Re: “Hidden oasis: A quick getaway can be found at the tranquility of Montaña de Oro State Park

Karen, I hate to spoil your fun, but Montana de Oro is a State Park. The reason it felt like a gold mine for rock collecting while you were there is that all features are protected - rocks, creatures, shells, plants, etc. - for the benefit of the ecosystem and all visitors and inhabitants. Please return the rocks you took, and do not encourage others to remove anything from a State Park. Yes, enjoy visiting, hiking, taking photos, and touching the rocks. But please leave them where you find them before you go home! Thanks!

Re: “Bingeable: Twin Peaks: The Return, 2017

"The best-case scenario is that it will direct them back to the original series, which still remains a far superior show."

You reckon, Chris? I didn't grow up with the original series, so it goes without saying I didn't watch it in the proper context that it required. But my idea of Lynch at the peak of his powers is Lost Highway, his relentlessly nasty and acid scud missile from 1997. Not 1990-era Twin Peaks.

I found the first two seasons to be pretty lightweight and spineless. I enjoyed the warmth and some of the quirks, but the relentless cornball cheesiness and hokey cherry-pie folksiness became very grating very quickly. Comfort food only satisfies for so long before you want to start throwing chillies into the mix.

I say give us something new, radical, and transcendent. Each to their own, of course, but I don't watch Lynch for cosiness or familiarity. I watch Lynch because I want to come away from the experience with my head floating 6 feet above my body (like the charred ghost in the jail cell).

Re: “David Settino Scott pays homage to the ultimate form of protest at the Steynberg Gallery through March

With the emerging youth political movements around guns and immigration, would you consider SLO High as the location? The impact on young students would have long-lasting effect.

Re: “'Hostiles' delivers a gripping Western tale of the clash between Native Americans and their conquerors

This film is set in 1892, a time when the Indian wars were over, but there's a scene where a Commanche war party massacres a settler family, something that no longer occurred in the 1890's.. The last bands of hostile Commanches surrendered incrementally through the 1870's & early 1880's & by the end of that decade, the herds of bison had been all but exterminated & the nomadic warrior tribes that depended on them for sustenance were starved into submission . Well before 1892, the f the last holdouts had laid down their arms & were placed on reservations. Hence, the movie starts out with a historical error.

Re: “Leisurenauts: Three days in Cali's retirement mecca

No one from California, unless you're recently from LA, calls our state Cali. It's like W.Bush calling nuclear "nucular" or calling a realtor "realitor". You say it enough, people begin to think it's a real word.
