Joseph came up with the idea of the show as a means to get his name out and as a way to set aright some common misnomers about fashion, mainly that "it is okay for a dude to sew".

On my iTunes: Keith Urban's Somebody Like You (I just love it!)
Thursday, October 8, 2009
Secondly, this blog will serve to give you information about some help that you may or may not admit that you need: Dating Advice (see figure 2). Did you know The Gazette has a new columnist-duo, Sunny Wheeler and Ron Ruhman (former is a dating vet and latter is a local comedian), who are asking for the privilege to answer all of your dating dilemmas? Don’t be shy, here’s how it works.
1. Figure out your problem. Sunny and Ron, in their own words, “are dedicated to those of you who are dating, looking to date, or like to eat dates.” If you are in any of those categories, it can be inferred that you also suffer from plaguing questions like the following:
“What is first date etiquette?”
“How do I pursue a date without incurring a restraining order?”
“It’s the 21st Century, can we go Dutch yet or what?”
“What exactly does ‘Thanks, I had a great time’ mean?”
Or, “How soon is too soon to elope to Vegas?”
2. Come up with a pen name. Now, based on your dilemma, create a pseudonym for yourself under which you can send your anonymous request for relational salvation. Your name should be made up of a descriptive adjective and a noun of some sort, and note that alliteration is always a nice touch. Here are some examples:
You got dumped by an actor who’s still in love with his ex? Your name is: Hurting in Hollywood. Someone is interested, asks you out, and then never calls again: Confounded Crier works nicely. This can be the fun part in the whole thing.
3. Send your question to email@example.com and wait for advice from the funny yet insightful tag-team, Sunny and ron. Then look to see if your question is published in the next Gazette. Prepare yourself for unexpected answers and honest commentary. Also prepare yourself for some laughs and a little more clarity in this game of love.

Vincent Van Gogh - everyone’s favorite tormented artist, the forgotten in life, memorialized after death genius behind some of the most recognized works of art in the world - is coming to a theater near you! And in IMAX. Forget about The Jonas Brothers in 3D; All the curly locks and brown eyes of Disneydom couldn’t hold a candle to the vivid and almost living masterpieces of Van Gogh (although any gal pre-13 might protest).
Laguna Beach res Greg Macgillivray and his team at MacGillivray Freeman Films is screening Van Gogh: Brush with Genius, today at the Edwards at the Irvine Spectrum at 4:30pm, 6:30pm and 8:30pm. Greg and his Laguna Beach company have been dedicated to the large screen motion picture format since the production of the IMAX® Theatre film, To Fly!, which he co-produced and directed with his partner, the late Jim Freeman in 1976. MacGillivray also worked in Hollywood, directing and photographing for Stanley Kubrick on The Shining, and filming for the Academy Award® nominees Jonathan Livingston Seagull and The Towering Inferno. MacGillivray is well-known in the industry for artistic and technical innovation in the giant format. He has initiated the development of two cameras for the IMAX® format.
The Gazette was invited to the “One Day Family and Friends Screening” (we did an Off the Record piece on Greg back in April 09, you can see it here), so we will be going to the 4:30 today to “Plunge into the heart of Vincent van Gogh’s paintings and retrace the artist’s life as we read his letters and take in the beautiful locations that inspired him.” From what I can gather from the trailer, an amazing French narrator speaks throughout the film as the voice of Van Gogh, giving his opinions on his own work and even his opinions of the people and curators working with his art today. The film looks into the locations that inspired his works, and tries to reveal a part of Van Gogh “far removed from the ‘tragic artist’ image which he is known by.” You can check out the trailer below.
And lastly, a completely unrelated introduction. World, meet Gustavo the Gazette Guardian, a new member to the Gazette team, inducted by myself after a near-theft incident in which 2 boxes of Gazette magazines intended for Jill and Gary, our entertainment writers and the masterminds behind www.TourBusLive.com were presumed missing! It turned out that we merely misplaced them. But so was born this hero.
