The day Harry Culver spotted Thomas Ince filming on Ballona Creek, the destiny of his nascent city was transformed. Culver’s silver tongue and available land convinced Ince to move his studio from Pacific Palisades to brand new City of Culver City, and that studio, much changed but on the same land, is still pouring out entertainment a century later.

Just a Thought – Basket Case

Just a Thought – Basket Case

When I heard that crackling sound, I did not have to wonder what it was; my picnic basket had broken. Considering that it's older than my children, and has had a life far more adventuresome and active than most picnic baskets, it was time. Of course, there's been all these deaths, and the past seems to be ending in some definitive ways. It attended more than fifteen years of summer concerts [...]
