WTF! Has the world gone so topsy turvy that gross is the new black? When I read Cathyn Horyn’s bit in The New York Times about how mundane the first few days of New York Fashion Week were, I had to see for myself since I am lolly gagging in Venice Beach for the winter rinsing off the many prior New York Fashion Weeks for a cleansing moment. Upon perusing some of the collections via Women’s Wear Daily, style.com or my inbox from a host of publicists, I was horrified at much of what I saw. Not everything, but enough… Read More »

Road Runner, WIle E. Coyote & Paul have so much in common.

All this talk about the Fiscal Cliff reminds me of Road Runner and Wile E. Coyote. … Read More »

The Mayans... indeed.

Happy New Year! I am still down in Tulum having Internet issues coupled with a hangover so all I can do is re-post this entry from two years ago about the Mayans and their nonsense about the end of the world. Just so happens that I am in spitting distance of the Mayan Ruins and am going to take this nonsensical conversation up with the Gods directly tomorrow, after I finish nursing this hangover. … Read More »

Who cares what Manohla Dargis says?

Manohla Dargis loved the movie Bad Teacher with Cameron Diaz. Need I say more? That has to be one of the worst movies of the year, yet, to Manohla, she compares Diaz to the bouncy, screw-ball comedy actresses of the Golden Age of Hollywood, which is not only sacrilege, but simply not true.… Read More »

Couple of weeks ago, with an itch to see a summer film, though the offering so far seems lackluster, we were this close to seeing Super 8 when a review in The New York Times by Manohla Dargis lead us to, of all places, Bad Teacher. According to Ms. Dargis, this film was one step away from a Carole Lombard screwball comedy directed by Howard Hawks. Clearly, someone drank the Kool-Aid or some kind of liquid substance before seeing this film, that not being me. Dumbstruck, we sat through the movie wondering what the attraction was for Manohla. Have I… Read More »

As a member of the internet elite, well, in my own mind anyway, I wanted to give a shout out to Thrillist, the men’s website that has quickly become a leader in how blogs evolve into a sophisticated, revenue generating, content driven, value added groovy thing. Adam Rich started the venture in 2005 and has been at the forefront of the ever changing internet. People like Adam and Arianna Huffington are inspirational and honorable for taking their passion for sitting at their computer so successful. Read today’s piece in The New York Times Business and in my case weep. Kidding,… Read More »

Ever since Anna Wintour had the good sense to separate her Vogue brand from style.com, which used-to-be the leading fashion blog, it has since suffered the slippery slope currently affecting many fashion blogs as of late. Is it me or does it seem that so many fashion blogs have become regurgitated, un-opinionated non-news? As we wind down 2010, style.com felt compelled to do a piece on The Year In Love, all about Courtney Love–known whackadoo. But not only is Courtney–who yes, has cool moments–a total loon, but in the bigger picture, she is so friggen crazy, that even her own… Read More »

Carrie Fisher & Wishful Drinking…The Party Continues

httpv://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MWcHMMzPa8M Although the Tony Awards snubbed Carrie Fisher for her wonderful performance in Wishful Drinking, HBO just announced that it will film the one-woman show as a special later this month. On June 26 at 8PM, there will be a one night only staging of Wishful Drinking, right outside New York City. But who cares where it is? I am putting together the Wishful Drinking Party Bus and together, we can travel the short distance to see this side splitting, two-hour laugh-fest. The show received a rave review by Ben Brantley of The New York Times. And (B) it falls… Read More »
