RIP Phyllis Diller

Phyllis Diller

Phyllis Diller

If your house is really a mess and a stranger comes to the door greet him with, “Who could have done this? We have no enemies.”

Phyllis Diller

As they say on Tumblr, GPOY.

Phyllis Diller is my spirit animal, and now that she’s gone to meet her maker (he’s SCARED and he’s getting out the good cocktail glasses) the world is a duller place. It is even a less stylish place.

Gaga, Keshia, and Nicki Minaj are just going to have to find someone else to rip off.

There is no neck, however heinous, that cannot be improved upon by an enormous collar of plastic beads.

When in doubt, add eyelashes. And rhinestones, in case the eyelashes feel conspicuous.

I don’t know what the question was, but the answer was obviously “VOLUME!”

You can hardly blame them for putting a price on her head. At least, parts of it.

Phyllis Diller was an American Rose

How I wish I could have found a recording of her singing The Rose, but as a consolation prize here she is singing her theme song, “(I can’t get no) Satisfaction). Yes, really.

RIP Flattus Maximus

Flattus Maximus = Flattus Linus

Flattus Maximus = Flattus Linus

Yes, GWAR guitarist Flattus Maximus (also known as Cory Smoot) has left the planet. When not Christmas Caroling with his heavy metal bandmates, Flattus was one of the most respected musicians ever to wear latex Triceratops epaulets, and his loss will be felt by many, particularly those who’ve always been after his job.

It’s amazing what some people will do to get out of playing Edmonton.


Fashion’s Loss: RIP Steve Jobs

Only Coco had such flair

Steve Jobs: only Coco herself had such flair

Today the fashion world is poorer for the loss of one of its great muses, Steven Paul Jobs, co-founder of Apple Computer. As with the great DV, he found his look early, and stuck with it, eschewing the bow ties of his wild youth and reaching again and again for the guy’s version of the LBD: a pair of 501’s, some New Balance sneaks, and a St. Croix mock turtleneck (in the early, lean, NeXT years, it was Gap). As always, true style didn’t go unnoticed: among those he inspired is Ralph Rucci:

What is “wholly originally…. ow[ing[] absolutely nothing to any precedent?”

“Three things: White cotton T-shirt, a pair of 501 Levi Strauss jeans, and a black cashmere turtleneck.”


You can give the Steve Jobs Paper Doll a new look at this fun site (I like the KISS outfit), or take a voyeuristic stroll through his closet.

Also: nobody ever believes me he was hot back in the day, but look for yourself.

Katie Holmes is tight, tucked

Katie Holmes floral nightmare

and, apparently, oblivious to the fact that her dress is caught in her pantyhose.

Let’s toast the fact that WE are not, as Gallagher says, walking around with our clothes tucked into our underwear, with a Kilt Lifter Ale and a sigh of relief.

Zombie Michael Jackson Presents: Lifelike Links

Two days before the one-year anniversary of Michael Jacksons death, Madame Tussauds studio artist Morfy Gikas touches up the MJ wax figure on display with the original plaster cast of his hand in New York City, New York on June 23, 2010. Madame Tussauds around the World will pay tribute to Jackson, whose death on June 25 of last year shocked the world. Each attraction is said to create its own tribute exhibit to the King Of Pop and New York has started the process of setting up their tribute.  Fame Pictures, Inc

Still more lifelike than Mickey Rourke.

RIP Louise Bourgeois

The world has lost not only one of its great sculptors, but one of the last living avatars of those delightfully tarnished angels who used fashion with originality and humour, rather than allowing themselves to be used by it. There’s only Anna Piaggi and Daphne Guinness left now.

Louise Bourgeois

Louise: Say hi to Millicent Rogers and Isabella Blow for us; I’m SURE they’ll be happy to see you.

Britney’s Rigging Links

Britney's pink panties

So she’s wearing underwear you can see through her dress, that hideous orange-red lipstick I already blogged about, and Uggs. Trying to look on the bright side: thank GOD she is wearing underwear.

Blueberry Tea Links

Yes, yes, boring I know. Herbal tea gossip links just don’t have the dash of cocktail links, but what can I say? I’m giving my liver a month off for bad behaviour. It’s probably snorting Drano with Lindsay Lohan in Ibiza right this very moment.

Here’s a pic of Old Four Eyes to soften the disappointment.
