LA Today: Rain and Rainbows


-- Photo By TJ Sullivan -- Click to View Larger Version --

Rain in Los Angeles is national news ... but we actually saw just enough sun today for a couple killer rainbows.

Captured this one with the Google Phone (G1) camera.

Soup, Soup, Soup ...


-- Photo By TJ Sullivan --

I found a recording I did in 1997 of the poem "Soup," one of the pieces I often read at poetry readings in LA during the late 1990s -- places like The Midnight Special bookstore, which, sad to say, has long since closed. I uploaded the "Soup" audio to the Web site, along with the text of the poem.

Disclosure: I shot this photo in December 2004 ... which is just about the last time we saw any rain in Los Angeles. But, if what the forecasts, and the skies, are saying is true, we're in for a storm.

285+ Book-Related Links


-- Photo By TJ Sullivan --
As promised, I have completed my search for book-related blogs and Web sites. All 285 of the sites listed here have been confirmed as active, meaning they've all featured fresh content in the past 30 days, or so. Of course, this is by no means a complete list. If you've got a few book clubs, book blogs, and/or book-related Web sites to suggest, send them along and I'll gladly append the list.

Enjoy ...

LA Today: Pyrocumulus Cloud


-- Photo By TJ Sullivan -- Click to View Larger Version --


Today's view from the Westside of the Station Fire. That's the InterContinental Hotel in Century City (perhaps better known by its former incarnation as the Park Hyatt) in the foreground. Remember, this photo was taken in a location more than 40 miles from the fire that created that pyrocumulus cloud.

-- Photo Collage By TJ Sullivan -- Click to View XXL Version --


A couple hours south of Los Angeles you'll find San Diego's Pacific Beach, home of great surf and the Crystal Pier Hotel, which offers cottage accommodations actually located on the pier, over the water. It's the only thing like it in Southern California. This photo is a view from the second floor of the main hotel structure. Click photo to view an extra large version in separate window.

LA Times Headquarters Off the Market


— Photo by TJ Sullivan —
First of all, since the Los Angeles Times headquarters was never really ON the market it's hard to justify saying it's now off.

Secondly, I'm no expert on bankruptcy law, but, having reported at length on a few sizable BK filings, I have to ask how in the world Tribune Co. could have hoped to legally liquidate any significant assets at this point in its bankruptcy proceedings.

Nonetheless, Chicago Business is reporting that the Los Angeles Times parent Tribune Co. has shelved its plans to sell the LA Times headquarters downtown and the Tribune Tower in downtown Chicago "because of cratering real estate prices and the company's late-year bankruptcy protection filing."

Here's a snippet from the story at Chicago Business:
Even in a good market, it would have been difficult to value the properties. Tribune Tower was completed in 1925 and contains about 526,000 square feet of usable office space. The five-building Times Mirror complex totals about 750,000 square feet and was built between the 1930s and the 1970s.

Last Rites for Frisco's Last Paper?


— Photo by TJ Sullivan —


It looks like San Francisco could lose its only remaining mainstream daily newspaper.

LA Observed points to a report published Tuesday on the Chronicle Web site that details an announcement by The Hearst Corp. warning of possible closure.

From the story in the Chronicle:
In a posted statement, Hearst said if the savings cannot be accomplished "quickly" the company will seek a buyer, and if none comes forward, it will close the Chronicle. The Chronicle lost more than $50 million in 2008 and is on a pace to lose more than that this year, Hearst said.
Read the rest of the story at the Chronicle Web site.
