Malibu, are you ready to Zap Those Cows?

Burton – a 14-year-old Malibu High School sophomore – spent approximately four months writing Zap Those Cows, with the hope that the game could help support two charities: the United Kingdom-wide Anaphylaxis Campaign and the worldwide Child’s Play.

The Firestone Fieldhouse at Pepperdine University is nothing to write home about. Much of the seating consists of wooden benches that look like church pews and the space feels cramped overall. The arena feels more like a glorified high school gym than the site for Division 1 college sports events in an affluent town like Malibu.

In the same room on Galahad Drive where 16-year-old Barbie Herron and Amber Laforet began their friendship, 22 years later, the pair returned to fill the space with a new set of memories, this time as business partners and co-founders of Head Regal.
“That room where I lived with Barbie for a summer when we were 16 became our first office,” Laforet said. “Basically, our business was born in one night over sushi. We came back into each other’s lives after all these years and we just absolutely connected — it was magnetic.”

Longtime Malibu artist and surfer Warren Long has died. He was 62. 

Long, best known for his whimsical paintings and furniture that featured fish, mermaids, angels and flying pigs, was also a teacher. He worked at the Malibu Garden School in the 1990s and his Big Rock beach studio — full of paintings and sketches of the found objects collected along the shore that he used as sculptural elements in his work — was always open to students and visitors.

Honoring Malibu native Johnny Strange is very important to his dad, Brian — so much so that he has put a $1 million matching donation behind City plans to build a skatepark in Malibu in commemoration of his late son. 

Brian said a skatepark was an obvious fit, as his son — who died Oct. 1, 2015, during a BASE jumping excursion in the Swiss Alps at the young age of 23 — was an avid skateboarder who traveled the world to share the sport.
