"Rabbit-Proof Fence"

In the book, "Follow the Rabbit-Proof Fence" by Doris Pilkington Garimara, the fence was used in the 1930s by three Indigenous Australian girls for their route back home to Jigalong.

The girls taken from their parents in Western Australia as part of the Stolen Generation, escaped from the Moore River Native Settlement mission where they were being held and walked back to their family at Jigalong by following the rabbit-proof fence.

Phillip Noyce's masterpiece.

A God on the Hudson River

It was a simple task, really. Move a five million pound hand-hammered solid copper table from Surprise Furniture into the duplex of Julian Schnabel's Palazzo Chupi on West 11th Street, overlooking the Hudson River. 

The two movers spoke to a god they hadn't thought of in years.

Hold Me While I’m Naked


Hold Me While I'm Naked is a pastiche of Hollywood melodrama and soft-core eroticism, focusing on the frustrated efforts of an untalented director who loses his female lead and cannot replace her.

Genre: Alternative

2005 Cantora Records

40 years after the Summer of Love (and 30 years after the Summer of Hate), MGMT is celebrating the grand re-opening of the third eye of the world with "Oracular Spectacular," the duo's much-anticipated full-length album, an enigmatic and prophetic collection of hallucinatory sounds and hook-riddled pop tones for the new millennium.

Kool Marder: It has a good beat and you can dance to it.

G O D: The best band in the world.

Greta Garbo

Still more bad news: Greta Garbo was on a European vacation, and reports of her embarrassing behavior there had reached the States. The less reserved European press commented on Garbo's frequent companionship with the Swedish Countess Ingrid Wachtmeister. The Countess, like Garbo, preferred boots and trousers, and was known in Sweden as a lesbian.

On a trip to Paris, they were spotted at a lesbian bar. One account called it "one of the most lurid nightclubs in Montmartre, frequented by hard-boiled women of the Paris demimonde, who go there attired in mannish costumes to give lady tourists the shock they are looking for by asking them to dance."

It was reported that the Countess danced the night away with "female gigolos," while Garbo, in black wig and glasses, watched from the bar.

Oscar Wilde

That evening Wilde dined at Blanche Roosevelt's house. Before dinner the guests put their hands through a curtain so that the palmist Cheiro could read their palms without knowing who they were.

When Wilde held out his hands, Cheiro found the markings on each hand so different from the other that he explained how in palmistry the left hand denotes hereditary tendencies and the right hand individual developments.

The left hand in front of him, he said, promised a brilliant success; the right hand, impending ruin. 'The left hand is the hand of a king, but the right that of a king who will send himself into exile.'

Wilde, a superstitious man (he had refused to join the skeptics of the Thirteen Club), asked 'At what date?' 'A few years from now, at about your fortieth year.' (He was then thirty-eight.) Without another word Wilde left the party.

Donald's Holy Head

Donald's holy head, my graciousness butt-crack sandwich.

Donald is a freak like me and always will be and that is why he hangs out on the edge of the woods at the end of the field during recess.

He's the only one over there and he walks back and forth thinking about something that is consuming his life and everything he thinks he knows about it.

His petty little mind is probably full of the dark things that mine is, but he don't know how to be the master of his universe, to blend in and charm and awe like me.

Donald's short life is written all over his long face.
