Off-Ramp's Kevin Ferguson took on Public Art...

And not everyone agreed with me. Kevin Ferguson here. If you're subscribed to Off-Ramp's newsletter, you've already seen this rant of mine from last Friday:

The Scarlet Letter: Restaurant grades reconsidered

If you’ve eaten in an L.A. County restaurant this century, you’ve seen them: the letter grades handed out by the public health department. They seem to be popular, and have just been adopted in New York City. But how did they get there … and more importantly, do they really keep diners safe?

Kevin Ferguson here. No reason for this other than the good mood it put me in, hope it's contagious. Happy Friday, all.

Recommendation for this week: Life During Wartime

Kevin Ferguson, Off-Ramp producer, writes: I saw Life During Wartime this past weekend. I'm by no means a fan of Todd Solondz's work. Welcome to the Dollhouse tried my patience, Happiness seemed uncomfrotable for it's own sake, and I can't remember what happened in Storytelling.

Last Night: Chicken Stock!

It took well over two months, six and a half leftover roasted chickens, two leeks, three carrots, three bay leafs and an onion but I made chicken stock from scratch last night. That's most of the stock itself above, relaxing in an ice bath post-simmer.

A Lakers-Inspired Solution for Rave Security

Kevin Ferguson here. I'm sure by now you've heard about the tragedy at the LA Coliseum last June: Sasha Rodriguez, 15, died after attending the Electric Dasiy Carnival (EDC), a massive electronic music festival.
