The Following’s season end is near!

Only four episodes of The Following left, people! I don’t know about you, but I’m not ready to let go.  I’m not complaining though.

My interview with Susanna Hoffs

I just got off the phone with Susanna Hoffs as in The Bangles, you know, “Walk Like an Egyptian,” “Eternal Flame” and “Manic Monday.” This is another personal milestone for me. It’s right up there, ranking by my chats with Neil Young, Tori Amos and Lady Gaga. I pretty much bumped around to The Bangles […]

My star studded lake house retreat

L.A. was missing a few stars this weekend and I found them shining at a secluded lake house just outside the quaint ski town of St. Sauveur.

This dark and very personal offering is so stunning it […]

FREE covers of Imogen Heap, Chris Isaak and Bjork from The Last Domino

I accidentally came across stunning covers of Imogen Heap’s “Hide and Seek,” Chris Isaak’s “Wicked Game” and Bjork’s “Hyperballad” by singer-songwriter John Orr, who performs under the stage name The Last Domino. With the ridiculous amount of cover songs recorded in people’s bathrooms, it’s refreshing to come across some decent renditions that sound fresh and […]
