Wow you never know what you had until it's gone. I moved to CA a couple of months ago but before IRead More moved I knew I would be living in this community. I was an avid reader of this patch for over a year to keep up with what was going on here while I was still on the east coast. I knew what middle school my daughter was going to attend and noticed the last name similar to who I was hoping would be my daughter's 8th grade math teacher when I applied to the Humanities Academy at Walter Reed but didn't think anything of it. Now I discover there is a relation between the two. BTW, she got in Humanities and yes Ms. S is her 8th grade math teacher...woo hoo! Reading this patch made me more comfortable with moving across the country because I felt part of this community without even being here. Now that I'm here and pretty much settled in and getting my routine together and my daughter has made a gazillion new friends at Reed I come to the site and discover it's time to say goodbye to Mike. Mike, even though we don't know each other you were like my comfort food when I would get anxiety about moving across the country. So I thank you and just know your talent and warmth reached me all the way across the country and now that I'm here I will continue to follow you on your new adventure (already subscribed..ha!). In the words of that great poet...Obi Wan Kenobi..."May the force be with you!"

What a sad, somber event it was! Neil didn't have much to work with, but his song/dance number forRead More the choreographers was tabu!!!!

It was sad, almost as sad as what is happening to The Patch in Studio City

What a mish-mash of winners? Bryan Cranston NOT getting it, but Sheldon winning AGAIN? And theyRead More purposefully skunked the Netflix series because they don't want to give an award to something that never actually APPEARED on a channel!

It's just that a majority of the readers LIKE this coverage, and they are locals, and they are aboutRead More our neighbors, and I don't think we overdo it, but we don't publish their addresses and we don't say what time Miley Cyrus goes to Panera Bread every week, and we still get criticized by the few.

Celebrity sighting stories are also good for local business owners. People will frequent a businessRead More in hopes of catching a glimpse of their fave personality, or they might just like saying they ate at the same place Miley Cyrus eats. My daughter had friends in from out of town, and they wanted to do just that - go to the shops and restaurants they had heard certain "stars" go to. I don't quite get it, but who am I to say what other people find entertaining? A note about Beiber: I think he's acting like a jerk, too. But I also know from his documentary, that he IS talented and worked hard with a discipline unusual for his age in order to get where he is today. Unfortunately, that maturity seems to have slipped away. On the other hand, his frontal lobe won't fully develop until the age of 23. Imagine having millions of dollars and the power that comes with it at such a young and impulsive age.

Justin goes to my dry cleaner, my favorite sushi place, and my Bed Bath & Beyond....very fewRead More places like that where people can say that. He's always been polite the few times I've talked to him, but he has been a brat at other places, like when he peed in a bucket in Manhattan http://shermanoaks.patch.com/groups/arts-and-entertainment/p/how-will-justin-bieber-mop-up-his-reputation-after-this

I'd love to meet Mark. I'm sure we're cousins somewhere along the line....And the fact that he's gotRead More twins! Two sets in our family!

Just saw her a few days ago on a My Three Sons episode. She looks wonderful.
Dave Gray August 28, 2013 at 08:45 am
Um, hello? Trekkers anyone? She's a classic to them!

If Time Warner would put an end to their sword fight with CBS, maybe we could actually SEE thisRead More stupid show.
BMW - It's a lot to like!

I would be remiss if I didn't mention two more advertising items of interest. The most ironic adRead More campaign ever -- in view of sharing phone records with the NSA, Verizon certainly made its point with its "Share Everything" campaign. As for the greatest progress made by any company as far as commercials is concerned, Allstate gets kudos. Their newest addition is sensational. It features a little girl explaining everyday scenes of life. Her voice narrates, "There are man-eating sharks in every ocean, but we still swim." This one is a winner! The point being that there is risk involved in everything we hold dear to our hearts (we still play in the rain). Congratulations to Allstate for shelving that old voiceover relic. This one has it all and captures the audience immediately
Geraldo Cruz June 27, 2013 at 01:23 pm
Wow I hadn't seen that commercial with the little girl chopping off her hair. That was reallyRead More touching.
Irene DeBlasio June 27, 2013 at 03:07 pm
@G.Cruz So many of the foreign made commercials are more meaningful. Sort of like the differenceRead More between a Michelin 3-star restaurant and McDonald's -- we chew them up quickly and attempt to brand viewers on the brain. We salivate because Big Food is our number one lobby (followed by Big Pharma). Hope you looked at Evian roller-skating babies too -- fresh, young, sweet and clever without obvious intrusive CGI tricks.
