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.

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…
