Dahl-ing  »  A Life in the Day
Imagine that...four consective posts. Something must be wrong with me....Last night we dashed to downtown Los Angeles, making surprisingly good time -- during rush hour, even -- to the Music Center. A few weeks ago, Caesar received an email from the Center Theatre Group for a special event related tothe upcoming production of Matilda. Free tickets to a Q&A with Tim Minchin, the composer/lyricist for the show. So of course we had to be there...along with hordes of children.Luckily, it was an evening well spent. We enjoyed a few so gs from the musical, performed by one of the ...

Now There Are 32! Wyoming Becomes Marriage Equality State  »  The Mad Professah Lectures
Just a few days after Arizona became the 31st state with marriage equality, another red state has joined the throng of marriage equality states today when Wyoming abandoned its fruitless legal battle in light of the U.S. Supreme Court's October 6 decision to not hear an appeal of two appellate circuits (the 4th and the 10th)  rulings that the federal constitution requires marriage equality.What this means is that in 32 states (see map), same-sex couples can get married while there are three more states (Kansas, Montana and South Carolina) where federal appellate court ...

Gwen Stefani is back with “Baby Don’t Lie”  »  popbytes
I’ve been patiently waiting for Gwen Stefani to grace us with new solo material ever since the release of The Sweet Escape, back in 2006 … which doesn’t seem all that long ago but it actually has been eight long years! Thankfully, No Doubt‘s (totally stellar) 2012 release, Push and Shove, helped tide me over for a bit. Yet once I heard Gwen was joining The Voice as judge, I knew it would be the perfect time to plot her much needed return to the music scene. Lo and behold, ...

Best Middle-Of-The-Road Video Of Burning Man 2014  »  Ron's Log
It doesn't sound like the greatest compliment, but it's intended that way. The best middle-of-the-road video should certainly be clear and watchable, but not professional quality; and it ought to show the 67,500 hoi polloi Burners who are not necessarily the richest or most beautiful; and it should have music that at least doesn't repel people; and it ought to look like the real burn as Burners see and experience it. Nothing too flashy, but fun. Keep an eye out for the nice man wearing a pink teddy bear as a sort of codpiece (okay, maybe it's a sort of ...

Late To The Party Again  »  Ron's Log
President Obama now thinks bans on same-sex marriage are unconstitutional, thereby aligning himself with roughly 60% of the American population. Personally, my opinion as to whether I should send him a thank-you postcard is evolving. Get back to me in another four years or so. ...

Returning To The Big Screen!  »  Ron's Log
The Greatest Science Fiction Film Of All Time: 2001: A Space Odyssey has been digitally remastered and will open November 28 in the UK at a British Film Institute film festival. Go back and watch the original 1977 version (or whatever version of the original you can find) of Star Wars. If you were around in 1977, you will recall that its special effects blew us away. Now they look cheezily obvious. Then go watch 2001 which was made before most of you were born: 1969! It still works. It still takes your breath away when it jumps ...

GoPro Selfie Mounts  »  Ron's Log
Of course, they can be used for more than selfies, but if you're going to spend $55 on an upgraded stick, then you are planning to use it for selfies. I might prefer something cheaper, but these GoPole products have some extras that might make them worthwhile for you. Remember that guy who went down in the sort of "easy" plane "crash" in shallow waters not far from the beach on a Hawaiian island? Did you marvel (as did I) that he never dropped his GoPro during the crash or while swimming around waiting for a rescue? He was ...

Measures HH and II  »  Ron's Log
I've heard a few opinions offered about Measures HH and II (the proposed marijuana taxes for Desert Hot Springs) that suggest the speakers are blurring the issues around medical marijuana and these taxes. The Desert Sun found an example of that muddled thinking (Desert Sun is good at that one little thing). Measures HH and II are NOT about a lot of things.
  • They are NOT a vote on legalization of recreational marijuana
  • They are NOT a vote on whether medical marijuana should be legal (it already is)
  • They are NOT a vote on whether people in Desert Hot Springs

Joshua Tree National Park Fees  »  Ron's Log
The National Park will hold a town hall meeting on November 6, 2014 to discuss possible fee increases in 2015. The town hall meeting will take place at Copper Mountain College, Bell Center, from 7:00 to 9:00 pm on Thursday, November 6, 2014. The Park Service sent out this press release that overwhelmed the intellectual capacities of a couple of media. It includes an HTML table and some people in the press don't know that you can't just copy a table from your screen and have it magically work without some tinkering. Instead of spending all morning tinkering, ...

The Comeback: Valerie Cherish finally gets another take!  »  popbytes
HBO‘s The Comeback (with the one and only Valerie Cherish–played to sheer perfection by Lisa Kudrow) was one of those shows from the early oughts that was so on-the-nose about everything that was would eventually come, television wise, that it completely flew over everyone’s heads–straight into the skies of cancelled cult classics. Except–as was the case for Arrested Development–the benevolent rulers over cable television have finally seen the light–bringing our beloved Valerie back to us for six brand-new episodes kicking off on November 9th … she is finally getting another (and ...

Slitherin'  »  A Life in the Day
Walking along the Upper Newport Bay during my lunch breaks allows me a brief respite from the office. Bird calls replace phone calls. The glare of the computer screen changes to the Sun reflecting off the bay. I lose myself in the walk...until I run into something like this: a small California King Snake blocking my path. At first, I thought it was dead, lying so still. Then the head moved, and I quickly snapped a pic and scurried on my way. ...

PICS & VIDS: Lana Del Rey @ Hollywood Forever Cemetery  »  popbytes
Last night, Lana Del Rey held court at the second of two instantly sold out surprise shows at Hollywood Forever Cemetery, which was absolutely amazing on every level. I saw Lana live at her debut Los Angeles show at the Troubadour in December 2011, which was decent yet nearly three years later, she has seriously sharpened her live performances–way better than the second time I saw Lana at the El Rey Theatre in June of 2012. I was pleasantly surprised by how great her voice sounded while being way more confident ...

$500  »  Ron's Log
If you follow Apple announcements then you've heard the brouhaha about the iMac with 5K Retina display (5K, 5K!, which is one more K than 4, starts at $2,500) and the iPad Air 2 (thinner, lighter, more powerful, starts at $500). But there never is any brouhaha about my favorite compromise that will put a real Mac on your desk for as little as $500: the Mac mini. This is what I have, but my model is a year old. It's not as powerful as an iMac. Processor speeds:iMac1.4 GHz2.7GHz2.9GHz3.2GHz3.4GHz3.5GHz4.0GHzMac mini1.4GHz2.6GHz2.8GHz  Graphics:iMacIntel HD Graphics 5000Intel Iris Pro GraphicsNVIDIA ...

The Playa Provides  »  Ron's Log
Back in the late 1980s in Boston I had a good friend Jeff. Nothing romantic, just a real good friend. About 1991 he left New England, moving to Atlanta, hoping to find less racism. He successfully achieved that goal. If any reader suffers under the illusion that you couldn't possibly find rampant racism in New England, suffer no more. After his move, we drifted apart and foolishly completely lost track of each other, not due to any fight or disagreement; we were just younger and stupider. He's ten years younger than me, so the younger was mostly him and the ...

Giveaway: BROODS’ debut album ‘Evergreen’  »  popbytes
Last Monday (10/13) I was able to catch New Zealand’s brother and sister duo, BROODS aka Caleb and Georgia Nott, at their debut full-length album release party held at Los Angeles’ El Rey Theatre. This was the second time I had seen them live (I caught them a few months ago at The Echo), and once again they totally kicked ass. Georgia has an incredible voice and Caleb is seriously the dreamiest guy ever. If you aren’t familiar with BROODS, you’re totally missing out, their album Evergreen (available now) is fantastic and ...
