"... interpretation! — a frisky wild animal..."

Some of you are reading Tom Wolfe's "Bonfire of the Vanities" along with me. In the "Bonfire" project, here on the blog, I select a few consecutive sentences as I go along and offer them up for discussion. Please concentrate on the text. It's fine to bring in the context of the book, but give a spoiler alert if you're going beyond the chapter under discussion.So let me give you this, from Kindle Location 1624:Do you tell the police that Mrs. Arthur Ruskin of Fifth Avenue and Mr. Sherman McCoy of...

Visit to Claire Maziarczyk’s Studio

This past Sunday, I had the good fortune of making a return trip to paste paper artisan Claire Maziarczyk‘s studio. My last visit was nearly ten years ago! Claire posted on the Book Arts Listserv that she was downsizing and was looking to sell not only her fabulous paste papers, but also supplies and equipment. I made the journey with a few of my Book Arts Guild of Vermont cohorts so the trip didn’t seem as long as the 3.5+ hours it took for us to get there. Claire fed us lunch, which was awesom...

CBGB’s Heyday: Watch The Ramones, The Dead Boys, Bad Brains, Talking Heads & Blondie Perform Live (1974-1982)

There are, I guess, still many things people can do these days to tap into the legacy of CBGB, but I wouldn’t recommend going near most of them. The merchandising empire (do, however, new parents, get your tot a CBGB bib and onesie); the “thuddingly banal” 2013 film version, which… the less said about it the better; yes, and CBGB, the restaurant, in the Newark Airport Terminal C—proceed at your own risk. We must sadly also mention this past summer’s “Potemkin village from hell,” a pop-up...

Salzburg: Our favorite free (and cheap) things to do

The hills may be alive with The Sound of Music in Salzburg, but there’s plenty to do that doesn’t involve Mozart and the Von Trapp family.

4 Things That Have Made My Adult Life Significantly Better

Get on my levellllll I have been thinking a lot about adulting and adulthood in the last couple of weeks since the new year. I wrote last time about how we're better adults than we give ourselves credit for, but I was thinking in the recent weeks about the misconceptions I had about adulthood, or the things I thought I would never do as an adult that I am 100% on board with now. A lot of things that adults did mystified me when I was in my late teens and my early twenties, but now, as a ripe ol...

Sundance Film Review: ‘Judy & Punch’

Though Sundance is always awash in empowerment tales both fictive and non, this year the climate of political discord seems to have inspired an even larger batch than usual, particularly those that address misogyny. And there’s unlikely to be another such title in 2019 that thinks so far outside the creative box to score its […]

Michelle Monaghan is a Determined Attorney in Trailer for 'Saint Judy'

Comment on cosmopolitan by Judy

Instead of a lime or lemon peel, I float a large, frozen cranberry in my Cosmos. Different. I keep a bag in the freezer for just this purpose! I use a splash of cranberry juice (a cap-full).

Reviewing my 2018 Goals and Plans

It’s January 3rd and I already feel behind on 2019. Most of the bloggers somehow managed to write their year-end recaps at the end of year. On the positive side, I created my 2018 Goals and Plans in February. In comparison, I’m doing quite well. In last year’s article, I listed a bunch of quick excuses why I didn’t accomplish as much as I wanted in 2017. I was the main care-giver for a 3 and 4 year old. I spent a lot of time reading politics. I was being sued for defamation, which can be a ...

The Story of Family

    The history of my family started back before any of us were born, back before history was recorded, before ink and pen, somewhere amongst a woman's arms and a man's kiss, somewhere in the middle of a heart and soul. My father's and my mother's parents came from the Azores, the islands off of Portugal.         The history of my family took place sailing across the ocean, traveling and working across the fields, buying farmland, and prayer. I never thought about it before, but the long row o...

What Ever Happened To The Stars Of Love Actually?

It's that time of year: The holidays are here. Along with good tidings and cheer comes a list of must-haves. On that list — for most people — is a required viewing of Love Actually. Whether you love it or hate it, you know it's true.Love Actually came out in 2003 — that's 13 years ago — and in the time since, the movie has come to be associated with everything warm, fuzzy, and British. Who doesn't love watching Hugh Grant dance to "Jump For My Love"? Doesn't everyone love it when that little gi...

I Rewatched Love Actually 15 Years Later & It's Still The Worst

Love Actually turned 15 this year, so while I appreciate this review is a little tardy, I was curious to see if it had aged better than I have.On occasion, rewatching a 'classic' with fresh eyes can be elucidating (although my advice is to leave the DVDs of Pretty Woman and The Notebook to languish in the bargain bin at WH Smith along with Davina’s Toned in 10). In this case, the second viewing (alone in bed with a bowl of tiramisu and the electric blanket cranked up to 'gates of hell') was mos...

Sacha's Photos of Our Stay in Seattle

    There is a connection between people who love one another that runs deeper than time and space, a bond that unites in an unseen world that intertwines memories, moments collected unknowingly, the essences of love that cannot be defined by words.  I am holding on to that invisible cord that wraps around me with my family and friends. Leaving is never easy. Goodbyes trigger the space that I know will be between us, the ache of senses that go unfilled. That space that I must put back into the ...
