Oh, what a time it was. Back during the Movie Martin day, I interviewed a then-breaking big Channing Tatum at the Loews Miami Beach, one sunny, humid Friday afternoon, when he was in town meeting with press on behalf of Steven Soderbergh’s Magic Mike. So this was summertime, 2012. I had gotten into the magazine game […]
When I was very young (OK…younger), I heard the siren song of Miami. Miami. You know, where the heat is on. I started to visit the Magic City as a child, but I started to get to know it as a teen through the magic of the movies. Movies, Miami movies, back when movies where […]
Heartbreakers is on, you guys. Talk about a pre-9/11 movie – a comedy, no less – that’s held up good. It is so good. Jennifer Love Hewitt is riding her first big wave. OMG, she was on the cover of the first Teen People three years prior – she was the wave! Two years after Galaxy Quest, […]

Really, if it’s really so awful, why is […]
Last week, I answered one of Madonna’s tweets, and her Music has been playing at home ever since. No music, no fun. No fun, no life. Repeat it like a mantra.
Late last month I saw something on Twitter that made me sad. LOL. A darling friend from Miami – we went to see Madonna perform during one of the DVD nights of her “MDNA Tour” (so we tight) – was lamenting her teenaged son’s first day back in school, as she noted that Rudy Giuliani’s […]
