These recordings changed my life…

I will never be who I was before hearing these powerful words…

First Kiss …In Color

I loved First Kiss but wanted to see myself represented.
I didn’t complain, I did something about it. Its time to break down stereotypes.
Many of us saw ourselves in First Kiss, I just wanted everyone to see themselves in us.

Why Don’t You? An Ode To Madame Vreeland.


Why don’t you..paint a map of the world on all four walls of your boys’ nursery so they won’t grow up with a provincial point of view?Diana Vreeland

Diana Vreeland changed the face of fashion and she changed the minds of woman all over the world.

Her Harper’s Bazaar column in the 1930’s had the women of that day inspired to think outside the mundane. I love her. As an ode to DV I made up my own ‘why don’t yous’ and inspire you to do something different.. today and always…

So… Why don’t you….

…Stop watching TV for a week.

…Send an ‘eat your heart out’ pic to your ex with only the words “just saying hi” and when he calls or texts, don’t respond.

…Only listen to music from the 40’s for a spell.

…Acknowledge that your mom did the very best she could then call and thank her.

…Step it waay up at work and then… Ask for a raise.

…Take a trip to Paris with a girlfriend and when you get there make a new “friend”.


…Learn a new language.

…go on a vintage only shopping trip and buy something fabulous.

…Wear red today.

…Kiss a beauttiful stranger

Why don’t you?

Diana Vreeland was a noted columnist and editor in the field of fashion. She worked for the fashion magazines Harper’s Bazaar and Vogue and as a special consultant at the Costume Institute of the Metropolitan Museum of Art.

Beauty Tip #454

Want whiter teeth without spending hundreds of bucks on home kits and dentist visits??

Well here is a safe, simple, painless method…

Buy a tooth paste that promises whiter teeth, apply a generous amount to your toothbrush  and brush your teeth 3 times as long as you normally would. 

Afterwards, gargle with Hydrogen Peroxide for 60 seconds…

Your teeth will be noticeably whiter within 4 days.. (You’ll be amazed)

Yes it’s that simple…


It Pours..

I wish tonight was thundering and lightning. Rain pouring down on us.

We’d have to duck into one of those big french doorways to keep from getting wet… Between the laughter, the brandy we drank and the noise from the rain.. we would make love…

I don’t care who sees us..

“Frank Ocean, you’re not the only one, I’m also… A Gay Man!”

I had a good, long honest think about it and before I call my mom… I thought I’d tell you first…

I’m a gay man.. there I said it! How do I know?? Ok, I’ll run down the list. Ready?

I love.. And I mean LOVE

Diana Ross, Cher, Beyonce, Lady Gaga, Clark Gable, Madonna,Bette Davis, Bob Mackie, Drag Queens, Pretty woman (but only as friends), Gorgeous men (to sleep with), Janet Jackson, George Michael and rainbows…


Me as I was..

It’s easy for the the days to start to run together as time moves so quickly and it’s even easier to lose sight of why we came.

The mundane aspects of life coupled with a blinding drive for success can cause us to forget what it’s all about.

Do you remember why you wanted to dance? Do you remember why you wanted to fall in love? Why you wanted to make people laugh? Why you wanted to paint? Why you wanted to be a designer? Why you wanted to teach?

When you catch yourself, like I did, stuck in the not real or worried about illusions.. Remember.

You only want the things you want because you feel you will be happier in the having of those things.. so why not feel good now? Go to the beach. Hang out with people who understand you. Cook an amazing meal. Dance to old music. Sing in the shower.. FEEL GOOD NOW!

I always think of these words from the play Six Degrees Of Separation:

“This is what I dreamt. I didn’t dream, so much as realize this. I feel so close to the paintings. I’m not just selling them, like, pieces of meat. I remembered why I loved paintings in the first place, what got me into this. I thought… dreamt… remembered… how easy it is for a painter to lose a painting. He paints and paints, works on a canvas for months, and then, one day, he loses it. Loses the structure, loses the sense of it. You lose the painting.”

Dont lose your painting..

There is nothing more paramount than seizing the day.. Carpe Diem
