Clark Rockefeller: International Man Of Mystery

By Crowbar, published on Aug 12, 2008

...social security number to buy stocks.

“My client has no recollection of using Berkowitz’s identification.”

“I have no recollection of my past.”

Time passes and Crowe shows up in New York. Hired by Nikko Securities International Manhattan office as vice president of the corporate bond department, Crowe spun tales of being the former head of the faux Battenbeg-Crowe-von-Wettin Family Foundation, owning European castles, and driving Italian sports cars while he drove around in the 1965 Chevy pickup owned by John Sohus.

July Featured Contributor - Dlferguson

By Digidave, published on Aug 7, 2008

...best review I’ve written to date is a toss-up: either the one for DEATH PROOF or PLANET TERROR. And not just for the reviews of the actual movies. I take time to try and describe what the whole grindhouse movie experience was. I spent a lot of time watching a whole lot of movies in Manhattan’s 42end Street grindhouses back during the 70’s and 80’s. Lotta fun revisiting those days through a movie review.Best Movie I've seen recently was Dark Knight and I really liked your review (waited until after I saw the movie to read it). For that film in particular, what... (more)

Santa Monica Pier-latin Jazz, Mambo And Salsa!

By Ricky Ricardo, published on Jul 13, 2008

...the classic sounds of New York salsa to a new generation of music lovers worldwide. The sounds of the Spanish Harlem Orchestra brought back fond memories to the older generations with New York old school “Salsa Dura” (heavy salsa) while paying homage to the legacy of the legendary Manhattan’s Palladium Ballroom that featured bands of the BIG-3- Tito Puente, Tito Rodriguez and Machito back in the day. The Spanish Harlem Orchestra allowed me to imagine the energy felt in the grand ballroom of the Palladium.

The Shadow

By DLFerguson, published on Jun 25, 2008

...time playing cab driver/chauffeur Moe Shrevnitz. He comes off better than Jonathan Winters since his Police Commissioner Barth appears to spend all his time eating steak in the Cobalt Club instead of doing his job. No wonder Mongol warriors in full armor and carrying swords can run around Manhattan kidnapping scientists and hacking innocent bystanders into baloney slices. Ian McKellan displays none of the bombastic energy he displayed in the “X-Men” or “Lord Of The Rings” trilogies. But then he isn’t asked to do much as he spends most of the movie being... (more)

Counter-culture Icon George Carlin Dies

By D. E. Carson, published on Jun 23, 2008

...barely noticed them as they were leaving. The latter only proves that Carlin was more mature than these femi-nazis by not giving them what they wanted and that was public attention.

George Carlin was born May 12, 1937. He grew up in the Morningside Heights section of Manhattan, one of two sons of a single mother. He dropped out of school during the ninth grade. In 1957, he joined the Air Force and did not fare well. Carlin has posted on his website the discharge notice he received from his commander at Barksdale Air Force Base, Louisiana. The charges were... (more)

Burgos Case Mirrors Mcmartin Trial UPDATE

By john robertson, published on Jun 7, 2008

...MVPD seem to have personally invested themselves in getting the final outcome they desire, and despite any casualties that may occur; including the ramifications of such a precedent upon society at large, nothing so far has stopped them.

After creating a nightmare in the community of Manhattan Beach, the McMartin case lead to three self inflicted deaths and left a trail of crumbled lives, before the accused was finally acquitted. I predict that if Lori Frugoli and the MVPD continue to thumb their noses at history, it will repeat itself. Although justice will ultimately grace itself ... (more)

Free Ice Cream Cones For All!

By Venditto, published on Apr 28, 2008

...used by crack dealers. They get you addicted by giving you that first hit for free, then before you know it you're life's become a John Singleton movie. On the positive side: it's free ice cream and that's always a good thing.

Last year I visited every Ben & Jerry's in Manhattan so I could report on it here for my fellow Broohooians. You can check that article out here. You can also click here to find the closest participating shop and plan an attack on as many locations as possible (this is a strategy I highly reccommend).

It's not just about the free... (more)

Liberal Lies Are S. O. P.

By D. E. Carson, published on Apr 12, 2008

This one is for my friends in New York. If you happen to listen to former Air(head) America liberal talk-show host, Randi Rhodes, you may have heard back in October that she was mugged near her Manhattan apartment in an attack which cost her several teeth and was planned by the right-wing conservative movement as a response to her program.

And the Federal Reserve is planning to release a $26 bill with John F. Kennedy’s picture on it.

According to the New York Daily News, reports of Ms. Rhodes being mugged were as phony as a $26 bill. In fact the rumor of her attack being a mugging... (more)

A Night Around The World At Carnegie Hall

By TheTruth, published on Apr 3, 2008

...at the end of each song, as applause roared through the theatre for an extended period of time. However, I could tell a few patrons were contemplating whether or not to give a standing ovation at the end. It was a difficult decision on the timing, as the performers came back on stage for three encore performances. Although only about half stood up for the duo, the praise was well-deserved as the performance was flawless. In the end, this concert was really worth running through Manhattan in the rain in high-heels and a cocktail dress, which I am not able to say for too many other events.

A Tip From Hilary Duff

By 'Mean' Mike Duffau, published on Feb 14, 2008

...he says. He's just stupid if you ask me. He made his fortune playing professional football and won a super bowl ring when he played for Tampa Bay. (My home town)

One of the best advice from a celebrity that I ever received was from SNL's Rob Schneider. He came to this restaurant in Manhattan Beach and I just walked up to him and I asked him for his autograph and talked with him for a moment. I asked him "what do I have to do to get where you're at?" he tells me "Write a screenplay". I've been doing that ever since. Another story for another time.

In the boxing scene I've... (more)
