The tales of a freelancer based in New York. Told from a first hand perspective, deep in the trenches of current events and celebrity red carpets. The sole purpose of the site is to bring some laughter, a little payback and/or a smile to its readers and feed my urge.

Actor, comic and musician, Jim Belushi, joined the cast of the HBO mini-series “Show Me a Hero,” which has been steadfastly filming throughout Yonkers, NY, for interior scenes at the Ukranian Youth Center, a few days ago. Read the rest of this entry »
Where angelic Dame Angelina Jolie goes, mayhem follows. Her New York City Paley Center for Media stop for a conversation with Tom Brokaw to discuss her new film “Unbroken,” was no exception. Sometimes this mayhem is due to overzealous security, at times its photographers but this time the beauty’s arrival was marred by the frenzy of the professional autograph hounds otherwise referred to as “fans.” Read the rest of this entry »
Vanity Fair’s own – George Wayne – had a birthday celebration at V at 15 Watts St, last night, with a bevy of close friends to mark the milestone. Oh, who are we kidding, Wayne is a fete tout le temp. Brother man hardly needs an excuse, but attend we did never-the-less cuz who the hell are we to decline a Grey Goose on the rocks!

We recently stopped by the Urge film set and were rewarded with a few shots of Twilight alum Ashley Greene looking the total beauty in a party girl ensemble. The look was completed with a very perky pup parading the set trailers with her owner. Read the rest of this entry »

Jennifer Aniston attended a special screening of her new film “Cake,” held at the Tribeca Grand, in NYC, the other night. We heard about it and thought she’d do the honors of making it a Justin Theroux date night but girl took the lone road for the small venue. Read the rest of this entry »
The talent that is Benedict Cumberbatch swooped into NY last night to join Pitbull, John Malkovich, Tom McGrath and Annet Mahendru for the “Penguins of Madagascar” premiere, held at The Rink at Bryant Park. Read the rest of this entry »
We strolled up to Washington Heights a few days ago and bumped into the “Urge” film set taking residence where Mildred Pierce filmed. Took it as a good omen, we did. We quickly itemized – mentally – who all was in the film and a particular name – Chris Geere – jumped out at us followed by a roll of giggles.
It happens, periodically…
For those of y’all who don’t immediately know Geere – let shame be your companion – he costars in the FX roncom “Your The Worst.” The sitcom is nothing short of hysterical, fueled by total political incorrectness! (YES, you read that right.) Read the rest of this entry »
There is one thing to hear about security breaches filtered through televised reportage and another thing entirely to watch it unfold first hand. And then there is the watching a would be victim of such described melee after she has obnoxiously treated folks for no discernible reason other than having a disagreeable disposition. The last one is where we find Jennifer Lawrence! Read the rest of this entry »
Mexican export, Gael Garcia Bernal, is award nomination bound, if the buzz around his new film “Rosewater,” which had its NY premiere last night, is to be banked on. The 35-year-old “Amores Perros” break out star and cross-over talent is even OSCAR bound, by some accounts.
Wouldn’t be completely shocking. Biteable lips, bewitching eyes and an abundance of talent too boot – a total package which make Bernal mesmerizing on screen. Read the rest of this entry »
Emile Hirsch, LeeLee Sobieski, Joan Smalls and Hizzoner Michael Bloomberg attended the Museum of Modern Art tribute to famed director Alfonso Cuaron. Of course there were other attendees, but why dwell on those who were not snapped at the outside arrivals press line. Read the rest of this entry »
