Shepard Fairey hits Chicago. These have been up for a few weeks, but I took these pictures on May 5. This is the underpass of Lake Shore Drive on Grand. This piece is actually legit, which means he’s sold out or something.

Minnie started a tumblr. It’s called C.L.I.T., which stands for CelebritiesidLiketoTouch.

And yours truly is featured. The Celebrity I’d Like to Touch will not be surprising.

Here is said video:

At first, I confused Sky Ferriera with Skye Sweetnam, who was best known for the song “Billy S” featured on the soundtrack for How to Deal. This is pretty insulting to Sky without an E, considering “Billy S” is really code for “Shakespeare”, and the chorus is:

“I don’t need to read Billy Shakespeare
Meet Juliet or Malvolio
Feel for once what it’s like to rebel now
I wanna break out lets go”

Burt’s Back!

Tags: ,

When I was working on my BA, I came across Burt Reynolds’ book Hot Line: The Letters I Get… and write!, published in 1972, during the prime of his fame. When I say came across I really mean I read about the book, and knew that trying to find the library that would Interlibrary Loan it to me would be difficult, so I merely cited it as a Fun Fact in my head and moved on. Thanks to the magic internet though, someone has kindly uploaded some of the best letters from Burt’s brilliant tome, and allowed me to get a glimpse as to what I’ve been missing.

Like this one:

I’m fairly certain this is from an underage female, making Burt’s response less than kosher, though perhaps during the free-wheelin’ ’70s, things would have been seen differently between them and a love affair could have bloomed.

Where will the boats go?! I’m really, really worried.

Preston Sturges: The finest director most people don’t really know about. My favorite is The Lady Eve, and Netflix Instant has a whole bunch to choose from.

Jeff Bridges is returning to his Crazy Heart roots, to which I say, good job and now can you please just do a sequel to The Fabulous Baker Brothers?

The creator of Dilbert is…not very smart.

Howard Dean continues to the the biggest badass. DEAN 2018!

Ricky Gervais is the world’s most articulate atheist. Or at least the funniest.

The Grammys are cutting over 30 award categories. Editing really does help, kids!

This interview with Fred Willard is just too good to excerpt.

Discussing the anniversary of Penguin’s 75th anniversary, art director Paul Buckley talks about how its okay to judge a book by its cover.

The Mona Lisa was real, and there will be bone proof. This does not make the painting any less overrated.

Should Alcoholics stay Anonymous? David Colman makes a compelling argument for coming out of the closet.

Get over yourself Will Smith: His 1100 sq. ft. trailer, plus a second one for his gym, is angering SoHo residents. I would feel worse for them if it wasn’t SoHo…


Annie Liebowitz might be broke and stuff, but she still takes good pictures of beautiful famous people.

I just want brass knuckles, but not brass, ever.

What if you lived at Ikea? I wish.

Or here. Please and thank you.

This house is one part FLW, one part Little House on the Prairie (Banks of Plum Creek/sodhouse days).

The differences between Mac and PC people are not quite what you’d think they’d be.

Ketchup and stain removal in one interactive ad campaign. Consider me sold.


RollingStone is streaming Stevie Nicks’ newest album “In Your Dreams.” I like to imagine her yelling this phrase at people.

Elvis Costello covers. Laura Cantrell does “Indoor Fireworks.”


I love Jello.

Some people are very very very good whistlers. It took other people a long time to just fake it.

The weather has not been good to Chicago this week; in fact, it’s been the definition of a fickle mistress. That’s not related to this video, it’s just to say that things have been better and I look forward to them being so again.

I haven’t made it through all of these interviews with Matthew Weiner, but here’s more information about Mad Men than you always wanted to know.

I appreciated the power of Robert Ebert’s words before, but somehow, they’ve become more moving now that he can’t speak.

The Beast File – Apple (HUNGRY BEAST) from Elmo Keep on Vimeo.

Apple isn’t always so nice, unfortunately.

Linda Ronstadt sings “My Boyfriend’s Back.” She also dated California Governor Jerry Brown. Oh wait, I’m sorry, she was his “occasional companion.”
