LA Plays Itself (reprise) @ Motion Picture Academy Nov 2

http://www.oscars.org/press/pressreleases/2005/05.10.13a.html "L.A. Plays Itself" is a brilliant and if somewhat meandering documentary that tracks the depiction of Los Angeles in film, and how L.A.'s film image in turn created the city. It's a must see. It's really long so carbo load in advance. In...

Report from Derby Developer Meeting 10-26

We had our first community / Derby meeting tonight, the Oct 26 meeting sponsored by the developer. I thought it was great. It was very well attended. We gave the developer as hard of a time as we could, including exposing that not one member of their team lives in Los Feliz, and people just ripped t...

Thumbs down on CSLLR

We had a very negative experience with this group years ago. We ordered tickets, leaving a credit card number on the phone, they never let us know we were "approved" (they had a complicated process for registering for the event), we didn't attend and they charged us anyway. A guy named Dave was runn...

Maybe the Coconut Grove wasn't fake and plastic enough.

I cannot add too much to this thread except the irony that two posts away from this one is an event taking place at the Grove. We lost the Coconut Grove to "The Grove" as a public space. What does that say about our culture and our city? I am ill from it. That's why, as I said in my posting about Jo...

I agree, ZZ, Johnies ruled.

The Johnies' re-opening was everything that is great about ModCom. It was like, "Okay, you don't want to live in a ModCom world, we're gonna make one ourselves." Everyone was one million percent great but I have to mention the name John Eng as Volunteer of the 21st Century.
