Dinner at a white linen restaurant on Valentine’s Day too cliché? Why not set sail with your sweetheart?

Ways for Extroverts to Learn How to Chill

I self-identify as an extrovert and most people in my life would concur. Living out loud, colorful, social butterfly with wings spread. I was called “precocious” as a child. An old soul, wise beyond my years, with an extensive vocabulary that surprised the adults around me. My mother used to say that I began talking at six months and never stopped. Reflecting back, I saw myself as “little Shirley Temple, tap-dancing for attention and to maintain approval,” which I now view as the onset of co-...

The Horror and the Humor in Liz Phair's 'Horror Stories'

"I'm only twenty-six years old and I've known three friends who killed themselves, a dozen girls with eating disorders, seven guys who went to rehab, and more people that I can count who've been sexually assaulted and never talk about it. I want to hear the truth." (Liz Phair - Horror Stories, p. 115) In 1993, 26-year -old Liz Phair released Exile in Guyville, a starkly frank and spectacularly self-assured album that eventually went gold, becoming Matador Records' most successful release t...

Film Review: ‘Dilili in Paris’

Dilili is an adorable, charmingly unconventional heroine: a 6-year-old Kanak girl from New Caledonia who dresses like Shirley Temple and speaks like royalty. And Paris, glittering with elegant couture and a shiny new Eiffel Tower, never looked more splendid than it did around the turn of the 20th century, when Michel Ocelot’s new computer-animated feature […]

In end of 20th Century Fox, a new era dawns for Hollywood

NEW YORK (AP) — The Fox Studio backlot, first built in 1926 on a Culver City ranch in Los Angeles, was enormous. Before much of it was sold off in the 1960s, it was four times the size of its current, and still huge, 53 acres. Shirley Temple’s bungalow still sits on the lot, as […]

The Academy’s biggest oversights and most controversial choices from nine decades of ceremoniesThe Oscars were first held 90 years ago this May, and to date, no animated feature has won the Oscar for best picture.

Having been nominated solely for a best music score award at the 10th Academy Awards in 1938, Disney’s groundbreaking gem made a return appearance at the next Oscar ceremony, where Shirley Te...

Kamala Harris is "bluntly putting down markers on nuanced topics to help inoculate her from false critiques with answers that also illuminate how she views her own identity."

That's from Politico, "Why Kamala Harris is glad people are asking if she's black enough/The candidate is looking to head off a problem that dogged Barack Obama" by Christopher Cadelago.First, I don't believe that Politico knows that Harris is "glad." Also, I wouldn't use the word "dogged" with Barack Obama, given that he was dogged with the question of the literal eating of dogs.But what I want to do is count the metaphors in the quote I put in the title:1. bluntly — The adjective leads us to t...

Easy Pro Tips To Make Your Cheap Halloween Wig Look Amazing

"There is darkness in 'Child Star,' of course. The passage that I clung to as a child, like a favored, glamorous nightmare..."

"... was about a woman whose daughter died the hour Shirley [Temple] was born. In 1939, the woman tried to assassinate Shirley while she was singing 'Silent Night' on a live radio show, under the logic that the star had swiped her daughter’s soul and shooting her would unleash it. 'The tale seemed understandable to me,' Temple writes. When I first read 'Child Star,' perched by the cold cuts at one of my sister’s swim meets, I loved the idea that Shirley Temple’s soul was endlessly transferrable,...

Rose Marie, Jon and Kenny

In The Wall Street Journal this week, I interviewed Rose Marie (go here), who was a singing star before Shirley Temple was born. Best known now as Sally Rogers on The Dick Van Dyke Show, Rose Marie was a pal of Al Capone and Bugsy Siegel, and she was married to Bobby Guy, Bing Crosby's trumpeter. She is one of the last remaining pre-World War II singers with recorded hits. Interviewing her was like take a time machine back to another era. Fortunately for you Rose Marie is the subject of an e...
