It's no secret that parking in the city is a bitch. So we've enlisted local parking guru and author of Finding the Sweet Spot, David La Bua, to dish out weekly tips on navigating the ins and outs of city parking.

Thanks so much for voting for your favorite local Etsy store! We had a bunch of great entries - all of which inspired us to be crafty! But it was Rabbit Foot Fern who won the popular vote with her cute brand of hand-printed cards. I mean, how adorable is this whale anniversary card?

For British-born Paul William Scott Anderson – not to be confused with Studio City native Paul Thomas Anderson, the five-time Oscar nominee behind Boogie Nights and Magnolia – the decision to direct Resident Evil: Afterlife, due Friday, was inspired, at least in part, by a fortuitous encounter with James Cameron.
