My Blog__ Old Chicks

September 07, 2011 | By

In light of Tavi's new online magazine, Rookie, I'd like to talk about one of my favourite old broads, Joan Rivers. Joan is an icon. She's clever, complicated and has a closet full of sequins, furs and oversized jewels. If you've been watching Louie, then you got a taste of Joan's wise words right before Louie CK gets a taste of Joan. If you haven't seen it, do yourself a favour and watch the clip above.

Ready for more Joan? Piece of Work, a documentary about her life and career, will make you laugh and cry. She'll break your heart with clear-eyed introspection and follow it up with a joke that would put my similarly-aged grandmother into cardiac arrest. I recommend watching this movie from a chaise lounge with a tumbler of vodka nearby.

In the meantime, scroll through Advanced Style and call your grandmother. Ladies, the world is not kind to us as we age and we need to stick by our geriatric sisters. Maybe when I'm 60, I'll start an online magazine called Pro. It will feature fashion tips for snowbirds, sex tips for nursing home flings and step-by-step instructions for how to steal from grocery stores and get away with it.
