Kickstarter.com works for celebrities, too. Actor Ed Begley Jr. and his wife Rachelle Carson-Begley have successfully raised $25,000 for a Web series project titled On Begley Street. The occasionally “laugh out loud” program will document the couple’s efforts to build one of North America’s greenest and most sustainable homes.

Since perception in LA is everything, FishbowlLA imagines that some readers will adjust their EV habits so as to be seen at one of the three area locations included on Ford’s list of the 20 Cool Places to Charge Your Electric Vehicle. But not us.
We don’t care that Ford thinks it’s niftier to juice back up at the LA Convention Center, Fashion Island in Newport Beach or the Malibu Country Mart. No, as long as the contraption works, we’re fine if it’s at the back of a Boyle Heights 7/11, next to the broken restroom. Per the release:
Each [top 20] location was evaluated based on a variety of factors including proximity to a view or landmark or dining and shopping opportunities. Ford is tracking more than 3,000 public charge stations in 2011, and expects that figure to quadruple by the end of 2013, indicating that this is an exciting and dynamic time for electric vehicle infrastructure.
Tomorrow marks the release* of Kill the Messenger: The Media’s Role in the Fate of the World, a provocative new book by Armenian journalist and scholar Maria Armoudian (pictured). Along with being a doctoral candidate at USC, Armoudian hosts a KFPK radio program and freelances for major outlets.
Her Prometheus Books release takes an intricate look at the role played by the media in major international conflicts, with reporters sometimes helping (Ireland) and in other cases negatively fueling the rage and genocide (Rwanda, Bosnia). The five-part tome grew out of Armoudian’s research at USC.
