  • Los Angeles Ranks as a Cultural Wasteland?

    Los Angeles has a bad reputation when it comes high culture. Sure, we attract Hollywood hopefuls who put in more time at the gym than at the library. But we think our rep is mostly undeserved. We have world class dining, theater, art and music (Gustavo Dudamel!). Our own take on...

  • Suicide Ends Life of Child Abuser 22

    Late in 2013, I wrote an article outing Jon Carpenter, a prodigious filer of hundreds of lawsuits against small businesses in Los Angeles, as a convicted child molester who never did his prison time. In March, nearly four months after L.A. Weekly's story, the wheelchair-bound Carpenter traveled to Zurich, Switzerland...
  • Two Plays Involving Fried Meat (Sort of)

    Actor-playwright Keith Stevenson is one lucky fellow, having a top-flight ensemble to write comedies for; and having a director, Guillermo Cienfuegos, with such a sympathetic comprehension of the strands threaded through his humor; and, to top it all, being able to act in a pivotal role in his own plays...
  • Underground Museum's New Exhibit Crosses Centuries

    Compton-bred, hip-hop bard Kendrick Lamar is singing in his catchy, laid-back way: "All my life I want money and power / Respect my mind or die from lead shower." A lithe guy who's high on life, or maybe high on something else, is strutting along the L.A. River. He is...
  • Startup Dudes in the News: Readers Write

    Angel of Fortune Gene Maddaus' profile of Silicon Beach investor Paige Craig had readers talking last week ("L.A. Angel," Aug. 15). Many were not impressed by Craig. Writes JoeLeisure, "Gordon Gekko 2.0. Man, that show Silicon Valley is so spot-on. It lampoons these greedy fucks (sorry, 'angels') perfectly. 'I'll only...
  • Angel Investor Paige Craig Sifts Through Silicon Beach Hype 18

    At a party at the True offices on Wilshire, three dudes have just finished pitching an app. They look like design students, with black vests and matching haircuts. One of them boasts that the founder had a chance to be the sixth employee at Instagram. But when the founder starts...
  • Communists Invade Silver Lake, Occupy Neutra House

    The little girl who appears to live at 2300 Silver Lake Blvd. has been playing cowboys and Indians. She's set up an all-out, hand-to-hand battle on the living room floor. Little figurines face each other. Some stereotypically shirtless Native Americans crawl along the carpet. A cowboy stands watching from the...
  • Neil LaBute Plays Take Over L.A.

    The coldblooded rogues' gallery of antiheroes that inhabits playwright Neil LaBute's universe demands a new word to adequately describe it: La•Bu•tean (lah-byoo'-tyen): adj., of, pertaining to or suggestive of the perfidious cruelty, moral cowardice and emotional retrogression displayed by otherwise average guys, especially when goaded by the manipulative camaraderie of...
  • Dissing Las Vegas? Readers Respond

    Viva Las Vegas? Henry Rollins' column once again filled our mailbag this week — with his suggestion that Las Vegas is out of ideas ruffling some readers' feathers ("Fake City," Aug. 8, 2014). Stephanie Forte writes, "If you were to visit my home in Las Vegas and peek inside my...

    Best Porchetta

    La Bottega Marino

    In this era of pig fetishization, the rustic Italian dish of porchetta — long-roasted pork, heavily laced with fennel and garlic, a carapace of burnished, crispy skin — is uber-trendy, on the menus of half the gastropubs in town.
