Is everybody ready? Alright, let’s get this race started. The world is waiting for you….
Hold it! A little detour. 😀
The Sophomore Slump Recommends
Music: Embrya by Maxwell – Nobody makes real Neo Soul music anymore. Thank goodness we have at least Maxwell’s music to go back to.
Remember this iconic MTV Unplugged performance? Here is Maxwell’s rendition of “This Woman’s Work” (not part of the album Embrya).
Movie: Blue Jasmine – Probably, arguably, the best female acting performance of the decade by far. Cate Blanchett is incredibly mesmerizing.
This is part of my once a month California post.
This is a redo of an older post, My Amazing Race (click here).
I used to watch The Amazing Race religiously before. The I stopped for a very very long time. I probably just returned watching it again about a year and a half ago. I started downloading seasons that I missed. I wasn’t actually aware that I’ve already been to some of The Amazing Race’s starting lines in California were.
Out of the 25 seasons of The Amazing Race, 15 of it started in California. And out of those 15, I’ve been to 9 of them. Not bad eh. 🙂 Two I included are general areas which are Santa Barbara and Pasadena. All others are exact locations. The only one that I actually became aware of because of the show was Hsi Lai Temple.
On my mark, travel safe, Go!
