Happy birthday, Archie Panjabi.  You’re on the list of the top ten faces on TV to watch?  I guess they haven’t seen your top-three ass . . .

Look Who’s Competing for Miss Universe Canada

with one comment


It’s “Canada’s Next Top ModelCycle 3 runner-up Linsay Willier!

I was a big fan of Linsay.  While I also adored Maryam and Meaghan, I still wanted Linsay to win because I like to see inclusive runways.  One minute everyone is complaining that there are no black girls on the runways, and the next minute black girls are in — until someone complains that there are no Asian girls on the runway and Asian girls take over the jobs that the black girls were getting, and so on and so on . . .

It’s all kind of annoying.  Why not just cast the girls who possess the skills?  Considering her competition on CNTM, I thought Linsay had the skills.  Nevertheless, she didn’t win.  But maybe she’ll fare a little better at the Miss Universe Canada competition in June.

On that note, have we ever had a First Nations Miss Canada?  If anyone knows, drop me a line in the comments section.

Cee Lo

Happy birthday, Cee Lo.  I love your outfit, but what in Zob’s name is Janice from the Muppets wearing?

Sears to Introduce Attitude Menswear?

with 2 comments

Jay Manuel

A little bird told me that Sears Canada is about to launch Attitude menswear in its nearly 200 retail stores.  Now everyone who reads my blog already knows that Attitude is my favorite line of cheap clothing.  Even better, it’s sold in Sears stores instead of Walmarts or Superstores.  Call me old fashioned, but I don’t like shopping for clothes in the same place that hideous people with horribly-behaved children shop for groceries in flip-flops and pajama pants.  Ugh!

Anyway, I was extolling the virtues of Attitude long before Jay Manuel made his LG Toronto Fashion Week debut as the creative director for the label.  Having the orange and silver fox heading up the label only made me love it more.  I can’t wait to see the clothes when they arrive in stores this autumn.  Hearing that the line may be expanding into menswear makes me even more excited!

If this rumor is true, I hope that the clothes live up to my expectations.  If we’ve learned anything from Joseph Mimran and Peter Nygård, there’s no reason that Canadians can’t compete with the rest of the world on this playing field.

The Jacksons

Happy birthday, Rebbie and La Toya Jackson.  After unexpectedly finding myself rooting for La Toya on the “Celebrity Apprentice,” I’ve decided that the two of you should compete on “The Amazing Race.”  Drop me a line if you need help with your audition video . . .

Gladys Knight & the Pips

Happy birthday, Gladys Knight.  I once had some Pips, too, but after my colonoscopy my doctor decided to remove them . . .

It’s Wear a Gown to Work Day

It’s Wear a Gown to Work Day . . . and no one cares!

I guess that’s okay.  You know, I’m such a trailblazer that I’m often years ahead of the pack.  I’m just going to have to accept the fact that some of my projects are going to take time to gain some speed.  Once Wear a Gown to Work Day gets rolling again, it’s going to have more momentum than Lindsay Lohan’s red-hot career.

I know that this change of attitude might seem alarming after I called everyone in the entire world a bunch of style-impaired, slack-jawed yokels just the other day, but since then I’ve talked to my astrologer and he’s convinced me that when Jupiter moves into Taurus next week, you’ll all rue the day you ignored your dear, old Auntie.

Anyway, I need to get ready for my big day.  I found someone named “FedererFan69” selling this gently-worn Chanel Haute Couture gown on eBay.  It’s going to look great on me!
