Gavin Newsom speeding toward a recall election

The reviews are beginning to come in for Gov. Gavin Newsom’s performance during the COVID-19 pandemic — and he’s starting to look like a box-office bomb. We could call the movie “Total Recall 2.” According to a new poll from the University of California at Berkeley’s Institute of Governmental Studies, Californians are sick of Newsom and still afraid of COVID. So I guess that means they’re hating him from a distance of at least six feet. The survey found that fewer than half of California voters ...

Dixon Hill – “Holodeck Beats: Program 3” (Album)

Las Vegas producer Dixon Hill’s new instrumental album, ‘Holodeck Beats: Program 3,’ beautifully captures the feeling of isolation while also being a treasure trove of head-nodding beats. Hill’s humility as an artist is admirable, especially at a time when ego-tripping is at an all time high. But he’d probably be the first one to tell you otherwise, because he’s simply interested in creating and sharing music that he hopes his audience will connect with. It’s a mindset he’s had since he started...

"... he rants like a combination of Grandpa Simpson and Archie Bunker about anyone under age 40, but when it comes to anything I’m up to, or how he or I are feeling? Crickets. I’m actually keeping a list of things he’d rather do than, well, me. The list is pretty depressing. I am less desirable than playing Windows Solitaire or watching BBC detective shows and The Seventh Seal (I’m less desirable to my husband than an overwrought, depressing Swedish movie, FML)."  From "My Husband Won’t Have S...

Police response to Capitol mob ‘disheartening’ for communities of color in Southern California

A day after riotous supporters of President Donald Trump stormed the U.S. Capitol, shattering windows and forcing their way inside the building, local Black and Latino leaders and activists drew a stark contrast between the police response to the mostly White mob in Washington and the many Black Lives Matter protests led by people of color over the summer. Scenes from the Capitol Wednesday, Jan. 6, bore little resemblance to events that unfolded in San Bernardino in late May, said Rakayla Simpso...

Salvation Army’s bell ringers mostly silent because of coronavirus

Silent night? Try an entire silent season, as the coronavirus pandemic is upending an iconic holiday tradition in Southern California — the Salvation Army red kettle bell ringers. This month, with coronavirus re-surging, the Salvation Army scaled back a nearly 130-year-old program by shrinking the squad of men and women who ring bells in public to raise money for Christmas programs — money that buys toys for children, holiday meals for families, and other extra support for those in the most desp...

Sturgill Simpson, Jason Isbell Denounce CMAs For Excluding John Prine Tribute

The Country Music Association Awards were held last night and despite the CMAs insistence that there be “no drama,” there has been plenty of drama involving the in-person Nashville event, including multiple performers dropping out after contracting coronavirus. The latest comes courtesy of Sturgill Simpson and Jason Isbell, who have both criticized the awards show for not paying tribute to the late John Prine, who passed away following complications from COVID-19, and others during the ceremony....

The lawn is not in danger

I didn’t need to go as far as the suburbs to get this shot. Not by a long shot. Every now and then, one of the Ranters publishes a post on the benefits of having a lawn and strategies for responsible lawn maintenance. Far from objecting to these posts, I heartily agree with them. When free of needless herbicides and fertilizer and mowed at a reasonable height, lawns do provide rest for the eyes and recreational space for people and animals. I have no problem with them, though I do like to see...
