Last Week in Pix/Don't Try This At Home +2x2


Last week in we go:

I voted by mail!! 
 This was my first time to vote as a Californian, so that's exciting. I also voted Yes on the proposition for porn stars to wear condoms. Yes, that's a real thing. God bless Los Angeles.

Friday night I got all touristy because my friend Eric was in town from Quebec. So we went to Hollywood and saw the sights. 

More sights...

Brandi and Eric....

Shrek's star (he's probably the most famous star. Just sayin.) 

Then, on the way home at almost 4 a.m. while there was no one on the road, I got a little adventurous. Kids: do NOT try this stunt! I was really really really really dumb for doing it. But. I did. And I was really really really really dumb for photographing it. But. I did. I went over 100 mph on the highway. Go, Mini, Go! 

Stunts performed by a really really really stupid chick and should not be attempted by anyone, ever.  


Last week I learned...
1. My hair is getting too long/big for bantu knot-outs and I need to come up with a different style
2. It's time for a friend cleanse. A few people are adding more drama than goodness to my life and 'ain't nobody got time for that.'

This week I'm looking forward to...
1.Halloween and the first costume made just for me! Lisa is helping me make my Ganja Fairy costume and I'm so excited!
2. Trying to go gluten free. I know I feel better when I eat that way, but I haven't had the will power to stick with it. But I'm tired of feeling sick when I eat. I went in to budgeting kicking and screaming but now I see it paying off, literally. So I can only hope that this will have a similar outcome. 

I hope you had a great weekend, because here comes another week. ::Sigh::

Justice for Georgina, aka Go See Get Out Immediately

In Get Out, the brilliant new Jordan Peele film, black people are used by white people's brains. 
That's the shortest explanation, as there are so many levels to the movie. I'm typically not one to see scary movies (I can't even get through Michael Jackson's "Thriller" video), but when I read about this movie's perfect score on Rotten Tomatoes and the raving reviews from critics, I had to go and support this film from a black director with black stars.

I'm not a fan of scary movies. They always give me nightmares. Before I saw the film, a coworker assured me that I wouldn't have nightmares after watching Get Out. He was right and wrong. I didn't have nightmares about monsters lurking in dark corners, but I stayed awake unpacking all of the themes and metaphors of the film. In doing so, a big part of why I wasn't afraid occurred to me: These …

Sex. Dirty, Dirty Sex

Friends, I have something I have to let you know - if you don't know already: Sex is disgusting. 
Seriously, think about it. Ew, don't think about it.  Yes, it feels fantastic. If you're with the right person at the right time it feels out-of-this-world incredible (fireworks, much?).  But have you ever stopped to think about what you're doing? Like, literally?
You're placing your most private parts into someone else's most private parts. Or allowing someone to place their most private parts into yours, depending on your gender/sexual preference. That's GROSS, people! Sure we ignore it because it just feels so damn good. But come on, ew!
Then throw on top of that the consequences of this nasty habit we have:  1. A baby. Oh yes, this is a consequence. Particularly if you're not currently in the market for an infant. I don't even want to think about what that does to the body. There's no turning back from a baby. Well, there is, but that's ano…

How The New Prince Album(s) Wrecked My Life – In The Best Possible Way

If you don't know, now you know: Prince dropped an album yesterday called ART OFFICIAL AGE, and also brought us the debut album from his chick trio 3RDEYEGIRL titled PLECTRUMELECTRUM. 
 The Almighty Prince has been teasing us with new music for quite awhile now, dropping singles like "Breakfast Can Wait" long before the new album was announced. But then came the catchy and sexy "U Know" and the news that Prince would give us the first breath of new music since 20Ten in 2010. 
I've spent all of yesterday and today listening to these albums and I'm still not done. No surprise: Prince is blowing my mind. I'm a sucker for an album that tells a story, and this one tells a tale that's futuristic and retrospective at the same damn time. How? Prince, that's how. There's a wondering feeling that the protagonist is trying to find his place in life and love, only to discover (with the help of a guiding being) that he is everything, everything is h…
