This store is small, but that has never stopped me from finding any of the movies that I need. New releases go quickly as they do at many video stores, but the classics are here too. I even found "When Thugs Cry" -- probably not a film you find in every video store. They are usually my choice for movies.
I used to work at Bed Bath and Beyond and got well acquainted with the store. The management appears genuinely interested in satsifying the customers. The store is layed out nicely and the employees are curteous and helpful in pointing you to your destination. Prices may be a little high, but discount coupons come in the mail to be applied to any shopping trip there for previous customers.
I think I was mostly impressed by the size and location of this huge fun center. It's located right off of Burbank Blvd on the 405, in fact, you can see it well from the freeway. I didn't like golfing next to the freeway so much, but the course is fun and the arcade is one of the bigger and better ones that I have seen at a fun center.
I had a wedding invitation framed for my Dad and got it done here. I can't believe how nicely it was done and how little it cost. I honestly thought a custom framing job would cost a lot more than that. It was elegant and it was even ready sooner than they said it would be. I would certainly go there again.
I wasn't too impressed with Apple One when I signed up there. I scored very high on their tests apparently, but they never did find me substantial work. Maybe the job market was slow at the time, but I got much more work from Sage Staffing and Select Personnel Services in the Santa Clarita Valley. I would recommend those two over Apple One.
This is the best agency I have ever used. It is run very efficiently and got me some of the highest paying temporary positions I have ever had. I worked in a call center for a while full-time which really helped right before I started school. The management is also fabulous -- Mark McComb is very warm and personable.
As a student for a while, I had odd times when I could work and temporary dates of availability, but they worked around my schedule and found me some great work. The screening process was thorough, but painless, and they were able to recommend me for better jobs for having completed the testing. Great company to work for!
I went to a performance of Miracle on 34th Street around Christmas time last year and though I enjoyed the performance, it was by no means spectacular. It's a very low budget theater and that comes across in the shows it puts on. I guess the theater is on hiatus for now, but hopefully it will come back. With some more funding, it could turn into a great place.
I can't say enough good things about this theater. Absolutely every single performance I have been to has been a professional and entertaining show. They recycle some of the cast, but with their professional acting skills and costumes, you'd never know it! I go see the Christmas Carol every year and they always change it up a little bit, so you never know exactly what you're getting.
I have quite a few friends that attend Cal Arts and they are amazingly talented and passionate about what they do, whether it be music, or animation, or film... The classical music recitals are some of my favorite events. Even though they are not very well publicized, they are worth attending, especially when held in the Roy O. Disney Hall. It is an extremely liberal school, too much so for my tastes, but I have seen some amazing talent graduate among my friends.
