Californication — The Word not the Series. Why’d I do it?

Californication is a blend of the words California and fornication, appearing in Time on May 6, 1966[1] and written about on August 21, 1972, additionally seen on bumper stickers in the U.S. states of Arizona, Nevada, Colorado, Oregon, Idaho,[2] and Washington.[3] It was a term popular in the 1970s and referring primarily to the “haphazard, mindless development [of land] that has already gobbled up most of Southern California”,[4] which some attributed to an influx of Californians to other states in the Western United States
