Crack is Wack

BY Laurie in General

This is just so sad, Tatum O'neal was busted again for drugs. When I was a kid, Paper Moon was my absolute favorite movie, I loved her cool, tom boy antics, and then bad News Bears come out- jeez, that was a masterpiece as far as I was concerned! Anyway, I guess all that  smoking and drinking on screen did lead to the addictions she can't seem to shake at 44 years old. I feel bad ... Read More

All you need is LOVE

BY Laurie in Music

One of my favorite lady artists is Becky Stark. The songs she makes with her band Lavender Diamond are not only beautiful, but the message is always positive and full of love. looks like the band has made a secret movie to accompany their Matador records  release Imagine our Love. If you are in LA, you are very lucky because they are having what promises to be a wonderful evening of performances on Tues. May 27th  called Psychedelic Healing Visions: A ... Read More

Thanks to Slut Machine over at Jezebel for posted the latest video by our favorite Long Island mom impersonator and writer John Roberts (directed by Clay Weiner).

Silver Lining Opticians

BY Laurie in Style

I am always on the hunt for vintage specs, and recently had to replace my beloved frames because I stupidly dropped them. So the hunt was on, and I searched the city for months for the perfect pair. I finally found a sweet pair of vintage YSLs that are very early 80’s Sophia Loren, and I found them at Siver Lining Opticians in Soho. The guys running this cute eyewear shop, Jordan Silver and Erik Sacher are friendly as can be, very knowledgeable and patient ... Read More

Mr. Lonely

BY Laurie in General

Harmony Korine’s new film “Mr. Lonely” opens this weekend, and it’s pretty good. Starring Diego Luna as a Michael Jackson impersonator, it’s probably the artiest art film I’ve seen in a while. The story follows Michael in Paris, where he meets a Marilyn Monroe impersonator played by the always amazing Samantha Morton. They go to Scotland to live on a commune with a bunch of other impersonators, and tragedy ensues. There is also a ... Read More
