Perhaps you’ve heard of SUCCESS. Perhaps not. It’s a monthly based in Lake Dallas that positions itself as “the only magazine that focuses on people who take full responsibility for their own development and income.” Well, last night on Jimmy Kimmel Live!, Michael Keaton was being his highly entertaining self, spinning tales about Jack Nicholson, when he stopped down briefly to tell Kimmel that he really enjoyed the profile of him he’d read in SUCCESS. I bring all this to your attention because I knew you’d appreciate it.
The special flight left Virgin’s former home at DFW International Airport and soared high over Dallas for about an hour. (It’s normally a five-minute flight, but Virgin wanted to stretch things out.)Read More
On Friday, Uncle Barky broke the news that Channel 11 morning anchor Brendan Higgins has been charged with disorderly conduct and resisting arrest following an August 6 incident in Aspen, Colorado. The highlight from the police report:Read More
Jerral Jones and his son Stephen are having quite a week. First embarrassing pictures of Jerry taken five years surface. Lesson No. 1: if you’re going to party with strippers, ban all photography. Just to be safe, ban courtroom sketching, too. Then Stephen is caught on video using one of the Cowboys buses to make a beer run, only instead of beer, he picked up a bunch of navel-baring club strumpets. Lesson No. 2: if you’re going on a strumpet run, have the bus pull around back for load in. Gene (Jerry’s wife), Charlotte (Jerry’s daughter), and Karen (Stephen’s wife) must be none too pleased with their men. Here’s the thing about that Cowboys bus:Read More
A good time was had by all, I believe, at last night’s Best of Big D party at the Rustic. DJ Sober and Sam Lao were great. The drinks flowed freely. Much food went into many mouths. And so on and so forth. But I will tell you this: before the front moved through, it was a little steamy. The meteorological conditions occasioned my favorite moment of the night:Read More
After a year-long hiatus, this year we are once again hosting a “Best of Big D” party. It’ll be at the Rustic July 23. You can buy tickets here. For $50, you get adult beverages and food from some of the best restaurants in town. DJ Sober will feed your ears. For another $15, though, you get to stick around for a Jackopierce concert, which starts at 9:30. Me, I will be gone by then. “Why is that?” you ask? Because I have been boycotting Jackopierce since June 1996. Here is a column I wrote for the dearly departed Met on that month:Read More
Hat tip to Central Track for bringing me (and by extension you) this video of Erykah Badu jacking around with a guy doing a standup in New York City. Check out both the Vine and the YouTube versions. Girl was determined to get some play.Read More
The site Celebitchy has the photos. See for yourself how actor Bradley Cooper is dressed to play former Navy SEAL Chris Kyle in director Clint Eastwood’s sure-to-be Oscar bait of a biopic, American Sniper.

You can see a photo here of Jerry Jones and his invited guests, and get a sort of scouting report on what was going on inside. Not pictured are Papa John’s founder John Schnatter and Cowboys running back DeMarco Murray. It all adds up to a murderer’s row of potential irritants.Read More
