TTMMW: Overdue

It’s been months, so if this is all old news, well excuseeeee me.

READ

Alexander McQueen was inspired by Friends.

Rock Hudson was gay. Here’s a look at his hidden “bachelorhood.”

A woman got really unhappy because people were putting plastic Flamingos on her lawn. So she’s basically an idiot, because that is a fine fine gift.

The guy who designed the literal Wheel of Fortune and did art direction for Jeopardy! died. His name was Ed Flesh. Yes. Also the man who invented Doritos died, and he was buried with them.

Linda Ronstadt is writing a memoir. So is Neil Young. And Patti Smith’s Just Kids will become a movie.

A very thorough look at time zones and how ridiculous they are.

I appreciate any recent reference to Simply Red.

Make some egg salad sandwiches, but in a very classy way. Also make some potato pancakes with leftover mashed potatoes courtesy of Gretchen (as if there would ever be leftovers!)

A glimpse of anything you ever wanted to know about Paul Taylor and all that dance is now available.

Roseanne is back with a vengeance, with her major policy position based on legalizing marijuana.

As if we even thought it was possible, Craig Ferguson steps up the crazy and films a week’s worth of shows in Paris.

LOOK


My piano teacher growing up would have been all over these.


I would stay in this hotel in a hot second. If I had my stockpile of old magazines with me right now I’d pull out this amazing Times Magazine where these designers used salvaged oil tankers as rooms in their homes.

Pre-fabs and contemporary ranch style homes? Sign me up (and remember the great MOMA exhibit on pre-fabs from a couple years ago).


Glass Beach is in MacKerricher State Park in California. There’s all this sea glass because of years trash being dumped nearby.

A connect-the-dots Mona Lisa, and a Mona Lisa made of far fewer dots.


An Apple tree.


There was a Playboy gallery exhibit. NSFW images, obviously – which isn’t stopping this little boy.


More stamps for people who like good looking things.

Dress your life like you’re in Benny and Joon.

Girls and boys growing up.

And photos of your favorite country singers (and some less impressive ones too, what can you do).

LISTEN


Steve Earle’s “Galway Girl.” Fun fact: He’s been married seven times, twice to the same woman (the current wife is Allison Moorer, a talented singer-songwriter in her own right). Must be why his music is so good.

LOOK & LISTEN

Do a day in the life with Pixar genius John Lassater.

Running on Empty (Revisited) from Ross Ching on Vimeo.

LA didn’t have cars for a bit and it was glorious.


Check out “The Secret Life of Swimmers,” by photographer Judy Starkman. She took photos of people who swim at public pools. It is a bit of a secret club.

The Usual

“Roseanna Arquette.” Look at the love between these two beautiful men.

Also someone I know was in an elevator with Jeff Goldblum the other day and said that he was very tall and had an amazing voice. You didn’t hear it here, but who is TOTALLY UNSURPRISED?

It’s Been A Week Of Jeff Goldblum And Boy Does It Feel Good

1) He Reminds Us of Another Reason to See Annie Hall

Skip to the end. Except the part with Cher is really good too, so maybe watch that also.

2) He Performs The Best Song Ever

A quality cover:

3) He’s in a halfway decent Rom Com
Love me some Rachel McAdams. Also, anything that puts Harrison Ford against Diane Keaton is a-okay in my book. Though there was some pretty blatant product placement for Emergen-C and it I’m saying that, you know it’s serious. Is it possible to become addicted to a fizzy vitamin C powder?

4) “Please welcome the American treasure that is Jeff Goldblum everybody.”

PART 1

AND IT CONTINUES

5) His Stalker Gets Out Of Jail
And he isn’t allowed to get a new restraining order against her because there isn’t a “fresh threat”? Jeff, I personally volunteer myself for the job of your 24/7 bodyguard until your safety can be confirmed again.

And that’s this week in Jeff Goldblum!
