JACKSON BROWNE, ISSUE 17, EDITOR’S LETTER

I remember the first time I heard Bob Dylan’s poem, “Last Thoughts on Woody Guthrie.” I was sitting on my living room floor with the just-released Bob Dylan Bootleg Series which had come out in 1991. I was floored, literally. I was on the floor, liner notes in hand, not noticing that the sun had […]

SARAH SILVERMAN, Issue 14, Editor’s Letter

Did you ever have something you just loved so much as a kid that it changed your whole world? A car? A drum set? For me, it was a motorcycle. A 1982 Honda XL250R Dual Sport bike with a Pro-Link Suspension. God, I loved that motorcycle. But let me go back a bit. Growing up, […]

WILL FORTE, Issue 12, Editor’s Letter

I remember my first sleepover at Scott Maginnis’ house.  Scott and I met in kindergarten, and have been friends ever since. Sleepovers were a big deal for me, because my house was under pretty strict rule, and spending the night at a friends’ house held the promise of late night dessert, no bedtime and other […]

MARTIN SHORT, Issue 11, Editor’s Letter

How do you bring up kids in this world? Seriously. Facebook bullying, instant access to every bit of media–good bad and scary, prescription meds, drunk driving, text driving, and hey, when you get out of the college that you sacrificed your childhood to get into, there are no jobs waiting for you.  We get our […]

STACY PERALTA, Issue 10, Editor’s Letter

I am going to write another column about skateboarding. It’s not that I am obsessed with the sport, or trying to hang on to my youth desperately.  No, this particular missive concerns passing the sport on to future generations.  My daughter is 7, and she is starting to skate a little bit, mostly because dad […]

LAURA DERN, Issue 09, Editor’s Letter

Over scrutinizing can kill any idea. The self-critic in all of us is our own worst enemy, and here is why: we have very little perspective when anything new is attempted. How many great ideas have gone into the dustbin before any kind of gestation period takes place? How many drawings were scribbled out or […]

JUDD APATOW, Issue 08, Editor’s Letter

High school was not easy for me. I began my tenure at Fullerton Union High School a shade under 5 feet tall, 98 pounds, and with a broken leg.  I fell down the stairs on day two, and never really quite recovered. Every high school has its defined groups, whether they are freaks, or geeks, […]
