All Things Pumpkin At Trader Joe's


One day last week I stopped by Trader Joe's to pick up a few things and discovered that much of their Autumn specialty foods were already on the shelves, as well as the festive fall seasonal displays.

Now if any of you know me, you know two things:

1) I LOOOOOOOOOOOOOVE Autumn!
2) I love all things PUMPKIN.

Photographer: Herb Ritts - L.A. Style - And His Strong Signature Of Sensuality


The first time I became aware of Herb Ritts was back in the early 90's, when he photographed Mark Wahlberg for the Calvin Klein underwear ad campaign. Do you remember these pictures?...


I mean, come on...who didn't experience titillation upon seeing these ads? I bet the stock market in Calvin Klein underwear rose sky high (no pun intended) soon after these ads were released. Many of the gay men I knew, not only wanted them for themselves, but they also secretly hoped that each package of underwear came with its very own Mark Wahlberg - kind of like getting a really great prize in a box of Cracker Jack.

Photographer: George Hurrell's Hollywood Glamour Portraits


I just recently discovered the book, George Hurrell's Hollywood - Glamour Portraits, and was in awe!

In the past I had seen several of his photographs in various photography books, especially books that highlighted the work of Hollywood photographers, because as you all know...I love, adore and worship all things vintage Hollywood.

And as you also know, I have a fetish for black and white photography.

As My Two Computers Died, Another Was Born


Can you believe it?

Not one, but BOTH my computers passed away within three days of each other.

First, my 6-year old desktop died. And when I say died, it suddenly (without any warning of ever being even remotely sick) STOPPED BREATHING in the middle of the day.

I was utterly devastated.
