It’s a Mad Mad Mad Art World

Sad to see Leonard Nimoy left us. Looking over his accomplishments, it’s clear he lead a very full, artistic life.

Man, I hope this is true. 

25 years later, the Gardner heist mystery continues.  That being said, hope is not lost – stolen paintings are showing up all over the place this week! 

Pretty cool graphic on the international presence at art fairs. 

Wow – good for the Dutch!

Good advice from a Master.

Did you watch the Parks & Rec finale? SO GOOD. I love Leslie so much. It was bittersweet. Sad to see it go and sad to think about Harris Whittels passing.

BUT – we got this gem: Late Night Finale – Lil Sebastien 

Not to mention THIS.

Now – this is a throwback. It may not be Thursday yet, but it is so funny and highlights so many women I grew up loving:

This 1970 New York Times Trend Piece on Woman Comedians Is Eternal

I’ve been thinking TOO MUCH about Gilda (Radner). The SNL special definitely tried to pay tribute – and bless Emma Stone’s heart – but, man. Gilda can not be replicated.

This is a pretty good round-up. 

BUT – this is my favorite. 

 

To The Academy…

Gotta be honest – not a great year for film… not a great year for women in film, to be specific.

That being said, some highlights:

Patricia Arquette dedicating her win to equal pay for women. 

Best Costume – Milena Canonero.

Marion Cotillard – looking chic & comfortable. LOVE IT. 

LUPITA! 

Damn. Anna Wintour isn’t even nominated and she’s owning the Oscars like a boss. 

Glory for Best Song – pretty incredible performance. 

Best Original Score – most French speech ever. “Wes. You are a genius. It is good.” 

Julianne Moore – I love you. 

Plenty o’ awkward moments. That being said, Oscars, you will forever be my Superbowl.

 

It’s Da Freakin Weekend!

Ahhh! The sun was out in Seattle today and I swear I could feel myself dancing for joy at a molecular level! We spent the day out & about – mostly obsessing over Gas Works Park. Hands down coolest park eva.

Loving this Seattle band I stumbled across – BRONCHO.

This should be magical, but in the real world is just frightening: Multicolored Snow in Russia? No Worries, Officials Say. 

The trailer for the new Judd Apatow movie really brings me back to my early days in NY.

More SNL goodness. 

Now and Then remake? Yes please!
