Not all Americans can agree on Global Warming, but I bet you anything at 97 degrees in mid-October 100% of the people of Los Angeles are firm believers. Typically, I work from home for the majority of the week but over the last few days I’ve been trekking it from Hollywood to Burbank to get my work on; working from home is so great because I can be in whatever clothes I want – gym clothes, PJs, a sundress – and as long as I’m comfortable, I’m golden. But coming into the office has been a little brutal! The AC is cranked to about 65, so when we come inside we’re inspired to bundle up because it’s a tad chilly – but take one step outside and you’ve already sweat all over yourself. Cute, real cute. Anyhow, I digress – let’s see what the hell else is going on in the world besides our collective temperatures rising…
Presidential Election 2012:
After the first Town Hall meeting just a few weeks ago, I was a little nervous for round two; Obama didn’t look like much of a fighter, especially compared to Mittens who happened to come out swinging. Well, thank goodness that finally changed last night at the Hofstra Debate. Personally, I enjoyed the format of last night’s debate more than the first one – the moderator was on top of her game and I appreciated the questions and feedback from the audience. The debate was so rapid fire, and the candidates were so sassy, that discerning truth from fiction was a little difficult, thankfully there’s always fact checking; and for those who want to take it a step further, you can find a full video and transcript here.
Ultra Music Festival
If one weekend of raging in the sun with your best friends, good music and great weather is fabulous, two is obviously a whole lot better – right? Following in the footsteps of other music festivals, like the hipster fueled Coachella and Insomniac’s fabulously neon Electric Daisy Carnival, Ultra is spreading their Miami Music Week wings. Instead of being limited to one weekend, UMF will now take over Miami for two consecutive weekends in attempts to wrangle both a larger audience and a hefty chunk of change.
Red Bull Stratos
The Red Bull Stratos project, rescheduled for this past Sunday because of winds, put Austrian born daredevil and BASE jumper Felix Baugmgarter successfully 120,000 in the air at the edge of space. He proceeded to amaze and defy all logic by jumping back to Earth; setting a new record for the highest base jump and traveling at the speed of sound. I still have no words to explain what I saw expect: HOLY SH*T.
Anyone that knows anything about me can tell you this: I’m not much of an award show girl. The Oscars put me to sleep, I never see the categories I want on the Grammy’s, and maybe if you put on the ESPY’s I’ll pay attention, maybe. But come January 13 that is all about to change – women, dogs, children, everybody – they’re going to be SO excited because Tina Fey and Amy Poehler have agreed to host the Golden Globes together!
