Kaiza Eats // Boathouse Style

If you had told me years ago that I would look forward to eating breakfast at the Echo Park Boathouse I would’ve thought you were a nut, on drugs, or both (which is entirely likely). I would have reminded you about that one time my (white) foster dog jumped in the water and came back […]

CINCO DE MAYO // FRESH GUACAMOLE

Today is Cinco de Mayo and you know what that means, right? Tequila. Lots of tequila. In all seriousness though, Mexico is one of the most amazing places in the world, and celebrating its heritage is always a good idea in our book. Our neighbor to the South has the people, the culture, the sun […]

125 YEARS OF NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC // ANNENBERG SPACE FOR PHOTOGRAPHY

When National Geographic printed its first pamphlet in 1888, it was a lightly illustrated publication for scientific discussion and discovery.

WORKAHOLIC // ADRIAN LANDON BROOKS

The first time I met our newest Workaholic, he was a bad boy that made great art. Art that was dark and art that was gritty, his pieces reflected the destruction of a chaotic world around him. Since those days, when his signatures included decaying flesh, graphic nudity and an all-around “abrasive beauty,” both the […]

Yesterday Czech director, Vera Chytilova, often called the “First Lady of Czech Cinema,” died at 85 years old. She has left behind a legacy of 20 feature movies—one of which I truly believe changed my life.
