Join Moby, Shepard Fairey+Me for the Zeitguide

I hope you will take the time this Wednesday, May 6, from 7-9 p.m. to join Moby, Shepard Fairey and yours truly in a panel helmed by our friend Brad Grossman, who’s taken the uber inquisitiveness that made him Brian Grazer’s right hand guide for so many years and in 2008 finally founded the Zeitguide, a multi-media platform that guides a wide swath of industry leaders through leading-edge issues in our constantly changing culture.

The Unstoppable Carine Roitfeld

The best part of doing a feature on Carine Roitfeld? Her rapid-fire thank-you, which came with all the enthusiastic effervescence one expects from this spitfire in stilettos. The following story appeared in the Winter 2013-2014 issue of 7Hollywood Magazine, which featured no fewer than seven covers, including Karl Lagerfeld, Courtney Love, Laetitia Costa, Irina Shayk, Jared Leto, Dakota Fanning—and Carine, as seen as the start of the slide show.

Cat Girls Gone Wild!

This vid birthday card of sorts from my sister Blanca Apodaca and her other half Michael Serwich is a riot. It ran on the “Banana Splits” TV show in the 1960s, probably some time around the year I was born (that would be 1968). […]

A Bazaar Day For The Artist Director

 

 

 

 

Friends at Harper’s Bazaar had their skates on this morning. On the heels of  Michel Hazanavicius beating Martin Scorcese at last night’s Academy Awards for Best Director bragging rights for his equally praised “The Artist,” which took the ceremony’s top honor as Best Film of the year, the magazine unveiled just minutes ago a portfolio appearing in the April issue inspired by the film and created in collaboration with Michel.
