My LA Times: Why Isn’t California More Like Clueless?

Colleen Callahan, one of my oldest and dearest friends, traveled 3,000 miles from Maryland to visit me in the city of angels. It’s the film buff’s first time on the West Coast, and I asked her a few questions about her expectations vs realities of the big C.A. What was your idea of California before visiting? It […]

Lady Driver: Porsche Robots Will Make You Clothes

When I was invited to the re-opening of the Porsche Design Store on Rodeo Drive in Beverly Hills, I assumed that the place would be full of, well, car things. Maybe some racing gloves or goggles. Helmets. Key chains. But instead, I found a store full on INNOVATION. You can buy it and wear it […]

I often mistake […]

‘Appy Birthday, ‘Arry

Today, Harry Potter turns 33. According to Potterpedia, Voldemort was defeated in 1998, so it’s been fifteen years since Harry has had to do any Expelliarmussing (at least in the life-threatening capacity). He has been Head Auror for some time now and has been featured on his very own Chocolate Frog Card (Ron and Hermione […]
