You thrilled to me as Angelina Jolie, you blanched when you saw me as Tan Mom.
Well, now I'm Honey Boo Boo Child--fixing up one helluva deadly punch--thanks to this enchanting illustration by Julia Minamata.
In my extremely entertaining and informative annual wrapup, I break 2012 down for you, starting with the groundswell of libertarianism which helped Obama get re-endorsed despite the still faltering economy.
I explain how we can partly thank the fact that Mitt Romney didn't provide a solid alternati ... More >>
For a while, Clint Eastwood was the true third party in this election. After his endorsement for Romney, the Hollywood bravado set off a media firestorm with his self-destructive tirade against a stool during the RNC and his even more self-destructive explanation of said speech. We laughed, we cried ... More >>
A Star Is Born has been redone even more times than my living room.
(See below for previous versions.)
And the throbbingly emotional show biz tale, filled with music and suicide, was set to be done one more time, with chair-talker Clint Eastwood directing and Beyonce starring.
But the singer had ... More >>
When we reported a few weeks back that Clint Eastwood endorsed Mitt Romney, we had no idea that the campaign would give him the podium; one that was being watched by millions of people. Or that he would give one of the most memorable speeches in convention history. Needless to say, we were gleefully ... More >>

At the Republican convention last night, Clint Eastwood made jaws drop by talking to an empty chair--no, not one of the ones from the theater for his last movie.
It was supposed to represent Obama, who was invisible (though I'm pretty sure I heard him cackling from miles away) as the Oscar winner t ... More >>
This is the best Presidential endorsement by a famous old guy since Jon Voight (who now supports Romney as well) told reporters in 2008 that Rudy Giuliani's "commitment to keeping our military strong and his track record of transforming New Yorkers makes him the right man at the right time for ...

This was a couple of years ago, but I remember it way more vividly than the call I got just today from Rachel from Cardholder Services.
Hillary was calling to remind me to vote Democrat, though as I picked up the phone to say, "Hey, Hill, I'm here!" she just kept on talking!
How very rude! ... More >>
In this week's Village Voice, our cover story is on the Nitrous Mafia, the gas-fueled drug gang that is terrorizing music festivals up and down both coasts. Elsewhere, Rob Harvilla talks with OutKast's Big Boi on the long-delayed occasion of the release of Sir Lucious Left Foot, Jessica Hoppe ... More >>
No, not the hotel--I mean the genre. To me, westerns have always been like spinach--ill-tasting and probably not even that good for you.
