The BPM- Toe Jam, featuring David Byrne and Dizee Rascal

Great idea, great concept. I also thumbs up the 70s porn look.

Thanks, LC, for the heads up.

Celeb Sighting: Steve Harvey at JFK

So I just devoted 13 hours of my life to picking up high school students from JFK airport for the New York Film Academy’s summer program. Needless to say, airports suck, especially when everything is delayed and the Air Train only half works. On the bright side, all the kids were really nice and understanding. And also, I saw Steve Harvey, probably the most random celebrity ever.

He was wearing all black, and sporting a bald head. He had a giant cart of luggage and all the terminal employees started freaking out when he came out. Shockingly, his wife really is that hot and was wearing an impressively low-cut top, especially for air travel. That is all.

CELEB SIGHTING: Waris Ahluwalia in the West Village

Remember that guy in the turban in those Wes Anderson movies, and
Spike Lee’s The Inside Man? Last night, walking with Katie and Katrina down 6th ave, I spotted Waris Ahluwalia in a simple shirt and sweatpants. The only famous Sikh actor in Hollywood, I recognized him immediately, giving him a shy smile. His unfortunate monopoly on Sikh roles is an interesting position. As he points out, “Hollywood doesn’t know what to do with me”.

I’d know what to do with you, Waris.

Click here for an awesome interview on how this jeweler became such a famous actor.

Jason Bateman and David Cross: Together Again!

Jason Bateman appeared on Keith Olbermann’s program the other night to promote the new Will Smith movie in which he co-stars, Hancock. Midway through the interview, David Cross pops up, and much wild speculation about the upcoming Arrested Development movie transpires. Watch the clip on HuffPo.

James McAvoy

I’ll give him a skeet.

I know a lot of women are swooning over Mr. McAvoy here, and in my opinion, he’s the new Ewan McGregor. Why? Because he’s Scottish, his last name also starts with “Mc,” and his role in Atonement was sort of hot and romantic in a really perverse way. Don’t know why that makes him like Ewan McGregor? See the film Nora and you’ll understand. Better yet, read this post on Ewan. Also, sometimes he looks hot and sometimes not. What’s up with this, Scottish men? Is it the lighting? Or are they more bold in their choices of roles and don’t care if they make them look really greasy and skeevy? Or maybe it’s questionable personal hygiene. Until I get my own talk show, we may never know the answer. In the meantime, you decide: to skeet, or not to skeet.

How To: Pick a Crab (The Ones From The Ocean)

It’s summer! If you’re from Maryland or the general Delmarva region, you know that summer means steamed crabs and more Old Bay than you can shake a stick at. As a Baltimorean, I keep Old Bay on hand year-round, and never leave the country without it. For those of you who aren’t familiar with Old Bay, head to your local grocery and pick up a tin yellow box of the most amazing spice mix ever, sent directly from heaven, to be used mainly on dead crustaceans (but also good on just about anything).¬†And here follows instructions for anyone who has not had the pleasure of personally cracking open their own seafood, namely steamed crabs, and scooping out the disgusting innards to get at those delicious, delicious meats.

You will need: a sturdy butter knife, a wooden mallet (should come with the crabs), newspaper or brown paper to cover your table and avoid mess, a cold drink, lots of napkins or paper towels.
