Doh-cumentary!

Creceda LeMaire, of Rockstar Magnifesto came to me a couple months ago with her idea for an eco-fashion documentary. We yapped over lunch, did a little brainstorming, then went our ways. Creceda’s been busy since that lunch, diving head first into all things eco-fashion. She’s interviewed several eco designers and filmed the Ethical Fashion Show [...]

Who pulled the plug?

I had the chance to see “Who Killed the Electric Car?” this weekend with Siel and Anna. I’ve been meaning to check it out since it opened in LA on June 28th. My curiosity peaked after a chat with Paul Scott, an activist who was featured in the movie, at Green Drinks. Below, a picture [...]

Free Gore!

There’ll be a free screening of An Inconvenient Truth this Saturday at the LA Film Festival. I’ve already seen it with my pal Siel, but the husband has been itching to check it out. We’ll probably go to a theatre a little closer to us, and leave the free spots to folks who might not [...]
