As we were saying…

Are you ready to kick up your heels again with Gina Vivinetto’s Greatest Hits?

Let’s push this sucker to 2,000,000.

Diane Keaton’s charming colonial home

Apartment Therapy has some pictures from inside the home of Diane Keaton, one of my favorite Hollywood actresses. Her decor, it appears, is as eccentric as she is. I love it.

Very warm. Very charming. Just like Diane. Favorite Diane Keaton moment? Argh, so hard to pick, but certainly one of them is that bit in 1973’s Sleeper when she and Woody Allen are walking down the long corridor nitpicking at each other.

Happy Anniversary!

It’s Gina Vivinetto’s Greatest Hits’s eight month anniversary! Woo-hoo! Let’s celebrate with a clip from The Flinstones:

This blog is way more popular than I ever thought it would be thanks to you guys.

We’re going to get our 190,000th hit today. Can you believe it?!

Teeny tiny television show interiors

I love Apartment Therapy because it offers great decor posts, links to old magazine archives and strange Flickr galleries like this one where an artist known only as “On The Set” recreates famous American television shows’ interior sets.

Recognize these? (Click on any to enlarge)

The artist behind the “On The Set” series writes that he/she visited Hollywood TV show sets as a kid and though the show’s producers forbade taking pictures, he/she could rush home and recreate the sets using various items including Legos.

Go to the “On The Set” Flickr page to see the sets of Murphy Brown, Three’s Company, Roseanne, Designing Women, and more.

Colorful four room house in Belgium

Speaking of weird architecture: check out this wild four room house in Belgium designed by architects Pieter Peelings and Silvia Mertens of Sculp(It):

Apartment Therapy gives you the specifics and more pics here.

A quick round-up

Here are stories I found interesting and you might, too:

* Wall Street Journal piece on the chemicals in household cleaners.

* Showtime wisely passes on insulting, asinine L-Word spinoff.

* I feel sorry for this Graffiti Girl who’s facing serious hard time. Am I a sap?

* Kooky Cloris Leachman and Gene Hackman had “epic sex”? Weird.

* She’s gonna play Judy Garland?!

* Artist Justine Lai paints realist portraits of herself having sex with U.S. presidents.

* Wow, talk about old meets new: Modernist architect Frank Gehry has been picked to design an Eisenhower monument in D.C.

Thanks to all of you!

Happy Anniversary!

Let’s take a second to acknowledge that it’s GV’sGH six month anniversary. I was hoping for around 70,000 hits today so imagine my surprise (and joy) to note that we’ve had over 85,000 hits!

I’ve picked up a lot of new readers during this last month, which I can only speculate is because of rampant unemployment. Glad to have you here, whatever the reason. Thanks for six great months, everyone!

Woody Allen on life vs. suicide

This is Woody Allen‘s character Mickey Sachs, from the film Hannah and Her Sisters (1986), narrating:

I agree. I’d rather be a part of it.

What a brilliant sequence.

Happy New Year, everyone!

To everyone in the GV’sGH family, Happy New Year!

Yeah, I know that’s the same fireworks snapshot we use to celebrate our monthly anniversaries, but we’re feeling the recession here, too.

Let’s do a bunch of amazing shit in 2009!
