Empire State Building to ‘Glitter’ for Mariah Carey

mariah carey

This weekend the Empire State Building is going to lit in pink, lavender, and white. This is because the largest phallus in New York state is honouring (wait for it…drum rolls)…Mariah Carey for a day.

According to a press release, that’s apparently the color ‘motif’ of the new album E=MC², it’s also the colour of dreams, delicate flowers, and the aura of unicorns — which seem to appear in literally every single one of her music videos.

Mariah herself will be turning the Empire State Building to those three colours, giving it the adorable, soft glow that way-too-modernist skyscraper has needed all along at 1 pm tomorrow.

Blog to Death?

A few weeks ago, Russell Shaw, a prolific blogger on technology subjects who died at 60 of a heart attack. In December, another tech blogger, Marc Orchant, died at 50 of a massive coronary. A third, Om Malik, 41,survived a heart attack in December.

According to this article by New York Times, many bloggers are suffering from sleep disorders, exhaustion and other types of non-stop strain of producing blog entries.

To make you feel better, it also says “To be sure, there is no official diagnosis of death by blogging, and the premature demise of two people obviously does not qualify as an epidemic. There is also no certainty that the stress of the work contributed to their deaths. But friends and family of the deceased, and fellow information workers, say those deaths have them thinking about the dangers of their work style.”

So I guess we don’t have to worry, yet.

Movie Chic,Movie Style: Put his movie into a bookshelf

We all know Oscar winning director Anthony Minghella has just passed away recently. Surprisingly two weeks before his surgery, he left a testament wishing Shekhar Kapur who’s also his good friend to direct a short film that he’s already written.

Who can forget his “The English Patient” which won 9 Oscars back in 1997 (which is still a record to date). The way he portrayed the beauty of women is just ravishing (remember how he used the part between a woman’s throat and collar bone to represent a map of men’s desire?) It was poetry.

Also, his first movie Truly Madly Deeply back in 1990 was on both the charts of most popular and least popular in the UK. As he said, the best movies are between the best and the worst

Shekhar Kapur is now taking over Minghella’s New York I Love You which stars Scarlet Johansson, Natalie Portman, Woody Allen, Kevin Bacon, and more. While some of the segments have begun filming, Minghella had not gotten a chance to cast or shoot the segment he had written. The New York piece is by the producers of Paris Je t’aime, this time having each person to direct a 5 minute film to portray their love towards New York.

New York I love you
