I hope this kind of thing is allowed!
I was shopping in the Trafford Centre tonight in Manchester, England, and I went to the pet section of Selfridges and someone came and stood right next to me, literally elbow to elbow, and I looked around and it was Rihanna. Surreal as Umbrella had just been playing downstairs :\ There was literally nobody else around, so I should have asked for a picture or something but I was too shy!
She seemed really nice, she was laughing and joking the whole time with some girl. She only had three people with her. She bought a small dog bed, dog lead and collar, and some other dog stuff. She also bought Christmas decorations and I heard her say something about buying a pink Christmas tree. She was wearing blue skinny jeans, black boots, short black jacket and a black beret kind of hat. She looks basically flawless in real life, which was weird as I never thought she looked good on TV. Some guy came out of the back with a drink on a tray for her, and she had a selfridges employee running around after her carrying her purchases. She looked kind of bemused by that. I was also struck by how tall she is!
That's it really!

Hydroderm's lawsuit, filed in Los Angeles Superior Court on Tuesday, claims that a 2005 agreement with ISBE Productions, Hatcher's production company, stipulated the star of ABC's "Desperate Housewives" wouldn't endorse other competing products as part of a $2.4 million endorsement deal.

Long story short: Camel, interested in expanding their ad campaigns to the new hip underaged consumerists you often see outside of 21+ Indie gigs, purchased ad space in Rolling Stone magazine disguising itself as an editorial of sorts. It features the names of a numerous known (TV On The Radio, Ryan Adams, Andrew Bird, Cat Power, Animal Collective) to the not so much (Home Blitz, Tyvek, Lightning Bolt, Pissed Jeans, Fucked Up) musical acts categorized into Sci-Fi themed genres. All WITHOUT being contacted first or granted with permission from the bands themselves, nor their labels (none of them saw any cash from this marketing ploy), now appear to be falsely endorsing the brand. Camel are already being sued by the US States over the cartoons used in the ad, now it is apparent some bands and labels are ready to fight back too.
So if 8 states’ Attorney Generals are suing RJ Reynolds because they think the Rolling Stone ‘Indie Rock Universe’ cartoon is actually a Camel cigarettes advertisement, does that mean all of the bands who’s names/brands were used without permission will sue too? Would make one hell of a class action…
Or, as one Daily Swarm reader posted in the ‘Kill Rock Stars’ comments:
It’s one thing for the Lips and Dino Jr. to knowingly take Camel’s money; it’s another for a band that would never do such a thing to find itself “name-checked” (to use a word in the story) in this advertorial section. Does that imply that the group endorses the product? The argument could be made, if we buy that the section was all one big ad. I’d say that if a band was litigious, it could get some nice coin—and media attention underscoring Camel’s insidiousness—by threatening to sue.UPDATE: From today’s ‘Kill Rock Stars’ comments:
I’m in one of the bands name dropped in this fold out ad. Nobody , at any time contacted my band , label or publicist. We were never asked if we wanted to be mentioned in a cigarette ad or if we minded to have our music on The Farm website. We certainly we\are NOT compensated in anyway.
I personally don’t smoke , nor do any of my bandmates. I already lost a parent to lung cancer and having my band associated in any way with Camel INFURIATES me.
Camel doesn’t care about indie music and neither does Rolling Stone. Both just want youth money and don’t care what ethics they breech to get it.
Here is what the New York Times had to say:
An insert in Rolling Stone magazine sponsored by Camel cigarettes is under fire from antismoking activists because, they say, it blurs the line between advertising and editorial content — and worse yet, features cartoons. The insert was among several in the Nov. 15 issue, celebrating the magazine’s 40th anniversary. All the inserts were what the industry calls butterfly gates — ad pages on the outside, which unfold to reveal pages of articles inside.
In this instance, the Camel ads promoted a campaign and Web site devoted to “free range music” (thefarmrocks.com) (OP- Site has since been shut down), which supports independent record labels. The article inside, “Indie Rock Universe,” presented lists of independent bands and fanciful illustrations of planets, animals and spaceships by Benjamin Marra.
“This is one great big cigarette ad,” said Matthew L. Myers, president of the organization, Campaign for Tobacco-Free Kids, in Washington.

Even if you do smoke, you gotta admit this is an extremely shitty, not to mention illegal thing to do.

A Dublin court dropped public order charges against Irish actor Jonathan Rhys Meyers.
Rhys Meyers, 30, was arrested for drunken, threatening and abusive behaviour at Dublin airport on November 18 and released on bail of 400 euros ($A675).
Rhys Meyers was cautioned by Dublin District Court, with all criminal charges dropped. His lawyer, Michael Staines, told the court the actor would make a voluntary donation to a charity.The actor did not appear in court which was packed with reporters.
Staines told judge Angela Ni Chonduin that Rhys Meyers "accepts his behaviour was unacceptable and out of character" and apologised to airline staff, security and police.
Rhys Meyers won a Golden Globe for his hip-swivelling title role in the 2005 mini-series Elvis and starred opposite Keira Knightley in the film Bend It Like Beckham.

A silly report? Perhaps. But there are those out there who do base their movie-going decisions based on running time. ("Wait, that movie's an hour and forty-five minutes? Screw that!") For theaters owners - the shorter the run time, the more screenings per day.
That said, when it comes to Matt Reeves' "destructo-vérité" Cloverfield, are we going to get an epic-length account of New York City's annihilation? Nada. Sources tell Shock, Reeves and company have cobbled together a lean 'n mean 90-minute tale.
Just enough time to bring the fam to the theater for a winter afternoon matinee and be out in time for an Outback Steakhouse dinner.
In Cloverfield, Michael Stahl-David, Mike Vogel, Odette Yustman, Lizzy Caplan, Jessica Lucas and T.J. Miller star as a pack of friends caught in New York City when it is unexpectedly attacked by a giant monster. J.J. Abrams ("Lost," "Star Trek") is producing.
In other news, a faux commercial for Slusho! (the beverage of choice in Cloverfield) is online. This fictional drink has already permeated TV airwaves by appearing in "Heroes." View the commercial here and watch for the flag-waving chimp at the end. Awesome.

TVGuide.com: The judges never really found a picture of you that they didn't like!
Heather: No, they didn't. Even my worst shoot, they still pretty much liked it. I was quite surprised.

For Hilary Duff, body image issues are so yesterday.
“There definitely was a time, about a year and a half ago, when I was pretty obsessed with my body and my weight,” dishes the 20-year-old mogul in the January issue of Cosmopolitan on newsstands Tuesday. “But I’m better not stressing about my body all the time. It’s not attractive when girls get superskinny. Guys don’t like it. Girls don’t like you as much. You lose some happiness when that’s all you think about.”
She looks like the other Duff in the photo

Jennifer Love Hewitt's now-famous "bikini blog post" and her critical comments about a celebrity culture obsessed with weight continue to reverberate.
PEOPLE magazine's latest cover story, on newsstands Friday, gets the story behind Hewitt's experience, after she was widely ridiculed over photographs taken of her in a bikini from a recent Hawaiian vacation.
And at the Dolce & Gabbana fragrance launch party in New York this week, several female celebrities told PEOPLE they felt solidarity with Hewitt. Here's what they had to say:
• Model Petra Nemcova: "There are different angles that everybody, even if you're in great shape, can look bad in a photograph. And printing these images is definitely influencing people's minds – the stars themselves, but also the people who are reading and looking at the images, the teenagers. It's definitely good that she spoke out."
• Rosario Dawson: "They'll make a whole story about it if someone gains 5 lbs. ... It think there is a huge obsession with size-zero jeans, and it's just really scary. I don't really know where that comes from. We're not really in the Twiggy era anymore. It makes me really nervous, because I don't know how in the world we're supposed to be that thin unless we're totally starving and drugging up."
• Anne Hathaway: "[As an actress], most of the year, your body is your own. But to be ridiculed for it is upsetting. But to also have to defend it or explain it or rejoice in it or put it down, or to be expected to have a public opinion about it ... I don't understand when that happened. I don't think women should only be defined by their bodies and their weight. It's a cycle we've been in for some time, and I don't really like it."
Meanwhile, Hewitt herself shook off the controversy this week – with a trip to Disneyland with fiancé Ross McCall and three of their friends. "She went on a bunch of rides," says a friend of the 28-year-old actress. "She had a great time."
It may be the holiday season, but Jessica Simpson and Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo — her beau since mid-November — seemed more in the mood for Valentine's Day at pal CaCee Cobb's 30th birthday bash at Hollywood hot spot Teddy's on December 1.
"They were all over each other on the couch, making out," a Simpson source tells Us Weekly in its new issue, on newsstands now.
"They were on top of each other! It was a little bit much for a public place," the witness adds. "He was holding her close and she wasn't paying attention to anyone else."
The source adds that Simpson, 27, is "crazy" about her man, also 27, "and gushes about how sweet he is."
Apparently, he's also generous too: Simpson, who split from Nick Lachey two years ago, was overheard that night telling pal Ken Paves that Romo (who recently signed a $67.5 million contract with the Cowboys) picked up the Teddy's check for their entire 12-person party!
Tell Us: Do you think Jessica and Tony will last?
On Wednesday night’s episode of Jimmy Kimmel Live, songstress Mandy Moore kicked it old school and relived her memories of touring with the Backstreet Boys and N’Sync. The “Candy” singer opened for both acts when she was just 15-years-old.
“I had a crush on a different guy every day of the week!” said Moore of her time on the road. But, she admitted, her biggest crush was on Justin Timberlake-–“even back then.”
Did any of them crush the blonde-haired beauty back? “I don’t even think they knew I was there,” she said.
Moore then recalled a time that Timberlake threw a major insult her way. “I think he was trying to be cute. He told me, ‘You have big feet for a girl.’”
Does he know that he wounded you so deeply?” asked Kimmel.
“I don’t think he does,” she joked.
I love this song. Not crazy about the video. Hate the hair.

It's time for Kellie Pickler and Sherri Shepherd to quit playing dumb!
Dec 6, 2007, 08:30 AM | by Christine Fenno
Okay, it’s official: the trend of women on TV being “cheerfully dumb” has got to stop. Sherri “the world is flat” Shepherd (pictured, right), did you actually declare on The View earlier this week that Christianity predated everything--including Greek civilization? Kellie Pickler (pictured, left), did you actually say on Are You Smarter Than a 5th Grader? that you thought Europe was a country and you’d never heard of Hungary? And are you both as pleased with the attention as you seem?
In a world where so many trailblazing, intelligent women—Hillary Clinton, Condoleezza Rice, Katie Couric, take your pick—try to make the world a better place with brainpower, you’ve got to ask yourself: Do Sherri and Kellie have any humiliation threshold? Do they even realize how vacant they sound? While neither may be a natural-born genius, why is anyone who uses her time in the spotlight to be so unrelentingly dim rewarded with more spotlight? Shouldn’t any nitwit who comes off as 100 percent allergic to reading (books, news, maps, anything) be mocked all the way to the unemployment line? Or at least the remedial classroom where she belongs?
For the record, EW readers who point out that only one woman cracked the Top 10 on our own Hollywood’s Smartest People list make a valid observation, if you ask me; the rankings, hotly debated and meticulously researched right here inside EW headquarters, rate “impact” on our culture—and it's worth debating why there aren't more so-called "influential" women to highlight. But don’t kid yourself that Fifth Grader host Jeff Foxworthy’s condescending banter (Jeff: “Kellie, focus.” Kellie: “I’m listening to what you’re saying, but I only hear what I want to.” Jeff: “That’s just called being a woman.”) during the pitiful Pickler performance was merely harmless filler. Misogyny is a bitch, people, and it pops up wherever it’s welcome!
I’d love to hear other reactions to the celebration of the “cheerfully dumb.” Who thinks Sherri Shepherd and Kellie Pickler milk the dimwit persona for the attention? And while we're at it, what can be done to stop them?

Battlestar Galactica executive producer Ronald D. Moore wants fans of the show to support the writers' strike, and he's offering some very enticing incentives for those who do. Over at Pencils2MediaMoguls.com, you can spend one dollar to send a box of pencils to one of the six media moguls who run the corporate conglomerates that the writers are striking against. If you mention that the show you're supporting is Battlestar Galactica, you'll automatically be entered into a raffle where you could win some very interesting prizes.
LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - Striking screenwriters and Hollywood studio executives ended a second straight day of contract talks on Wednesday on the most upbeat note yet during the month-old walkout.
"For the last two days, we have had substantive discussions of the issues important to writers, the first time this has occurred in this negotiation," the Writers Guild of America said in a statement as talks adjourned for the day.
"However, we are still waiting for the (studios) to respond to all of our proposals," the union said, adding that the two sides would return to the bargaining table for a third day in a row on Thursday morning.
The union's conciliatory tone was the strongest sign yet that progress was being made toward reaching a deal to end the strike, which began on November 5 after months of rancor over how much screenwriters should be paid for work shown on the Internet.
It has become the worst labor crisis to hit the U.S. film and TV industry in 20 years, halting production on dozens of TV shows, including most of the major networks' prime-time series, as well as several high-profile movies, including a planned sequel to "The Da Vinci Code."
Thousands of non-writing film and TV workers have been idled, along with the 10,500 WGA members on picket lines.
The writers' Wednesday statement contrasted sharply with the antagonistic stance the union took when an earlier four-day round of talks broke off last week with the WGA dismissing a new set of proposals on from the studios as a "massive rollback."
The parties renewed the talks five days later, on Tuesday, and the WGA presented a counteroffer on payments for Internet streaming of television shows and movies.
The writers' demands have focused on a greater share of revenue for content distributed via the Internet, since it is widely seen as the delivery pipeline of choice for most filmed entertainment in the not too distant future.
The WGA said on Wednesday the two sides also discussed proposals for establishing union jurisdiction over original content created especially for the Internet, as well as reality TV, animation, basic cable and contract enforcement issues.
The studios' bargaining entity, the Alliance of Motion Picture and Television Producers, also struck an upbeat note in its own end-of-the-day statement.
"We believe that there is common ground to be found between the two sides that will put all of us in the entertainment industry in a better position to survive and prosper," it said.
The two sides do not appear that far apart in terms of sheer dollar figures.
The producers' alliance has put the entire value of its compensation package at more than $130 million in new earnings for writers over three years.
The union has challenged that figure as artificially high while pressing a plan of its own that it says would cost film and TV industry $151 million more than it currently pays over three years.

What will Johnny Depp be doing this winter? Preparing to play notorious 1930s gangster John Dillinger in Michael Mann's film PUBLIC ENEMIES, which is scheduled to begin shooting on March 10, 2008 in Chicago. Windy City Deppheads, rejoice!
Yes, it's official; Variety reports that Johnny and Michael Mann met and settled the deal yesterday in Los Angeles. "Meeting hours before the Hollywood premiere of Depp's SWEENEY TODD, the director and actor shook hands on a deal that triggers a March 10 start for PUBLIC ENEMIES in Chicago," says Variety. " [The] drama is set during the great crime wave of 1933-34, when the government's attempts to stop Depression-era criminal legends such as John Dillilnger, Baby Face Nelson and Pretty Boy Floyd transformed J. Edgar Hoover's FBI into the country's first federal police force."
PUBLIC ENEMIES will be made for Universal, Variety reports, with Mann and his Forward Pass producing along with Kevin Misher and his Misher Films. Tribeca's Jane Rosenthal will be executive producer.
The current writers' strike will pose no problem for PUBLIC ENEMIES; director Mann is likely to be satisfied with the script in its current state, as he wrote it himself. The screenplay is based on Bryan Burrough's 2004 book, PUBLIC ENEMIES: AMERICA'S GREATEST CRIME WAVE AND THE BIRTH OF THE FBI, 1933-34.

Johnny Depp will star as notorious 1930s gangster John Dillinger in Universal's Public Enemies. Michael Mann will direct from his own script., based on Bryan Burrough’s 2004 book of the same name. The drama is set in 1933-34, when the government’s attempts to stop Depression-era criminals like John Dillilnger, Baby Face Nelson, and Pretty Boy Floyd transformed J. Edgar Hoover’s FBI into the country’s first federal police force. Shooting is scheduled to start in Chicago on March 10. Mann was considering several projects, including a reunion with Tom Cruise (Collateral) on Edwin A. Salt at Columbia. He ultimately went with Public Enemies when Depp became available after Warner Bros. postponed Shantaram over costs and writers' strike concerns.
Yeah, OK, this is just another shameless opportunity for me to squee that I met him on Monday night. ;) This looks good, but I'm still sad about Shantaram-- the book is terrific & I was looking forward to that. :\

LOS ANGELES (AP) -- A lawyer who claims "High School Musical" lead Vanessa Hudgens owes him $150,000 in legal fees can proceed with his lawsuit against the teen star, a judge ruled Wednesday.
Superior Court Judge Tricia Ann Bigelow said she or a jury should decide whether the actress acted within a reasonable period of time when she waited two years to repudiate a contract she signed when she was 16.
Hudgens' attorney, Evan N. Spiegel, did not immediately return a call to his office seeking comment after the hearing.
Attorney Brian Schall filed a breach-of-contract lawsuit in September that said Hudgens agreed in October 2005 to pay him 5 percent of her earnings in exchange for his legal representation.
Hudgens earned more than $5 million with his help, Schall says in his lawsuit.
Hudgens disavowed the agreement on Oct. 9. She turns 19 later this month.
Her attorney argued that state law provides that a contract with a minor can be voided before the person turns 18 or "within a reasonable time afterward."
Hayes F. Michel, an attorney for Schall, argued in court papers that Hudgens claims "she was too young and innocent to be bound by a legal contract ... and was preyed upon by the very lawyer who helped her make enough money to pay her current lawyers."
The next hearing in the case was scheduled for Jan. 15.
International fashion icon Victoria Beckham, 33, says despite earning millions as a performer, it does not come naturally to her:
"It became very obvious from the start that I was never going to be the best singer or the best dancer or the best actress. I was never a 'natural'. You know, I've never been that good at anything, to be completely honest."
Posh told Elle magazine she was bullied as a child:
“[Children] were literally picking things up out of the puddles and throwing them at me. And I just stood there, on my own. No one was with me. I didn't have any friends. People would push me around, say they were going to beat me up after school, chase me. It was miserable, my whole schooling, miserable. I tried to be friends with people, but I didn't fit in. So I kept myself to myself.
Now everybody wants a piece of her, particularly fashion labels, and she insists she's always working. I work seven days a week. And I so love what I'm doing. I could go shopping all day, which is what a lot of people think that I do. That's their perception, that I'm a miserable bitch and go shopping all day and boss David about."

Donald Trump left a $10,000 tip for a waiter at the Buffalo Club in Santa Monica. According to reader Leslie:
My friend Billy works at the Buffalo Club in Santa Monica. A couple days ago Donald Trump came in and left him a $10,000 tip! Wow! My friends think he's just trying to promote his celebrity Apprentice but whatever. Billy told me Donald hardly even talked to him until the end when he asked, "What's the biggest tip you ever got?" I guess Jerry Bruckheimer (sp?) comes in a lot and once tipped him $500 on a $1000 tab and Bill told him. Trump just wanted to show he's got the biggest dick!
Usually when I want to prove I’ve got the biggest dick I just unleash the beast and pray to God whatever restaurant I’m in has a buffet table big enough for me to display it. But leaving an outlandish 10 grand tip works too, I suppose. If you’re a pussy.

so its POLL TIME!
Are you watching or planning to watch prime time shows in reruns? (i.e. sitcoms and such between 8 and 11 pm)
Are you watching late night shows (i.e. Daily Show, Colbert Report, Conan and other Talk shows) despite the reruns?
Are you sick of the writers strike?
Hmmmm I wonder, how does it feel?

The December issue of HARP magazine features an interview with Antony Hegarty about the forthcoming third Antony and the Johnsons album. According to a post today on Antony's website, the album is called The Crying Light, and it'll come out on Secretly Canadian in the spring. Exciting!

In other Antony news, it turns out he guests on not one but four songs on the forthcoming Hercules and Love Affair album. He also joined Björk in the studio recently to film a music video for their Volta duet "Dull Flame of Desire".And in the December 1 issue of England's The Guardian newspaper, Antony wrote an article appreciating the work of late photographer Peter Hujar, who is the subject of a retrospective currently on view at London's Institute of Contemporary Art. Hujer's photograph "Candy Darling on Her Death Bed" was the image on the cover of I Am a Bird Now.
OMG I'm so excited about Dull Flame being released. imo it's the best song from Volta.

Sneaking into Los Angeles in disguise under the cover of darkness would not exactly be Victoria Beckham's style. She's more the Cleopatra type, arriving on a gilded barge with purple sails, rowed by maids dressed as sea nymphs. Having already been there, done that, she opted for the twenty-first-century equivalent-a reality show, Victoria Beckham: Coming to America. In case you missed it, Victoria Beckham came to America.
View behind-the-scenes video of Victoria Beckham's cover shoot
The Spice Girl known as Posh disembarked picture-perfect from the plane at LAX on July 13, her famously unsmiling self groomed to the nines, nary a blond hair out of place, wearing an Azzedine Alaïa black dress, mile-high heels, and humongous black sunglasses, with an Hermès Birkin bag on one arm and her grinning soccer star husband on the other. What doesn't come naturally to his missus comes naturally to David Beckham, though it could be argued his smile was due to his having signed a $32.5 million, five-year contract with the L.A. Galaxy, a deal that also gives him the chance to earn in excess of $200 million in ticket and jersey sales. Paparazzi royalty, the pair were greeted by more than 100 reporters and photographers, rousing fanfare, camera flashes, and warm, welcoming shouts-out: a V-day parade, or in their case, a dVb-day parade.
Next stop? Beverly Hills.
The Scottish actor - who plays Keira's love interest Robbie in the Oscar-tipped movie - says the highlight of filming the romantic epic was hearing his co-star being instructed in the art of manual stimulation.
James told the New York Daily News newspaper: "Being there while Keira Knightley was being told to w*** me off was a high point."
Director Joe Wright added: "Absolutely no comment. I can't believe he told you that!"
The 22-year-old actress admitted that while she enjoyed shooting the raunchy romp in the library scene, she did need some guidance on what to do.
Keira said: "It was the sex scene, which I have to say I think is a really good sex scene. But it was such a specific thing, and it had to be so erotic, that we did just say to Joe, 'Come on, talk us through it.'"
I always knew she was a prude. ;)

Mom-to-be Nicole Richie has been granted a leave of absence from her court-mandated anti-drinking program, her rep confirms to PEOPLE.
The program suggested the Simple Life star take a leave because they were worried for her safety, according to her rep.
"They offer that option to anyone with a medical condition of any kind," the rep says. "She is not receiving special treatment."
Richie, 26, who is eight months pregnant, must complete the 18-month program as part of her plea deal in her second DUI conviction. She was sentenced in July to four days in jail, fined $2,048, and required to sign up for the program. (In August, Richie served just 82 minutes at the Lynwood Jail, where pal Paris Hilton did her time.)
The alcohol-education course consists of 52 hours of group counseling, bi-weekly face-to-face interviews and 12 hours of alcohol education. Participants are also encouraged to attend 12-step meetings.

In a nutshell, for the tl;dr people: He argues that Imus isn't interesting; he can't believe Victoria Beckham made the list and thinks she's "anorexic", although he "can see" why David Beckham is on the list, as he's an athlete. He doesn't think Justin Timberlake is interesting, and questions whether Barbara listens to his "little music." Perhaps the most laugh-worthy is when Barbara says JT is interesting because he's the only person who's left a boyband to go on to be hugely successful, and Bill says, "What about Ricky? From Menudo?"
Later, they talk about The Veiw and Bill refers to Rosie O'Donnell as "The Wicked Witch of the East." Bill brings up Sherri Shephard and her stupidity regarding the Jesus comment, and when Barbara tries to explain what she meant, Bill says he doesn't care. Shocker.

NEW YORK -- Count Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert among the late-night hosts looking out for their sidelined crews during the writers strike.
The hosts of "The Daily Show" and "The Colbert Report" have quietly worked with Comedy Central to ensure that the network has continued to pay the shows' 200 nonwriting staff members during the work stoppage, according to people familiar with the situation.
Comedy Central "agreed it was the right thing to do," said a source aware of the arrangements. So far, the network has agreed to compensate the employees through this week.

Some people don't watch cable because they're cheap. So the news that the writers strike has made CBS so desperate for content that the network will be airing cleaned up episodes of Showtime's Dexter is surely making a lot of chronic cable downloaders (read: every TV nerd in Canada(lol what?) giddy like a serial killer after a fresh kill. Free of bit torrents, at last!

It seems all good things really must come to an end, even potentially free downloads of albums that change the face of everything everywhere forever and ever, amen. That is, Radiohead will turn the lights out on the pay-what-you-will download option for In Rainbows on December 10, according to a post made on their Dead Air Space blog today. The band has also ended production of In Rainbows discboxes; they will only be available via the band's w.a.s.t.e. online store until the current supply is exhausted.
But don't worry, we can all still get our hands on the physical release of In Rainbows on New Year's Eve (via XL everywhere but the U.S.) or New Year's Day (via TBD/ATO in the U.S.).
And finally (yeah right), according to a report from Radiohead fan site Ateaseweb (and confirmed by the label), it turns out that the Parlophone/EMI-spearheaded box set of the band's first seven records will come with access to a stream of Radiohead's performance at Eurockéennes in Belfort, France from July 4, 2003. Perhaps not coincidentally, the set comes out December 10, the day the downloads die.
are any of you who downloaded the CD gonna buy it as well?

JOURNEY WELCOMES ARNEL PINEDA WITH “OPEN ARMS” TO THEIR FAMILY AS THE BAND’S NEW LEAD SINGER
December 5, 2007 -- After much speculation…the wait is finally over.
JOURNEY--Neal Schon (guitar), Jonathan Cain (keyboards), Ross Valory (bass), Deen Castronovo (drums)--is proud to introduce fans all over the world to their new lead singer, Arnel Pineda (“pin-eh-da”). He replaces Jeff Scott Soto, who parted ways with the band earlier this year after stepping in for Steve Augeri, who had to leave the band in 2006 for medical reasons.
Arnel hails from Quezon City in the Philippines and has been singing Journey songs--in addition to original material--with his band, The Zoo, for the past couple of years in clubs all over his homeland. Joining the legendary band is a dream come true for him.
“It’s so exciting to sing with one of the best bands in the world. It’ll be a lot of hard work on my part and I’m actually looking forward to the scrutiny I’ll get from the hardcore JOURNEY fans. I know they’ll expect me to sound exactly like ‘the voice’ (Steve Perry), but that will never happen. I know there's only one Steve Perry in this world.”
When it was time for JOURNEY to look for a new lead singer, the internet came to their rescue. Guitarist Neal Schon wanted someone new to the music business, so he turned to YouTube. After finding Arnel singing “Faithfully,” he knew he had found the perfect frontman.

Kim Lyons, the trainer who replaced Jillian Michaels on The Biggest Loser during its third season, will not appear on the show’s upcoming fifth season. Jillian Michaels, who returned this season, will return as a trainer alongside Bob Harper for The Biggest Loser 5.
A press release announcing the upcoming fifth season of the show, which will feature couples, says that “[t]he series features trainers Bob Harper and Jillian Michaels.” Kim isn’t mentioned.
An NBC spokesperson confirmed to me exclusively that Kim will not return, as she had other “opportunities,” including the January release of her new book, Kim Lyons’ Your Body, Your Life: The 12-Week Program to Optimum Physical, Mental & Emotional Fitness. The spokesperson said it’s “a possiblity” Kim could return in the future—which, of course, Jillian did this season.
Kim’s publicists said essentially the same thing. “Given the timing of the new season and filming starting so soon after the current season’s closure, Kim had many prior commitments and projects […] that she had to focus on. She is still committed to the Biggest Loser family and remains a valuable part of the show. The door is absolutely open to her returning,” her publicist told me.
On Tuesday’s episode of The Biggest Loser 4, Kim found that her entire team had been eliminated from the competition, the first time that’s happened in the show’s history.
GOOD! I can't stand her, Jillian is way better.

Madonna has christened her final Warner Bros. studio album "Licorice," and will release the set in late April. The news was broken today (Dec. 6) on former Billboard editor Larry Flick's Sirius Satellite Radio show "OutQ."
On the broadcast, Flick also aired two songs from the album, "Candy Shop" and "The Beat Goes On" featuring Pharrell. Both cuts leaked online earlier this year.
Unconfirmed reports say Madonna previewed the album in recent days for Warner Bros. staff members in New York. Kanye West is said to guest on "The Beat Goes On," while an older unreleased tune, "The Devil Wouldn't Recognize You," appears in a new version.
As previously reported, following "Licorice" and a greatest hits collection, Madonna will record for Artist Nation, a new initiative launched by concert promoter Live Nation.

I absolutely adore Nicolas Cage's 23-year-old wife, Alice Kim. I love the fact that they met while she was waiting on him in a sushi restaurant when she was 20. I also love that she got knocked up quickly after they got married. They have such a cute mixed baby too.

Kristin Cavalleri and Nick Zano are over. “They broke up,” a friend of Kristin’s reveals to Life & Style. “She moved out of their house. They’re going in separate directions.”
Kristin, 20, just moved in with Nick, 29, this summer. So what happened? “It wasn’t working out,” explains the friend. “She was bored, and I think she realized she was better off keeping her options open.”
“She used to be the It girl, and now she sees all of these other girls who would normally be in her shadow stealing the spotlight,” says the friend. “I think she wants back in on the scene. So get ready, Hollywood — here comes Kristin Cavallari again!”
“Living together put a real damper on things,” says a friend.

NEW ESTHERO SONGS (SORT OF....)
So, I have to be honest....
lately i've been a lil disillusioned.
i have to be completely honest and say i don't really know what i'm doing or where i'm going next.
i feel as if i'm just waiting for something to happen to me.
I have ideas about where i would like to go....but no solid sense of leadership.
i wonder sometimes if there is room in this business for a manic artist such as myself - manic musically, not emotionally - just to clarify.
anyhoo.....that being said....i wanted to post some new songs.
none of these songs are indicative of a definite direction, but rather just me exercising my muscles so to speak.
i'd like to know what you think. keep in mind these are all just demos
'The many times' - sung by myself and Miguel pimental......he's a wonderful writer and singer...soon to be on you radar. sorta sounds like classic esthero to me. produced by State of Emergency
'believer' written by my bg singer Toya alexis.......extra vocals by my hero Brandy - yes THAT brandy. Produced by State of Emergency
'Love for just one night' - i wrote this in 20 mins. i was pretending to be Madonna back in the day....think papa don't preach meets 'sweet dreams' by the eurythmics. Possibly the pop-iest thing i've ever written.......this one is for my gays! produced by State of Emergency
'if i didn't have faith' - all i can say is that i am more proud of this than anything i have ever written.

Whatever happens, one thing is certain, The Hills will be alive with the sound of drama once again!

"He was passionate. He wanted to be as honest with people as he could — almost to a fault, you know? And it's just ... it's kind of hard to really put a lot of that into words, the kind of man he was. But everything he loved — everyone he loved — he loved hard and embraced it fully. He was very passionate if he felt a certain way about things; he couldn't hold it in, he couldn't filter himself, he couldn't be politically correct. It just wasn't in him to not say what he felt. Whether he felt he was right or wrong at the time, he spoke from his heart."

The Mondrian Hotel released the following statement to the Los Angeles Times: "Mondrian received calls this morning from the family of Chad Butler inquiring about his whereabouts. Mr. Butler had checked into the hotel on 28 November and, according to the callers, was to have checked out yesterday. Security personnel went to Mr. Butler's room and found him in bed, apparently expired. A 911 call was placed at about 9:20 a.m. and paramedics from the Los Angeles Fire Department responded and pronounced Mr. Butler dead."
So he was just in there dead for a day or two?

10. “Close My Eyes Forever,” Lita Ford and Ozzy Osbourne (1988)

They will then turn their attention to the anthropological impact of Lita Ford’s meticulously shredded jeans and Ozzy’s finely tousled hair, and thank whatever god or appliance they worship that they weren’t alive in 1988.

Variety - Helmed by Jaume Balaguero (“Darkness”) and Paco Plaza (“Romasanta”), “REC” grossed $2.2 million off 263 copies, the second best bow for any Spanish film this year, just bettered by “The Orphanage.”
An urban zombie pic, and satire of TV scoop reportage whatever the cost, “REC” played off spectators interest in Spanish horror movies, demonstrated by “The Orphanage,” as well as an excellent reception at the Sitges fest and a good campaign by producer-distributor Filmax. (Screen Gems is producing an English-language remake of “REC” in the U.S.)

Amid a welter of publicity for its supposedly anti-Christian message, The Golden Compass finally arrives in theaters today.

Remy Ma recently got at Lil Kim on some radio station interviews in response to a Kim diss track:
“That little boy better live me alone,” Remy said referring to Lil Kim. “ She was saying ‘I’m going at [Remy] hard, she go hard to me so I go hard back’. I feel like if that’s going at me hard, like seriously, I’m just gonna chill out. That’s crazy to me.”
“What did she say? ‘Put it on my lipstick, I was to be busy being conceited’. Like, how could you be conceited, you don’t even like your own face,” Remy continued. “ What are you talking about? Are you serious? How was I supposed to take that offensive.” “I don’t believe you,” stressed Remy. “ You don’t like your nose, you don’t like your cheek , you don’t like your chin, you don’t like your skin color, you don’t like your tits , you don’t like your stomach, you don’t like your teeth. What are you talking about?”
“At the end of the day it’s funny to me. When I really feel like it’s amusing, when I feel like someone’s getting at me, then I’ll drag them all over the first spot that I see them of course,” Remy continu ed. “ But in the meantime, in between time…like this chic has more ghostwriters than Foxy [Brown]. I just feel like right now she’s reaching,”
People really don’t speak about it but Hollyweird turned out Kim with that knifed-up sh*t and it’s sad. She is not in the position to be going at anyone on records. Poor thang.
We also don’t think Kim really wants it with Remy, either real beef or on the mic.

Degrassi: The Next Generation is known for it accurate, yet sometimes vanilla portrayal of North American teenage life. Topics such as date rape, teen pregnancy, school violence, and inevitable cocaine abuse by wayward rockers are all fair game on this Canadian after-school-special-like teenage sitcom.
Characters such as Manny, the school slut, Paige, the pig-faced "mean girl," and Marco, the Latino gay resonate with tweens and adults alike. One of the most unforgettable Degrassi characters is Rick, who is Season 3 beats his chubby, plus-size-model (she has a very cute face) girlfriend Terri, putting her in a coma, and subsequently in Season 4 brings a gun to school, shoots and paralyzes the star basketball player (who is black), and in the end is killed by his own gun.
Does anyone else find it at all creepy that the Rick (picture 1) looks an awful lot like the kid who yesterday went on a shooting spree in an Omaha mall (picture 2)?
It sure give us the heeby jeebies.
source and story of the shooting for those who arent in the know, and would like to get depressed and even more afraid of malls this holiday season.
I dedicate this post to ecctv, who I'm sure is overjoyed that Rick is in an OP, whatever the topic.

bbs, I do not mean to offend ANYONE with this post. It popped into my inbox and I thought the observation was note-worthy, and the Degrassi descriptions funny. I'm very interested in life vs. art.
I handle everything with humor, avoidance and escapism. ONTD is not meant to be 100% serious, so I'm truly sorry if it offended anyone. However, I'm not going to delete it, because it did make some people laugh, and others talk a little about the event and offer support.
So please continue to do so. <3

Joining the ranks of many popular and good looking actors from past and present, Harry Potter actors Alan Rickman (Professor Snape), Gary Oldman (Sirius Black), Emma Watson (Hermione Granger), and Dan Radcliffe (Harry Potter) were chosen by voters to be included on the list. Empire describes a certain defining moment for Alan Rickman, who came in at 83 on the list, as his role in the “Die Hard” film saying “Ambitious, well dressed, classically educated – if he weren’t pure evil, Die Hard’s Hans Gruber would be great boyfriend material,” and goes on to say:
All the girls love a bad boy and no one does bad better than Alan Rickman. It’s the voice that does it, that and a commanding screen presence. Such is his ability to give good evil that he even makes the oily Professor Severus Snape somehow attractive."
