Zero Days of Summer: The Playlist

Howdy, kids! I know my last post was music-related, but here’s a lil playlist I put together today.

So, as some of you may know, summer has not quite hit San Francisco – it’s been 65 degrees and cloudy for the last 3 months. As such, I’m trying to keep the summer spirit alive (and hopefully not get too mopey with my vitamin D deficiency) in hopes that it will be warm and sweater-free soon (at least for a few weeks) with these songs that remind me of summertime. Enjoy!

Change Clothes and Go

Lately, I’ve found myself to be in somewhat of a strange head space. I attribute this to not having much time to do absolutely nothing… which, honestly, I rarely do because I don’t like being “bored”, but sometimes it’s really important. As my friend Frank N. would say, “it’s all a part of the creative process.” I need to remember this. read more »

Blast from the Past: Rewind to 1994

My cousin Natasha and me on the Golden Gate Bridge, San Francisco, California, 1994

It was April of 1994. I had just turned 10 a whole month earlier. DOUBLE DIGITS! And yes, I was clearly going through my ugly stage. Haha. My Uncle flew my cousin and I up to visit him and my Aunt in San Jose and we took a day trip up to San Francisco. The only things I knew about San Francisco at this point in my life was that the Tanner family lived there and that Rice-A-Roni was allegedly the city’s favorite food. Little did I know that 15 years later, I would call this crazy place home.

Here we come a-wassailing among the leaves so green!

I know that this is not really a movie most people think of when they think of holiday films, but it is one of my favorites to watch around Christmastime. Especially when I’m at home. And especially with my sisters and my mom. Watching it now as a young woman is still amazing and I can look back and understand why I loved it so much as a young girl. I can also see how this film has shaped me in some ways to be the woman I am today. read more »

A Movement Begins in a Million Pink Bedrooms

A few weekends ago I ventured out to one of my favorite streets in San Francisco (Valencia St) to visit this amazing zine show that I read about in SF Weekly at Goteblud, You Are Her: Riot Grrrl and Underground Female Zines of the 1990s. I was way too excited about this show. I know I say that a lot, but this time I mean it times 20. To be able to be surrounded by the zines and writings and manifestos that created a small yet extremely significant movement in the world and in my life… I was beside myself. Seriously out of body HOLY SHIT I CAN MAKE COPIES! AND TOUCH EVERYTHING?! experience. read more »
