Separated at Birth?

BY Laurie in General

I saw the new Monsters v. Aliens this weekend and thought it was pretty amazing. Not just for kids, I swear! And it's in 3D. Is it just me, or does Gallaxhar (from Monsters vs. Aliens) remind you of Mojo Jo Jo (Powerpuff Girls)? I've always loved outrageously sinister villians, and they did a fun job with the squid like Gallaxhar. Even tho he is a squid, he has a monkey face, just like MJJ, and an extremely large brain. I actually loved all the characters, the ... Read More

Mike Mills in NYC

One of my most favorite living designers, Mike Mills (not the REM dude) is speaking at The Strand on Friday night in NYC.

Happy Birthday, Gloria

75 years young today! ... Read More
Last night this commercial came on and it sort of left me with my jaw hanging open. It should be a funny, obvious joke ad, like the ones for guys (Axe) where they are clearly making a pun, but it was done in a subtle lady like way, with vaguley sexy, wine bar electronic background music. Bleh, it takes the fun out of the pubes=trimming the hedges joke, guys! While I am all for making fun of girls that are all serious about trimming their pubes into landing ... Read More

Meet the Fempire

BY Laurie in General

There's an interesting article in the NYT's Sunday Styles section today about Diablo Cody's gang of screenwriter friends who live and work in LA that totally made me smile. They call themselves The Fempire, and it's about 4 female writers that support each other and are actually doing something for us girls by writing smart and funny scripts for women. Debbie and I had the delightful opportunity to meet and interview Diablo awhile back and she is everything we ... Read More

Absolutely Strange

BY Laurie in General

It seems we've done it again. Taken a British comedy classic and Americanized it (The Office, Posh and David Beckham) This time we set our target on the British sitcom Absolutely Fabulous (or Ab Fab if you are a real fan). If you have not seen this show, please watch it right now.... but only if you are a fan of immature, chain-smoking, alcoholic, fashion-obsessed, fame-hungry, middle-aged ladies who live in London. I was concerned the first time I heard about ... Read More
