BROKEN TOYS-30 Years in the Making Live at the Gallo Center July 18th

BROKEN TOYS-30 Years in the Making Live at the Gallo Center July 18th

     Moving to a town that only had 8 exits off the Freeway(what kind of cultural wasteland was my parents moving us to) was a pretty big shock for a teenager from LA(and what classic 80 movie plots seemed to be all about.) What did this "hick town" have to offer to a Modernist Punk from the "Big City." I remember the first High School dance I attended the DJ had a list of bands not to play, no Bauhaus, no Cure, no Blondie, not even the B-52's. I noticed in a box a 7" a band that wasn't on the list The Dead Kennedys so I had him play Holiday in Cambodia(a small win for my rebellious soul.)  I was a stranger in a strange land being assaulted by Jocks and Cowboys for the clothes on my back and the way I wore my hair.

Celebrate The Earth

Celebrate The Earth

For eight years Disneynature has created films released for Earth Day.  Seeing these films has become a favorite tradition for my husband and I.  This year’s movie opens on Friday, April 17 and is called Monkey Kingdom.  Part of the proceeds from attending opening week goes to protecting monkeys and other endangered species in their natural habitats.  Watching Monkey Kingdom this week is something simple and enjoyable you can do while helping our endangered friends.
