    OOOOMPAH! - Re-creating the Old World

    Though it's supposed to conjure up the Bavarian Alps, the cluster of snow-topped minimountains at Old World Village's main entrance instead brings to mind a peak much smaller and closer to home: Disneyland's Matterhorn. In 1978, the same year the Ma...

    DIVE! - Re-creating the Cold War

    Lurking in the Port of Long Beach, half-submerged in what's either the shadow of the Queen Mary or water permanently dirtied by the downside of the bustling harbor, is a stark reminder of the last chapter of the Cold War. You remember the Cold War...

    Long Beach Queen - Re-created end of British Empire

    If you ever look at one of those cartoon maps of America, the kind that feature cute little icons for all the major cities, you will almost certainly find a doodle of the Queen Mary equidistant between the doodle of the Hollywood sign and the doodle...

    KNIGHTS BRIDGE - Re-creating Tudor England

    Joe Huszti--music professor and early-modern music zealot--is on a rehearsal stage in UC Irvine's sprawling theater compound, driving his singers nuts over the pronunciation of a single word in a madrigal, a 500-year-old form in which a love poem is...

    LONDON CALLING - Re-creating European cities

    The shops are tidy in a somehow traditional way, the walkways between the stores congested with street vendors, again in a way that bespeaks a respect for the order of heritage. No, you can't say nouveau riche much better than Newport Beach, yet as ...

    MORE DIRT, PLEASE - Re-creating Vietnam

    Those are dusty Santa Ana winds, not drenching typhoons, blowing past the rotund Happy Buddha and the gods of Happiness, Longevity and Prosperity. But the faces of the marble statues exude a certain serenity nonetheless. That's more than can be said...

    QUIET ON THE SET PIECE - Re-creating Independence Hall

    "So this is the amazing facsimile of the cradle of American liberty," I say softly to myself, waiting to feel all tingly and reverential as I stand in the Declaration Chamber of the Independence Hall replica across the street from Knott's Berry Farm...

    ALL IS DUST - Re-created Ghost Town

    A cold wind blew in from the direction of the setting sun as the man rode up to the town's outskirts. After stopping his horse, the man pulled his worn duster closer to his body and set his Stetson lower on his head. Then he looked up at the sign st...

    FRIEZE FRAME - Re-creating the Masters

    When people from outside Orange County find out that this is where you're from, they'll inevitably bring up the fact that Disneyland is all we've got going out here. They'll commonly observe that we were idiotic enough to name an airport after John ...

    ORALE! - Re-creating Zoot-Suit culture

    When you walk into El Pachuco, you half expect Edward James Olmos to slide out from behind the racks of zoot suits. He would, of course, be decked out in a black oversized and extremely wide-shouldered coat hanging down to his knees covering a red d...

    ALIEN ABDUCTIONS - Re-creating parodies of parodies

    It's midnight on Saturday in Long Beach, and a string of young people--cloaked in black and caked with makeup--stretches along the sidewalk, unfurling from the Art Theater box office until it just about reaches the end of your patience. The Rocky H...

    HERE ALREADY - Re-creating Southern California in Southern California

    CROONERS - Re-created mob dining

    We kill the lights and wait 10 minutes. Cars parked everywhere, but no outside response. We get out. Amble toward the door. Screeching tires from behind us. Whip around. Reach into breast pockets. It's just some pimple-faced kid using South Coast Pl...

    CITRUS GROOVE - Re-creating Old Orange County

    You pay for a couple of hours of parking in the farthest-flung lot at Irvine Valley College. That's probably a little more time than you'll need, but you've never done this before, and you can't be sure how long it's going to take. Anyway, it costs ...
