Okay I’ll admit it. I don’t really get the appeal of the LA lifestyle. To visit, definitely, but to live, not really the way I roll. I don’t get the appeal.
When I think of LA, I think of blondes with artificially manipulated features.
Now first of all, I am not blond and have no desire to bleach my hair. Neither do I have desire for larger boobs. That would just likely result in back problems. As for botox, facelifts … etc., I like my wrinkles. They tell a story. So yes, it is true, I have absolutely no desire to look like a plasticized Barbie and am somewhat critical of the LA lifestyle for producing so many life-sized plasticized Barbies.
Now with my best bud, Brie Mason having moved to LA, I have to question whether or not I have just stereotyped the LA lifestyle, as this is definitely not her. Although we did have an argument one day about having ‘work done’. Thankful her husband, who is more LA than either of us, was on my side. So might it be that I have been stereotyping the LA culture or do I need to pull Brie away for regular Roamancing Adventures and regular reminders of her Canadian roots (Canadiana interventions if you will, but I do hate the ‘term’ intervention)?
Like with most things, I have decided it’s best to educate myself on the culture to better understand Brie in her new habitat. Now in the nick of time, there happens to be a Show designed just for that, with a few parallels to Brie’s world. A Vancouver family jumping back and forth between Vancouver and LA, in their attempt to make their mark on this World. The Show is called Dussault Inc. (about Jason Dussault, Mashiah Vaughn and their family) and is on Citytv Saturday nights at 8:30 pm. I’ll be tuning in the hopes of gaining an enlightened understanding into Brie’s new World and the LA-Vancouver Celebrity Making Culture.
Wish me luck!
