Tweet My eyes almost popped out of my head when I saw a photo of the possibly-death-obsessed singer Lana Del Rey in London. Check it out! Her t-shirt features the 1990 “Women of Twin Peaks” Rolling Stone cover that hung on my wall for many years. I can imagine pouty Lana being an Audrey Horne fan […]

Tweet MrB and I recently started watching Man Men. We finished the first season a few days ago.  “Shoot” — episode 9 of season 1 — has really stuck with me. During the last few moments of that one, MrB and I kept looking at each other and saying, “THIS IS GREAT!” I immediately got […]

In honor of the landmark, it ranked the 25 people it described as having “the most profound impact on business and finance since 1989, the year CNBC went live.” MrB was on the committee that selected the top list.

Tweet We wore some seriously oversized tops in the 1980s. Giant t-shirts, giant vests, giant button-front shirts, giant sweatshirts, giant jackets. Size mattered! Some time ago, I caught a rerun of Cheers that brought back fond memories of the too-big look. Cheers is great for any kind of ’80s style spotting, of course, but guest […]

Tweet 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 […]

Tweet Did any of you watch Seth Meyers’ Late Night debut last night? I didn’t, but every time I read about or see something about Meyers and his  fellow Saturday Night Live alum Jimmy Fallon’s takeover of The Tonight Show, I think, “Thank Xenu that NBC’s late-night shows are safely in the hands of white […]

Tweet GeorgeB’s big birthday on Saturday was a lot of fun. After the celebratory dinner, Terri Berry and I lined up with Dad for an updated version of our 1989 birthday photo. Then we gave him kisses … … which inspired his sons-in-law to do the same. My mom and nephew got in on the […]

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 […]
