My Thoughts for April 19, 2015

Everyone knows curmudgeons like me hate change.  I do. I do. I do. The problem is change is like time—it can’t   be stopped.  The reality is one must learn to deal with it.  Deal with It?  But it is so painful.  Do I have to?  Here’s the short answer. Yep!

There is a change taking place in our communities that is subtle, progressive, and immutable.  It is called the Digital Age.  I loathe it and love it in the same…

Gallery Pick of the Week: The Psychedelia of Charlie Rubin and Tabitha Soren at Kopeikin Gallery in Culver City

Posted by Scupine on April 21, 2015 at 6:30am 0 Comments

"A good photograph blurs the line between reality and fantasy. When I look at a picture, I love it if ... it has a dream quality to it, as if it transcends the real life moment when it was taken." So said Charlie Rubin in a recent interview with foam magazine. And by that definition, Rubin's new show of photographs which opens at Kopeikin Gallery in Culver City this Saturday, April 25, is filled with good photography indeed -- as is that of fellow exhibitor Tabita Soren. The opening reception with the artists runs from 6:00 - 8:00 pm and is -- as always -- free, open to the public, and likely to be lots of fun. 

That's one of Rubin's images above. And one of Soren's is below.

Kopeikin Gallery is located at 2766 S La Cienega…

Guess Which Culver City Made Thrillist's List of Best Bacon Dishes in Los Angeles

Posted by Scupine on April 16, 2015 at 6:00am 0 Comments

Thrillist's most recent list of the best of LA surveyed the city's best bacon dishes. And one Culver City establishment made their list. I'll give you a hint: the dish was Brown Butter Candied Bacon Ice Cream. 

That's right, it's Coolhaus. Here's what Thrillist had to say about the ice cream:

Both Coolhaus' brick-and-mortar locations and roving trucks offer a lot of ridiculously clever ice cream options (chocolate-covered churro! Spiked coffee and donuts!! Fried chicken and waffles!!!), which you can and will sandwich between two equally awesome cookies (peanut butter Cap'n Crunch! S'mores!! Nutella!!!). But the one flavor-must is the one that helped put them on the frozen treats map: the…
