Chill Bill: Ambassador of Fun

By Randy Mastronicola Vodka, fun and Bill Murray—it’s easy to see the connection there, but why Slovenia Vodka? Bill told us recently, “When I drink Slovenia Vodka, I feel like I just had a facial. It literally opens up my eyes and spreads my eyelids farther apart, leaving me with enhanced vision and increased wisdom.” Slovenia Vodka has received accolades, and is recognized as a legitimate player in the increasingly over-populated celebrity spirits [...]

The Whiskey and Wisdom of Bob Dylan

By Randy Mastronicola Bob Dylan is a musical icon. He is one of the most influential and groundbreaking artists in recorded music history. What most people do not know is that he is also a metalwork artist with his own brand of whiskey. The Bob Dylan musical dossier is, of course, legendary.

Rob Riggle: Locked in and Loaded

By Joe Bosso, Portraits by Brett Erickson ROB RIGGLE reminds me of one of those “hustle athletes.” The ones who frequently get taken for granted. They are workmanlike, yeomen if you will, and they play their roles effectively without a lot of flash. They are integral players on championship teams, but remain in the shadows compared to the superstars. Even some mega-stars in that category are unique. They surprise you with how they [...]

Mario Lopez & Oscar De La Hoya: Get Their Tequila On

By Joe Bosso, Portraits by Amber Asaly WE MET with Messrs. Mario Lopez and Oscar De La Hoya at Mario’s handsome hacienda in the hills above Los Angeles this past March.

Mario and Oscar have an easy rapport, as old friends do, and they shared their excitement about their tequila brand, Casa Mexico, with new and old friends alike. [...]

By Joe Bosso, Portraits by John Russo You might think that Dita Von Teese would recoil in shocked indignation before administering a swift slap across the face – or perhaps dispatching an even more decisive knee elsewhere – to any uncouth oaf foolish enough to refer to her as a “stripper.” After all, Von Teese is the cinch-waisted reigning queen of modern-day burlesque, whose performance style recalls trailblazing entertainers like Gypsy Rose Lee [...]
