Weekend Box Office: No One Can Defeat ‘Joker’, Not Even ‘The Addams Family’ or ‘Gemini Man’ (But Hey, How About That ‘Parasite’!)

The weekend box office returns are in, and once again, Joker reigns supreme. The Todd Phillips movie starring Joaquin Phoenix as a crazy killer clown who loves to dance ended up at the top of the box office for the second week in a row. As far as new releases go, The Addams Family had a strong opening at second place. But Gemini Man, starring Will Smith and Will Smith, had trouble drawing a crowd. The real winner of the weekend, though, was Bong Joon Ho‘s Parasite, which only opened in three th...

All My Friends performer DJ Harvey aims to bring people together on the dance floor

If disco has a champion, it’s DJ Harvey. “One of the best genres in dance music is disco in many respects,” says DJ Harvey on a call from Ibiza last month. “They often say that house music is disco’s revenge. It’s nice that the mother of house can be recognized.” It’s evening there and DJ Harvey, whose full name is Harvey Bassett, has just risen for the night. He’s on the Spanish island for his annual residency, Mercury Rising, which is celebrating its fifth anniversary, an event commemorated wi...

Week 6 Fantasy Wrap: Undefeated 49ers make a stunning statement

The 49ers traveled during a short week missing Joe Staley, Mike McGlinchey and Kyle Juszczyk while facing a rested Rams team coming off a mini-bye yet somehow won easily despite losing the turnover battle. San Francisco entered with the sixth-best DVOA through four games ever (the other five teams all reached the Super Bowl) and were graded first in Pro Football Focus, so it's safe to consider this team real, and the Rams have an excuse given the matchup (only the Patriots have allowed a lo...

Saddleridge fire, Riverside County blazes are polluting the air. Here’s what you can do to protect yourself

If you’re in the San Fernando Valley or further east in Riverside County Friday, Oct. 11, you saw it.

LA council members call for stop to ‘no-fault’ evictions

LOS ANGELES — Los Angeles City Council members Mitch O’Farrell, Curren Price and Nury Martinez on Friday proposed drafting an emergency ordinance to keep people from being evicted without cause until a state law goes into effect Jan. 1.

Coyotes on the Right Track, Despite Scoring Woes

The first two games of the 2019-20 season are in the books, and the Arizona Coyotes remain winless, scoring just one goal in the process. This is familiar territory for Arizona – it’s the third straight campaign where the team has failed to record a victory in the first two games, but this season has a different feel than 2017-18 and 2018-19. Through two games, the Coyotes have outshot the opposition 68-55, out-chanced the opposition 26-20, and have been a positive possession team, posting a ...
