Laurel and Hardy Walk the Streets of Culver City





Reminding us that all movies are, on some level, documentaries, this video does an great job of identifying the locations around Main Street in downtown Culver City where Laurel and Hardy did their thing.

In a recent profile in the Los Angeles Times, screenwriter Max Winkler -- son of the Fonz himself -- said he wrote most of the script to his new movie "Ceremony" while sitting in the tea room at the Museum of Jurassic Technology.

Rock Musical Based on Matthew Sweet's "Girlfriend" Opens at the Kirk Douglas in Culver City

Ok, this one is kind of crazy in a great way. If you're of a certain age (mine), you may well have fallen in love with a largely unheralded 1991 album by Matthew Sweet. The album is full of classic pop melodies (AllMusic cites "the Beatles, Big Star, Byrds, R.E.M., and Neil Young," and, uh, yeah) as well as soaring guitar leads from Sweet himself as well as guitar gods Robert…
