i couldnt find the LA thread

Health insurance rip off lying FDA big bankers buying
Fake computer crashes dining
Cloning while they're multiplying
Fashion shoots with Beck and Hanson
Courtney Love, and Marilyn Manson
You're all fakes
Run to your mansions
Come around
We'll kick your ass in

ASH NERVE wrote:you never have to tap to exit Metro stations. You can just go through the turnstiles.

you do have to tap to get on any bus or train, and you have to tap if you're making any transfer, but you're right in that on many lines there's no gate that forbids you from entering if you haven't tapped.

like Sissy said, it's pretty easy to get away with. I've only had my tap card checked maybe 10-15 times in my 4 years of riding Metro almost every day.

i usually notice it on high volume commuting transfer areas, especially the Red Line stop in North Hollywood. sometimes on the Gold Line too.

my friend bought a monthly senior citizen card for cheaper than regular fare and uses it on everything and it's never been an issue. not exactly advocating it though because i did see someone get stopped for doing that once.

i take Metro so much that it's worth it to me to get the monthly pass, so i have no need to sneak around anymore ;)


back when i would ride the metro i think the police checked our tap cards like every other day
Never knowingly eaten an ass.

went once, it was a sketchy place. shows and beer were really cheap though. lot of people seemed to liked it. they might not have even charged a cover most nights

Los Angeles Cinema Calendar - February 2019

Image
*clockwise from top left: SPACE IS THE PLACE (John Coney, 1974), KILLER OF SHEEP (Charles Burnett, 1978), THE IRON GIANT (Brad Bird, 1999), LETTER FROM SIBERIA (Chris Marker, 1957)

February Highlights:

2/1 - 2/2: Likely the greatest American animation director of our time, Brad Bird, will be stopping by a couple screenings of his work this weekend at the Aero Theatre - The Iron Giant on Friday, and a double feature of both Incredibles films on Saturday. (As a bonus, the Aero will also be showing Ratatouille for free on 2/10, but without Bird in attendance.)

2/2 - 9/14: We don't normally promote gallery openings...but when we do, they're related to exactly what we try and promote here - cinema! Time is Running Out of Time: Experimental Film and Video from the L.A. Rebellion and Today presents early short works of Black filmmakers and video artists in Los Angeles. The show opens Saturday, is on view through September 14, and is presented in conjunction with Soul of a Nation: Art in the Age of Black Power 1963-1983 on view at The Broad from March 23 to September 1, 2019.

2/4 - 2/27: Don't have a day job but still want to get your cinema on? The New Beverly is launching a brand new Weekday Matinees series this month, showcasing Black Filmmakers each Monday @ 2:00PM (with films like Set it Off and Devil in a Blue Dress), and Hepburn and Tracy films each Wednesday @ 2:00PM (Woman of the Year, Desk Set). A 35mm print for $6? Can't think of a better way to spend a weekday afternoon.

2/5, 2/12: The Skirball Cultural Center will celebrate Black History Month with two excellent entries in the Black Cinema canon: Charles Burnett's Killer of Sheep and Ousmane Sembène's Black Girl, both of which screen for free as part of their Tuesday matinees series.

2/7 - 2/28: Beginning this month and continuing throughout March, the American Cinematheque will be presenting an extensive series of Luchino Visconti's films, including canonical masterpieces like The Leopard and Rocco and His Brothers (next month!), alongside underseen works like his 4-hour epic, Ludwig (on 35mm!). Screenings begin at the Egyptian this month, and expand to the Aero in March.

2/8 - 2/20: This month, the Red Bull Music Festival will be presenting Center Channel - a film program including a number of great films from The Decline of Western Civilization to Wigstock: The Movie, and even Space is the Place with the Sun Ra Arkestra live scoring the film!

2/9 - 2/16: The Secret Movie Club continues its excellent year of programming 35mm midnights and weekend matinees at the Vista Theatre, with new entries in their ongoing Akira Kurosawa and 70s cinema series (Ikiru and Steven Spielberg's Duel, respectively). Also, if you can somehow manage a midnight double feature, they'll be showing Before Sunrise and Before Sunset on the night of Feb 9th, with Before Midnight screening the next weekend on the 16th.

2/13 - 2/22: The Now Instant Image Hall in Highland Park will be showing some rare cinematic treats this month (as is their wont): among many others, keep an eye out for Chantal Akerman's News From Home on the 13th, Chris Marker's Letter From Siberia on the 20th, and Billy Woodberry's Bless Their Little Hearts on the 22nd.

2/15 - 2/17: UCLA Festival of Preservation will take place at the Hammer's Billy Wilder Theater screening a large swath of restored films that span the 1930's to the 1990's, including Hearst Newsreels on various US Presidents, a Laurel and Hardy program, and a Classic Animation program featuring animated films on 16mm and 35mm.

2/15 - 2/21: The Aero will also host an exclusive week-long run of Jean-Luc Godard's latest experimental cinema essay, the first-ever recipient of a "Special Palme d'Or" at Cannes - The Image Book.

2/17: La Collectionneuse and Acropolis Cinema present a double feature of Tsai Ming-Liang films - his latest, Your Face, and the 2009 film Visage at the Downtown Independent.

2/28: To end out the month, the Alex Theatre in Glendale will be showing William Friedkin's masterful 1971 crime thriller, The French Connection, on celluloid!

As always, PM me if you want to be added to the monthly mailing list!

I've used that (years ago), but the trick is to call the hotel you're interested in that's advertised and ask them if they'll undercut the app (they get a bigger chunk anyway). It removes the weird restrictions of using the app, too.
