LAist relies on your reader support.
Your tax-deductible gift today powers our reporters and keeps us independent. We rely on you, our reader, not paywalls to stay funded because we believe important news and information should be freely accessible to all.

In a week when the governor wasn't running for re-election but lost big anyway and Jesus is Magic won the hearts and minds of our readers becoming our biggest giveaway yet (there were well over a hundred entrants! We love that), we welcomed a couple new contributors, gave a shout out to local digital photographers and started working on a new contest/contributor search that we hope to announce early next week (hint: if you like talking to people about LA and know some interesting folks, you're going to want to pay attention).

Here is the week that was:

- New sports writer Emmanuel Uche came on the scene and immediately ruffled some feathers.
- Dean Koontz - Ignore the Burt Reynolds 'stache and try to figure out what's up with his wack racially insensitive anecdote.
- What Death Cab song reference should we use for our review of their Wiltern show?
- We didn't think Ryan Seacrest could get any cornier but, oh yes, he can.
- We interviewed the Sklar Brothers and the band Metric. Metric also got play in Austin and SF this week. Somebody has a great publicist.
- We ate Ethiopian and it was good. We danced down to Cha Cha Cha and the foodies got restless.
