Falling on My Face
Huffington Post - about 1 year
Pixabay/Lady Arty Being one of the only girls in the mass of neighborhood kids made me constantly compete with the boys and try to impress them. This led to frequent stupidity and pain. After seeing George Hamilton play motorcycle daredevil Evel Knievel at the movies, all of the boys -- and me, the girl they deigned to let join them -- decided to build a bike ramp. We wanted to reenact Knievel's scenes of bike-jumping glory. Craig, who was an Alpha Male before I knew what that meant, decided that he would build the ramp. He ordered us to scavenge the neighborhood to find the proper materials for his ramp. Only a Craig-approved ramp could showcase his superior bikemanship. And we, who were not Craig, could only exemplify his magnificence by participating with all of our awkward failure. My bike, a purple girly Schwinn, (a "Sting-Ray for Girls"), came with a flowered basket attached, a floral pattern on the banana seat, and streamers on the handlebars. I stripped it of all f ...

Huffington Post - over 3 years
Prince William and Kate Middleton, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, have finally announced the name of their royal son: Prince George Alexander Louis of Cambridge. And already, the world is in love with him. Prince George has many years to live up to the name carried by many a royal and many a celebrity, but we all know he will inevitably become a heart-throb in his own right. Here's a list of our favorite heart-throb George's of all time; it's only a matter of time before this newly admired George tops the list. George Jetson: Our cartoon George was ahead of his time jetting around in a flying car, working 1 hour a day, 2 days a week and having robots as housekeepers. What lady wouldn't have wanted to live such an A-list lifestyle? George Washington: Our historical George, he was a giant in his time. Towering at 6'2, he was much taller than the average colonial. Who wouldn't be attracted to the tallest man in the land who just happened to be the first leader of the Un ...

Hey! You! Yes, you. Sorry. Just trying to get your attention to impart an important warning here. For the next couple weeks, it's imperative all you good folks out there stay alert and keep your wits about you.

Jay Weston: Bill Stadiem's New Moneywood: Hollywood in Its Last Age of Excess Is a Scandalous, Fascinating Exposé
Huffington Post - about 4 years
I have casually known author William Stadiem for several decades, ever since he was restaurant critic of Los Angeles magazine and we shared meals together while reviewing the venues. I found him to be a charming, perceptive and close-lipped fellow who always wore a half-smile of incredulity as he wrote his notes in a little book. Now I know what he considered incredible... the entire Hollywood scene of which I was an active part and of which he was an astute silent observer. This is a guy with a Harvard JD/MBA who has written eight books, most of them best-sellers, about subjects as diverse as Frank Sinatra's valet, George Hamilton's women and Marilyn Monroe's maid. But I learned never to sell him short, for his book, Dear Senator, about the hidden black daughter of the virulent anti-segregationist Senator Strom Thurmond of South Carolina, set off a firestorm in the South that is still reverberating. Bill Stadien, author of the book. No, this is a journalist with ...

Northern Ireland bomb 'could have killed police officer's family'
Guardian (UK) - about 4 years
Belfast-based officer was about to take wife and two children out in car when he checked under vehicle and discovered device A foiled attempt to murder a police officer in Northern Ireland was carried out by dissident republicans who could also have killed his family, police said. The Belfast-based Police Service of Northern Ireland (PSNI) constable was about to take his wife and two young children out for Sunday lunch when he checked under his car outside his house in the city and discovered a viable device. Assistant Chief Constable George Hamilton said: "If that officer had not checked under his car we would have been looking at a murder or multiple murders." His car was parked at his home on the Upper Newtownards Road – a busy arterial route into the city centre. The scene, which was sealed off until late on Sunday night amid an extensive security and forensic operation, is close to PSNI headquarters at Knock and the Northern Ireland assembly at Stormont.

Actress Alana Stewart Talks Spirituality And Staying Vibrant At 67
Huffington Post - about 4 years
Former model and talk-show host Alana Stewart, 67, has recently published a new memoir, "Rearview Mirror." In it, Stewart, who was married to actor George Hamilton and singer Rod Stewart -- both of whom she later divorced -- describes a childhood of poverty in Texas, her life-changing move to New York and California to model, and her close friendship with the late Farrah Fawcett. We recently had the opportunity to chat with Stewart about her life, spirituality and staying vibrant at age 67. Why write "Rearview Mirror" now? I hope that anyone who reads it takes away something useful. I wanted to write it now. I have gone through so many challenges and difficult experiences. When people share the tools they've used to get through these experiences, it can be very helpful. I've been in 12-step programs for many years and this started me on my healing path as I heard others share their stories. It helps me so much and helps me have a place to go to share my own pain.

Dr. Franklin Ruehl, Ph.D.: Were 2 Screen Bombshells Named Barbara Under A Curse?
Huffington Post - about 4 years
Is it conceivable that a pair of movie sirens named Barbara were under a deadly curse? Both Barbara Nichols and Barbara Payton appeared in horror and sci-fi films, and died tragic,premature deaths, as did a handful of other such actresses. Were nefarious forces possibly enraged by their appearances in projects which touched upon the sacred subject matter of their shadowy domain? Please consider the following evidence for these two vixens: - Barbara Nichols (1929-1976): This curvaceous blonde knockout with an unforgettable Brooklynese accent (born Barbara Nickerauer) encountered alien cloners in "The Human Duplicators"(1965). An extraterrestrial scientist, Kolos (Richard Kiel, before his archetypal role as "Jaws" in the 007 series), was engaged in a nefarious plot to substitute key humans with bionic replicas, such as noted scientist Dr. Vaughn Dornheimer (portrayed by George Macready, seen in many sci-fi and horror efforts, such as 1944's "Soul of a Monster").

Alana Stewart: How I Survived My Divorce From Rod Stewart
Huffington Post - about 4 years
When Rod and I broke up, I thought my world was coming to an end. I was totally devastated and I had no idea how to pick up the pieces of my broken heart. Divorce is never easy, but it's even more painful when you find out your husband is having an affair with a beautiful model fifteen years younger than you. I had always been so certain that we were forever, that nothing could ever come between us. I can't make Rod out to be the total villain and me the innocent victim, even though he was the one having the affair (and others that I would come to find out about as well). The last couple of years our marriage had started to deteriorate from the madly in love couple who had everything we could possibly want to the reality of having three young children and a wife who couldn't keep up with the rock-and-roll lifestyle anymore. There was plenty of blame to go around. Between his touring and the recording, playing soccer and the late nights out with the boys, I started to feel t ...

'The Perks of Being a Wallflower' review
San Francisco Chronicle - over 4 years
'The Perks of Being a Wallflower' review Certain types of films now follow certain narrative conventions so closely, so slavishly, that we think we know what's coming around every bend. [...] when something different hits us, the impact leaves a bruise. In a series of letters narrated to an unknown friend, Charlie describes a rocky start to high school. [...] he stumbles into a tribe of offbeat seniors, and the movie skids off the usual script into a province rich with joy and rutted with danger: sex, drugs, crushes. Watson - despite a shaky American accent - has a convincing, translucent fragility about her, and anyone who caught Miller's ghoulish turn as a way-too-pretty mass killer in "We Need to Talk About Kevin" might be shocked by the warmth and woundedness he exhibits here. Lerman, who made such a charming George Hamilton facsimile in "My One and Only," subdues his natural ebullience until it begins to resemble an introvert's watchful gleam; when the m ...

Howard Sherman: 'Fame,' 'Celebrity,' 'Stardom' and Other Dirty Words
Huffington Post - over 4 years
Every January, the media run features on how to lose those holiday pounds. As schools let out for the summer, the media share warnings about damage from the sun and showcase the newest sunscreens. In Thanksgiving, turkey tips abound. For theater, September reveals two variants of its seasonal press staple, either "Stars Bring Their Glamour To The Stage," or, alternately, "Shortage of Star Names Spells Soft Season Start." Indeed, the same theme may reappear for the spring season and, depending upon summer theater programming, it may manage a third appearance. But whether stars are present or not, they're the lede, and the headline. The arrival of these perennial stories is invariably accompanied by grousing in the theatre community about the impact of stars on theatre, Broadway in particular, except from those who've managed to secure their services. But this isn't solely a Broadway issue, because as theaters -- commercial and not-for-profit, touring and resident -- strug ...

Zaki Hasan: The Vice Presidential Poison Pill?
Huffington Post - over 4 years
Okay, things just got real. With his selection of Wisconsin congressman Paul Ryan to join him on the Republican ticket as his nominee for vice president, Mitt Romney has given both the conservative right and the liberal left a renewed reason to turn out to the polls. What this pick most clearly demonstrates to me is the deficit the former Massachusetts governor continues to hold with the GOP's base, who've long lionized Ryan -- a self-professed Ayn Rand aficionado who rose to prominence on the back of his "Path to Prosperity" budget plan that euphemistically re-defines "prosperity" as more tax cuts for the wealthiest, arriving there by demolishing cherished safety net programs like Medicare and Medicaid. The uphill climb Romney's always faced, even as the presumptive Republican nominee practically from the moment his '08 bid ended, is the perception that he's sort of the George Hamilton of presidential contenders, running because, well, why not. Sure, he doesn't really s ...
