A Little Early For Halloween In La Jolla

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

After closing the sale of my parents home in Oceanside,  unfortunately, my Dad fell down and ended up in the La Jolla VA hospital at the escrow office.  A beautiful sweet woman in the parking lot saw it happen, helped me lift him up and gave him some bandages. She really reaffirmed my faith in human nature.

Afterwards, we went to visit him at the hospital.  Then, my date & I went to La Jolla shores for dinner.  We saw this restaurant  called Barbarella that was decorated thoroughly with these scary animated Halloween characters. In fact, it was so scary that my date didn’t want to eat there because of the giant fake spiders, even if they were near a romantic fireplace.

Since my “Day of the Dead” pictures from a few years ago became my most popular blog, I figured that I should share some of these fun early resHalloween  images as well.  My Dad is feeling better now too.

Santa Clones

Since I’m Jewish, when I was a child, my parents told me Santa was fake.  I went to school and told all the other kids he was fake too! Boy was I on the naughty list after that! I had to go to the principal’s office and he met with my parents.  The principal told me that even if he wasn’t real, it’s not nice to tell the other kids.  I cried and apologized, but now I can’t help telling the truth and these pictures  of multiple Santas in an Ocean Beach bar prove it.

Day Of The Dead In a Real Cemetery!

Today November 1st, is the Mexican Day of the Dead or Dia de los Muertos. It’s a holiday  with a Halloweenish  flavor. Last week, I was invited by a friend who eats fire and walk on stilts for a living named J7 to go to a Day of the Dead ceremony in a real San Diego cemetery, La Vista Memorial Park in National City on her Facebook page.  It was amazing!

Here I am below with face paint on for the event as the clown of death. The face painter liked my autobiographical novel, “Naked Skydiving” so much, she traded me her work for a signed copy of my book. The face painting cost less than my books so she gave me $5 on top of that!

The event had a carnival like atmosphere in the cemetery. There was a main stage

where many people were in costumes wearing day of the Dead skeleton face paintings.

and personal items. Here are some altars that are homages to dead relatives:

Secret High Tech Accessory to Be Revealed Tonight At 57 Degrees

A secret high tech accessory will be revealed to the world for the first time tonight at Tennessee and Jordan’s art exhibit, which is part of Guy Lombardo’s 57 Degrees Art Show,featuring music by Mantis and a fantastic light show by Kinetic Collage.  Tennessee’s art, though mainly abstract, colorful and playful, has now become wearable art, featuring custom designer clothes, handbags, and bracelets.  The newest addition is an innovation that will compliment the hottest gadget that will be released by major cellphone companies in the neat future, the smartwatch.  Jordan saw Tennessee painting on bracelets while he watched news reports of smartwatches soon to be available to the world from Apple, Pebble and Samsung.  All of the watchbands seemed to be so dull.  So he thought that many people  would enjoy having a more colorful smartwatchband instead.  He asked her to create a few prototypes and these are featured in tonight’s art show at 6:30pm @ the 57 Degrees Winebar,1735 Hancock Street, San Diego, CA 92101.  He noticed how there are many __TEMP__d646aae06049d572ce20abfb80b206da-1330248327_5042_IMG_20130408_150419 colorful cellphone cases at stores, but most watchbands, including smartwatchbands are not very exciting.  So why not jazz them up? Admission is free.  Art, ArtsymartWatchbands,and drinks are available for purchase.  Your “Artsy SmartWatchbands” can be used as a bracelet until the smartwatches are available at your major cellphone careers around the world.  At that time, Tennessee will attach your smartwatch at no additional cost. Jordan has also named many of the paintings including one about fracking titled, “What the Frack?” , “Would You Like Flies With Your Horsemeat?” and many others.  Come to the event, see many other artists creations and star in a YOUtopiamedia video tonight!

Happy Holidays From YOUtopiamedia.com To All Our Readers!

IMG_00000167YOUtopiamedia.com is undergoing several changes and will be bigger and better than ever, now that I have completed all of my certifications in Interactive Media and have the Adobe CS6 Creative Cloud at my fingertips as well as a smokin’ gently used 64 bit PC courtesy of ComputerBears.wordpress.com for editing video and every other use under the sun! This web page will continue to promote my autobiographical novel and feature creative life in San Diego. I am considering using it as a creative hybrid site, mostly for my writing while starting one just for government corporate web design clients to demonstrate what I can do in that arena, since I am seeking a new web design position now with a large organization. It’s nice to know that I have a bit of a following for what I write, even though it has yet to be a financial windfall. I will also be developing a Facebook page for this site and the corporate one. I will put some cool projects on here that I did in my classes soon and hopefully you will all continue to enjoy them, at least until the world ends on Dec 21, according to the Mayan Calendar scam.
