Joz... sounds like "Jaws" jozjozjoz is an asian american gal who lives and blogs underneath the hollywood sign and who doesn’t clean her fishtank unless the fish starts to do the backstroke. she is also able to leap tall buildings in a single bound, but cannot stop from bumping into door handles, cabinet doors, and anything else that protrudes or has a sharp edge. she does not run with scissors for this same reason. she can pet the fur off a dog but don’t ask her to go anywhere near a horse. or a moth. or a roach. her dealings with L.A.’s finest (aka the parking violations department) are legend, as are her giant sneezes. Other than the two too many joz’s, jozjozjoz is a perfectly normal, relatively sane individual who defies the odds, reaches for the stars, and carries moonbeams home in a jar. She’d rather be a fish… but not in her own dirty fishtank. aside from her personal blog at, she also writes at

Vox Femina Los Angeles presents 'All The World's A Stage'

There’s an exciting collaboration between two different kinds of women’s performing arts groups this weekend…

Entitled “All The World’s A Stage”, Vox Femina Los Angeles presents this unique concert of Shakespearean text set to music with scenes performed by the Los Angeles Women’s Shakespeare Company. Highlights include scenes from “Romeo & Juliet,” “Twelfth Night” and more.

Aside from the collaboration itself, what’s unusual about this performance is the fact that all the Shakespeare is being performed completely by women, either theatrically, or in song. If you’ve never been to Zipper Hall (located in the Colburn School of Performing Arts), it is a wonderful venue, directly across the street from the Walt Disney Concert Hall, next to MOCA.

And if it takes a special offer to get you there, I’ve arranged for you to get $5 off the regular ticket price of $20 if you mention at the box office.

The reason I’m slightly MIA at the moment…

… is because I am in the process of moving. (Not that anyone here at would have missed me since this is my first post.)

The nutshell version is that we were blissfully living in a small guest house in Mar Vista and our landlords let us know on March 6 that they are selling the house and wanted us out by the end of the month. Needless to say, we are in packing/moving hell right now.

Anyway, it occurred to me today yesterday (I’ve been up all night) when we were setting up our new land line that I will be moving out of the 310 and into the 323… not that there’s anything wrong with that!

It is just strange to me because October of this year would’ve been my 10 year anniversary of living on the Westside.

Who knew that a simple change of area code would knock so much wistful nostalgia into me?

As much as I’m looking forward to our new place, I am going to miss the Westside…
