I move a lot, though usually just two miles at a time. I’ve lived all over the west side and while getting to know a new neighborhood is fun, finding movers is not always (never) fun.
Unpakt.com has a nice interface that allows you to select the size of your home, the distance to your new home, and the amount of boxes and specific types of furniture you have to move. I tried it out and it works great. Your results show prices as well as user ratings for each mover. I’m about ready to move again now.

The JazzReggae Festival at UCLA this Memorial Day Weekend just got pretty interesting. Santigold and Common have announced that they will be appearing on “Jam Day” while Ziggy Marley will be appearing on Reggae Day. Do I have to choose? Apparently not. I do need to buy a ticket for each day though.
If for whatever reason you are not headed to Burbank to witness Lynette Skynyrd this Saturday, you may want to consider taking in a classic downtown. Details below.
This Saturday, May 11th at 8:30pm, Downtown Los Angeles’ Electric Dusk Drive-In movie theatre will screen Ridley Scott’s Oscar Winning film Alien. Starring Segourney Weaver, John Hurt, and Tom Skerritt, Alien follows the crew of a spaceship that has been invaded by an alien life-form. Alien marks the second film of EDDI’s 2013 Spring and Summer Film Series at their new venue, The City Market of LA. The summer schedule includes major hits and classics like Inception, All About Eve, E.T., Vertigo, and Little Shop of Horrors.
Tickets are $10 online, or $13 (cash only) at the door. A full snack bar featuring BBQ, candy, popcorn, and a large selection of beverages is available. Trivia, giveaways, and prizes are a staple among Electric Dusk’s pre-show events.
I don’t think I need to give anyone the hard sell here. Look at the name, look at that photo. If you can get to Burbank, cancel your plans for Saturday and go here instead. You may want to get out before that Honky Stomp starts though.
