DIY FATHER’S DAY AT THE BEACH! – FIREBALL MALIBU VLOG 625 – For Father’s Day, Fireball grabs his Pop and takes the fam to the beach at #SycamoreCove Malibu.

About Sycamore Cove from Jonathan StullWhile Sycamore Canyon Campground and the trails into the Santa Monica mountains steal the show, Sycamore Cove Beach boasts a day use area and relaxing sandy shores and rolling waves that are ideal for swimming, body surfing, and surf fishing.

Sycamore Cove Beach is part of Point Mugu State Park and its 5 miles of coastline and two canyon watersheds that empty into the Pacific. Picnic tables and barbecues are available along the shore—as are the seagulls, of course. The beach is also patrolled by lifeguards.

Be sure to take advantage of the Sycamore Canyon Nature Center nearby to learn about the area’s native flora and fauna.

Permanent populations of harbor seals, California sea lions, and dolphins may be spotted offshore in addition to migrating California gray whales.

Those who use the beach as a hub for day hikes into Boney Mountain State Wilderness Area may be treated to monarch butterflies, which rest on the trees at Sycamore Canyon Campground, Nutgall’s woodpeckers, California thrashers, and more. Wildlife in the mountains includes mule deer, gray foxes, and mountain lions.


HOLLYWOOD WALK OF FAME VLOG! – FIREBALL MALIBU VLOG 624 – After some shenanigans in the Bu, Fireball grabs his niece Alexa and his brother Ethan for a jaunt to Hollywood for a VIP Screening of CARS 3!

About the HOLLYWOOD WALK OF FAME from WIKI… The #HollywoodWalkofFame comprises more than 2,600 five-pointed terrazzo and brass stars embedded in the sidewalks along 15 blocks of Hollywood Boulevard and three blocks of Vine Street in Hollywood, California.

The stars are permanent public monuments to achievement in the entertainment industry, bearing the names of a mix of actors, musicians, directors, producers, musical and theatrical groups, fictional characters, and others.

The Walk of Fame is administered by the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce and maintained by the self-financing Hollywood Historic Trust. It is a popular tourist destination, with a reported 10 million visitors in 2003.

The Walk of Fame runs 1.3 miles (2.1 km) east to west on Hollywood Boulevard from Gower Street to La Brea Avenue, plus a short segment of Marshfield Way that runs diagonally between Hollywood and La Brea; and 0.4 miles (0.7 km) north to south on Vine Street between Yucca Street and Sunset Boulevard.

According to a 2003 report by the market research firm NPO Plog Research, the Walk attracts about 10 million visitors annually—more than Sunset Strip, TCL Chinese Theatre (formerly Grauman’s), the Queen Mary, and the Los Angeles County Museum of Art—and has played an important role in making tourism the largest industry in Los Angeles County.

As of 2017, the Walk of Fame comprises over 2,600 stars, spaced at 6-foot (1.8 m) intervals.

The monuments are coral-pink terrazzo five-point stars rimmed with brass (not bronze, an oft-repeated inaccuracy) inlaid into a charcoal-colored terrazzo background. In the upper portion of each star field the name of the honoree is inlaid in brass block letters.

Below the inscription, in the lower half of the star field, a round inlaid brass emblem indicates the category of the honoree’s contributions. The emblems symbolize five categories within the entertainment industry.


BRITISH INVASION CAR SHOW! – FIREBALL MALIBU VLOG 623 – Fireball grabs a McLaren from The English Car Company and heads to the Automobile Driving Museum for a British Invasion Car Show!

Some cool English Car info from WIKI… The McLaren MP4-12C, later known simply as the McLaren 12C, is a sports car designed and manufactured by McLaren Automotive. It is the first production car wholly designed and built by McLaren since the McLaren F1, which ended production in 1998.

The car’s final design was unveiled in September 2009, and was launched in mid-2011.

The MP4-12C features a carbon fibre composite chassis, and is powered by a mid-mounted McLaren M838T 3.8-litre V8, twin-turbo engine developing approximately 592 hp (441 kW; 600 PS) and around 443 lb·ft (601 N·m) of torque.

The car makes use of Formula 1-sourced technologies such as “brake steer”, where the inside rear wheel is braked during fast cornering to reduce understeer. Power is transmitted to the wheels through a seven-speed seamless shift dual-clutch gearbox.

A convertible version of the car called the MP4-12C Spider, renamed the 12C Spider in 2012, is also available. In February 2014, McLaren announced the related 650S, with revised bodywork, upgraded engine and other technical improvements. In April 2014, McLaren announced the end of production of the 12C.

The Jaguar C-Type (also called the Jaguar XK120-C) is a racing sports car built by Jaguar and sold from 1951 to 1953. The “C” stands for “competition”.

The car used the running gear (Moss gearbox) of the contemporary road proven XK120 in a lightweight tubular frame (devised by William Heynes) and aerodynamic aluminium body designed by Malcolm Sayer.

A total of 53 C-Types were built, 43 of which were sold to private owners mainly in the US.

The road-going XK120’s 3.4-litre twin-cam, straight-6 engine produces between 160 and 180 bhp (134 kW). The C-Type version was originally tuned to around 205 bhp (153 kW).

The early C-Types were fitted with SU carburetors and drum brakes. Later C-Types (mid 1953) are more powerful, using triple twin-choke Weber carburettors and high-lift camshafts. They are also lighter, and from mid 1953 braking performance was improved by disc brakes on all four wheels.

The lightweight, multi-tubular, triangulated frame was designed by William Heynes. Malcolm Sayer designed the aerodynamic body.

JONATHAN BANKS CELEBRITY DRIVE! – FIREBALL MALIBU VLOG 622 – Fireball entertains the likes of Actor Jonathan Banks (Breaking Bad & Better Call Saul) and his wife at The Automobile Driving Museum. This episode includes a Packard Carribean and a Studebaker Wagon.

More about Johnny from WIKI… Jonathan Ray Banks is an American actor. His first notable film roles were in the films Airplane!, 48 Hrs., and Beverly Hills Cop.

He has received critical acclaim for his role as Mike Ehrmantraut in the television series Breaking Bad and its spin-off, Better Call Saul, as well as Frank McPike in Wiseguy. He has received four Primetime Emmy Award nominations for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama Series.

In 1974, Banks moved to Los Angeles and performed on stage before picking up bit parts on television. He notably starred in the 1974 sex PSA Linda’s Film on Menstruation, which was referenced by John Oliver in an episode of his show Last Week Tonight with John Oliver focusing on sex education.

The episode aired on August 9, 2015, and Banks appeared at the end of the segment, ridiculing the content of said PSA. He co-starred in 48 Hrs. and #BeverlyHillsCop, which are among his best known roles.

Other film roles include appearances in Armed and Dangerous, Buckaroo Banzai, Freejack, Flipper, Airplane!, Gremlins, Murder Me, Murder You, Under Siege 2: Dark Territory, and Identity Thief.

Banks’ big break on television came in 1987 with the series Wiseguy, in which he played Frank McPike for four years, a role which led to a Primetime Emmy Award nomination. Although his character was primarily the hero’s mentor, stories occasionally featured McPike as hero.

In 1981, he appeared as Dutch Schultz on the NBC series the Gangster Chronicles. He also starred on the short-lived science fiction series Otherworld, as Kommander Nuveen Kroll, and in the sitcom Fired Up.

In the second season of #BreakingBad, Banks appeared as #MikeEhrmantraut. He became a series regular for the third, fourth, and fifth seasons.

For the fifth season, he received a Primetime Emmy Award nomination for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama Series. He also made guest appearances on several TV shows.

In 2014, he had a recurring role as Buzz Hickey in the fifth season of the NBC sitcom Community.[12] Banks reprised his role as Mike Ehrmantraut as a regular in the Breaking Bad spinoff series #BetterCallSaul, for which he earned his third Emmy nomination in season 1.

In April 2016, he was awarded an honorary doctoral degree from Indiana University.

He also played the voice of James Gordon in the 2015 video game Batman: Arkham Knight. In 2015, Banks made a special guest appearance on the Mythbusters episode “Supernatural Shooters”.


COFFEE, COPS AND CLASSIC POLICE CARS! – FIREBALL MALIBU VLOG 621 – Fireball heads to a morning event at Caffe Luxxe with Kathie, Ken & Tony Dow in Malibu for COFFEE, COPS AND CLASSIC POLICE CARS. Then goes house hunting.

From WIKI… A police car (also called a #policecruiser, #copcar, prowler, #squadcar, radio car or radio mobile patrol (RMP) ) is a ground vehicle used by police for transportation during #patrols and to enable them to respond to incidents.

Typical uses of a police car include transporting officers so they can reach the scene of an incident quickly, transporting and temporarily detaining suspects in the back seats, as a location to use their police radio or laptop or to patrol an area, all while providing a visible deterrent to crime.

Some police cars are specially adapted for certain locations (e.g. traffic duty on busy roads) or for certain operations (e.g. to transport police dogs or bomb squads). Police cars typically have rooftop flashing lights, a siren, and emblems or markings indicating that the vehicle is a police car.

Some police cars may have reinforced bumpers and alley lights, for illuminating darkened allies.

Terms for police cars include (police) cruiser, squad car, area car and patrol car. In some places, a police car may also be informally known as a cop car, a black and white, a cherry top, a gumball machine, a jam sandwich or panda car.

Depending on the configuration of the emergency lights and livery, a police car may be considered a marked or unmarked unit.

Best things to see in MALIBU… Malibu is a beach city in Los Angeles County, California, situated 30 miles west of Downtown Los Angeles. Known for its Mediterranean climate, a 21-mile strip of the Malibu coast incorporated in 1991 into the City of Malibu.

The area is known for being the home of Hollywood movie stars, people in the entertainment industry, and other affluent residents. As of the 2010 census, the city population was 12,645. Signs around the city proclaim “21 miles of scenic beauty”, referring to the historical 27-mile Malibu coast spanning from Tuna Canyon west to Point Mugu in Ventura County.

Most Malibu residents live within a few hundred yards of Pacific Coast Highway (State Route 1), which traverses the city, with some residents living up to a mile away from the beach up narrow canyons.

For many residents of the unincorporated canyon areas, Malibu has the closest commercial centers and are included in the Malibu zip codes. The city is also bounded by Topanga to the east, the Santa Monica Mountains (Agoura Hills, Calabasas, and Woodland Hills) to the north, the Pacific Ocean to the south, and Ventura County to the west.
