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.

“Chim Chim Cher-ee” is what we started singing when we turned the corner and saw row after row of chimneys.
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.

Between allergies and a characteristically weak immune system I have spent a good part of my life sick in bed. Although I find it to be miserable, apparently I also find it to be entertaining, as I have shot some of my favorite videos with a “sick” theme.
It all started with this photography film shot to Shel Silverstein’s poem “Sick”:
My next cold induced film was as Andie Mills for my YouTube channel “Life With Babs”:
And then this week again, instead of taking a sick day on my main channel SuperCaliListic I decided to make fun of my horrible cold and “unidentifiable face rash”:
While I was on location shooting “Me and Babs Do the Wild West” filmmaker and journalist Soo Hwang asked me about how I’m different from my character Andie Mills on Life With Babs and why I choose a character that is so optimistic.
Here is the video I shot on my Route 66 trip for my You Tube channel “Life With Babs”.
I started 2009 off right with an amazing road trip up historic Route 66 with a group of talented gals. We loaded up our photography and film gear and hit the road. Thousands of miles and dozens of double shot lattes later we ended up with a ton of amazing photos and footage. We still haven’t decided what to do with the media we shot, but if you want to view my photos of the trip scroll down and you will find links to a couple of my online albums.

From abandoned gas stations to the ancient caves of the Anasazi, my Route 66 album highlights some of my favorite sights of the trip.

Before I had 3 YouTube channels, 3 short films and tons of pictures and video cluttering up 4 external hard drives, I was studying photography at Santa Monica College and I made this photography film to the Shel Silverstein poem Sick for one of my final projects.
