One of the best thing about living in LA is getting out of the city for weekend getaways. There are so many great places only a few hours from the city, and it’s a great contrast traveling from the concrete jungle to the beautiful mountains that surround us! This past weekend we drove to Ojai, CA, and had an amazing and relaxing weekend in this cute little town. We definitely recommend taking the short hour and a half trek to Ojai from Los Angeles and want to highlight some things you must do while there.
Highlights from our trip:
Boat ride on lake Casitas
Wine tasting at a few local wineries
Barts outdoor bookstore
Beautiful lookout and hike at meditation mount
Shopping in downtown Ojai
Ojai has some great festivals too, check out the community calendar and pick a time to visit!
We are so happy to annouce that our song “Miserable” from our latest record Last Forest In The City will be featured on Showtimes SHAMELESS, Season 3, Ep. 3. It will air Sunday January 27th 2013 9pm ET/PT. We are really excited about this and want to give big shout out to our peeps at AngryMob Music/Happy People Music for helping us land this spot! Spread the news! Pass it on!
One night we came home late from a little date night of ice skating and coffee. We stopped at the store and found this flapjack and waffle mix we have never had before, and nothing is better than eating breakfast food late at night, right? Well this mix made flapjacks from heaven! If manna tasted like anything I image it like Kodiak Cakes. I (Roman) cant stop eating them, I’ve even tried other liquids to mix when making the batter instead of just water (as what it calls for), such as vanilla coconut milk and even Samuel Adams Winter Lager. A spiced beer with this mix is by far the best. To top it off we used some real Canadian maple syrup, Alaina is proud Canadian, she doesn’t mess around. Just thought I’d let you all know. Next time you need some comfort food get some Kodiak Cakes mix. Makes you want to go to camping in Canada ay buddy?
We just signed onto our first music placement and licensing group called Happy People Music, which is a branch of Angry Mob Music based out of Santa Monica. The artists in Happy People Music share a strong independent spirit. This musical and creative independence defines the emerging Happy People artist. We are really excited to be working with them, they are one of those few music companies that are extremely supportive of the artist and their artistry. If you are looking to license music for any of your projects or films you must check them out, there is some great new artist with a amazing variety of musical flavors!

If you live in Los Angeles and are looking for a quick vacation out of the city you need to check out Julian, CA.
Many people have never heard of this little historical town in San Diego County surrounded by apple orchards and vineyards.
There are many private cabins available to rent in the mountains near town, and the village is filled with antique stores, galleries, and bakeries serving fresh apple pie!
The cabin that we rented was called Eden Paradise Retreat, definitely recommend going here. The price was very reasonable to rent the cabin for the weekend, we showed up to fresh baked pie and cider, and the view was breathtaking!
If you would like to check out the cabin, click here.
