When history is made, celebrities take to the twitter pad and shoot out their titillating thoughts.
Here are some of the best ones that notable people I follow came up with after Obama "evolved" yesterday:

Better than: Rewinding the DVR over and over again to hear "Video Games" on Gossip Girl.
Two years ago, Lizzy Grant's song "Kill Kill," which inhaled Nancy Sinatra's "Bang Bang" and exhaled a more listener-frien ... More >>
Long were the days when my nights when my days once revolved around you.
Cool Spotify timewaster of the day: If you search for "year:xxxx-xxxx" the browser will display the most popular songs released in that range in descending order. So what does this tell us about, say, this morning's heal ... More >>
"It takes two, baby," as Marvin & Tammi once sang.
So here are my all-time favorite twosomes -- musically, that is.
(13) "Cruisin'," Gwyneth Paltrow and Huey Lewis, 2000
This cover version of the Smokey Robinson hit came from a rotten movie about karaoke, but it grabbed me, with Gwynnie's creamy ... More >>
Now look what you've done. Last night Glasslands played host to a "secret" show by Lana Del Rey, an up-and-coming singer who was described by the one press release I received about her (in July) as a "gangster Nancy Sinatra" and whose overall aesthetic is like what would happen if you asked C ...

If the 1967 "classic" The Cool Ones ever pops up again on TCM, please do mama a favor and watch it.
This one had my kind of "good/badness" written all over it, and when I finally checked it out, it totally delivered, man.
A spoof of the '60s music biz, it centers on a girl (played by bland ... More >>
It's on the 13th floor of Resorts' Ocean Tower, but here's hoping that won't be an unlucky roll of the dice.
Resorts' LGBT marketing man Joel Ballesteros sent a bunch of us there this weekend for the gala opening, which started with a performance of the old-school drag revue "Believe--Divas ... More >>

CLICK HERE for my new column in which I go all old school and infiltrate a very intimate concert by Liza Minnelli, a private dinner for Sinatra Family Estate wines, hosted by the delicious Nancy Sinatra, and a Friars Club tribute to Jerry Lewis, whose wacky comedy I'm a big ... More >>
One of my eternal idols, Nancy Sinatra, invited me to a dinner at Patsy's for Sinatra Family Estate wines, so I brought Tony nominee Orfeh, who also loves Nancy, and went for the meatballs and the magic.
Between courses (and watching other people sample the wines), I talked to Nancy about h ... More >>
Hey, look, it's freaky little imp Aaron Kelly. CR: Michael Becker / FOX. Oh boy. Here we go. Sinatra Week. What a muddled and ill-conceived concept, even in a season that's attempted to grab attention by grabbing every iconic name off the shelf (Beatles, Stones, Elvis). I honestly can't imagi ... More >>

It seems uncharitable to permit Bob Dylan the opening statement on Jo ... More >>
Sixties icon and boot-wearer Nancy Sinatra is timelessly relevant to me, but she's even more so with this remixed version of her hit "Sugartown," using the clip from her groundbreaking TV special Movin' With Nancy. Have no idea what the fuck I'm talking about? Well, blithe, blonde Nancy had a succ ... More >>

Always thought "Papa Was a Rodeo" was a genuine love song. Satirical disclaimer, of course, written in uncharacteristically referential homage to Nancy Sinatra and Lee Hazelwood, apparently. But the best tributes take on their own lives and ... More >>
