A Man With a Vision. Which Includes Kittehs, Apparently.

I watched this video wanting to not like this man, but he is too cute not to like.

Money… It’s a Hit

I think it says a lot about my age when every time I see anything about the new Transformers movie, my mind automatically turns it into “The Dark Side of the Moon.”

I don’t know much about Shia LeBeouf.  Well, actually, he seems kind of like a self-centered jerk. But what I do know is that since he ruined the last Indiana Jones movie for me, I refuse to pay money to watch him perform.  Cate Blanchett wasn’t any good in the movie either, but it’s Cate Blanchett.  Galadriel gets a lifetime pass.

Good Tuesday to you, my friends, good Tuesday. This is Glinda, current author of both Manolo Beauty and Teeny Manolo.

My lovely colleague raincoaster has been temporarily sidelined.  So I am stepping in to fill some very large, albeit gin-soaked, shoes.  Unfortunately, I lack raincoaster’s Assange/alcohol/Viggo obsessions, but hopefully she will be back sooner rather than later.

Today I present alleged singer Porcelain Black, fresh from the BET awards.

Hon, you know you’ve got problems when a 3 year old rocks the cone bra better than you do.

Seersucker Thursday

Finally, the US government does something I like: they celebrate the immortal holiday known around the world (or at least around the Capitol) as Seersucker Thursday. Guess what they do on Seersucker Thursday? Sure, wear seersucker suits, but they also…um.


Play seersucker games?

It is indeed difficult to go wrong with seersucker, perhaps the greatest of America’s innumerable contributions to fabric; however, as the woman on the far right demonstrates, it is indeed possible.

Senators better dressed than in togas

Diagonals? Really??? Diagonals? Somebody didn’t go to boarding school!
