  8. Trendzilla: Boycott Black FridayRead the original story w/Photo

    Tuesday Nov 25 | OC Weekly

    What's with people who think Black Friday is a symbol of pure, American greed? Sure, a paid holiday and visiting with family is great, BUT WHAT ABOUT THE DEALZ, MAN?! Waking up at the butt crack of dawn after Thanksgiving isn't good enough anymore! Some of us have to go back to work on Friday because two paid holidays in a row would be insane - where do you think we are, Canada? That's why we need to forgo Thanksgiving dinner altogether to stampede into stores and squash our fellow countrymen that very evening! Seriously, though: Don't go shopping any place that makes employees work on Thanksgiving. You do not need a flat-screen that badly.

  9. OCCCA's 'You Should Not Be Here' Lives Up to Its TitleRead the original story w/Photo

    Wednesday Nov 19 | OC Weekly

    Sometimes a provocative title designed to lure people into an event can also be an unintentional warning label: A Jews for Jesus or Log Cabin Republican meeting, for example, Black Friday at Walmart or the unwittingly-named "You Should Not Be Here" at Orange County Center for Contemporary Art . It's not that there isn't good work on display - there are a few pieces worth mentioning - but this ranks as the least interesting show I've seen in the space: sparse, repetitive and poorly conceived, so artlessly curated by Sali Heraldez and Lilia Lamas that if I hadn't taken notes, it's unlikely I would have even remembered attending.

    The Moan The Wayfarer The latest band to grab the coveted Monday night residency over at the Wayfarer is The Moan, a throwback rock outfit hailing from Santa Ana.
