It's great motorcycle riding country. I think there are some fancy spas there where rich people from LA go to escape it all.

I bought a pair of Big Dog boxer shorts at a store in Ojai in the late 1990's. There was a music store that had some connection to Jackie Lomax, a George Harrison protégé who was one of the original Apple Records artists other than the Beatles.

Pronounced O Hi or OJ?

by Anonymousreply 1302/21/2017

O Hi r13.

Has evolved over the decades from a sleepy vineyard and ranching town to early Cali-hippie earthy-crunchy outpost, to tourist-trappy weekend retreat for screenwriter and other Hwood types who want the privacy Malibu stopped providing.

There are some very good spas there as well as couple of decent boarding schools iirc. Still has a metaphysical-Eastern vibe, the international Theosophical Society was based there, still owns many acres and runs a school.

Ojai was so named because when you arrive thethere they unenthusiastically say, "Oh, hi."

It's a New Agey place. Lots of New Age therapies and therapists.

Very beautiful.

Ojai's burning Ojai's burning

All across the town, all across the night Everybody's driving with full headlights Black or white, you turn it on, you face the new religion Everybody's sitting 'round watching television

Ojai's burning with boredom now Ojai's burning dial nine-one-one Ojai's burning with boredom now London's burning dial nine-one-one

Somewhere, someone's calling.

6 o'clock on a Thursday evening I saw the smoke rise orange in the sky I watched the fire climb over the hilltops.

Canyon's burning Canyon's burning down.

Hear the trees crying All the years dying Fire has turned the hills into ashes And as the sun ran down from the sky The canyon burned.

Canyon's burning Canyon's burning down.

Ashes, long lying Memories, slow dying Fire has gone and the rain has fallen The winter has passed and the springtime is near But under the wind someone is calling.

Canyon's burning Canyon's burning down.
