in Los Angeles with Kids

LA is the second biggest city in the USA, and as a visitor it seems like there are endless things to do in Los Angeles with kids! Over the years we’ve been able to visit Los Angeles several times. Firstly solo, then as a couple, and now with our two daughters, Kalyra and Savannah. To be honest we weren’t initially big fans, and it’s taken a while for LA to grow on us. Sometimes you have to visit a place a second or third or even forth time before you can appreciate it. I think it’s because we c...

Kartje: Super Bowl Opening Night was made for guys like Gronk

ATLANTA – Red and blue lights are flashing and loud speakers are blaring as I ascend the stairs into the overstimulating hellscape that is NFL Media Night. I did not have enough caffeine for this. Or perhaps I’ve had too much. It’s hard to tell. My anxiety is building as I stand shoulder to shoulder in a claustrophobic sea of “journalists”, some of whom have come here, as far as I can gather, simply to ask Gronk for his favorite Chick-fil-a order (which, if you’re wondering, is an original chick...
