This Week's Most Commented & Recommended

Time is running out to keep LAist funded.
It's the FINAL DAY of our June Member Drive and we are behind on our goal to keep local news strong for the coming months. Your support today keeps our reporters ready to meet the needs of our city. Plus, your gift's impact will be twice as strong because it will be matched dollar for dollar!

When you read something you like on LAist, we love it when you hit the "recommend" button, and we love it even more if you put your two cents' worth in the comments. Getting a dialog going with our readers and making sure we're giving you content you can use are top priorities for us.

David Duchovny, Sex Addict. Aw Baby - Come Over Here. For anyone who's wondered "David Duchovny, why don't you love me?" well, he might have, were it just for the, um, lovin'. The Californication star seems to have the old art-becomes-life problem these days.
