  • Hello from Hollywood, land of the glamourous movie stars crazy people! ha, just kidding.

    hollywood walk of fame

    There are TONS of amazingly talented people here, but ya, there are some crazies too. Take a walk down Hollywood Blvd and you’ll know what I mean.

    One of my life philosophies is “You gotta out-crazy the crazies!” Something I think I can do quite well….

    My plan was to get back on the raw today, and although I am doing better…(I made an awesome salad for lunch) I somehow got dragged into Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf. (seriously my favourite coffee place, probably GOOD they don’t have them in Canada)

    While I waited for my drink, I read their quote of the day, which happened to be by Steve Jobs.

    Then, there it was, like a bottle to a baby, a bone to a dog and peanut butter to it’s jelly….
    I was reunited with the 500 calorie Black Forest Ice Blended coffee!!!

    Mmmmm, I shared with Mike, so I probably only consumed 495 calories of the 500.. Not bad!

    We were supposed to shoot today, but it got cancelled, so we headed back “home”. Here’s Mike carrying ALL the gear. (what? I still can’t lift anything for another 1.5 weeks;)

    I had tons of voice work to get caught up on, so literally that’s been the rest of our day…

    I got a spot for CTV today. Made me feel at home!

    Hope your day has been fantastic! Sending you warm sunshiny California sun… from my heart to yours!

    Talk sooooooon


  • Hello from sunny California.

    Things are going great. Woke up today and had a 65 page voice job in my inbox… Okeedokee, no beach for me today.

    I’ve gotten a bit of it done. Mike always does such a great job of rigging up my portable studio, no matter where we are!

    Here is me in the hotel closet. We could actually fully close the doors, cause we put the lamp in the closet, (after taking the lamp shade off- we trash hotel rooms in a different way, haha)

    We said bye to our beachy Hotel Hermosa and have now moved into the Hollywood area for the remainder of our trip.

    Once we got settled in our new place, we took a walk down Hollywood Blvd..

    Still looking the same… Still all the wax museums, people trying to sell you tours to go see celeb homes, the walk of fame, and of course Ripley’s believe it or not museum…

    Ripleys believe it or not, hollywood

    Hollywood and Highland.

    This was at the Grauman’s Chinese Theater. They were getting ready for a premiere of the movie The Artist.

    I heart Hollywood and Vine, so much that I wrote about it in one of my songs off our last album…..

    After some wandering, I took Mike to the Cat and Fiddle, an old hot spot I used to go to.

    It’s right on Sunset Blvd, a place I used to go to. It’s in a courtyard, neat place.

    After a few days of eating non-raw cuisine, I got re-inspired when I spotted this super cool raw vegan organic joint…

    Then I put my foot down and said, ok, now that we are in a place that we will be at for the next 8 days, lets get groceries. So we went to Trader Joe’s and I bought lots of greens, fruits, veggies, all the good stuff, (and a couple bottles of the $1.99 wine! Gotta love Trader Joe’s!)

    Hope your having a great week. Can’t wait until we meet again!! Tomorrow perhaps???

    Stay cool San Diego….
