Freddie Mercury + Michael Jackson Duet.


You never knew you always wanted. There must be more to life than this. Thirty something years ago, Freddie Mercury and MJ hung out and made music together. The songs were never released, until now. Queen has cleaned up the tracks and is releasing them on their new album Queen Forever.  I love the song. Sadly, dissatisfaction with the state of the world is an evergreen theme ;( "There … [Read more...]

For Joan.


In January of 2013 I saw Joan Rivers perform live. I wrote this post about her the next day. The world is just a little bit less badass without her in it. I'm reposting, because I said it right the first time. Last night I went to see Joan Rivers stand up at a supper club on 42nd street. She performed for an hour to about 120 diners... She donates the proceeds from these events to charity. So I … [Read more...]

Maybe because actually having and running a family is so freakin tiring and frustrating that making it seem beautiful, idealizing and appreciating the romance of little having little children in your life does make it better. It's stopping to smell the roses while they are still blooming, because they are … [Read more...]

Visual Feast | The Grand Budapest Hotel.


All Wes Anderson films are visually astounding and the latest The Grand Budapest Hotel, does not disappoint. Who knew I could enjoy red, tangerine and citrine lacquers, purple tuxedos, pastel bath houses, pink pastry boxes and a fictional country in Alpine Europe set in the 30's so much? Of course I knew I would. A Wes Anderson movie is a trip into a world onto its own, a whimsical beautiful world … [Read more...]
