I saw this piece, "Thank You", by Samara Golden at Made in L.A. a few weeks back. The sound component was probably my favorite part but I also can get behind any piece that engages you with 3-D glasses (that's me at the top) and replicas of Casio watches. I also really liked that one of the photos looked like my friend Gary.

We went to the free Drive Like Jehu reunion concert this past Sunday night and it was really impressive on several fronts. They played with a live organist and there was probably at least 3,000 people there. It all felt very late 90s, as do many things here, and I loved it.

I am getting caught up on my California cinema and finally got around to watching Valley Girl in its entirety and fell in love. Not always a Nicholas Cage fan, I finally got his appeal after watching him in this. This movie has an amazing soundtrack but possibly the worst trailer of the 80s? Blech.
Speaking of Martha Coolidge movie trailers, the Real Genius one is a bit better. Although, there is a clip of Val Kilmer "floating" in a chair elevated by hot air balloons which is definitely not in the movie.

I love this video on artist Heather Wilcoxon from In the Make. I have been living in SoCal for the almost 6 months now and haven't met too many artists out here yet. Perhaps they're all on houseboats? Wouldn't that be dreamy.
