Whether the beach, camp site or fishing retreat is your final destination, getting there by car is so old school. Why spend time driving, when as a private pilot you can arrive in a third of the time it would have taken had you traveled by car? Flying yourself also gives you access to sites and scenery that can be impossible or difficult to reach by automobile. What’s more, a private airplane --that you can rent or own-- provides a measure of flexibility that allows you to, for example, enjoy a weekend at a faraway destination while still getting home in time for work on Monday morning. Sponsored by the nonprofit Aircraft Owners and Pilots Association, the program works with flight schools across the country to offer intro flights starting at around $99. While all this sounds all well and good we felt the need and responsibility to you the reader to send our travel correspondent Candice Molina to the Fullerton California Flight Training Center one of the 3500 Flight Training Centers located in the United States. Ok so we thought it’d be really cool as well. Especially since she’d always said she’d wanted to try flying an airplane. Upon arrival she was ushered into the Flight Training Center for a pre-flight briefing. This is where she was given an overview of the flight process and some preliminary instruction on the aircraft she would be piloting. There was also some familiarity training to make sure the student is well aware and comfortable with the different aspects of the aircraft. This pre-flight briefing lasted about 30 minutes if you were actually picking up on the information they were giving you. One of the interesting things to note is the fact that they even go over radio protocols and teach you what you especially need to be listening for during radio chatter which can be confusing if you don’t know what you’re doing. After reviewing some of the videos the FAA requires it was off to meet the instructor. Stepping out on the tarmac Candice engaged in the pre-flight check of the aircraft with her instructor. After the pre-flight it was off to taxi which Candice got to assist with. Once cleared for take off it was off to the races. There is a distinct difference in taking off when you’re sitting in the cabin of a commercial jet liner and when you’re sitting in the front seat with the yoke in your hand. Things move much faster that way. One minute you’re looking at the horizon and then the next second all you see is sky. The flight took about 45 minutes total and from Fullerton airport we flew out just past Long Beach and Torrance, then turned out over the ocean heading toward Catalina. Handling the plane was very much similar to driving a sports car only a plane is faster and even more responsive. Imagine THINKING about making a turn and barely touching the yoke and having it happen. This was a most phenominal experience and certainly is something I would strongly recommend to anyone if even to only say that once they flew a plane.

Yamazaki has distinct characteristics that highlight its authentic Japanese heritage and set it apart from other whiskeys. A perfect climate and pure water are nature’s contribution to its unique flavor, but the use of American, Spanish and Japanese casks are a clear departure from traditional whiskey making. The Japanese oak adds a subtle sweetness and spicy flavor creating a taste that is truly distinct to Japan. Looking for a gift that eludes taste, discovery and quality – then Yamazaki is the choice. Yamazaki 12 Year Old is available for $44.99 and Yamazaki 18 Year Old is available for $119.99. More information and images are available at EDITOR’S. NOTE: Yamazaki is not for the faint of heart! It’s strong, raw, and full flavored, and mixes WELL with lemon lime soda. Not being a whiskey drinker myself I DID enjoy Yamazaki, but I defaulted to the judgement of mama Molina who is the resident whiskey resident. She really enjoyed the 12 year old but nearly lost her mind over the 18 year old samples she got! And of course she now wants more of the 18 year old! FUNCTION MEETS FASHION: RADIUS The best way to upgrade your iPod? Hip headphones that don’t break the bank. New Radius earphones are adjustable (so you don’t have to wear earphones meant for Dennis Kucinich and they actually stay put when you’re on the go) and they come in a variety of colors. Oh, and at less than $40 a pop, they’re half the price of comparable earphones… music to your ears? It certainly was to ours. I’ve been using these for a couple months now and I must say they really are incredible. Sound dampening, and quality is HIGH! In other words don’t watch porno with these when someone can walk in.

God on Trial

Who is to blame for the greatest of all crimes? Facing extermination at Auschwitz, a group of prisoners solemnly weighs the case against God. Following the harrowing ritual of selection for death or hard labor, a group of new inmates un sure of their appointed fates begins asking how God could allow for so much suffering. Impulsively, the men decide to put God on trial for abandoning His chosen people. Amid the sound of prisoners outside being marched to the gas chamber, the trial unfolds, addressing the age-old question: How can there be evil in a universe ruled by an all-powerful, benevolent God? Some of the prisoners are passionate defenders of their faith, but as the hour approaches when many of them will be chosen to die, they reach a verdict. It is a surprising conclusion to this challenging and respectful proceeding. To order any DVD or VHS release from WGBH Boston Video, including God on Trial, please call (800) 949-8670 or visit SRP: $24.95 NOTE: God On Trial is not for stupid people! It is INCREDIBLY put together and makes me wonder why it’s not on the big screen! This movie is very cerebral. Like Law & Order on steroids! It amazes me how brilliant the writing and acting is. Absolutely FANTASTIC!

This film is amazing. World renowned underwater cinematographer, Howard Hall, and his science and production team used a 1300-pound IMAX 3D camera to film some of the most amazing footage I’ve ever seen of deep ocean life, including great white sharks, the world’s largest stingrays, giant sea turtles, the exotic Leafy Sea Dragon, as well as many other beautiful marine life. There is a scene where South Australian Sea Lions rush up to the camera and actually enjoy the experience of being filmed. The point of the film is to take audiences on a deep sea adventure in 3D (you feel like you are really there with the divers) to awaken them to the beauty of our deep oceans and why it is now critical we take steps to save them. Our crack team of reviewers really enjoyed this movie, and were surprised to hear Jim Carey narrating it! It’s certainly a go see type film. Especially if you’ve not seen an IMAX movie! Its performance is unparalleled. Its silhouette is streamlined. And in true TechnoMarine style, its substance is surprising. Now, following the solid 18k rose gold version are three new variations that call on TechnoMarine’s visionary design and legendary mastery of diverse materials: the P1 Stainless Steel, the P1 Titanium, and the P1 Stainless Steel/black PVD. Accents of colored aluminum, black carbon fiber, and PVD, along with rubber straps complement the Royale Marine’s unique shape, inspired by the graceful yet strong angles of ultra-modern yachts. The watches offer a raft of superior technical features, including a crown cleverly placed off-center at “4 o’clock” for the diver’s comfort, 660 foot depth water resistance, and large luminescent indexes that can be read while on the move. But their high end precision features automatic Swiss ETA2824 movement, sophisticated dial design, and many other design details will appeal on land as well. TechnoMarine watches retail from $210 to $10,000 and are available at online at


Armed forces entertainment brings us this new and wonderful group. Los Bad Apples is a Latin Hip-Hop band who has opened for Ludacris and Duffy (among others), and who’s currently on tour in of all places to be on a tour the Middle East performing for troops and filming a documentary with an award-winning filmmaker. It is our thinking that Los Bad Apples are going to be to latin hip hop what Selena was to Tejano music. And of course it’s good listening for those who don’t particularly care for latin music. I mean c’mon how could you not tap your feet to the strong hip hop influenced latin beats? The music for the most part is party time music. Fun and light hearted! You can check more out at their website at or on myspace @ They get the Green light from HighSpeed Magazine! To get your product, movie, or music reviewed please send an email to us at
