How Chlorine Damages Your Hair

How Chlorine Damages Your Hair

Caring for your hair means knowing how different chemicals, products, and environment factors affect it. In the summertime, and in some climates all year, one of the most common hair damaging chemicals we come in contact with is chlorine. If you spend a lot of time at the pool, you’re surely no stranger to the havoc chlorine wreaks on your hair.

Understanding how chlorine does its dirty work on your tresses is the…

Curmudgeon Corner -Holiday Season

For December 14, 2014

Hey, that time of year is here again.  A time of year when we put Ferguson, EITs, and choke holds aside and extend goodwill (goodwill: a kind, helpful, or friendly feeling or attitude.) to everyone.   Yep, I’m talking about the Christmas Season.  Oops, I mean the Holiday Season.  By saying “Holiday Season” I’m showing goodwill towards everyone.  It’s politically correct to say “Holiday Season” and we all know how politically correct our political leaders…

Gallery Pick of the Week: Soey Milk at CHG Circa Gallery in Culver City

Posted by Scupine on December 12, 2014 at 6:30am 0 Comments

Soey Milk's new show, "Sinvaro," opens this Saturday night, December 13, at CHG Circa. An artist's reception -- always free, open to the public, and lots of fun -- will be held on Saturday from 7:00 to 10:00 p.m. Says the gallery about the show and Milk's work: 

SINAVRO: a pure Korean word translated loosely to mean, “ To progress slowly, almost imperceptibly.” Soey Milk reveals the delicacy of growth in her new solo exhibition. In a presentation rife with contradictions, Soey exposes what it is to be human – for her – for now. The artist humbly admits to a gradual evolution, ignited by her Korean/American cultural dichotomy, but she invites the viewer to walk with her to discover the turbulence barely contained by the serene guardians in her works.



Where Am I in Culver City? Game 083 Solution

Posted by Scupine on December 10, 2014 at 6:30am 0 Comments

Periodically, I post a picture of something in Culver City that is 'hiding in plain sight.' Last week I asked: Do you know where in Culver City this "jungle cat" is?

Personally I had never seen these cougars before I spotted them on a rainy day last week (explaining the horrible quality of these pics)), so I didn't expect anyone to know the answer. Contrary to my expectations, this entry generated quite few responses, if you include those on Culver CIty Times' Facebook page, where Bernadette Sheridan…


Annenberg Foundation Unexpectedly Retracts Its Controversial Proposal for Ballona Wetlands

Posted by Scupine on December 9, 2014 at 6:00am 0 Comments

Area C, a 64-acre portion of the Uplands area of Ballona Creek Wetlands, is a pretty but troubled piece of open, Culver City-adjacent land owned by State of California. The Annenberg Foundation had put a $50-million proposal on the table that offered to make extensive improvements to the land but also included a controversial interpretive center and domestic animal adoption component – a move that put them at odds with some local environmental groups. Now the Annenberg Foundation has announced that it has rescinded its proposal.

Said Jordan Traverso of the California Department of Fish and Wildlife (the organization charged with determining how to proceed with the restoration of Area C). “After considerable thought and reflection, the Annenberg Foundation’s leadership has made a decision to suspend its continuing involvement in the restoration planning for the Ballona Wetlands Ecological Reserve. The Foundation informed us of this decision after a…


Adopt and Shop Seeking Homes for Underdog Pets

Posted by Scupine on December 8, 2014 at 6:30am 0 Comments

This Holiday season, Adopt & Shop  -- at the corner of Sepulveda and Culver Blvd. -- is hosting a "12 Pets of Christmas" promotion, offering $50 off adoptions throughout the month of December for pets in tough-to-place categories. These “underdogs” include: Chihuahuas, black pets, adult cats, bashful, senior, only, medical needs, overweight and long stay pets, big dogs, pitbulls and bonded pairs.

"Found Animals’ Adopt & Shop was conceived in support of a single belief: all pets deserve a home," says the non-profit. "Since our adoptable dogs and cats come from local shelters, every adoption saves the life of an at-risk animal. Because we’re a nonprofit, purchasing from Adopt & Shop helps more than your favorite pet, it helps all pets. Proceeds…


Ciclavia opens historic MLK and Central blvds - the Soul of LA and the home of West Coast Jazz - to bikes and pedestrians Sunday, Dec. 7

Posted by Enhager on December 6, 2014 at 5:03pm 0 Comments

One of the greatest community events to hit LA - Ciclavia - comes Sunday to Leimert Park - the Soul of LA.

Ciclavia (pronounce it as you like) closes major streets to cars and opens them to walkers, bikers, strollers, unicyclists and the like. Click here for all the details.

This is a slideshow of my trip from Leimert Park to the 2011 Ciclavia that spanned from Boyle Heights to East Hollywood.

You experience your neighborhood (or someone else's) a lot different when you are strolling rather than passing through. You notice more. Especially when there are thousands of likeminded, engaged Angelenos with you.

This is the first Ciclavia in South LA - though South LA peeps have been involved very early on and there were spurs to the Dunbar and Jazz Park on Central Avenue and to Leimert Park Village. The event spanned downtown through Culver City to…
