Stop Bannon and his puppet Trump; Elect a Democratic Congress in 2018
Huffington Post - 21 days
Reality tells us the only way to ensure we stop Trump in the long run, unless he is impeached, is to elect a Democratic Congress in 2018. We can and should continue to march and protest but that must lead to organizing and electing Democrats. The first step is ensuring we keep the Virginia governorship and retake the governor's office in New Jersey in 2017. To do this we need to stop fighting each other and one way to do that is to stop demanding perfection in our candidates. That is what led to the election of Donald Trump. The Susan Sarandon's and Ralph Nader's of the world who by their stupidity and short-sightedness supported third party candidates must take some responsibility for Trump being in the White House. Sarandon had the unmitigated gall to tweet after the women's march telling Cher to keep protesting after she told everyone she thinks Clinton is more dangerous than Trump. For the next two years we need to get all Democrats and Independent voters who lean Democratic ...

What do Cher, Willow Smith, Susan Sarandon and Frances Bean Cobain have in common? Why, they’re all Marc Jacobs muses, of course.  Cobain is starring in Jacobs’ spring/summer 2017 campaign.

"I first met Frances Bean when she was 2 years old at a dinner with her mom (Courtney) and Anna Sui in 1994 at Bar Six in NYC. I have always wanted to work with Frances.

A Response: My Election Blame List
Huffington Post - 3 months
This article was written in response to a “Huffington Post” article by Max Weiss, which was in turn written as a response to a “Slate” article. The original “Slate” article was titled: “So We’re Still Blaming Jill Stein And James Comey, Huh?” and the Weiss response was titled: “Things I Blame For Hillary Clinton’s Loss, Ranked.” But the Weiss list was so far removed from my own feelings about the Clinton loss that I felt it was time to respond with my own blame list. It’s been a month since the election, so hopefully enough time has passed that Democrats can discuss what went so wrong. So here is my own list of the things I blame for the 2016 election loss, ranked. And I have to quote Weiss in saying (while he was blaming Bernie Sanders): “I know this is going to piss a lot of people off, but so be it.”   1-15.

Halloween is still a few weeks away, but Logo TV’s “Cocktails and Classics” is getting its spooky celebration on early with an Oct. 16 screening of “The Rocky Horror Picture Show.” In this clip from the show, host Michael Urie and journalist Michael Musto delve into the inherently queer appeal of the 1975 cult movie musical starring Tim Curry and Susan Sarandon. “This is before [the] internet, before a lot of visibility and rights in the LGBT movement,” Musto explains. “You watch it now and it’s kind of sweet, but this was just explosively daring.”  Now in its third season, “Cocktails and Classics” takes a look at some of the campiest, most iconic films in the queer canon.

Amy Schumer Wants You To Know She's Not Racist, But Has Room To Grow

Andy Cohen’s “Plead the Fifth” is the closest thing we have to a celebrity judge, jury and executioner ― in Wacha’s name we trust ― and on Monday’s episode of “Watch What Happens Live,” it was time for Amy Schumer to take the stand and defend her cringeworthy interview with Lena Dunham.  In the September interview, Dunham had told Schumer about her experience at the Met Gala earlier this year with New York Giants wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr., who she claimed refused to speak to her throughout the evening. After inquiring about the status of Season 5 of “Inside Amy Schumer” (the Fifth was pled) and who turned down appearing in the sketch “Last Fuckable Day” (Dianne Keaton and Susan Sarandon), Schumer talked to Cohen about Dunham’s tone-deaf comments, which the “Girls” creator later apologized for after the internet picked up its pitchforks.  “I think we all have room to learn,” she added. “I can’t think of anybody I’m racist against.
