A Master Distiller Tells a Buoyant Tale of Whisky Vapor and Eternal Youth

The stars that line the sidewalk of Hollywood Boulevard are a timid, human comment on immortality—certainly not a stellar one (those stars are fucking old)—but are made poignant by that wafer-thin golden line in Hollywood, that sees Porsches park beside paupers, and death and life live side-by-side.  I’ve arrived at the Spanish Colonial Style lounge of the Roosevelt Hotel after […]

Take Heed! You Do Not Make Another Tempter of This Snake

A smug fleshy man in a dusty suit rides a buckboard wagon into a frontier town. As Americans, we know him in our collective heart. He brings the medicine for all of our woes.  He sells us a lie, and we will buy and swallow every drop. The cure may prove, in time, to be a poison worse than what […]

Hobnobbing at The Kitchen NYC's Spring Gala

Last night—as a blustery spring NYC day drew to a close—our Uber drew up to Cipriani Wall Street to attend this year’s incarnation of The Kitchen Spring Gala, the annual party thrown by our partners, the non-profit art and performance space that is well into its fifth decade and looking younger every day.

Hello Darling, It's Me, Your Weekly Revelations.

MAKING MOVES IN THE DARK Fashion isn’t exactly known for representing marginalized groups. For the past few years most of the groups combatting this problem have focused on weight and the lack of diversity on the runway.

People often ask me, “Hey, how have you managed to stay so youthful and garden-fresh after all these years?” Good question. How is it that I, a man who may or may not be 27, 34, or even 48 years old, can remain so svelte, spry and vigorous while drifting into life’s inevitable autumn years? How? Botox? No. Am I […]

WORLDVIEW: THE ELIXIR ISSUE

Written by Suzanne Somers

I’ve written many books about “the new way to age” and it is crystal clear why people dread aging. Look at the present paradigm; it’s decrepit, frail, and disease ridden with Alzheimer’s, cancer, heart disease, or all three as “inevitable.” Add to that the eventual last stop being a nursing home, and we see a picture so horrific no wonder […]

A Trip Through the Annals of Amusement Park Lore

It doesn’t take more than ten minutes of conversation to deduce that I’m a jittery fellow. If it’s not the obsessive knuckle-cracking, darting eyes, and furrowed brow that gives it away, it’s my distinct ability to obliterate a pleasant conversation with a story about my most recent panic attack or a time I thought my life was in danger of […]
