    Los Angeles Times ^ | January 3, 2013 | Randy Lewis
    Phil Everly, who with his brother, Don, made up the most revered vocal duo of the rock-music era, their exquisite harmonies profoundly influencing the Beatles, the Beach Boys, the Byrds and countless younger-generation rock, folk and country singers, died Friday in Burbank of complications from chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, his wife, Patti Everly, told The Times. He was 74.

    Oh my, it happened again. Last time, it must have been almost 10 years ago, I had a keystroke capturing malware on the 'puter and some bastard from L.A. ordered a couple of hundred dollars of computer memory from a computer company, which then put me on its mailing list where I remain to this day receiving daily spam while never having bought anything from them. But that was all. The bank replaced the credit card, it didn't cost me a cent, and the culprit probably got away with it. The cops told me they get a couple of hundred...

    If you happen to care about grammar and spelling, then in these post-literate times you can expect to be considered a pedant by the semi-literate, and a "grammar nazi" by the illiterate. My blood pressure rises when I see misuses of the apostrophe, pluralization with an apostrophe, "impact" as a verb, "pro-active" in all its uses, "there is a lot" and "there is many", "He would have if he would have", among other errors familiar to the readers among whom I don't expect to see makers of such errors. Still, I realize that the battle has been lost now. Here...

    I take a lot of photographs. So many, that my Sony DSLR broke, probably from abuse of my use, the LCD screen in the OVF mode won’t display, though everything else works OK, and two distant repair outfits sent me estimates of $200 and $235 plus shipping, while Sony says send it in, we’ll tell ya. (Ever hear any more of local repair shops for anything?) Repair or replace? Anyway, walking downtown this afternoon I saw a familiar figure a tenor saxophone player, a very good one, who plays at some or other spot downtown all the time, really, I...

    It was the yearly street fair. The big one. Sunny Sunday afternoon, booths selling tchotchkies, Mexican and oriental food (try calling it politically correctly ‘Asian-American’ when the sellers themselves called it ‘Oriental’), insurance companies, banks, chiropractors offering free spinal exams, political candidates and political causes, save the planet, save the greyhounds, church booths - I didn’t see the community church which bear hugged me last year and which I promised myself to visit and never did, but they were there according to the map, absent were the Scientologists this year and the usual masked protesters against them, masked because they...

For the past six months or so I have been meeting each week with a young Chinese economics scholar from mainland China, discussing life in the United States, and helping him with his English which is excellent as far as vocabulary and grammar, but rather dismal in the pronunciation department. This is my volunteer work contribution to the betterment of mankind, as I tend to avoid those typical volunteering activities such as "teaching children of prisoners to read", preferring instead, as has been my habit in other areas, to try to subvert the dominant paradigm.

    A HEN produced a live chick in a freak birth at a poultry farm in central Sri Lanka, a veterinary surgeon says. The vet in charge of the town of Welimada, PR Yapa, said the egg appeared to have incubated inside the hen for 21 days and the hen died when it gave birth to the chick. "I had only heard about such aberrations, but I was able to see it for myself today," Dr Yapa told AFP. He said the free-range farm owners alerted the local veterinary authorities after the highly unusual phenomenon and he performed a post-mortem examination...

    By now you probably know that when you enter a term into a Google box and press the Return key (sometimes incorrectly called the Enter key), Google will show you back results that will be different if President Usurper entered the same term, or even if another member of the forum with whom you agree on everything except of course the Zimmerman-Martin case entered it.

    I am putting together a photo album. One consisting of my own photographs taken by the DSLR camera I own. I've already created one album, paying ~ $42 for a book of 26 pages (13 sheets) of my color photographs. Expensive, but worth it. (The service, which I selected after thorough online investigation, was Adoramapix. I am not associated with them, and seeing the results I do recommend them, but if you know of a service that is less costly and as good, please do let us know.) The theme and title of my second photo album is to be...

    Ultimately, it is all my fault, my failure, my fall. I failed to persuade, failed to seduce, failed to sell. (I hate the concept of 'selling oneself', so prevalent in our culture, but it is what it is.) And it's my core that is responsible. My unchangeable core. It was my core that was rejected, despised, spat upon, accused, laid off from my job, told "I cannot love you". No Prozac, no therapy can change my core, they can only dull my senses, hypnotize me into accepting despair. I know what I'm talking about, the world has sent me a...

    Sally's husband was often abusive. One morning, over breakfast, Hank began yelling at her because she was on the phone instead of keeping him company. Later, after Hank went to work, Sally picked up his shirts from the laundry, ran some other errands for him, and decided to cook his favorite dish for dinner. Do you think Sally did the right thing? Sally, alas, believed that if she could only create an ideal loving home atmosphere, her husband's abusiveness would stop. Unfortunately, she was in fact rewarding her husband's negative behavior. In response to his outbursts, Hank found his chores...

    Every couple of years I would scour the Al Gore's most famous invention after climate for interesting music, sites like artistsdirect.com, garageband.com and others that don't exist anymore and where unsigned bands, or signed and little known artists uploaded their music, oftentimes quite good, occasionally brilliant.

    The latest Internet sensation is Lytro, the high-tech camera start-up with $50 million in venture capital financing that promises to launch a "picture revolution" by upending everything that we know about taking pictures. In other words, with this camera, you shoot first, focus later. And when you take the time to focus, your photo turns into an amazing work of 3D art with crisp, high-definition details. Lytro calls them living pictures, and claims that this movement from 2D to 3D photos is just as revolutionary as the movement from film to digital. Continued...

    Truth be told, a secret handshake was the only thing missing. There were odd one arm hugs, euphemism filled talk that would put the corporate Bullshit Bingo game to shame, rules, and rituals, all of which reminded me of the Catholic masses I attended as a boy, and the altar boys’ my age choreographed moves carrying an enormous Holy Book from one side of the altar to the other, and then, inexplicably, back again. Watching the proceedings I thought of Ralph Kramden and Ed Norton of the Honeymooners and their Loyal Order of Raccoons lodge. But there was nothing funny...

    CLINTON - Clinton police are looking for a male suspect who they believe is responsible for at least five thefts of women's underwear over the past two months. In several cases, the thefts took place while women were home, said Clinton Police Chief Mike Reidy. On one occasion, a male resident confronted the thief after he was caught in a home. "There was a tussle, and we tracked him for a while but lost him," Reidy said of the underwear thief. No weapon was displayed during the incident. Police are urging residents to take the string of thefts seriously. "It...

    As mobile communications and media devices proliferate, the nagging worry frequently goes unchallenged: Gadgets like iPods, cell phones and laptops produce an increasingly disconnected public sphere. This is a familiar critique -- last year, a fellow student expressed in the campus newspaper a similar dissatisfaction with the popularity of MP3 players. He argued that, lost in our private worlds of music, we fail to reach out and connect with one another. Certainly, I wonder about the social impact of new technology -- particularly, the contra...

    The U.S. economy has been working from a script that said "pause here until Iraq has been liberated." The pause is nearly over, so it's a good time to face up to the postwar state of the world. The technology sector is crucial to the economy, and personal computers to the tech sector -- and consumers and businesses no longer replace their PCs on cue. The U.S. computer industry will either deal with this fact or come screeching to a traumatic halt soon. Five years ago we were flooded with information; now we're drowning.

    If a picture is worth a thousand words, then a photo from a University of Wisconsin brochure tells us all we need to know about diversity in America. At the order of some clever administrator, the face of Diallo Shabazz, a black student, was digitally inserted into a sea of white faces to give the university a rainbow visage. Here we may see what the totemization of diversity has accomplished: deceit, quotas and ridiculous efforts at race consciousness.

But as the displays have become more sophisticated, more spectacular and more widely available, concerns have grown about the safe way to play with fire indoors.

    When guitarist/producer Ry Cooder returned to Cuba in 2001, he looked up Manuel Galban, a guitarist he calls "the last twanging man in Cuba." Mr. Galban, perhaps the island's greatest guitar player, is also something of an anomaly. He mastered the solid-body electric guitar in the 1950s, a time when few electric guitars were being imported from the U.S. And his musical sensibilities were nurtured during an era when Havana enthusiastically absorbed such distinctly American influences as doo-wop -- a trend that ended abruptly when Fidel Castro took power in 1959. Mr. Cooder enjoyed the biggest success of his career...
