At the Women's March LA

Posted on January 26, 2017 by Amazing Capes

With over 750,000 in attendance the women's march in Los Angeles was an overwhelming show of superheroes. Without a single arrest, the crowds illustrated the popular voice of our nation and the ethos and common ground so many of us share. Overwhelmingly so, it was a great day for expressing good over evil, enthusiasm over apathy and positivity above despair.  As events unfold in the days ahead, let's always remind ourselves that we the people, have power. 

Change will not come if we wait for some other person or some other time. We are the ones we've been waiting for. We are the change that we seek. -Barack Obama

Episode 8: Brite Lite LA

Posted on April 26, 2013 by Amazing Capes

We snuck into the sprawling city of Los Angeles around 3:30 in the morning last Friday. After fueling up at a diner in the neighborhood of Los Feliz, we soon awoke to the sunlit glory land of American film and media. The city hums with possibility and the excitement of whoknowswhatcouldhappentoday – and for this reason, along with beloved Carolina friends & the weather it happens to be one of my/Rox’s favorites. It was a balmy 75 degrees outside as we took to the streets. Wanda got fixed (again!) and cruised around the town- Sunset Boulevard, Griffin Park, Beverly Hills, Hollywood… scouting for anythingandeveryone. Lemon Yellow Sun Warrior she is. 

A little flashback- 3 years ago, I flew from Southeast Asia into LAX and had the time of my life not knowing what I was doing. However, if you check out this Hollywood pic, you’ll notice one thing… I’m rocking a cape I had made while finding my way through Vietnam. So to come full circle, it was a joy to approach the city fresh from the east this time, and to reflect on how following dreams and having persistence can truly take effect. Who knows what can happen in another 3 years... I imagine there will be a lot more Amazing Capes... with superheros rocking all kinds of future styles to boot! Another joy was seeing my friend Katie McNeill who is helping produce the most beautiful movies... go see her latest: The Place Beyond the Pines. (!!)

Stay tuned for our first commercial too… directed by Ernie Gilbert on a carwash on Santa Monica Blvd, it should be a fun one :) 

AC Truth 8: Those ideas you have, the ones that appear in your mind with a fury and a glimmer of light? Strap them to your watch. Tattoo them to your mind. Time can be an elusive little devil, don't let it get the best of your brightest brain waves.
