Beyonce looking good at Grammy's opening 2014

Westporter Nile Rogers up there for highest honor of the night

on
The Grammys were very interesting to watch last night. I was only able to get through the first 2 and 3/4 hours however. Beyonce’s opening number was beyond sexy, beyond provocative … it was cool dark and mysterious. Jay-z came out to finish off the song– “Drunk In Love”. I can say from experience, attending […] [Read More]

Justin Bieber is finally cool ;/

on
I have to admit I’ve never heard him sing, but when I saw that he was arrested for drag racing a yellow Lambo in Miami the other day I thought, “well at least he’s human!” He’s almost cool.

WW or Weird Weather

on
As far as polar vortex’s go, this one’s no-big-deal, sure it’s rare and deadly, but for Westporters it can be a frigidly cold swooshing arctic blast and a great seasonal dynamic. Hot—cold, hot—cold—hot, it can feel like mood swings. Every time I walk outside, I find the climate changed. Warm and balmy with a slight […] [Read More]

The Countdown—C. Karp Jams

on
The great thing about the First Night Celebration in Westport, on New Years Eve, is that it’s an alcohol free event. When I first started going a few years ago I wasn’t so sure about that part of the concept but now I see the greatness of the idea. In contrast: this year I mingled […] [Read More]
