The First Annual (we hope) Long Beach Zombie Walk was an enormous success last night. Somewhere between 100 and 200 zombies inched there way down 4th from Portfolio Cafe to the Art Theater, moaning and dragging limbs and body parts along with them.
The event was organized by Logan Crowe of Mondo Celluloid and The Art Theater, and was A LOT of fun! A full slide show of the event is all the way down and you grab the embed code of that show to drop on you web page, or… Continue

Seems a bit trivial considering the day's real news events but thought we would let anyone who was planning to venture down to Second Street this week that there is major construction going on on both sides of the street. Both sides of Second Street are closed to parking from 10am today through 6pm on Thursday. Additional parking lots behind businesses on Second Street are still open to the public.
On a trip to bank this morning I noticed… Continue

The California Supreme Court announced today that they have voted to uphold the Same Sex Marriage Ban voted into law by Proposition 8 in November. The court has decided to allow the 18,000+ existing marriages to stand but has rejected an argument from gay rights activists that the ban revised the California constitution’s equal protection clause to such a dramatic degree that it first needed the Legislature’s approval.
We are happy for the estimated 18,000 gay couples who tied the… Continue
