In another 2014 blog post, Claudia wrote that Geller had “forced” her to get an internship at an online fashion company during her first year at NYU — an opportunity that led to her big break. In the blog post, Claudia wrote she was the “worst and least useful intern to ever grace their halls” and kept “fucking shit up.” She decided her antics were funny enough to share, so she started a blog called GirlWithAJob.com, where she wrote mostly made up anecdotes about her intern life. After her boss found her blog via Facebook, Claudia deleted it and lost her internship. Thus her new blog, Girl With No Job, was born. … [Read more...] about Claudia And Jackie Oshry Of “The Morning Toast” Have Survived Several Scandals. Some Fans Have Finally Hit Their Breaking Point

“She cut in front of the whole line, jumped on a tube with these girls, didn’t say a word to them, and just asked Olivia to take pictures,” Murphy said, referring to Claudia’s other sister. “So in the pictures, it looks like, hey, there you are hanging out with Girl With No Job, your favorite podcast host you’re on a tube with, you’re flying around, but in reality she didn’t say two words to these girls. She just rolled up, asked her sister to take a picture, and then rolled away.” She added that she later saw the photo on Claudia’s Instagram page. … [Read more...] about Claudia And Jackie Oshry Of “The Morning Toast” Have Survived Several Scandals.

For the next dozen years, he sold pictures everywhere, including People, The National Enquirer and the European tabloids. His fond reminiscences include hanging out in a trash bin near West Hollywood's Pacific Design Center, then lifting the lid to catch a pregnant Tatum O'Neal, and shooting Madonna's 1985 Malibu wedding to Sean Penn from a helicopter. His occupational fisticuffs are recollected with wistful affection: "Ryan O'Neal and I went a few rounds when he was with Farrah [Fawcett]. He punched me one night outside of La Scala — or, no, it was the old Morton's. Crazy stuff. There's been a lot over the years. One time I got too close to Frank Sinatra, and his bodyguard, Jilly Rizzo, just laid one right in my stomach at Jimmy's Restaurant. It's gone. Now it's a big apartment building right next to Beverly Hills High School." … [Read more...] about The Memorabilia King vs. the Studio Detective: The Never-Before-Told Account of an Epic Battle Over Stolen Movie Props
The commercial high profile of synthesiser music and its associations with long-haired 'progressives' were why most punk rockers regarded keyboards as a no-no. 'Technoflash' was NME's sneering designation for the genre, the flash referring both to the ostentatious display of nimble-fingered virtuosity and to the over-the-top stage costumes and expensive lighting. When Wire's second album Chairs Missing appeared in 1978, the presence of synths led one reviewer to complain that they'd gone from Pink Flag to Pink Floyd in less than a year. Around that time, a spate of synthesiser based singles emerged from the post-punk do-it-yourself underground - the Human League's 'Being Boiled', the Normal's 'Warm Leatherette', Throbbing Gristle's 'United' - but these artists were at pains to differentiate themselves from the cosmic synth bands. The Normal - aka Daniel Miller, founder of Mute Records - complained that the trouble with most synth-players was that they were musicians who played the … [Read more...] about Kings of the cosmos
Over the past few months, Lazy Bear returned to some of its fanciness. A side of carrots looked elegantly arranged with tweezers in its plastic container; the spears cured, grilled over oak and glazed with carrot juice that had been reduced into a caramel. Meal kits arrived, at one point including house-made gnocchi and a chunk of truffle for at-home shaving. Employees created mystery wine boxes and led live blind tastings on Instagram. Barzelay and his team posted videos of themselves telling the stories behind everything since they could no longer do so in person. … [Read more...] about San Francisco’s Lazy Bear rose out of a recession.

Burnley shame – The captain of Burnley FC says he is “ashamed and embarrassed” after fans of the club towed a banner reading “White lives matter Burnley” in the sky over the Etihad stadium shortly before the club’s 5-0 thrashing by Manchester City.
