About Me

My photo
Southern California, United States

It's So Cal is a space where I will comment upon the fascinating and baffling desert in which I live, Southern California. The name comes from one of the greatest movie lines in one of the greatest movies of all time, which also takes place in Southern California, Chinatown. My version: "Forget it, Stacey. It's So Cal."
