Haylie loves Venice (in L.A.) because that was where she wrote her book. Yeah, she has a book that she’s selling. Anyway, she returns to her favorite spot and gets to cook on a food truck, which we learn is like number five on her Life’s Bucket List, right after getting permanent bikini line electrolysis so she no longer has to have Brazilians.

The first place she heads, however, is the Mojave Desert to a goat sanctuary. Good god, they are adorable. Its a goat rescue and the guy who runs it makes artisan cheese out of their milk. It turns out its not difficult to make goat cheese. You just let the milk sit for awhile to let the curds and whey separate, then you drain the curds and add some salt. I don’t know about you, but I know how my retirement will be spent.

I was so proud of Haylie for going out there all by herself with no friends, but she was obviously jonesin’ because she began referring to the baby goats as her “besties.” She wasn’t alone for long though, because — and I have to admit, this was so freakin’ perfect — Ali Fedotowsky from The Bachelorette showed up and she just loves to cook. I know, right?!

At the end of her perfect day, does Haylie lie in bed with visions of dinosaur kale dancing in her head? Does she wind down at the end of the night, the twinkle slowly leaving her eyes as she realizes that the spotlight is off and her life is empty? Tomorrow is another day, she tells herself. More opportunities to collect besties for the afterlife.

She shuts off the light.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
