Step Right Up To Joe Coleman's Painted Freak Show
Huffington Post - over 2 years
When artist Joe Coleman lost his mother, he honored her legacy with what he referred to in an interview as a "pretty intense funeral ritual."  The performance, inspired by sideshow tradition, took place at an art theater, the Boston Film and Video Arts Foundation. Audience members stared at a paper screen plastered with projections of old 1950s pornographic films and images. "Projected on that screen were porno images of the sexual act -- the act that created me," Coleman explained. "So it was sort of like the big bang, theory of creation." Even bigger of a bang occurred moments later, when Coleman burst through the screen, hanging upside down on a harness, and then exploded himself in mid-air above the audience. "The harness is like the umbilical cord. My wife at the time cut the harness, which is what the wife does, with the connection to the mother." To conclude the ritual, there were rats. "I bit the heads off these two mice that were named mommy and daddy. Mommy's head...

The Most Famous Blondes Of All Time
Huffington Post - over 2 years
Since Hollywood's Golden Era, blondes have been held in high regard. The striking and sexy hair color helped to propel the careers of famous (but not true) blondes such as Marilyn Monroe and Jean Harlow. And it's become the signature look for today's hottest actresses and entertainers, including Beyoncé, Gwen Stefani and Jennifer Lawrence. Even Kim Kardashian experimented with a short-lived bleach blonde hairdo.  We asked our Facebook and Twitter followers to nominate their picks for the most famous blondes of all time -- both natural and faux. Ms. Monroe was an obvious choice, but we got all nostalgic when style icons like Dolly Parton and Anna Nicole Smith were name-dropped. Check out our list below, and tell us if we've missed anyone in the comments section.  Also On HuffPost: (function(){var src_url="https://spshared.5min.com/Scripts/PlayerSeed.js?playList=518751391&height=&width=100&sid=577&origin=SOLR&videoGroupID=155847&relatedNumOfResults...

25 Years Ago Thurs, May 2, 1990 • A Big Attraction – Milaca Police Chief Dennis Johnson had a lot to smile about at Sunday’s Expo IV when his booth promoted the Hooked on Fishing and DARE anti-drug programs drew a large response from the crowd. Hooked on Fishing is geared to elementary students while DARE is for fifth graders. • Amnesty Days Bring Tires Rolling In By The Thousands – The first of two tire amnesty weekends held this past Friday and Saturday apparently was successful as it is estimated between 12,000 and 15,000 tires were brought to the Mille Lacs County Highway Department office in Milaca.

Justin Bieber and Rob Ford Walk Into a Canadian Bar
Huffington Post - about 4 years
"The opposite of love is not hate, it's indifference." - Elie Wiesel Personally, I'm not a big fan of either -- Bieber and Ford that is. Don't get me wrong, I'm not judging them or gossiping about them or condemning them. That's not Canadian. I just don't care about them. Although I don't actually know them personally, everything I've seen and read leads me to simply write these two off. I have no problem doing that. After all, I don't judge, I don't gossip, and I certainly don't condemn. That's just not Canadian. But when I completely lose respect for someone -- BOOM -- they don't exist anymore. We Canadians pride ourselves on not being as easily wound up as our big brother to the South. So maybe it's a Canadian thing -- writing people off. Maybe the pejorative, hipster phrase "whatever" was originally "whatever eh"? You see, Canadians have a long history of national pridelessness. We're content with bronze. (Unless it's hockey!) We don't take ourselves too seriously and we ce...

Courtney Stodden Talks About Sex With Doug Hutchison, And It's Totally TMI
Huffington Post - about 4 years
Courtney Stodden offered up a bit too much information when she delved into details about her former sex life with estranged husband Doug Hutchison. "Our sex was good," Stodden told TooFab about her intimate moments with Hutchison, 53, whom she married in 2011 when she was just 16 years old. "I’m not going to lie, but I’m a young girl who wants to experience sex of all kinds and he’s an older man and he’s slowing down a little bit. I just wanted more sex." The 19-year-old split from the former "Lost" actor earlier this month -- after two and a half years together, some bizarre interviews and a stint on VH1's "Couples Therapy." Their wedded bliss ended when she went across the pond to join the "Celebrity Big Brother U.K." house and realized her feelings for her hubby had changed. "I was missing him, but not intimately," she told E! News in a recent interview. "I couldn't neglect my desires and wanting to embrace my independence and my freedom. ... I am happy and I am excited....

Priyanka Chopra, The New Guess Girl, 'Honored' To Be Brand's First Indian Model
Huffington Post - over 4 years
Say hello to the new Guess girl: Priyanka Chopra. The Bollywood star and former Miss World has been tapped by the brand to front its Holiday 2013 campaign, making Chopra the first Indian Guess girl. "I'm like their first brown model," Chopra told Women's Wear Daily. "For a global fashion brand, for them to move their campaign into a global space, for me it's an honor." The stunning black-and-white photos, shot by Bryan Adams, feature Chopra sporting Guess' signature teased hair, cat eyeliner and sexy clothes in a Mediterranean villa. Translation: The campaign is an instant classic, bringing to mind the ads of Claudia Schiffer and Anna Nicole Smith, Chopra's predecessors. Chopra said she was hand-selected by Paul Marciano, Guess' president, after he met her and immediately dubbed her the new Sophia Loren. Since Marciano's last model of choice, Kate Upton, has become the poster child for glamorous bombshell beauty, we have no doubt that Chopra will be the name on everybody's lips ...

Where there’s a will, there’s drama
Financial Post - over 4 years
How We Die Now: “Death renders all equal,” wrote Claudian. How each one of us relates to death, however, is individual, and always changing — as we mature; as we contemplate life, and death, around us; and as society changes. In this special series in the National Post, we present stories and columns looking at the different ways we see, and prepare for, the Great Equalizer. To read the complete series, click here. Celebrity estate battles play out like bad reality television. Here are a few notable ones: James Gandolfini’s will is a tax “disaster,” an estate lawyer told the New York Daily News. Mr. Gandolfini, known for his role as tough but conflicted mobster Tony Soprano on the HBO series The Sopranos, died at 51, leaving most of his estimated $70-million estate to his 13-year-old son and infant daughter. This means a large portion could be subject to estate taxes; taxes would not be due if he had transferred his estate to his spouse. Mr. Gandolfini’s son, Michael, is to...

New York City Opera: Final curtains
The Economist - over 4 years
“I WANT to blow you all. Blow you all. A kiss,” trilled Sarah Joy Miller (pictured, in a pink confection), who played the title role in “Anna Nicole”, a New York City Opera production at the Brooklyn Academy of Music. The opera depicted the life of Anna Nicole Smith, a Playboy model who, at the age of 26, married a Texan oil billionaire of 89. She went on to become a reality-show diva and tabloid queen. The bawdy comic libretto (she ordered her plastic surgeon to “Supersize me”) gave way in the second half to a dark verismo. The final aria, during which she dies, was as wrenching as the death of Violetta, the consumptive courtesan-heroine of “La Traviata”. It is also a reminder of how she died in real life: with an audience watching.The curtain went down on “Anna Nicole” on September 28th. Three days later, a metaphorical curtain fell on the New York City Opera. Crippled by financial problems going back at least three decades, the 70-year-old company announced on October 1st that i...
