‘I Am the Night’ Review: Patty Jenkins and Chris Pine Reunite For Some Pulp Fiction

Hard-boiled dialogue. Trips to the morgue. Boozy floozies. Sharp-dressed men lurking in the shadows. Dames, death and danger. We’re knee-deep in the world of pulp and noir. This is a highway trafficked by Raymond Chandler and James Ellroy. Where the women are imperiled, the men are corrupt, and not even all the stars of Hollywood can cut through the darkness. Say hello to I Am the Night. The Wonder Woman team of director Patty Jenkins and actor Chris Pine re-team to tell this tantalizing tale, ...

On the Smugglers’ Radar

“On The Smugglers’ Radar” is a feature for books that have caught our eye: books we have heard of via other bloggers, directly from publishers, and/or from our regular incursions into the Amazon jungle. Thus, the Smugglers’ Radar was born. Because we want far more books than we can possibly buy or review (what else is new?), we thought we would make the Smugglers’ Radar into a weekly feature – so YOU can tell us which books you have on your radar as well! On Ana’s Radar: First up, a bo...

Anticipated LA Unified strike has some parents planning to pull their kids out of school

It was nearly 30 years ago when Yanina Nunez was a student during the last Los Angeles Unified School District strike. She was a third grader at Harbor Elementary School. Nunez remembers the nine-day strike in 1989 as chaotic. “They would send us from one class to another,” she said. “There wasn’t a lot of supervision, they would just cram us in the auditorium. We would just get there and do nothing.” Now a parent of two, Nunez doesn’t want her children to go through the same experience she did,...

How to Always Take Sharp Photos

A sharp photo is one where the subject is in focus with clear lines, crisp details, and no (unintended) blurring. It’s generally a sign of a high-quality, technically excellent image. Here’s how to make sure you always take sharp photos. RELATED: What Does It Mean for a Photo to be “Sharp?” I’ve explained in detail before what makes a photo sharp, but now we’re going to look at the practical side of things.

FIRST STEP Act leads to release of Matthew Charles from federal prison after remarkable re-incarceration

I discussed in this post from last May the remarkable case of Matthew Charles, who a few years ago had his 35-year sentence reduced thanks to lower crack sentencing guidelines, but thereafter was reincarcerated when the Sixth Circuit concluded he was not eligible to benefit from guideline changes.  Now, as this local article details, Charles today has been freed thanks to the FIRST STEP Act: Matthew Charles, a man who was forced to return to prison after a court reversed a judge's ruling that h...

Lamenting lack of retroactive application of new sentencing changes in FIRST STEP Act (... and so rooting again for robust clemency)

This recent piece from The Guardian, fully headlined "Current inmates feel left behind by Trump's criminal justice reform bill; First Step Act reduces the mandatory sentence for three-strikes offenders but the provisions will not be made retroactive," spotlights how certain inmates have gotten left behind even as the inappropriateness of their sentences inspired key sentencing reforms in the FIRST STEP Act.  Here are excerpts: On paper, Chris Young seems exactly the kind of person a prison refo...

Soul Serenade: Dee Dee Sharp, “Ride!”

When we think of Philly Soul, we tend to think of Gamble & Huff and their work with the Intruders, Harold Melvin & the Bluenotes, the O’Jays, and many more. We also think of Thom Bell and his work with the Delfonics, the Stylistics, and the Spinners. And while those producers, songwriters, and artists certainly represent the peak of Philly Soul, the fact remains that there was great music coming out of Philadelphia before any of them arrived on the scene. Case in point, Dee Dee Sharp. Dione LaRu...

How to Focus With Wide Aperture Lenses

Focusing is easy when you’re using an aperture of f/8 or narrower: most things in the scene will be pretty much in focus. When you start using wide apertures like f/2.8, f/1.8, or even f/1.2, however, you’ll start to miss focus a lot more. Here’s how to get the best results when focusing with wide aperture lenses.

Tools & Craft #117: Why New Tools Used to Arrive Unsharpened

When you purchase an edge tool (plane, chisel, knife, carving tool, etc.), it will either have a "Factory Edge" or be described as "Sharp and ready to use." The idea of having a ready-to-use status is a comparatively new idea in tool marketing. Up until fairly recently - let's say 1960 - it was generally understood that most of the customers of tools were craftsmen who understood that even a new and sharpened tool would, after a few minutes work, require resharpening again. So why spend more ...

Back to Indy Arms Co on Saturday afternoon with the P89 and another hundred rounds of CCI Blazer Brass 124gr FMJ. I'm finally developing a reasonable amount of speed with the P89, but it's the opposite of effortless. The slide is a lot of reciprocating mass on this thing, and the backstrap is so poorly-shaped that it's difficult to mitigate recoil by choking way up on the thing.Sharp-eyed readers will note that it's still weeping visible oil out from the slide grooves. There's plenty of lubri...

Listen to Tiny Tim's unreleased cover of "House of the Rising Sun"

In 1994, pop artist, songwriter, and filmmaker Martin Sharp produced a covers album for legendary singer/ukulele maestro Tiny Tim. The album, "Tiny Tim's Pop Album," was never officially released but it's really quite something. Below, from those recording sessions, is Tim's take on the traditional folk tune "The House of the Rising Sun." "Tim's appropriation of song is very much like my appropriation of images," Sharp said.
