Drivebys: The Cars of VidCon 2018

This week, I attended VidCon for the very first time. What is VidCon? You may want to ask your kids..they’ll tell you after they squeal with delight. It’s a conference for anyone who works in online video, but more recently it’s become a fanboy/fangirl festival for kids who worship YouTubers. So, of course I was there! Actually, I was there to up my video game...

Only In LA: The Art of the Lowrider

What kind of idiot wakes up early on a Sunday morning to go to a museum? This idiot, why thank you. My motivation wasn’t to head to any old museum, I was off to the Petersen Automotive Museum– Los Angeles’ answer to an automotive temple of worship. For the past few years, the Pete has been hosting a series of themed cruise ins, which attract...

Drive Bys: Street Signs Are My Prozac

I had a rough week, people. I’m not gonna lie.  I know it all looks easy: the brilliant writing career, supermodel looks, mad driving skills & amazingly supportive, check writing readers, but sometimes even I get down.

Drive Bys: Housekeeping By Hooters

My daughter told me it was real. I figured she was bluffing.  It couldn’t be true. But then, I saw it.  With my very own eyes. The Topless Maid Van: (Parked in front of my local Target, nonetheless) Now I could get all worked up about women being exploited, men being pigs, etc. Or, I could laugh my ass off. And I chose the latter, thank...

Drive Bys: Roadside Rock Star

Despite its sunshine & smiling faces, LA can be a tough place to live. Particularly if, like many of us, you came to the City Of Angels with big dreams because (spoiler alert!) they don’t always come true. What happens to these disheartened dreamers?  Well, most simply move to the 909. Others stay in LA to engage in endless plastic surgery or become relentless stage parents. Sometimes, luckily...
