Whit Stillman’s ‘Metropolitan’ is like watching National Geographic for me.

You know what’s entertaining as hell? Newsweek writer Allison Samuels being dinged by the blogosphere for casting judgment on Angelina and Brad’s black hair management skills. Dear Allison Samuels, if you BELIEVE the issue of self-esteem is so vital for black children, I think it might be helpful if you also educate black parents about the need to maintain self-esteem for their children, as well.

I’m writing in a candidate for Mayor next Tuesday. Bloomberg is too much of a plutocrat and Bill Thompson doesn’t really want to be mayor; he just wants to be in politics.

Giuliani is an amoralistic, opportunistic bottom-feeder. I’m not going to say anything about Bloomberg, but you sleep with the dog, you wake up with fleas.

You can give me a free trip anytime. I do not have any media overlords to displease if I take a free trip to somewhere fun or exotic for a weekend.
I love massages and fruity cocktails with paper umbrellas. The smell of rum punch makes me swoon! Crunching sand between my toes is better than sex for me. And staying out all night on the Strip is my idea of heaven. Stop bothering with those freelancers who write for Newsweek and the Times. I’m your woman for a no-holds barred good time on your dime.
Favorite answer regarding former President George H.W. Bush: ‘He’s from Texas, he’s gotta be right.’
For me, watching the parents in the interviews (with the sound off) was looking into a void of nothingness. Empty, grasping, stupid, shallow people who don’t mind their child vomiting on television (twice) if it furthers their goal of achieving any kind of fame, even the desultory kind. I can’t even be sad anymore that the parents are such simpletons who breeded; just happy that it’s not me taking that sleazy ride on the fame express.
