26th October 2009 | 0 Comments

I saw a huge (tall & muscular) barefoot black man in a diaper (with baby bonnet and bottle) running around the Green Dolphin Street night club on Boom Boom Room night. I asked him who he was… he pulled out a photo of Madonna, pointed at it and said in a baby voice: “MA-MA” It [...]

Just watched forty-nine minutes of video on C-Span.org. It was a broadcast of the program portion of the White House Correspondents Dinner. The event’s participants is part A-List (there was a red carpet) part hard journalists’, part scholarship program (more than a dozen college students in journalism were recipients) and very crowded.

23rd April 2009 | 2 Comments

There are some basic survivor strategies that one must know when one comes to Ebertfest. I attended Ebertfest 2005 with my BFF Avis who was a big editor at the Chicago Sun Times and friend of Roger, so we had VIP-this and Press-that.

The night started off kinda slowly. The room was practically empty at 8PM. I was freaking!! I thought to myself: Oh great, I’m gonna have to come outta pocket for this one.

I was down in Birdland at Cast Party again last Monday night. This time I sang “If I Can’t Sell It” and I rocked the house. The audience was poppin’ fresh. I just did my thing and rocked the joint. At one point I was trying to get the already enthused crowd to scream, and [...]
