A disaster bingo card for the 2020 "Funpocalypse"

My pal Hugh D'Andrade mocked up this "2020 Funpocalypse" bingo card in response to humorous social media posts he was seeing by artist Isabel Samaras. With each disaster, she's been joking, "OK, who had {insert terrible thing} on their 2020 Bingo card?" What is it missing? Oh, other terrible 2020 stuff like "police murder of African Americans; UFOs; Mitch McConnell; bee colony collapse; evictions; and the plague," Hugh writes. Sadly, it seems we all "win" this game of bingo. P.S. Isabe...

Grow beautiful plants in tight spaces using aeroponics

Whether your interest in growing plants centers on food, beauty, or fragrance, you can bring all of them into your life by using water as your growing medium. At the outset, I must express appreciation to Patti Hugh of Huntington Beach for emailing me about her Tower Garden. It introduces a whole new avenue for growing plants.  Those whose only area for growing is a sunny patio or balcony can still grow crops and have plenty of space to sit and admire them as the base of the tower only covers a ...

5 Things We Loved About ‘Star Trek: Picard’ Season 1 (And 3 Things We Hated)

The first season of Star Trek: Picard was as frustratingly mixed as any first Trek season. As thrilling as it was to see Jean-Luc Picard return, its great ideas and story elements are tantalising moments amid a show that’s merely pretty good. The central story is solid. It’s the best-shot Star Trek show to date, shying away from shiny sci-fi precision in favour of earthy tones and messy spills of light. The inevitable moments of fan service mostly serve the story. And while its structure and t...

Michael Chabon is afraid he didn’t make ‘Star Trek: Picard’ obviously gay enough. Really.

Chabon on set with Executive Producer Akiva Goldsman What’s a classy, Pulitzer Prize-winning author like Micahel Chabon doing in the Star Trek toybox? Chabon burst onto the literary scene with his debut novel The Mysteries of Pittsburgh in 1988, which made him a best-selling author and–in an even more extraordinary twist for an author–a celebrity. He followed up with other hit novels like Wonder Boys and The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier and Klay, the latter of which won him the coveted Puli...

Coronavirus takes toll on mourners at funerals, changes industry practices

In the midst of dread, the death of a family member is as painful as ever but even more complicated. Janet Noble-Mocias of Chino buried her mother Friday morning at Rose Hills in Whittier with a tiny gathering of family members, the size limited by social distancing edicts. Told they could have only 10 mourners in the Sky Rose Chapel and 10 at the gravesite, the family tried to stretch that number by staggering their approaches and staying long distances apart. “It’s not a good time to be depart...

‘Star Trek’s Jonathan Del Arco on the fate of Hugh Borg, life as an out-actor & showbiz peril

Jonathan Del Arco Jonathan Del Arco has an unassuming quality about him. Dressed in jeans and a grey button-down, raven-headed and youthful beyond his 54 years, he greets us with a firm handshake before rushing off to the bathroom. When he rejoins us at the table of a stylish Burbank coffee shop, he smiles with anticipation. The rest of the patrons seem oblivious to his presence, which baffles us. As an actor with a resume spanning more than 30 years, Del Arco has appeared in Broadway theatre...

Flora of the Silk Road

Having walked the Hindu Kush with Eric Newby I decided to stay put and travel the Silk Road with Colin Thubron. Firstly can I say that 'walk' and 'short' are the ultimate and intentional irony in Eric Newby's A Short Walk in the Hindu Kush (which means Indian Killer apparently) because Eric and Hugh climb, scramble, limp, hobble and generally stagger their way around and I was quite relieved to be sitting in an armchair. It was a short hop for me to hit the Silk Road, something that has always...

Thank Goodness for TV Superheroes

Superhero movies have become the easiest way to make a blockbuster. The Marvel Cinematic Universe and the DC Extended Universe have 31 released films between them, with at least a dozen more on the way. This glut of superhero cinema has burned out even some of the most tried-and-true comic book fans. While DC’s universe occasionally has a more adult edge, the MCU has bombarded viewers with family-friendly, epic storytelling for over a decade. Comic book fans wanting a more mature look into w...

History of Alphabetical Order.

Joe Moran writes for the Guardian about a new book by Judith Flanders, A Place For Everything: The Curious History of Alphabetical Order, which sounds like an interesting read: One of the many fascinations of Judith Flanders’s book is that it reveals what a weird, unlikely creation the alphabet is. Writing has been invented independently at least three times in different parts of the world. The alphabet was invented only once – over 3,000 years ago, in Egypt’s Western desert, along a road used b...

‘Star Wars Resistance’ Sets the Stage for the Series Finale With “Rebuilding the Resistance”

I’ve written before that I found it concerning that there is so little time now to flesh left out the major conflicts of Star Wars Resistance. Which is why “Rebuilding the Resistance,” which can be considered a penultimate chapter before the two-parter series finale, pulls off an impressive feat as it picks up on the slack of more underwhelming developments of the past season. Right off the bat, this episode sets off the fissure in the status quo. Kaz (Christopher Sean) is perplexed by ...
