Just a Thought – Air Fair and the Plane Truth

Just a Thought – Air Fair and the Plane Truth

While it's traditional at Fiesta La Ballona to complain about the heat, this year there was a situation that garnered even more comments; the plane flying the Geico banner. It seemed to be constant, it seemed to be flying much lower than the legal limit of 500 feet, and it seemed to annoy the living daylights out of everyone. The plane over the park got everyone's immediate attention, but there [...]

Just a Thought – Going Dark

Just a Thought – Going Dark

I had called the theater to see if I could still get tickets for a date towards the end of the run. But the voice on the phone said, no, we close the week before that. "We'll be dark." I had to smile to myself - aaah, theater jargon, I've missed you - but after being disappointed about the ticket, I got to consider the phrase. Going dark - nothing on stage, the previous production over, the [...]

Just a Thought – Vote With Your Wallet

Just a Thought – Vote With Your Wallet

The long time Culver City landmark Tito's Tacos has been caught in a sudden gust of bad publicity over their antipathy towards CicLAvia, the big bike event this Sunday putting cars off the streets so bikes can ride free. While the controversy is only in regard to the owner's perspective that customers in come cars and a lack of cars will lead to a lack of customers, there's another more crucial [...]

Mind the Numbers (and TCB)

Mind the Numbers (and TCB)

Hello Readers! While Culver City Crossroads is always pleased to have more readers (new readers and long time readers) we thought it important to take a moment ask you to mind the numbers, and take care of business. Mind the Numbers - We often get comments on posts that are several years old, sometimes without folks realizing that this is not new news.( In fact, one of our most active threads [...]

Just a Thought – Billboards Are a Big, Bad Blight (Click Here and Say No Thanks)

Just a Thought  – Billboards Are a Big, Bad Blight (Click Here and Say No Thanks)

The Culver City City Council Agenda for tonight includes the "Hospitality District" that has the potential to pollute the airspace in  Culver City with one of the most toxic things our culture produces - advertising. Action Item A-2, (1) Receive a Presentation and Discuss the Proposed Vision for a “Hospitality & Entertainment District Specific Plan” Affecting Commercial Frontage [...]

Just a Thought – Earth Day

Just a Thought – Earth Day

We can trace Earth Day back to Rachel Carson. Every now and then when I think that being a writer isn't much, I'm reminded of someone who truly changed the world by publishing a book. When I first heard the title "Silent Spring" I thought it was a novel; I imagined the title to be a metaphor - a clear rush of water running without a sound, as I had seen happen after an East Coast summer with [...]

Just a Thought – Visioning a Billboard District

Just a Thought – Visioning a Billboard District

It's a great moment when I learn something from my children, but sometimes seeing what they see is so daunting it can feel overwhelming. The City has announced an evening of 'Visioning a Hospitality and Entertainment District' tonight at 6 pm at the Vets Building. This will be a presentation from PlaceWorks, a company representing other corporate interests, who are looking to create a district [...]

Just a Thought – The Upward Spiral

Just a Thought – The Upward Spiral

It's a very good feeling when people who are big in your business affirm that your philosophy is the way to go. Focusing on what's good - is good. While I don't agree with Ariana Huffington's business strategy, it's incontestable that she has presence. She sent out a memo last month that at the HuffPost "... we will continue to cover the stories of what's not working—political dysfunction, [...]

Just a Thought – Talking About Rape

Just a Thought – Talking About Rape

After the story of the 2013 rape on the high school campus came out yesterday, it’s been everywhere. While this is bad news, this is good news. Rape has been all over the news for much of last year – Woody Allen accused of raping his stepdaughter Dylan Farrow, the charges against Bill Cosby regarding decades of drugging women and then raping them, even the Rolling Stone’s story of campus [...]

Just a Thought – Resolution Free

Just a Thought – Resolution Free

The tradition of New Year's resolutions feels as if it's bound together with the American ideal of self-improvement. A new calendar can be the beginning of some great new stuff, but it seems as if our culture puts it into a frame of punishment. How to make things better?  First, get angry with yourself about everything you like but somehow feel that you shouldn't; smoking, drinking, [...]
