It was a weird week. Uptown and in Brooklyn, and in many other places somewhat more remote, life went on as normal. I know, because I visited those countries and saw this with my own eyes. What was weird was... Continue »

During our Unrequited Love in Film challenge, the inspiration for my "Yellow Rose of Texas" Dress was Elizabeth Taylor's character in Giant. While I was never a huge Elizabeth Taylor fan (I'm more a Debbie Reynolds sort of person), she was one of those celebrities that sort of seemed like they were immortal. Especially for me, as a child of the 1980s. I remember her being the living icon of "Old Hollywood." Like so many other child stars, she regretted losing her childhood to Hollywood (that was her bond with Michael Jackson). Lest we think that turning very young teenagers... Continue »

Publish quickly. The network rewards the first person to show up on the scene to describe what is going on, and it's important to get a version of that story underway promptly. Edit at leisure. The editing process takes time,... Continue »

Nathan Fillian says: If I got $300 million from the California Lottery, the first thing I would do is buy the rights to Firefly, make it on my own, and distribute it on the Internet. I can think of two reasons why we should revive Firefly. First: it was the most awesomest TV show that ever was or ever shall be. And I'll say it a billion times: that is not hyperbole. Secondly, let's face it: TV needs more Morena Baccarin, but that pixie haircut on 'V' is drawing unwanted attention to a freakishly long neck that was hidden behind... Continue »

Today was Six Apart's last day. It became Say Media this afternoon. And end of an amazing company, and a start of a new one. A colleague said Six Apart was sort of like college. We all worked and played together, and over the years, we started bumping into alum around the city working at new ventures. We are still a group, and are having a big alum gathering later in January to all come together. Current Six Aparters will be with Say Media, but many of those I have worked with, especially from the very early years, have already... Continue »
