East Canyon Hotel + Spa in Palm Springs

As a representative of the East Canyon Hotel & Spa, one of the great job perks is the occasional chance to stay there and enjoy the amenities. It truly affords me the chance to unwind at my own pace and make friends in a light, unforced setting. Richard knows what the guest needs to feel comfortable, and his eye for detail can be seen everywhere, from the Gilchrist & Soames bath kit, to the fresh, billowing down comforters! The policy of non-optional clothing also strikes the right tone for me to feel at home, just what I need to recharge!

Marine Biology

Caviar in skincare

When you consider the harsh environment in which arctic marine life thrives, it's no wonder the biology is rich with oils and biochemicals that make scientists' heads spin. We're already seeing applications of things like marine Omega-3 fatty acids -- in high-performance skin care products, believe it or not! http://freyaskinca re.com  (Dec 19, 2010 | post #1)

Great birthday party ideas for kids in L.A.

Here’s a great resource local to L.A. for “in-home” birthday party ideas for children: http://losangeles. cbslocal.com/top-l ists/10-%E2%80%9Ci n-home%E2%80%9D-ki d%E2%80%99s-birthd ay-party-ideas/ I have done the last on the list - I had Elise from We Adorn You (http://weadornyou .com/) to paint at the Halloween party thrown by my pre-teen twins. Everyone loved it and the photos make for beautiful memories. Elise is a professional with over a dozen years of experience, her work is amazingly high quality, she uses hypo-allergenic materials and she does individuals, groups, parties, and major events. Recommend!  (Nov 5, 2010 | post #1)

Joaquin Phoenix

Phoenix's Rep Denies Poe Reports

No matter whether Joaquin Phoenix plays Poe, it's sad to see everyone giving Daniel Stashower credit for a book that is not original. There were a number of books in the 19th century about the murder and Poe (many of them also titled "The Beautiful Cigar Girl"). In the 1970s, two excellent books came out about the Mary Rogers case. One by Raymond Paul called "Who Murdered Mary Rogers" and one is by Amy Srebnick, titled "The Mysterious Death of Mary Rogers". Paul figured out a possible solution to the case that makes a lot of sense. There is also a good graphic novel by Rick Geary called "The Mystery of Mary Rogers" which would make a great film. Stashower just came afterwards and reprinted what was already written, and certainly his material is not filmworthy. Also odd to hear the sound designer talk about creating sound for NY in 1954 considering Poe died in 1849.  (Mar 15, 2010 | post #1)

Joaquin Phoenix - Phoenix Comes Out of Retirement to Play...

Something fishy... the Indian sound designer talking about creating soundscapes for 1854 New York would be all fine and great if this is a ghost story, because Poe died in 1849! The Mary Rogers case is really interesting - I read a book about it written by Amy Srebnick. It was the first real tabloid murder in the United States, and the only real murder that Poe investigated. It also is interesting from a feminist perspective as it was the first real public exploitation case - no attention was paid to Mary Rogers' life, but a lot of attention was brought to her death and mutilation. She was depersonified in the process. The Daniel Stashower book is just a rehashing of prior research and would make a terrible movie - I doubt the script is based on it. I hope this film is being made, whether or not it stars Joaquin Phoenix - because it's a great story.  (Mar 15, 2010 | post #1)
