A Persian BDSM latex mermaid walks into a bar. And a DMV, a SeaWorld Protest, a motorcycle party and our rooftop pool. Watch out Daryl Hannah.

Our spiritual sister Stevie Nicks was the best at selfies before selfies were even a thing. 
Her new video feels filled with deja vu, too.

FIVE THINGS:
Man, myth, baritone legend and brain-heavy old friend Reggie Watts* hung out after his all-improvised set last Thursday at Ace Hotel Downtown Los Angeles for some free-associating. The real genius lives in the negative space.


* This is not a self-portrait.

Everything Is Terrible! is wonderful. They’ve been doing god’s work for a grip now — diving headlong into the mouth of our collective madness, document our compulsion for documenting. It’s the internet distilled to its purest form — sad, hilarious, incomprehensible and totally breathtaking.

Tonight they kick off their fifth annual Everything Is Festival at Cinefamily — a marathon of camp majesty starring more awful than we can recommend in good conscious. Double dog dare you.

Bruce Haack was a Julliard drop out, instrument inventor and innovator in early electronic music. He made children’s records and acid-tinged concept albums with titles like Electric Lucifer and Captain Entropy. Bruce Haack changed everything.

FriendsWithYou's fantasy factory is tucked quietly away in DTLA, right down the street from us. They're super neighborly neighbors.
They’ll help to take things way-out tonight at Summer on 7th's rooftop party — also just down the way — with a bunch of other friendlies.

Like Nina Simone, Cal Ripken, and the congregation of Bull Moose, Ken Burns is an Apple Pie of Americana. In a world that’s increasingly scared to be earnest and vulnerable, it takes guts to embrace and explore the contradictory American Experiment without any added winks or rhetorical backflipping. 
His newest dip into the waters of our past takes on three of a clan who helped shape these United States through the 20th century: The Roosevelts, who covered everything from human rights to stuffed animals to an attempted coup that reads like it was conceived by someone carrying around too many copies of Catcher in the Rye. Tonight at our cathedral to moving pictures and human ingenuity, Mr. Burns and PBS will premier his latest effort. And in a magic little flicker of fortune, we’ve got a select few seats left for the show.
