Posting yesterday was a big hairy deal! Being new to Blogher, I didn’t know that it would eat my whole post…twice…I’m glad I had originally written it in Word. Seems you can’t click “edit post” from preview. I’ll remember that....more
Perhaps the hardest part of parenting is figuring out how to ensure your children don’t grow up to be a-holes. Finding a hiding place to scarf down a bag of Cheetos before they sniff you out and ask you to share is a close second, but I digress. In our house, we follow the very simple yet effective motto of “don’t be a jackleg,” born from my father’s term for various plagues on society....more
While most internet wags are spoofing or critiquing the upcoming April cover of Voguemagazine, featuring Kanye West and Kim Kardashian, another photo, released from the shoot, taken by Annie Leibovitz, has caught my eye....more
I'm not the person to ask about the history of Vogue, or its editorial mission. What I do know I mostly got from watching the "Devil Wears Prada." I do read it from time to time, although reading it isn't really a fair description either; it's more like I turn the glossy pages oooing at clothes I'll never get to wear because they are astronomically expensive and appropriate for absolutely no event in my life....more
I hate to sound like a broken record - but - everybody isn't qualified to run a charity. It is not necessary to start your own corporation to accomplish something or to steer funding to a specific need. At least once a day I receive a call from someone who wants to start a charity to fulfill some personal need or to accomplish a specific project. Others feel they need to do so to appear philanthropic or to use celebrity power to create awareness and large sums for a righteous cause....more
When rapper Lil Wayne was released from prison last year after being incarcerated for eight months on a gun possession charge , Hip-Hop media outlets and his fans welcomed him home with open arms.
How is it that Kanye West, an intelligent artist very much in control of his image, didn't think about the repercussions of representing women in such a horrific manner in his video for "Monster?" What I find more disturbing is that he DID think about it, and proceeded with this video anyway....more
Kanye West and I should be best friends. And if you ask me, we basically are. (When I say basically I mean that 808’s and Heartbreak once sat in my car cd player for 8 months straight.) While he gets a gets a bad rap for being…just plain ridiculous, I think he knows what he’s doing and is pretty misunderstood. — This is where we differ, as I never have any idea what I’m doing, so no wonder I’m misunderstood. Any”I’maLetYouFinishBut”, I hated his latest song when I saw him perform it on the VMAs. I had high expectations and stayed up way past my 9:30pm bedtime just to see it. It started off great…I don’t hate the red outfit (i do, however, hate the deep v-neck shirt. i don’t care if you’re Christian Dior himself. not a good look for any man.)…and then…the chorus. I shook my head and said “really?” about 40 times out loud. Then, I listened to it about 100 times more and realized that Kanye and I may or may not be bffs and/or long lost fraternal (naturally) twins.
