Fashion: No Mo Boho

Fashion: No Mo' Boho

Attention Fashion Designers: I am over the “Coachella – inspired” BoHo BS look! 1. Coachella did begin as a concert or a place to hear GOOD music? Correct? Not as a fashion statement. 2. Boho is a no go on most. Word to most – you look like a couch. 3. I left my heart in SF a while ago but pretty sure it wasn’t the 60s. Please! I am so over this look and it is completely contradictory to my ROCKER music taste too btw. So, bring back glamour! I am not sure I would wear my derby day… Continue Reading

George Michael And Prince Tribute On The Grammy Awards®

Prince and George Michael Grammys

I just received a press release about the Grammy Awards and thought I would pass along the information entitled: “TRIBUTES SET FOR MUSIC ICONS GEORGE MICHAEL AND PRINCE ON THE 59TH ANNUAL GRAMMY AWARDS® “. As Metallica sings, this is “Sad But True” with so many music legends lost this past year. This tribute sounds like something not to miss honoring some of my favorite musical icons and it will truly be unforgettable. I am listening to Prince and George Michael as I write this blog post. Legends lost but I am so happy I saw both of these performers… Continue Reading

Hollywood (Hollyweird): So Cliché, But This Is LA

Hollywood (Hollyweird): So Cliché, But This Is LA

I am in Los Angeles for the week and thought I would revisit a post that describes how living in Los Angeles is not like what you see on TV. There are some great parts about living in Southern California (including the weather and the shopping) but there are some other reasons that make it challenging to live and navigate this harsh environment (they could probably film an episode of Naked and Afraid in some parts of LA). So, while I am in Beverly Hills, I thought I would share one of my favorite snarky posts and see if you… Continue Reading

Zipcar: $25 Off Wheels When You Want Them

I am a California girl inside and out! More specifically, born in the Bay Area. Love my San Francisco Giants, Golden State Warriors and San Francisco 49ers (but Kaep can go anytime). However, I moved to Los Angeles to work in the music business when I completed college at the University of Arizona. I will always be a Wildcat and a Bay Area sports fan no matter what zip code I am in! Going back to Cali, Cali, Cali and the fact that NorCal and SoCal are different but what they do have in common is traffic and parking situations…. Continue Reading

He refers to himself as the “One and only son of Mrs. Rock” and I love his snarky commentary as you can see in this clip from the new show on Ovation called On the Record with Mick Rock.
