Poor Johnny Depp! This might explain his current situation.

Tom and Giselle had some feedback on social media for their Met Gala outfits:

“Here, Giselle Bundchen in Alexander McQueen and Tom Brady in Steven Seagal.” – Bill Barnwell

“Tom Brady dressed as a dragon slayer to the #MetGala. Or a Chinese New Year calendar,” one person wrote.

Mental Laxative

I was talking with a friend discussing a problem, trying to figure it out. When we finally did, with some coaxing from me, my friend said, “You’re like a laxative for the mind.” Well…I’ve been called worse.

Psycho’s Dynasty

I was watching the old 80’s soap opera Dynasty the other day. I hadn’t seen it in years and was surprised how effective the opening sequence/credits were. Sure it seem dated and over-the-top (a bit of fun with all the male leads having oil rigs or skyscrapers beside them). But there is something more there, something above average TV production values. The music is so majestic, the credits perfectly timed with the visual cues. (I wish I could have loaded gif’s instead of still photos into this blog.)

That’s when I realized they had taken a page from Alfred Hitchcock’s/Saul Bass Psycho credits. Vertical lines for Dynasty, vertical and horizontal with accompanying violins for Psycho.  Uplifting, majestic cords for Dynasty; sinster, nervous energy for Psycho. Nothing like borrowing from the best.
