LOOKING AT LA’S DOPEST ESQUIRES



ALL IN THE FAMILY

Temecula, CA – Continuing on in my LA titles outted in Another Man’s Meal, this report has a hidden cross-over clue pertaining to a coming story. That said, we move on, or more accurately, we move back, back to 1974 in fact. At this time in history the country was moving in unison with smoking pot; see Memoirs’ chapter, ‘The Smoking 70s’. A young lawyer named Bruce Margolin, who had smoked weed in college and benefited from its use decided in his heart that “No one belongs in jail for marijuana” and he started the Los Angeles chapter of NORML, the National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws. Since then he has defended 25K pot cases and Timothy Leary. He also fathered a daughter, Allison, who herself is a pot defense lawyer. They, hands down, are LA’s dopest esquires, aka lawyers.

SCOOPS AND POOPS



TO LIVE AND EAT IN LA – PART 2

Temecula, CA – Question. What happens when a planned article veers off topic? You get a Part Dux. That’s what happened with Comin’ Round Mohawk Bend. So let’s get back on track and talk of the scoops on eats in LA. For that, we start with a delectable ice cream/frogurt [frozen yogurt] spot called SCOOPS, which is located around the corner from the Ukrainian Culture Center on Melrose [712 N Heliotrope Dr, Los Angeles, CA 90029, to be exact]. I know what you’re saying; frozen yogurt places are not news and haven’t been since Pink Berry. Wrong-o.
What makes SCOOPS a subject for this report can be put into two scoops. The first scoop is of course the flavors. If you’re looking for vanilla, strawberry, mint chocolate, or even cake batter, stay at your regular frogurt stand.

COMIN’ ROUND MOHAWK BEND



TO LIVE AND EAT IN LA

Temecula, CA – The very latest blessing to come out of Occupy LA, an event many who never came to the city hall encampment have dismissed, is a reconnection to the cousin who now lives in the area known as Culver City, a five square mile area of about 39K folks that is mostly surrounded by Los Angeles on the east. Having a book out is something to shout about, especially to kin-folk, so I was all about saying ‘hello’ and what have you been up to since I last saw you as a kid? Turns out, a lot.

ONE MAN’S LEFTOVERS IS ANOTHER MAN’S MEAL



DRESS REHEARSAL FOR A NORML 4/20?


UCC, LA - The spacious venue in the greater LA area known as the Ukrainian Culture Center or YKO, is a landmark showcasing Los Angeles’ Ukrainian cultural heritage with holiday recitals, Ukrainian festivals, cultural classes and a dance studio upstairs on the second floor. The building itself is worth a tour, as it is one of those art deco gems of early Hollywood design. Like so many older buildings in this part of town, if you look past the worn edges, you will find some beautiful details.

The file photo at the right shows the elegance of the old world grandeur with a full house in attendance. Unfortunately, the LA NORML event that unfolded on January 19th played to an empty house due to ‘rookie mistakes’ proving once again that experience in promoting provides what ego and delegation doesn’t – results, or conversely, the lack thereof. But I come not to bury Caesar with my words, only to wonder if this event Fail will lead to a much more successful 4/20 party for LA’s NORML. After all, everything else went pretty good, and the ‘leftovers’ will yield several new LA tales from this journalist. So let’s get crackin’.

WHY KONY 2012 IS NOW KONY 2013


A RAPP TO PROTECT AMERICAN CULPRITS

Temecula, CA – Running successful ‘false flag’ operations, recruiting ‘enemies’ for regime change, operating secret worldwide renditions, ignoring collateral damage from drone strikes, and bumping people off Raymond Davis style is easy to keep from the home crowd via disinformation or security scares. But how do you stay out of trouble with the rest of the world when they see you/US as the world’s terrorists? In the following report from Blake Evans-Pritchard dated just 3 days ago, we see how George Dubya set things up so 9/11 could be pulled off as a Muslim sacrifice and why Joe Kony 2012 has now become Kony 2013.

THE DAY THE PIG GOT POKED

WHEN THE REAL GOLDFINGER WENT UP UR ASS

Temecula, CA – With all the hubbub about the ‘fiscal cliff’ and the debt ceiling going on and people freaking out about ‘gun control’ coming from Obama, it’s easy to get caught up and clutch on to your wallet, or start sweating bullets about your budget. You see taxes going up and the size of items going down. You are feeling the pinch, but are you really?
A Jewish person who employed me once told me that everything that came into his shop had the value of a penny (worth) until he applied the selling price. It took me a while to wrap my head around what he meant since I saw the invoice prices. However, looking back on the old Jew’s statement with my present day financial understanding of events which occurred before my time paints a different money statement.
After the jump, the ‘two’ days actually, because the pig got poked twice and then when the real Goldfinger video stories.

MAY THE SWARTZ BE WITH US ANONYMOUSLY



DID THE FEDS REALLY KILL COMPUTER WHIZ?


Temecula, CA – With the recent ‘suicide by hanging’ of internet freedom activist Aaron Swartz and his father’s statement to mourners Tuesday during his son's funeral in suburban Chicago that his son was "killed by the government" the sub-headline question comes onto play. Rep. Issa is launching an investigation.

 “I’ll make a risky statement here: Over-prosecution is a tool often used to get people to plead guilty rather than risk sentencing,” Issa said. “It is a tool of question. If someone is genuinely guilty of something and you bring them up on charges, that’s fine. But throw the book at them and find all kinds of charges and cobble them together so that they’ll plea to a 'lesser included' is a technique that I think can sometimes be inappropriately used.”

This statement is very creepy in the sense that it describes what a lot of more "restrictive" governments do to suppress dissent in their regimes. This is the sort of thing that could be applied to just about anybody when they take your guns first then turn your social security into a government voucher. So who was Aaron Swartz and why did he so frighten the feds that they might take him out, activist-style, in a reported self-hanging?

"ONE-PRACTICE WONDERS"



STRIKE TWELVE GOES ACOUSTIC AT BRATTS



Temecula, CA – The intended result of turning the Temecula bar establishment called Bratts into an adult version of the long gone scene blossom Java Joz took another turn in the right direction with the acoustic show Strike Twelve put on Saturday night. Of course it wasn’t just the usual fly-by-the-seat-of-your-pants, crowd-pleasing performance by the guys that put Bratts closer to the fabled old scene center.
As often spoke about in the days of Java Joz, it was a combination of hot, fresh music and a set of gifted, talented youth troubled with today’s common maladies, like ADHD, OCD, BPD, raised up in Christian homes but bearing as much baggage as a certain scene historian, and some with even more, think Bipsy, the scene Saint.
This combination of unique people fused the original, political, sexually charged pubescent music that sparked in the underground, read local, music scene, creating an escape to wonderland for us all.

FOOTBALL NEWS AFTER BCS TITLE GAME & NFL WILD CARD





FROM THE DESK OF THE “FUGITIVE” COMMISSIONER

Hello Football Fans,
We're in the middle of the NFL playoffs, but I've thrown in some other tidbits.
Enjoy,
The Fugitive Commissioner of the FFHL

I have already sent out my bowl summary by conference, and I choose to nearly ignore the ugly National Championship game.
Alabama won the title for the second straight year, and an SEC team has won the national title seven straight years.  The Crimson Tide was just lucky to get into the game.  Those OU Ducks let most of the country down by losing at home to Stanford.  The SEC is dominating, and it is nauseating, to put it mildly.

On a more interesting note, one of the six BCS computers still had Notre Dame ranked #1 ….. after they got crushed by the Tide 42-14.  The BCS computer formulas cannot take into account margin of victory.  We have one more year of the BCS, and then for the 2014 season it will be a 4-team playoff with a selection committee to choose the four semi-finalists.

WATCHING YOUR STEP IN LA



REAL-LIFE JUNIOR WOODCHUCKS COMPETITION

Temecula, CA – Traveling outside T-town to parts hither anywhere adds to your experience but some places leave you with something to write home to mom about, especially in these days of squeezed middle school budgets. Perhaps the next story taken from a recent LA Art Walk experience could be adapted by some enterprising school district to help finance the arts program.

At the Art Walk Lounge, 634 S. Spring (DLA), the Woodcraft Rangers were holding a ‘Kicks R Canvas’ Exhibition, sponsored by Project Canvas, the style maker of the shoes used in making canvas shoe art. Though canvas shoe art comes in two categories, amateur and collector/pro, it is the amateur class, a competition between middle schoolers city-wide, whose shoes are on display this night to be picked as the top 15 pair out of 65 total designs.

T’WAS THE NIGHT AFTER CHRISTMAS*



THE ‘DOOMSDAY MEMOIRS’ BOOK TOUR BEGINS

Temecula, CA – Hello Sports Fans, I won’t kid you. This adventure is different from any story or political event that I have tracked down or been a part of. I’m pumped but in a protracted way. I guess the best way to put this is like if Moses had been allowed to take a complete journey rather than just see over the mountain top. Even more than being anointed ‘scene historian’ or a local name around these parts, famous in some circles, infamous in others, the launch of the book, hard copy, represents an end to always feeling like a procrastinator.

However, the end of one journey begets another one with it being no time to rest on my laurels, literally, so here is the January itinerary:

YOU HEARD IT HERE FIRST



KATY PERRY VOTED HOTTEST WOMAN ON PLANET 2013

Temecula, CA – In a story dated 12/07/12, the secondary headline read ‘the hottest bitch in town’ with the lead photo showing Katy Perry at the Trevor Awards. Though the headline didn’t refer to our local heroine, Katy Perry, who went to school here under her Christian-given last name, events have added to one extraordinary year for one extraordinary personality packed into a woman whose outward appearance is also her canvas.

Katy Perry has been named the hottest woman of 2013 just five days into the New Year. The singer bested competition from Mila Kunis to clinch top spot on a list of the 100 Hottest Women of 2013 by Men's Health magazine.

DROTHSCHILD UNCHAINED



AMBITIOUS NEW TEMECULA BOOK PLANNED

HAPPY NEW YEAR from DJ Catter. My friend PT is busy promoting his just released Memoirs of Mr. Pete & Mary Jane Green, available on Amazon and Createspace. However, I was able to catch up with him for a quick New Year’s Eve chat.
DJ Catter: Hello PT. How are you feeling this fine evening?
PT Rothschild: Excited! I haven’t felt this sense of excitement since I was in advertising back in Indianapolis. But this is way more fun. I’m advertising my product, not promoting some client’s. The radio show is coming up, I’m still sending out personal notices – dude, I didn’t know that I knew so many people. Then there’s the upcoming LA NORML fundraiser. Plus I came up with my next book project, so whew!
