Meet Ilyena Lydia Vasilievna Mironoff and bow to a career of real theatre, elegance, poise, and dedication. It takes a real vision to develop a life of mastery and real sense of identity. What we love about Helen Mirren…
Yes, because that is her “British” name. Of Tsarist Aristocratic descent, Helen Mirren is the daughter of Vasily and English Kate Rogers. Somehow her grandfather got “stuck” in London in 1917 during the Russian Revolution. Then ca
I’m really starting to think everyone in Hollywood has made a sex tape at some point. From Paris Hilton to Rob Lowe, I guess you’re not one of the cool kids if you don’t have one. The latest sex tape scandal involves pop sensation Rihanna who reportedly made a sex tape with rapper J Cole and it’s now being shopped around. Media Take Out was apparently sent screenshots from the tape along with a distribution offer. In addition, J Cole’s phone was reportedly stolen after a tour he did with Rihanna. Could that be where the sex tape originally emerged from? Vivid Entertainment is one of the big hanchos in the adult entertainment industry and according to some reports, they’ve definitly showed some interest in the tape.

Not since the Beatles broke through the boredom of U.S. radio with I Want to Hold Your Hand in 1964 did anything pack quite the power and trigger quite the seismic shift that Nirvanas single Smells Like Teen Spirit did in 1991.

Nirvana may not have invented the sound but they formed it into a fashion to which those teens could relate.
Now, in commemoration of the albums 20th anniversary, UMe is re-issuing it in a wide variety of formats, from a simple CD and digital remaster of the original album to a massive super deluxe, limited edition four-CD/one-DVD.
The dish: Chicken Wrap Deluxe, $8.95 at Crush Cafe
Did they really grill this chicken?
It had the yielding tenderness of rotisserie white meat. Rather than masking a poorly rendered main ingredient with competing tastes from lettuce, tomato and bacon, the kitchen seemed intent on making sure the whole was the sum of great parts.
Swiss cheese played far off in the background. Romaine and tantalizing tomato strips struck a nice balance. In fact they were essential foils to the hearty sugar maple bacon that imparted too much sweetness to the vinaigrette.
If Crush pulled back on one element with this sandwich, it should be the sugar. But there was also a peppery heat at work, adding a strong savory complement. The supple honey wheat wrap also compensated for the sweetness.
Why don’t more shops produce this level of quality, invention and care?
Too many places inure us to lower-tier quality and ho-hum execution. Read more…
