What Do You Want?

I posed this question on my Facebook page, but thought I should ask it here, too. I'm all ears--what do you want to see more of on this blog? More movies? More events? Should I bring back Monday Man Candy? Let me know in the comments. If you're feeling shy, go ahead and comment anonymously, or send me an email at if you want it to be our little secret.

Retrofit: Woof!

I love something a little unexpected, which why more and more I'm hunting down vintage novelty prints. At first, you can't really tell what these little blue things are.

Are they flowers?

Dandy's Got an Album!

Congratulations are definitely in order--Dandy Wellington and His Band just released an album! Last week, the band released the EP "Harlem Rhythm" on iTunes. He has a really tight band and is an all-around showman. Such a treat to listen to. I couldn't be happier for Dandy and for even more people to hear his music. I first saw him at brunch three years ago for my birthday and I've gone to see him roughly a million times since then. Congrats, Dandy!

See the band live.

Hotel Chantelle Dinner - Tuesday - 8PM
Penthouse 808 Dinner - Wednesday 7PM

Summer School for Film Noir Nerds

When Turner Classic Movies announced they'd be holding an online course about film noir, I dropped everything I was doing to sign up. The network teamed up with Ball State University and, the online course platform, to bring fans "Into the Darkness: Investigating Film Noir". And it dovetails with "The Summer of Darkness" film noir series happening on TCM over the next few months.
