Vibe Folds

It's true. It's really true. Vibe Magazine announced today that it's folding. It breaks my heart. It's the subscription I've had the longest and I worked for them...

Read their twitter here. As if things haven't been bad enough in the entertainment/media world recently.

Fighting the Power 20 Years Later

Spike Lee's Do the Right Thing is celebrating its 20th anniversary. Love, love, love that movie, the movie that made Rosie Perez a star. And while it mirrors the riots of the 60s, it's very true to life in Brooklyn at my time. My boyfriend's father grew up with Spike on the same block and knew the character Radio Raheem was based on.

Radio Raheem's famous speech that would be right at home in a Broadway play. So beautiful.




Let me know if you can find those rings. Thanks, Spike!

Farrah Fawcett Getting Married

After many years together, Farrah Fawcett, who's struggling to survive the anal cancer that's spread to her liver, will be Ryan O'Neal. Read more HERE.

Changes

Hard to believe, but Now and Later (now Pop-o-matic Deluxe) has been around for a year. I think it's time for a couple changes. Don't worry about the shifting templates and colors. I promise it will be pretty and full-service soon enough. You can also expect more current stuff and a surprise that's still in the works (hint: it will be a mix of sexy, funny and, dear i say it, ironic). Thanks for reading.

Up | 3D v2.0


I'm sorry my updating has been so sporadic. I've had to do a lot of thinking to decide whether or not it was even worth it to keep Now and Later going and what new direction I would be taking the blog in.

Saturday I finally got to see Up. I don't even think I realized it was in 3D, but I got really excited when the woman at the theater handed me a pair of 3D glasses. I know I've seen at least one 3D movie but I can't remember when it was.

It's kind of cool that Disney/Pixar are bringing 3D back, though. You'd think it'd be more popular since the technology has existed for about 150 years, though it didn't have it's "golden age" until the 50s.

Fun fact: 'Dial M for Murder' was in 3D when it first came out. Didn't know that until recently, but Grace Kelly being strangled in 3D must've been really creepy for audiences back then.
