Spring 2020 Media Recommendations

I haven’t posted much since April. I had no motivation during the quarantine. I was stressed, and my body reacted strangely. For a brief while, my attention span was too short to do much else than work. Fortunately, I feel better in most ways and have dived back into my favorite podcasts and discovered new authors. So there are plenty of books, podcasts, and videos that I can recommend for anyone who wants to fill some time or learn more about the world they live in. They’re mostly about sex, bu...

KFI’s John & Ken: Remembering their early radio days as music DJs

John Kobylt and Ken Chiampou — you know them as John and Ken — are the hugely popular afternoon drive team that helped build KFI (640 AM) into the tale radio juggernaut that it is. They arrived in Los Angeles in 1992, and except for a small stint doing mornings at KABC (790 AM), they have held been KFI’s afternoon stars, maintaining dominance in their time slot for most of their nearly three decades here. They are the guys that can drive you nuts. John is actually much like me, often taking the ...

Joel McHale describes getting terrorized by Kevin James’ neo-Nazi character in thriller ‘Becky’

Joel McHale says the decision to take a role in the new action thriller “Becky” was an easy one. He’d seen the 2017 film “Bushwick” by co-directors Jonathan Milott and Cary Murnion and loved it, and he’d worked before with teen actor Lulu Wilson who was set to play the title role. And the villain? The really bad guy who would terrify and torture McHale and his family throughout the movie? Well, that cinched it. Kevin James as Dominick and Lulu Wilson as Becky in the new action thriller “Beck...

The heat is on

It's been hotter, but Wednesday was by far the hottest day of 2020, so far. We got up over 30ºC and are expecting more of the same today, with a cool down over the weekend. I've started washing windows and plan to do some more this morning. Ken made great progress on cleaning winter's grunge off the front gate. These (and other) spring cleaning chores got postponed because of the chilly rainy spell we had in the first half of June. So now it's summer cleaning. And the garage is just begging to b...

Coronavirus pummels commercial real estate, could end long boom

By Joyce M. Rosenberg and Ken Sweet, The Associated Press Americans are likely to see more “for rent” signs in the coming months as many businesses devastated by the coronavirus pandemic abandon offices and storefronts and potentially end a long boom in the nation’s commercial real estate market. Hotels, restaurants and stores that closed in March have seen only a partial return of customers, and many may fail. Commercial landlords have already reported an increase in missed rent payments. They ...

Not unhinged

Here's a close-up of one of those hinges on the church doors in yesterday's post. I think it (the hinge) is a work of art. There are two, up and down, on each of the two doors. We saw a lot of beautiful iron work in Collonges during our short visit. A door hinge made of "fer forgé" (wrought iron) in Collonges-la-Rouge, April 2006. It looks like we'll be having a mini heat wave starting tomorrow. The temperatures are predicted to get up to 30ºC (86ºF). It will be a nice change from the cool and...

Eglise Saint-Pierre

This is the entrance to Saint Peter's Church in Collonges-la-Rouge. The church dates from the eleventh and twelfth centuries and is built with the Collonges' characteristic red sandstone. It's not a big church, but it has a lot of character. A fancy entrance to a modest church. Saturday was a beautiful day, sunny and pleasant. I was at the St.-Aignan market around 09h00, and it was quite busy. There were more vendors and more shoppers than I've seen there in the last few weeks, probably becaus...

It's about time, Aunt Jemima

When Quaker Oats announced Wednesday that it would be changing the packaging and name of its 131-year-old Aunt Jemima brand, my immediate response was: What took them so long? Original pancake mix with the most recent Aunt Jemima update, circa 1989. I’ve been unable to learn the name of the woman whose image is used in the current packaging; she may be a composite.   This is a brand name whose racist roots are only thinly covered by a modern mascot. It’s a troubled name that hurts far ...

Seeing red

The last stop on our April 2006 road trip to the Dordogne in southwestern France was a town called Collonges-la-Rouge. It's actually in the Limousin region (when I say "region," I'm speaking geographically, not administratively). It's a town that Ken and I visited years earlier while vacationing in France. The striking red sandstone of Collonges-la-Rouge. The town is essentially a tourist destination these days, inhabited by artists and craftspeople, with myriad boutiques and restaurants to ca...

My introduction to Gad on the set of Kenneth Branagh’s Artemis Fowl was watching him get attached to a giant wire harness stretching outside the front door or the Fowl Manor which has been constructed for the film and yanked at 30mph out of the building and into a waiting crash pad.

Josh Gad’s ‘Artemis Fowl’ Character is Like the Han Solo of Dwarves [Set Visit Interview]

Josh Gad seems to have a penchant for playing wacky supporting characters in Disney fantasy films. After the wild success of his sentient snowman Olaf in Frozen, the actor has appeared as the foppish Lefou in the live-action adaptation of Beauty and the Beast, and now as Mulch Diggums in the upcoming Artemis Fowl. The kleptomaniac dwarf is a fan-favorite of Eoin Colfer’s books, the first of which Gad read to prepare for the part, but the thing that drew him to the project was the chance to play...

15 Team Collaboration Tools to Boost Digital Marketing Team’s Productivity

“Ken uses XYZ software to enhance the productivity of his agile software development team. Should I use the same tool to boost the performance of my marketing team?” Most of the business owners have this thought in their mind. So, let’s answer this: No, you cannot use the same tool. Different teams have different needs and responsibilities. Therefore, software that proved a boon for your development team might not yield the same results for your digital marketing team. So, develop a list of best...

Aarogya Setu App and its many conflicts

The Indian central government has been promoting the Aarogya Setu app to enable contact tracing as a mean to control the virality.

Meanwhile, back at the ranch...

I'm continuing to post photos from our trip to the Dordogne region in April 2006. Back then, I had just begun blogging and I didn't post many of the photos I took there. The pictures I did post were in a smaller format than I use now, so some of those old images are getting a second life. Little house on the prairie this is not. But I don't remember the name or location of the castle. Today is Saturday, which means it's market day. Although our asparagus guy is done with asparagus, he'll still...

Santa Monica businesses hit by unrest: ‘Our life’s work being destroyed’

Stunned business owners gathered Monday morning in the Santa Monica shopping district to access the damage and clean up debris, trash and graffiti following chaotic protests against police brutality a day earlier.

The sidewalks near the popular Sake House by Hikari restaurant on Santa Monica Boulevard were covered with broken glass, charred chairs and tables outside....

Last of the asparagus

The guy we get our asparagus from at the Saturday market in Saint-Aignan told me that this was the last week for his asparagus. I'm glad we got some over these past few weeks; we nearly missed the season due to the coronavirus confinement. That afternoon, I prepared the kilo bundle that I bought by cutting off the tough bottoms, peeling the rest, and steaming it. A kilo of white asparagus, trimmed, peeled, and steamed. Ken added about half of the asparagus to an Asian-style cashew chicken reci...
