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…

LOOK

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.

LISTEN

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.”

WATCH


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.”

TTMMW: Read, Look, Listen, Look & Listen

READ
Patti Smith is writing a sequel to Just Kids. Yes yes.

Jim Parsons of The Big Bang Theory and Lee Pace of Pushing Daisies under one roof? Yes please. (Also Ellen Barkin).

Is Roger Federer over? For Anna Wintour’s sake, I hope not.

Willie Nelson is both the subject of a documentary directed by none other than Billy Bob Thorton, and a drug bust for marijuana (again), where a judge JOKINGLY said that if he sang a song, he could go free.

Atlantis for realz?! I hope so.

There’s dramz involving Etta James’ estate. I really really hope this gets wrapped up in a way that would make her happy, because this is just too sad.

Miles Davis biopic. If anyone can do it, it’s Don Cheadle. Not to be a downer, but it’s rarely easy to sum up a life in a movie.

The funnest of facts about the Toy Story trilogy. But one of the most interesting facts isn’t even about Toy Story or its sequels; did you know that Alice and Wonderland is the sixth highest grossing movie of all-time. Yea, that weird Tim Burton remake version.

The New York Times is reviewing children’s books online. Legitimating the genre, or responding to Park Slope parents?

LOOK
Young hollywood hotties looking old and vintage. About half of these are from Vanity Fair‘s “Vanities Girls” series, so there’s no deep-digging here, but it’s still nice to look at.

Take me here now please. More shots at the jump. It’s Switzerland, of course.

Live in an airstream; it’s the life.

This exhibit of photos of African American images of beauty from the 1890s to Present looks awesome

B. Deck’s cut her hair and it looks good!

I need more information about this product, specifically, where I can get one:

From her biography, which I still haven’t read; please, Jessie, just leave it at my house and I will roll through it.

These plans for the New York City waterfront look excellent.

Black Orpheus is an amazing movie, and this breakdown of how to “live in it” can make you too feel as though you’re in Brazil during Carnivale.

Jello is super cool. Here are a few more reasons to love it. I fondly remember my family reunion in Iowa in ’98 where we were served green jello with marshmallows and I just…gaped.

LISTEN
To Paul Simon’s new album.

LOOK & LISTEN
Cab drivers are required to pick you up if their light is on. KNOW THE LAW.

New York, way back when. It looks almost fake.

Marcel gets his own show…on SyFy. Dear god. It gets better: the show is called Marcel’s Quantum Kitchen.

Nicole Miller tv. She was the first designer I remember being enticed by through advertising. I wanted that skirt made of ties.

Jennifer Aniston “sex tape.” Not to take away from her accomplishments, but I do wonder if she would have been as famous without Brad, and vice versa. Probs not. It really is the Eddie Fisher – Elizabeth Taylor – Debbie Reynolds love triangle of the 21st century.

David Letterman is a creeper and you can see so yourself by watching these clips of him checking out his lady guests. But like, what else is new?
