Tonight is the night!  Project Runway is FINALLY coming back to Bravo!!  I am a huge fan of this show.  It's maybe the only reality competition show that actually RULES.

I am one of those poor unfortunate souls who does not have cable so I have eagerly anticipated each season's release on DVD, and Season 3 just came out on DVD this week also, so I will be hitting that as soon as possible as well.  Even though I already know who won Season 3, I can't wait to sink back into all the drama and the fashion.  I tend to blaze through the whole season in only a few days, so it will be interesting that for Season 4, for the first time I will actually see it all unfold each week thanks to a friend's cable!  I was a little late to the game with Project Runway, so this is actually the first time it's gonna be starting up a new season while I am on to it, and I will not miss an episode now!

Project Runway works so well because it has all these creative, intense, driven people working and living in such small quarters and under so much pressure.  It's fabulous to watch them cope with the challenges, like making evening wear out of items bought from a half hour shopping spree in a grocery store, or designing an ice skating outfit in one day for Sasha Cohen after experiencing the ice and leotards for themselves.  I love it.

FOUND FINDS GOLD IN OTHERS' DISCARDED ITEMS

Mario,  
I hate you! You said you had to work. Then why is your car here at her place? You're a liar.
I hate you. I hate you!

Pictured above, holding one of his countless finds, a photo/painting collage, is FOUND magazine co-founder Davy Rothbart and to the right is a transcription of the infamous, short, passionately scribbled note that he found on his car windshield one snowy morning in Chicago six years ago -- the very note that inspired him to initiate what would become a popular magazine (Found), a couple of books culled from the magazines, a popular website, a spinoff magazine (Dirty Found), and an excuse to tour the USA making connections with a whole subculture of people addicted to digging in the garbage or looking down on the sidewalk to find discarded or lost items (letters, to-do lists, photos, kids' paintings, napkin doodles, birthday cards, printed emails, etc, etc) to submit for publication in Found.

At the moment, Davy, who runs the popular and unique magazine with his brother/business partner Peter and a host of others, is currently in the midst of one of his "tours." The current Found Tour is a sixty five city trek across the USA and Canada during which he and his brother converge with fans at independent bookstores, libraries, community halls, bars, and small clubs. There they display "found" items, read aloud found letters, and with guitar and other accompaniment, perform musical interpretations of their finds, and, most importantly, meet other fanfound magazines of found items who always bring along stuff that they've found -- much of which finds its way either into an issue of Found or on the Found Website where the Find of the Day is posted daily. I recently caught up with Davy, who was in the SoCal area last week for a series of Found shows in San Diego, Long Beach, and Los Angeles, to ask him about his magazine and in particular that note from Amber to Mario that started the whole thing.

then a banana pulled a cool standup tube, dude …

Last week thousands of bananas washed up on two Dutch North Sea islands after about a half a dozen containers fell off a cargo ship during a storm. Scattering across a half-mile stretch of beach, thousands of unripe bunches bejeweled the beaches of Terschelling Island, 70 miles north of Amsterdam. Bananas also washed up on neighboring Ameland Island.

Apparently this happens more often then you’d think on the Terschelling beaches. Last year thousands of tennis shoes, aluminum briefcases and children's toys washed ashore, I hope it was Saint Nicholas day.

The Timeless Classics Of Cheech And Chong - Mexican American, Earache My Eye, Me and My Old Lady

Posted by Gomez Comes Alive!, November 14, 2007 01:13am | Post a Comment
There were so many to pick from, so I narrowed it down to three.

"Mexican-American" (from Next Movie)

Favorite line: "Mexican Americans are named named Chata and Chela and Chema and have a son and law named Jeff..."


"Me And My Old Lady" (from Things Are Tough All Over)

This is one that slipped my mind for a minute. The song has that country-era Freddy Fender feel to it.

Favorite line: "Sometimes people space us out, so we make like a bread truck and haul buns out of there."


"Earache My Eye" (From Up In Smoke)

I was watching this recently and noticed that one of the horn players is none other than my mentor Ruben Guevara of Ruben and The Jets fame. A few weeks back I got see Ruben perform with members of the band Ollin at The Knitting Factory. They did a version of "Con Safos," Ruben's underground hit from the early 80's.

Favorite Line: "The basketball coach he just kicked me off the team, for wearing high heeled sneakers and acting like a qquuueennnn!!!!"
