Burning Man 2010 Festival – The Fun Begins

Did you miss me? Oh yes you did, don’t lie. I missed you too. But I’m back now so stop crying. Seriously, stop crying. It’s not pretty. Burning Man 2010 was probably one of the best experiences of my life thus far. And one of the worst. When I look back on my time in the Black Rock Desert at Burning Man 2010, there are a few things that will be in the forefront of all my memories – a million lights, blisters, colors, and bruises. Oh, and sand; lots and lots of sand. I’m not even really sure where to start. It’s not an easy thing to describe a place such...

Labor Day Weekend – Have Fun But Don’t Be Dumb

It’s Labor Day weekend, marking the unofficial end of summer. Time to go back to school; time to bring out the sweaters. Time to start thinking about the Holidays. While you’re having your last bit of summer fun, please be responsible and don’t act like an idiot. It’s all fun and games until someone loses an eye. Or their life. In 2008 Labor Day was only a hair’s-breath behind the 4th of July in fatal accidents due to an intoxicated driver. From 1998 to 2008, an average of 503 people died annually during Labor Day weekend, 40% of those deaths were due to drunk...

Not All Celebrity ‘Happily Ever Afters’ Involve Marriage

When Susan Sarandon and Tim Robbins split last December after 23 years, I must admit, my views of true love were a bit shattered; I often sited them has an example of a happy unmarried couple when people bugged me about my long-term unmarried relationship. Thankfully, there are a handful of other successful celebrity relationships which don’t involve marriage that I can look up to. Goldie Hawn and Kurt Russell – 1983 – one son Russell on marriage: “We talked about it a lot. And the bottom line of it was, neither one of us really cared in that regard.” Image Source Sam...

Celebrity Wax Figures – A Whole New Level Of Creepy

Wax figures are creepy – kinda cool, but really creepy. And it really doesn’t help matters when the wax figure is poorly made and makes the person after whom it was designed look like downright freaky. Pop Crunch came up with a great list of 10 of the creepiest celebrity wax figures. I hope they don’t scare you too much. 10. Julia Roberts Ok, Julia Roberts is doe-eyed and shows all her pearly whites when she smiles. In real life, that looks really good. In wax, not so much. Someone should’ve told the artist who made the wax replica above that orange is not really a...

Oh Burning Man! Oh Burning Man! So Excited To Meet Thee!

Well I’m off to Burning Man!! Fingers crossed I’ll come back alive. Oh relax, I’m just joking. I’m sure everything will be fine. The Black Rock Desert is an arid region in the northern Nevada section of the Great Basin with a lakebed that is a dry remnant of Pleistocene Lake Lahontan. The region is notable for its paleogeologic features, as an area of 19th-century Emigrant Trails to California, and as a venue for rocketry and land speed records (Mach 1.02 in 1997). The Black Rock Desert region is in northwestern Nevada and the northwestern Great Basin. The playa extends...

Drew Barrymore Almost Got Medieval On Some Reporter Chick’s Ass

I like Drew Barrymore like I like a lot of people – sometimes she’s really cool and fun to hang with, then other times she’s just annoying. At this precise moment, however, I like Drew Barrymore. A lot. Although I’m not constantly bombarded by fans and paparazzi (not daily, anyway), I imagine that hearing the same questions from reporters over and over again can get pretty friggin’ irritating. And apparently, being interviewed by a reporter who won’t let go of the past makes Drew Barrymore want to get violent. Drew Barrymore says she’s comfortable discussing...

Impressionist Paintings And Food From Burma – Happy Birthday To Me!

Why yes, I did have a good birthday today. Thanks for asking! The day started like any other day – except for the chocolate cupcake for breakfast, of course. By 10:15am my step-dad and I, along with a couple of his friends, were in San Francisco at the De Young Museum for their current special exhibit, Birth of Impressionism: Masterpieces From The Musee d’Orsay. I really enjoyed it. One of my favorite things about art is that each piece elicits a different response from different people, and I really get a kick out of eavesdropping on people around me and listening to what...

Rod Blagojevich Verdict – Basically An Acquittal

Remember on the last season of Celebrity Apprentice how Rod Blagojevich took every chance he could to tell someone – anyone! – how innocent he was and that he never lied and that they shouldn’t believe the hype? Yeah, it drove me bonkers, too. I mean, when someone is that defensive, there comes a point when you ask just who they’re trying to convince. Hopefully today’s Blagojevich verdict will put an end to the ex-governor’s rantings of innocence. Just sayin’. Rod Blagojevich was found guilty on just one of 24 counts – making false statements to a federal agent....
