Dennis McCarthy: A cruise down Van Nuys Blvd.’s memory lane

Tom Whitebirch pulled his 2015 GMC Acadia to the curb in front of Keyes Motors on Van Nuys Boulevard last week, and saw in his mind’s eye a short, fat kid wearing red and white checkered overalls holding up a hamburger on a plate, smiling at him. He’s not 82 now, he’s 16 – driving his 1941 Mercury Coupe with a powder blue paint job he paid $200 bucks for in 1953. Not the paint job, the whole car. A Bob’s Big Boy Restaurant used to be right here. It’s where all his pals in the Jesters, Hi Hats, a...

Frumpy Middle-aged Mom: Thanks, kids, for changing the radio station on me

Believe me when I tell you that it pains me to say this, but thank you, children. Thank you for annoying the you-know-what out of me for the last 12 years, which is about how long your arms have been long enough to reach over to change the radio channel without my permission. Many of you reading this probably know the fun of driving with little kids on the car. When you’re not shouting at them to stop bickering and sit back down in their seats, they can actually be entertaining when you all sing...

Is It Love or Infatuation?

Falling in love feels euphoric, transporting us into a world of vivid colors. Everything is new and exciting. At first glance, it’s not much different from the experience of infatuation.

How do you know if what you have is love or infatuation? Here are a few ways you can begin to distinguish between the two. ...

7 Ways to Let Go of a Past Love

According to Oscar Wild, “the heart was made to be broken.” Few experiences are as painful as severing the ties with a romantic partner — even if you’re the one who initiated the breakup. Your world may feel groundless, colorless, meaningless. However, a heartbreak can also inspire surprising self-growth and gift you with a sense of independence and vitality that you didn’t know what possible. Often tears fertilize the seeds of self-transformation and nurture a new self that needed to be discov...

So long, sun dance! Robert Redford has us falling for his charms one last time, says BRIAN VINER 

The Old Man & The Gun (12A) Verdict: Whimsically engaging  Rating: Robert Redford gives what he has said will be his valedictory cinematic performance in the Old Man & The Gun, before shuffling, or at least walking with the purposeful but rather stiff gait of the codger he now inescapably is, into retirement. It appears that the great man, now 82, might backtrack on his plans to retire from acting.  But this is the perfect movie for his swansong, if swansong it proves to be, not least becau...

The Best Soundtracks of 2018: “What Does Joy Sound Like?”

The films of 2018 featured lovely, strange, and sometimes downright terrifying music. Just what it is that makes a good soundtrack? Is it something that stands out, intruding on scenes? Or is it something that hangs back, to the point where you don’t even notice it? Or perhaps it’s something in between. Or maybe the best film scores are the ones that trigger a specific emotion somewhere within your mind; a memory, a regret, a loving embrace. Music that cuts right through to your very soul. Musi...
