Attention Serial addicts! A new podcast, that starts today, will look more closely at a murder that happened in Baltimore more than fifteen years ago. The podcast called Undisclosed: The State v. Adnan Syed will reveal ‘new evidence and information’ in the 1999 murder of Woodlawn H.S. student Hae Min Lee and the subsequent trial and incarceration of her former boyfriend, Adnan Syed.
Undisclosed: The State v. Adnan Syed podcast
Like many, I first became aware of Hae Min Lee and Adnan Syed after listening to the incredibly addicting (and gripping) 12-part podcast called Serial. If you’ve not listened to the original podcast series, I highly encourage you to check it out, here.
A new trailer for the next James Bond film, SPECTRE, has just been released. The latest addition to the James Bond franchise sees Daniel Craig reprising his role as the infamous MI6 spy for a fourth time, following the worldwide success of 2012’s Skyfall, which I loved despite the fact that it killed off Judi Dench.
SPECTRE is scheduled to open in theaters on Friday, November 6, 2015.
I don’t pay that much attention to how many followers I have on Twitter, but last week I nearly fell out of my chair when I saw that Taye Diggs started following me. I still think that it might have been a mistake on his part – although we both do share a love for Broadway musicals.
I’ve been obsessing over Taye Diggs ever since I saw late 90s movie How Stella Got Her Groove Back. In my opinion, this Hollywood / Broadway star has only become better looking and more interesting with age.
Chalk this post up to me bragging (and flirting just a bit in case Mr. Diggs ever sees this post). I know he doesn’t fancy men but that won’t stop me from fancying him.

Last night season eight of The Voice premiered (does this show ever go off air?) and Christina Aguilera is back once again as a coach. To promote the show she joined Jimmy Fallon on The Tonight Show. Jimmy asked her to play “Wheel of Musical Impressions” where she had to channel the likes of Cher, Brittany and Shakira. She was flawless and perhaps at her best singing The Folger’s jingle as Cher, but even Brittany fans are likely to love her version of how Ms. Spears might sing “This Little Piggy”. Say what you will but sitting down without any heads up she does a better live impersonation of Brittany Spears than Brittany could.
Last week this image of Cindy Crawford created quite a stir on Twitter. I think Charlotte Wilder put it best when describing her reaction when she wrote, “Until last weekend, I thought of myself as the kind of woman who wasn’t affected by how the media portrays women. I thought I was too aware and too savvy to hold myself to standards of beauty that are unreal. Magazines Photoshop everybody and everything. Everyone knows that.”
I’m not posting this image to comment on how Cindy Crawford looks. I’m posting this picture because I think even
jaded savvy consumers like you and me are deluded if we think we have a healthy understanding of what a gorgeous woman like Cindy Crawford looks like as she ages (quite gracefully I might add).
I don’t begrudge anyone who wants to Photoshop their photos or engage in any kind of nip and tuck to help hide their years, but I do think that we would all be better off if we kept this image firmly in mind. Cindy Crawford is beautiful, but she isn’t 18 years old so let’s stop pretending that is an ideal one can maintain. Youth is precious because it is fleeting. If it was forever it wouldn’t be coveted.

In an attempt to maintain my blog’s “wicked gay” rating, I thought it was time to post this Single Ladies choreography chart. The timing with the pending Valentine’s Day weekend is purely coincidental.
Although I’m sure this is really intended for kids, I think cartoon fans of all ages might find the 20th Annual Bugs Bunny Festival something fun to attend.

The festival features 3 different programs:
– All Bugs Revue
– Daffy Duck & Friends
