Tweet Last night, I had the horrifying realization that my almost-husband Paul McCartney was at the Vanity Fair Oscar party on Sunday and — somehow — I didn’t see him. Best!Party!Ever! turned into Worst!Missed!Opportunity!Ever! in the blink of an eye. I started desperately searching for information about what time Macca and his lovely wife arrived […]

Tweet Did you watch last night’s The Beatles: The Night That Changed America – A Grammy Salute, the 50th-anniversary celebration of the Beatles’ performance on the Ed Sullivan show? I loved it … except for the appearances of Maroon 5 and assorted, random-seeming actors. I’m wondering if Johnny Depp, Sean Penn and Kate Beckinsale are close […]

Tweet The Grammys are tonight and Eminem’s “Berzerk” is nominated for Best Rap Performance. I hope rocker Billy Squier has been making mad money from that song, which samples Squier’s 1981 hit, “The Stroke.” Billy deserves it! I have been meaning to write about Billy for years. I didn’t see him perform live in his […]

Tweet Why write a new Christmas Day post when I wrote the perfect one in 2008? Here is “Happy Holiday, Goyim!” again, with a new, working version of the video and a couple of other updated links: Every December 25, I get into the holiday spirit by reminiscing about an idiot I knew in my […]

Tweet On the weekends, I spend a lot of time reading old-fashioned paper copies of the New York Times and Wall Street Journal. I still enjoy newsprint because being forced to flip pages leads me to things I’d never see if I were clicking only what was of obvious interest to me on a website. […]

Tweet Here’s a really old photo — a Polaroid, in fact — for Throwback Thursday. I had recently turned 14 in this picture from 1982. As you can tell from the name of my Shih Tzu puppy, my love for the Beatles was in full effect. (Even though Paul was my favorite Beatle, the dog […]

Tweet In 2000, Yoko Ono paid for this gun-control billboard showing her late husband John Lennon’s blood-stained glasses. I’m appalled by the number of gun-related tragedies that have occurred since then.

Tweet I can’t let the day go by without wishing a happy 70th birthday to my almost-husband Paul McCartney. I totally would have married the guy, but I have a thing for younger men and MrB doesn’t turn 70 till August. Call me shallow! But, seriously, I like what McCartney had to say about age […]

Tweet If you’re involved in fashion in any way — blogger, designer, magazine editor — people often ask you to describe your personal style. I have a tough time answering that question. I don’t have one of those colorful, yet confusing, descriptions that all the real fashionistas seem to have on the tips of their […]

Tweet Congratulations to my almost-husband Paul McCartney for marrying the nice-seeming and very attractive Nancy Shevell. I think she’s perfect for him because she: doesn’t have a resume of crazy. can presumably tolerate annoying thumb activity, pot and the word “veggie.” Speaking of Paul, the New York Times called him “impossibly charming” in the Martin […]
