Limp Bizkit rages during its headlining set at Musink

The most talked about and interesting act on the bill for the 12th Annual Musink Tattoo Convention & Music Festival, held at the OC Fair & Event Center in Costa Mesa March 8-10, was ’90s nu metal and rap rock band Limp Bizkit. It was like the name dropped from outer space since it really hit its peak in the late ’90s and early ’00s. For a generation of fans that grew up liking that style of music, possibly the most memorable and iconic Limp Bizkit moment comes from its performance at Woodstock ’...

How K-pop star Tiffany Young left Girls’ Generation to come back to LA

Tiffany Young sees “Lips On Lips,” her solo debut, as her life told as a fairy tale spun over five musical chapters. “Because fairy tales always have obstacles,” Young explains. “And things you have to go through to put up a good fight before you get to that fairy-tale ending.” At first blush, her story seems like a carefree journey with few challenges to overcome. The girl known as Stephanie Young Hwang while growing up in Diamond Bar moved to South Korea when she was 15, and two years later wa...

MoviePass closes up its Los Angeles office after firing its business development team

MoviePass' Los Angeles office closed down last week. The space housed the business development department of the movie-ticket subscription company, which was laid off in February, and the staff of Moviefone. The space wasn't ideal for staff. One source who worked there said the only available power sources were a few extension cords and "repeated requests for pens, post-its, or bottled water were rejected."   Last week, MoviePass’ Los Angeles office at the Pacific Design Center in West Hollyw...

Week 13: Selfies, Art and Natural Beauty of LA

Once again on our morning of departure from LA we did a quick about face and change of plans. We wanted to go to Death Valley, but after a few phone calls to reserve an RV campsite we realized it was not the best decision. Everything was booked out as it’s peak season now. Death Valley is not an ideal summer destination. We also learned there are a few road closures thanks to weather destruction. So there is a fair bit of work going on AND gold mining, which meant the chances of us getting accom...

31 Southern California cities ignore housing reporting rules, study finds

Thirty-one Southern California cities – from Huntington Beach to Hidden Hills and from Lancaster to Loma Linda – failed to meet a state requirement to report progress meeting housing goals each year, a new report says. Out of at least five annual progress reports required since 2013, these 30 cities provided none. According to the report, Southern California as a whole – excluding Los Angeles County – gets a grade of C when it comes to addressing the region’s homebuilding needs. The letter grade...

Media executive Ross Levinsohn speaks for the first time about a #MeToo exposé, says it 'weaponized' the movement against him

Former Los Angeles Times CEO and publisher Ross Levinsohn spoke for the first time about a 2018 NPR article that included reports of inappropriate workplace comments. In a Q&A with Business Insider, he denied having used a homophobic slur and said he didn't remember having said in a deposition that he'd made two separate comments at work about women. There have been, however, some inconsistencies between Levinsohn's version of events and those of his associates, and they did not have evidence ...

Here’s how presidential candidates (so far) want to help solve the housing crisis

In the race for the White House, housing seldom gets much attention — but that could be about to change. As California and other states face dramatically rising rents and home prices, three of the top Democratic contenders in 2020 — Sens. Kamala Harris, Cory Booker and Elizabeth Warren — have already introduced major proposals in the Senate that would reshape affordable housing in America. With California’s primary poised to play an unusually important role next year, and the state’s affordabili...

I Got A Facial With A Surgical Scalpel

What Is It Like Getting A Dermaplane Facial? With any facial, you have to trust the esthetician whose knuckles are kneading and massaging your cheekbones. But when it comes to a dermaplaning facial, that patient-provider trust is vital: You're literally letting someone touch the blade of a knife to your skin.For those who've maybe heard about the trendy exfoliating procedure, but are a little fuzzy on the specifics (like, what's the point, and why would you subject yourself to that?), the...
