Clockwork Orange County: The Rise of West Coast Punk Rock!
"Southern California. The early 70s. Spike-haired kids with tattoos and a
love for loud music stuck out like sore thumbs. These Punk pioneers
found their only sanctuary at Cuckoo's Nest, a club in Costa Mesa.
""Clockwork Orange County"" chronicles this scene, where seminal Punk
acts such as The Ramones, T.S.O.L. and Black Flag launched, and a west
coast chapter of a global musical movement was born."
Although, a wonderful photo of Alex Ebert from Edward Sharpe & the Magnetic Zeroes between seeming human goalie posts, I feel it is an image of joy. An image that exemplifies just how wonderful it is to witness and to experience arms outstretched. Upward towards the sky, is always a good direction. It's the little things that feel so big. Feeling grateful. Blessed be.
More and more I have been delving into raw food living. If you're serious about juicing this one is for you. It's muy expensive, but if you know you're going to be frequently juicing, I think it's a good investment. Find one that suits YOUR needs!

Today marks the15th year after Columbine. Each
time this year, I settle in for some reflection, & often a good dose
Feminist-sociologist, Michael Kimmel, has asserted that
mass shootings seem to have a common theme. Male. White.
As a person in the mental health biz, I do know that it can play a part
(and I am not suggesting that it had or had not within the Columbine
events) but I also think we cannot ignore, that it's not about just
illness, and guns. It's often anger, about race, and gender.
There is great love for all those who want it, and share it--but anger is the only real emotion that is rewarded among men. Aren't we done yet? Can we put down privilege? Can we put down patriarchy? Can we create and move forward with resources for all?
I believe story telling is an art form and blogging is a medium in which to share stories and ideas. Within this blog I hope to cover a spectrum of topics. From the serious to the silly. Here you will read my views and inquiries about subjects such as feminism, other various socio-political issues, psychology, spirituality, sexuality, and general interests such as film, art and music. You will also be exposed to my obsession with cupcakes, tea, books, Hello Kitty, and quirky day to day journeys. I enjoy learning from others as I am constantly attempting to introspect, grow and evolve. During this process I will be jotting down musings on this blog. Pull up a comfy chair and a spot of tea and join me!
