As the Woolsey Fire burns throughout Southern California, several Hollywood homes and historical sets have been put in danger, if not already destroyed. The fire, which blew south from Ventura County over the 101 freeway early Friday morning, had begun assaulting Malibu and the surrounding area over the weekend.

The homes of many celebrities are in danger from the flames, but people are evacuating and getting to safety.





Many buildings have been lost. The homes of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Camille Grammer, singer Robin Thicke, actor Gerard Butler, and director Scott Derrickson have all been reported to be consumed in the flames.

Paramount Ranch also succumbed to the flames, taking with it many sets used throughout the years. The national park hosted a "western" town and sets that were used in TV Shows like Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman and Westworld, and movies stretching as far back as the 1932 horror movie The Island of Lost Souls.

Luckily, no one was using the park that day, so no lives have been reported lost there.





California wildfires have been devastating the last decade due to drier conditions and high winds that allow flames to spread more quickly than they can often be put out. The state has filed for FEMA assistance, but the request is pending. However, due to the words of the President, some are questioning if the state will even receive federal funds to help.

Every time I listen to Bjork's "Unravel," my heart breaks a bit.

Have you ever listened to it?

It's on Homogenic, her third studio album, and it's incredible, passionate, smartly produced and a great showcase for her stupendous voice.

That song? An emotional rollercoaster, for sure.

There's tons of great music out there, though, and even more sad and gorgeous songs to discover.

Unfortunately, a friendship could really end at any point in life.

Friends grow apart, but also, sometimes, it's just necessary to say goodbye to your relationship with a friend.

Maybe they aren't the right type of friend for you anymore, or maybe something has happened in their lives to make them self-destructive and toxic.

The reasons are many, and they are all sad.

Certain personalities show up at almost every party like clockwork.

There's always that person who get's too drunk, someone awkwardly standing in the corner nursing a drink, the person who's not having a good time no matter what and the person babysitting the crowd they came with.
