    Gil, Drop the Bill

    State Senator Dick Ackerman is as conservative as they come, and must no doubt be thrilled that ICE raids in OC are now as common as sunny days. But his thinking on a proposal by Los Angeles-area State Senator Gil Cedillo to require that California s...

    LAFF 2007: Cool Cats and Bad Kitties

    LAFF 2007: Lost Girls and Mighty Black Men

    One of the ideas the festival is heavily pushing this year is that for every movie you attend that you planned on seeing, you should go to another one you don't know anything about, or might not be inclined to go to normally. I tend to do this some...

    LAFF 2007: Buscemi and Amenities

    Kicked out: Notes from the Police show

    It's tough being a non-pro photographer at a major concert. The folks from the AP and Panic Channel are a clannish bunch, united by their ber-long lenses and jargon-heavy trade talk. Standing there with your starter digital SLR can feel like droppin...
