"Bluenose" in Mammoth; review gives thumbs up

November 16, 2012

It is universally acknowledged that getting an elementary school kid to sit still for 35 minutes is nearly impossible—unless you have a special kind of magical comedy.

I think most people remember their first exposure to theatre. You spent most of your days in the sunlight, until one day you and your buddy get off the bus and walk into a dark room with a brightly lit stage on the far end. I was always too short to see over the person in front of me, and would struggle to balance, sitting cross-legged in the theater seat, until the lights were all dimmed.

November 16, 2012

For the sixth straight year, the Wild & Scenic Film Festival comes to the Eastside, thanks to the Friends of the Inyo.

The films, collected by the South Yuba Rivers Citizens League (SYRCL), will show in Mammoth at the Edison Theatre on Friday, Nov. 30; in Bishop at the Cerro Coso Community College on Saturday, Dec. 1, and in Lone Pine at the Lone Pine Film Museum on Thursday, Dec. 6. All showings begin at 7 p.m. and the $10 ticket prize includes a raffle entry.

RZA takes control of Canyon Lodge

November 16, 2012

The thumping bass swelled as I swaggered up the flight of stairs at Canyon Lodge for Mammoth Mountain’s opening weekend concert with RZA from the Wu Tang Clan.

The forum was lit like a disco, just dark enough to make everyone look sexy but with bright flashes keeping up with every quick beat. The crowd looked mostly young from where I stood at the bar, checking out the night’s vibe.

Fido & Me — Thanksgiving Tree

November 16, 2012

“Let’s put up the tree!”

“Fido, what the heck are you talking about?”

“It’s almost Thanksgiving, so let’s put up the tree!”

“Old Boy, I believe you are getting your holidays mixed up. The tree is a Christmas thing, not a Thanksgiving thing. Thanksgiving is about giving thanks for everything we have received. Christmas is about giving—a way to say to someone that they’re important to us.”

Fido scrunched into a sit while he considered all this.

“What’s the tree got to do with it, then?”

“Fido, you ask darned good questions sometimes.”
