Hurley artist Jason Maloney studied illustration and painting in college, but he believes his career had already started early in high school, when seniors would approach the then-freshman to make fliers for their keggers. "Of course, I wanted to get fucked up with them, so I did all these like ... More >>
According to his myspace page, new Sublime singer/guitarist Rome is from Orange County. I've been trying to track him down for a story and have got nothing. I sent a message to said myspace page and haven't heard back, so now I'm taking it to the streets (so to speak) and asking for the public's ... More >>

This week's episode of Newport Harbor opens with Chase deciding that he likes Taylor and not Allie. This is problematic because he took Allie to prom and kicked Taylor out of the after-party for cutting off his groove sauce or soiling his game, if you will. But, as it turns out, this lady switch is ... More >>
We're not supposed to like The Orange County Register, but we can't help but cringe after reading that the Reg is shrinking news staff yet again. The Reg (and the Los Angeles Times, for that matter) is atrophying before our hands—and that's not good for you and I.
