Interview: Director Brett Morgen on Creating 'Kurt Cobain: Montage of Heck'

In 2007, Courtney Love gave filmmaker Brett Morgen the keys to the kingdom — the kingdom of Kurt Cobain. Cobain’s clothes, toy collection, journals, artwork, videos, recordings, and other possessions were all being kept in a non-descript storage facility. Now Love, who’d been impressed by Morgen’s documentary about film producer Robert Evans, The Kid Stays in the Picture, wanted Morgen to use Cobain’s artifacts as the basis of documentary about him. ...more

The Problem With Calling the Black Widow a Slut

You might have seen that Chris Evans and Jeremy Renner during a press junket responded to a question about Black Widow's romantic interests in Avengers: Age of Ultron (not saying who, SPOILERS, but it was brought up to them because in prior films it seemed like her interests were aimed at Captain America and Hawkeye) and both men joked that she's a slut, a whore, and she has a fake leg (which painted people with prosthetics as being something unattractive)....more

Mocking or Emulating: Teens Go Crazy for Kylie Jenner's Lips

Our First Lady is always keeping it 100%. Recently she said that her daughters Sasha and Malia were not influential, despite what Time magazine says.   They are not influential,” the First Lady said, laughing. “They just live here [ The White House] . They have done nothing to gain any influence.” ...more
This is very reminiscent of the "cinnamon challenge" a few years ago, and while not as fatal, it ...more

Scorpio Full Moon 5/3/15 – Passionate, Sensitive, Intense!

The Taurus Sun is reflected in the opposite Scorpio Moon = a beautiful Full orb in the passionate, emotional 8th sign of the Zodiac. Ruled by transformational planet Pluto, (traditional ruler is warrior planet Mars) there are deep feelings, focus and determination influencing us during this lunar phase with energy to spare. A Full Moon is a good time to figure out what to keep and what to throw away (discard whatever is no longer meaningful, useful, and / or beneficial.) Gauge what has been accomplished since the New Moon and move on to finalize and complete tasks in the next few weeks....more

Inspirational Property

It was late summer 2013. I was at a popular brunch spot for a lively celebration of a friend’s 40th birthday. I had just had a baby 3 weeks prior and was feeling a little lost from myself between the sleepless nights, the constant feedings, and the ignited neediness of my other two children, both of them home all the time, waiting out that last hot month before school begins. And I don’t mean to add all that in as though it were a feeling only a new mother could have, as though we had the market cornered on displacement....more

Ballsy & Blatantly Bodacious...The "B"is back!

I took a long break after my kid's Spring Break, because, well, I just wasn't feeling it. Out here in Chicagoland, it's been chronically gloomy outside, and not quite warm enough or sunny enough to get my creative juices flowing, or, bubbling at all, for that matter.Yep, I was in a rut. There's nothing more frustrating than getting in a rut, when you're otherwise a pretty perky, creative person, but it happens to the best of us. That's right, the best of us. ...more

Bruce Jenner and How the Media Takes Away Teaching Moments

What do you do when topics come up on television, in the magazines in the checkout line, on the “suggested for you” on your livestream or in adult conversation that you don’t want your children exposed to yet?  How do you maneuver through this society of circus culture in our media?  Let me clarify, I don’t label it “circus culture” because of what is being shared; but because of the over-the-top, in your face, unbelievable delivery of all serious information.  Rather than be a vehicle to educate the media is a vehicle to entertain…  ...more
