Polaroid Photographer Jeremy Kost Is Hosting A Book Signing In LA

'Fractured'

I have very exciting news to share with you guys today. My very good friend Jeremy Kost is hosting a book signing of his new photography book Fractured at Bookmarc in West Hollywood, CA on Friday and you MUST come out and meet him (folks in NYC can attend Jeremy‘s book signing at Bookmarc at 400 Bleecker St. on October 21). I’ve known Jeremy for years but I’ve been a fan of his Polaroid photography for much longer. He is truly one of my favorite photographic artists and I’m so excited for the release of his new book Fractured. Large scale prints of some of Jeremy‘s images are currently on display at the CALVIN KLEIN COLLECTION in NYC (654 Madison Avenue) until October 27 where a very limited edition of Fractured is being sold. The large scale prints on display at the Calvin Klein Collection are up for auction HERE to partially benefit ACRIA, in conjunction with Paddle 8, in their fight to help those living with HIV/AIDS. Yes, my friend is amazing. Jeremy is graciously sharing the photos featured in the gallery presented here to give you a taste of his work. If you like what you see, you can come out and buy a copy of Fractured and meet Jeremy Kost at his book signing this Friday:


The images shared here are available in the artist’s edition of Fractured which comes with an actual Polaroid photo of your choice (details HERE). Jeremy gave me a large size Polaroid print as a housewarming gift when I moved to LA all those years ago and it has hung in my various homes ever since. He is a very talented photographer and I hope you can come out and meet the man in person. Hopefully I’ll see you at the book signing on Friday!

Sinéad O’Connor Backtracks And Now Denies That Her Memoir Will Expose The ‘Sexual Dirt’ On Everyone She’s Ever Slept With

"The book is a memoir. Not an autobiography."

Earlier today we learned from Sinéad O’Connor herself that she was planning to expose all of the “sexual dirt” on everyone she’s ever slept with in her new memoir which is due for publication in 2016. Shortly after her comment went viral, she posted a message on her official website backtracking from her original claim. She needed a “funny quote” to go along with the press release about her memoir, she explains, so that’s why she decided to lie about all that “sexual dirt” she said she would expose. Um. What the Hell is going on with Sinéad O’Connor these days?! More »

Lena Dunham Wrote About Being Raped In College, And Why It’s More Complicated Than ‘No Means No’

'I feel like there are fifty ways it’s my fault…'

I haven’t picked up Lena Dunham‘s memoir yet, but Not That Kind of Girl is already making headlines for some of its unique subject matter. One particular issue she’s tackling—through her own experiences—is rape, and how to define it. There are many people reading these excerpts, in which she describes a disturbing experience at college (which she comes to classify as rape, so I will too), and they don’t believe that it should be understood as rape. And others are saying it highlights an issue that we have—where if a woman does not expressly say “NO,” consent is assumed. Click inside for more.

More Alive!

The TV Guide

This month, Darion’s mother Janai Mestrovich published her latest book titled The Grandma Boom Chronicles: More Alive at 65! and she graciously sent me an early copy of the book for review. For the past few weeks, I have been spending as much time as possible reading her book and truly enjoying every word written. Janai is a mother first, yes, but she is also an adept educator and author and getting to see the scholastic side to her personality by reading her words has been a delight. I am nearly finished with the book but last night, I spent a bit of time engaged in More Alive at 65! and I feel compelled to share some of my lurve for the book with all of you today. More »
