  • Entry
    Looking for something to do this weekend? Bored? No way! Check out these must-do events around the city.
  • Entry
    There isn't any giant meteor (that we know of) headed towards Earth or Los Angeles, but if there were, it wouldn't be a very pretty picture for us Angelenos.
  • Entry
    A cinematic and geographic look at the movie capital of the world. This video takes us through time and across town to show us just a tiny slice of L.A. in film.
  • Entry
    With this song about living the big life in Beverly Hills, Weezer became celebrities themselves. Its the Los Angeles dream.
  • Entry
    OK, it isn't a music video. But Southern California music just isn't complete without Coachella! Here's a QUICK look at SoCal's annual music festival.
  • Entry
    The Red Hot Chili Peppers are associated with California with songs like "Dani California" and "Californication." But don't forget "Under the Bridge," which is all about Los Angeles.
  • Entry
    The Los Angeles Police Department has had a troubled history marred by violence and sometimes injustice. But its past isn't nearly as bad as its future as seen in this short film.
  • Entry
    "Guns N Roses" released "Welcome to the Jungle" in 1987, and it has been regarded as a metal classic ever since. The Los Angeles connection isn't too obvious, but it's there.
  • Entry
    "California" is a song about heading back to the Golden State by car from an unspecified location. The real question isn't where they are coming from, but rather, why did they ever leave?
  • Entry
    The next pick in our Video of the Day build up to the music special is Bob Seger's classic "Hollywood Nights." It is arguably one of the greatest songs about Los Angeles ever written.
  • Entry
    Don't panic: this is a music video, not a news update. With fire season getting under way, we can just be thankful that it isn't as bad as we see here.
  • Entry
    Brace yourself - we're going back to the early 90s. Sheryl Crow's "All I Wanna Do" was arguably the pop hit of 1995, and there's no denying that this song about life in L.A. is incredibly catchy.
  • Entry
    "Free Fallin'" is a classic song about heartbreak in the San Fernando Valley. In this old-school music video, Tom Petty takes us back to the Valley of yesterday.
  • Entry
    Each day until the SoCal music special, the Video of the Day will be featuring music videos and songs that have to do with Los Angeles. There is no better way to kick off the next two weeks than with Randy Newman's classic "I Love L.A."
  • Entry
    These awesome videos capture different slices of life in Los Angeles and Southern California. From a lazy day at the beach to a raging wildfire to a hectic freeway commute, these videos will resonate with anyone who has lived in SoCal.
  • Entry
    An insider's look at Topanga Canyon, a hidden, unknown, and perhaps forgotten neighborhood in the greater Los Angeles area.
  • Entry
    Don't let the headline fool you! Three unpaid furlough days each month are going to be painful for state workers, but the governor says they are necessary.
  • Entry
    Protesters of Arizona's controversial anti-illegal immigration law that went into effect today have blocked the intersection of Highland and Wilshire.
  • Entry
    The Tehachapi Wildfire has burned 25 structures and was only 25 percent contained as of Wednesday. The fire is just one of hundreds currently burning across the state as dry weather, heat, and summer storms come together to produce California's "fire season."
  • Entry
    City and state officials are responding to the salary upset in Bell by considering measures designed to increase transparency and cap salaries.
  • Entry
    When environmentalists and city officials talk about a greener future for Los Angeles, I'm not sure that this is what they had in mind. Meet Chlorofilia, the organic construct that will be Los Angeles in 100 years.
  • Entry
    The 2012 Olympic Games in London are exactly two years away. With the World Cup over, here's an introduction to the world's next great sporting event.
  • Entry
    Today, the Hollywood sign is a Los Angeles icon that represents the city's film culture.. But not too long ago, it was a decaying eyesore perched above the city for everyone to groan at.
  • Entry
    Some Videos of the Day are newsworthy; others have to do with an interesting person, or a city locale. This one certainly features an interesting character in a Los Angeles area, but it's mainly here because it is downright bizarre.
  • Entry
    The Los Angeles Police Department has had a troubled history marred by violence and sometimes injustice. But its past isn't nearly as bad as its future as seen in this short film.
  • Entry

    The KCET.org web team offers their choices for best L.A. eats under $10.
  • Entry

  • Entry
    A close look at Bamboo Charlie, a homeless man in Los Angeles who lives differently in a bamboo garden he created. "I made this little world. Charlie's little bamboo yard."
  • Entry
    Where's the beef? Nowhere near SoCal Connected anchor Val Zavala!
