13 On-the-go Breakfast Spots to Fuel Up for the Day

Look, I understand the reasons to get to the mountain early: shorter lift lines, better snow, less crowds. But unless it’s a powder day, you’ll find me wandering to the mountain at about 10 a.m., aptly caffeinated and with a full belly. And I take the caffeinated/satiated part very seriously. I’m a huge breakfast fan. I grew up in New England, where bacon, egg and cheese sandwiches and black coffee reigned supreme but moved to Colorado where I discovered the magic of spicy breakfast burritos an...

‘Code Geass’ Blends War, Politics, Alternate History, and Teenage Drama Into One Wild Anime

(Welcome to Ani-time Ani-where, a regular column dedicated to helping the uninitiated understand and appreciate the world of anime.)

Back In Lockdown In Europe, What To Read?

For instance, take The Count of Monte Cristo. “At 1,200 pages, The Count of Monte Cristo by Alexander Dumas has the look of a book that might be boringly good for you. … I don’t think I’ve ever read anything with such adrenalin, awe and immersive enjoyment, aided by the zippy and vivid translation.” – Irish Times

The Cast of ‘Succession’ on Their Favorite Lines From Season 2

History 101 In September: TPM’s Favorite Non-Fiction Reads

It’s truly a trip to turn on the TV over the last few weeks and see all the back-to-school commercials inundating the airwaves as if this is a fall like any other. Corona-who? Growing up, I was one of those kids who thoroughly enjoyed going to Staples with my mom for back-to-school shopping, picking out new, colorful notebooks with just the right margins, and seizing my favorite pack of animal print and celebrity icon folders. (Young Jackie was particularly partial to N*Sync and Britany Spear...

Libra Kepub fast page turn stuck?

I decided to start another re-read of Buss's translation of Monte Cristo. I bought it on my Kindle several years ago, and read the Calibre-converted kepub on my H2O2 without incident. Today, I decided to skip through the introduction, foreword etc, taking advantage of the kepub fast page turn. Except, it got stuck. The Libra raced through the book and did not respond to either screen touches or button presses. I only stopped it by pressing the power button. When I turned it back on, I found th...

Boldy James & Jay Versace – “The Versace Tape” (EP Review)

Boldy James is a 38 year old MC from Detroit, Michigan who I first caught wind of with his Alchemist produced 2013 debut M.1.C.S. (My 1st Chemistry Set). The critical acclaim of which that album received would land him a contract with Nas’ independent label Mass Appeal Records, but Boldy unfortunately got incarcerated sometime after. Upon being released, Uncle Al would help get his name back out there by dropping the Boldface  EP last winter & The Price of Tea in China just this past February...

What’s The Most Popular Book In Russian Prisons? Not ‘Crime And ‘Punishment’

No, Dostoevsky’s novel is only the second-most popular title among inmates there; Bulgakov’s The Master and Margarita is in the top spot, with Dumas’s The Count of Monte Cristo at number three.

17 best American food restaurants in the San Fernando Valley

Some time back, flipping through a copy of one of the weekly news magazines, my eye was caught by a double-page advertisement for a contest sponsored by one of the cigarette companies. The advertisement consisted of a map of the United States, and a banner headline about winning a gourmet tour of America. I stared at the ad, dumbfounded. I have long come to believe that one of the best-kept culinary secrets of the world is that American food is really great stuff, and here that secret was, laid ...
