Last Week in Pix/2x2



Hey kiiiiiids! A good handful of things happened last week, so let's get to it:

Last week, Christopher took us to a Laker game!! 
Yes, I have great disdain for the Lakers. But I'm not going to pass up the NBA in VIP, OMG! 

Had to sport the Thunder shirt. 

 If I'm not mistaken, this is the first game the Lakers won this season. Apparently I'm good luck for Lakers. 


I hope all of you went out to vote! I am completely overjoyed that my POTUS gets four more years to solidify the great work he's done. 




Friday I went to see 'Skyfall' at the Arclight Cinerama Dome in Hollywood.

I've been to the Arclight before, but never in the dome. It was superb! The movie was incredible and so was the company. 


Saturday I represented Yoga Shelter at the North Hollywood Farmers Market! 
It was actually a lot of fun reaching out and talking to strangers about yoga. I got to spend time with a few awesome yogis and drank some juice I'm sure had more than just natural sugar in it because, despite having gotten only 4 hours of sleep, I was WIRED.


And now...the 2x2!
Last week I learned: 
1) About the Divine Fits and Gary Clark, Jr. I highly recommend. 
2) I'm pretty competent in Adobe Illustrator. Yay, me!

This week I'm looking forward to:
1) This is a back-track "I'm looking forward to" because last week this time I didn't know it was going to happen, but yesterday I got to see my high school friend Anna, aka 'Gremlin'! It was so cool to see her all grown up.
2) Saturday. It will be my first day free of work in twelve straight days. It will consist of the final Twilight movie and a great deal of alcohol. 


Have a wonderful week, loves! I hope it goes quickly...for both our sakes.

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…

Justice for Georgina, aka Go See Get Out Immediately

WARNING: ALL OF THE SPOILERS. LIKE, SO MANY SPOILERS. GO SEE THE MOVIE. THAT'S AN ORDER. 
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 …

Denzel Washington > Tom Hanks and I'm sorry.

I was looped into (OK honesty time I looped myself in) to a debate on Facebook about which actor is the best of our time: Tom Hanks or Denzel Washington. 


Initially my thought was: no contest. It's Denzel. I don't understand why we're having a debate. 

But then the Tom Hanks stans went so hard I had to step back and think about whether or not I was trippin' 
But I can assure you I am not. Here are my arguments.
1. Denzel Washington played Malcolm X. Today (May 19th, the date this debate began) is Malcolm's birthday, so triple points for Denzel. 


2. Denzel is sexy as hell. 
I mean, can I just...
Tom, you're a sweetheart but I'm sorry, Denzel's got you on hotness.

3.  Tom and Denzel both have two Oscars. But Denzel was only the second African American actor to win an Oscar for Best Actor in a Leading Role (second to Mr. Sidney Poitier). So if we're talking best of our time, that's a heavy stat. 

4.  We saw Apollo 13 in science class, but we watched R…
