    Here at LAist, we're constantly being asked to look into a variety of unsolved mysteries plaguing Angelenos. We've solved the mystery of The Grove's eerie sentient parking sensors and informed LA citizens about the legality of parking next to a broken parking meter. And today, we're going to address the one mystery people continue to ask the powers that be here at LAist... Is it possible to still sneak into free movies at LA-based...

    Sometimes you can't keep a good "let's tear down this god forsaken local monolith" LAist post down -- as is evidenced by today's resurgence of Tear It Down: Hollywood/Highland Edition. Previously, LAist suggested we tear down the gaudy 8500 Melrose Avenue building and the Hollywood sign to no avail. Apparently, city council members and local demolition experts didn't hear our cries of dissent and, well, didn't really care. But we digress, moving on to...

    Pretend for a moment you're one of the world's most infamous supervillains. Then pretend for a moment that you turn States' evidence and enter the Supervillain relocation program where you and a slew of other baddies are stuck in a small town with no future escape in sight. Welcome to Infamy, Arizona -- a patrolled and protected community for reformed extranormal hostiles and the subject matter of the comic book series Living In Infamy....

    Here at LAist, we're all about making the rest of you famous. That's why, if you've ever had an idea that you thought would make a kick-ass book (but not really aware of how to go about it), the recent release Putting Your Passion Into Print might be helpful. Written by Arielle Eckstut (Pride & Promiscuity: The Lost Sex Scenes of Jane Austen) and David Henry Sterry (Chicken: The Self-Portrait of a Young Man...

    Thanks to all the coffee criminals in Los Angeles County, the Coffee Bean punch card is dead. We must salute a bunch of really ingenious individuals who had recently started the trend of selling actual Coffee Bean metallic punchers over the Internet, causing the coffee maven to notify their customers that starting October 15th, their punch cards will be nothing more than a holy piece of pink. That's right -- if you have ten,...

    Here at LAist, where the collective brain has all but squashed out our entire individuality (I am a real person, I am!), things like calculating tips and carrying the "1" end up challenging us more than we'd like. But more complicated than determining what 15% of that dinner bill should be, or if long division really is our strong point, is trying to decipher the science behind why taxi cabs charge what they do,...

    LAist loves to travel. That's why we think it's important that Angelenos gearing up to leave their beloved city behind should not only know the indepth, important details about our own airport here in the City of Angels, but airports that they might, quite possibly land at while winging their way across the country. The critics have spoken, the people have asked for it, and so LAist now gives you the researched, well-educated, fully...

    Just because a tree falls in the forest and nobody hears it doesn't mean it doesn't make a sound. Right? And here at LAist, we believe the same goes for Celebrity sightings. Just because you didn't see a Celebrity doing something, doesn't mean that they weren't doing such a thing in the first place. And so, in an effort to keep Los Angeles up to date on the things celebrities are doing without your...

    They are both entertaining. They are both dependent on lush visuals and advanced graphic technologies. They are both attended by throngs of dedicated and fervant followers. Yet one is good and one is a total letdown. Surprisingly, or not, the latest Star Wars movie Revenge of the Sith and the E3 Expo (Electronic Entertainment Expo) have most of the same audience. While one empire has inspired a world of fans and a world of...

    With tabloid journalism often going for the least common denominator and reguarly attempting to connect dots where dots aren't available to be connected -- it's amazing something like this hasn't happened already. Cue Shane Nickerson, a regular 'ol Los Angeles local who happens to be a Producer for an unnamed reality show starring an unnamed A-list actress. Seems that when Nickerson got up to answer the door on Mother's Day, a certain tabloid magazine...
