  • Air Guitar Championship Semifinals @ The Troubadour
    The Southwest Semifinals of the US Air Guitar Championship were held last Saturday at the historic Troubadour Club in West Hollywood. The event determined who would compete as regional representatives at the 2014 National Finals in Kansas City on August 9th. The colorful contestants (many of whom opted for elaborate codpieces) were judged by comedians Kristen Schaal and the Sklar Brothers. The top score was awarded to crowd-surfing guitarist Kingslayer, the mother of a teenage son who also competed wearing little more than an American flag bathing suit. All photos by Gustavo Turner.

  • Nick Ut: The Shot of a Lifetime 2

    It was a lucky shot, some say of Nick Ut's famous Vietnam War photo The Terror of War, or Napalm Girl, as it is more commonly known. Less lucky, of course, was the little girl in the photo, Kim Phuc. She was running down the street, naked, after a napalm...
  • Zackey Force Funk Is Making Fascinating Electronic Music

    Zachary Hose was born and raised in southeast Tucson, Arizona, an area plagued by poverty, gangs and drug cartels. Tempted by addiction, in constant trouble with the law, he somehow persevered. Today he's better known as experimental electronic musician Zackey Force Funk. A month before the release of new album...
  • Great Food in Malibu (Yes, Malibu)

    It's a question for the ages: Why isn't there any good food in Malibu? The query is based on a generalization — certainly, there are some good things to eat in Malibu — but the pickings are notoriously slim. (VICE recently dubbed the place "a culinary wasteland.") For such a...
  • Sterling v. Sterling Court Battle Gets the Old Razzle-Dazzle 6

    Donald Sterling's sanity is not on trial. No, the trial, a dispute between real estate tycoon and Clippers owner Donald T. Sterling and his wife, Shelly, concerns itself with trusts and revocations, doctor-patient confidentiality and so on. Yet the substance of Sterling's curious mind hovers over the proceedings, his dark,...
  • Charlie Parker and Henry Rollins (Again): Readers Respond

    When Charlie Parker Dropped Trou Last week's cover story, "The Wildest Party in L.A. History," by Chris Walker, was a smash with readers. Scott Hajek summarizes the reaction: "Sex, drugs, art, fame, mystery and obscure L.A. history all rolled into one? Now that is what I want in a cover...
  • Anna Kendrick Had Her Heart Broken by a Hot Dog

    "I forget that people think that I'm the girl with a ponytail and a briefcase," says Anna Kendrick, perched on a couch in a T-shirt and jeans. Her career-launching role as a prim go-getter in Up in the Air is so far removed from her actual self that she's still...
  • Boyhood's Crazy Experiment: Shoot a Film Over 12 Years

    "It's the secret films you have to watch out for," Richard Linklater jokes about his new movie, Boyhood, a furtive experiment that he kept quiet for more than a decade. In 2002, he chose a first-grader named Eller Coltrane, the 6-year-old son of two Texas artists; cast Patricia Arquette and...
  • Armenian Power and Henry Rollins: Readers Write

    Hayley Fox's cover story about the FBI's takedown of Armenian Power was a big hit with readers ("The Unusual Suspects," July 4). Yupper writes, "THANK GOD. I was beginning to think even the cops were afraid of these losers. They speed around in their flashy cars, no respect for anyone,...

    Milky Way Malt at Milk

    Certainly more than the sum of its parts, the Milky Way Malt at Milk on Beverly Boulevard is a blend of house-made vanilla ice cream, malted milk and chocolate-caramel syrup, combined in such perfect proportion that they are altogether elevated to a kind of supernova flavor status.
