This week it’s back to Super Cali Land to confess the details of my double life as a succulent thief:
When both Jesse and Deco managed to break limbs (toe and leg respectively) the week before Halloween it only seemed fitting to dress up as one of fiction’s creepiest nurses – Annie Wilkes from Stephen King’s MISERY…
I’ve had my precious Prius Pearl since 2007 and all these years I’ve been obsessed with the back up camera. So much so that after wrapping my short film “Pearl” DP Jen May and I decided to drive down the Hollywood Hills in reverse and attempt to shoot the back up camera screen with her 5D. We covered the 5D with black cardboard and here is the result. The footage did not make it into the film (often what I find aesthetically pleasing is apparently NOT. As I am often reminded by my producer husband), but it’s fun to finally look at the footage and share it with anyone out there that has a similar obsession with their back up camera…anybody… I think it’s probably time to get a wide angle lens and start shooting with it instead of fantasizing about driving around in reverse while I shoot the screen in my car.
My YouTube obsession started with a crazy girl named Andie Mills and her adventures with BFF Babs Darling.

Fast forward a few years and I’m still striking a pose, only the casting has changed to my beautiful baby boy, Deco. Shh! Don’t tell Babs, she’d die of jealously.

So I was feeling pretty rotten this past week, so of course I decided to shoot a video from my “sick bed” instead of getting some much needed sleep. Brilliant. Originally I had planned to make a fun video about a beer pong tournament I was in the previous weekend, but of course all my plans fell through when I feel ill and spent what little energy I had caring for Baby Deco.
PS I know the pop phone thing is kinda weird, but get used to it, cause I’m too cheap AND busy to figure out a better solution right now.
I recently did a collab with the awesome Turkish technology review channel, iPhonedo on YouTube. And since the video posted last week the awesome peeps of iPhonedo have been arriving on my channel SuperCaliListic. So cool. One tiny setback…I don’t speak Turkish. So this video goes out to the iPhonedo Army. Thanks for all the love and I hope you enjoy hanging out in Super Cali Land!
Bütün iPhonedoculara teşekkür ederim.
Yakınlarda, YouTube’dan iPhonedo isimli harika bir Türk teknoloji kanalı ile çalıştım. Geçen hafta video yayınlandığından beri, iPhonedo izleyen harika insanlar benim SuperCaliListic isimli kanalıma uğramaya başladılar. Ne güzel. Bir tek minik problem var ben Türkçe bilmiyorum. Bu videoyu iPhonedo ordusu için hazırladım.
Gösterdiğiniz ilgi ve sevgiden dolayı hepinize çok teşekkür ederim. Umarım SuperCaliLand’de geçirdiğiniz vakitten memnun olmuşsunuzdur.
I was recently in a collab with the YouTube channel iPhonedo – technology reviews for Turkey. It was a super fun shoot and although I don’t speak Turkish, from what I can SEE it seems pretty funny. Check it out.
AND iPhonedo used some of the footage to make this GarageBand music video. Very cool:
The grandparents are in town so Jesse and I decided to go to his office to do our taxes. Let’s just say I’m hard at work. Hard at work analyzing how my sweater makes me look like a matronly librarian type while I spin around the room. Let’s just say I’m not the paperwork type and I’m avoiding my very intricate receipt filing system. Which consists of wading up all my paperwork into a tiny little box and then sorting each meaningless scrap the day before my taxes are due.
I’m still on my version of maternity leave, meaning “on a break from posting videos on my various YouTube channels while I feed baby from my booby.” And as many of you know an internet addict like me can’t quit cold turkey, so of course I have adjusted all my social networking settings so that in one click from my iPhone I can post random home videos to all my various sites. Good times. Click below to watch videos from Mommyland, or as Jesse likes to call it “The Dairy Farm”.
As I wait for baby (currently in week 38) I find myself slowly sinking into a heat induced social networking coma. What does this mean? It means in the past week I have joined instagram, pintrist and today, cinemagr.am. It’s a slippery slope…Oh and did I mention I’ve actually been posting updates on google+ ???
