Sorry New York, California Is Just Better Now - Eater
So collectively, Los Angeles and the Bay Area project out into the world enlightened multiculturalism, casual confidence, quality born from exceptional farming, freethinking (dishes can taste of a specific village in Mexico or a chef’s tinkerings; if it truly hangs together both are okay!), luxury, and accessibility.

Karaoke industry may be facing the music - latimes.com
For what was supposed to have been a flash in the pan, the karaoke phenomenon has had a long run. Musician Inoue Daisuke created the karaoke machine in 1971 using a car stereo, a coin box and an amplifier; the first karaoke "box" venue opened in 1984 in a converted freight car in a Japanese rice field.

The 1990s brought a surge in popularity for karaoke, which means "empty orchestra" in Japanese, not "tone-deaf" as urban legends have it.

"In the beginning, karaoke was kind of a gimmicky thing," said Peter Parker, publisher of Karaoke Scene Magazine. "But it's worked its way into all the cracks in the culture."

Monopoly mergers, or die? | Steve Greenberg
Would I buy and read the mega-paper? Yes, because I’m a life-long newspaper reader, but there are ever-fewer of us. Would I work for the mega-paper? Not sure… the employment picture at newspapers right now is somewhere between insecure and downright miserable.

Would William Dean Singleton come out well in a mega-paper? No doubt. Hey, there’s at least some good news for somebody in all this.

John Guare: 'Writing is a blood sport' | Stage | The Guardian

Pop music notes on the decade: Authenticity takes a holiday | Pop & Hiss | Los Angeles Times
[...] I celebrate the return of glitter and weirdness and fakery in pop. It's opening up the doors to those who didn't fit more constrictive paradigms of authenticity: more women, more gay and lesbian faces, more multiracial and international voices. In general, it's making for a fuller reflection of life in our fragmented, hyper-accelerated time of struggle.

Pop today might seem like a big charade, but it's teasing out deeper truths. Authenticity's bound to make a comeback; after all, Brooks just came out of retirement (not that he doesn't have a showman's flair!) and Lilith Fair returns next spring. But after this decade, even the most sincere expressions of self will have to be multiple and complicated.

We've finally all learned the lesson of the disco prophet Sylvester: only by admitting that nothing is straightforward can we feel Mighty Real.

Imagine: L.A. bicyclists in the driver's seat, one day a week -- latimes.com
"It can be scary out there," admits cicLAvia's Adonia Lugo, a PhD anthropology candidate at UC Irvine studying bicycle culture in the Southland. "Los Angeles has a very strong bike culture, but I think the casual rider has the perception that this is a dangerous city for cycling."

"I think the best thing about a ciclovia is that it would give people a chance to try biking, without having to feel like they're risking their lives as soon as they leave the driveway," Lugo adds. "This would give people a safe space to travel around their neighborhoods without using a car."

David Byrne: New York State of Mind
What is it about certain cities and places that fosters specific attitudes? Am I imagining that this is the case? To what extent does the infrastructure of cities shape the lives, work, and sensibilities of their inhabitants? Quite significantly, I suspect. All this talk about bike lanes, ugly buildings, and density of population isn't just about those things, it's about what kinds of people those places turn us into. I don't think I'm imagining that people who move to L.A. from elsewhere inevitably lose a lot of that elsewhere and eventually end up creating L.A.-type work and being L.A.-type people. Do creative, social, and civic attitudes change depending on where we live? Yes, I think so.

In Los Angeles, Mexican Songs Without Borders - NYTimes.com
Narcocorridos make you feel good, Pablo had told me, at a Oaxacan restaurant in downtown Los Angeles over mole and horchata, a sugary rice drink. Pablo has a sweet tooth. He also has a taste for bitter, bloody narco songs.

It has nothing to do with dealing or using drugs yourself, he said. It’s the stories — of power and vengeance, of lust and betrayal — all to that happy beer-hall beat. If you’ve had a bad day at work, you’re sad, or lonely, a jolt of corrido picks you up.

When he hears them, Pablo said, “Oh man, I feel like I don’t give a damn,” using another word for damn. “I feel free.” He laughed.

Pablo’s not a drug dealer or user. He’s not even Mexican. He’s from El Salvador. He was right, I thought — people everywhere have been writing, singing and drawing consolation from desolate songs forever.

Ann Powers: Kris Allen beats Adam Lambert. A shock? Nah. | Idol Tracker | Los Angeles Times
In terms of the music industry, he cuts a more contemporary figure than Lambert: Many stars now (specifically rock-oriented, male ones) tend to do better when they draw themselves to scale, offering songs that make fans feel warm and connected, not blown away.

Think Jack Johnson. Dave Matthews. Jason Mraz, who performed on the “Idol” finale. And on the country side, Keith Urban, with whom Allen did a spirited duet early in the show.

This approachable kind of pop figure is one that often naturally emerges from the “Idol” competition. David Cook, last year’s winner, is cut from this natural-fiber cloth. Performing “Permanent,” the song he has dedicated to the brother he recently lost to cancer, Cook epitomized what Allen will likely soon become — a crowd favorite, empathetic and touchable.

Daggle: Behind The Scenes Of The Greg In Hollywood Launch
My good friend Greg Hernandez, a veteran Hollywood reporter, was laid off from his job at the Daily News last Monday. In the week since, it's a been an all-hands-on-deck rush to get him established on his new blog, now up at Greg In Hollywood. Below, a look at how it all came together, with a focus on the many details you have to consider when getting a new blog (or web site) up and running.

Los Angeles Times editor chats about cuts in his newsroom with predecessor who resisted them » Nieman Journalism Lab » Pushing to the Future of Journalism
Q. And you’ve also said that currently, online revenue covers or could cover the cost of the newsroom alone at the L.A. Times.

Stanton: Mmhm. Just the payroll, not the expense of gathering the news, which is a whole other double-digit, large, million-dollar figure.

Q: So let me ask the devil’s advocate question, which is — and there are plenty of answers to this, of course — why not shut off the presses right now?

Stanton: For a number of reasons. One, in our case, you’d be walking away from hundreds and hundreds of millions of dollars in revenue that you don’t have to— you know, why part with that until you have to? And that’s one of the strategies that we’re employing and I suspect a lot of others are, which is, we’ve got to slowly— we’ve got to hold on to the paper as long as humanly possible because it is the lifeblood that finances everything else.

Seattle Named 'Most Wired' City by Forbes - PC World
Despite its reputation as a hotbed of tech, California didn't land a single city in the top 10. San Francisco came in at No. 11, a significant fall from last year's No. 4 ranking. While the City by the Bay is tops in broadband adoption -- a good indication of a Net-savvy citizenry -- it has relatively few Wi-Fi hotspots or companies providing high-speed Internet access, Forbes reports. San Diego, Los Angeles, and Sacramento were ranked No. 12, 13, and 19, respectively.

New York Times Economix Blog: New York, New York, America's Resilient City
[...] According to National Association of Realtors data, New York is the only city in the continental United States, outside of San Francisco Bay, where median sales prices remain north of $500,000. [...]

[...] This is not the first time that New York has weathered a downturn well. Between 1950 and 2000, all but 2 of the 10 largest American cities lost 20 percent or more of their populations. America’s older, colder cities were buffeted badly by an exodus of manufacturing jobs, suburbanization and the move to the Sun Belt. Some cities — Cleveland, Detroit and St. Louis — shrank to one-half or less of their former size. New York and Los Angeles were the two cities that grew. While Los Angeles had everything going for it — cars, sunshine, movie stars — New York, then as now, seemed to have everything going against it. [...]

California Media Collaborative: What a Tribune Company bankruptcy could mean for California
Singleton's approach -- which is to buy up newspapers in a single market area, and then share reporters, editing staff, office space, and other costs -- may be the only new potentially viable business model to have emerged from the catastrophic restructuring that the media industry is currently undergoing. This approach does not guarantee journalistic quality -- but it does offer strategy, albeit a despressing one, for how to cut costs.

What's significant is that 29 of Singleton's daily newspapers are in Northern California,and only 16 are in Southern California -- where the majority of Californians live.

Bringing together the LA Times, the San Diego Union Tribune and the Orange County Register would, in effect, replicate in Southern California Singleton's organizational structure in Northern California, but on a more ambitious scale than anything he has thus far attempted.
