Idiot Box: Wendy Williams – The Greatest Farce Of All

Sorry, I ain't buying Wendy Williams' spurious bullshit. Making Whitney's death all about her is tacky enough, but this is the woman who was relentless on outing Houston and her best friend Robyn as lesbians back in her radio days. She's been an interminable bully for years - to Whitney and various other celebrities - … Continue reading Idiot Box: Wendy Williams – The Greatest Farce Of All

Music Box Report Card: My Favorite CDs of 2011

(Hey, I'm my own worst editor, so beware my pontificating. If you wanna edit me pro bono, I'm all ears. Call me.) Though my lack of writing of late has more to do with my ADD than it does with any laziness to share my opinion (something I rarely have any problem with), it’s hard … Continue reading Music Box Report Card: My Favorite CDs of 2011

Reel Life: I Love Rock ‘N Roll (But…)

Believe it or not, I never saw the Broadway show the film is based on, which was wildly entertaining, according to my friends who actually did see it and whose opinions matter to me. It sounds like pure camp-heaven, so eventually I’ll get off my highfalutin horse and stroll on over to the Helen Hayes … Continue reading Reel Life: I Love Rock ‘N Roll (But…)

So while I can dispute the winners of last night’s MTV Video Music Awards with a flair of knowledge, it’s best to understand that to argue is a moot point. The “best” … Continue reading Idiot Box: MTV VMyAwn…

Might As Well JUMP (the Shark?)!

As an unabashedly proud, die hard GLEEK, the news that Ryan Murphy, creator and head honcho of GLEE, would be mounting a Broadway musical based on the show, should be a cause for jubilation. But why do I feel a wee unsettled?  GLEE has saturated the Pop Culture landscape, and I'm not sure how far … Continue reading Might As Well JUMP (the Shark?)!

Imma Let You Finish, But Kanye West Has Some Of The Most Random Tweets Of All Time…Of ALL TIME

I can't imagine any one of his 400,000+ Twitter followers (including yours truly) not having a chuckle or two (or twenty) at his oddball stream-of-consciousness (and, natch, pompous) tweets, - which are more akin to Tracy Morgan's 30 ROCK Tracy Jordan persona than he'd probably ever like to admit - but suppose Kanye West's twitter … Continue reading Imma Let You Finish, But Kanye West Has Some Of The Most Random Tweets Of All Time…Of ALL TIME
