    Welcome news today for all you herbivore fans of the Los Angeles Dodgers. The sudden disappearance of the vegetarian Dodger dog looks to be short-lived. What, you ask? Seriously, for the past few years Dodger Stadium has been one of the few Major League ballparks with seriously top-notch soy dogs in house. The veggie dogs were only available at two specific stands (one in the reserved seats level, and one in the lower box...

    Last time Iran was in the World Cup, their appearance sparked pro-democracy riots in Tehran and a throng of protesters showed up at the Federal Building in Westwood (yes, we know it seems like that happens every week). This year, Iran not only made it to the World Cup, but their first game was against Mexico -- another country not unfamiliar with the soccer-sparked riot. In the end, Iran lost. By a lot. But...

    It's after Memorial Day. It's sunny. And living in Los Angeles finally pays off. While theatres in the rest of the country are showing HORRIFIC movies, mostly in sequel form. Those sweet, air-conditioned, stadium seats are focused directly on filth. Hundred-million dollar filth. But in the evenings of our movie-obsessed city, we can find the indy, artsy theatres and alternative venues (Hollywood Forever Cemetery, anyone?) that show something better. Scrape the gum off the...

    The New York Times TimesSelect service has proven — to the bookkeepers at 42nd Street, at least — that charging for Maureen Dowd and Thomas Friedman makes sense, and money. And for New York Times home delivery subscribers, the ability to access the archives has actually been a net gain. But maybe the best part of the NY Times' embrace of the walled garden approach (the one that AOL never quite got), and the...

    No Pulitzers. No Peabodys. No Duponts. But, despite Los Angeles' obsession with the Oscars and red carpet events infrequented by journalists, we do have one award that still carries some weight in the news business. Or, we did. The Loeb Awards are generally regarded as the most important business new prizes in the industry. They're handed out annually by the UCLA Anderson School of Management. (That's even though we have USC's Annenberg School, and...

    It's your Psycho Girlfriend. And she just won't get off your case this week. All you want to do over the next few days is head downtown and play some games. Is that too much to ask? GIVE ME SOME SPACE. Like, I mean, seriously have you seen Guitar Hero II coop mode? Let me rock out!!!! One way to escape the wrath? Take her to a nice art show on Saturday. Yeah, its...

    He may not be as widely known to current Angelenos as recently-departed Chris Penn, but Los Angeles lost one of the people that lifted the city beyond tinsel to the relative esteem it now holds as cultural mecca. Otis Chandler, former publisher of the Los Angeles Times, died at age 78 this morning. To truly appreciate Chandler's importance, reread The Powers That Be by David Halberstam. Not surprisingly, the LA Times was the first on...

    Even though Staples Center and Los Angeles Kings owner (and pious corporate titan) Phil Anschutz registered the domain name LosAngelesExaminer.com, he claims doesn't plan to use it or start a newspaper here in L.A., even though he's also trademarked the name. Seeing as how he's the largest single litterbug in our nation's capitol, its worthwhile to think about whether we really need more trash on the streets here. No one is saying the Los...

    Ever buy the New York Times in New York City? If you have, you know that the best section in the whole paper is actually the locals-only City Section. Its where the masters of 43rd Street put their youngest, hippest and usually most-talented writers. The City Section is the pitch perfect read for a New Yorker, because it practically defines the city. So what about for us in Los Angeles? Well, for one, we...

    So, cool, right, Jenny Lewis played (with the Watson Twins) in Silverlake adjacent on Thursday night. And not only can you get a little bit of Rilo Kiley at the Vista Theatre, but you can check out the show online at their web site. But wait! It's not their web site...its a damn myspace page. And Jenny Lewis DOES, in fact, have a web site. And its well designed. And well updated. And musically...
