LA Weekly is a free weekly alternative newspaper in Los Angeles, California. It was founded in 1978 by Jay Levin, who served as president and editor until 1991. Voice Media Group sold the paper in late 2017 to Semanal Media LLC. According to its website, LA Weekly has been the premier source for award-winning coverage of Los Angeles music, film, culture, events." The LA Weekly recognizes outstanding small theatre productions in Los Angeles, with their annual LA Weekly Theater Awards, established in 1979. Starting in 2006, LA Weekly has hosted the LA Weekly Detour Music Festival every October; the entire block surrounding Los Angeles City Hall is closed off to accommodate the festival's three stages. Some of its most famous writers were Pulitzer Prize-winning food writer Jonathan Gold, who left in early 2012, Nikki Finke, who blogged about the film industry through the Weekly's website and published a print column in the paper each week, leaving in June 2009 after the blog she founded, Deadline Hollywood Daily, was acquired by an online firm.
The paper was founded in 1978 by Jay Levin, who served as its editor from 1978 to 1991 and its president from 1978 to 1992. Levin put together an investment group that included actor Michael Douglas, Burt Kleiner, Joe Benadon and Pete Kameron; the majority of its core of initial staff members came from the Austin Sun, a similar-natured bi-weekly, which had ceased publication. Although some former employees have complained about personnel moves since the Weekly's parent company's acquisition by New Times Media in 2004, the paper has won a Pulitzer Prize, broke the story of the "Grim Sleeper" serial killer; some of those disgruntled ex-employees complained when New Times replaced news editor Alan Mittelstaedt with veteran New Times editor Jill Stewart. But in the 2009 LA Press Club Awards, the Weekly won six first-place awards, including three by staff writer Christine Pelisek, honored as the city's best reporter in investigative reporting, hard news, news feature. Harold Meyerson, once the Weekly's political editor, charged in a departing email to Weekly staffers in 2006 that the new owners had grafted a cookie-cutter template for editorial content onto the publication.
Writers once associated with the Weekly but let go by the paper's current management include Meyerson, classical music critic Alan Rich, theater critic Steven Leigh Morris, film critic Ella Taylor, columnist Marc Cooper. Internal cut backs have resulted in the paper eliminating the position of managing editor, letting go several staff writers and other editorial department positions, as well as cutting the entire fact checking department. On June 1, 2009, the paper announced that Editor-in-Chief Laurie Ochoa, who began helming the paper in 2001, was "parting ways" with the Weekly. On that same day, ads for her replacement appeared on Journalismjobs.com. Though some speculated that Stewart was a shoo-in for the position, the job went to Drex Heikes of the Los Angeles Times; when Heikes left in 2011, he was replaced by Sarah Fenske. Weekly management said. However, some of the cuts are attributable to philosophical differences with the paper's then-owners, who have since sold the chain. Former staff writer Matthew Fleischer said at the time that "as part of the company's'plug-and-play' management strategy, writers and ad directors were moved from city to city within the chain, without regard for local knowledge.
Any old-school Village Voice Media manager who resisted the metamorphosis was denounced as a'lefty,' a'throwback,' and worse. They were fired or fled."Since 2008, LA Weekly has hosted a food and wine festival, now dubbed The Essentials, that draws sizable crowds. In 2009, former'Los Angeles Times food writer Amy Scattergood became food blogger at LA Weekly's Squid Ink, was promoted to food editor. In late 2009, the paper hired Dennis Romero of Ciudad magazine, as a full-time news blogger. Following the recession, in 2012 the paper added food critic Besha Rodell, a James Beard nominee and former food editor of Atlanta's Creative Loafing. In 2013, LA Weekly named Amy Nicholson as its lead film critic. In 2016, LA Weekly named multimedia journalist and Emmy-winning producer Drew Tewksbury as managing editor. In September 2012, Village Voice Media executives Scott Tobias, Christine Brennan and Jeff Mars bought Village Voice Meda's papers and associated web properties from its founders and formed Voice Media Group.
The paper won journalism awards before and after this transition, with two of its news writers, Patrick Range McDonald and Gene Maddaus, winning the Los Angeles Press Club's nod for Journalist of the Year. For a time in the Los Angeles market, LA Weekly competed against two now-defunct publications, including Brand X and LA CityBeat, a smaller alternative weekly newspaper owned by Southland Publishing, which ceased publication in March 2009. Southland owns the Pasadena Weekly, The Argonaut on the Westside of Los Angeles, other print products in Southern California. In November 2017, the publication was sold to Semanal Media LLC. In December 2017, it was revealed that the new owners of Semanal Media LLC are men from Orange County and include "David Welch, a Los Angeles-based attorney with ties to the cannabis industry.

Dudley Stuart John Moore, CBE was an English actor, comedian and composer. Moore first came to prominence in the UK as one of the four writer-performers in the comedy revue Beyond the Fringe from 1960, with one member of that team, Peter Cook, collaborated on the television series Not Only... But Also; the double act worked on other projects until the mid-1970s, by which time Moore had settled in Los Angeles to concentrate on his film acting. His solo career as a comedy film actor was heightened by the success of hit Hollywood films Foul Play, 10 and Arthur. For Arthur, Moore won a Golden Globe Award, he received a second Golden Globe for his performance in Maude. Moore was born at the original Charing Cross Hospital in central London, the son of Ada Francis, a secretary, John Moore, a railway electrician, his father was Scottish, from Glasgow. Moore was brought up in Essex, he was notably short at 5 ft 2 in and was born with club feet that required extensive hospital treatment and, coupled with his diminutive stature, made him the butt of jokes from other children.
His right foot responded well to corrective treatment and had straightened itself by the time he was six, but his left foot became permanently twisted and his left leg below the knee was withered. This was something of which he remained self-conscious throughout his life. Moore became a choirboy at the age of six. At age eleven he earned a scholarship to the Guildhall School of Music, where he took up harpsichord, violin, musical theory and composition, he developed into a talented pianist and organist and was playing the pipe organ at local church weddings by the age of 14. He attended Dagenham County High School where he received musical tuition from a dedicated teacher, Peter Cork, who became a friend and confidant to Moore and continued to correspond with him until 1994. Moore's musical talent won him an organ scholarship to Magdalen College, where he was tutored by the composer Bernard Rose. While studying music and composition there, he performed with Alan Bennett in the Oxford Revue. During his university years, Moore had developed a love of jazz music and soon became an accomplished jazz pianist and composer.
He began working with such leading musicians as Cleo Laine. In 1960 he left Dankworth's band to work on Beyond the Fringe. John Bassett, a graduate of Wadham College, Oxford recommended Moore, his jazz bandmate and a rising cabaret talent, to producer Robert Ponsonby, putting together a comedy revue entitled Beyond the Fringe. Bassett chose Jonathan Miller. Moore recommended Alan Bennett, who in turn suggested Peter Cook. Beyond the Fringe was at the forefront of the 1960s UK satire boom, although the show's original runs in Edinburgh and the provinces in 1960 had had a lukewarm response; when the revue transferred to the Fortune Theatre in London, in a revised production by Donald Albery and William Donaldson, it became a sensation, thanks in some part to a favourable review by Kenneth Tynan. There were a number of musical items in the show, using Dudley Moore's music, most famously an arrangement of the Colonel Bogey March which resists Moore's repeated attempts to bring it to an end. In 1962 the show transferred to the John Golden Theatre with its original cast.
President John F. Kennedy attended a performance on 10 February 1963; the show continued in New York until 1964. When Moore returned to the UK he was offered his own series on the BBC, Not Only... But Also, it was commissioned as a vehicle for Moore, but when he invited Peter Cook on as a guest, their comedy partnership was so notable that it became a permanent fixture of the series. Cook and Moore are most remembered for their sketches as two working class men and Dud, in macs and cloth caps, commenting on politics and the arts, but they fashioned a series of one-off characters with Moore in the role of interviewer to one of Cook's upper class eccentrics; the pair developed an unorthodox method for scripting the material, using a tape recorder to tape an ad-libbed routine that they would have transcribed and edited. This would not leave enough time to rehearse the script, so they had a set of cue cards. Moore was famous for'corpsing' — the programmes went on live, Cook would deliberately make him laugh in order to get an bigger reaction from the studio audience.
The BBC wiped much of the series. In 1968 Cook and Moore switched to ATV for four one-hour programmes entitled Goodbye Again. On film and Cook appeared in the 1966 British comedy film The Wrong Box, before co-writing and co-starring in Bedazzled with Eleanor Bron; the film was directed by Stanley Donen. The pair closed the decade with appearances in the ensemble caper film Monte Carlo or Bust and Richard Lester's The Bed Sitting Room, based on the play by Spike Milligan and John Antrobus. In 1968 and 1969 Moore embarked on two solo comedy ventures, firstly in the film 30 Is a Dangerous Age and secondly, on stage, for an Anglicised adaptation of Woody Allen's Play It Again, Sam at the Globe Theatre in London's West End. In the 1970s the relationship between Moore and Cook became strained as the latter's alcoholism began affecting his work. In 1971, however and Moore took sketches from Not Only.... But Also and Goodbye Again, together with new material, to create the stage revue Behind the Fridge.
This show toured Australia in 1972

Luigi Pirandello was an Italian dramatist, novelist and short story writer whose greatest contributions were his plays. He was awarded the 1934 Nobel Prize in Literature for "his magical power to turn psychological analysis into good theatre." Pirandello's works include novels, hundreds of short stories, about 40 plays, some of which are written in Sicilian. Pirandello's tragic farces are seen as forerunners of the Theatre of the Absurd. Pirandello was born into an upper-class family in the village of u Càvusu, a poor suburb of Girgenti, his father, belonged to a wealthy family involved in the sulphur industry, his mother, Caterina Ricci Gramitto, was of a well-to-do background, descending from a family of the bourgeois professional class of Agrigento. Both families, the Pirandellos and the Ricci Gramittos, were ferociously anti-Bourbon and participated in the struggle for unification and democracy. Stefano participated in the famous Expedition of the Thousand following Garibaldi all the way to the battle of Aspromonte, Caterina, who had hardly reached the age of thirteen, was forced to accompany her father to Malta, where he had been sent into exile by the Bourbon monarchy.
But the open participation in the Garibaldian cause and the strong sense of idealism of those early years were transformed, above all in Caterina, into an angry and bitter disappointment with the new reality created by the unification. Pirandello would assimilate this sense of betrayal and resentment and express it in several of his poems and in his novel The Old and the Young, it is probable that this climate of disillusion inculcated in the young Luigi the sense of disproportion between ideals and reality, recognizable in his essay on humorism. Pirandello received his elementary education at home but was much more fascinated by the fables and legends, somewhere between popular and magic, that his elderly servant Maria Stella used to recount to him than by anything scholastic or academic. By the age of twelve he had written his first tragedy. At the insistence of his father, he was registered at a technical school but switched to the study of the humanities at the ginnasio, something which had always attracted him.
In 1880, the Pirandello family moved to Palermo. It was here, in the capital of Sicily, he began reading omnivorously, above all, on 19th-century Italian poets such as Giosuè Carducci and Arturo Graf. He started writing his first poems and fell in love with his cousin Lina. During this period the first signs of serious contrast between Luigi and his father began to develop; as a reaction to the ever-increasing distrust and disharmony that Luigi was developing toward his father, a man of a robust physique and crude manners, his attachment to his mother would continue growing to the point of profound veneration. This expressed itself, after her death, in the moving pages of the novella Colloqui con i personaggi in 1915, his romantic feelings for his cousin looked upon with disfavour, were taken seriously by Lina's family. They demanded that Luigi abandon his studies and dedicate himself to the sulphur business so that he could marry her. In 1886, during a vacation from school, Luigi went to visit the sulphur mines of Porto Empedocle and started working with his father.
This experience was essential to him and would provide the basis for such stories as Il Fumo, Ciàula scopre la Luna as well as some of the descriptions and background in the novel The Old and the Young. The marriage, which seemed imminent, was postponed. Pirandello registered at the University of Palermo in the departments of Law and of Letters; the campus at Palermo, above all the Department of Law, was the centre in those years of the vast movement which would evolve into the Fasci Siciliani. Although Pirandello was not an active member of this movement, he had close ties of friendship with its leading ideologists: Rosario Garibaldi Bosco, Enrico La Loggia, Giuseppe De Felice Giuffrida and Francesco De Luca. In 1887, having definitively chosen the Department of Letters, he moved to Rome in order to continue his studies, but the encounter with the city, centre of the struggle for unification to which the families of his parents had participated with generous enthusiasm, was disappointing and nothing close to what he had expected.
"When I arrived in Rome it was raining hard, it was night time and I felt like my heart was being crushed, but I laughed like a man in the throes of desperation."Pirandello, an sensitive moralist had a chance to see for himself the irreducible decadence of the so-called heroes of the Risorgimento in the person of his uncle Rocco, now a greying and exhausted functionary of the prefecture who provided him with temporary lodgings in Rome. The "desperate laugh", the only manifestation of revenge for the disappointment undergone, inspired the bitter verses of his first collection of poems, Mal Giocondo, but not all was negative. "Oh the dramatic theatre! I will conquer it. I cannot enter into one without experiencing a strange sensation, an excitement of the blood through all my veins..." Because of a conflict with a Latin professor, he was forced to leave the University of Rome and went to Bonn with a letter of presentation from one of his other professors. T
Interview is an American magazine founded in late 1969 by artist Andy Warhol and British journalist John Wilcock. The magazine, nicknamed "The Crystal Ball of Pop", features interviews with celebrities, artists and creative thinkers. Interviews were unedited or edited in the eccentric fashion of Warhol's books and The Philosophy of Andy Warhol: From A to B and Back Again. In the early days, complimentary copies of Interview were given away to the "in-crowd". Toward the end of his life, as Warhol withdrew from everyday oversight of his magazine, a more conventional editorial style was introduced under editor Bob Colacello. However, Warhol continued to act as ambassador for the magazine, distributing issues in the street to passersby and creating ad hoc signing events on the streets of Manhattan, New York City; the creative covers of Interview which gave the magazine its signature style were done by artist Richard Bernstein from 1972 to 1989. The magazine's format has remained consistent at 40 % glossy advertising.
It has been published by Brant Publications, Inc since shortly after Warhol's death in 1987. It was helmed for 18 years by Ingrid Sischy, until she and Peter Brant's ex-wife Sandra became lovers and left the magazine, selling Ms. Brant's half-ownership stake in the parent company Brant Publications. For a year and a half the magazine was in flux, edited by Christopher Bollen. Interview restarted under co-editorial directors Fabien Baron and Glenn O'Brien in September 2008, with a cover featuring Kate Moss. Stephen Mooallem and Christopher Bollen served as the working editor-in-chief and editor-at-large, respectively; the publication's content can be via an app, Other Edition, available on iTunes. As of 2017, Fabien Baron was the editorial director. In December 2013, Stephen Mooallem left Interview to join Harper’s Bazaar as its executive editor. Keith Pollock served as editor-in-chief from 2014 to 2016, it was announced on May 21, 2018 that the publication ‘folded’ and would end both its print and web publications by the end of 2018.
The publication filed for Chapter 7 bankruptcy and liquidation. On September 6, 2018, Interview announced the launch of its 521st issue; the magazine was purchased by Kelly Brant and Jason Nikic, with some reports suggesting that the title's intellectual property will be returned to Peter Brant. The magazine is featured in The CW's television series The Carrie Diaries, a prequel to HBO's Sex and the City; the protagonist, played by actress AnnaSophia Robb, vicariously explores New York City through the glamorous fashion editor of Interview, played by Freema Agyeman.
