Bob Sinclar: The Pied Piper of Paris Nightlife

Bob Sinclar: The Pied Piper of Paris Nightlife

I’ve spent more nights than I can count (and certainly more than I can remember) dancing the night away in any number of those dim, uniquely Parisian bars that are short on light and long on the kind of fun that goes on past dawn. And more often than not, the rhythmic hooks of Bob...

Mindy Kaling’s “Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me (And Other Concerns)”

Some might say that I’m on the late train here, but I have recently fallen madly in love with audiobooks. And when I say ‘in love’, I really mean obsessed! As a writer I have always had a certain reverence for the written word, but with the amount of time I spend in my car...

San Francisco, Cate Blanchett Shine in Woody Allen’s ‘Blue Jasmine’

By Duane Wells Place has always played a significant role in Woody Allen movies, but this has been particularly so in a string of Allen’s most recent films, many of which have enjoyed increasing levels of critical and commercial success.

Bernhoft: Giving Voice to Norwegian Soul

Bernhoft: Giving Voice to Norwegian Soul

  In a week when everyone seemed to be buzzing about Justin Timberlake, I found myself rapt by the intricately, layered sounds of Bernhoft, the Norwegian retro-soul sensation who is currently barnstorming across North America igniting venues with his uniquely inspired blend of socially conscious musings and quirkily groovalicious beats. He may not yet be...
On a Power Trip with Jackie Collins

On a Power Trip with Jackie Collins

There are days when even I think I’ve picked a pretty good gig in this life, and this is definitely one of those days. As I sit down to write this week’s blog, I am contemplating what a journey life can be. It really is sort of a—well, trip, when you think about it. When...
Do You Know The Way To Ojai?

Do You Know The Way To Ojai?

Do you know the way to Ojai? Robert Pattinson and Reese Witherspoon do. Ojai might only be about 85 miles outside of Los Angeles, but it couldn’t be more different from its glitzy Tinseltown neighbor.  While Los Angeles is a classic example of urban sprawl, tiny Ojai, California (pop: 7,862) is the epitome of small...
Beloved: The Romance of Paris

Beloved: The Romance of Paris

Director Christophe Honoré’s new film celebrates Paris and the complexities of l’amour.  Paris and romance just go together. That is undeniable. In fact, based upon personal experience, I would go so far as to say that “falling in love in Paris” should make it onto everyone’s bucket list, because the City of Lights provides the...

Iron Horse Vineyards …The Wine of Presidents, Kings, Queens and Popes

By Duane Wells If you’ve ever been the sort to turn up your nose to sparkling wines or consider yourself an exclusive devotee of French Champagnes, then I pray you give Iron Horse wines a chance to turn everything you thought you knew so consummately well on its ear. A few months back, I was...

If you’ve been to Sonoma then you probably already know that the folks in this corner of America have a peculiarly familiar, almost European relationship with food (and if you didn’t already know, now you do!). At every turn in this slice of Northern California, staggeringly fresh food prepared with elegant simplicity is as much...
VIP Lounge: Johnny Weir

VIP Lounge: Johnny Weir

When I met Johnny Weir at a photo shoot in Hollywood, he wasn’t at all what I expected—a revelation that the well traveled, two-time Olympian has become all too accustomed to hearing. He was smaller than I had imagined, but then again most celebrities are. His voice was neither boisterous nor demanding, but instead disarmingly...

Inside The Buzziest Hollywood Academy Award Parties On Oscar Night!

While for the rest of the world the most wonderful time of year may fall somewhere between Thanksgiving and December 31, in Hollywood there is no more glittering space of time than the weeks leading up to the Academy Awards.

Oscar Predictions 2012: Who Do You Think Deserves To Win?

Oscar Predictions 2012: Who Do You Think Deserves To Win?

In general, I look forward to the Super Bowl for two reasons: (1) The entertainment –I am all about the commercials, the halftime show and the national anthem — and (2) because I know that when the Super Bowl is over, the Oscars are just around the corner. What can I say? The Academy Awards...

The 10 Hottest Celebrity Restaurants

Everyone seems to be obsessed with food these days. Either we’re talking about where to eat and marveling at a particular chef’s culinary skills or we’re talking about what not to eat and the latest fad diet. It’s just food…food…food… all the time.
