the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local,
self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like
experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to
spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local,
self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently
organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for
the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.*

I don't know why it took me this many a moon for me to make this purchase. I was aware of this box set when it dropped in 1997. Pet Sounds is arguably one of if not the, best Beach Boys album.

redefines and deconstructs a musical work of art like never before! Here

Pet Sounds made its first appearance in 1966. Younger generations from their hometown of Hawthorne, CA, and South Bay locals, like myself, find thrill in the fact that such greatness comes from lands we know.
You must take your time with this cornucopia. The wonder of the Beach Boy's darling, is broken down into as story that makes sense.
Does Virginity Matter Anymore? - The Point - May 2013
From the post:
Published on May 7, 2013
Have we passed the point in time
when virginity was important? In older times, feminine virginity was
valued as more of a commodity in trading. The notion objectified women,
and actually created a sexist and misogynistic climate in which women
equated virginity to their value. So, how does placing high value on
virginity measure up today? Is there no reason for the emphasis to exist
any more? And can the blame for the overvalue of virginity not only be
placed on "commodity" value, but also for men who fear any sort of
And what does "virginity value" mean in today's
culture? Does it create "slut shaming?" While seemingly innocent and
rooted in tradition, honor, etc., does weighting virginity with so much
social interest and attention help set a tone for a culture to disparage
and degrade female sexuality? Not to mention that women also get
criticized for being prudes?
Is there ANY way women can win this predicament as it stands?
These questions and more in this installment of The Point! Host: Ana Kasparian Panel: Desi Doyen (Co-host -Green News Report) Hugo Schwyzer (Writer, History and Gender Studies Professor, Pasadena City College) Dave Rubin (Host -Rubin Report)
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!
