notes from friday: 1844 californian adobe, #HuffPo, message sent to berlin and received from JAPAN #glorious

darlings

we are so very excited – who-we-are-in-RL is writing film reviews for our good friend Arianna – isn’t that splendid?

not many know, of course, that she (RL, not our good friend Arianna) started writing film reviews as a young (and so very deeply naive) student at the London University newspaper which is (still!) rather aptly named – London Student.

ah yes.

the years in the dark, looking up at the silver screen……..

*pause*

*sighs*

lovely.

on another note.

our writing research for next week’s column in Los Angeles, I’m Yours took us to Calabasas and back in 90-degree burning sunshine (whatever that is in old money) yesterday.

we weren’t writing about the Leonis Adobe per se but we can’t resist popping into a museum when there are a few moments free on the calendar.

why yes!

we *did* take pictures.

you are most kind for asking.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA so as we cut down from the extreme heat of Calabasas through Topanga Canyon (cue 60s music) and down to the Pacific Ocean we paused at the red lights (befitting all traffic regulations) and this is the picture we took for our friend miss jules who is Heading HERE from Berlin on Monday!

we posted the picture on Instagram (how modern, as William would say)

and then one of our virtual friends from JAPAN

*pausetowavetothelandoftherisingsun*

yes, JAPAN!

left us a billet doux on the photograph to tell us that the blue we had captured (we adore blue-blue-blue) reminded him of Kitano.

well, this was a cultural reference we did not hitherto know (which is very exciting – we love new knowledge pod moments).

look.

kitano

don’t open a new browser window and visit mr. google – we’ve done it for you….

and an article here

well.

#exhale

isn’t that amazing?

a european-Living-in-LosAngeles visits an adobe structure built in 1844 and drives to the Pacific Ocean – takes a photograph for a friend in Berlin and someone in Japan tells us about a whole cultural movement around the shade blue-blue-of-LA-Ocean_and-sky that we did not previously know – in the space of a few  h o u r s.

now that, ladies and gentlemen and undecided gender warriors, is The Future of storytelling and communication.

right here.

a m a z i n g.

*shivers*

we must tell Arianna – she’ll love that.

  1. My Goodness Gloria
    Such a profusion of images both actual and metaphorical.
    Bravo on the film reviewing though I am now your sworn enemy as I was always a Pi Magazine rather than London Student sort of a gent myself…. now I’m sure no one out there and maybe not even you will be following my runaway train of thought!
    Of all you beautiful snaps, the advice not to climb on wagons must be my favourite, though I would almost certainly be certain to ignore it!
    Yours ever

  2. Hooray! Oh how exciting to see WYAIRL on HuffPost! I haven’t seen the movie but still know that was one finely crafted review. :)

  3. whoa.
    breathtaking. stories like this make me panic at yet another “great” idea on controlling the interwebz.

    and I’ve jumped right to the HuffPo page and found your review sharp and cutting to the core. brava.

do say something - do :-)
