Jeans vs. Corona: Sorgt die Pandemie für den Untergang des Denim-Klassikers?

Der Jeanskauf ist für mich immer mit einer gewissen Panik verbunden – ein Überbleibsel einer Zeit, in der ich in die meisten nicht reinpasste. Der Besuch in der Jeans-Abteilung war für mich als Teenager jedes Mal eine Mutprobe und endete zwangsläufig in Scham und Schande. (Verzeih mir mein mangelndes Selbstbewusstsein: Ich war ein Teenie mit einem Plus-Size-Körper in der Ära der Low-Waist-Jeans – lange bevor der Begriff Body Positivity aufkam). Ganz egal, wie dein Körper aussieht und wie du d...

Mickey Avalon is a 44 year old rapper from Hollywood, California blowing up on Halloween 2006 with the release of his self-titled debut & then the loose single “What Do You Say?” appearing in The Hangover just 3 years later.

Gardening: The healthiest plant that you never have to water

The healthiest hibiscus plant I have ever seen is never watered. It flowers heavily nearly all the time and its leaves are always a lush deep green. I know you’re wondering how this can be, so I won’t keep you in suspense. This hibiscus is growing on the edge of an asphalt driveway. Rainwater is no doubt trapped beneath the asphalt and the hibiscus’ roots luxuriate in the constantly moist soil throughout the year. Even during a drought, the plant barely shows any signs of discontent. It will som...

Notorious flop ‘Showgirls’ gets a fresh look in documentary ‘You Don’t Nomi’

In the summer of 2015, Jeffrey McHale was sitting with friends on the grass at the Hollywood Forever Cemetery for a 20th anniversary screening of the notoriously over-the-top 1995 flop “Showgirls.” McHale, a television editor, didn’t see the film when it was first released. “Showgirls” premiered when he was a middle schooler, a time when he was familiar with star Elizabeth Berkley only from the show “Saved By The Bell.” In “Showgirls,” which is essentially “All About Eve’ with skimpier costumes,...

This Batman producer reveals why Joker actors win Oscars

Michael Uslan can clearly see himself on a bench outside the offices of Columbia Pictures on the day of darkest despair for him and the Batman. It’s the early ’80s, and he and his producing partner Ben Melnicker had just run out of studios to pitch on Uslan’s dream of a new kind of Batman movie, one where Batman was a darker, more serious character than the campy caped crusader he’d been on TV in the ’60s (and at times in the comic books, too). “I had my head between my legs at this point — this...
