How many skinny bitches does it take to make a bestseller?
With a steady following (and the help of celebrity photo-endorsers like Victoria Beckham and Jessica Alba), Skinny Bitch has become a runaway sensation. After less than two years in print, a whopping 600,000 copies exist worldwide and translation rights have been procured for seven different languages. Yes, there are wannabe skinny bitches everywhere.
We put together a full hour long Real G show to test out the concepts of a green lifestyle show with our unique dark green twist. The music for the most part is just temp music and wouldn’t make it to the real show. If some powerful producer likes what they see, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.The show is very rough, and not done exactly as we would have liked. We wanted to create a live audience show, but just couldn’t squeeze them into our studio, which was built into a real green house in Venice California.
The Real G is fast, furious and alternatively fueled.
Darker, cooler and edgier than its cousin green….‘G’ is where mind-expanding knowledge, eye-popping aesthetic, plant-based sustenance and beats per minute collide. ‘Real’ because we keep it that way. We introduce viewers to an organic lifestyle, which doesn’t cost a fortune or look like crap.
Each slick, sexy, sixty minute episode is shot ‘as live’ and features cutting edge fashion, design, cars, news, food, celebrities and music. While guests, bands and green chefs interact with our hosts at The Real G’s modern stylish studios in Venice, CA, our team of roving reporters hit the runways, highways, green carpets and more to bring us the best and the brightest of this emerging lifestyle.
The Real G. The rock n’ roll of green.

Here is a very interesting interview we did with John Picard, one of the Advisors for the BP Oil company. His job was to help them go green. See how he explains their thinking at the time and how they changed the companies name for British Petroleum to Beyond Petroleum. A name they thought would announce their new direction as world leaders in the new clean renewable energy market. Clean and green, is what BP wants to present, but reality is a whole other thing. Just ask the people living in the Gulf Coast.
John Picard is a name that you may not be familiar with… yet. This pioneer in sustainability has been quietly revolutionizing homes and businesses across the country. Here’s a brief history of his achievements:
– He started out as a builder and entrepreneur and is now a renowned building efficiency and sustainability expert.
- He was a core member of President Clinton’s “Greening of the White House” team.
- He’s president and founder of E2 Environmental Enterprises, whose clients include Microsoft, BP, eBay, Sony, Ford, The Gap, MGM, CAA and Live Earth, to name a few.

For those of you not fortunate enough to be on this year’s guest list (or able to pay $500 for a ticket) G Living will be your eyes and ears at this year’s 17th annual Environmental Media Awards (EMAs). We are taking G LIVING’s REAL G on location, couch and all. We will make sure Nobel Prize winner, Former Vice President Al Gore, and all his Hollywood friends get cozy on the G Living Couch and get real!
Blue-Eyed Son’s Andrew Heilprin is the former front man for 40 Watt Domain (the group that created the sonic surf smoke punk genre) whose album “West of Lincoln” shows off the singer/songwriter’s stripped down, acoustic side. An avid surfer and outdoorsman, Andrew recently stopped by to perform an exclusive 2-song set on The Real G and chat about his environmental concerns.
I caught up with Andrew this afternoon via telephone to find out what he’d been up to since his “great” (his word) experience on The Real G. He said he’d gone “to Mexico and scored some insane surf,” which he’s editing footage of right now for possible use on his website blueeyedson.com.
This recipe was adapted from ‘The Soul of a New Cuisine’ by Marcus Samuelsson, an Ethiopian born, Swedish raised chef with a restaurant in NYC. Then, quite by accident, I came across an article in the food section of the Tribune with a recipe calling for ginger beer and rum called a Dark&Stormy. Ginger beer can be found bottled in some super markets and international grocery stores.
The spiciness can be adjusted by either adding more or less ginger. But don’t be fooled, this is a great thirst quencher during the hot summer months.

Got $105,000 in loose change and a malleable idea of green? Then Lexus has just the vehicle for you. Also, want to hang out?
Primped and primed just in time for the holiday season, the LS 600h L is the most expensive Lexus ever built. Expect only a few valet parked at the Malibu Green Drinks. Only 2,000 are planned to be sold in North America.
The 600h is meant to target buyers of luxury sedan flagships from Mercedes, BMW and Audi. But perhaps sensing that a different approach is in order in an era where hypocrisy gets noticed, the Japanese automaker is approaching the arena with its own geeky swagger.
