John Waters Designs a Witty Poster for the New York Film Festival

Yesterday, Film at Lincoln Center unveiled the poster for the 58th New York Film Festival (September 17-October 11, 2020). And it's created by none other than filmmaker, artist, and “Pope of Trash,” John Waters. The New York Film Festival writes: The "poster is both a fond tribute and witty parody of the historic festival, poking fun at the long-held stereotypes, valid critiques, and presumed pomp and circumstance of the annual Lincoln Center event. The concept was developed before the current ...

Fantasy Springs Resort Casino has a role in upcoming Val Kilmer film ‘Pay Dirt’

Director Christian Sesma had long wanted to work on a gritty and high stakes heist movie inspired by some classics, but he didn’t want it filmed just anywhere — he wanted it filmed in the place where he was born, raised and still lives now: the Coachella Valley.

Highlights From The 2019 Bombay Beach Biennale

An "art moment" turned "art movement" in the Southern California Desert A small art movement is gaining momentum in Bombay Beach, just 40 miles from the Palm Springs area. The town is situated on the edge of the Salton Sea, California’s largest inland body of water. The Sea was created by accident in the early 1900s, when a levee broke on the Colorado River dam, …

The West accepts its drought-ridden future, slashes water use

Out West, the future is dry. Amid an unprecedented 19-year drought in the expansive Colorado River Basin — which supplies water to 40 million Americans — seven Western states have acknowledged that the 21st century will only grow drier as temperatures continue to rise. And that means less water in the 1,450-mile Colorado River. On Tuesday, water managers from states including California, Utah, and New Mexico announced a drought plan (formally called a Drought Contingency Plan), which cuts their ...

Chicken-killing Newcastle disease prompts widespread quarantines in Southern California

With virulent Newcastle disease killing a growing number of Southern California chickens, state Veterinarian Annette Jones announced Wednesday a poultry quarantine for all of Los Angeles County and large portions of San Bernardino and Riverside counties. The highly contagious respiratory virus is nearly always fatal for all poultry and has most affected chickens in the current outbreak.

Somewhere over the rebar rainbow, Desert X brings a splash of color to Coachella Valley

Desert X, a collection of public art so ambitious it crosses an international border, has returned to the Coachella Valley.

Things to see around Joshua Tree

Deserts, in most parts of the world, are nomadic wastelands. Even if you can appreciate the beauty of endless sand and imposing red rocks, you typically won’t find much in those deserts aside from wandering tribes and the occasional outpost. But not in California. America’s home to the far-out and untraditional has filled its desert with art installations, deserted water parks, and Old West ghost towns that make a road trip through the desert as great a tourist attraction as Disneyland or Yos...

Debt decreased under Trump administration: Letters

Re “Fiscal conservatism? Then vote for Democrats” (Letters, Oct. 17): Far be it from me to differ with letter writer Cathie English, but every article I found shows that the debt actually decreased under the Trump administration. Last I checked, he is a Republican. The debt did go up under the Obama administration and he’s a Democrat. Now, I’m no financial analyst, but I think this refutes the writer’s claims. Besides, with their record of tax and spend, to say that the Democrats are the party o...

This is a friggin thread about Fresno, fools

Quote: Originally posted by WSU MUP Student I'll have to check that out. I've always been intrigued by the Salton Sea. I read it when I first got to Fresno. I also read a book at the library there about the history of water development in Fresno County. A lot of water rights were hashed out in court there and a lot of equipment was developed that was patented. The county has a rich history and played an important role in water development...

Dirty air and disasters sending kids to the ER for asthma

Children in some California counties visited emergency rooms for asthma at nearly twice the statewide rate, according to the latest data — a phenomenon that experts blame largely on dangerous air pollution. While children in some of these counties struggle with consistent, long-term exposure to bad air, experts also point to the effects of environmental disasters, such as wildfires and the spread of toxic dust from a dying lake. California children made 69,375 visits to emergency rooms for asthm...
