I'm not completely sure what she is even talking about but Tyra has a ton to say. At the kick off of the clip, she demonstrates seven basic smiles that she has mastered. She thankfully spared us the other hundreds that she has in her arsenal. As she says in the clip, what she is bringin' is just the "beginner's course". According to Tyra there are 275 smiles that she knows. Mmmmm k? She goes on to compare herself to Martha Stewart which seems just...well...silly. I'm not one to knock a girl who is trying but ummmm I need to see a lot more than America's Next Top Model and her boring talk show to get on my feet and cheer. I want to love her but so far all I'm getting is a lot of talk and not a whole lot of action. Bring it - on the runway or off. Check out the New York Times featurette below to see what I'm blabbing all about. You can also read theFULL NEW YORK TIMES ARTICLE HERE. xx.
Dan - I would LOVE to get your take on Ms. Thang. xox.
In a very cool turn of events, The New York Times is reporting that New York Governor David A. Paterson announced that he has directed all New York agencies to begin amending their policies and current regulations to recognize same-sex marriages performed in other places including Massachusetts, California and Canada. This is huge news for New York! I hope the trend will catch on elsewhere in the country. This brings New York that much closer (hopefully!) to allowing gay marriages to be performed in this state in the future. The governor’s legal counsel, David Nocenti, stated that gay couples married elsewhere “should be afforded the same recognition as any other legally performed union.” Ummmm HELLO..DUH! Check out the video below featuring the Gov making the annoucement. :-)
These two mixes were released last year and, sadly, I never even heard them. I didn't realize what I had been missing. These are some lucious house beats. They are so yummy that I had to share. Plug in your head phones or turn up your speakers and get in to it. xo.
With the impending release of the Sex and the City movie this Friday (!!!), the cast is making the rounds doing press every chance they can get. SJP was recently on Letterman to promote the film. I think SJP is the most eccentric of the bunch. One would think that the role Sarah plays on SATC is very much like Carrie but I don't think so at all. The biggest comparison would be the two's attraction to fashion but that is about it. I think the word quirky comes to mind. David and SJP always have a very playful repartee when she is on his show. See her latest appearance below in two parts. I love SJP. xo.
Some day soon I hope to not have to use this image below that I created. I posted it last year and optimistically thought that the following year it wouldn't be necessary. Sad. Even though I venomously oppose the war, I support the troops that are in harms way right now and wish for their safe return. Enough is Enough. xox.
one time i thought i made something of it. but then some years past and i knew i was just cornering a building, with very few lights left on. maybe in park slope. or carry town. the differences between places can sometimes be: only smells. when your face is pressed against brick, and your toes are cold, because flip flops are not appropriate foot ware for an early spring. no body taught me that. i just learned it, along with other things that common sense defies or inadequately defines. i act like i don't care. and sometimes i actually don't... but mostly i do and too much. this is how the witch hunt starts. like climbing up a ladder, or leaning over a tar paper roof, it's the heights of things that get to me and ground me like: a relief a map a drop of syrup after it's done being sap. i would start to count on you, if i was better at math.
In honor of Jason's accomplishment of making it all the way to #3 on the Billboard album chart this week with the release of his new album We Sing, We Dance, We Steal Things, I wanted to do a special 'Tube'alicious post with a trio of Mraz video gems. They are as lovely as they always are. xox.
Jason performs a showcase event for We Sing, We Dance, We Steal Things at London's Royal Opera House.
Jason sings I'm Yours to the crowd in Borlange, Sweden or rather they sang it to him!! Check it out.
Jason singing You and I Both in Seoul this past March. I love the fan reaction. The language may not be native to these folks but the love is.
If you are a reader of this site you know that I have featured the smashing photos of Joe Holmesnumerous times. I think they are so freaking fantastic. Joe always has his camera pointed directly at NYC and its surrounding boroughs and that is ok by me. In my opinion, New York is one of the most fascinating places to capture on film. It has such depth and grit and beauty. Joe is a master at capturing New York just the way it is. On a recent visit to Joe's site (VISIT IT NOW!) I found a few shots that I wanted to share. They can be found below. Enjoy and again, thanks Joe. xo.
Madonna, while attending the Cannes Film Festival promoting her film I Am Because We Are, sat down with ABC's Cynthia McFadden to discuss her hubby, her Hard Candy album and her film. It was quite a cute interview. You even get the dirt on how Pharrell made Madge cry. Check it out! xo.
The amazingly talented George Michael performed on the American Idol Season Finale last night and he was incredible. (Click to see who won American Idol.) George performed his hit Praying for Time. It was la la la lovely. Enjoy.
The always ferocious and fabulous RuPaul is coming out with a hot new show on the gay entertainment and news channel LOGO. The show features the nation’s fiercest Drag Queen! Hello! How fun is that?!? The show is called RuPaul’s Drag Race. Check out a teaser for the show below. Work it out!
Via Andy's blog, Towleroad.com comes an beautiful piece of video. Street artist BLU created an animated graffiti creation that is an amazing thing to see. It's a feast for the eyes. Art is at its best when it breaks the rules and never looks back. Enjoy.
