On Sally Kellerman in "Back To School."
Sally Kellerman is a vision in a belted shawl and a Fedora. Her natural wave-and-bangs frames her venerable paleness with the ornery valor of an Ethan Allen window treatment. Her humidifier voice animates Yeats and Joyce, and when she says the word “fun,” it’s like she’s discovered a new vice she wants in on. But what I love most about Sally’s performance is her...

In Which Liz Phair is Standing Six Foot One.
One of the things I’ve learned about writing a book is that it’s best not to quote any song lyrics in your manuscript, because the music industry (yes, that’s what it’s still called) is “spendy” and “litigious.” In other words, you have to pay for the rights to reprint lyrics to music that isn’t in the public domain.

Kim Zolciak - Tardy for the Party (Mix) →
A word about Trasbox Zolciak’s single, “Don’t be Tardy for the Party”: When this track comes on in the clubs, the P-Townies will dance to it. It will be a huge novelty favorite. It’s not Gitarzan. It’s My Neck, My Back. Do you know why? Because gay people are wonderful. They love to laugh! Soon enough, there will be a gay wedding that will feature the...
Please help me to understand: Zooey Deschanel
nudawn: Question Via I think its somehow related to the Pam Syndrome In response to the original question, my opinion is that Zooey is a bright-eyed Tabula rasa. She’s all projection screen under thick fringe, able to reflect with her pale limbs and heart-shaped moon face whatever it is a bewitched boy wants.

Last night, I ended up sprinting to the IFC Movie Theater on 6th Avenue to catch a 10 PM show, in what quickly became pouring rain. I got soaked, and ducked into the shelter of the neighboring sex shop right before the movie started, in hopes of being able to get some dry clothes. I browsed a T-shirt that said “My Nipples Get Harder Than Most Dicks” and a pair of Hustler...
The Latest Proof that Writing is The New Acting
NYT: Ms. Wilder-Taylor, a former stand-up comic, has made a career from championing cocktail play-date attitude. With books like “Sippy Cups Are Not for Chardonnay” and “Naptime Is the New Happy Hour” and her scabrously funny Web column, “Make Mine a Double: Tales of Twins and Tequila,” she has been the toast of the antiperfection mom-lit world. But in late May, six weeks before the...
