Charles Manson Haunt, Spahn Movie Ranch, Hell or Hollywood History?

Charles Manson Haunt, Spahn Movie Ranch, Hell or Hollywood History? I am really going off the beaten path today as Christa, my daughter, and I decided to have an adventure in Hollywood history this week while we were off for the holiday and the reaction of others to our destination was quite surprising to me.  We went to the infamous Spahn Movie Ranch which was home to Manson and The Family at the time of the Tate/La Bianca murders. Having spent many years of my early career working in death row and criminal law I was interested in the...

If you plan on renting the DVD of “All Good Things,” …

If you plan on renting the DVD of “All Good Things,” please read this first Kathie McCormack was a beautiful young woman. When I look at pictures of her, I remember an even prettier woman. I liked Kathie because she was not all about her looks and that helped because I was so insecure about mine. My three brothers had secret crushes on her. I think they might protest this proclamation now, but their older sister saw their faces. Kathie always laughed the loudest at my father’s jokes and nothing pleased my late father more then to have a...

Handy Tips for the First Time Buyer of Art

Handy Tips for the First Time Buyer of Art All of us love to have art in our homes. It immediately changes the whole appearance of the room, and gives it personality and character. Despite our best intentions, art is not easy to incorporate into our homes. It is not in any way easier to purchase art either, when we are confounded by the mind-boggling variety in style, color, size and type. All forms of art are lovely, provided the art you have in your home is something that you understand, appreciate and love. Also, it should be something that adds to your interior décor and increases, enhances and complements its beauty. Art can be bought to fit into a room or you can decorate a room to support and supplement the art you plan to place in it. You should first zero in on the type of art that you would love to have, and for this you need to have a good understanding of the different art forms out there. There are drawings, prints, paintings, sculpture, installations, photography, mixed media and crafts, to name a few, for you to choose from. Paintings are obviously on top of the list of art you would like to have in your home. So let’s explore the amazing world of paintings, and art in general, through the eyes of a first...

What Feminist Theater Means to Me

What Feminist Theater Means to Me Let me first start by introducing myself to those who don’t know me and stumbled upon this on accident.  My name is Reesa.  And I am an unabashed feminist.  Some of you will stop reading or role their eyes at that, and that’s fine, it’s your right.  Just as it is my right to believe that all humans are equal, regardless of sex, color, sexual orientation, or anything else you want to put in this category.   I have spent the last few years of my life trying to figure out how to best work towards equality.  I’m still...

Rock, Shell, Bead and Brick – Easy to Make, Free Gifts

Rock, Shell, Bead and Brick – Easy to Make, Free Gifts I needed a little break from collage so I picked up my pliers and wire and started wrapping rocks. Call them tchotkes, doodads, fetishes, what have you, I don’t care — I’m on a tear. Earlier in the year, I blogged about finding finding a bunch of beach brick down in Galveston, most of it likely to be remnants of hurricane Ike, which manifested its horrible self here on the Gulf Coast during September of 2008. The bricks’ humble shapes spoke to me, softened as they are by...

Film And TV Star, Animal Activist/Advocate, Elaine Hendrix

Animal Activist/Advocate, Elaine Hendrix Several years ago when my granddaughter, Fallon, was about four years old, she was addicted to the movie Romy And Michele’s High School Reunion.  She watched that movie faithfully every day and could recite almost every line from it.  While watching it with her and her mother I was taken by a young actress who was an obvious standout in the role of “Lisa Luder”.  She was the only member of the high school clique who had grown past their “in crowd” high school years, made a good career for herself and had the courage...
