Buy the House That Jack Black Built

Buy the House That Jack Black Built

Who knew that comedic genius Jack Black had such good taste in architecture and design? The 1958 home that he and his wife, Tanya Haden, remodeled from top to bottom in 2006 is now on the market for  $2,899,000. That’s actually quite the reasonable price considering the home’s size, architectural integrity and location, just off Mulholland…

Review: Dolphin Tale 2

Dolphin Tale 2 is sure to make a big splash with audiences–the fact that it shows wholesome, smart, thoughtful teens, rather than the f-bombing, sex crazed, post apocalyptical warriors is enough to make it praiseworthy in my book. But, surprisingly enough, there’s more to this film, inspired by real life happenings at Florida’s Clearwater Marine Aquarium, than…

Fox's Utopia

I admit: I bit. The premise of a group of 15 people from all walks of life living together for a year on mostly undeveloped land does sound intriguing. But after watching the entire two hour premiere of Fox’s new reality series Utopia ($50 million in the making) I have to say I’m done. I watched it…

Ooh La Bra Images

Ooh La Bra!

Okay, so you’re at an outdoor barbecue wearing a strapless maxi dress, you accidentally step on the hem of said dress, and much to your horror (and the male guests’ delight), your bodice suddenly slides down to your waist, exposing your goods to countless beholders. If this hasn’t yet happened to you, as it has to me,…

The Skeleton Twins

Attention everyone! The Oscar race officially begins with the release of the wonderfully poignant The Skeleton Twins. You heard it here first. Knowing that this tender movie stars Kristen Wiig and Bill Hader as complicated twins, with a little Luke Wilson and Ty Burrell thrown in on the side, you might think this dark “dramady” would…

Lisa Emmy Gift Show with Hana Rago

The Best of the Emmy Gift Suites

Every year prior to the major awards shows (Oscars, Golden Globes, Grammys, Emmys) savvy PR and marketing companies hold lavish gifting suites in posh hotels. You might guess they’re full of top designer swag — Gucci, Prada, Cartier, etc. — but you’d be wrong. Those huge brands have to pay A-List stars millions of dollars to…

LifeofCrime

Life of Crime

This is a classic Elmore Leonard tale, adapted from his novel The Switch. Full of hardened but sympathetic criminals, crazy eccentrics, corrupt businessmen, ambivalent lovers and dames of distinction, you’ll find Life of Crime a darkly amusing diversion. The casting is smart and intriguing. We have Tim Robbins (when did he become John Voight?) as…

Jimmy Kimmel Lists Home With Amazing Taste (Who Knew?)

When you think of a home fit for talk show host Jimmy Kimmel, you might imagine the ultimate party pad with a state-of-the-art media room, beer tap, and perhaps a trampoline in the back yard, leftover from his Comedy Central The Man Show days. What you probably wouldn’t imagine is an uber-cool Hollywood Regency style…

Guardians of the Galaxy

Make way for the next big Super Hero franchise, Guardians of the Galaxy will blast its way into your heart and stay there — for at least three more episodes, according to moi. Who can resist a sassy super raccoon (voiced by Bradley Cooper), a powerful talking tree (Vin Diesel), a green, not blue super heroine (Zoe…

Saving Face With SoniClear

One of the best products I was introduced to at GBK’s Emmy gift lounge is the brand new SoniClear from Michael Todd True Organics, “The world’s first anti-microbial sonic cleansing system.” I know, you’re probably already cleaning your face with that other “sonic” skin care device, and you probably love the effect it has on your…
