Blindsighted or Blind Move?

So, since I don't subscribe to the live feeds (I would never leave home) or get Showtime (I would never get any sleep) I rely on BB8Dish for my Big Brother 8 scoop. And while I promise to not reveal any spoilers about the show, I will say some of the houseguests are making a huge mistake by taking out a "so-called" target while leaving three more viable nominees safe for another week. So if my boy Dustin does what I think he will, I think there were be big ramifications in the house and I sense that life in the house will take a weird turn. So boys and girls, think three weeks ahead, before you plot your next move... it could mean remaining safe for the next few weeks, as oppose to the possibility of one of your own going home before they are scheduled to, by playing this risky game.

More from the Curator

So with my show almost less then a month away and all the last minute details, I have not had a lot of time to blog about the important things (Lindsay's arrest, TomKat's party for Posh & Becks, or whether or not Lisa Rinna injects silicone into her lips.) But I promise you this, I have some strong opinions on all of those topics.

This show has been a real creative challenge and I love it. Selecting work by six really talented photographers was the easy part. Now comes the fun challenge of making sure the work fits properly on the wall, preparing a kick-ass guest list and looking over the printer proofs of the catalog. So again dear readers (and not to beat this to death) but if you are in New York City on September 10, please come join me and have a glass of prosecco - would love to see you there.

Artist of the Week: Matt Lipps

So I decided to add a new feature to my blog, a look at artists that inspire and delight me. The first person I decided to highlight is photographer and sculptor Matt Lipps. I'm not 100% sure where I first spotted his work, but I've been thinking about it a lot lately (an idea is brewing in my mind which I would like Matt to be involved with, I just cannot discuss it right now.) I love anyone who takes a medium we all know and spins it on its head and I love Matt's photographic sculptures. So dear readers, take the time out today and look over his work, you'll be happy you did. Enjoy... and stay tuned for next week's artist.

Bring on the Crazy

OK, try as I might there is no escaping the pull of Big Brother and season 8 so far has not disappointed. How friggin' brilliant is it that Jen won Head of Household this week, the girl is insane (and I love it) and mayhem and madness is going to be all over the house this week. So, everyone was so ready to boot the girl out of the house and now there will be a week of them kissing her ass, big time. She's such a wild card, I have no idea who's going on the block - but safe to say, the girl will be trying to eliminate her female competition, so most likely Danielle is going on the block.

Now I just need to stay off those spoiler blogs before Sunday, so that I can generally be surprised at who she places on the block. So thanks to a kick-ass season so far, bring on the crazy!

Fall Must-See

I just wanted to share some pretty exciting news with you all (and this is just the begining). Thanks to the kick-ass PR department at SVA, the fashion photograph show I'm curating "Click Chic: The Fine Art of Fashion Photography" was just named "fall's must-see show" by Elle Magazine. Elle friggin' magazine. I honestly think I'm glowing.

So mark your calendars, the opening reception is September 10th (6-8pm) and don't forget to pick up the August issue of Elle.
