Jennifer Moss Makes Ojai Return

With new name, Earth Friend Gen clothed for downtown bike ride

By Nao Braverman
Jennifer Moss, aka "Earth Friend Gen," arrived in Ojai Sept. 25 for a visit back to her old stomping grounds.
"I am enjoying the sunshine," said Moss, who has traded in her G-string and pasties for a more conservative bikini, at least for today.
Moss left Ojai for Ashland, Ore., in early May, which she says is really beautiful with lots of nice people.
She drove to Ojai in a rented van and arrived today with her bicycle, and a heart-stamped globe, which she carts around on the back of it.
"What I would like to do is get a Dodge Sprinter and convert it to run on bio-diesel," she said.
She expects to be in Ojai for a few weeks, but she's not sure. After that Moss may go back to Ashland for a while, but her plans are up in the air.
"There are a lot of different opportunities in my life," she said. "Once I get my van I want to be a world traveler."
Getting a van and converting it to run on alternative fuels is part of her attempt to focus on tackling environmental issues.
"I want to work with organic farmers and eco-villages," she said. From now on she wants her name spelled G-e-n, which also stands for Global Environmental Network.
She was recently interviewed on NBC (will play after the commercial) and the media focus has motivated her to be a more concentrated spokesperson for love, life and peace, she said.
Moss says she wants to channel the media attention she has recently received toward various, lesser-known environmental and health issues, for which she is a proponent.
"I want to keep working on sharing earth-friendly tips and sharing the naked truth," she said. "For example, most people don't know that canola oil is not healthy … it really isn't good for your body."
She says she is learning to be more peaceful, and to work with people toward positive change.
"A lot of people in this society don't know what I am doing," she said. "They think I want to hurt children or sell myself sexually but it's not true. I was born this way, and I love our children."
What she strives for is to help children, and work with them on creating a sustainable eco-friendly world, she said.
She is staying in Ojai to help a friend fix up his house and organize it for a few weeks, perhaps. After that, she's off to wherever her world-traveling path will lead her.

"They think I want to hurt children sexually"

Jesus, who ever said that? Where the hell did that come from?

That came from her subconscious. Interesting choice to blurt out.

This woman is obviously is obviously a few french fries short of a Happy Meal. I am sure she is harmless. About the only thing I can imagine could happen was if she were to cause a traffic accident. Best thing we could all do would be to ignore her. As with Live Free or Die, just craving attention.

What is really strange is how this even became a news story. How did OVN even know that was coming. She is just visiting someone to help with their house. Does Earth Friend have an OVN friend?

Does she expect someone to give her a bio deisel van?

Anon. 9.25 8:32: Nao happened to see her cruising around downtown.
Usually people call us when she's spotted "sharing the naked truth."
A woman wearing minimal clothes riding her bike down the busiest avenue in the valley... Gee, how did this become a news story?

So, Live free or Die...is that YOUR real name. May as well be anonymous. Practice what you preach.

It was a news story the first time, and maybe the second, third, fourth and fifth times. If you want to think that it was also a news story the sixth through the fifteenth times, OK. Whatever. but is it really news anymore? No, it isn't. Really. It isn't.

A serious question here... does anyone have a clue how this woman supports herself. (no pun intended)
She has high aspirations but I have never heard her mention how she is funded. Trust fund baby?

Anonymous said...

Yeah.. this girl is all talk and no action.I don't see any real effort on her part to help anyone Seems she spends most of her time riding in my lane while I almost run over her. Most people with concern for others stay the hell out of the road.Ojai has a really nice bike trail. Cars weigh more than a bicycle and I personally almost hit her twice when she was breaking the law and entering my lane when there was only one lane to be had and i had the right of way. The next time i almost hit her was because she ran a red light and then screamed at everyone for not stopping for her then she proceeded to cross over ALL the lanes .This is how she expects to improve our world? Plain and simple she is a road hazard. Do the right thing and get a permit and have your plastic globe parade!Plastic pollutes!

i am surprised she has not been hit. she does her little loop one way down the road, whips a u turn in the middle of the street that would get one a ticket in a car, charges down the street thru town and does the same thing all over again. i agree, just craves attention. if you are on a bike you are expected to obey traffic laws as if you were in a car. why has the local law not ticketed this nut? it just dawned on me.. .maybe she HAS been hit already and that is why she nuts.

AND THIS IS NEWS BECAUSE?????????
Must have been a slow news day for the OVN.

Either way, WHO CARES,,,,GO BACK TO OREGON.

would you rather we had a murder to take the place of this (old) news?

Jennifer Moss is a smart cookie to not drive her Rental van buck naked. Can you imagine the sweat and germs on those seats from all the different people who've used it and the subsequent funk a woman could pick up? A yeast infection would be gross for naked skating down Ojai Ave.

Anonymous said...

I've had similar thoughts of what her bicycle seat must be harboring. Yuk.

Ummm, this article was only about her visiting ojai and her pretty mundane aspirations.

EFG is all blow and no go. has no intentions of promoting anything other than herself. i think she was dropped on her head in infancy.

All talk and no brains is more like it.

"What I would like to do is get a Dodge Sprinter and convert it to run on bio-diesel," she said.

Sweetheart, you don't need to 'convert' diesels to run on biodiesel.

If anyone in Ojai remembers the tan & white diesel I drove when I lived in the valley, well...after 470,000 miles it's still going strong and running on 100% home-brewed biodiesel with ZERO modifications for about 9 months out of the year. When the weather gets too cold back here, I have to mix it 50-50 to prevent gelling. Bio-diesel also runs flawlessly in our oil-burning furnace which heats our home and our hot water.

Hey, Live Free or Die......ALL of your babbling belongs in the Rambling Rants. I think you and EFG are twins separated at birth...and your mom ran away from home.

If it weren't for Gen's semi-nudity and attitude, she would never have gotten more than passing mention in the news.

Ever wonder about the size of the carbon footprint attached of all the attention given to (not much more than) Earth Friend Gen's breasts? How many kilowatt hours and how many other resources have gone into giving her far more notoriety than she ever could have gotten if she were just some ordinary looking guy?

Isn't it sad that there are probably hundreds of people in the Ojai Valley who are actually doing tangible things to make the world a better place to live in, but Gen, not them, gets the attention?

Yes, it is sad, but those folks are doing it not for the glory, but for the good. They'd probably rather stay ANONYMOUS!

Go back to Oregon! Riding around Ojai w/ your pasties and hemp thong makes me laugh. If you are so passionate about the world volunteer and make some change. I am sure riding back and forth on Ojai Ave. is doing a lot of good.

Please OVN don't waste your Soy ink on her pastie arsss. LOL

Stay in Ojai! You're great!

I am always so happy to see this girl, it always makes my day. When I see her riding or blading it makes me think good thoughts like piece and love. My friends and I always let each other know when there is a Jen sighting

I am always so happy to be naked! Its healthy and natural and you get the full good effects of the sun all over your body. Earth friend Gen for Queen!!! Then we will all be made to go naked and then love ourselves for who we are and not how big our Beamer is.

member said...

I am proud of my large beamer. It gets really big when Jen rides by

jen luvr said...

word of advise Jen,
loose the g-string, let it all hang out for us.We love you, is there anything the city of Ojai can do to keep you here. You are the best thing for Ojai since the orange.

Bud Bolinsky said...

Jen and Mayor Suza Franzina look almost identical as they bicycle along singing...

To the Ojai Valley News:
Please stop publishing articles on this girl. You should aspire to a higher level of quality.
To Jen, alias Gen:
Very clever to try to link your behavior to a cause to deflect criticism. Unfortunately, only the most naive would buy into this. You lost my sympathy when you became confrontational. Your freedoms stop at the point where others begin. Please try to admit to yourself that you have a pitiful need for attention and get some counseling or a job; stripper comes to mind as that would have much more honesty and integrity than what you've been doing in the past and I mean that with all sincerity.

To the Ojai Valley News:
Please continue publishing articles on this girl, and the bee bike lady, and all the other oddities that make Ojai a beautiful and ecclectic place to live (and report on).

To the above poster:
How sad you must be to anonymously accuse Gen with such vitriol. I'm praying that you'll open your heart. Gen is good, and positive, and harms no one. Leave her alone and let the rest of us enjoy the view.

I used to like Earth Friend Gen because she always cracked me up, not so much watching her but watching the reactions of people seeing an almost naked woman skating down the street. She never bothered me with her odditys before until I heard she skated naked in the church parking lot on Easter. Even though I am not a church person, I still thinks its wrong to do that to people. It was a mean act on a sacred holiday so Earth Friend Gen has now lost her luster and I really don't care about her anymore wheather or not she stays or goes.
