February 22, 2016

  (Trump’s phone rings, and he answers) Hello, person who loves me.  Build that wall. Ban Muslims. Carry guns. Repeal Obamacare. Boycott Megyn Kelly’s show. Wear my hats and tee shirts. Vote for me. Make America great again.  Hey Donald, Yeezy here. So I heard that you said you were the most popular person who […]

  Ari Seth Cohen is a stalker, of the finest kind.  For some years, he has been following people on the streets of New York, and asking them if he can take their photos.  His motives are simple: to find ordinary people of extraordinary style.  Given that we are talking about New York, here, and […]

Kanye, Kats and Kontroversy

October 27, 2014

Let’s be clear, right off the bat: This is neither a post about cats nor about Kanye.  This is, however, a post about what happens once one writes a blog post that may be less-than-favorable, albeit satiric, about American icons. Let’s also be clear about something else: Life in the Boomer Lane is non-aggressive to […]

A favorite activity of celeb mags, when they aren’t detailing Taylor Swift’s boyfriend du jour or the imminent break up and/or marriage of Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie, is to haul out photos of older actresses and to shriek “More beautiful than ever!” “Never ages!” “What is her Secret?” “These Older Actresses Get Hotter Every […]

We came of age at a time when society seemed to be redefining, not only the roles of women, but of itself.  We were young when, for the first time in living memory, it was youth who toppled a president and ended a war.  When the modern women’s liberation movement began. When Roe v Wade […]
