Criterion Film Offerings: French Noir, Japanese Lovers, American Gangsters and Frames of Pure Serenity

The Criterion Collection, the busiest and most prestigious of companies devoted to classic films, provides a rare delight in this collection of films now available on Blu-ray. These are movies that have never before been on DVD or Blu-ray (at least not in Region 1), and in some cases weren't even on VHS. These tantalizing titles, long heard of but vexingly unavailable until now, are a particular pleasure to for film lovers to enjoy, at last. Panique (dir. Julien Duvivier, 1946) The aloof and mi...

Carrot Peelers, Sales, Personality and Your Job Search

--> A couple of years ago, I saw a bunch of articles in Vanity Fair, The New York Times, The Village Voice, and other publications about a guy named Joe Andes. Here is a portion of one profile of him from the May 2006 Vanity Fair: I n the early 90s a man named Joe Andes began showing up in the bar at the Pierre, Manhattan’s famously posh hotel on the corner of Fifth Avenue and East 61st Street. Joe liked the crowd at the Café Pierre, but the real draw for him was Kathleen Landis, the dimp...

A Summer Phlox Survives Storms and Spies  by  Allen Bush

A field of Russian phloxes. Christian Kress, Sarastro-Stauden photo. Just off our front porch, a Phlox of sentimental interest didn’t flinch during heavy storms a week and a half ago. But what about spies? During the storm, Alfred Hitchcock’s 1959 “psychological fable” North By Northwest played on TV. Our power flickered as foreign spies mistakenly identified and then kidnapped Cary Grant for their own no-good. Grant’s life was turned upside down. He was soon suspected (wrongly) of murder. Gr...

Lakers’ JaVale McGee thriving by ignoring the critics

The starting center for the Los Angeles Lakers is averaging more points and more blocks than he ever has in a 10-year career. Just 14 games in, it’s already looking like a defining season. But on this Saturday morning, hours before tip-off in a smoky Golden One Center against the Sacramento Kings, JaVale McGee isn’t thinking about the goals he has accomplished. He’s thinking about the ones he hasn’t. He has a list of personal goals that reset in 10-game segments. Right now, he’s worried he isn’t...

Woolsey Fire evacuees, human and otherwise, find shelter where they can

People — and animals — evacuated from the Woolsey Fire areas in Los Angeles and Ventura counties jammed official shelters early Friday, fretfully awaiting word about the fate of their homes. They also created impromptu, unofficial shelters at places like the Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf on Ventura Boulevard in Woodland Hills. There, Pierre and Fran de Lespinois sat with their daughter-in-law Misae Kawai and no possessions except the clothes they wore and their cell phones. The couple had spent the nig...

Saint Pierre and Miquelon

Most people aren’t aware that there are two islands off the coast of Newfoundland that are French. They went back and forth being English and then French until a treaty was signed and Saint Pierre and Miquelon became permanently French. They speak French and their currency is the Euro and the electric plugs are French too. The names of the two islands are always said together. There is another island, Langland, but it was considered part of Miquelon and is in fact attached to Miquelon by a narro...

7 of the Best Places to go Kayaking in BC

British Columbia, Canada is one of the most popular kayaking destinations in the world. With 25,725 kilometres of coastline to be explored it can be a bit confusing as to where you may want to go. Luckily I have some suggestions. Here are seven of the best places to go kayaking in BC. Some are merely weekend trips while others like Haida Gwaii deserve a minimum of a week.  Haida Gwaii It’s no surprise that this one is on the list!

In the studio and on the court, JaVale McGee, Lance Stephenson and Lonzo Ball learn to work together

EL SEGUNDO >> There’s a fair amount of secrecy about an upcoming hip-hop track between three collaborators who have never worked together before. But Lance Stephenson is willing to divulge a few precious details for the song he tentatively calls “The Lakers’ Anthem.” What is it about? “Just straight Lakers,” he said. “Playing for the Lakers.

Ducks GM Bob Murray says he didn’t want a rental, so he didn’t trade for Erik Karlsson

SAN JOSE — Ducks general manager Bob Murray acknowledged he could have parted with a similar package of prospects and draft picks that enabled the San Jose Sharks to acquire superstar defenseman Erik Karlsson from the Ottawa Senators last week. But then what? “You’re not going to trade for him for one year,” Murray said. “You’ve got to be able to think you can sign him going forward and I just didn’t feel we would be in a position to sign him going forward. That’s the way it is right now with ou...

Elite League Recap: 9/11/18 Southeast vs. Northeast

The Upper Midwest Elite League season started last weekend with their first full slate of weekend games, and continued on Tuesday night in New Hope, Minnesota when Team Southeast took on Team Northeast, with Southeast prevailing 6-3. It’s still early in the season, and that showed in the early stages of the game. There was lots of speed, but the crispness of puck movement wasn’t able to keep up, leading to some sloppy hockey, with only one goal in the first period, and both goalies shinin...

Bl. Pierre Bonhomme: Preaching With His Life

“Then will the eyes of the blind be opened, the ears of the deaf be cleared; then will the lame leap like a stag, then the tongue of the mute will sing” (Is 35.5-6). “Preach the Gospel at all times,” St. Francis is supposed to have said. “When necessary, use words.” There’s no hard evidence that the Troubadour of Assisi actually uttered this pithy phrase, but it’s the kind of thing you’d expect him to say, for Francis was all about putting faith into action. But tradition also has it that Franci...

Annals of Capitalization.

I thought I was used to the New Yorker‘s stylistic quirks, having read it for many decades now, but two words in this week’s Talk of the Town flummoxed me. From Jill Lepore’s lead Comment: “Serious malfeasance really began with Jackson, reached a pitch with Buchanan, then quieted down until the Presidencies of Grant and Harding, but all these shenanigans, he thought, seemed quaint compared with what Nixon stood accused of.” And from Tyler Foggatt’s piece: “From Queens, the tour might proceed t...
