We used to be able to count on Brad Pitt for reliably tasteful and appropriate grownup and sexy style. But lately? Lately, as Amelia’s noted to me over IM on numerous occasions, the man is looking like a broke-down grandpa. I take the style to be “East L.A.

Pippa Middleton’s backside is already famous. If The Enquirer’s sources are accurate, we may be seeing a whole lot more of P-Middy from the front.

In honor of her upcoming film, “The Future” (which I predict I will love based on the trailer), Miranda July has created an interactive web oracle wherein she divines your future via a colorful spinning wheel. While she understands that we may be super skeptical of this new form of divination, she encourages us to remember that every form of fortune telling, including Tarot and astrology, even the Magic 8 Ball, had to start somewhere.

No, I don’t think so. Maybe this means I will wash my hair today? Yes, I believe a good shampooing is in my future. Wow! She’s amazing! I’ve opted to subscribe to her personalized divinations, which will now be sent directly to my inbox every Monday and Thursday. [The Future] Keep reading »
