Anderson Cooper Sighting

Anderson Cooper
“I Heart Anderson Cooper”

I was at the Time Warner Building in Columbus Circle to meet my brother in-law for dinner at Cafe Gray, an extremely classy and ridiculously overpriced trendy new restaurant (which, by the way, is excellent if you’re not picking up the check). As I got off the escalator on the second floor and started to wander around to the next upward escalator, CNN anchorman /reporter Anderson Cooper walked right by me!! Oh my god, he is so hot.

Match Point: That’s Hot!

Uber-Hotties Jonathan Rhys-Meyers and Scarlett Johansson Star in Match Point

If you’re as much of a movie freak as I am and you haven’t yet seen the newest Woody Allen flick, Match Point then you simply must run out and see it immediately because this movie fucking rocks! I went in not really knowing what the movie was about beyond a basic plot thread of “British Tennis Pro meets American Actress in London” and I was completely blown away! As with movies like The Crying Game, A History of Violence and Million Dollar Baby it is really to your advantage to see this film knowing as little in advance as possible because the surprises and plot twists are delicious. Go see it and then email me and tell me what you thought.

The Tribe Has Spoken! Survivor Guatemala Comes to an End

Outwit, Outplay, Outlast, Tolerate Being Eaten Alive By Mosquitos!

Another season of Survivor has come to an end and I’ll be sad until the new season starts in the spring, because frankly, Survivor is the shit. My favorite castaway to win the million dollars and title of Sole Survivor was openly gay Mormon good guy, Rafe Judkins. Rafe managed to strategize and sweet talk his way into the final four in an almost perfect combination of staying in integrity and voting out the people I just couldn’t stand anymore. Go Rafe!

I Heart Rafe

Sadly, Rafe was outwitted, outplayed and outlasted by sports announcer-jock-model Dani Boatwrigtht, a dark horse favorite to be sure. Dani easily won the million bucks by choosing to take Stephenie LaGrossa (from last season’s Survivor Palau) with her to the final two. Steph had become the sort of Rock Star of this go-round due to her ridiculous good looks, physical strength and underdog status from last season. The thing is, nobody wanted Stephenie to win because she’d already had a chance and blown it. So Dani won the million bucks by a landslide, and I’m okay with that, because she played a good game. I still think we’ll be seeing Rafe in possibly an upcoming season of The Amazing Race or as a talk show host on the Logo network, or something. Rafe is definitely one of my favorite Survivors, ever.

The Roof Is On Fire: Thoughts on Michael Moore’s Fahrenheit 9/11

Fahrenheit 911

This past weekend I went to see the Michael Moore film, Fahrenheit 9/11. Everyone needs to see this film. Parts of it are hilarious and parts of it are extremely difficult to watch, but it gives the typical not-super-political person, like me, a laser perspective into what’s going on in Iraq.

It’s pretty obvious that we shouldn’t be there and why all of this killing and Anti-American sentiment is so out of control. Of course it’s VERY anti-Bush, but going in with an open mind, I found there was very little Moore propaganda. 99% of what he represents is backed up by undeniable physical evidence or others “in the know” confirming Moore’s accusations.

It’s so important that everybody vote in the November election to get George Bush out of the White House and try to heal some of the heinous damage he’s done to this country and to repair the way the world sees us. I don’t know how we can survive four more years of his blatant disregard for humanity.

See Fahrenheit 9/11 and tell everyone you know to see it.
