    I know last week I promised a review of the Year Of No Light show in Glendale (at The Complex) but – much like the Frost/Hecker show at Los Globos two days prior – the band elected to play in almost complete darkness. Which meant I couldn’t get many photos. As I don’t know the group’s oeuvre all that well, posting three foggy/dark […]

    • All is Lost!? Oh I don’t think so! A man reported survived being lost at sea for SIXTEEN MONTHS before he washed up recently on an atoll on the Pacific somewhere.

For example, io9 published an article this week called “11 Insane Things You Didn’t Know About Santa Claus.” And, true to the title of the […]

    In a brilliant article called “Imagine America Without Los Angeles,” one leading earthquake expert says that when the “big one” hits (no richter scale measurements provided) the city will be decimated. Because the Internet and water pipes and fiber optics. It’s been a long time since we’ve had a big scare article about earthquakes in Southern California, so it’s only fitting that someone try […]
