Life Behind the Orange Curtain

The Notorious Victory G.
17 October 1982
The tales and misadventures of your average beach blonde, sun baked Southern California girl, from the home city of big boat named Mary. Nothing to see here people, move along!

Buuuuuut, just in case you've decided to stick around, do leave a comment so I know you exist and can add you back.

Finally, I'd like conclude with a little ditty about my home city:

"We're a little rough around the edges. We're the bastards of LA county and the OC thinks we're trash. But we grew up in an ethnic utopia and are better people because of it. We watched our backyard bands Sublime, No Doubt, and Reel Big Fish turn into stars. We had friends in both the Lakewood Country Club and the projects of Carmelitos. We raised dozens of world-class athletes and Hollywood movie stars. We watched Snoop and Warren G at VIP records after school. We ate lunch in the quad after the Rodney King riots and knew we would be ok. We've tried to do the LA scene and were turned off by its aggressive superficiality. Then we tried the OC thing and realized we weren't white enough. So we came back, asking how our city could be so different when it's lodged right in the middle. I say we stay put and be happy we aren't as pretty, aren't as worldly, aren't as snobby. We are Long Beach and that's good enough for us."

Thank you,

Teh Storm Management Team.
