Buddy: The Buddy Holly Story

In the past decade, or so, there's been a relative dearth of good biopics about musicians. It used to be that playing a legendary artist in a movie usually resulted in acclaim, but that well has run dry. One might be able to trace this fading genre back to Walk

Exuberant noise

As I was growing up, roller rinks represented ticking time bombs of messy emotional development. Birthday parties, graduation parties, post-soccer pizza parties - any reason to assemble a jumbled group of children would somehow coincide with a trip to a roller rink, and thus result in hormonally tormented proto-humans walking

History in an old inn

It's no surprise that the Lewis Army Museum comes with almost 10 decades of history behind it. Built in 1919, the edifice takes the shape of a Swiss Chalet-style structure; it remains the last building from a recreational area called Greene Park called the Red Shield Inn. When World War I ended,

Preparing for travel to Asia

Traveling to another country - or continent - can be exciting. The chance to experience new cultural, custom, and cuisine-related differences provides the foundation for cherished life moments that will be remembered for years to come.

Some days it is just plain convenient to grab some fast food when you don't feel like cooking or just don't have the time. But fast food doesn't always have to mean greasy, calorie-packed foods that leave you feeling bloated. There are several local establishments that offer a variety of

Beauty comes from within. At Olympus Spa, a family-owned business dedicated by a husband to his wife as a gift of honoring women, the attitude is that an individual's true beauty can only be achieved when one feels healthy. In other words, this spa pampers women's minds, bodies and spirits. "We offer women

If you have a question about wine, chances are Justin Wilkes can answer it. Which wine pairs well with paella (or pad Thai, or pizza)? Could you recommend a bold red for a casual evening at home? A Champagne for a special occasion? Could it be organic? Wilkes runs The Wine Loft in downtown

Sometimes, the wounds of war are obvious. Missing limbs, broken bones, facial scars can be hard to miss. But all too often, the wounds of war can be hidden scars left on a warrior's soul, invisible to those around them. These injuries can be nearly as devastating and even more

Lots of places could technically be in the running for the "best place to meet someone". Prisons, public transportation, a dark alley - these are all places where you're likely to meet someone, just not necessarily someone you'd like to meet.

When I was a boy in Los Angeles, I enjoyed the luxury of taking delicious, homemade Mexican dinners for granted. My father is Mexican-American, so my childhood notion of comfort food was tamales and enchiladas with fresh salsa verde at my auntie Carol, Josie or Lily's house. While theirs may
