Our Version of
Barney’s Version!

Last night we went to the screening of Barney’s Version, starring Paul Giamatti, at AMC Kips Bay Theater, sponsored by the Learning Annex and the Creative Coalition.


We snapped Paul before we watched the Golden Globe-nominated film, based on Canadian Mordecai Richler’s prize-winning comic novel about Barney Panofsky, a seemingly ordinary man who lives an extraordinary life.

The screening was part of the Creative Coalition’s Spotlight Initiative, which highlights independent films to make a positive difference in the world. Creative Coalition CEO Robin Bronk moderated a Q&A.

Producer Robert Lantos told the audience he was inspired to do a movie adaptation of Richler’s novel because he’d been a big fan growing up in Montreal.


Running the World!


Last night we also headed to Buzz’d Media for the book launch party for geostrategist and New America Foundation senior research fellow Parag Khanna’s second book, How To Run The World: Charting a Course to the Next Renaissance, an account of the current global chaos and a road-map for creating a stable world.  He’s here with longtime friend and fellow G’town University alum, 212 Media’s Jeremy Goldberg.

Friends, colleagues, and family members toasted Parag’s book, which comes out today nationwide. Here, architect Nathan Rich, Sythesis’ Ari Wallach, and real estate developer Tucker Reed.

Parag joked that diplomacy is the second oldest profession. His wife, Ayesha Khanna, is flanked by financier Sherban Mach and friend Sidney Kwiram.


50 Cent!


We joined over 100,000 others at the giant Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas last week and snapped MCM Gunnar Optics founder Matt Michelsen and rap star 50 Cent at the CES Central Plaza.
