Odds & Ends
After a week of moving into a new house, travelling to the midwest and back and being without internet or TV, this LAist contributor is a little overwhelmed with everything he's missed and has to catch up on. We say goodbye to Phil and hello to Alex and just as soon as we can get our -ist shit together, we'll have a new contributor writing focusing on local politics as well. Now, here's what caught our eye today:
- Darth Landlord? Really? And do law offices regularly send out press releases to tout their own cases?
- Defamer caught this yesterday but we're just getting to it today: bid your way on stage at The Laugh Factory. It is for a good cause.
- As a fugitive child molester from our area was caught in Mexico, everyone seems to be getting behind Jessica's Law so that he won't get the chance to do his unspeakable deeds again.
- While we'll be busy doing work around the house this weekend, if you're brave enough to venture to City Walk you can go to Screamfest LA and see the premiere of Boo! (a direct to dvd movie with the most obvious horror movie name never used before) or you can either laugh your face off or get your groove on tomorrow night.
And, finally, a note on moving. Out of all the positives of moving from West Valley to East Valley, the big huge negative has been having to leave the beloved Time Warner Cable for Adelphia-Land. After giving the bankrupt channel and internet slinger three tries at getting it right, we've gone with Directv and DSL service and now all is right with the land. Adelphia gets the Gas Face!
