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.
the years in the dark, looking up at the silver screen……..
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.
we *did* take pictures.
you are most kind for asking.
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
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).
don’t open a new browser window and visit mr. google – we’ve done it for you….
and an article here
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.
a m a z i n g.
we must tell Arianna – she’ll love that.
