Testing the waters…

Hello! I’m new around these parts and I’m super excited to be here. I hope I can bring you an interesting and (ideally) fabulous perspective on what’s happening in this fair city of ours, and I’m excited to learn more about Los Angeles in the process.


So, about me: I’m Canadian, from North of Toronto, but I will try my damndest to always use American spellings. I shipped my life across the continent about two and a half years ago to go to grad school at UCLA, where I research and teach about popular music. It’s a pretty sweet gig – yesterday I spent an hour watching Lady Gaga videos under the auspices of “working.” I’ve been blogging for a few years now, mostly about music, terrible B movies from the 50s and 60s, and vintage dresses, my three primary obsessions. And for the past year or so, I’ve been on an unofficial quest to find the best donut and/or example of donut-themed architechture in the greater LA area – any hot tips would be much appreciated.

Thanks for having me on board! I’m really happy to be a part of LA Metblogs and I promise to deliver awesomness.

  1. Great to have you on board! And oh my god, how did I manage to bring THREE ladies from the land of Canadia on board in this latest round of new bloggers?! Is there some conspiracy here?! :D

    (I do love me some Canadians. You’re all so damn nice.)

  2. All these Canadians! Does this mean we’re getting free health care? Because I have a nasty case of the sucking chest wounds.

    Welcome, fellow greenie. :)

  3. Lucinda – Janna is not Canadian, she is “almost” Canadian. Unfortunately Xandra is from Ontario which means that I can’t acknowledge her as a true Canadian because I’m from Vancouver, British Columbia and we don’t like anyone east of the Rockies. It’s all very complicated that’s why I have lived in the US for 9+ years and am married to an American.

    Oh ya, welcome Xandra!
