The L.A. Times, for which I critique television, has torn down its webwalls. Try http://www.calendarlive.com/tv/lloyd/ to get to my recent pieces; I think that should work, but as I've only tried it from this computer, I won't swear to it. Deeper archives will still cost you. Kingsize Maybe is up for an L.A. Weekly music award; given how few people have heard or heard of us, however, we must be accounted rank outsiders. And I am up for a couple of L.A. Press Club awards, one for the Weekly (the sessionmen piece) and one for the Times, and it's nice of course just to be noticed. Also, the old Weekly Tom Waits piece, appears this month in the anthology "Innocent When You Dream: A Tom Waits Reader"; Karen's in there, too.

LopezBeatles.com (http://www.lopezbeatles.com) is now up, courtesy Lopez Beatle Bruce, though so far it only contains the pages already available here.
