I Graduated But…
I Graduated But...

The job search. This has been going on since the beginning of time. I wonder what cavemen put on their resumes? Job skills: Quick fire making and a unique ability to compete in a team environment in the execution and and acquisition of buffalo. Ability to take full advantage of social media to communicate effectively […]

Because it’s all about the clothes
Because it's all about the clothes

So the Oscars are coming up. Lots to say about that. I still have to see many of them so I’m waiting to hear what you have to say. Everyone says how wonderful Precious is. So that one is top of my list. I’m a little peeved though about the sheer number of nominees this […]

Peeing on Pancho
Peeing on Pancho

Charles Rangel is stepping down on ethics violations, Gov. Patterson they are asking to step down due to ethics violations. Eliot Spitzer had to step down due to his addiction to prostitutes. Is it impossible to stay in office if you are a New York Democrat? I’m sure it really doesn’t matter who holds office […]

Pointed Heels and Inflatable Beavers
Pointed Heels and Inflatable Beavers

Oh my, those closing ceremonies for the Olympics with the inflated mounties and beavers with the big inflated sharp pointed teeth. The disorganized looking snowboarders. Oh, my. So if you are an armchair critic like me you may find some enjoyment and nourishment from “Pointed Heels” (1929). Featuring Helen Kane (the inspiration for Betty Boop). […]

Lindsey’s Mont Blanc
Lindsey's Mont Blanc

After yesterday’s skiing crash with Lindsey Vonn due to difficult conditions I want to recommend Stürme über dem Mont Blanc(1930) by the notorious Leni Riefenstahl. Talk about a woman who thrived in difficult conditions and exploited them. Ssheeesh.

This is the Night to be yourself
This is the Night to be yourself

Is heartbreak inevitable? Where would we be without all this pain and self-loathing? I’m not sure if I would want to be self-loving and irresistibly lovable. What would life be like if I received the appropriate credit and praise for all of my hard work or apathy for that matter? What would it be like […]

Tiger Woods and the cross he bears
Tiger Woods and the cross he bears

Ah! Forgiveness. What does that really mean anyway. We let it go? We move on? Closure? Ratings? I hate golf so he never lost me as a fan. I must admit though, it does make good drama. What I would like is to get one of those CGI programs and super impose ex-boyfriends faces over […]

Polly of the Circus in Brooklyn
Polly of the Circus in Brooklyn

I saw this article today in The New York Times about an event/performance space in Brooklyn called “The House of Yes”. You should check it out, looks really interesting. With the advent of Cirque de Soleil their seems to be a growing population of circus type performers. A new burlesque & aerialist movement seems to […]

Snow White before Disney got a hold of her
Snow White before Disney got a hold of her

It is snowing like crazy where I am. I hope I can find my car tomorrow. Looks like the kids may get off tomorrow for a snow day. Maybe your kids will go out and play tomorrow, maybe they will sit on the couch and watch every Disney DVD you own. They might even pick […]

Downhill
Downhill

These Olympics are not going well. First the fatal Luge accident, the weather which has caused delays in the skiing competition and although the opening ceremony was a nice try and I did enjoy the whales, the opening ceremonies were very underwhelming. This is not Vancouver’s fault though, anyone who had to follow China was […]

Arbuckle and Polanski
Arbuckle and Polanski

I am always behind on my New Yorkers, I read parts of them put them down and then pick them up again, but I refuse to leave any of the articles behind as they are such resources of information. I used to be a up to date New Yorker reader, but now I am five […]

Whatever it is…I’m against it!
Whatever it is...I'm against it!

For those of you who are dreading the upcoming Super Bowl Sunday, here is a suggestion. The Marx Brothers get you into the football spirit without any of the relentless Time Outs watching your television screen get raped by some hopped up graphics department. Seriously enough with the swishing across the screen! Horse Feathers (1932) […]

The first time you buy a house
The first time you buy a house

Personal Quote from Lupe Valez- The first time you buy a house you think how pretty it is and sign the check. The second time you look to see if the basement has termites. It’s the same with men. Sex, death and real estate are a lot to think about. You have taxes coming up […]

Movie Racial Stereotyping In Age Of Obama

Wow. I saw this posting on my favorite site, Deadline Hollywood. By Nikki Finke | Category: Uncategorized | Thursday January 28, 2010 @ 1:04pm Comments (0) Email This | Print This | Bookmark and Share There’s an interesting article in the Boston Phoenix about Hollywood movie racial stereotyping in the Age Of Obama. Was this […]

Forbidden
Forbidden

So I was watching the Today show this morning and they had on Ted Haggard’s wife in one of the most painful interviews I’ve seen in a while. Gayle Haggard has a new book out and she is revealing that “My husband Ted Haggard is free from homosexual compulsions – for real this time”. Visit […]

Sweet Marijuana
Sweet Marijuana

A little song to comfort Los Angeles today after the loss of the Medical Marijuana Dispensaries. “Sweet Marijuana” from “Murder at the Vanities” (1934) Monica Almeida/The New York Times A medical marijuana dispensary on Melrose Boulevard, one of many throughout the Los Angeles area. By JENNIFER STEINHAUER Published: January 26, 2010 LOS ANGELES — The […]

Rain
Rain

I don’t know where you are, but where I am it is raining like crazy. Not just heavy rain, we’re talking “Rain” rain. Yesterday I wrote about an article on MTV where they were taking suggestions of films to remake since a “Footloose” remake apparently fell through. Many of you were not very happy with […]

Bolero and Torvel and Dean
Bolero and Torvel and Dean

The Olympics are coming up. I never really watch the winter games that much until they start getting into the ice skating. I love the ice skating. Remember Torvel and Dean? I thought you might enjoy a little Lombard doing Bolero. This reminds me just a little of “Dancing with the Stars”.

Earthquakes

Quake! A film about the Long Beach Earthquake on March 10th, 1933 So those of you who are annoyed by Twitter and Facebook here is a good example of why they are important. I’m not a Twitter Fan, I can barely remember to do the dishes and easily forget about my Twitter duties. But as […]

“I’ve got to get up and go to work” a little Tune to get you motivated for Tomorrow Morning.
"I've got to get up and go to work" a little Tune to get you motivated for Tomorrow Morning.

Banks Prepare for Bigger Bonuses, and Public’s Wrath is the headline on the New York Times website at the moment. This is what I have to look forward to tomorrow morning. I have to go to work and make some insanely low amount of money. I must motivate myself to give my time, brains and […]

The White Ribbon Alliance and “Life Begins”
The White Ribbon Alliance and "Life Begins"

So I saw this TERRIBLE film the other night that I DVRed (is that the correct spelling?) “Life Begins” (1932). I could not deal with the over sentimentality and the silly representation of a maternity ward. Not to mention, I cannot tell you how as a woman who is pondering having children (or shall I […]

Prosperity Blues and the Tinker Bell Economy

Prosperity Blues (1932) So this is what I get out of this when I watch it. If we just are optimistic about our future, lending and money will revive itself from it’s sleep and we will all be employed, happy, rich and full again. Um…I saw this today and thought you might find it interesting […]

Un bel di vedremo NY City Opera

For you opera lovers out there, you may have seen the recent article in the New York Times City Opera Cedes Dates to City Ballet in Lincoln Center Deal . So that means that you have many, many other options in New York for Opera, (The Met, Dicapo Opera, Gotham Chamber Opera,etc.) but you will […]
