It's Good to be King

Written by Bakersfield Magazine

alt

Who would’ve thunk that me, myself, I would be a direct blood relative of one of our county’s founding fathers? A descendant with distinction. A member of the local historical peerage. It’s true!

Don't touch the hair

Written by Isabel Alvarez

alt

Aside from clothes, shoes, and accessories, hair is a big piece of the puzzle when making a personal statement and standing out in a crowd.

Ahh, youth

Written by Anika Henrikson

alt

I like to think very few of my childhood quirks have survived the rigors of adulthood. I want to know that I've matured in both mannerism and mentality. That the things I once had no tolerance for are now a part of my daily life. Like appreciating a Woody Allen movie or actually getting a Monty Python joke.

Color Your Winter!

Written by Isabel Alvarez

alt

Summer is full of hot, risky trends and bright attention-grabbing colors. As soon as temperatures start to hit low 70s, winter pushes its way into the picture, and our wardrobe starts to get a bit drab.

Holiday Rituals

Written by Anika Henrikson

alt

It's easy to get swept up in the romance of the holidays. All that cheer! The merriment! Decking the halls, caroling, and what have you. So many holiday-themed events are coming up, including Ronald McDonald Houses' Enchanted Forest and BARC's Magical Forest, and Bakersfield seems to be straddling the cusp of Autumn evenings and Winter nights. I can smell Christmas in the air. Or at least I think it's Christmas...it's hard to tell with the piña colada-scented air freshener in my car.

Magazine Maladies

Written by Anika Henrikson

alt

A collective sigh of relief spread through the office today. It was the usual “end-of-an-issue” sigh. You know, the kind of sigh accompanied by girlish laughter and a feeling that can only be described as “editorial euphoria.” Which will henceforth be known as Euphitorial (patent pending). Many of us in the office suffer from this condition.

In Last Place?

Written by Anika Henrikson

alt

In theory, blogging is easy. One simply has to jot down a few anecdotes, a life lesson, a handful of opinions...and bingo-bango you've got a blog. And, in theory, your electronic diatribes will resonate with at least one person and you'll have a follower.

...As I Was Saying

Written by Les Corum

alt

...as I was saying (writing), all of this high-tech stuff is a little overwhelming to a guy that remembers being worried about bomb shelters in the mid-'50s, along with pink and black jackets, blue suede shoes, '55 Chevys, Andre's, Stan's, and the famous Michener's Drive Ins. Whoops. There I go, dating myself.

I'm blogging now?

Written by Les Corum

alt

A blog? Our Executive Editor (yes, he's my son) thinks I should communicate with the world. When I asked him “what should I communicate?” his reply was “stuff...but make it cutting edge.”

I swear, he's more like his mother than ever (thank God).

Several paragraphs that could be replaced with "Hello"

Written by Anika Henrikson

alt

Welcome to the new and improved Bakersfield Magazine website. I'd like to electronically welcome you to this blog. Hello!

You might be wondering why I'd title my blog “Alliteration Aside,” when, clearly, I'm a huge literary nerd. Seeing as I generally condone the use of alliteration in any form (assonance or consonance), why would I want to excuse it?
