A: Because that's where all the goddamned beautiful people are!

Q: Why does Conan have to move to LA?
conan buys house on people.com
And, please tell me that Carson isn't going to bring his shit, snoozy, Z-list celeb, bullshit shit to an earlier hour. I feel so much better at night knowing that I'm sleeping when he's on, as to avoid ever having to share my valuable television time with his...shit. (Who knew I had such strong feelings about Carson Daly? Or Conan?)

And, to think,
he used to be so hot on TRL.

Some Culture: Kara Walker at the Whitney Museum of American Art

Of all of the things I saw on my trip to the Whit this weekend with Brooklyn's favorite mommies, Ingrid and Liz (and beautiful happy baby Clyde), I loved a stone bench with all of these fantastic, simple, punctuation-less statements carved into it. From a quick Google search it looks like the artist may be Jenny Holzer. I found a couple of lists of her "truisms" from some very non-respectable looking sites like this and that but I'll take what I can get (the one that sticks out in my head from the museum: "murder has its sexual side"). I wish I could tell you more about her, but this space isn't for such journalistic endeavours such as those with research and facts, it's a blog with my thoughts and links.

The other thing I saw that I loved was what we originally intended to see, an exhibit from New York-based artist
Kara Walker. She creates black paper cut-outs of antebellum-era people to comment on race, gender, sexuality and class from then through now. It was striking and intense while whimsical and at first breath reminded me of what Disney's telling of a pre-Civil War plantation complete with violence, rape, and slavery might look like. Below is a picture to give you a feel of how well the work was presented. I think "hung" is the proper museum way of saying it, but that makes me think more of the back pages of HX.

More photos.

Lindsay Lohan's Candid Interview - Audio on Perez, Is She Actually Well?!?

Hello friends, near and far -

I know you've probably read about it on People.com or even seen and heard it on PerezHilton.com, but Lindsay called in a Las Vegas radio show this morning and spoke so openly and maturely about her life. It really struck me as such a contrast to the one Britney Spears radio call-in to Ryan Seacrest's morning show back when her latest (and awesome!) record was released.

The highlight that Perez missed in his blog entry?
***Lindsay Lohan's favorite fast food? McDonald's!*** I wonder what she likes to order? I bet Happy Meals. I can see her liking the little toys. Any guesses?

Travel well,

P.S. While listening to the clip of Mark and Mercedes in the Morning, it made me nostalgic for my old days as a morning show host. I wonder if they had any idea the kind of attention this was going to get.

Poll: What Movie? Charlie vs. Sweeny vs. Your Entertainment Buck

In honor of two movies that have the potential to big HUGE and the potential to be NOT in the upcoming holiday (as in next) weekend...what are you going to see? Tom and Julia in Charlie Wilson's War, perhaps? Mister Depp and Ms. Bonham Carter in Sweeney Todd? One of the many other worthy movies in theaters? Tell me!
