Weekend pop culture fun – picking out L&O actors in ‘Lincoln’

By: Sunday December 9, 2012 3:28 pm

I’m sure you can find dozens of reviews of Steven Spielberg’s “Lincoln,” an accomplished, brilliant film written by Tony Kushner. This post won’t be one of them. I will agree with this bit of Jackie K. Cooper’s review of the film: Steven Spielberg’s Lincoln is one of the best acted, best written, best directed movies [...]

Smooth 70s music break – The Spinners and Boz Scaggs

By: Friday October 26, 2012 10:54 am

Just in a wistful mood…I heard this classic on the radio this morning and it just made me feel so good, taking me back to the days of listening to my late Aunt Judi‘s 45s in the basement in Queens. This live version of The Spinners‘ “Could It Be I’m Falling in Love” is from [...]

Of course an unidentified flying object doesn’t necessarily mean an alien spacecraft, but still. What’s pretty ludicrous is that there are people out [...]

Can a short, fat blogmistress be fashionable? Does body image matter? Yes on both counts.
