    'Life Itself': Ebert autobiography a charming remembrance
    In his easygoing, candid and altogether charming autobiography, or, as he calls it, "Life Itself: A Memoir," Roger Ebert fails to mention me: The nights he and I had many drinks on the porch of his house on Dickens Street and elsewhere, the favorable in-...

    Lucha VaVoom and Cirque Berzerk are L.A.'s theater of the odd

  • Found objects: Going gaga over Jason Mecier's 'junky' celebrity portraiture

     
    The intricately rendered celebrity portraits constructed by San Francisco-based artist Jason Mecier intend not merely to capture the look of his subjects, but their true essence. He often achieves this by using items once owned by them in his mosaics. But...
  • Lana Clarkson's fade to black

    You have to wonder about Lana Clarkson. Yes, "Lana Clarkson" was her real name; she wasn't Frances Gumm or Norma Jeane Baker. And Lana was born right here in Southern California, not eastern Tennessee or northern Minnesota. So you have to wonder why &#...
