Of course, we already knew that

BusinessWeek ran down its list of the best airports in the world this week. A disproportionate number of top finishers are in Asia, but when it comes stateside, who leads the list? Yup, good ol’ DFW, which is praised for its Southern hospitality, art work and Skylink train, among other amenities. Read all about it here. lomaykaкак определить позицию сайта в...

Don't cry for me, Lincoln Center

 When you work on the lifestyles side of the newspaper business, you deal a lot with publicists of all kinds. A good one can really make your job easier: Setting up interviews, providing quality photography in a timely way, getting you information quickly and correctly … the list goes on. I deal with dozens of publicists on a monthly, perhaps even weekly, basis, and the number who are really good at what they do is not a long list. Eva Chien has been one of the best. She’s my main contact with the Dallas Theater Center, and in the last two years she’s become not just a pleasant colleague, but an actual friend. So when I heard she was leaving the DTC to return to her prior job with Lincoln Center in New York City, I was sincerely saddened.  Then she told me she could get me comps to Broadway shows and I could stay for free at her apartment in Manhattan whenever I wanted. “Are you still here?” I said impatiently. She is until Friday. I’ll be saying goodbye to “Evita” tonight at a going away party her parents’ restaurant in Addison. Such the publicist: Even on the way out, she throws a party. But she will HATE that I posted this — and kill me for running a picture of her.  vzlomshark.ruпродвижение сайтов...

Readers Voice Awards: A supplement

In the name of the daddy, and the boy, and the “holy crap — are those real!” Amen. OK, so you won’t find that prayer from even the most reform branches of scriptural translators. But that doesn’t stop some men from finding religion of a different kind at the gym. So when one clever reader voting for “best place of worship” cast his bread upon the waters of Gold’s Gym (under the concept of “muscle worship”), we had to take time out to give him props, if only in the blog. He has a point: there are plenty in the gay community who put more faith in their workout routines than in an almighty, and probably just as many who give thanks every day to the ones who do. There’s a reason men exploding through their tanktops and Spandex are called “gods.” Gold’s Gym is certainly known for its history of being able to turn a 98-lb. weakling into an Atlas (maybe even with the first name “Zeb”). Whether you’re one of a pantheon or merely an acolyte moved by those who are, we totally get muscle worship. And you don’t even have to wait until Sunday to enjoy...

This is the face of the Readers Voice Awards

It takes a lot of work in a short period of time to put out the Dallas Voice’s annual Readers Voice Awards issue, and most of the responsibility for it falls on this man. After nearly a week of long hours and sleep-deprived nights, this is what an editor looks like. (He didn’t even want me to take the picture, but his resistance was weakened.) Please keep in mind when you pick up tomorrow’s issue that somebody looked like this — all for your reading pleasure....

Straight guys are funny

NASCAR has to be the straightest of sports (sports? they drive in a circle for three hours, for Crissakes!). You wonder why it takes so long for basketball an football players to come out? When’s the last time you saw Boy Butter as a sponsor in the Indy 500? Which is why we got a laugh out of this product tie-in, courtesy of Dale Earnhardt, Jr., one of the princes of NASCAR. Yeah, we realize he means “mo” as in “momentum.” Still, you wonder whether having a gay guy on his pit crew might have given him second thoughts about putting his face next to a long, hard, cream-filled item like this. You go, girl!сайтпродвижение бренда в...
