Today at Houston and 2nd Avenue, the BMW Guggenheim lab will be unveiled to the citizens of NYC. This project, which is a collection of designers, architects, artists, scientists, etc, has been established to create roaming “think tanks” that ask communities simple questions about how they live and, more importantly, how they want to live. By pulling together innovators […]Read more "Communities talking about their homes: BMW Guggenheim Lab"
I have been made aware of the fact that perhaps content on this blog is too gyno-centric. Or, I talk about chick stuff too much. That said, I have invited a few of my readers to help contribute to this – the first post on men’s fashion. Looking at a Men’s Street Wear article from […]Read more "Coffee talk: Men’s Fashion Edition"
In general, in life, I like meaning. Or rather, I like “things” that have meaning. This is what intrigues, puzzles, and repulses me about contemporary art. Is it supposed to look like that? Does it mean something to the artist? Does it mean anything at all? Am I supposed to get it? And so, even […]Read more "Manchego Rachel"

So, the news is out on Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony’s divorce, and, to be honest, I am happy. Happy because I think that Jennifer Lopez can come back from “Brave”, women’s razor commercials, and Paula Abdul replacement tv spots. Once she gets herself in order, she is going to Rock! I think “On the Floor” […]Read more "We still love you, Jenny! Welcome back"
I have talked about nowness.com several times on this blog. I love it and so I must shamelessly steal content that they put out earlier this week. iPlayboy has released a more culturally refined and fashion oriented selection of celebrity favorites from the Playboy archive. From the article: “The idea is to give people another way to view the […]Read more "But it’s art… iPlayboy"

Brazilian music should be a huge part of anyone’s summer soundtrack. So excited that Red Hot + Rio 2 was released this week. Of course, you can find it on iTunes but thought I would share some music so that way your day can feel less like a carnival and more like Carnival! Here is […]Read more "Red Hot + Rio 2"
Who does a better version of “Cry Me a River?” Justin Timberlake, who’s movie “Bad Teacher” placed 2nd on box office sales on Friday night? or Michael Buble?Read more "Cry Me A River — Justin or Michael — you choose!"
Saying that dance is mathematical is the worst possible thing you could say to an aspiring performer. Odds are, if you are good at barre, you are terrible in calculus. And yet what most dancers and musicians, for that matter, don’t realize is that both disciplines rely on more higher mathematical skills than a marketing professional […]Read more "Mathematical, collaborative, dancing genius — Merce Cunningham"
This post is the first of my coverage of my trip to Las Vegas.

It lifted freight traffic 30 […]Read more "The Phenomonelogy of the High Line (Phase 2)"
So, I really want to maintain my love affair with Shakira. I really do. When I saw her at the W Hotel in Barcelona this past fall in her black mini dress and ridiculously high Christian Louboutin stiletto knee boots, she was so adorable standing there like a little princess on stilts. She is, indeed, […]Read more "Unfortunately… Shakira [Rabiosa]"
I made a plea for post ideas this weekend and received one from my LA-based artist friend Diana-Sofia Estrada. Thinking I was going to get a mental challenge, I was surprised when she answered with one simple, glorious word: shoes. How can I resist? So, in keeping with my feather fetish as epitomized by my […]Read more "My feather fetish continues"
So although I have already started planning for my upcoming trip to Vegas and the opportunities I will have to wear those red feather high heels that have been sleeping in my closet since I bought them 4 years ago, that fashion opportunity pales in comparison to the GLEE of calling up your best friend fashion […]Read more "Oh!
