    Buzzing from the giddy style and sheer joyous sensations initiated by the lovely film The Incredibles, which opened this weekend, we exited the Avco screening room 4 feeling a bit at ease from the political events of the week. Good old escapism has its place in a difficult world. Adults and children had packed the theater for this Saturday night show. There was applause and our senses seemed collectively tickled by the mellow palate,...

    Drive. Damn it people, take a drive. Succumb to the privileges of western expansion. Get all Bush-like and blow some money on gas and drive around the city this weekend. Some call it a Nietzschean undertaking. LAist calls it coping. Read. There's some good gay Truman Capote anecdotes over at The Elegant Variation this morning. Perhaps that'll inspire some soul-searching. If that fails, you can read the Da Vinci Code again. Sleep. And realize...

    And so you drink because that's something you can do that most of America seems to agree with. Find solace in the fact that "national identity" and patriotic kinship are the sentiments of philistines. In the words of Morrissey, "What difference does it make?"

    LAist talked with Ezra Klein of the political blog pandagon.net this weekend. Ezra's been engaged and blogging this election for over a year and a half. His site, which he co-blogs along with Jesse Taylor, boasts around 25,000 hits a day. Needless to say, his voice gets heard (or his words get read). He recently transferred to UCLA from UC Santa Cruz and has much to say about politics, Los Angeles and everything in...

    Emerging from the MOCA store on upper Grand Street in Downtown this Sunday, still buzzing from the miraculous and inspiring Rodney Graham Retrospective at the Geffen Contemporary on Central Avenue, total giddy confusion ensued. The Graham exhibit, which grinningly forces viewers to see differently, has a central motif consisting of various forms of loops (that and trees). From video to slides to records playing songs over and over. We'll stop here at attempting to...
