Fires and Rage: California Baby

Baby It’s Hot Outside

In Southern California a few large brush fires broke out last week. Tis the season, not really but it’s the holiday season. Although it feels like a warm August month here. Pretty strange and must admit as much as I don’t like fire when it’s suppose to be getting colder, I like how cool the smokey clouds look.

The Price is Wrong Mother Fucker

Mother nature and weather affect every facet of our lives and it deserves more of our attention. Or else your house will burn down too someday. Life here in Southern California is for the rich and the famous. It is bloody expensive for one and very fast paced for two. No but really anyone is welcomed here but you better like heat and high prices. Which may or may not make it an oxymoron.

Ventura California It’s Your Turn to Grow

The other side of the truth you must know. Ventura California has been having very slow growth for years. I mean the city wouldn’t build and it’s a beautiful beach town. The infrastructure is old Spanish style. It doesn’t work for a beach town if you ask me. This fire is going to force them to build some new stuff. Sometimes you have to burn down the old to start the new.

Sugar Plums and Scones

The Pleasure of Warm Bread

When it comes to warm bread count me in, but in this case I’m talking more about warm homemade scones. I made low carb eggnog scones today for blogmas. And no my eggnog isn’t homemade. F*** making your own homemade eggnog. I bought my eggnog from Trader Joe’s just like I buy most everything else from their too.

Trader Joe’s Christmas Isle

Trader Joe’s has a massive cult following. By cult following I mean myself included. And I love every second of my shopping rampages. Especially during the holidays because they theme it up. You should see my grocery bag full of all this Xmas shit. I mean: eggnog this, ginger bread house that,  peppermint this, and cranberry that. It’s fantastic!

Home Alone in the Dvd Player

Last year I pulled the plunge and bought Home Alone 1 and 2 on dvd. However its not on high definition so its like watching a movie made in the 90s today. The quality is very 90s. But I still watch this cult classic to the bone. What can I say I can’t seem to get enough of Kevin Mccallister. Or should I say Catherine O’hara ?

Power Rangers 2017: Review

maxresdefault

(I wish Lord Zedd was in it..)

Yesterday evening I had the urge to see Power Rangers in theaters. I was a big fan in the 1990’s. The movie turned out to be sentimental and has a ‘long’ backstory. There are five rangers and each gets a backstory. The movie takes itself very serious because the original TV show is so dorky. It’s science fiction nerd stuff. I liked the 21st century armor they had. It’s one of the reasons I wanted to see it.  But they only wore the ranger costumes at the end of the movie. This movie would be like if the tv show Degrassi and Green Lateran had a baby.

In the end all I wanted to see was the cool computer graphics they advertised. And I’m a sucker for nostalgia. The strangest part was how much Krispy Cream Donuts were mentioned in the film, weird huh? Product placement anyone? Hey someone had to pay for it. It’s up to you if you’re feeling the 1990’s nostalgia vibe. I was fee

ling it last night and it brought up my dorky, youthful years.

Poppy Seed Flowers in Spring

It’s spring time and I visited the poppy flower reserve in Antelope Valley, CA. It was beautiful and orange all around. As my dad says it’s like an ‘orange carpet.’ And truly it was an orange carpet ride. I’m writing this blog to showcase the vibrant pictures I took. I’ve lived in Southern California my whole life and can’t believe it was my first time visiting the poppy flowers.

I touched one of the flowers to get a texture feel. They are silky smooth. The whole time on our nature walk I wondered what does orange mean? The color evokes something in you. Bright vast orange colors bring up feelings of joy and creativity.  It radiates warmth and happiness with a splash of emotional strength. All of which is felt in this sea of orangeness.

How could such a beautiful flower provoke such happiness? was it because it was a new place? Or can flowers incite joy just by being colorful? I’m curious if these beautiful poppy’s are here just for our viewing pleasure. Orange just might be my new favorite color.

Yes I am a Feminist

You could say I am passionate about feminism. Feminist have gotten a bad rep, because people like to think dirty of the word and that we have evolved past women equality. Yes women wear jeans and hustle and bustle like their male counterparts. But the most important element lags behind, which is the entertainment industry and the media. Women are misrepresented in the largest entertainment industry in the world- “Emerica”. Movie watching is a hobby of mine and to see how much little growth they are making in a society that is shaped by pop-culture and entertainment is mind boggling.

I have much more to say about the issue and want to leave you with some questions- why won’t patriarchy allow women more roles in movies? Why are majority of screenplay writers catering to only one gender? How can it be possible in the 21st century’s that I can think of at least five male directors names, but not one female directors name?

Breakfast in July

I have been reading a lot on creativity lately, because I want to live a more joyful life filled with creating. It appears the common theme of people writing about the subject is how creativity involves inquiring. Well if that is so does that make me creative if I inquire about the world around me?
