Robin Quivers | Organic Diet Secret

robin quivers Robin Quivers | Organic Diet Secret

What I love about Robin Quivers is her never-failing ability to be her own person. As Howard Stern’s longtime radio sidekick, she seems to be the only member of his team who’s able to stand up to the shock jock and speak her mind. She’s also managed to remain interesting in her own right, which isn’t an easy feat in a Stern-dominated world. From racial concerns to body issues, Robin says and does what she wants — even when it comes to food.

After years of pigging out with Howard on Roy Rogers, Robin has discovered the joys of fasting and consuming a plant-based diet. Robin was recently featured on New York Magazine’s website,touting the benefits of her new eating regimen.

Strike a Pose | And Buy a Globe From Madonna

madonna globe auction vanity fair green issue Strike a Pose | And Buy a Globe From Madonna

Are you the planet’s biggest Madonna fan? Do you want the world in the palm of your hands? Have you always wanted to play The Pop Star and The Photographer in the privacy of your own home? If you answered yes to any/all of the above and you have a spare $13,000+ lying around, you could be a contender for the globe adorning the front cover of Vanity Fair’s May 2008 Green Issue.

The Material Girl’s autographed orb is being auctioned off on eBay to the highest bidder, with 100% of the proceeds going to Raising Malawi. London-based designer Robbie Doig spent 10 days constructing the giant globe from plaster and marble with a recyclable polystyrene core. The four feet wide, 80 pound globe was suspended from the ceiling of Los Angeles’ Smashbox Studios for the cover shoot: Madge struck a pose while world renowned photographer Steven Meisel shot the singer from all angles. Afterwards, Madonna signed the globe and drew a heart around Africa, the motherland of her son, David Banda.

Some Brits Unhappy with Proposed Eco Towns

judi dench unhappy uk eco towns Some Brits Unhappy with Proposed Eco Towns

It sounds like a good idea. Carbon-neutral “eco-towns” that address the dual issues of climate change and affordable housing. So, why is the British government receiving so much flak from celebrities like Judi Dench and er, Tim Henman’s parents? Well, as they say in real estate, it’s all about location, location, location.

Whittled down from 57 sites, the fifteen short-listed locations include: Bordon, Coltishall, Curborough, Elsenham, Ford in West Sussex, Continue Reading / Additional Photos / Videos

Martinez | A Chemical Imbalance (re:connected)

martinez chemical imbalance re connected Martinez | A Chemical Imbalance (re:connected)

Review by Peter Nicholson, BPM Magazine

Longtime producer Martin Swanstein comes with his second full-length effort after scores of singles for labels ranging from Chicago’s Guidance to Copenhagen’s 3rd Floor Records. Eschewing the concept album approach some dance producers attempt when taking on the full-length format, Martinez sticks to what he does best — compressed, minimal techno — even sticking to the script by mixing the tracks into one another seamlessly.

Rachel Bilson Fights Dryer Abuse

rachael bilson line dry Rachel Bilson Fights Dryer Abuse

I know a dryer abuser. (No names — but if you’re reading this, you know who you are.) This person will use a kitchen towel to dry the dishes and then throws the towel in the dryer rather than letting it hang to air dry (for which there is more than enough time between meals!). This person has also been known to be running late for work, and rather than whip out the iron to press a shirt, simply sprays it with water and tosses it into the dryer.

Crazy, I know. But I’m not kidding.

I’ve suggested that this is an unnecessary waste of energy (and money), but my words have fallen on deaf ears. I was thinking of staging an intervention when I read about a new campaign from Australian company Hills.

Want to get up close with a great-white man-eater in “Jaws Lake”? Or test your physical and emotional strength by doing some extreme stunts on “Fear Factor Live”? (It’s worth eating the animal entrails, folks; a former contestant won George Clooney). Or scare yourself silly in the middle of 50-foot fireballs and exploding seaplanes in “Waterworld – A Live Sea War Spectacular”? If any of the above fits your definition of “fun”, read on…

On Saturday April 26th, Universal Studios Hollywood is celebrating Earth Day with a “free, family-friendly, eco-fair”. Continue Reading / Additional Photos / Videos

Vanity Fair | The Green Issue Pushes Us To Go Green

vanity fair green issue1 Vanity Fair | The Green Issue Pushes Us To Go Green

As of this writing, Vanity Fair’s Green Issue has yet to hit the newsstands. But seeing as how they’ve handily provided an (aptly eco) online version, here are some early highlights. The video introduction from editor Graydon Carter turns out to be harder to play than it is to justify their “green” cover girl Madonna. After 72 attempts, I finally gathered the wherewithal to seek it out on YouTube Continue Reading / Additional Photos / Videos
