David Mamet's "Race" Opens at the Kirk Douglas Theatre in Culver City This Sunday

Posted by Scupine on September 5, 2014 at 6:00am 0 Comments

Let's see...David Mamet wrote a play called "Race," opening this Sunday, September 7 at 6:30, at the Kirk Douglas Theatre. I wonder if it's going to push anyone's buttons... Here's description of the play: "Mamet tackles America’s most controversial subject in this provocative tale of sex, guilt and bold accusations. In “Race,” two lawyers find themselves defending a wealthy white executive charged with sexually assaulting a black woman.  When a new legal assistant gets involved in the case, the opinions that boil beneath explode to the surface." See for yourself -- and please report back in the comment section!

Directed by longtime Mamet collaborator Scott Zigler, “Race” features actors Chris Bauer (“True Blood,” “The Wire,” Broadway’s “A Streetcar Named Desire”), Dominic Hoffman (Mamet’s…

New Beats by Dre Headquarters in Culver City Draws Praise for Being Cool

Posted by Scupine on August 29, 2014 at 6:30am 0 Comments

The new headquarters that Beat's By Dre just opened in the Hayden Tract area of Culver City isn't too much to look at from the outside -- just a couple of industrial-looking buildings. But according to some design sites on the web, the inside of the two buildings -- home to 650 employees -- is another story altogether.

Says designboom.com, Beats president Luke Wood told designers Bestor Architecture and Loescher + Mechem Architects that he wanted "to make sure it was ‘the best place to work in LA’, for him that meant that it was cool and cutting edge but also comfortable and with a humanist environment for the people who work and visit there.' 

According to fastcodesign.com, "The interior combines spaces saturated in deep blue and red paint …
