On Your Toes: Fire Island Deal Of The Day Comments (0)

In 22 years in NYC, I have yet to set foot on Fire Island. Why???

But for those of you who beg, borrow and steal away there often, this looks like a good deal.

ArtFrom a press release:

Book any 2 nights from Sept 12–Oct 15* and receive a 3rd night FREE at The Madison Fire Island Pines... 

With the heat of Summer 2014 subsiding, Fire Island’s peak beauty lies ahead. Travelers in-the-know enjoy the very best of this spectacular season at The Pines’ premier luxury retreat... 

Availability may become limited - so book now! Visit The Madison at www.themadisonfi.com or email inquiries@themadisonfi.com or dial 631-597-6061.

While you're there, the hotel has an exhibition called Stolen Glances by Kyle Froman up (August 30—September 20, 2014) filled with behind-the-scenes shots from the New York City Ballet. Tutu cool!

The pages are especially worth a look if you're a comic strip/sci fi fan...mouse over them to see what number they are.

Chain-Letter-6I've held onto the hastily Xeroxed (and re-Xeroxed...and re-Xeroxed) pages of this 60-page chain letter for over 20 years, at first because it's filled with interesting names and drawings (again, not originals...dammit!) by famous artists, and then later because the very concept of a physical chain letter has become so antiquated.

The letters include everyone from Bette Midler to Goldie Hawn, from the late wife of Ricardo Montalban to JFK's press secretary, from publisher Joni Evans to the Hollywood Reporter's George Christy. To me, it's fascinating.

Check out the pages in the gallery above, and some notes on the pages below...

Amy-Poehler-art-Old-Navy

I usually recoil from art-world satire because it seems to not respect anything about art unless it's a Renaissance painting, but Amy Poehler's take (for Old Navy) is priceless.

I would gladly watch an entire movie with this character. Best outtakes are after the jump...
