Weekends Not Going That Well: Guests This Week Include National Guard


 Info
-Newsom declares state of emergency in L.A., deploys National Guard 

So, the peaceful protests of Saturday escalated throughout Saturday to straight up rioting and looting. And let's not forget damages to businesses that in no way deserve to be set on fire or broken into.

The people straight up stealing and destroying property aren't helping, they're human garbage.

Don't forget there's now a curfew in effect and may last a few days, you can be arrested for being out an about in LA after 8pm. Be sure to check social media on updates.


State Of Emergency Declared In Los Angeles County, National Guard To Be Deployed To City Of LA

Live updates: Curfews enacted around the country amid protests 

Editorial

We're also kind of amazed at some of the reports of many of the protestors general stupidity thinking that cops wouldn't fire tears gas and non-lethal rounds at them. The LAPD either doesn't care or can't differentiate between peaceful protestors and those rioting. But those stupid enough to keep doing this and walk alongside those who are hurting the community will hopefully get arrested.

And we'd like to thank every a-hole taking photos with their smart phones like anyone cares. As the LA Times and professional photographers are just better at it than you. But, keep taking them for your own sense of accomplishment. Those photos are going to prove what a million other people have taken photos of.

The Egyptian Theatre: A Netflix Original

Yup, Netflix bought The Egyptian Theatre. After some controversy on what that would mean for local fans of cinema it all came to a close today. Now, it's not bad news, but your probably not going to see any week long film festivals like you use to.

-American Cinematheque is sticking around and runs the theater Fri-Sunday.
-Netflix runs the theater Mon -Thursday for premieres and showing their own stuff.
-Netflix is putting up the cash for renovating the theater at some point down the line.
-The influx of cash means more special screenings and events are now possible for the cinematheque.
-How much did Netflix pay for it? They won't say. Estimates are in the tens of millions.
-The Aero Theatre was not part of the deal, so cinematheque is still in full control of it.

You can read up even more with a great back history on the theater below.

Netflix to put a new spin on L.A.'s classic Egyptian Theatre

Be Careful, We Suggest Waiting To Go Out

-L.A. County can reopen restaurants, barbershops, salons, Newsom says 
 We get it, it sucks to stay inside for so long, but we suggest waiting to get haircuts and what not until we see numbers saying Covid cases are going down.

If you recall the plan was to re-open everything in July and it ain't July.

 -Here is what can now reopen in L.A. County, and here is what is still closed

And once again we suggest supporting local businesses with curbside pick-up or delivery, but going inside is yet to be proven safe.

You're free to do what you want, we just want readers to be safe and make LA a place where we can all do things again, just when it's okay too.

Please, keep wearing the masks.

We Finally Get The Legend of the Stardust Brothers

It was at the start of the month that we're were hoping we could get The Legend of the Stardust Brothers stateside and Alamo On Demand has come through. You can rent it now as part of their Weird Wednesday collection. Your rental doesn't just come with this totally insane music video over story/plot film directed by the son of the creator of Astroboy, you also get Alamo's Experience Preshow and a little info boost of 8 minutes on the film on how it came to be.

-We love that bar where it rains on the inside.

Rent it for only $4.99

This is one you've got to watch with friends over Zoom or what not. A perfect batsh*t insane Japanese film and a so-bad-it's good classic.

What We Found On The Net Today: Clarence, Batman, Party Jerks & Lame Space Suits



 -Authorities crack down on illicit Hollywood Hills parties at short-term rentals 
What a bunch of jerks.

-Elon Musk’s SpaceX Suit Is Like a Tuxedo for the Starship Enterprise
Turns out the new duds are just for going up in the ship. If those astronaut wore them outside they'd just die. They don't have air or cooling systems. The suits can use touch screens though. Also, they kind of look dorky on those guys.

In any case, we hope for a successful mission this Saturday to the International Space Station.

Weekly What To Do: We Need More Vampire Vehicle Movies

THE CINEMADNESS MOVIE
FRIDAY, MAY 29 @ 8:30 PM PST
Secret Movie Club Netflix Party UNCUT GEMS
Sat, May 30, 2020
8:00 PM – 10:30 PM

The Safdie Brothers Uncut Gems starring Adam Sandler looked like a shoe-in for at least a best actor nomination for Sandler. But it’s possible many folks didn’t realize how the Safdie Brothers’ aggressively provocative look at one week in the life of Howie, a womanizing, addicted to gambling, jewelry store owning, Jewish hustler, would rub Jewish members of the Academy the wrong way.

Blood Rider

WORLD PREMIERE
Monday, June 1 at 7:00PM EST
At YouTube.com/WeAreOne
 
*No, it's not a vampire car racing movie or a motorcycle that drinks blood movie. However, here is a vampire motorcycle movie, I Bought a Vampire Motorcycle.

Amidst a blood shortage crisis and standstill traffic most hours of the day in Nigeria, it can take over 24 hours to transport blood to patients in critical need. Joseph, one of the city's motorcycle "blood riders,” can deliver blood to hospitals in under an hour. For mothers in labor, this is often the difference between life and death.
