In this blog, we'll discuss what credit scores are, what the numbers mean and what you can expect to happen at the dealership. What is a Credit Score? We've all heard the gimmicky car sales ads saying, "Good Credit? Bad Credit? No Credit?

Once upon a time, in the ’90s, the rock star Melissa Etheridge had a house above the legendary Chateau Marmont in Los Angeles—and arguably the better parties happened around her pool. Yes, the famous lesbians of that era hung out together, Etheridge recalled to The Daily Beast laughing—herself, k.d. lang, Rosie O’Donnell , and Ellen DeGeneres : all famous and out, or on the verge of fame and headline-making comings-out. “A crazy thing happened,” recalled Etheridge. “My partner at the time (Julie Cypher, who she was with from 1990 to 2000), had been married to a young ’80s movie star (Lou Diamond Phillips, from 1987 to 1990). And so she knew that whole young Hollywood set: Dermot Mulroney, Catherine Keener, Brad Pitt , Julia Roberts. I had met Rosie through VH1 (where O’Donnell worked before starring in A League of Their Own ), and Ellen through a celebrity chef we both knew. I met k.d. lang at the first Grammys I went to.

So you have probably heard that there’s a new Fletch movie out, which revives the wisecracking , investigative journalist of Gregory Mcdonald’s mystery novels for our wonderful modern age. You know, the character originally made famous by Chevy Chase? In Fletch, the 1985 comedy that’s arguably the former SNL star’s greatest onscreen moment not involving a golf club? And 1989’s Fletch Lives, the sequel that’s…let’s say “slightly less beloved” than the original? This latest misadventure stars Jon Hamm , an inspired choice to take up the mantle of I.M.
