    After all the hubbub about a little porn in the backyard on Easter Sunday, will there be any outrage over "reality porn" in the sex shop? We won't link to Midnight Prowl (it's awfully NSFW) but Fleshbot (pretty NSFW in it's own right) points us towards it and notes that by the looks of things in the trailers and photos, this pornographic romp through some of LA's many adult video and toy shops seems...

    Apartment Therapy helped solve a personal 2 year mystery for us today. We knew we recognized the cover of LA-based DJ & Producer Greyboy's 2004 release Soul Mosaic from somewhere but, for the life of us, couldn't place it. One random ebay auction later and now we know that it was the cover of a classic Sunset Do-It-Yourself book. Why we couldn't place that is anyone's guess. The auction is still super cheap so...

    Last night's game was so entertaining, we're almost not upset that the Red & Blue lost. 130-123?! Is this 2006 or 1986? The Steve Nash/Sam Cassell battle is going to be a great one and the flashes of brilliance that Shaun Livingston shows on the court has us extremely hopeful for the future. Here's what's being talked about in Clipper Nation: The Mighty MJD:The Suns took Game One from the Clippers last night, despite...

    It is Asian-Pacific American Heritage Month. California has the largest community of Asian Americans in the country and we're having the largest and most rapid growth of that population. We have it on good authority that these folks, at least those with Japanese roots, want to rock. The Asian Pacific Film Fest is going on right now and Wednesday night they are showing Linda Linda Linda, the tale of an all-female high school punk...

    For this Laist contributor, the love for The Brand New Heavies began with a little Heavy Rhyme Experience. Before LL Cool J went unplugged and before The Roots became the only contemporary Black (hip-hop, r&b, pop or rock) band with national acclaim and radio airplay in America, there was this eclectic group of British cats getting supremely funky underneath my favorite rap group in high school, The Pharcyde. From "Soul Flower" 14 years ago...

    So when myspace and buzznet (and youtube and tagworld and..) run into each other on the mean streets of West Los Angeles, do you think gang wars break out Ron Burgundy style? We're pretty sure that getting compared to the Klan wasn't on the to-do list for The Minuteman Project's caravan. Fly out of Burbank, park in Van Nuys? blogging.la contributor, flickr fanatic and anti-minutemen commenter, Hexod.us is getting married to the lovely Makster...

    We're so happy that AKrylik and PolyCotN have tagged (wrapped? knitta-ed?) an unsuspecting antenna in Hollywood so that we could lay praise on the ladies and name check their website: knitta please (for which this LAist contributor would have a special affinity for, obvs). The crew of Houston artists are ladies armed with needles and yarn and a mission of beautying up the world with their public displays of cloth art. We're madly in...
