Memo from the Desk of Marco Mannone to the Desk of Jeremy Pollack

/

Jeremy,

In trying to accommodate this issue’s “architectural” theme, as you know I have hatched the hair-brained scheme to live at the famous Chateau Marmont hotel for a few days. The initial purpose of this endeavor was to soak up the hotel’s vintage history, its French-inspired style, and to chew on the current brand of wildlife they house with pride. But, as the fan turns, the shit makes its way to it eventually. How naïve of me to imagine a dimension in which they would comp a room for a journalist (especially an unknown one) but they were willing to provide a private tour of the entire hotel by two of its managers. Quickly, and by no fault of their PR woman who has been more than gracious with me, the Hotel has been quick to brand my behind with a white-hot list of guidelines that I am legally obliged to follow.

Forth Magazine Issue #7

/

Editor’s Note:

One year in publication… Unbelievable! I’m continually amazed how life progresses, how time seems to “fly,” how people and ideas converge, develop, and flourish together into collective lives of their own. This being the anniversary edition of FORTH—still the only publication in Los Angeles to unite art, literature, and journalism—we thought it appropriate to present the edition as our official “State of the Union” address—an exploration of converging art forms, industries, and of course people.

Forth Magazine Issue #6

/

Editor’s Note:

Solid foundation, sound structure, and vision—key components of any worthy story, of any significant work of art, perhaps of all righteous creation.

The importance of structure and foundation is certainly a prominent theme in this issue of FORTH. We’ve been fortunate to feature best-selling author T.C. Boyle, whose dynamic construction of story and character is masterfully evident in his fiction. In this issue, we’ve published an excerpt from Boyle’s novel The Women, which happens to center on renowned architect Frank Lloyd Wright and the building and breakdown of Wright’s intimate relations. Forth editor Julia Ingalls also interviewed innovative architect Eric Owen Moss, whose prolific art and philosophy inspires a bold and beautiful message about the magnitude of structural composition.

The Photography of Gil Garcetti: Interview with the Photographer

/

It’s a beautiful Thursday afternoon in the Brentwood hills, peaceful and quiet as though I’m no longer in L.A. The Southwest-style clubhouse of the Riviera Country Club stands gallant and vast, like the home of a Columbian drug lord, and I’m here for the quarterly luncheon of the Saint John’s Retired Physician’s Association. In spite of my shadowy past as an amateur surgeon and street pharmacist, I am in fact here to interview the former Los Angeles District Attorney and now prominent photographer Gil Garcetti, who is today’s main speaker. But I’m sweating in the sun while taking these notes and must move toward the clubhouse. Suddenly, I wonder if there’s a no-denim policy here, as is customary among country clubs. I’m wearing blue jeans. The sign just outside the main entrance reads Proper Attire Required… Not sure exactly what that means.
