Prism Comics has posted their "gay agenda," a listing of various LGBT related happenings and panels at con.

At the very least I' think I'll be at the LBGT geek year in review panel Thursday.

Last Remaining Seats

Some pics from seeing two shows last month, part of the Los Angeles Conservancy's Last Remaining Seats, a series where they show movies in various old theaters and movies palaces. Some that still operate as theaters. Others that no longer do and are normally closed to the public. 

We saw Wily Wonka and the Chocolate Factory at the Orpheum Theater and Raiders of the Lost Ark at the Theater at the Ace Hotel. 

I’ve been to the Orpheum before and it is still a beautiful theater. It’s been years since I’ve seen the movie and it is still a fun film. I’d forgotten, or perhaps had never noticed, that the bizarreness of Wonka is negated somewhat in that pretty much all the adults in the movie are totally bonkers (excepting Charlie’s mom who is just depressed). 

I’d also forgotten that the songs are a bit odd. Not merely the Ooompa Loompa’s songs, but the other numbers. Charlie’s mom sings a song that is essentially “Yes your life sucks Charlie,” and his Grand Pa sings of how he has a golden ticket (that actually belongs to Charlie). 

This was my first time seeing the Theater at the Ace Hotel (the former United Artists Theater). While it is a bit unassuming from the outside, it is spectacular inside. An amazing gothic overkill of details. It’s also been years since I’ve seen Raiders. 

 It’s a good movie and was very fun to see it on the big screen with an audience. My only real comment about the movie is the same one i’ve always had, which are the related questions “Just how long did Indy hang on to the outside of that submarine anyway? Did it never submerge? If it did how did he survive? If it didn’t how did he survive (the sun and lack of water and food)?”

Actually I do have another comment. That scene towards the beginning of the movie when Indy is teaching and all the girls in class are madly in love with him and then there’s that one lone boy who drops an apple off for teacher? Still makes me chuckle, and from the audience’s reaction, I’m not the only one ;-)

I saw the Dead West production of Pippin a few years ago. It was really good, very well done and I ended up liking it a lot. Quite a feat considering I normally hate Pippin.


Hmm. Considering I hate Spring Awakening as well maybe I should have given their version a try. :-)

Transparent Aluminum!


Aluminum oxynitride is more optically clear, lightweight and durable than traditional bulletproof glass.

Some people have an irrational fear of the idea of meatless meal, even more so if the meal is vegan instead of "merely" vegetarian. This is one of the spot to cure these people. The food is good and tastes great. There is a large selection of options and the staff are friendly and knowledgable. The seasonal specials are normally worth trying out. Things a priced a little on the high side, but that tends to be the case whenever a restaurant specializes in good, healthy, fresh food.

While they do show more mainstream movies occasionally, the heart and soul of the Laemmle chain are independent films. Often times this or another Laemmle location are the only places you can find something showing. This is a great location. In a fun neighborhood to spend time in before your movie or to hang out in to talk about what you have just seen. Compared to other movie chains the prices for tickets and food are reasonable.

Nucleus is one of my favorite galleries and it's a great store as well. The show's subjects range tend to touch on popular culture and can always be trusted to be interesting. There's also prints galore for sale, and t-shirts and gifts available in the front. Don't forget to check the gallery space upstairs as well. Photography is not only allowed, but encouraged as they understand the value of good social media 'buzz.'

A great juicery. The staff are knowledgable, friendly and helpful. The juices I've had have been very good. Healthy, full of flavor and very tasty. Whole a little pricey, the ingredients and friendly atmosphere here justify it.

The Tender Green chain is normally a safe bet for good food with many options to satisfy everyone from meat eaters to vegans. I love their steak and their salads tend to be very good. This location is in the middle of Pasadena's theater district and is very popular, so depending on the time of day (and if it is before or after a show), it can get crowded, though even when there are a lot of customers the line tends to move relatively fast. Because of the build up the neighborhood has been going through, parking, at least street parking, is not always easy anymore.

You may think you don't need a paper doll book of 80's female TV stars or a t-shirt with a day of the dead version of patsy cline, but you would be wrong. This is a great store filled with so many things that yell out "BUY ME!" As an added bonus, the La Luz De Jesus gallery is in the back of the store.
