Life For Sell

By Risa Peris, published on Jul 3, 2008

...you to the top of the tower.

It is hard to believe that all of this was generated because of a girl. Well, maybe not a girl. More like a grown woman going through her own crisis. You see, Mr. Usher’s wife left him for another man. That act triggered Mr. Usher, in melodramatic fashion, to question his existence. Far from angst, Mr. Usher was spurred into existential action. And, of course, in keeping with modern times wherein we actually think our belongings define us, Mr. Usher decided to auction his belongings.

Ian Usher was not the first to get the idea to... (more)

The Clinton Business

By Glenn T, published on Jun 23, 2008

...that they stand on their own merits? As for political dynasty and modern-day American royalty, both are concepts whose charm exists solely because of the rosy glass through which we view our mid-twentieth century history. In truth, they’ve no place in this nation.

As for Chelsea, I do hope she comes to a campus near me. I’ll be there, front row, with my hand raised high and my question at the ready. Because, as a member of the young and famous, fashion questions are sure to pop up, and I’ll be dying to know if her handbag is a Lewinsky original.

Latest Indiana Jones Is Worth The Time

By D. E. Carson, published on May 26, 2008

...desert. They fake their way into the base and pull Indy out of the trunk of a 1954 Ford. Remember this is 19 years after The Last Crusade and so the Nazis are no more, so we need a new arch-enemy for Indy to have to fight. Of course Indy does escape from the Russians in true Indiana Jones fashion, loses his job at the university and decides to pack it in and move to London. Along comes “Mutt” played by Shia LeBouf, a James Dean-wanna-be (complete with duck-tail hair, leather jacket, motorcycle cap and Harley-Davidson). He looks more like Brando in On the Waterfront than James Dean, ... (more)

Music 2.0: The Age Of The Global Band

By nhemerson, published on May 24, 2008

...worshipping so called “Rock Stars.” Most of these consumers will buy, share and steal millions of dollars worth of music yearly. Yet, they themselves will never dabble in the artistic process in any way. They are simply content with their emulation of their musical icons through fashion and social status. They vicariously live the rock star life, void of purpose and meaning. These consumers, however, do not simply buy music to buy it. Their consumption does have purpose. The product affects them on multiple levels, in multiple ways. This is a very complex mystery to... (more)

When Comments Freak The Frak Out

By Sherlynn Hicks, published on May 4, 2008

...in the specific interest. Gawker, its flagship site, focuses on media and pop culture, Deadspin is sports oriented, Gizmodo is about gadgets, Kotaku is for gamers, iO9 is for sci fi enthusiasts, and Fleshbot is, well, get the idea? Jezebel centers on women with the credo of "Celebrity, Sex, Fashion, Without Airbrushing."

It started at 12:07 p.m. EST with the posting by Gawker's intrepid weekend editor of congratulations to Jezebel. Today Jezebel and its editors and contributors were highlighted in a rather tepid story in the New York Times Fashion & Stylesection centering... (more)

Shh...just Relax And Listen...rewound And Remixed

By Kim, published on Apr 29, 2008

...Arnay was remedy stress or tiredness. A serene balm for any heartache, heartbreak, aliment or wailing. Their interpretation of each piece performed was lovingly constructed with quintessence. As their eyes connected on varied tunes one sensed a soul bond as well expressed in an unforgettable fashion.

The pair collectively and individually expressed beauty that was euphoric on their respective instruments from their hearts.

Yale Student Repeatedly Miscarries For Art Project

By Chris Jones, published on Apr 17, 2008

...I hope to god this turns out to be a hoax, because if true this young woman is an absolutely despicable human being who should be shunned by every decent person on this planet.

The fact anyone could treat pregnancy and termination of a pregnancy in such a loathsome and trivial fashion is not fit to be a part of the civilized world.

The goal in creating the art exhibition, Shvarts said, was to spark conversation and debate on the relationship between art and the human body. But her project has already provoked more than just debate, inciting, for instance,... (more)

When Government Officials Fuel Hate Crimes

By Lumiere, published on Apr 11, 2008

...to marry and have babies. Do you know why? The LGBT community loves our 'heterosexual family and friends' because without you, the gay community would not be here. Instead of wasting our time hating, we express ourselves creatively; we decorate houses, do fabulous make up and hair, create fashion must-haves and infiltrate the entertainment, medical, legal and business communities with our humorous and witty ideas. Demonstrating through loving example and non-violent behavior that we can 'rise above' political and religious discrimination with a smile. Even while the conservative right... (more)

Resurrecting The Champ

By 'Mean' Mike Duffau, published on Apr 3, 2008

...win me over.

There is something rich about Adolph and that richness is the hard look of life written on his face. His story reminds me of the film RESURRECTING THE CHAMP. He is on skid row but I don't look at him as a transient and I don't care if his clothes are not of the latest fashion. I look at the history that is in front of me. I look at this gem that is rough around the edges and raw like the streets that he roams in South Central. I've seen him get in the ring and move around with some pug, and don't under-estimate this man because he is old. He has quick reflexes and... (more)

The Broo Elite Eight - Getting To A Final Four

By Glenn T, published on Mar 31, 2008

...back and bask in the fan worship that this little series appears to have inspired. Really, I haven’t cried this much over a marriage that I wasn’t involved in since Kid Rock got a hold (albeit, briefly) of Pam Anderson. V completely demolished my preconceived notions about the fashion business – and is proof positive (now alongside Broo newcomer Ava Marie) that there is not only intelligent life in the industry, but also beautiful, articulate, and well-written life. But Big Bill Friday certainly hasn’t taken this match up lightly, he knows full well... (more)
