The few times I had been to the Quiet Woman prior to a recent lunch, I thought I was going to be crushed by all the people packed in there. After a night of sushi and sake, my friend and I thought it would be smart to get a nightcap at the Corona del Mar hot spot. We learned that ownership spent about $100,000 on renovations, and it was money well spent. The dining room is lighter and brighter, helped by rich tones on the walls, some etched glass dividing the rows of booths and stained glass replaced with clear panes.

A pair of Costa Mesa filmmakers have racked up their latest accolade with a first-place win at a Tennessee film festival. Vincent Masciale, director of “Official Selection,” and Natalie Masciale, the film’s producer, took home the first-place award Aug. 29 at the Brigand Shorts Film Festival in Chattanooga, Tenn., for their depiction of dueling filmmakers working on the same production. The two creators clash creatively in mid-production, which results in a film split into two genres and based on their real-life situation.

“In a digital world of instant gratification, there’s still no such thing as instant origami,” said Rodel Duldulao, crane in hand. He was one of the many visitors who stopped by the origami workshop Friday at the Main Mall of the Orange County Fair. During the workshop, fairgoers sat down for one-on-one tutoring with the several instructors who were on hand for the event. The tables were blanketed with various origami creations such as flowers, spinners, boxes and trademark cranes.

Nothing’s ever quite as it appears with Dinosaur Jr. For one thing, J. Mascis’ drawling vocals belie his emotional lyrics. And then there’s the unusual combination of Black Sabbath, Velvet Underground, Crazy Horse-style Neil Young and the Beatles in the music. They often sound like Sonic Youth with Angus Young on lead guitar. But nothing was more unexpected than the band’s reunion a few years ago. In the annals of epic band meltdowns, Dinosaur Jr.’s was notable for its acrimony.

Every year my family throws a raging Fourth of July party on the Eastside. It is legendary. I mean legendary to both the Costa Mesa Fire Department and Costa Mesa police. Legal fireworks, barbecue, kids, family and a throng of fun. We spend thousands at various booths around town to support the good causes in need of fundraising dollars amid hard times for all of us that really dates back to the second term of George W. Bush and his misguided presidency that trickled down to now and left the world on all fronts, in war, with the economy, with race relations, with fundraising, with charities, in a shambles.

In 2009, the average American will have a harder time qualifying for a $300,000 mortgage than General Motors had qualifying for $13.4 billion in bailout money the company is getting from taxpayers. But even harder than qualifying for that bailout dough or that mortgage is the job our local children will have trying to raise money for their athletic and academic organizations. Throughout the year, kids are selling cookie dough, candy, restaurant discounts, fireworks and Christmas trees, as well as hosting car washes and manning the snack bars for their events.

The teetering economy as we approach Christmas 2008 can be looked at in several ways. What we mostly hear is disaster for retailers accustomed to booming sales and dismay from the would-be recipients of that largesse. A lose-lose situation for Santa Claus. But it doesn’t have to be seen this way. It can also be seen as an opportunity to return Christmas to a place where gifts are measured not by what they cost but rather by what they offer in time, thought, creativity and love.
