NIN -- "Flirting With Dystopia, Experimenting With Noise"

NY Times Music Review | Nine Inch Nails
Flirting With Dystopia, Experimenting With Noise
By KELEFA SANNEH
Published: April 17, 2007

Miniature hard drives stashed in bathrooms. Unlisted phone numbers that lead to ominous messages. A small constellation of mysterious Web sites chronicling a grim future 15 years away. This is how Trent Reznor is letting the world — or some fanatical portion thereof — know about “Year Zero” (Nothing Records/Interscope), the new Nine Inch Nails album, which arrives in shops today. Open the packaging and you’ll find another secret message: the disc itself changes color with heat, turning white to display the copyright information and a long string of ones and zeroes. In this paranoid world, everything worth knowing is a secret.

puppy secrets

lighthearted, relatively mindless dog stuff..relatively



Jessica Alba took a break from shooting a commercial in West Hollywood yesterday to share a little puppy love with her pit bull, Bowie.

this may seem kind of random and silly, which it is. BUT, i am a total dogfag (trainer and owner that's way too involved maybe?) who works with shelter and rescue dogs on death row that have been labeled "unadoptable". i rehabilitate/train/work with them to get them adopted out so they don't have to be put down. the majority of these dogs are "pit bull-types" or some variation of pit-mixes, and i am very much an advocate against BSL and an advocate FOR the demonized american pit bull terrier. seeing this picture on tmz in no negative light made me really happy, and it was sweet to see jessica alba unintentionally promoting pit-love. no stigma or ranting about BSL or dog attacks...just a girl kissing her dog. :)

Britney Fires Larry Rudolph, Rehires Leslie Sloane Zelnik


BRITNEY Spears
is trying to take back her career. Not only has the pop tart been back in the music studio and taking regular dance classes, an insider claims she fired her manager of several months, Larry Rudolph, on Friday. Spears, who's been suffering from severe postpartum depression, blames Rudolph for recent missteps, including introducing her to her nemesis, Paris Hilton. There may be legal ramifications as she signed a multi-year deal with Rudolph. But, since she just rehired her one-time p.r. woman, Leslie Sloane Zelnik, we're sure it will all be spun nicely in the press. Sloane didn't know about Rudolph's status when contacted.

I don't know it sounds like this whole article is out of Leslie's mouth... when I think of people suffering from postpartum depression, I don't think about people dancing with strippers, passing out in clubs, and attacking cars with umbrellas. You know what they say, the first step to recovery is blaming everyone else but yourself.

Rachel and Ryan: It's a break; not a break-up.



Rachel McAdams, 30, and Ryan Gosling, 26, are spending some time apart.

“It’s a break, not a breakup,” says one source, who adds that while McAdams is very dependent on Gosling, the recent Oscar nominee wants some distance so he can focus on his sizzling career. (A source had told Us last week that the couple would soon get hitched.)

“It’s a pivotal moment for him,” says the insider.

Still, McAdams “is taking it really hard because Ryan is everything to her,” says a source.

A third insider, who says the pair split several weeks ago, adds, “Ryan was in love with her, but it didn’t work out because of their conflicting work schedules.”

Says the pal, “They’re both miserable. Hopefully they’ll get back together soon.”

McAdams' rep call the story is “completely false.”

Some Spiderman news:

Spidey Song and Dance

A musical adaptation of Spider-Man coming to Broadway in July, with U2's Bono and The Edge supervising the songbook, according to Playbill. The stage mag reporting that a "rehearsed reading" of the musical will take place on July 12 and 13.

Tangled Web

Entertainment Weekly's Website reporting that director Sam Raimi may opt to helm The Hobbit rather than stick with the Spider-Man franchise for a fourth go-round, a move that might also leave the superhero series without a heroine. "I think it's disrespectful to the whole team, I think, to do that," Kirsten Dunst told EW.com. "And audiences aren't stupid. It'd be a big flop without me, Tobey, or Sam. That would really not be the smartest move."

Robin Thicke on Race, Racism & "Blue-Eyed Soul"



BLUE-EYED SOUL

Despite having Usher, Mary J. Blige, Michael Jackson and Christina Aguilera on his C.V. it still took a while for Robin Thicke to gain acceptance as an R’n’B artiste. By Davina Morris
Dubbed by Pharrell Williams as the man who is “going to change music”, US artist Robin Thicke is, without a doubt, one to watch.
His impressive new album, The Evolution of Robin Thicke has already got music critics and R’n’B fans in a frenzy– possibly because the Neptunes-produced track Wanna Love You Girl, was circulating among R’n’B aficionados ages ago. (Record labels take far too long to jump on board with hot music.)
Still, the album is soon to be released, and with Thicke performing at London’s Jazz Café this week, audiences will have the chance to hear his blend of soulful R’n’B grooves for themselves.
Success is sure to beckon for 30-year-old Thicke, who is signed to Pharrell’s label, Star Trak Records. He sings, he writes, he produces and – oh yeah – he’s white.

Washington tapped for priest



Washington tapped for indie drama

Isaiah Washington will star in the indie drama The Least of These as a priest who returns to the Catholic high school where he was abused as a child. It is his first new role since he used a homosexual slur on camera backstage at the Golden Globes this year and then headed to psychological counseling. Writer-director Nathan Scoggins, a former Christian singer-songwriter and nondenominational Christian worship leader, will make his feature debut on the movie. Scoggins said that his wife suggested Washington for the role and that the subject matter was one of the things that attracted the actor to the project. The movie's month-long shoot is scheduled to start in June.

John Travolta and Marilyn Monroe?

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

John Travolta is getting senile in his old age and says he's as big a star as Elvis Presley and Marilyn Monroe, but didn't die like them because of his values and religion. He says:

"I have fame on the level of a Marilyn Monroe or an Elvis, but part of the reason I didn't go the way they did was because of my beliefs. People make judgments about it [Scientology], but often they don't know what they're talking about. I would advise anyone who wants to know about it to read up on it. We [the Church of Scientology] are only getting bigger and we help people all over the world, from disaster zones to drug rehabilitation. We were having a problem in Germany [where some critics called Scientology a money-making entity rather than a religion]. I talked to [former president Bill] Clinton who talked to Chancellor Kohl and things have improved since then."
John Travolta believing in anything is the exact reason why I don't. On my list of most horrifying things, becoming John Travolta is number one. I wear a bracelet that says WWJTD, and whenever I'm about to do something I think, "Would John Travolta do this?" And if he would, I do the exact opposite. Which works well for things like believing in Scientology, but I haven't had a cup of water in over eight years.

Sigh. I thought I'd post a picture of a John Travolta who back in the day was much better looking, a decent actor, and not even a millionth as weird as he is now. Eech, what went wrong?

More on Kiki Dunst commenting about Spiderman 4 being a flop




It was mentioned a bit here but this is a whole article on it.


BEIJING, April 17 (Xinhuanet) -- Whether there will be a "Spider-Man 4" movie remains a mystery with the cast giving no clear clues Tuesday, but Kirsten Dunst said earlier that one thing is for sure: a sequel without her, co-star Tobey Maguire and director Sam Raimi would be a box office flop.

At a press conference Tuesday, Dunst gave glimmer of hope when asked about how her character -- Mary Jane Watson -- had developed in the latest film.

"I think this last film -- not the last film, but the third film -- has really been a culmination of that growth of family," she said, referring to the cast.

Sam Raimi were also at the packed news conference, but no reporters got a chance to ask the question whether the superhero would return to the screen in a fourth adventure.

Entertainment Weekly magazine on Monday cited Raimi as confirming a long-held Hollywood rumors that he might take the directing reins on a movie version of J.R.R. Tolkien's "The Hobbit" if Peter Jackson is not eventually hired.

Separately Dunst told Entertainment Weekly that if that happens, a "Spider-Man 4" without Raimi, her and Maguire would be "disrespectful to the whole team."

"Audiences aren't stupid. It'd be a big flop without me, Tobey or Sam," Dunst said in a story posted on the celebrity magazine's Web site, ew.com.

"Spider-Man 3" made its world debut in Tokyo Monday. Maguire, Dunst and other stars of the movie attended the gala red-carpet premiere.

The previous two "Spider-Man" films have raked in more than 1.6 billion U.S. dollars worldwide since the first was released in 2002, making it one of the most successful franchises of all time.

PARIS TO APPEAR IN COURT.



Paris Hilton will face a judge on May 4, when prosecutors are hoping to have her probation revoked -- which could result in a 90-day jail sentence! Paris making license plates?

In January, Hilton pleaded no contest to alcohol-related reckless driving -- stemming from a September arrest -- and was sentenced to 36 months probation, alcohol education and $1,500 in fines. Prosecutors argue that her February arrest for misdemeanor driving with a suspended license violates that probation.

While not present in court today, Hilton will have to appear in person next month.

Don't FUCK with Joe Pesci

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Singer Robbie Williams was left stunned after a furious four-letter tirade with his neighbor, Hollywood legend Joe Pesci. The 64-year-old actor - who played psychotic Tommy DeVito in the 1990 gangster classic Goodfellas - flew into a rage when Robbie’s friends blocked his LA driveway with their cars. Waving a golf club and spouting lines that echoed his famous mobster character, he stormed over to the singer and his pals and yelled: “Which one of you motherfuckers blocked my driveway? If you don’t move in 30 seconds, I’m gonna smash your windshield!” At first, Robbie and his pals thought Pesci, who also starred in Raging Bull, was joking, but Robbie soon ordered his friends to move their cars when he realized Pesci was geniunely pissed off. Robbie's reps even confirmed the incident publicly.

In January of 2006, Joe Pesci punched out a 24 year-old guy who hounded him for a picture in a shopping center parking lot in Boca Raton, FL. Pesci initially shook his hand, the guy went away to buy a camera, and came back and asked for a picture. Pesci refused to let him take one, and when the guy snapped his picture anyway he socked him in the face. Source

Hulk and Linda on the rocks?

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

HAS the longest, strongest marriage in professional wrestling history suffered a fatal, bone-crunching blow?

Sources close to Hulk and Linda Hogan, who've been wedded for more than 20 years, say they're "going through a very hard time and their marriage is under a lot of strain."

The problems started several years ago when the Hogan family - including the couple's kids, aspiring pop singer Brooke and amateur race-car driver Nick - started filming the VH1 show "Hogan Knows Best." One friend said, "They have different beliefs on how to raise kids. Brooke started her music career, and they started getting into fights."

Some of the well-documented battles on the show have been over how scantily clad Brooke - just 18 when she did her first major magazine - should be, or how late she could stay out with boyfriends.

During the show, the Hogans moved from their longtime residence in Tampa to a Miami mansion, and also bought houses in Los Angeles and Las Vegas. While either Linda or Hulk traveled with Brooke or Nick to their various events, they rarely traveled together. Another source of tension was Hulk, 53, desperately wanting to get back into wrestling, while Linda wanted to body-block the idea, fearing he could get hurt.

At one point, the friend said, "Linda got so fed up she quit the VH1 show. She just walked off. No one knows what started that fight but it was serious." Linda is now back on set to film the fourth season.

Another insider said, "At one point they were talking divorce. It's still precarious."

A rep for the Hogans declined comment. But Hulk's wrestling manager, Jimmy Hart, told us, "There's ups and downs in every marriage. I was with them last weekend in Miami shooting the show and everything seemed fine.

"Dionne Warwick was there to do a song with Brooke, and Linda seemed fine. Ever since they went to marriage counseling on that VH1 show, people have said there were problems, but it's fine."

McAdams and Bana in The Time Traveler's Wife

  

Eric Bana and Rachel McAdams will star in "The Time Traveler's Wife," the Robert Schwentke-directed adaptation of the bestselling Audrey Niffenegger novel.

Shooting's set to start in August.

Bana will play a Chicago librarian with a genetic disorder that causes him to time-travel when he is under duress. Though his disorder causes him to vanish for long periods, he tries to build a life with the woman he loves. She's a young heiress struggling with the arrangement.

Pic is produced by Plan B's Brad Pitt and Nick Wechsler. Jeremy Leven originally adapted it with Bruce Joel Rubin rewriting.

Because the book was a bestseller, the film has been a constant source of speculation since New Line acquired it in 2003. McAdams, who last starred for New Line in "Wedding Crashers" and also starred in New Line’s “The Notebook,” is negotiating after a long flirtation with the project.

Bana, who'll next be seen onscreen opposite Drew Barrymore in the Curtis Hanson-directed "Lucky You," recently wrapped "The Other Boleyn Girl," the Columbia Pictures drama that co-stars Natalie Portman and Scarlett Johansson. It will be released Dec. 21.

He's repped by WMA and McAdams by UTA and Magnolia Ent.

Virginia Tech Tragedy Prompts Fox to Nix Bones Eppy

Free Image Hosting at www.ImageShack.us

As happens with most every national tragedy, as the networks' news divisions scramble to cover an event like Monday morning's mass shooting at Virginia Tech, the entertainment divisions keep a sympathetic eye out for any imminent programming that might hit too close to home. Case in point: Fox acted quickly to pull an original episode of Bones that was to air Wednesday, which dealt with human remains being uncovered on a college campus. Instead, Variety reports, the episode will be replaced with a repeat.




I don't know what to say. Part of me is happy they pulled it and part of me wishes they had just kept it so life would continue as it should. I've been in tears the past 36 hours and I want nothing more than to just be able to get back a somewhat normal routine. Yes this may be close to what happened, but it's like 9-11 all over again. Pulling things that are close to what happened will not take away what happened.

No ANS for Rosie

Image and video hosting by TinyPicA summer cruise for gay and lesbian families organized by Rosie O'Donnell has cut Bermuda from its planned itinerary because of possible protests by church groups in the British island territory.

O'Donnell's charter company said it would replace the Bermuda stop with two other ports of call in Florida. It will also stop at a private island in the Bahamas. The tour is scheduled to leave New York in July on a ship owned by Miami-based Norwegian Cruise Line.

The charter company, R Family Vacations, said on its Web site that it wanted to avoid the type of protests that greeted passengers when one of its cruises stopped in Nassau, Bahamas, in 2004.

In the statement, the company said Bermuda's prime minister had assured them they would be welcome as tourists and they had also received hundreds of supportive e-mails from people who live in the wealthy British enclave.

Still, organizers felt they could not be certain there would be no protesters greeting them upon arrival. "We feel that our cruise would be more enjoyable with an alternate itinerary to ports where we know we are welcome by everyone."

In 2004, about 100 protesters chanting anti-gay slogans met one of the company's cruises when it arrived in Nassau with about 1,150 passengers.

CSI: Hollywood


Federal prosecutors have alleged that a low-level career bandit may hold the key to one of the more high-profile mysteries of the hip-hop world: Who killed rap pioneer Jam Master Jay?

In court papers, the prosecutors identify Ronald "Tenad" Washington as the armed accomplice of a second unidentified gunman who shot Jay, whose real name was Jason Mizell, inside his New York recording studio in 2002. They say Washington also is a suspect in the 1995 fatal shooting of Randy Walker, a close associate of the late rapper Tupac Shakur.

The papers were filed earlier this month in the federal trial of Washington, who was convicted in a string of armed robberies that occurred just after Jay was killed. Prosecutors declined on Tuesday to discuss the unsolved slayings.

A Mizell family spokeswoman welcomed news that authorities had for the first time publicly identified a suspect.

"We're relieved there's some information coming out, although we understand that it's not the full story," said the spokeswoman, Fern Yates.

Washington, 45, has denied any connection to either the Mizell or Walker cases. In a sworn statement, he claimed hostile detectives had hounded him about the slaying of his "childhood friend" Mizell and other crimes.

Washington's criminal record dates to 1982, and includes convictions for assault, drugs and grand larceny, authorities said.

During the 1980s, Mizell made rap music history working the turntables as Joe "Run" Simmons and Darryl "DMC" McDaniels rapped on hits like "King of Rock," "It's Tricky" and a top-40 remake of Aerosmith's "Walk This Way."

Mizell was gunned down Oct. 30, 2002, at his 24/7 recording studio. According to a performer there, a man wearing a black sweat suit appeared, embraced Mizell, pulled out a .40-caliber pistol and opened fire.

A first round missed Mizell and injured another person. A second bullet, this one fired from point-blank range, entered the left side of Mizell's head. The shooter vanished.

For his part, Washington "pointed his gun at those present in the studio, ordered them to get on the ground and provided cover for his associate to shoot and kill Jason Mizell," prosecutors said in court papers.

While being sought for questioning in the Mizell case, Washington fled and lived in various motels, authorities said. He held up several fast-food restaurants and other businesses with a pellet gun before his arrest in December 2002.

Prosecutors claim Washington was among three men involved in a fatal car chase with another hip-hop figure — Walker — on Nov. 30, 1995. The suspect allegedly fired a gun out a car window, killing Walker and causing his minivan to crash.

Walker had performed with the group Live Squad under the name Stretch. He also was known for producing several songs for Shakur, victim of an unsolved murder in 1996 in Las Vegas.
