Oscar Schmoscar: Get Your Priorities Straight!

Oscar Schmoscar: Get Your Priorities Straight! ADDENDUM November 2011: So, no one listens to me and Billy Crystal is back hosting the Oscars. Let me guess. He will open with one of his lovely (zzz) songs. Surely the lyrics will include a dig to Brett Ranter and Eddie Murphy along with the other nominees. I smell a dig to Brad Pitt and George Clooney already. Heck, maybe I should help him write the lyrics. All I know is that they better not linger too long on the Billy Crystal of it all and get...

This Week in Photography Books: Charles Traub

  My kids love the Beatles. Can’t get enough, really. (My son in particular.) Who doesn’t love the Beatles, though? Right? Those guys might well have been the four most-likable-mugs the world has ever seen. (You’d have to have quite the cold, dead heart not to enjoy some chunk of their canon.) Honestly, I listen to that shit all the time. I love that Beatles channel on the Sirius radio. One time, riding with my son, we actually heard a fan takeover on the station. Some Baby-Boomer-Jewish-guy bid...

Why Kevin Hart Was the Wrong Choice to Host the Oscars (Column)

I’m not a person who tends to have a censorious attitude toward stand-up comedians. One of their jobs is to give voice to the audacious, the outrageous, the rudely incorrect. If we looked back, in hindsight, and vetted comic artists from Lenny Bruce to Richard Pryor to George Carlin to Sandra Bernhard to Eddie Murphy […]

Give This Mulan Hair Comb to a Girl Worth Fighting For

If you were a '90s kid, you were probably captivated by Mulan's fantastic songs, funny sidekicks (thanks, Eddie Murphy), and colorful kimonos. As a Disney-loving adult, you may have realized that Mulan is the badass feminist leader we needed in a sea of princesses as a child, and she's still cool as hell today. When we discovered that pop-culture-packed store BoxLunch was selling the exact hair comb the heroine wears in the movie, we couldn't wait to buy the Disney Mulan Hair Comb ($6, origina...

Guillermo del Toro has considerable clout in Hollywood now after winning Best Director and Best Picture for The Shape of Water.

The most vomitous $10 million mansions on Zillow

Katie Notopoulos of Buzzfeed has found a new way to amuse herself -- looking at houses on Zillow that cost more than $10 million, yet still suck. So I moved the sliding toggle out of the price range that might, in theory, be realistic for me, to find houses in the area that cost more than $10 million — just out of curiosity. And what I found was pure, hideous, tacky, gilded-and-marble joy. I found mansions with suits of armor in the hallway, made to look like medieval castles. Mansions clearly ...
