Me: Clown

(no subject)

Who did I met Monday?

Why it was NEIL GAIMAN (and that's obv. me with a rather dumb face as is typical in any picture someone takes of me, but who cares because Neil is NEXTTOME)

I got invited by a friend to the book launch party for his new novel The Graveyard Book - another foray into children's literature - on Monday in London, England. Held at the Crypt Cafe, rather fittingly.

Having managed to get a copy (wohoo free book. Signed too with my name in a little tombstone as was NG's style that evening) it's really good, or what I've read so far is.

As per mod request - Wiki link:

Mini Edit - It wasn't a reading, I missed that. It was last Friday and the friend didn't realise I was a fan back then. It was party so drinking, standing, mingling.

So it's really good. Or? Is it really bad?

Chloe Lattanzi's weird boobs

Oh dear. Reality TV star, Olivia Newton-John daughter and recovered anorexic Chloe Lattanzi rocked up to a charity event in the States recently, flaunting cleavage that looked like widely-spaced coconut shells.

The wide-eyed 22-year-old, last on our radar as an aspiring singer on Idol-esque reality show Rock The Cradle, is often in the spotlight due to her unconventional looks, and she certainly warrants a second look with those chichis.

But he reveals Yorke will be the first person he calls when he's ready to perform again - and he's already got a few songs ready.

He says, "We've known each other for a while now. But the doctors said I couldn't perform for two months. I've been writing a lot instead."

Traci Lords: Don't Call Me a Porn Star!

traci lords Pictures, Images and Photos

Former adult star Traci Lords may be one of the stars of the upcoming film Zack & Miri Make a Porno, but she still has an issue with the state of the industry today.

Traci says she can't stand all the internet porn spam! "[Porn] is not something that I'm sitting and watching these days but from all the spam, I hate when that comes across my computer!" she says. Excited about her role as a porn star in the new Kevin Smith film Zack & Miri Make a Porno, she admits there was some initial hesitation.

"I'm a huge fan of Kevin Smith, so I said,'Yay!' but when my manager told me the title I went, 'What?' Does he know I'm a mom now?"

Traci ultimately decided to take the role but says her infamous life as a teen porn star is no longer a part of who she is.

"I have a different life now, a great husband and a great baby. My old life no longer defines me."

HSM3 Press Conference In Mexico City

On-and-off-screen couple Zac Efron and Vanessa Hudgens gets fans in a tizzy at a press conference in Mexico City on Thursday for their latest movie-musical High School Musical 3: Senior Year.

Vanessa, 19, wore a purplelicious waisted slip dress from Twelfth Street by Cynthia Vincent. It hits stores next month!

When asked what the most standout moment from the entire HSM experience was, Zac told CosmoGirl, “I think that one of the moments that we all look back on as pretty amazing was in the first movie, when we filmed “We’re All in This Together.” We were all in our elements in that moment. It was the time of our lives and that was the beginning of it all. Another standout moment for the whole cast — I know it was for me — was the finale of the third movie, the very last thing we shot. It was very surreal to look at how far we had come.”

Idol Reject lesson #1: don't get sued

Josiah Leming, the teary homeless singer who was the last to be axed before the top 24 round on American Idol Season 7, is facing an Idol threat in regards to his upcoming album.

According to The New York Post, Simon Fuller's 19 Entertainment, the force behind Idol, is threatening to block the release of Leming's debut disc, due in January, citing violation of terms of agreement. Leming, like all contestants, signed a strict contract with 19E that stipulates he must record with the Idol-handpicked label, Sony/BMG, and gives the company exclusive right of refusal for management and merchandising.

Leming, 19, signed with Warner Bros. earlier this year.

"Josiah was the only Idol contestant ever to get a record deal who didn't make the top 24, and one of only four contestants to get a deal this year," a rep for the 19-year-old said. "He has personal reasons for getting his music out, threat or not."

His tug-at-your-heartstrings backstory was well-chronicled on Idol - he lived in his car and his mom has terminal cancer - Leming is determined to get his album on shelves "while [his mother] is alive to share it."

Idol producers have yet to respond to Leming's lawyers, his rep said.

Should Leming be allowed to release his album? Is Idol's contract completely out of hand?


Ze Greatest Singer in ze world wants another babeh.

The clock may be ticking, but Céline Dion still hopes to have a second child after her world tour ends in February 2009.

There is a "small window of hope," she told Oprah Winfrey this week. "We'll give it a try after my tour ... Hopefully, we [will be] parents again. If not, that's fine. We have our miracle baby."

Dion and her husband, manager René Angélil, have a 7-year-old son, René-Charles, conceived by in vitro fertilization after six years of trying.

In the meantime, Dion has more pressing concerns, like battling the respiratory ailment which forced her to cancel a recent show in Minneapolis. (The concert has been rescheduled for Feb. 5.)


Jen is mad at Pink!

The former Friends actress believes the Trouble hitmaker called her "stupid" during a conversation with Aniston's boyfriend John Mayer.

Pink said, "I got into an argument with him. He said something along the lines of, 'I only s**g really stupid women', and I said, 'I guess they would have to be.'

"I don't get him and Jennifer at all."

Jennifer has now reportedly ordered her friends not to speak to the singer.

A source said, "She’s livid that Pink would suggest she's stupid like that in public. Jen's a clever girl and she can't believe her intelligence is being called into question.

"But Pink was actually defending Jennifer – John infuriated her by talking about women like that. Jennifer has already made it quite clear that Pink is to be blacklisted among her circle.

"This is Jen, she never voices her feelings to people's faces. Pink, however, is a different story."

Jennifer, 39, and John, 31, reconciled earlier this month after splitting in August.


Jennifer Lopez teams up with NBC

Jennifer Lopez, whose production company recently sold a pilot to ABC, is now getting into business with NBC Universal.

Lopez's Nuyorican Productions has signed a two-year, first-look TV development deal with Universal Media Studios, NBC's sister studio and the network's primary supplier of scripted shows. The deal has NBC and UMS co-chairman Ben Silverman excited.

"Jennifer Lopez is a multifaceted superstar and we are thrilled to be in business with her," Silverman says. "NBC has been fortunate to have worked with her previously with her music specials, and now this first-look deal gives us an opportunity to explore a variety of projects which will result in some outstanding television."

For her part, Lopez calls Universal "the perfect home for Nuyorican" and says she's looking forward to having success there.

Lopez and partner Simon Fields have produced a handful of shows under the Nuyorican banner, including the short-lived UPN drama South Beach, the MTV series Dancelife and Univision's miniseries Como Ana Una Mujer. The two are also executive producing the ABC pilot Maid in Manhattan, based on the 2002 Lopez movie about a single mom who works as a maid in a posh Manhattan hotel.

Hugh Hefner's exes Holly Madison and Kendra Wilkinson are definitely leaving the Playboy Mansion.

"Holly and Kendra are moving out right now," Bridget Marquardt told Usmagazine.com Thursday at the Playboy fragrance launch in NYC. "I don't know how much longer I'll be there.

"I've been doing a travel channel show," she says, "so to be honest, I'm not even there that much at the moment anyway."

(Of Hef, she said, "We are talking about doing season six [of Girls Next Door]. We have a lot of fun ideas so keep watching!")

Madison - who got cozy with Criss Angel Oct. 21 at CatHouse in Las Vegas, as Us Weekly reports in its latest issue - recently told Us she is setting up her new bachelorette pad.

"It's a loft.It's going to be super fun and the best bachelorette pad ever!" she said. "I'm really excited because I get a fireman pole. Hef never put one in the mansion.

"Nothing is done to it yet. It's actually not habitual now," she told Us of her new digs. "It's still in the cardboard box phase, but we're working on it and will hopefully be done with it by the end of the month."

"But at the end of the day she's a cool girl and so I'm happy with whatever she does."

Lohan is now in a relationship with DJ Samantha Ronson, sister of producer Mark Ronson, and Best said: "Yeah I turned her."

Asked on Celebrity Juice if he was publicly denying he had slept with Jodie Marsh, he said: "I will and I have, so good on her."

Supermodel Niki Taylor Is Pregnant!

Springtime will bring a whole new blossom into the home of supermodel Niki Taylor and her NASCAR husband Burney Lamar: They're expecting their first child together, Taylor's rep announced to PEOPLE Thursday.

"Burney and I are very excited with this stage of our lives," says Taylor, who is due in March. "We're thrilled."

Taylor, 33, met her husband while the duo was paired together to sign autographs at a charity event, and were married in December 2006. In lieu of wedding gifts, the couple asked that donations be sent to Victory Junction Gang Camp, a camp for chronically ill children where they continue to work raising money and awareness.

Taylor, who most recently hosted the Bravo series Make Me a Supermodel, is already mom to 13-year-old twin boys Jake and Hunter.

Duffy Hair on Fire at Coldplay Gig

'Is someone cooking chicken?'

Image and video hosting by TinyPicImage and video hosting by TinyPic

Welsh soul star Duffy almost went up in flames last week when she accidentally set her hair alight backstage at a Coldplay concert.

The Mercy singer recently supported the British rockers at a gig in Cleveland, Ohio - but found herself in a potentially life-threatening situation when her blonde locks caught fire from a candle in her dressing room.

She says, "I was in the dressing room and I had music on and candles alight.
"The venue was a huge stadium, like a big sports centre. The dressing rooms had big white lights, no mirrors and lockers all along. They were super cool but you wouldn't want to spend three hours in there. So I was giving it a little bit of razzle dazzle. I had dimmed the lights then I lit this candle and it started melting a bit.
"I thought, 'S**t!' and started blowing it out. I got a cloth to wipe it up and bent down, not realising it was still lit. Then the entire left side of my hair went up in flames."

But her cringe-worthy situation soon got worse when she realised Coldplay frontman Chris Martin was on his way to visit her.
She recalls, "At that moment, Chris was walking down the corridor to say, 'Hi'. I hadn't met him before and the place stank of burning hair.

"Somebody came in and said, 'Is someone cooking chicken?' I had black crumbs of hair all down me so I had to give it a chop and pin it back. It was really bad and properly embarrassing. Chris could smell it, you couldn't avoid smelling it.

"Can you imagine if I had gone up in flames? Nightmare. I honestly saw my life flash before my eyes."

Winehouse drug couple face jail

A couple who supplied drugs to a "hit list" of celebrities including Amy Winehouse are facing jail.

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Johnny Blagrove, 34, and his girlfriend Cara Burton, 22, were arrested and charged after a video they secretly shot of the singer apparently smoking crack at her flat was handed to the authorities.

The couple filmed the Rehab singer, who can also be heard talking about taking Valium, and then sold the tape to The Sun newspaper earlier this year, Snaresbrook Crown Court was told.

Sean Larkin, prosecuting, said the video was passed to the Crown Prosecution Service and officers raided the east London home of the couple, finding a "hit list" detailing the type and amounts of drugs to be supplied to various celebrities.

No charges were brought against Winehouse in relation to the video due to lack of evidence.

Blagrove pleaded guilty to two counts of offering to supply Class A drugs - cocaine and MDMA - and one count of offering to supply Class B, while Burton pleaded guilty to two counts of offering to supply Class B.

However the couple denied one charge each of conspiracy to supply Class A drugs which was dropped after it was accepted by the prosecution.

Adjourning the case until November 28 for pre-sentence reports Judge Tudor Owen said the couple were "at risk of a custodial sentence".

Sugababes - 'We don't use looks to sell CDs'

THEY may be smokin' hot, but the SUGABABES reckon their looks have nothing to do with the amount of records they sell.

The girls are so confident of their tantalising talents that they're convinced they could flog albums with bags over their heads.

KEISHA said: "Every band has their own unique selling point. For us, it's that we write our own material and we're not contrived at all. We're very hands on.

"We've always sold records on the strength of the music and never for the visual side of things.

"We could sell albums with paper bags on our head."

Despite their apparent disinterest in their outer beauty, the trio looked stunning as they opened the new Boots store in London's new Westfield shopping centre yesterday.

They took a giant step back from the limelight, by serving customers on the tills for a White Ribbon Alliance charity event.

Keisha said: "I've never had another job, the Sugababes is all I've ever known.

"I never did work experience or anything, so to do something like this is really exciting."

But with stiff chart competition from the likes of GIRLS ALOUD and the PUSSYCAT DOLLS, there's no time for a stint as a cashier.

So... The Jackson 4?

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Michael Jackson has issued a statement saying he will not participate in a Jackson 5 reunion in 2009.

"My brothers and sisters have my full love and support, and we've certainly shared many great experiences, but at this time I have no plans to record or tour with them," he said. "I am now in the studio developing new and exciting projects that I look forward to sharing with my fans in concert soon."

The statement comes in response to his brother Jermaine Jackson's recent comments at a TV industry function in Sydney, where the musician said the Jackson 5 has plans to reunite next year.

Jermaine Jackson was in Australia yesterday (Oct. 29) to help launch a new "greatest hits" TV channel for Foxtel. "This has been a long time coming for the Jackson family to get back together," he told the Australian Associated Press.

"It is just the timing, so what we've been doing is working on the music and all the logistics. It is going to be more like a family affair, Janet's going to open and, of course, the original Jackson 5 ... Michael, Randy and the whole family ... We're in the studio, we're planning on being out there next year."

The Jacksons received a lifetime achievement award from BMI in early September in Los Angeles, but brother Marlon made no secret of his displeasure with Michael's absence at the ceremony.

Asked where Jackson was, he told the Associated Press, "I don't know. I think he's in Egypt riding a camel or something."

The Jacksons rose to fame in the late '60s recording for Motown. Brother Michael had become a solo star by the late '70s, although he remained in the group through the 1984 album "Victory." One last release, 1989's "2300 Jackson Street," featured limited involvement by him and Marlon.


I really don't think Michael talks to anyone but his kids.
Also, since it's related to Michael, who married Lisa Marie Presly...Does anyone remember hearing anything else about Navarone's (her brother) drug shit that was in the tabloids?

    Forgive Durden - Toba The Tura (Ft. Chris Conley)

what is this, ass hole day?

After his death, West Australian premier Alan Carpenter stood next to Ledger's father Kim and announced a new venue in his hometown of Perth would be named the Heath Ledger Theatre. Mr Ledger said he was honoured and intensely proud.

But the government has now scrapped the plans for the new $91m (pounds 36m) performing arts complex after the star, just four months after they were announced.

The new premier Colin Barnett said the decision had been reversed and Ledger would be commemorated in another part of the complex.

Ledger died from an accidental prescription drugs overdose in New York in January. He was 28.

Mr Barnett said: "He was a young actor who had some great successes, and I have no doubt was headed for an outstanding career.

"But he lost his life at a very young age, so we never saw the true achievement that Heath Ledger may have made."

The decision to name the theatre after Ledger divided the local arts community. Some artists and performers spoke out at the time, labelling the move a cynical marketing exercise, because Ledger was not a theatre actor. They likened the plans to naming an concert hall after AC/DC frontman Bon Scott.

Ledger grew up in Perth and retained a close connection to the city, despite spending the majority of his time in America.

Shadow treasurer Ben Wyatt said the move had "disappointed" the Ledger family, who have declined to comment on the matter.

"It genuinely distresses me that he [Mr Barnett] could have such callous disregard for the Ledger family, who've got through an enormous amount of distress over the loss of Heath," he said.

"Alan Carpenter spoke to Kim Ledger this morning and the family is disappointed that this issue has come up again and described the way the premier has done that as an unsavoury process."

Pulitzer winner to weave a story on Spidey 4

Image and video hosting by TinyPic
Spider-Man has caught a Pulitzer prize winner in its web.

Playwright David Lindsay-Abaire has been hired to write the script for Spider-Man 4. He won the Pulitzer for his 2007 drama Rabbit Hole.

Sony are shooting the fourth and fifth films back to back, though they're yet to confirm whether Abaire is also working on the fifth instalment.

Director Sam Raimi and stars Tobey Maguire and Kristen Dunst are all returning for the franchise, which has grossed $2.5 billion worldwide. With Lindsay-Abaire's involvement it has been suggested the film will focus more on character than spectacle, which would address some of the flaws from last year's Spider-Man 3.

It's not the first time that the Spider-Man films have had a Pulitzer winner working on the screenplay. Celebrated author Michael Chabon worked on Spider-Man 2.
Spider-Man's fourth adventure is expected to be released in 2011.


-more from source-

Columbia Pictures has certainly reached in to leftfield for their latest commission to the "Spider-Man 4" fold. Everyone's favourite neighbourhood Spider-Man has already had a touch up by scribe James Vanderbilt in an effort to realise the fourth instalment in Sam Raimi's record-breaking franchise. And now Columbia has signed up playwright David Lindsay-Abaire (who worked on the incoming "Inkheart"), to take the lead on the second draft duties.

Sam Raimi and Tobey Maguire have officially confirmed that they are back as director and star, respectively, as are series producers Laura Ziskin and Avi Arad. Kirsten Dunst also is expected to return for the latest movie featuring the ol' webslinger.

Of course, the plot is under lock and key with only the slightest of rumours hinting that Spidey may have to square off against The Lizard (played by Dylan Baker in the films).

Aside from the breaking and entering, dangerous driving pursuits and stalkerazzi tactics, they say ass-hatted things:

Now whether or not you believe Zac's gay and Vanessa's his beard or that Zanessa was MFEO (or fall somewhere between these two extremes), this seems like harassment to me. All they are trying to do is walk through an airport. I'm proud of Zac Efron and Vanessa Hudgens for doing their best to ignore him. But props to the older dude with Zac for telling it like it is.

TBH, I've always had a love/hate relationship with paparazzi pics of Zac, cause I know how much he says he hates them. But I admit, I can't help but want to see zefron... I just wish they could be a little bit more civilized towards (and safe around) the celebrities that pay their way through photos.

NBC's "Kath & Kim" has become the latest frosh skein to score a full-season pickup.

Peacock announced the back nine order Friday afternoon. Reveille and Universal Media Studios are behind the skein, which stars Molly Shannon and Selma Blair. "Kath & Kim" is based on the Australian laffer of the same name.

Peacock has aired four segs so far, averaging a 2.6 rating and 6 share among adults 18-49. Show has also averaged 6 million viewers. "Kath" has retained all of its "My Name is Earl" lead-in in those two measurements, and has built by 4 percent with adults 18-34.

In announcing the pickup, NBC Entertainment exec VP Teri Weinberg said the net has "incredible confidence" in the show's auspices and that NBC believes "it's a perfect fit with our Thursday night comedies."

"Kath & Kim" revolves around a self-absorbed, dim mother and daughter duo. John Michael Higgins and Mikey Day also star.

Michelle Nader exec produces, along with Rick McKenna and original creators Gina Riley and Jane Turner. Riley and Turner also starred in the Australian series.

Singer brands the Followill clan sellouts

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Despite being a Kings Of Leon fan, Liam Gallagher has said that he doesn't like the band's new album 'Only By The Night'.

The singer was discussing his favourite records with Rolling Stone when he hit out at the Followill clan.

"I like Kings Of Leon, but I don't know about this fucking new record," he declared. "I like the old stuff. I like (Caleb Followill’s) voice. When they first come out I was going, 'Who the fuck is this?' They were cool, and now they've all got their sleeves cut off."

Gallagher went on to suggest the Tennessee band had "sold out", and that they were trying to emulate U2.

He added: "It seems to me they've gone for the bucks, man. I'm not dissing them because I fucking really like them, but it's like they've got this U2 sound and you can do better than that."

Gallagher though did list the bands he is into, declaring: "The band that I like at the moment is Kasabian. They've got it. They've got the look, the tunes, they say just the right amount of stuff, they don't fucking rub it and rub it and rub it. I like them and the Arctic Monkeys are great, but they're not rock stars. That's really it."

“Eden is like this gushing heart. She sees someone and (excitedly) says, ‘Hi, hi, hi!’ If Savannah is crying, she says, ‘Crying, Savvy crying? It’s okay Savvy.’ It’s just the sweetest thing ever.”

Bruce Springsteen's Halloween Treat

Unbeknownst to most, Bruce Springsteen is actually quite the Halloween fan. Each October, the Boss and his wife/bandmate Patti Scialfa traditionally open their New Jersey property so visitors can see their mansion-size Halloween display. But, according to Springsteen’s website, “due to ‘catastrophic success’ (read: too many visitors for the neighborhood to handle) and concern for the safety of kids and parents! we won't be having our usual Halloween display this year in Rumson.”

Instead, Springsteen has recorded a brand new song based on the mythical garden state spook story of The Jersey Devil. According to legend, in 1735 Mother Leeds gave birth to her 13th child, who "transformed into hooved beast and thrown in the river." He has since haunted Central and South Jersey, inspiring the the name of the state's hockey team along the way. Springsteen’s new composition, “A Night With The Jersey Devil,” recasts the story as a lo-fi blues song that at times recalls the singer's The Ghost of Tom Joad album. Both the track and “A Night With The Jersey Devi" video are now available for free online.

Twilight's Happy Halloween

By: Joal Ryan

Los Angeles (E! Online) – Sure it's Halloween, but Christmas trees are already up—and so are Twilight ticket sales.

Fandango reported that as of noon today that the teen vampire movie was accounting for 51 percent of all daily ticket sales.(E! Online and Fandango are both owned by Comcast.) At MovieTickets.com, business was less frenetic—Quantum of Solace was the No. 1 attraction, followed by High School Musical 3—but Twilight still came in as the site's third-hottest ticket.

All in all, not a bad showing considering the movie isn't already in theaters (like HSM3), and isn't opening in two weeks (like the new James Bond). It's opening in three weeks.

"Twilight is the type of movie with a hardcore fanbase that wants to get its seat secure as soon as possible," says Box Office Mojo's Brandon Gray.

Still, Gray cautions that advance-ticket sales don't tell the full box-office story.

"Sometimes it leads to a massive opening, like Sex and the City and Harry Potter," Gray says. "But it doesn't always."

The blood will tell. In about 21 days. Around the time when Valentine's Day cards go on sale.

40 Reasons To Wish The MPAA Rating System A Very Unmerry 40th Birthday

The MPAA ratings system tomorrow celebrates its 40th birthday — four full decades of tormenting filmmakers, distributors and, ultimately, audiences with an inconsistent moral code symbolized by those infamous G, PG, PG-13, R and NC-17 ratings. In an interview published Thursday in Time, MPAA chief Dan Glickman and ratings board chair Joan Graves reflected warmly on the system's evolution over the years; and while we agree that Hollywood's self-governance is preferable to the zealotry of the Hays Code and other puritanical watchdogs who preceded it, Graves and Co. remain the city's worst censors by any other name. So join us after the jump to commemorate the MPAA's milestone with a look back at 40 decisions affirming its less-than-inspiring legacy. Unhappy 40th, everyone!

Amy Goes Home

Image and video hosting by TinyPic 
Accompanied by her good friend Blake Wood and her father Mitch Winehouse, troubled singer Amy Winehouse kept the theatrics to a minimum as she left the London Clinic today en route to a private consultation.


Wino appeared aware and cognizant after just a week of treatment. It was less than a week ago that she was spotted giggling vacantly in a taxi as she was whisked off on her way to the London Clinic.

Amy’s spokesperson Chris Goodman says that his superstar client had “gone for some checkups” and claims that she merely had a chest infection.

In June, the 25-year-old singer was hospitalized with a severe lung ailment that her father attributed to smoking cigarettes and crack cocaine. Some reports even suggested she was suffering from the early stages of the incurable disease emphysema.

Miss Winehouse is expected back home today.

Mos Def for President!

Here's a cute video with Mos Def talking about if he were elected President of the United States. He's super witty and charming during the video, saying that "If I was president, America would be cool again, for real!"

He also says that if he were president, America would start making cooler and better cars, because "it's embarrassing" that everyone is beating the States. He also says that he wants snazzier phones, and not ones "that look like they come from the '80s."

Mos also suggests a "voting bonanza," where people could have a whole weekend to vote and vote at lottery booths. I must admit, it sounds like good times.

The super sexy and smart hip hop artist also suggests a 100 year moratorium on the following words and phrases:
-in the club
-that's hot
-that's sick
-droppin it like it's hot
-dippin it low

Def says of his suggestion not to say the word shortie, "I don't know how that's going to help things, but I'm just certain that it will. I have that feeling in my heart."

It's really funny and clever, so make sure to check out the video!

Studs Terkel 1912-2008

Studs Terkel dies

The author-radio host-actor-activist and Chicago symbol has died. "My epitaph? My epitaph will be 'Curiosity did not kill this cat,'" he once said.

Louis Terkel arrived here as a child from New York City and in Chicago found not only a new name but a place that perfectly matched--in its energy, its swagger, its charms, its heart--his own personality. They made a perfect and enduring pair.

Author-radio host-actor-activist and Chicago symbol Louis "Studs" Terkel died Friday afternoon in his home on the North Side. At his bedside was a copy of his latest book, "P.S. Further Thoughts From a Lifetime of Listening," scheduled for release this month. He was 96 years old.

Nicole Kidman in Parade magazine (November '08)

Nicole Kidman is tall—much taller than you’d expect. Shoeless, she stands close to 6 feet; in heels, the sky’s the limit. In addition, her contours are roughly those of a pipe cleaner. “I’d love to look like Sophia Loren,” she says with a sigh. Kidman is in London with Loren filming a small role in the movie musical Nine. “Sophia is drop-dead gorgeous. And as curvaceous as they come—still. Do I look like that? No.”

No. The 41-year-old star and I are talking in her hotel near Buckingham Palace. With her hair pulled back, and wearing jeans, black boots, a man’s striped dress shirt, and a sleeveless sweater, Kidman looks more handsome than the drop-dead gorgeous she has been in so many films. In her latest movie, the epic Australia, due out Nov. 26, Kidman plays an uptight English lady of the 1930s, but in real life, she speaks in the flat tones of her native Sydney, Australia, and has a humor to match. “Part of being Australian is being able to make fun of myself,” she says, “because if I can’t do that, then someone else is going to do it for me.”

Just 20 years on, grunge seems like ancient history

Twenty years ago this weekend, Nirvana released Love Buzz, the first single by the band who would ignite grunge from an interesting local scene to a global phenomenon.

And this is significant why? Because grunge wasn't just another musical or youth trend - it was the ultimate expression and fusion of most of the defining cultural, ideological and social threads of the modern western world. Feminism, liberalism, irony, apathy, cynicism/idealism (those opposite sides of one frustrated coin), anti-authoritarianism, wry post-modernism, and not least a love of dirty, abrasive music; grunge reconciled all these into a seminal whole.
