I figured the Eagle Rock Music Festival presented a great opportunity to experiment with Tubepress. So here's the deal. If you shot video at Eagle Rock Music Festival last Saturday, and if you've loaded the video to YouTube ... You can tag that video with the term "Eagle Rock Music Festival 2009", and the TubePress software should automatically find your video and plug it into this website... http://eaglerockmusic.nelanews.net/   Please give it a try!!! (There is one minor bug:  Some false positives that I managed to bump to the end of each group.)

Capoeira under a full moon is a magical, mystical experience:  The pulsing rhythm, the chanted song, the electric energy of the movements. Here is some video from Capoeira Brasil Eagle Rock // Xtreme Training Center's demonstration of Capoeira Brasil at the Eagle Rock Music Festival, October 3, 2009.

What is the Eagle Rock Business Model? It's a unique, usually individually owned, business that offers good style and good value. That's my definition--what might yours be? Cacao Mexicatessen                     Another long-awaited restaurant has opened, the Cacao Mexicatessen at 1576 Colorado Blvd. Eagle Rock, CA, 90041. Located next door to Trader Joe's and Eufloria in a very suitable hacienda-style building, there is outdoor seating behind the vines on the covered porch and you will smell the homey scent of fresh-made tortillas cooking on the griddle as you approach the door. Inside, it looks like it's been here for 50 years, but it just opened in the last couple of days. A good sign, I think, and the business looks brisk already. Check out photos, the menu, and contact info at www....

Why should you buy a house in Eagle Rock, CA? Because you get the best of several worlds in this quiet little corner of the great metropolis of Los Angeles, CA: a home town, neighborly community with access to the jobs, culture, and amenities that a big city offers, as well as minutes away from hiking trails and the Angeles National Forest.  Once its own city, Eagle Rock was annexed to the City of Los Angeles in 1923, in order to secure access to the City's Owens Valley water resources. Consequently, Eagle Rock has the municipal services that a large city provides like the Department of Water & Power, police, fire, transportation, and public schools. We've retained our original City Hall which was built in 1922, and several other architecturally and historically significant buildings in...

What's the story with short sales? (Again, a short sale is where the owner owes more to the bank than they can get for the property, so they can't sell unless the lender agrees to take less). Are they working out for people? In Eagle Rock, 17 of the 47 active listings are short sales, 7 of the 22 properties in escrow are short sales, and 1 of the 9 closed sales so far this year was a short sale.  So the percentage of each goes from 36% of the actives to 32% of the pendings to 11% of the solds are short sales. Contrast that with foreclosures: 7 of the 47  active listings, 9 of the 22 pending, and 5 of the 9 closed sales are REO. The percentage goes like this: 15% of the actives, 41% of the pending, and 55% of the closed are bank-owned. So there are a number of short sales that try, few t...

Good morning! Good week! Starting off February, there are 47 single family homes showing as active on the market in the 90041 zip code, with 15 of them declaring themselves as short sales, and 7 as REO, or Real Estate Owned, which means foreclosure. So, almost one third of what is on the market is subject to lender approval, with another 15% bank-owned, which leaves us with 53% of what is on the market today as "normal" sales. In truth, several more of the "normal" sales are under duress. What does this mean?1. A short sale is a swamp sale, by and large. By that I mean trying to do one is like slogging through a swamp, where your most likely result is that you'll get mired in mud, maybe even quicksand, and you'll come away with a peculiar rotten smell that's hard to wash off. It is subj...

It's a gorgeous day, come over for some holiday vibe and stroll through the holiday sale at the Center for the Arts, Eagle Rock at 2225 Colorado Blvd.  Los Angeles CA 90041. There's free parking at B of A.  We'll have live music starting with Harp and ending with Acoustical Rock and a little piano, flute, and folk in between & yummy holiday treats!  Over 20 participating vendors, so you can get great gifts for yourself and others!  Only bummer, the clown is sick, so no face painting....but clowns are scary anyway!  However.....we might have a Mime show up.....and of course the bunny will make an appearance.  Hope you will too!

Beaujolais Nouveau is a very mild, light-bodied wine made from Gamay Noir à Jus Blanc grape, better known simply as Gamay.   By French law, Beaujolais Nouveau cannot be released before midnight on the third Thursday in November. So it follows, that the third Thursday of November has grown into a day of celebration:  The first uncorking of the first wine of the season. Local French restaurant Cafe Beaujolais in Eagle Rock hosts an annual Beaujolais Noveau celebration that has become a tradition for many residents.   More on Beaujolais Day: Here and Here  And MORE, with pics by PAT BARR

  Market Index A market index of above 1.20 is a seller’s market, between 0.80 to 1.20 is a balanced market, and below 0.80 is a buyer’s market.   The Market Index struggled back up two points to 0.32 compared to 0.30 for September.   New Listings  - Eighty-eight new listings, down from 172 new listings in September, compared to 141 last October.  We had many more new listings in September than last year so perhaps this evened things out.   New Pending Listings  - Forty-two listings entered escrow, down from 47 in September, compared to 28 in October, 2007.   Pending Ratio – >Almost doubled to 0.48 this month compared to 0.27 in September. A year ago it was 0.20.    Listing Inventory - Three hundred twenty- four homes on the market, down slightly from September but sharply down from las...
