Should Unruly Children Be On Leashes?

20180929_1734321998423216.jpg

We’ve all seen it. You’re at a public place, usually enjoying an entertainment event when a parent walks by with a child on a leash.  It’s a little shocking to see at first, but then you reason that the child could get away and the parents would be liable, not to mention missing them. The “leash” in the picture above isn’t too bad. I’ve seen others that look like they belong on a precious pooch instead. I don’t have children, but how do you feel about unruly children on leashes? What would you do if you had one or saw one?

Surf Dog Competition in Imperial Beach

As a former brand ambassador for a solar company, I was assigned to attend the Surf Dog Competition in Imperial Beach. I saw this incredible golden doodle dog there, surfing in the ocean. Kentucky & His Dog, Derby Weeks later, I saw the surf dog with his owner, named Kentucky parked at my condo.  It turns out, after talking to Kentucky, that both Kentucky and Derby are my new neighbors here at my beach condo!

“Naked Skydiving” Now Available @ Verbatim Books!



Get a signed copy of my autobiographical novel, “Naked Skydiving,” based on the true story of the personal life of a dream interpreter, travelling through the west coast before 9-11, now available in the San Diego local author section at Verbatim Books, 3793 30th St, San Diego, CA 92104.

Verbatim is a great, open minded space to get zines, modern fiction and classics, in a cool, artistic area of San Diego without that Barnes and Noble Big Box corporate mall feeling. They even have a poetry night once a month. So you can read your work there too!

However, if you’re looking for a bookstore with Wi-Fi, as the cashier, Nick, who’s a great guy, agreed with me, they want you to read books here, like you did in your old college bookstore. Not be on the internet. Maybe even heaven forbid, buy a few. Authors can sell there books on consignment too and get 60%. Just ask their cool staff members. Not many chairs here to sit down, but it’s a great literary hangout!

Upcoming Real Estate Seminar On May 26

Naked Skydiving Now Available @ Mira Mesa Barnes and Noble

After talking to Cameron, the head cashier at Barnes & Noble, he agreed to carry a few copies of my autobiographical novel, “Naked Skydiving,” the story of a dream interpreter, traveling throughout west coast before 9-11.

There might also be an open reading at this Barnes & Noble near the 15 freeway on Mira Mesa Blvd this Wednesday night and I’ll read a little from the book and maybe some new work. You can read your own work too! Check back to this blog for details, all thanks to Cameron and the new management at Barnes & Noble. “Naked Skydiving” is available in the fiction section under the S’s for Schaffner, my last name. If I see you in the store, I’ll autograph your copy! Next, I’ll be working to get the book in every Barnes & Noble

 

Chassidic Pop Art

A few months ago,I went to an art exhibit at Chabad of University City and saw these magnificent artworks , some like this picture of hamantashens, which are Jewish cookies, resembling a Warhol painting.

Most of his work is brightly colored like this, giving his religious subjects an ecstatic feeling.

 Here is dreidel, a Jewish top from a Hannukah game.

This is the Etz Chaim, The Tree of Life.

Two Chassids

Moses looks upon the promised land and a few other samples of Yitzach Moullie’s work, are featured in front of him. Yitzach Moullie is a fantastic artist, an ebullient rabbi, and also a real mensch.

San Diego Film Week

I was lucky enough to go to a few classy filmmaking parties last weekend. The first one ended San Diego Film Week.

Here’s a few snaps:

This was the stage where music,comedy and the San Diego Film awards appeared.

Here’s a few ladies enjoying their 2 free drinks at the blackjack table.

Lots of San Diego Film Awards were handed out. I didn’t see most of the films so I can’t really comment on them.

I did attend the San Diego 48hr Film festival and saw a few there.My favorite was called, “Sorry To Bother You.” I don’t think I’d want participate in that festival because you have to pay them to pressure yourself and your cast & crew to finish a film in 48 hours, and besides the little trophy and admiration of your peers, the financial return seems minimal for all your expenses.  True, low or no budget films must be done within a few weeks before participants lose interest. But 48 hrs seems crazy to me.

Festivals abound around the world, online and they are a great way these days to establish yourself as a filmmaker.Lots of trophies were handed out that night like faux Oscars, but I won’t bore you with them. Anyway, the price of admission included 2 free drinks and 2 tacos. Rice and beans were $6.00 extra. Ouch! I came up with my own drink called the Rummelon which is made of rum, watermelon juice and club soda or sprite. Yum! 

Snakeoil cocktails provided the watermelon juice and mixed my original creation. Delicious!

Other than that, there was supposed to be a burlesque show but they thought children would attend so all we got were these “cigarette” girls handing out candy instead.

The next night, was an Oscar party at a fancy La Jolla Mansion for sale. Call me, Jordan Schaffner BRE#01736921 @ 619-346-9433 to make a serious offer over $10 million. 

Here’s where you enter and walk the red carpet.

There was also a ballot to guess the Ocar winners with a fairly large cash prize.

Great views all the way to the pacific.

This is the pool.

Incredible!

What a place to watch the Oscars, from your own infinity pool overlooking La Jolla Beach!

Here’s a few great 🔥 fireplace shots

Some beautiful flowers from the party.

And the Oscar goes to…”La La Land,” no, no, I mean “Moonlight.” Well, we all know that story by now.

Edgar Allen Poe

I got an invitation to the Kate Ashton gallery last Saturday night, near El Cajon Blvd.  What a great Poe party & gallery!

A fantastic impressionistic portrait of Poe

They served punch with ice eyeballs in it. Here’s my drink.

Quothe the raven Nevermore!

Here’s an artist painting a tropical Poe scene, quothe the toucan, nevermore!

A few abstract, multicolored Poe inspired pics.

I visited the Poway Performing Arts Center recently during the day when only the office was open. The theater features some of the biggest acts in entertainment visiting San Diego including Kenny Rodgers,Clint Black, The Fabulous Thunderbirds, and many theatrical productions.
