Three more Wrecking Crew jewels. It never ends. Come see the movie – our first of the year – this Friday!
By now you’re probably sick of us talking about the Wrecking Crew. Don’t be. You don’t know how good you have it. They’re the best. The award-winning “The Wrecking Crew” will be our first movie of season, the director Denny … Continue reading
We’re showing a film about the musicians who played on the “Greatest Album of All Time,” on May 27th…
…that’d be the Wrecking Crew, and “Pet Sounds,” respectively. To paraphrase a glowing review of “The Wrecking Crew,” the film we’ll be showing here on Friday, May 27th: Never thought I’d live to see the day when someone would liken … Continue reading
The Monkees were the best American pop band ever (if you exclude the Beach Boys; they’re rock, I guess?) and second to only the Fab Four in the known universe. And despite what you may have heard, they played their … Continue reading
Food for thought: there are many fun dance songs. But very few super-sad fun dance songs. Think about out it. All your favorite dance songs are happily-themed or, at the least, not lyrically about some super-tragic, messed-up shiz. Here are … Continue reading

Big Big Big Sur Fashion Show (May 19th) – not to be confused with “Back to the Future” the film. Completely unrelated.
Every November 5th, my friend Sarah watches “Back to the Future,” “Back to the Future 2,” and “if I’m not asleep, ‘Back to the Future 3,’ even though I don’t like it that much.” November 5th because that’s the day … Continue reading
It’ll be a veritable buffet of art: movies, music, poetry, sushi, and music by Songs Hotbox Harry Taught Us. I mean, what else are you doing on a Thursday night? First Hour Variations on Want: Sequence II, by Francesco Levato … Continue reading
Indeed, tomorrow is the big Cinepoetry thing at the Henry Miller Library. It’s a historic night of “firsts”: First event of the Library’s 30th Anniversary Summer Season!! First movie of 2011 First time we’re serving sushi (maybe?) at the HML! … Continue reading
Learn about the founding fathers and mothers of “Hot Tubs” May 14th. And like George Washington, they’re mostly nude.
Everyone has a good hot tub story. Here are two. Once, while in Colorado on a high school marching band trip (we were the cool kids), my friend and I put liquid hand dispenser soap in the hotel hot tub. … Continue reading
