West added that there is still hope for a Futurama DVD project of some kind, as had been rumored before.
The science fiction oriented Futurama ran from 1999 to 2003 on Fox, and was created by Simpsons mastermind Matt Groening. West voiced the lead character Fry. Though it never matched the success of The Simpsons, the show continues to have a very loyal following. We'll be sure to keep you updated on any new word of further Futurama projects.
No Doubt's Tony Kanal will launch his own Kingsbury Studios label this spring with the debut album from reggae artist Elan. Due May 23, "Together As One" features the Gwen Stefani duet "All Nighter" plus collaborations with Assassin, Tami Chynn, Sly & Robbie and Cutty Ranks as well as Kanal himself, Billboard.com can reveal.
Kanal first saw Elan performing with the Wailers in 1998 and tells Billboard.com, "I, along with everyone in the audience, was amazed to see this kid do justice to Bob [Marley]'s vocals." The pair was introduced but didn't find time to begin collaborating until several years later. "It wasn't until 2003 that Elan and I had the chance to get in the studio and start writing together," he says. "He proved himself to be a great songwriter and an amazing vocalist."
Elan and Stefani previously collaborated on a cover of Bryan Ferry's "Slave to Love," which Kanal produced for the "50 First Dates" soundtrack.
Kingsbury Studios is not exclusively distributed by any major, but in the case of Elan's record, Kanal says, "Interscope was a great match because they have a history of breaking one-of-a-kind, unique artists like him."
A three-track single led by the Assassin collaboration "Girl" is out now; Elan will be on the road with UB40 this spring. As for Kanal, he says, "In between just starting the new No Doubt record and collaborating with Gwen for her next solo outing, I always have my ears and eyes open for new artists."
Rolling Stone contributor Mark Binelli wrote, "Doherty kicked off the Q&A by snorting some heroin. "Over the next three hours, Doherty will also smoke crack, shoot heroin and take an 'ecstasy' pill.
He offers me heroin and ecstasy but not crack. I decline. "The more drugs Doherty does, the more he seems to relax. He never becomes incoherent, though occasionally he seems confused." Meanwhile, the troubled rocker has blamed his celebrity status for his drug addiction.
Pete who was sentenced to a 12-month community order and a drug rehabilitation programme last month after a drug possession conviction maintains he will stay clean with an anti-heroin implant.
"If I was not famous then I would not have the extremes, the corruptness and fortune that led me there in the first place," Doherty said.
"I'm not going to make light of the fact that I've been given a great chance, and take crack and heroin. But I want to start a drugs-free life. I wasn't much of a junkie anyway," he added.

oh and the article is here, if anyone cares to read it.
Jennifer Aniston has hit out at reality TV for breeding a culture unnaturally obsessed with the lives of the rich and famous.
The actress, whose own private life has been under intense public scrutiny since her high-profile split from husband Brad Pitt last year, insists the fascination with celebrity gossip is sickening.
And she is so fed up with the situation, she refuses to watch TV anymore.
The former Friends star says, "What happened to a great half-hour sitcom? It's all Dancing With The Stars! Knitting With The Stars, Building A Home With The Stars, Living In The Homes Of Stars!
"And then the ripping people to shreds. Humiliation. Degradation. What is going on? There's so much instant gratification, and we want it. It's just bizarre."
"I don't watch TV anymore. Nothing. I have no interest in that idol s**t. Unfortunately the world is in such a state with this (Iraq) war and everything else that it's easier to look at the triteness of a celebrity break-up. It's like, 'Ahh, relief.'"
"It's an escape, rather like a daytime soap opera. There's nothing left to talk about and I'm just sick of everything about myself."
EDIT: Quotes are from her recent Vogue interview.
Actor Samuel L. Jackson has signed on to narrate an upcoming spoof of the Oscar-winning documentary "March of the Penguins" with an all-star supporting voice cast, independent studio ThinkFilm said on Friday.
"Farce of the Penguins," mixing archival wildlife footage with an R-rated screenplay written and directed by comedian Bob Saget, is aimed for a late-summer theatrical release, ThinkFilm spokesman Alex Klenert said.
In press materials, ThinkFilm described "Farce of the Penguins" as the story of "one penguin's search for love while on a 70-mile (112-km) trek with his libidinous buddies on their way to a hedonistic mating ritual."
Saget will supply the voice of several characters, including the lovelorn penguin at the center of the story, with Tracy Morgan, Lewis Black and Mo'Nique as some of his pals.
Saget, who hosted the popular TV show "America's Funniest Home Videos" for several years after starring on family sitcom "Full House" from 1987 to 1995, also has rounded up a group of well-known friends for cameo voice roles in the film. They include Jason Alexander, James Belushi, Norm Crosby, Whoopi Goldberg, Gilbert Gottfried, Jon Lovitz, Norm Macdonald and Abe Vigoda.
Jackson, an Oscar nominee for his role in "Pulp Fiction," will narrate the picture, a takeoff on the French-made nature film that became worldwide box office hit and won the Oscar for best documentary.
The original film, narrated by actor Morgan Freeman for the U.S. release, chronicled the journeys of emperor penguins across the frozen wasteland of Antarctica to mate, lay their eggs and bear their young.
Saget said he got the idea for the film while watching the original "March of the Penguins" at a friend's house.
"I couldn't stop doing the voice-overs of the penguins, reminiscent of when I did those animal voices on that video show back in the day," he said.
Privately owned ThinkFilm also was a distributor behind the Oscar-nominated documentary "Murderball" and the film featuring Saget and other comics performing various renditions of the off-color "Aristocrats" joke.
Wouldn't it be better as "March of the Mothafuckin' Penguins"?
Nick Lachey's New Album Is Inspired by Jessica Simpson
Nick Lachey recorded his confessional first single “What's Left Of Me” on the same day Jessica Simpson told him their marriage was over. Lachey was planning on spending last year's Thanksgiving holiday with his wife in Texas, until he received a phone call from her telling him she was ending their relationship.
He says the song was recorded, "The day before Thanksgiving, which was basically the day that Jessica told me she wanted to get a divorce."
The star has put his feelings about the split into his new as-yet-untitled album, which is set to be released on May 23. He says the highly personal album "is kind of a journal of the last year of my life."

U.S. trashy tabloid Star magazine recently anointed Demi Moore with child, and speculation about the 43 year-old's possible pregnancy has once again heated up.
Now, the Evening Standard in the U.K., a much more respected publication, has also proclaimed Moore pregnant.
Quite simply put, the paper says,
"Demi Moore is pregnant again - at the age of 43.
The Hollywood star and 'toy boy' husband Ashton Kutcher, 28, are said to be expecting their first child together at the end of the summer."
Congratulations to the happy couple!
"I’m trying to work on some lyrics for my next album in my free time," Lohan said. "It’ll be a little different to the last one – I’m starting recording next month."

Trouble for Scarlett Johansson & Josh Hartnett?
By Jill Atkins
Mar 25, 2006
Scarlett Johansson and Josh Hartnett are a super cute couple but that might not be enough to keep the two Hollywood stars together. There is now speculation of a split - though it is fairly new - as earlier reports still had the couple in love.
Trouble In Paradise?
Trouble In Paradise?
But a report from TMZ details that Scarlett was out and about at Hollywood hot spot Tokio with friends.
The web site reports that noticeably missing was boyfriend Josh Hartnett. Scarlett was low-keying it, partially covering her beautiful face with a hoodie.
So, is the relationship kaput?
Rumors have it that he called it quits. Whoa.
Late last month In Touch Weekly reported that Josh had presented his buxom 21-year old girlfriend with a platinum and diamond ring on the big day as the two shared a $1,000 bottle of champagne at the LA restaurant L'Orangerie.
Denials? Reps? Nothing yet.
Could be b.s. but who knows???
Update : I also found this on AOL AIM PAGE and another news site but it is probably wrong.
A judge has issued a temporary restraining order requiring David Hasselhoff to stay away from his estranged wife, according to court papers unsealed this week.
Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Mark A. Juhas signed the order March 6 ordering the former "Baywatch" star to stay at least 100 yards from actress Pamela Bach except for "peaceful contacts related to court ordered visitation" of one their two teenage daughters.

It seemed like the perfect gimmick: a celebrity porn star would launch her own wine, with her alluring picture on the label. Savanna Samson did just that, but when it received a score of 90 to 91 out of 100 by wine guru Robert Parker, the project became serious.
It turns out Samson, the star of The New Devil in Miss Jones, has produced an exceptional wine, becoming the toast of two industries: wine-making and pornography.
"I never wanted to just do gimmick. That would just happen with me being a porn star, me having a photographer shoot the label, how risque could I get on the label - all those things," Samson, the stage name for 31-year-old Natalie Oliveros, said in an interview.
The seriousness of the idea was lining up a respected wine maker. So she convinced Italy's Robert Cipresso - also a vintner to the Vatican - to join the project.
Samson went to Tuscany and tasted dozens of Cipresso's Italian-grown varieties, then she selected a mix of 70 percent Cesanese, 20 percent Sangiovese and 10 percent Montepulciano and ordered over 400 cases.

Is it newsworthy? Ofcourse not! Unless new worthiness is wrapped in an androgynous, sexy-ugly, beautifully strange (at times almost perfect looking!), sometimes creepy, sometimes incredibly hot, walking talking Irish Sex called Cillian Murphy.
I'm sorry I'm just jonesing for the "his wife is so "irish looking" posts (pic) & (pic2) & (pic 3?) and her "art" (pic) involving placards and inappropriately placed deodorant bottles posts of old.
Anyway, I find him incredibly attractive sometimes like in RED EYE (PIC) and incredibly not other times - Like in BOP. (PIC)
But in the top photo he is "sex". And I like his song. And I'm sick of Jake G. and other (IMHO) boring American waspy dudes. Sorry!
FYI... things endorsed by anyone named "Dorky Crystal" are *always* a good thing.

Singer Buck Owens, the flashy rhinestone cowboy who shaped the sound of country music with hits like “Act Naturally” and brought the genre to TV on the long-running “Hee Haw,” died Saturday. He was 76.
Owens died at his home, said family spokesman Jim Shaw. The cause of death was not immediately known. Owens had undergone throat cancer surgery in 1993 and was hospitalized with pneumonia in 1997.
His career was one of the most phenomenal in country music, with a string of more than 20 No. 1 records, most released from the mid-1960s to the mid-1970s.
They were recorded with a honky-tonk twang that came to be known throughout California as the “Bakersfield Sound,” named for the town 100 miles north of Los Angeles that Owens called home.
“I think the reason he was so well known and respected by a younger generation of country musicians was because he was an innovator and rebel,” said Shaw, who played keyboards in Owens’ band, the Buckaroos. “He did it out of the Nashville establishment. He had a raw edge.”

No stranger herself to eBay auctions, Kristin Cavallari’s former SUV is now up for auction on eBay. The vehicle was featured on the Laguna Beach reunion, when it received a makeover.
The auction page says it’s her “infamous white jeep on the show,” although it’s actually a 1994 Isuzu Trooper. However, it’s been made over by MTV. Among the upgrades, according to the seller: “The Laguna Beach logo is stiched into the car’s wheel cover,” the front seat has a “video screen and DVD player,” and there’s “a video game console (play station) in the back.”
The owners say they won the car in an auction and are now selling it as-is because they live in New York and don’t drive it; they promise to send the winner “a copy of the title to the car that lists Dennis Cavallari as the previous owner.”
As of 11 p.m. ET on Friday, there’s only been one bid, and it’s for $11,000. The auction ends Sunday night.

Nicole Richie is addicted to fast food - especially burritos.
The 'Simple Life' star, who has been at the centre of speculation she has an eating disorder for months, says she's a sucker for the spicy Mexican fayre and any junk food in general.
She confessed to Tatler magazine "I'll pretty much eat anything.
"I'm a big Taco Bell fan, a real fast-food eater. I don't have the highest standards when it comes to food.
"We eat dinner out every night because none of us cooks."
It has been rumoured that Tina Turner is being lined up for the theme song of 007's next outing Casino Royale.
Meanwhile, Pierce Brosnan fans continue their campaign to have his successor Daniel Craig's Casino Royale boycotted.

March 25, 2006 -- NICOLE Kidman was well aware that Tom Cruise was using a private detective to wiretap her phones during their 2001 divorce. Kidman hired private eye Richie Di Sabatino, who told Page Six last week, "We swept her phones and put on an encryption device, so she couldn't be wiretapped . . . We tried to keep one step ahead." But Kidman knew that Cruise's private detective, Anthony Pellicano, was a resourceful opponent. One pal said: "During her divorce, she would talk to friends on the phone and every couple of minutes break into the conversation and say, 'So, Tom, are you listening,' or 'Am I saying what you want me to say, Tom?' She knew he was either tapping her phone or trying to. She was no dummy. She not only knew about it but taunted Tom." In fact, Pellicano may have been successful in his phone snooping. Kidman has been questioned by the FBI in the Pellicano investigation because the feds found a recording of her talking to Cruise in computers they seized from Pellicano's office in 2002. Di Sabatino suggests the tape was from Cruise's phone.
Rapper COOLIO is planning to take SEAN COMBS on in the kitchen with a new cookery show. As rap mogul and entrepreneur Combs prepares to launch his new reality TV series COOKING SHOWDOWN next month (APR06), GANGSTA'S PARADISE hitmaker Coolio is planning his own culinary special. But, while Combs will invite celebrity pals to cook up treats on his series, Coolio is planning to do all the work himself. He says, "This won't be your average cooking show - it'll be Coolio with food. I'll be cooking, talking, rapping, dancing and singing. "There will be a four-piece band, a DJ, and strippers - all in the kitchen. I'm going to change the way they do cooking shows." Coolio came up with the idea for his own TV show after years of perfecting his culinary skills. He adds, "I love to cook, and I'm pretty damn good at it. My enchiladas cannot be beat, my fried chicken in on top, my spaghetti will kick your spaghetti's a**, and I can put every Chinese food restaurant out of business with my egg rolls."
This beats 30 Minute Meals for sure.

BAKERSFIELD - The 26-year-old Bakersfield woman who starred on the VH-1 reality series, 'Flavor of Love' has been fired from her substitute teaching job.
Brooke Thompson, went by the name 'Pumkin' while on the dating show which was designed to find a girlfriend for 'Flava-Flave' of the rap group 'public enemy'.
Officials with the Kern High School District say Thompson was informed on Monday her services as a sub were no longer needed.
She had been working at several campuses within the district.
District officials said their decision had nothing to do with her performance on the show, but she was too much of a distraction for the students.
Unlike regular teachers, substitutes can be let go because they don't have contracts.
“We had kids that were sticking their heads in the door just to sneak a look at her and that kind of craziness that was just disruptive to the learning process,” according to John Tevis with Kern High School District.
Meantime, Thompson's Myspace.com website says she graduated from Shafter High in 1998 and has a degree in Business Administration from Cal State Bakersfield.
He just won an Oscar for Capote, but that doesn’t mean that Philip Seymour Hoffman is too big to play small roles.
Look for the star to appear onscreen next in Simply Leon, a film by Tim Farmer, a senior at Fairport (N.Y.) High School.
Last year Hoffman visited Fairport, his alma mater, and Farmer pitched a seven-second role in the short he was making for media class. "He gave me his all," Farmer, 18, tells PEOPLE. "He even said the F-word, which I didn't call for."
The director hopes to debut Leon in L.A. this summer. As for compensation, "I asked him if I had to pay," says Farmer. "He said, 'I don't think you have to pay me for using the F-word.'"
He's brilliant. I'm very happy he's getting the mainstream recogniztion he's always deserved. He will still do indie films as well. You can't get more indie than a high school film.
When did Nikki Hilton become Tara Reid?
"One Tree Hill" star Chad Michael Murray has hooked up with another beauty from the hit TV show - an extra who has just turned 18 years old.
The 24-year-old actor - who split from co-star Sophia Bush last September after just five months of marriage - is reportedly now dating Kenzie Dalton, who plays a cheerleader on the teen drama.
The actress, who is also a model, confirms the relationship saying, "We've been going out since December."
The couple have largely kept their relationship out of the limelight, because they started dated when Dalton was only 17 years old.
Life on the set of the teen drama is understandably tense, with the ex-couple still working together, and Dalton has a frosty relationship with Murray's ex-wife.
She says, 'Sophia and I don't talk, but she is aware of our relationship."
