June 2008 Malibu Arts Journal Magazine | Pablo Neruda Issue

Pablo Neruda: Hands Of Day. Malibu Arts Journal interviewed Neruda translator William O'Daly on his translation of Hands Of Day. We took a deep look at Ray Harris' iconic Hollywood paintings.


We are a journal of culture, of what's worth knowing and seeing, of individualism, beauty, elegance and the steady power of art as earned influence. Our editorial artists have earned reputations as cultural barometers on California’s unique arts scene and have made us the Southern California influential arts journal. From the start, three pivotal strengths have set Malibu Arts Journal apart: an investment in visual genius, a commitment to high quality storytelling and a discerning editorial eye. Malibu readers are from a world-famous city that includes celebrities, high-profile personalities and influential people with a net worth triple the national average. Our readers are mostly single, professionally employed, highly educated and own homes with an average value of $1.9 million. Our hip audience purchases elegant clothing, luxury vehicles, envious slices of real estate, frequents fine restaurants and travels the world to trendy hotels. This audience tends to be environmentally minded, politcally active and an artist community. Our Topanga audience too has a long history of the rich and famous. Humphrey Bogart used to live here back in the days of classic cinema. In the mid-1900’s, several Hollywood celebrities made Lower Topanga Canyon their home, some of these included Peter Lorre, Carol Lombard, Shirley Temple, Ida Lupino. and Will Geer. Topanga Canyon is another hip community still known for its celebrity nature today. Our readers in this township are affluent, mostly single, professionally employed and highly educated. They purchase stylish clothing, luxury vehicles, envious slices of real estate, frequents fine retaurants and travel the world to trendy hotels. Topanga is nestled inside a beautiful canyon in the Santa Monica Mountains. This audience tends to be enviromentally minded, progressive and politcally active and an artist community.

Publisher & Editor
Kriss Perras owns Ruptured Media where she publishes Malibu Arts Journal. Ruptured Media is also a story development company. Kriss has been tenacious and fought authority from the very start of her career in journalism. Kriss' first story as a journalist was for her college newspaper covering George W. Bush and Steve Forbes in the Iowa Caucuses during the 2000 election. She showed up at the hotel where Bush was to speak with her editor's letter of assignment in hand. She credentialed at the press desk like every other press person. She had questions in hand she had prepared to ask the Presidential candidate. She walked into the speaking room to find the press was roped off from the candidate. Being new to election coverage, and journalism, she was disappointed. She stood next to a seasoned AP photographer on the press platform. She asked the AP photographer if she could get out from behind the ropes and ask Bush her questions. The AP photographer said, "Well, you can try." So she did. She stepped out from behind the ropes and waited in line behind the people seeking the candidate's autograph. When it was her turn, she introduced herself to Bush as a college journalist and started to ask her questions. Bush said, " Wait, are you a journalist?" She said, "Yes." Bush nodded to his Secret Service team. They promptly came over on each side of her. She was 5'6" tall and weighed 127 pounds. The Secret Service men were well over a foot taller than her and obviously guys who worked out often. They could pick her up with their pinky fingers. They quickly picked her up by her arms, carried her over the ropes and plopped her back down on the press platform as she was still asking Bush her questions. Bush to his credit said, "Please give her one of my books. The answers to her questions are in my book." So she had to read his entire book, but she indeed found the answers to her questions. She also drew political cartoons for her college newspaper and still does today. Her next big break came in 2002, still as a student, with an interview with former US National Security Advisor Zbigniew Brezinski. Kriss went on in 2006 to found PCH Press, Malibu's daily newspaper. With PCH Press, she had extensive coverage of the battle against LNG and the fight against the placement of an LNG port being placed off the coast of Malibu and Oxnard, among other local news. She has covered Olara Otunnu, former United Nations Undersecretary General and Special Representative for Children in Armed Conflict when he spoke in Los Angeles in 2006. She covered Democracy Now! journalist Amy Goodman when she spoke in Los Angeles in 2006. She has interviewed Progressive David Swanson and numerous Malibu Mayors. In 2007, She founded Malibu Arts Journal magazine. Kriss built Malibu Arts Journal from the ground up. She has taken the magazine from an unknown dot com to a respected title. She earned the magazine digital distribution through Magzter and the iTunes App Store where it now enjoys broad based readership across the globe. She is a member of the national honor society Who's Who In American Universities And Colleges. Her photogrpahy has aired on CMTV channel 14 Spokane, Washington. *Photo Copyright 2017: Alan Weissman
