    Take Action

    Celebrity Sightings

    • Christina Applegate and Chole Sevigny
      at the BWE 100th episode party. They are both so blonde. That color blonde that does not exist in real life but only with chemical enhancement. They're beautiful though.
    • Melba Moore
      in the airport in Nairobi, Kenya! We smiled at each other over Nescafe (aka coffee).
    • Parker Posey
      at Murray's Bagels. She looked really punk rock.
    • Jessica Lange and Sam Shephard
      at A History of Violence at Cinema Village. They were so cute and followed us everywhere from the movies to Cedar Tavern and back to the movies. They probably thought we were following them.
    • Nicole Ari Parker and Boris Kodjoe
      pushing their baby down 13th Street. I was having a meeting at Cosi around the corner from my overcrowded office. I looked out the window and there they were. They stopped in front of my window and were doing the, who should take the baby conversation. I was trying to listen to the person talking to me but I could not and she was not the type of person who would understand my distraction by these celebs. They are both really attractive but almost too much so. His sneakers were new. His jeans were new. It was weird. I like imperfection.
    • Joshua Redman
      running on 18th Street. I realized that I've seen him many times before and just did not realize it. He was smaller than I thought he's be but I guess most people are.
    • Patti Smith
      which was not a big deal to me but my friend Marina apparently sees her all the time. This was her fourth sighting. I said she should say something like, "I see you everywhere. We should hang out." Marina wouldn't take the bait.
    • Leonardo DiCaprio
      with Isha on our way to the PATH station on 9th Street and 6th Ave. He is very tall but as my friend says, one cheeseburger away from being fat. His bodyguard "subtely" was wearing a jogging suit next to him. I guess they exercise together. He wasn't so hot to me but another girl flipped out when she saw him so what do I know.
    • Sam Rockwell and Liev Schreiber
      on New Year's Eve but you gotta buy me a few drinks to hear that story.
    • John Turturro
      in Union Square looking tall and handsome. I’ve always had a strange little crush on him.

    The video annoys me more than the song. The song has like 6 notes...smart of her to start easy. There is no soul in the song, however.

    I love this glimpse into your train of thought! For the most part though I'm with L.Britt, although I agree with you that SJ's voice is very steady. The video is terrible. I understand the point she is making--this song/this voice is her without make-up, raw and genuine but the video makes her come across like a snob. I can't stand it when actors complain about being dressed up and paraded about. So just don't do it and accept the fewer trappings that come with a lower public profile.

    Adriana-

    I hear you about the video. I agree about hating when celebs complain about being dressed up and paraded around, especially when they are shooting commercials for millions of dollars. Scarlett is by no means down to earth. Seeing her w/o makeup does not get that across.

    Uhm...what is Salmon Rushdie doing in the Video??? I like Scar-Joe's voice- i just don't think she should be doing Tom Waits covers- she has a course voice- do some Rock-n-Roll girl!

    Oh and that is funny- the song does have 6 notes.

    you know, i read this entry a while ago but i meant to say how funny and true it was. i thought i nina simone when i first heard her. her voice - both, really - is kind of heavy, you know? ive always thought of nina as someone who had soul and plenty to say. she learned her craft, played at least an instrument and made beautiful music. her voice - not like a whitney or etta or aretha but still necessary and powerful.

    and theres scarlett...

    hmmm....

    you know her blues aint like mine or yours so yeah...

    hmmm....

    she better get some voice lessons to train that voice of hers.

    please.

    I just listened to the Tom Waits version for kicks and I have to say that I hate Tom Waits and I would still rather listen to his version...hmmmmmmm I think that about covers my thoughts on this matter.
