Where Shall We Meet? Samuel French and The Pikey

Where Shall We Meet Samuel French and The Pikey 1

It’s hard not to get caught up in Pilot Season when you live in this town. The overnight successes, the ingénue, the character actor, the gay best friend and the not-quite-as-pretty-as-the-lead (but works a lot more in commercials) of the next smash hit live and work among us.

It could be you. You studied acting. You do have a Scene prepared, right? No? Get thee to Samuel French!

Fruigees, A Fruit And Veggie Vegan Pudding

Fruigees, A Fruit And Veggie Vegan Pudding 1

Pudding is one of the best sweet treats around. There’s something classic about it: saying the word pudding pulls up images of 1950s homemakers preparing these choclatey or vanillay desserts for guests. More recently, pudding brings up images of a brightly sweatered Bill Cosby sharing little anecdotes on the joys of eating this treat. You don’t really think of fruits or vegetables when you think of pudding, though. Sometimes fruit goes with pudding but, as mentioned, you think of chocolate and vanilla when you think of pudding. LA based food folk Fruigees are changing this image of the treat by making fruit and vegetable based vegan puddings that are just as delightful as you imagine–but they’re based in a very healthy, wholesome place.

At The Presses With Ophelia Chong

At The Presses With Ophelia Chong 5

“I found them at an estate sale for five bucks,” Ophelia Chong explains as she shuffles through newspapers marked November 23, 1963. They are mostly papers from Los Angeles and have headlines like “ASSASSIN NAMED” and “HIGHLIGHTS IN LIFE AND PRESIDENCY OF JOHN FITZGERALD KENNEDY.” There’s even a simple headline of “MARTYR.” The papers are deep portals into simpler times with articles on the dangers of crosswalks, the sport of cheerleading, and typewriter classes, all of which are complicated by an American tragedy: the loss of a president. Ophelia is using these newspapers as the basis for a letterpressing project that she has been working on, one that meditates on America, tragedy, conspiracy, and violence.
