I like this girl

I caught Diane Birch on Letterman last night and really enjoyed her performance. Plus, she's sporting my upcoming fall haircut. She's playing a free show on Roosevelt Island on Saturday.

Opportunity Seized

"In March of 2008, a large fire burned the roof and top floor of the 100-year old Brooklyn building that is home to Oso Industries. During the roof’s reconstruction, workers cut out and carted through our shop these huge charred beams with a thick, unique texture. We decided to take this remainder of a destructive event and turn it into something constructive, reinventing the burned wood as polished concrete surfaces for our furniture. Using rubber, we created a mold from the most interesting of these beams, and the Burn series was born."

Palin Prose

As a former editor, I can relate to turning a pile of crap into a masterpiece and not getting any credit for it. This one's a pile of crap for sure. You betcha!

Vanity Fair took Palin's resignation speech and transformed it into something far less embarassing. It's good for a laugh.
