An Oscar Season Public Service Announcement


Prince and grandchild date, ballerina Misty Copeland attended Elton John's Oscar party yesterday.
Perhaps the poor girl has never heard of Kim Basinger.

PS. I believe Prince is wearing a design from Liza Minnelli's upcoming QVC collection.

Lady Gaga - Born This Way


La Gaga continues to deliver (no pun intended).

Some Random Notes On Oscar Fashion

Oh Melissa, this doesn't even look like the type of doily grandma used to make. It's the plastic kind bakeries put under cakes and pastries. How many boxes of cannolis did your stylist have to order to put this beauty together?? Ay Maron!

Who brings their chickens to the Oscars?
WTF is she wearing wedgies??

Well, it's official: Sharon Stone is a bird-eating zombie.

During the red carpet show, Nicole said "I love this dress because of its structure. It's really comfortable, even though it doesn't look it."

Oh, looks it.

Zu-wa! Zu-wa!

The sun is shining on the wet grass and the warm breeze reminds me that summer is on its way.

I just want to hear a good beat.

Random Thoughts About The Grammys

Here are some random thoughts I jotted down during last night's telecast:

-'RETHA's Tribute. WAY Too long. Xtina with the different color mic stand. Really?? Get off it already, chubby.

Has Jen Hudson been sending her all the food she stopped eating or what??

Florence was the best part of this tribute.

And how about cutting that shit a bit and giving Lady T deserved respect instead of a half-sec shot in the middle during the In Memoriam...and not even give her the fuckin screen to herself. That was some serious bullshit.

-Ricky Martin...first wtf was up with those pants??? Secondly, yes you're gay YAY! Just 'cause you finally came out you don't now have to do EVERYTHING that's gay.

-Gaga...fuck it Gaga, kill 'em if they hate you. Just kill them all. Love the song and the performance was fun. I don't care if it sounds like Express Yourself (I honestly don't hear it that much) or Itsy Bitsy Spider, so the fuck what. Lavaux sounds like Automatic, Fergalicious sounds like Supersonic, Strong Enough sounds like I Will Survive and... blahblah

-Janelle Monae, I LOVE YOU!!!

-Justin Bieber and Ben (Usher) Vereen, I hate u both. THANK GAWD I'd accumulated enough on my dvr to skip both your asses.

-Bob Dylan and 28 Hillbillies...I wanted to kill myself 30 seconds into that whole thing. Holy shit, you couldn't understand this dude before. Was that just static coming out his mouth??

-Why does Lady Antebellum always make me think of a fab hag going out with her two favorite gays? She is too cute.

-Ceelo KA-MF-KAWWWWWWWW! Best of the night. And Gwenneth's shoes!!!

I enjoyed the show, overall, but I felt like I hardly saw folk going up to get awards. Exactly how many had been awarded beforehand? Wow.

I read something about some reporter having a stroke at the Grammys.

I blame this:

I thought I was having a stroke too but it just turned out to be bad fashion.

Happy Valentine's Day


After all these years, you still fill my world with excitement and laughter.
I can not imagine this life without you.
Happy Valentine's Day, my love.

Tell Us What You Love About Your Valentine!

As February 14th approaches I'm reminded that my partner and I will celebrate our 14th anniversary this summer. After all these years, he still laughs at my jokes and ridiculous behavior and supports all of my artistic endeavors unconditionally.

How long have you been with your Valentine? Share with us a thing or two you love about them here!

The New House So Far: Den & Bedroom

We have been working on home projects and painting walls since we moved in. Last weekend we finished off our bedroom and we are now done for a while. Spring will be here soon and we'll have a long list of outdoor projects. For now we will sit back and enjoy what we've accomplished so far.




We have been putting this look together for a while now, picking up this here and that there. Our goal was "masculine glamour" with a touch of Deco. The touches of "Manhattan" sort of came about on their own. Even in the paint color we used which is aptly named "Manhattan Mist".
