I wrote the script to ‘Lady Bird,’ and it really came out of a desire to make a project about home – like, what the meaning of home is, and place.

George Takei
Moving to San Francisco affected me in a pretty profound way, in a lot of respects. I think it helped me evolve my sound and think outside of the space I’d been in in Sacramento. The scene there is so insular and kind of feeds on itself: you just end up playing the same shows with the same people for the same people.
I appreciate everything that happened in Sacramento. It was character building for me, continuing to go out and play hard. I feel like I progressed as a player.

When I was 21 years old, I had a job playing Santa Claus in a shopping centre in Sacramento. I was rail thin, so it’s not like I was a traditional Santa Claus even then. I had a square stomach; that was the shape of the sofa cushion that I had stuffed into my pants.
Tom Hanks
What’s neat about Sacramento is that you can drive – which I’ve done with the team a bunch of times – is drive, like, an hour or an hour and a half, and you’re in Lake Tahoe, and you can go out to the lake or go up in the mountains or go off-road driving or hiking.

When I was growing up, we were in a high income bracket, one of the highest. I was one of the first in high school to get a car. And I didn’t have to wait for it to be a graduation present, either. We’ve probably got one of the nicest houses in Sacramento.
Barbi Benton

Every time we go to Sacramento, I go see De’Aaron Fox. Every time he comes to Miami, he comes to the crib. We just kinda kick it and really think about it. ‘We are in the NBA right now. This is real.’ And we cherish those moments because you never know when your time is up on this earth.
Bam Adebayo
