More Nostalgia as Inspiration

The other day, one of my all time favorite movies was on my beloved Ovation TV.  I watched it for what was probably the 50th time.  My love of this movie was only confirmed further by this week’s episode of 30 Rock.  Nice to know that Tina Fey and I have similar taste in movies. [...]


Well this week is turning out to be a trip down memory lane.  Last night I got to see Jane’s Addiction (all four original members) do a mini set at the NME Awards at The El Rey.  Some of you might think that they are a bunch of idiots, but this band played [...]

Happy Birthday Nina!

Nina by Emily

Membership Has Its’ Privileges.

Last night I was lucky enough to go to The Magic Castle.  For those of you who don’t know what that is, it’s an invitation only experience where one goes to have dinner and see some magic.  It’s also a club, and only magicians can become members.  We went as “guests” – ate, saw some [...]

I Heart Ovation TV

The other night, Anna put me on to this channel Ovation TV because they were airing a show called The Genius of Photography.  I watched it and then set my DVR to record the whole series as well as Close up: Photographers At Work.  Last night I watched that one, Close Up, and it focused [...]
