Add to the mix 100s of classic vintage cars filling the streets every year during a weekend in July or August and you'll swear you've been transported to American Graffiti -- it's LA, Baby.

This year's event was attended by 1000s of attendees April 6-8 at the San Jose Convention Center, where the happiest surprise of all wasn't the famed pop culture celebrities but preteen and teenage scientists who exhibited their inventions ranging the gamut of genetic engineering to wearable glasses that actually move objects viewed through the lens.

One may not anticipate describing RuPaul's DragCon as “sacred” but attending last week's 2018 LA convention was nothing short of that.

LA Critical Mass, considered America's largest community bike ride, happens monthly, with 1000s of cyclists of all ages and skill levels riding in ad-hoc yet perfect formation, as if choreographed by the Joffrey's Mark Morris.

Lots of inspiration here...
"I learned from my dog long before I went to Gombe that we weren't the only beings with personalities. What the chimps did was help me to persuade others." (Jane Goodall, Primatologist and Anthropologist) Hosted last month in West Hollywood, PAWSAPALOOZA Festival & Marketplace was nothing if not an affirmative salute to pet pups and their boundless, forever childlike personalities. In addition to the scores of pups, contests and new product introductions was the most important, permeable attribute of all: Heart.
