#147: Don’t Take Pictures of Your Freaking Flowers

Okay, I’ve been getting complaints. Ho Springs is okay, people have been telling me. But we really love How Not To Act Old and want you to write some new posts instead of just leaving that big honking Ho Springs ad up there day after livelong I’m-so-bored-I’m-going-to-blow-my-brains-out day. All right, not a very effective way […]

Larry David, Style Icon?

Curb Your Enthusiasm‘s Seinfeld Reunion finale may have attracted 98 percent of the viewers in the uncoveted 45 and over demographic. I was watching, though I couldn’t exactly tell you what happened or even whether the episode was any good. I was too busy checking out Larry David’s clothes. That’s right: Larry David is my […]

Sometimes I think the young live in a different world from you and me. Not just, you know, one with lots more sex and lots less confusion over how to turn on the television, but a land where they watch, listen to, and know about people and things hidden to the rest of us. For […]

We’ve been DreamWorked!

It’s official: How Not To Act Old has been optioned by DreamWorks to be a movie or a television show.  This is obviously thrilling news.  I don’t think it matters one bit that my book has no characters, story, or plot: Neither does most of what’s out there! What’s really important is who’s going to […]

Game ON, Chelsea Handler!

So Chelsea Handler, my rival for the title of Bestsellingest Female Humor Writer, has upped the game by posing naked — yes, I mean totally nude, as in without any clothes — for Playboy.  She revealed a Godzilla-sized picture of herself on the magazine’s cover on Leno the other night.  Chelsea is obviously so desperately […]

Happy 60th Birthday, Bruce. I think.

A funny thing happened when I went to Youtube this morning in search of an early Bruce Springsteen video, to post here in celebration of Bruce’s 60th birthday. I expected to find some rocking footage that would bring back the…..well, yes, the glory days of the Bruce I first saw in Milwaukee in 1975, the […]

Love Letter to Grace Coddington

Dear Grace, I just saw The September Issue, R.J. Cutler’s documentary about the making of last September’s issue of Vogue, and I’ve fallen in love with you.  Absolutely head over heels.  Before I count the ways, let me feature a picture of you in all your gorgeousness. Look at the excitement and energy in those […]

I’m Not Old, I’m A Celebrity!

Over at More.com, I opine today about How Not To Act Old in our celebrity-crazed culture. (Step 1: Don’t think there’s anything weird about a celebrity-crazed culture.) But what about the aged celebrities themselves? Which ones are the most successful at Not Acting Old? By Not Acting Old, I don’t mean that you go around […]

#136: Take Off That Store-Boughten Underwear: A Shocking Report from the Land of the Young

Okay, I’m sorry, all you young ‘uns reading this post, but there’s no way for me to tell this story correctly except via an old person-style long and convoluted anecdote. But first, to tantalize you about what’s ahead and to keep you interested, I offer the following visual clue: Now that I have your attention, […]

#134: Don’t Cry For Susan Boyle

Okay, Rolf and I barely had a chance to stretch our legs and catch our breath after a grueling winter spent kissing in the hammock writing How Not To Act Old, The Book, when we find ourselves forced back to active duty, covering the international phenomenon of Susan Boyle. You’d think that a chimpanzee had […]
