Jeff Bridges & The Abiders dedicate concert to Robin Williams

Actor turned musician Jeff Bridges dedicated his performance with The Abiders – his band – to his Fisher King costar, iconic comedian Robin Williams, last night, while playing at the Paramount, in Huntington, NY.

“We lost a dear friend - we dedicate this concert tonight to Robin Williams!” Bridges is said to have serenaded the gathered crowd before sounding as if he was choking up. 

Quite touching.

And it brought us back to mourning the loss of a true legend and iconic performer that mastered his craft and could bring his audience to tears and laughter – often times in the same performance. Read the rest of this entry »

Mariska Hargitay  is the sweetest of all celebs to be found.  Whether it’s photographers or fans – Hargitay will make contact and never be put out for it.  At times, like when we stopped by the Law and Order: SVU set in Riverdale recently, she undertakes double duty without batting an eyelash or missing a step.

Hisham Tawfiq leaving the set of The Blacklist in Yonkers

As a general rule in the photo world, you shoot first and worry about ID’s later.  With this very motto in mind we let the shutter click as we passed by The Blacklist set a few days ago.

The only drawback of such practice is that, at some point, you have to get to researching and identifying your mystery shots utilizing a basic form of deductive reasoning – or perhaps it’s more inductive reasoning – which is how we arrived at concluding that hot chocolate, here pictured above, had to be non-other than Hisham Tawfiq.

Law & Order: SVU star Kelli Giddish takes her pup for a walk while on break from filming in Riverdale, NY

Law and Order: SVU is one of the few shows we will readily admit to watching.  True that we end up watching marathon segments of the long running cop drama, as opposed to being home on its regularly scheduled weekly programming, but who is going to quibble?

So when we stopped by its Riverdale, NY set, on the lookout for some of the key players and happened on Kelli Giddish with her adorable pup Frannie, well, we thought EUREKA!, cuz who doesn’t like a celeb with a doggy?

No one, cept for our building’s owner – he’s a misery all his own that one is. Read the rest of this entry »

Nicki Minaj: MTV VMA Fashion Blunder

nickiminaj-vmaNicki Minaj, here pictured at the MTV VMA’s, in what appears to be a micro-mini leopard print dress and borrowed shoes – seriously they look about half a size too large – is riding high on the success of her Anaconda twerk video.  It was recently reported that it has some 4 million views – or sum such…  We knew not why it was all the rave.

So given that we hadn’t played it, we of course felt out of the loop and we had to go searching it out. Read the rest of this entry »

Aussie star Adam Garcia photographed in Knotting Hill – London.

Do you recall Adam Garcia?  He stole the spotlight in films like Coyote Ugly, Riding in Car With Boys and Confessions of A Teenage Drama Queen before seemingly falling off the grid – state side anyway.

We happened on bumping into him some years ago, while we were visiting friends in London’s Knotting Hill neighborhood, and rushed up to ask for a few pics for which he happily obliged.  This happened just prior to learning of his Fiyero starring role in the UK production of Wicked opposite Idina Menzel.

Yes, we caught the show!  He was dreamy in the role. Read the rest of this entry »

Nick Cannon: Mariah Carey Break-Up Rumors

Mariah Carey: Preciously MedicatedWith rumors of an impending announcement of Mariah and Nick Cannon’s “official” breakup not too far off, the world waits with bated breadth.

Ok, that last part is a slight exaggeration.

Don’t think the world rightly gives a good goddamn about the concocted operatic drama that is Mariah (S)-Carey and Nick “America’s Got Talent” Cannon troubled goings on.   Read the rest of this entry »
