Tweet I’ve been meaning to write about the Taylor Swift concert I attended on July 11, when I had to chaperone a major fangurl all the way to MetLife Stadium in New Jersey … … but I was lazy about getting all my concert photos watermarked. However, there’s no time like the present to get […]

Tweet I was in Chicago over the weekend to visit family and attend the Ravinia Festival in Highland Park, Ill. The festival’s website says Ravinia (named for the Ravinia Park grounds where it is held) is the oldest outdoor music festival in North America. Who knew?! Ravinia isn’t a stand-all-day-to-see-Eminem, Lollapalooza-like event. It’s very civilized. […]

Tweet Because it is Lana del Rey’s 30th birthday (ah, youth!), it’s time for me to post a few photos of her performance at the Governors Ball music festival earlier this month. The three-day, four-stage festival takes place on New York City’s Randall’s Island, and I was there for two days with my concert-going friend […]

Tweet I finally got to meet my Florida-based customer Hi-Rez in person when he played the Studio at Webster Hall on June 3. He put on a great show with guest appearances by rappers Emilio Rojas; Joell Ortiz of Slaughterhouse; Smoke DZA; and Cory Gunz. I got some good mid-air shots of Cory. This isn’t […]

Tweet In 1982, when I was in high school, the Who went on a farewell tour. My gorgeous but strict mother, BarbaraB, wouldn’t let me go to the New Jersey show. I cried and cried because, after all, it was a FAREWELL TOUR! My last chance EVER to see The Who! Last chance, that is, […]

Tweet E! Online has compared Lady Gaga’s latest hairstyle to Pippi Longstocking‘s braids. But when I saw E!’s tweet, I didn’t think Pippi at all. What I thought was, “Been there, seen that, got the t-shirt.” The braided lady on that t-shirt is gorgeous Wall Street Journal artist Noli Novak. When I worked at the […]

Tweet I’m still recovering from JCK Las Vegas, the gigantic jewelry trade show that took place over the weekend. It’s not Vegas-style partying that exhausts me. It’s seeing hundreds of thousands of jewelry styles in one place that’s exhausting! The highlight of any JCK experience is meeting up with my group of amazing social-media wimmin […]

Tweet I’m excited to see my customer Hi-Rez getting some much-deserved attention. Rez recently teamed up with YouTube prankster Coby Persin, sauntered into a Times Square McDonald’s, and rapped a crazy-ass order to the befuddlement of the McDonald’s staff. The video was shared by Lil Wayne on Facebook and has close to five million views. […]

Tweet My concert-going friend Jessie and I have been busy lately, with the highlight being Wednesday’s Paramore show at the Beacon Theatre. Thanks to StubHub, I got second-row center seats … and thanks to Eminem and Rihanna, I had Jessie to go with. I met Jessie when I was waiting in line for Em and […]

Tweet Rapper Trinidad James gives good interview! In 2013, I wrote about an interview he did with The Fader four months after he signed with record label Def Jam on the strength of his independently produced “All Gold Everything” video. He seemed like a sensible guy to me. When The Fader asked him, “Is getting […]
