When I was a kid, I was crazy for Fruit Stripe gum. A photo brings the Fruit Stripe taste back to me instantly. The taste leaves me just as quickly, which makes the whole experience totally realistic because Fruit Stripe gum has only about five seconds of flavor in it. The disappointment of Fruit Stripe […]

You never get over your first love. I don’t mean your middle-school crush or high-school boyfriend/girlfriend. Who cares about those people?! Damn, I can’t even remember any names.  The romantic feelings that last are your first music and fashion loves.  Even if you don’t listen to those bands or wear those styles any more, I […]

October’s Jewel of the Month are the Halloween-appropriate hockey mask and chainsaw stud earrings, available in silver … … and gold-plated silver. Because I’m all about the single-earring look, you can also buy just a chainsaw (or two) stud or just a mask. I’ve also got the mask available as a ring. Although the chainsaw […]

I was managing editor of People Magazine’s website in 1999, and I’ve subscribed to the magazine ever since I left that job. Today, I was flipping through the Sept. 15, 2014, issue and came across an item about the recent celebrity nude-photo hacking. Because it slut-shamed and blamed actress Jennifer Lawrence and model Kate Upton […]

Back in 1980, I got a fever and the only prescription was John, Paul, George and Ringo. Since then, I’ve wanted to go to Liverpool, the Fab Four’s hometown. It’s difficult to schedule a trip to Liverpool though. It doesn’t top most non-Beatlemaniac vacation lists, so every year, I’ve told myself, “Maybe next year.” Then […]

While brainstorming new additions to my vast collection of emoji-inspired jewelry designs, I came across the Rejected Emojis Tumblr. If Family Guy‘s Peter Griffin had been put in charge of new emoji, we would definitely have random-ass things like … … and … Check out the blog for other highlariously surreal emojis including the lightly […]

I’m very sad about David Letterman retiring! Even when it comes to television hosts, I’m like Stewie on Family Guy. Dave was so different and shocking when he first got on the air. The parents kept watching Johnny Carson on The Tonight Show and the kids all switched to Letterman. People forget how revolutionary Letterman […]

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 heyday, […]

I’m Jewish but I have a few Christmas-related odds-and-ends. I rediscovered some of these while going through old stuff at my childhood home this year. If any of y’all still have an old-timey record player, we can celebrate Hall & Oates’ stunning induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame by playing this seasonal […]

This one isn’t quite as over-the-top as the vintage Versace dress on this morning’s wish list post.  The small Pandora bag by Givenchy is gorgeous in person — the photo doesn’t do it justice. Of course, I need another bag like Family Guy‘s Peter Griffin needs a hole in his head. So I’ll admire it […]
