Ferris Bueller is back. At least for a Super Bowl ad. "Life moves pretty fast. If you don't stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it." Check out this teaser:
- Plastic parts of one Studio City woman's car have been melting. The culprit? Potentially her neighbor's energy-efficient windows.

- Wu-Tang Clan member the RZA is doing an in-store appearance at the Santa Monica Promenade Apple Store today at 6 p.m.
- Could Doctor Who Matt Smith be moving to L.A.?
