    Bruno Giovanni Quidaciolu Jr., better known as Bruno Kirby to those of us who loved him in City Slickers and When Harry Met Sally, passed away today in Los Angeles due to complications from Leukemia. He played the young Clemenza in Godfather II, and was also recently on HBOs "Entourage" playing a character modelled after Jeffrey Katzenberg. We'll miss you, baby fish mouth....

    It's on again, as it is every year. Hobbits, Jedis, Superheroes, Supervillains, and even more are now on display through Sunday at the annual Comic-Con International in San Diego. So far we've seen just about everything under the sun, and some things that you'd have trouble imagining unless you were on some very strong drugs. And we mean the psychedelic kind. However, the standout has been the SNAKES ON A PLANE exhibit. It's a...

    LAist set out on what was to be a simple mission yesterday, obtaining a pair of jeans. However, we made the mistake of trying to do that at The Grove, which is both a boon and a bane to the shopping wasteland of Los Angeles. Our first trek took us upstairs at Banana Republic, which had every size imaginable except ours. Bummer. So, it was back out into the oppressive heat, making us wonder...

    Is there anything better than free food? YES! And that's a free Slurpee, which technically doesn't count as food. Unless you pour it onto a hot dog or something. And actually, during the last few boiling hot days, that doesn't sound like a bad idea. Chili cheese dog with cherry Slurpee on top. Mmmm. So anyhow, in honor of today being 7-11, all 7-11 locations are giving out free Slurpees in 7.11 oz cups....

    If you're gonna see a movie in this town, there really is no better place to do that than at Mann's Chinese Theater. They've had a digital projection system for awhile now, the sound is great, and the experience is just incomparable. Now we know people will wave their Arclights and their The Bridges in our face, but to them we say, "Bite us." Last night we caught a sold out showing of SUPERMAN,...

    Last night we caught Eddie Izzard at the Coronet Theater, where he is appearing all week and trying out new material. While he claims to use no drugs, we want whatever pumps through his bloodstream in ours. The man of a thousand tangents took us through evolution (the original title of Darwin's book was "You're a Fucking Monkey"), bees and honey (we can't replicate his "worker bee song" here, but it's worth it), torture...

    Our semi-irregular feature focusing on the strange signs, billboards, placards, scrawlings, and advertisements that make up the landscape of our beautiful Los Angeles skyline. This billboard, located prominently near the Sunset & Vine intersection in Hollywood, has someone managed to stand the test of time, and has remained up for four months past the event it was promoting. Not only that, but it really makes us wish we had made it to that "one...

    Living in Southern California, the radio dial is fairly crammed with stations at every decimal point up and down the spectrum. Anyone who has ever tried to use one of those iPod FM transmitter devices can attest to that. Chances are you'll be competing with a station coming in loud and clear from Fresno, rendering your $39.95 gadget totally useless. Because we have to many radio stations, we also have hundreds of radio commericals....

    Al Cabino calls himself a "sneakerographer", and we can only imagine that he has a corner on that market. Al is mounting a campaign to have Nike actually produce and market the futuristic high-top sneakers that Michael J. Fox wore as Marty McFly in "Back to the Future II". Wow. At least the guy has a focus. After all, the fans behind "Office Space" were able to get Swingline to make a red stapler,...

    E3 has once again left the City of Angels, leaving in it's wake a trail of litter advertising the newest, hottest games, tons of Starbucks cups, the swag no one wanted, and booth babes sporting a bit more money in their wallets. Everyone that exhibited during the week of videogames is still probably recuperating, we can only imagine. Best thing overheard at E3 this year? "Man, this is where nerdy girls get laid." Our...
