Dear ladies and gentlemen,
I just can't wait to get out on the road again. I grew up on the road, traveling with different musical theater companies, and since then I've been far too stationary than I wish to be...even though LA is my happy home...

In his own words, Kurt Halsey's work is "Shy and quiet, yet expressive and charming, my paintings use a sweetness and an innocence to tell the stories of heartache, love, sorrow, regret, confusion, and fear that each of us realistically feels in certain situations. The joy of success and the worry of failing, the humor, quirks, and frustrations of day to day interactions within relationships, and the endless yearning for a story book love are… Continue
The "Harvest Green Project" by Romses Architects was a winning entry in Vancouver's "2030 Challenge". The goal of the competition was "to address climate change plans and to guide greener and denser development, reducing carbon emissions for the future."
The concept is based on vertical farming of vegetables, herbs, fruits, fish, egg laying chickens, and…
I have friends that won't eat pork because of fear that has been espoused and spread by the media. As it turns out, the H1N1 flu virus is no more virulent or dangerous than the common flu virus. I remember that SARS and the avian flu were supposed to wipe us out. It looks like we're still here. And I still love eating bacon.

"McDonald's has recently launched a new interactive sign where passers-by can interact with images displayed on McDonald's giant LED screen, and visitors can take an interactive role at one of London's most photographed locations."
McDonald's has seemed to pick up on the innate human nature to take "mime" photos (I mean, how many people can resist the urge to take a picture "holding up" the Leaning Tower of Pisa?) Cute idea, I think.
While some people walk through life and others run, there's one man named Ayo Umali who likes to float. Unlike a jump, a float brings with it a lightness of being, a sense of whimsy and wonder. In his floating project,… Continue

This is a stunning video of a 600 foot long ship moving through the Houston Ship Channel at night. It was made by Louis Vest ("OneEighteen" on Flikr here). Here's his description "... 2000 still images taken by using a Nikon D700 in the "interval timer" mode. The camera was fastened to an outside rail and set to take a photo every six seconds. Quicktime then assembled the photos into a .mov file that plays back at… Continue

Love A.O.C., Lucques, and the Hungry Cat? Then you must be as excited as I was to hear about a new bistro from the same team. Tavern promises mouthwatering French-/Mediterranean-influenced fare like "the devils chicken with mustard breadcrumbs," "wild mushroom ragout with farro and walnuts," "slow roasted pork shoulder with red cabbage."
Dine in the skylight-drenched, olive-treed back patio, a casual lounge with a massive, studded… Continue
It ain't over yet. Stars at Monday night's annual Costume Institute Gala at the Metropolitan Museum in New York City sported a few, um, unconventional looks. Apparently, someone forgot to tell Roxanne that she don't have to turn on the red light.
We call this one: "The Bunny Ranch Madam .. and Her Bunnies"
