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…

Free Classical Music Concert in Culver City this Sunday

Posted by Scupine on November 20, 2014 at 6:30am 0 Comments

The Los Angeles Doctors Symphony Orchestra will perform a free concert this Sunday, November 23, at 3 pm at Veterans Memorial Auditorium in Culver City. The program will include excerpts from Tchaikovsky’s “Swan Lake” and “Sleeping Beauty;” Brahms’ “Hungarian Dance;” Stravinsky’s “Firebird;” Ravel’s “Minuet Antique;” and more.  

Soloist Mariano Dugatkin will be featured playing Piazzolla’s romantic music for the tango on a bandoneón -- a type of concertina popular in Argentina.  Designed by Heinrich Band, German sailors and workers brought the instrument with them to South America in the late 1800’s.

Founded in 1953 (this is the opening concert of the orchestra’s 61st season), the LA Doctors Symphony…

Will the Former Culver City Courthouse Be Turned into an Extension of LACMA?

Posted by Scupine on November 12, 2014 at 6:00am 2 Comments

Plans are still preliminary at best, but it's such an exciting prospect, I have to pass on the info: The Los Angeles Times has reported that Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors member Mark Ridley-Thomas wants spend $8 million to convert Culver City's former courthouse on Overland Ave. to an "outpost of the Los Angeles County Museum of Art and a media-arts education hub supported by Sony Pictures Entertainment."

Continues the article:

LACMA director Michael Govan said that the art museum hasn’t committed to a satellite gallery in Culver City, although it would serve a strategic goal of establishing outposts around the county to make LACMA’s collection and programs easily accessible to a wider public.

“Nothing’s firm, it’s super-preliminary,”…


Roller Derby Returns to Culver City This Saturday

Posted by Scupine on November 12, 2014 at 6:00am 0 Comments

This Saturday, November 15, the Culver City Veterans Auditorium will be home to a doubleheader of roller derby action: Shore Shots & Road Ragers vs. West Coast Derby Knockouts.

Here's how the organizers describe the event:

The Angel City Derby Girls are a group of women now in their 9th season that have come together purely out of the love of the sport. Some of the athletes have chosen names like Chica Go Lightning, Mickispeedia, Shunami Bomb, AlbaToss and AC Slaughter, to embrace the kitsch of the old-style of roller derby by paying homage to the legacy of skaters who often adopted pseudonyms or nicknames. Despite the witty names, we are serious about the modern incarnation of the sport! ACDG is entirely volunteer-run, skater-owned and operated…


Waterloo & City Will Close; Southern(ish) Food Restaurant 'The Hatchet Hall' Will Take its Place

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

According to the LA Weekly and LA Eater, Culver City's Waterloo & City will close in the beginning of 2015. That's the bad news. The good news is that there's already a restaurant lined up to take its place. Southern-leaning restauranteur Brian Dunsmoor will be launching The Hatchet Hall in its place in March. 

Dunsmoor was previously the chef at The Hart & the Hunter, the restaurant in the Palihotel on Melrose that offered dishes like Low-Country Shrimp Boil with corn,…


Gallery Pick of the Week: Lily Stockman at Luis De Jesus Gallery in Culver City

Posted by Scupine on November 7, 2014 at 6:00am 0 Comments

Lily Stockman's new show, "Women," opens this Saturday night, November 8, at Luis De Jesus. An artist's reception -- always free, open to the public, and lots of fun -- will be held on Saturday from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m. Says the gallery's web site about the show and Stockman's work: 

Lily Stockman's exuberant, vibratory abstract paintings are based on commonplace experience that transcends the "object" to reveal a phenomenological experience for the viewer. They are a distillation of her own immediate interactions in the world: her observations on specific architecture (a drive-in theater in Twentynine Palms, the Art Deco "movie palaces" of Downtown Los Angeles), landscape (the desert palette of Rajastan, India, and Joshua Tree, California), evolution through…

Update: Stoneview Park in the Blair Hills Area of Culver City

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

Los Angeles County Public Works will soon begin demolishing the existing old school structures on the Stoneview Park site. The county says it will use the most remote part of the site, the southwest corner, for louder activities such as breaking up concrete, to minimize disruption to the nearby residential area. The county is currently in negotiations with a design/builder for the project, and design is slated to start by mid to late November. Construction activities for the new park will begin in spring 2015.

The plan for the nature center calls for a one-story, 4,000-square-foot building housing a multi-purpose room, a staff office, restrooms, and a terrace with an observation area. A trail will connect the building to various outdoor elements, including an interpretive signage…

What's the Best Bar in Culver City?

Posted by Scupine on October 27, 2014 at 6:00am 0 Comments

Recently, nominated Bigfoot West (on Venice) as the Best Bar in Culver City. Here's what they had to say about the watering hole: 

Both Bigfoot locations look like someone took Yogi Bear's Yosemite ranger stations and plopped 'em down right in the middle of the city. The Westside location has a couple things on its side, though: there aren't a ton of other bars in the area, and it's way bigger than its Atwater brother. Also: there's a BBQ-bombed drink.

From what I gather, this is a hip choice, but I've had a better times at perhaps a half-dozen other bars throughout the city. In fact, my nomination goes to ... the bar at the Culver Hotel.
