It's hard to imagine the LA Weekly without Arts Editor Tom Christie. When I first met him in the mid-80s his hair was still black and he was working for California Magazine editor Harold Hayes (Esquire) at what eventually morphed into Los Angeles Magazine.

Christie has been an institution at LA Weekly for 15 years, supervising coverage of books, film, theater and art; he's the last of the old guard to leave since editor Drex Heikes took the helm. Christie now has time to finish his documentary on artist Richard Serra (who memorably appeared on Charlie Rose recently, with Chuck Close) and finish a screenplay adaptation of A.W. Hill's Nowhere-Land.

    The arts coverage and Jonathan Gold are the best reasons to read the Weekly. I look forward to seeing what he's going to do with Nowhere-Land. Tried to buy it for Alex Proyas back in the day at Paramount. It's a terrific story that could work in a big-movie way.
