Lunchtime Laughter

I tried to find a supercut containing Joan Rivers’ greatest disses, but sadly it does not exist. So you’ll have to make due with this clip from 2002 where she jokes about old age. Joan Rivers was a fearless lady, and one of the last public figures to be given the freedom to shit on those who needed to be shat on. With her passing at the age of 81, the world is now a safer place for celebrities… and that’s not necessarily a fun thing. She will be missed.

Openings & Parties: Promiscuities

This past Wednesday we co-hosted a party at Le Baron with Selectism for Jonathan Leder’s new film Promiscuities, starring Amy Hood. As one would expect with a sexy film, the crowd that gathered at the downtown club was nothing short of stunning.

Blue Dream

This web series from Alex Goldberg and Steven Brahms is the best thing we’ve ever watched with a weed smoking alien. Yes, even better than Paul.

Here’s the premise:

The year is unknown and the human race is virtually extinct. 5 years ago the last human escaped from Earth before it exploded. He crash landed on Blue Dream, one of the marijuana obsessed planets in the galaxy of Sinsimilla-8. Suffering from acute amnesia he remembers little of life on Earth. In an effort to jog his memories of the human experience, he has been teamed with an alien scientist who specializes in memory retrieval.
