    September 16, 2013 | 4:43 pm

    Just when I think my dating life cannot get any stranger, it does.  I have been chronicling my dating life for four years.  In that time I have had the most horrific dates ever, along with a long term relationship, and I shared it all.  From the man who arrived to our date drunk... read on

  • Russell Brand, Hugo Boss & Nazi Uniforms

    By Ilana Angel

    I have loved Russell Brand for a long time.  I think he is funny, smart, wise, deep, spiritual, and oddly attractive. He is a bad boy, which is both sexy and intimidating. In the interest of full disclosure, if I could have dinner with any celebrity, he would be my choice. ... read on

    A friend of mine shared this video on Facebook and I have watched it a dozen times, just this morning.  I had no idea who Shane was, but in watching this video I have done a little research and discovered that Shane Koyczan is remarkable.  Watch this  video.  It is important, it is beautiful, and it matters.  Everyone should see it, share it, understand it, and learn from it.

    I am a fan, and I am keeping the faith.

    February 19, 2013 | 2:54 pm

    I have seen a few videos by DJ Lubel and I think he is very funny.  His videos make me laugh, but also make me cringe.  He is talented and when I was sent his latest video this afternoon, I knew I had to share it.  It is a fun take on what it is like for men to date the women of... read on
