I recently attended Celebrating Pride and Building Movements: An Evening Dedicated to LGBTI Rights in Uganda. Before I arrived, I had no impressions of what the night might hold, other than a discussion of the situation in Uganda.
Los Angeles's restaurants excite me more than those in New York -- or any other city in this country, for that matter.
The Los Angeles Film Fest is in full-swing this week, turning the little corner of L.A. Live around the Regal Cinemas into a mini-Sundance -- albeit without the snow.
There is no political correctness in my rant. Just facts. Without diversity, there is no hip-hop, even if you choose to call it that. Hip-hop is not a reality TV show. Hip-hop is not a pair of pants sagging. Hip-hop has founders, innovation, and purpose.
Lydia is planning a salsa party because she likes to "party and have fun" and believes that, as the self-appointed "Friend Whisperer," she can bring cast outcast Alexis to the event and unite everyone under the auspices of Latin rhythms and booze.
That is what the shooting at my school has done to me. It brought the random surge of violence that we as a country, as a world, and we as human beings are experiencing at this point in time, straight to my door and laid it at my fe...

Tourists who spend 250 bucks a pop for a pair of Prada sunglasses in the high-end retail sector of State Street, find themselves stepping over indigent elderly on their way to Starbucks.
Who says only cats have nine lives? Molly, a yellow Labrador Retriever who has lived through the worst, will tell you otherwise. Molly was...
I don't deny that we need a day to recognize our parents -- maybe even more than one. But in our modern society shouldn't we be able to celebrate a holiday that includes everyone. Families come in all shapes and sizes.
You know I don't think there was ever a thing that I said to [George] that ever worked perfectly. I asked him once that same question. I said, "Did I ever give you any advice that was worthwhile?" He thought about it for a minute or two and he said, "You told me never to mix grape with grain."
In "If You're Watching This, I'm Dead," written and performed by Lisa Cole, directed by Marcella Hawk, and staged at the Elephant Stage's Studio Theatre in conjunction with the Hollywood Fringe Festival, Cole makes a video testament for the people she's leaving behind.
In this day of Internet commerce and fast long distance travel, state by state gun laws make no sense. We need a nation wide, consistent set of laws that deny terrorists, criminals, and the mentally unstable easy access to guns.
If you have an old 401K just sitting with an old employer, you are probably missing out on some very valuable gains. AT the end of the day, it's all a matter of dollars and sense.
