I'm pretty sure this guy has one of the best jobs in the world. Andrew Evans is the "Digital Nomad" at the National Geographic Traveler. He is currently on tour of Western Canada, where I am headed for the holidays. Behold the spectacular beauty of British Columbia & Alberta.

Last week I had the great please of spending time and talking art with photographer Gregory Colbert. Seeing his photos up close was a spectacular experience, as was his last exhibit "Ashes and Snow". Take a moment with the video of these incredible images.

Alright, Ladies. Exactly how naughty or nice have you been this year? Because Christie's Elizabeth Taylor Collection goes on auction this week, with the highlight of her legendary jewels tomorrow, December 13th. I implore you to browse through the sparkling catalogue. Outstanding.

To quote a recent tweet - "I always thought I'd be older by now." Indeed. The older I get, the more I realize we are just various shades of our teenage selves. Evolved, experienced and wiser, certainly (hopefully, really), but that suppressed 17-year-old self can still appear at a moments notice. Since we are all charged with the task of ever increasing responsibility, we just mask things better. This can resurface two ways in "adulthood", which I think is perfectly summed up in the recent trailers of "Young Adult" (penned by the fabulous Diablo Cody) and "Carnage" (based on the fantastically satirical Tony-winning play "God of Carnage"). With the holiday season upon us, I am seeing these flare-ups in spades. Never a dull moment here in NY.

Today, December 8th, marks the 21-year anniversary of the death of John Lennon. I am sure uptown, the Imagine memorial is flooded with flowers and songs, much like it is every year here in NY - a wonderful, heartfelt tribute. Let's flashback to that first Ed Sullivan appearance in 1964, shall we?

The french film "The Artist" is getting a lot is buzz this season. The twist? It is a silent film. With a 96% positive rating on Rotten Tomatoes, I think it is time to get to the theatre asap. *Update* It was fabulous! Run to the theatre!
Just when you thought all of the holiday commercials have become predictable, retail giant Harvey Nichols comes out with this hilarious ad based on the infamous Walk of Shame. Don't pretend it hasn't happened to you.

I clearly have Woody Allen on the brain, after watching his documentary earlier this week, and am thus inspired to share opening scenes from two of his movies, "Midnight in Paris" and "Manhattan", which also happen to be my two favorite Cities in the world. One, I am fortunate enough to live in, the other I visit as often as possible. Enjoy! Savourer!

In case you missed it, I highly recommend watching the wonderful new documentary on Woody Allen's career
by filmmaker Robert Weide, who followed the notoriously private film legend over a year and a half to create the ultimate film biography. You can now stream it online.
