In most matters, I'm not an ethnocentrist. I'm all for the melting pot that is the United States. The broad array of cultures that have been brought to our shores have contributed immeasurably to the success of America. The notion of requiring people to speak English only is laughably absurd to me, and decrying culturally-specific holidays, including foreign days of independence (e.g. Cinco de Mayo), as a loss of the American identity is just plain stupid. But there is one point of purely white-bread American custom on which I must insist. There is one decidedly red, white and blue... (more)
An afternoon sizzling in temperature presented a haven of welcome relief at the Artists' Debut at the Cheryl Hines Studio in Los Angeles on September 19th. Original works exhibit in a splendid fashion. Ms. Hines had remarkable pieces available for admiring and for sale to take home for display in your home or office.

... heat lamp in front of me—thereby blocking the exit route for the chairs to my left. Ugh…I began to ponder SF’s Burning Man culture. A culture described in a recent Guardian article (recommended read) as a “year round culture with its own unique social mores, language, fashion, calendar, ethos, and infrastructure”. Its proponents, one of which echoed this sentiment to me at the party, say that you can live Burning Man all year long. But while the fur boots and bee scooters made it back, something got left. At least at this party. Maybe it’s just too... (more)
...was expressed and Conga Mike on Congas was brilliant along with Sonship Theus on Drums, Allaah-dain on Saxophone and Neil on Piano expressing the very core of the song. Latif continued holding down the fort on Bass in his steadfast and inventive style.
The musicians made music in a fashion not done before and as will never be done again. This is an essential element of the heart and spirit of Jazz.
There was a poignant tribute by Andrew Jerald to his Mother. The tune was called “Miriam”. It was filled with images that portrayed space and time in the music, touching... (more)
I realize the risk I’m running by writing this. It’s one thing to wax poetic on the fashion tragedies of other men that I see running around and still try to maintain some air of masculinity – but it’s another to speak out women’s fashion. But after spending years as a male cheerleader and even longer as a dancer, I’ve given up on expecting my sexual preference to be obvious from the things I do. It wasn’t that long ago that I finally realized why women spend so much time, money and effort on shoes. I remember the maddening mystery of it as an... (more)

...hair and eyeliner are apparently not enough. Because while sitting in an Irish Pub (yes an actual Irish pub - the only place you'd be less likely to spot the common L.A. douche than a Men's Wearhouse) on the north side of town this weekend, I was confronted by a brave new step forward in fashion dumbassery - the coordinated kung fu headband. At first, I thought it was some sort of joke - as though some group of kids were having a theme party and the pub was simply a stop on their bar crawl. Sure they wouldn't fit in, but that was sort of the point of such an adventure anyway, right? I ... (more)
...myself rethinking this entire arrangement and wondering how much of it was really worth the privilege of being able to say “I live in New York”. But there were also many moments when I realized how phenomenal the city was for it’s art, history, music, cultures, entertainment, fashion, food. And it was true, this city is not for everyone, especially the lazy, faint of heart.
The railroad style apartment that I shared with my room mate was modernly updated, clean, cutely furnished in 21st century IKEA with the residue of 75 years of former residents. And the kitchen... (more)
When I set out to write a weekly blog for a whole year, I truthfully didn't expect an appreciable percentage of my pieces (if any) to be about fashion. I had no fashion sense to speak of until I was thirty years old, and even then it took me a few more years to really get comfortable in what I was wearing. As a point of reference, a law school colleague (who was a year behind me) once told me that when he saw what I was wearing in class during his visit to the campus (I was 29 at the time), he thought to himself "if that guy can do it, I know that I can." True story.I'm not certain... (more)
