Charles M. Schulz Museum pays tribute to pop culture & imaginary places
When I was a kid I would read the comics in the Los Angeles Times every day. There was an entire page of them, and they had all kinds: Broom Hilda , Rex Morgan , Andy Capp , Wizard of Id , and many more. One comic that did not appear on the comics page was Peanuts .

WonderCon 2010 winds up being unexpectedly fun
Here’s the rub: I don’t know anything about this stuff. I have never gone to “fan” type conventions, and I don’t really read a lot of comic books. At least, not since I was 15. I don’t even really watch TV anymore, and rarely go to the movies. When I’m not working, I spend most of my time these days...

One Exhibit to Rule Them All
As I walked out of the theater after seeing The Return of the King, I was struck by a sudden, depressing thought: next winter, there will be no new movie. I had grown accustomed to my yearly dose of Frodo and the rest of the Fellowship. True, I could buy the DVDs with extended versions and tons of extras...

Horses and Hot Dogs: The not-so-glamorous life of a "Hidalgo" extra
The second night was definitely easier than the first. I think I had a fellow extra girl lace me up, so my organs all stayed where they were supposed to. The second night had a scene where Frank (Viggo) rides out on Hidalgo into the center of the ring. But the horse has other ideas, and does not stop...

Extra! Extra! Poor young girl forced to wear a corset and butt pillows!
Ah, "Hidalgo": the story of a man and his horse! The second film to be released by Disney with a star from the "Lord of the Rings" trilogy, though actually the first to be filmed (or at least start filming). I was just about to wrap up my month-long stint as a Krispy Kreme doughnut girl at the El Capitan...
