Last night, the 2008 MTV Video Music Awards rocked my world. Here are a couple of reasons why.
Creativity of Location
The Paramount Lot (Arlene's old office?) served as a dynamic stage to many performances, which made even boring performances look fun.
The Redeem Team
Yes it's nice that Britney won something, but three times including Video of the Year?… Continue
As I get older, I've started to notice that I've gained a great appreciation for things like art, wine, and classical music. Frankly, MTV seems to always disappoint me (what kind of Britney showing was that last night?!), I'd rather watch the newest show on Bravo (thanks sis for the heads up on Rachel Zoe's new show) or check out a festival or art… Continue
You all know that I'm skeptical of Starbucks. I've got to give it them, however, on a few fronts. They're always trying to change things up...introduce a new drink, test out some new food items (side note: that oatmeal ain't so perfect)...and I love getting my NY Times there every morning.
This coming Thursday Starbucks is going to be giving away a… Continue

One of my favorite places to be in the world is in an airplane. I revel in excitement as I embark on a new adventure and enjoy being comfortable on the way back home from a tiresome trip. This is why I really appreciate a good airline.
Virgin America makes flying fun again in a time when airlines always seem to be cutting costs and making us pay for it… Continue
I'm a huge fan of one Mr. Malcolm Gladwell. Somewhere in my house I have three copies of The Tipping Point and one hardcover copy of Blink. What I love most about this author is that he dives into the psychology of how trends start in a way that's on one hand obvious but on the other hand completely enlightening. In The Tipping Point he… Continue

Jay Alice and I super sad about losing in poker. haha
I was lucky enough to be invited to hang out with the superest coolest people on Saturday night, and we had a blast. I hadn't been to a shooting range in quite a while, so that was really fun. I had no idea what kind of arsenal Sam had! That rifle was intense! Next we went to this soul food place for dinner. THE FOOD WAS SOOOOOOO GOOD. After that we hung out and played poker.
Call me weird but I love beautiful font. Maybe it's because there is a beauty to how words can be presented...I just can't get enough of fonts! Veer has this one called Feel Script that has this… Continue
Every once in a while, I'll stumble upon a beautiful house that I fall in love with. Modern design, clean lines, something livable and inspiring. Clive Wilkinson is a man who knows my heart! His 3,300 square foot 3-bedroom house near Melrose was built so that people could move around, interact with one another, and go in and out of the house with… Continue
New Zealand company Minus5 brings a 1,200 square foot ice lounge to Vegas in October. Pay $30 and you'll be loaned sheepskin-lined parka, gloves and booties, so you can hang out on ice chairs and have a stiff… Continue
This is probably one of the most resouceful and unusual stories I've ever come across. In July of 2005, Kyle MacDonald started out in his quest to trade a giant red paper clip into a house. Sounds crazy? It absolutely is. But he was successful in doing it by trading for bigger and better items each time on Craigslist. How many trades did it take? Only 14 trades and he is now living in a three bedroom house in Canada. The scary thing is that it… Continue
I love art and I love food. There's no better way to enjoy both than to grow food that turns into art. Each year the residents of Inakadate, Japan work together to plant their crops so they'll grow in patterns visible only from above. They do this by planting different varieties of rice, and as the harvest matures, the leaves fill in their colors and the end results are larger than life paintings.…
I love everything about Lily Allen. I love her adorable face, I love her adorable music, and I love her adorable fucked-up-ness.
Here she is co-presenting some catfight, I mean, award with Sir Elton John at the GQ Man of the Year Awards in association with Elton's AIDS foundation. Meowwwwww. Why, oh why, can't we have awards ceremonies like this in the US. That there is one way to up your ratings, OSCARS!
Oh yes, and what a happy Friday it is. For today, I have laid my eyes upon, yes, the new photos of our lovely Jessica Alba in the September 2008 issue of Esquire mag, Czech edition - I know .. but what other bro-mag is gonna take a woman who just had a baby. A baby! From her .. anyways, she looks great, while pretending to be J.Lo circa 2004.…
