It’s high art on Super Cali Listic this week as a hair rant turns into husband appreciation. To add sparkle to your weekly routine click here:
While Jesse works on American Psycho, I’m in London with mum and Baby Deco in a neighborhood called Islington. Today we wandered around, spying on the fashionable locals and admiring the old architecture.
Colorful umbrellas through a kitchen window.
“Chim Chim Cher-ee” is what we started singing when we turned the corner and saw row after row of chimneys.
I like so many new moms think we can cook, clean, bath, burp and still manage to have time for our own endeavors. The truth is you need help, and even then you’re working overtime. And now cue the cliche “But it’s the best thing I’ve ever done” and it’s true it is. I LOVE my little man. However, that doesn’t mean I don’t have moments where I go completely bonkers. Like this week when I TRIED to shoot a video about my trip to YouTube Space LA…
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 don’t have a lot of time to shoot now that I’ve got baby full time. But once in a while I try to grab the fascination of the moment with whatever camera I have handy. On this particular day the wind was dancing through the trees as Deco crawled around on his baby blanket. Enjoy.
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.
This week take a peak at what is happening in the digital art scene of Los Angeles.
I recently submitted a video art piece titled “Sisters” to the Downtown Los Angeles Film Festival. One of 15 digital shorts selected, I’m really looking forward to the screening Saturday morning (see details below). Meanwhile, the artist reception will be at LACDA (Los Angeles Center for Digital Arts) this Thursday night as part of LA’s Downtown Artwalk. Hope to see you there!

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.
