What Does Transition Mean, Anyway?

What Does Transition Mean, Anyway?

This Wednesday night, May 26 at 7 p.m. see a special screening of the film "In Transition" and participate in a community discussion. The film "In Transition" compiles footage from Transition Initiatives around the world to explain what the Transition movement is all about. (watch for the map shot, Los Angeles is on there!) This international grassroots movement is about creating a better [...]

“Darn Yankees” is Damn Good

“Darn Yankees” is Damn Good

Since Sunday is your last chance to get to the Robert Frost Auditorium at 3 p.m. and catch the matinee of "Darn Yankees", I have to rave about it right now. The very first production from the CCMS theater company is so terrific, you will really walk out humming the tunes. The cast (credited as 50% completely new to theater) was so energetic, so ardent and so gosh darn cute, they were just [...]

Sex, Drugs, and Hasidic Jews – Film Review “Holy Rollers” by Orchid Cameron

Sex, Drugs, and Hasidic Jews – Film Review “Holy Rollers” by Orchid Cameron

Hey remember that time you were tricked into smuggling drugs by your Hasidic neighbor? That sucked. Inspired by actual events in the late nineties Holy Rollers tells the story of Hasidic Jews recruited as mules to smuggle ecstasy from Europe into the United States. Jesse Eisenberg (Zombieland, The Squid and the Whale) leads the cast as Sam Gold, a young Hasid from an Orthodox Brooklyn [...]

“It’s Up to You” by Frances Talbott-White

“It’s Up to You” by Frances Talbott-White

Prop 16 - Voting on How You Want to Vote on Electric Utilities Of the six statewide ballot measures on our June 8 ballot, Prop 16 is the likeliest to have a direct impact on the future of Culver City. I'm going to try to explain it as simply as possible and without repeating a lot of history from the 90s. Since 1925, the City of Culver City has had a franchise agreement with SCE (Southern [...]

“It’s Up to You” by Frances Talbott-White

“It’s Up to You” by Frances Talbott-White

Prop 17- Car Insurance on Your Ballot When presenting ballot measures to a live audience, I generally try to move through some kind of logical progression, or at least go from proposition to proposition in a way that makes sense to me. I figure that if it makes sense to me, I'm more likely to help voters understand it. In this election season, I find myself moving from Prop 13 to Prop 17. [...]

Strong Families and Orphan Diseases By Gabby Friedenthal

Strong Families and Orphan Diseases By Gabby Friedenthal

I loved Keely’s mom for years without even knowing her. Or more aptly, I loved the woman behind the email address keelyrocks@.....As I’d browse the El Marino yahoo group’s site for memos to room parents, or the latest discussion on healthy food, or when to turn in your orders for the gift wrapping drive (one of the top revenue makers of the whole year), I’d see [...]

Looking Forward- (Ted Travels) by Ted Bellamy

Looking Forward- (Ted Travels) by Ted Bellamy

As you may have noticed, I've been on vacation. To be specific, I spent a week in New Orleans, visiting family and listening to music. Ah, the romance. The liveried driver stowed our bags and whisked us off to the airport in silence. We climbed the ramp to the plane, with the propeller turning lazily beside us, and sank into the thick, spacious seats. Oooops. That was in 1961. Seems [...]

Just A Thought – Deeply, Truly Ambivalent

Just A Thought – Deeply, Truly Ambivalent

The thing about the car show is partly the timing. Here’s the worst ecological disaster in history spread through the Gulf Of Mexico, brought about by our need to feed the internal combustion addiction, and we’re getting exciting about a row of well-restored 57 Chevys. I am, in the ways of a true California Girl, as hooked into car culture as a low-rider on a Saturday night cruise. But the in [...]
