No shade, but seeing Tatum O'Neal on Arthritis Today while waiting for my massage really made me feel decrepit. I think I caught arthritis just holding the magazine.

 
What Famous Person, Character Or Event Have You Been Most Shocked To Discover A Younger Person Had Never Heard Of? Comments (0)

I got the ball rolling on my personal Facebook page, and I invite you to join in. One—of many—that came to mind is that when I was working for Bethenny Frankel and Valerie Harper's cancer diagnosis was a topic, none of the twenty-somethings around me knew who she was.

This in spite of the fact that Bethenny looks like Rhoda's love child.

So who or what have you mentioned to a younger crowd, only to be mortified by the blank looks you received in return?

Milo Yiannopoulos proves again what a manic douchebag he is in a uniquely unappealing interview about his trolldom. Must-see, even if it's hard to watch. These people think they're telling the truth when they say nobody likes Amy Schumer and anyone who admits it is made to feel like a bigot ...

Jose & Slam Assert Their Legacy—And Madonna's—At TRUTH OR DARE Screening In NYC Comments (0)

Last night capped off a week of Madonna-themed festivities. Who knew Madonna's movies would enjoy such a resurgence?

Okay, it was only for a week, only at Metrograph in NYC and some of her movies are still crappy, but it was truly fun seeing some of her better work on the big screen (Dick Tracy) and especially deciding some of her lesser work isn't really that bad after all (Who's That Girl). A technical snafu (Chinese peony powder on the reel?) led to Body of Evidence being canceled in spite of a lot of tickets being sold, and I then missed Dangerous Game, not wanting to hang out. But both have been rescheduled.

Best of all was the Truth or Dare run—or should I say is, since it has been extended for another week at Metrograph, through September 7. Screen Shot 2016-09-01 at 4.04.56 PM

I saw Truth or Dare at MoMA (with Madonna in attendance and Joe Berger moderating an Alek Keshishian/Vincent Paterson/Jose Gutierez/Salim “Slam” Gauwloos Q&A), at Metrograph (with Chelsea Handler moderating an Alek Keshishian Q&A) and—last night—saw it a third time, again at Metrograph, with Dance Films Association's Galen Bremer moderating a Q&A with Gutierez and Gauwloos.

IMG_9190*Bremer with the featured guests last night: Slam & Jose!

Seeing the film over and over has beaten it into my head, and allowed me to note details I never would have seen without the repetition. (Jack Larson is is seen around the time Madonna gags over Kevin Costner?!) Best of all the Q&As have allowed some of the creatives to speak eloquently about what is probably Madonna's most important film. (Desperately Seeking Susan remains my fave.)

IMG_9205*Winner of the best T-shirt of the night ...

Jose and Slam were wonderfully warm in their chat after the film, with Slam making sure Jose got credit for some of the choreography in “Like a Virgin” and “Vogue” on Blond Ambition and each o them responding candidly to a question about millennials who don't think Madonna did anything. (Don't miss that one!)

They also plugged the outstanding doc they're in that's been a film-fest fave, Strike a Pose; seek that out whenever and wherever you can.

Keep reading for all of the Q&A with Jose and Slam, minus only about 30 seconds of one of Jose's answers in the middle ...
