Marvel Vs. Edward Norton, Round 2

As a response to Marvel Studios President of Production Kevin Feige's statement that Edward Norton was not asked to reprise the role of Bruce Banner/The Hulk in the upcoming Avengers movie (Feige said that the decision was made as a result of "the need for an actor who embodies the creativity and collaborative spirit of our other talented cast members"), Norton's agent, Brian Swardstrom, made an attempt to clarify the behind-the-scenes goings-on from the actor's point-of-view.

"This offensive statement from Kevin Feige at Marvel is a purposefully misleading, inappropriate attempt to paint our client in a negative light," he told Hitfix, the site that broke the story. "Here are the facts: two months ago, Kevin called me and said he wanted Edward to reprise the role of Bruce Banner in 'The Avengers.' He told me it would be his fantasy to bring Edward on stage with the rest of the cast at [Comic-Con] and make it the event of the convention. When I said that Edward was definitely open to this idea, Kevin was very excited and we agreed that Edward should meet with [director] Joss Whedon to discuss the project. Edward and Joss had a very good meeting (confirmed by Feige to me) at which Edward said he was enthusiastic at the prospect of being a part of the ensemble cast.

"Marvel subsequently made him a financial offer to be in the film and both sides started negotiating in good faith," he continued. "This past Wednesday, after several weeks of civil, uncontentious discussions, but before we had come to terms on a deal, a representative from Marvel called to say they had decided to go in another direction with the part. This seemed to us to be a financial decision but, whatever the case, it is completely their prerogative, and we accepted their decision with no hard feelings... We know a lot of fans have voiced their public disappointment with this result, but this is no excuse for Feige's mean spirited, accusatory comments. Counter to what Kevin implies here, Edward was looking forward to the opportunity to work with Joss and the other actors in the Avengers cast, many of whom are personal friends of his. Feige's statement is unprofessional, disingenuous and clearly defamatory. Mr. Norton's talent, tireless work ethic and professional integrity deserve more respect, and so do Marvel's fans."


All I can think of is, "Don't make him angry. You wouldn't like him when he's angry."

The Federline Siblings: Starbucks On Satruday


Kevin Federline and his girlfriend Victoria Prince took out all 4 of Kevin's kids to a local park in Chatsworth, Calif. on Saturday (July 10). Sean Preston, 4 ½, Jayden James, 3 ½, Kori, 7 ½, and Kaleb, 5 ½ all got along great as they played at the park and enjoyed some frozen caramel Starbucks drinks.

Kori and Kaleb's mother is Kevin's ex-girlfriend, actress Shar Jackson while he and ex-wife Britney Spears are parents to Sean and Jayden.

I’m really fortunate to have [Shar and Britney] in my life … and as mothers of my children," Kevin said. "I love both of them very much. I still do to this day.”

Hayao Miyazaki Compares iPad Use To Masturbation

Hayao Miyazaki is the greatest animator alive. And he does not like the iPad.

Noted for Studio Ghibli classics like My Neighbor Totoro, Miyazaki has stated that he rarely watches TV, does not own a computer or a fax and doesn't even own a DVD player. Instead of e-mail, he writes letters. He also makes wonderful films.

In an interview in the July issue of "Neppuu", the Studio Ghibli published pamphlet, the famed animator does not pull any punches when discussing the iPad, or what he calls the "game machine-type thing" that people are "stroking with strange gestures".

"For me, there is no feeling of admiration or no excitement whatsoever," Miyazaki said about the iPad. "It's disgusting. On trains, the number of those people doing that strange masturbation-like gesture is multiplying."

Miyazaki also noted that he also got "fed up" when everyone on the trains started reading manga and then later when everyone began using cell phones on the trains to presumably send text messages.

He might seem like an eccentric technophobe, but he is coming from an "All I need are pencil and paper" point-of-view. That might all he need. He's Hayao Miyazaki! And with those simple tools, he can create brilliance. But not everyone is talented as Miyazaki.

Studio Ghibli, his animation company, is currently working on a Nintendo DS and PS3 game called "Ni no Kuni". Miyazaki is not directly involved with these projects.

Team #USA's Landon Donovan Found World Cup Final 'Hard to Watch'

One guy who wasn't glued to his television set when Spain took on Netherlands in the World Cup Sunday afternoon? Team USA star Landon Donovan.

Donovan admitted to PopEater he had not watched the game on Sunday afternoon. He blamed it on a busy schedule -- and the fact that he still believes America should have been fighting for the championship.

"It is hard to watch," Donovan, 28, said. "You think you should be there."

The LA Galaxy star (and former LA Dodgers season ticket holder) spent Sunday at Dodger Stadium, meeting players and fans and throwing out the first pitch for the game against the Chicago Cubs. He was in no rush to get home and watch the Word Cup finals set on his TiVo.

Distancing himself was part of the letting-go process for Donovan after the team's crushing loss to Ghana 2-1, which knocked them out of the tournament. "You're so immersed in it for long," he told us. "You want to get away from it. Besides, you know you can beat all of these teams."

Donovan even pointed out Team USA's victory over eventual World Cup champion Spain in 2009 to reach the Confederations Cup final.

"We beat them last year and they end up winning," Donovan said. "But that's why they are the champions [of the World Cup]. They won."

Donovan said he has been amazed by the US reaction to his team's effort in the World Cup. On the first day back to America he was mobbed on the floor of the stock exchange with USA coach Bob Bradley. "Almost every person came up to me and said something along the lines of, 'Thank you for inspiring us,'" Donovan said. "It was really cool."

And will this feeling translate to renewed interest in the sport in the US? "My thing is, if we made a few more fans along the way, that eventually helps your sport get better and better. That's all you can do."

Pink Floyd's David Gilmour And Roger Waters Reunite For Charity Gig

Last night, Saturday 10 July, David performed at a charity event in aid of the Hoping Foundation (‘Hoping’ stands for ‘Hope and Optimism for Palestinians in the Next Generation’)… with one Roger Waters, who some of you might know.

There’s the photographic evidence, if you don’t believe me – from rehearsals.

The event, organised by Bella Freud and Karma Nabulsi, took place at Kidlington in Oxfordshire, England and raised a most welcome £350,000.

They performed four songs before 200 guests, accompanied by Guy Pratt (on bass and acoustic guitar), Harry Waters (on keyboards), Andy Newmark (on drums), Chester Kamen (on guitar) and Jonjo Grisdale (also on keyboards).

Songs were ‘To Know Him Is To Love Him’, which, I’m told, regularly featured in Pink Floyd sound checks way back when, followed by Pink Floyd favourites: ‘Wish You Were Here’, ‘Comfortably Numb’, and the one that got everybody singing along, ‘Another Brick in the Wall (Part Two)’.

Well, well, well… Bet you weren’t expecting that. Hoping, indeed.

Rachel Bilson runs some errands; stops to sign a gay marriage petition while doing so

Former OC-star Rachel Bilson was seen out and about in Beverly Hills rocking a cute black dress and hiding behind big, dark sunglasses! The star stopped to sign for a gay marriage rights petition and then proceeded to take something out of her bag...I wonder what that could have been? Maybe a pen or a donation of some sort? I guess we'll never know! At least actress Bilson isn't moping at home after the split with her on and off screen beau Hayden Christensen! The pair were engaged for quite some time, but at a recent movie premiere Rachel wasn't wearing her diamond engagement ring! Trouble in paradise! We hope she finds someone else soon! Personally I wouldn't mind seeing her back with OC co-star Adam Brody! Now that was a cute couple!

Dakota Fanning arriving @ LAX.

She’s always on the move, and yesterday (July 11) Dakota Fanning was spotted arriving at LAX International Airport.

The “Eclipse” babe looked cute and casual as she smiled while passing the paparazzi, sporting a grey top and black trousers.

In related news, Dakota told press that when she was a little girl her parents had aspirations of her becoming a professional tennis player.

“When I was younger the plan for me was to be a tennis player, and my mom had me working with her coach from, like, three-years-old. I told her one day that I just get too hot playing tennis. I just don’t want to do that. She was like, ‘What do you mean you get too hot? That’s what you do when you play sports.’ So they quickly realized that maybe that wasn’t going to be my thing.”

Lindsay Lohan will soon be trading in her designer duds for a stiff cotton Los Angeles County Jail jumpsuit come her three-month sentence, likely to be served at the Century Regional Detention Facility in Lynwood, California.

Legal experts say she'll likely serve between two weeks to a month due to the sheriff's long-standing policy of releasing nonviolent offenders early due to overcrowding, presuming she'll also get time off for good behavior. She is due to surrender to the court and begin her sentence on July 20.

INTERVIEW: Kristin Bauer (Pam) from True Blood

After a week off for the holiday (hey, even vampires need some time off), True Blood returns tonight for what is sure to be some amazing blood-sucking action. The third season has gotten off to an amazing start with the introduction of werewolves, a King, and some vampires with questionable motivations (ahem, Franklin Mott). One of my favorite characters on the show, Pam, is taking on a bigger role this season. The fabulous, sassy, preppy, powerful vampire has had some of my favorite scenes so far. I recently had the chance to speak with Kristin Bauer (who plays Pam), about her character, working very closely with Alexander Skarsgard (her maker Eric Northman), and environmental causes that are very close to her heart.

Harvey Pekar died

Harvey Pekar, 70, the graphic novelist whose autobiographical comic book "American Splendor" chronicled his life as a filing clerk, record collector, freelance jazz critic and one of life's all around misfits, was found dead early today at his home in suburban Cleveland.

The AP reported that police were called to Mr. Pekar's home by his wife about 1 a.m. and the artist was found between a bed and dresser. Mr. Pekar had been suffering from prostate cancer, asthma, high blood pressure and depression, police said.

"American Splendor" developed a cult following among those who don't ordinarily read comic books. Quite possibly the first autobiographic comic, it was filled with Mr. Pekar's wry observations and complaints about the monotony of life in Cleveland and his frustrations in human relationships.

Initially, Mr. Pekar approached cartoonist R. Crumb who he knew through their mutual record collector's love of jazz, to illustrate his self-published work. Later, Mr. Pekar's illustrators included Drew Friedman and Joe Sacco.

After a diagnosis of prostrate cancer in curtailed his writing in the 1990s, Mr. Pekar returned in with "Our Cancer Year" (1994), a colloboration with his wife, Joyce Brabner.
A 2003 movie, "American Splendor" was based on the series with Paul Giametti playing Mr. Pekar. It led to yet another collaboration with Brabner, "Our Movie Year" (2004).

In one of the movie's finest moments, Brabner meets Mr. Pekar for the first time at the airport after a lengthy correspondence. She tries to imagine what he looks like and conjurs four different images of him by four different illustrators.

Second Mel Gibson tape emerges

Mel Gibson, under investigation for domestic violence, admits to hitting Oksana Grigorieva and TWICE threatens to kill her in an explosive new audio tape obtained and released exclusively by RadarOnline.com.

The enraged actor tells the mother of his eight-month old daughter Lucia “you deserved it” after she says that he hit her and broke her teeth.

Mel’s stunning admission could be a powerful piece of evidence against him in the criminal investigation that is headed for the district attorney’s office and right now being conducted by the L.A. County Sherriff’s Department.

The new tape features a ranting, out-of-control, Mel who screams and is so enraged at times that all he can do is pant heavily, seemingly incapable of speaking. It is one of the most powerful, crazed and bizarre episodes ever caught on tape from a major Hollywood star. You can listen to the tape here exclusively on RadarOnline.com.

The tape is not only big trouble for Mel in the domestic violence investigation but he could face additional criminal charges based on two death threats heard clearly on this new audio.

As Mel and Oksana argue, the Braveheart star becomes increasingly incensed, and tells her: “You need a f*cking bat in the side of the head. Alright, how about that?”

Later on the tape, Mel alludes to killing and burying her. As the former couple’s argument grows worse and worse Oksana tells Mel: “You’re gonna answer one day, boy, you’re gonna answer.”

Infuriated, Mel asks if she is threatening him, and Oksana says she is not. “I’m not the one to threaten,” the Russian-born beauty says.

And that’s when Mel makes what certainly can be reasonably interpreted as another death threat, telling Oksana: “Threaten ya? I’ll put you in a f *ckin rose garden you c*nt! You understand that? Because I’m capable of it. You understand that?”

WARNING: This audio contains graphic and profane language. It has been left unedited so that the full impact of Mel’s rant can be heard. RadarOnline.com has not altered this tape in any way.

Grace Jones defends Studio 54 parties, keeps new lover a secret

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

GRACE JONES is keeping tight-lipped about the identity of her latest lover - in a bid to keep any of her pals from snatching him away. The iconic singer previously dated Swedish action star Dolph Lundgren and French photographer Jean-Paul Goude before marrying her bodygu ard Atila Altaunbay in 1996, although they later split.

Jones admits she's now found love with someone new - but she's keeping the romance private and refusing to reveal who her boyfriend is. She tells U.K. talk show host Alan Carr, "I'm seeing someone. I just do n't want to say who it is because there was a time in my life where every one knew who I was seeing and before I knew it, all my girlfriends were a fter him. And all my boyfriends were after him too. He's hidden."

The legendary hitmaker also defended New York City nightclub Studio 54, insisting "moderation" was always practised by its patrons. Jones was a regular fixture of the 1970s hotspot, which became known for sexual activity and rampant drug use that occurred after hours.But she maintains the discotheque was a far more civilised place than its notorious reputation suggests.

She told Carr, "It wasn't as bad as they say - it was cool. It was cool in the sense (that) there was moderation, beli eve it or not. That way you could have conversation. You know, you didn't go home with your dress kind of torn off of you like I've done a few times (elsewhere). Mick Jagger, everybody was there, Liz Taylor, everybody. Every night they had a different theme." Jones claims she had wilder nights at Big Apple gay bar the Paradise Garage - because venue bosses allegedly provided partygoers with drugs instead of serving liquor.

She adds, "At the Garage, there was a big bowl of whatever concoction t hey had there. The Garage was the club that opened at four, with a blend of juices or something and they used to spike it with acid and stuff. Bec ause actually they didn't have a liquor licence so you know, hey let's put acid inside!"

Eminem Shouts Out Lil Wayne During Scotland Gig

He took the stage nearly 45 minutes late — allegedly due to "laser pen fears" — but Eminem more than made up for the delay with a fiery headlining performance on Saturday at the T in the Park festival in Scotland.

Em's made just a handful of live appearances over the past year (his last U.S. gig was a headlining slot at the Voodoo Fest in New Orleans back in October), yet he didn't show any signs of rust at T, ripping through a 29-song set that spanned his entire career.

Backed by a live band, he opened with "Won't Back Down," his collaboration with Pink off his comeback Recovery album, then worked through tracks including "3 a.m." (from last year's Relapse), "Kill You" (off The Marshall Mathers LP) and his breakout "My Name Is" (from 1999's Slim Shady LP).

Em shouted "Free Lil Wayne!" before launching into "No Love," the Haddaway-sampling song that features both rappers (obviously, Weezy couldn't make it to the show). He dedicated "Love the Way You Lie" to "everyone who's been in a f---ed up relationship" and paid tribute to his late friend (and former D12 member) Proof, telling the Scottish crowd about the time the two had devoured "weed brownies" in Amsterdam and "started speaking in tongues."

EXCLUSIVE: Christina Milian, The-Dream Separate

Image and video hosting by TinyPic
Christina Milian and The-Dream have decided to separate, his rep confirms to UsMagazine.com.

"Terius 'The-Dream' Nash is saddened to announce that his marriage to Christina Milian was unsuccessful. The couple reached this decision in late 2009, but decided to keep the news private in efforts to protect their baby daughter Violet. They ask for consideration and respect for their family moving forward," his rep tells Us.

The split confirmation comes as racy photos surface of The-Dream and his assistant of about a year, Melissa Santiago, frolicking in the Caribbean.

The producer and singer (who released his third album, Love King, on June 29), 32, proposed to Milian, 28, in July 2009 with a six-carat diamond ring from Ivanka Trump's jewelry line. The couple eloped last September in Las Vegas, and said "I Do" a second time in Rome in December. They welcomed daughter Violet five months ago.

In April, Milian told Us Weekly that her baby girl has "a lot of personality! She laughs a lot!" She had already lost 27 of the 45 pounds she gained while expecting by "eating salads like crazy," she said.

The-Dream has three children from a previous marriage to singer Nivea.

Native Americans rage over MTV's 'The Dudesons'

A skit on MTV's "The Dudesons in America" has a Native American advocacy group crying foul.

The American Indian Movement of Santa Barbara has started a boycott against MTV and its advertisers over an episode of the "Jackass"-style series in which four Finnish friends perform stunts as they assimilate to American culture.

In the episode, which aired in May, the Dudesons performed tasks to qualify as honorary Indians under the direction of Native American actor Saginaw Grant. The stunts included one Finn mounting a horse while wearing a feathered headdress and little else and one involving a totem pole falling painfully on a man's crotch.

Inception Post: Entertainment Weekly Review

Beware the critic who claims the ability to analyze Inception authoritatively after one viewing. As engrossing and logic-resistant as the state of dreaming it seeks to replicate, Christopher Nolan's audacious new creation demands further study to fully absorb the multiple, simultaneous stories Nolan finagles into one narrative experience. First time around, the movie — part sci-fi fantasy, part gun-toting heist pic, part mindfreak, all filmmaker brio — is dazzling and buzzy. It's a rolling explosion of images as hypnotizing and sharply angled as any in a drawing by M.C. Escher or a state-of-the-biz videogame; the backwards splicing of Nolan's own Memento looks rudimentary by comparison. Only repeated exposure can clarify for each spectator not only what's going on, but also whether the emotional payoff deepens enough to warrant the arbitrary complexity of the game.

Beyonce Knowles Ghostwriter Rumor Addressed by Producer

Image and video hosting by TinyPic
Many people wonder whether Beyonce Knowles really takes songwriting credit for the tracks which she doesn't pen herself since many rumors on the web said so.

On that matter, Bangladesh who is involved in the making of her 2008 "I Am...Sasha Fierce" has an interesting thing to say.

"It doesn't matter who is writing or producing the songs," he told Bossip. "Who is delivering them, is what matters. It doesn't matter if Beyonce is there physically writing the song. I mean even if she's not, it doesn't mean that she can't. It might be a case of her not having time."

His further statement implies that the ghostwriter rumor is true. He said, "People from the outside looking in want to know whether or not she writes her own songs, she's on a level where things are handed to her. People wanna be a part of what she's doing. She either wrote it, or she can put her name on it. It doesn't matter because that's the boss she is."

Still, she may not make it much longer. "Let you know if I make it to day 4," she told one of her followers.

Kutcher, 32, is having an even harder time. "9 hrs into the master cleanse. I want a steak, a beer, and a blow-pop. Hmmm this is gonna be rough," he wrote Saturday.


Di Bonaventura on Megan Fox’s Transformers Departure

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

ComingSoon.Net caught up with producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura and got the inside on Megan’s departure from the Transformers franchise. As you all know, the script for the movie was all set for Transformers 3 when reports of Megan being fired and/or her leaving on her own came out. Di Bonaventure tells ComingSoon:

It’s one of those things that built to a pressure point. I think she knew and we did, I think we all tried really hard to make it work together, it just wasn’t working.

His response when asked about how Megan’s departure affected the production:

Definitely some script chances for sure. I wouldn’t say a tremendous number, but yeah, absolutely there were some changes, and I think as we’re going along, we’re discovering new ones we have to make as a result of them.

He also goes on to saying that he thinks Transformers 3 will most likely be the last installment, at least for him and director Michael Bay. But that doesn’t mean Paramount won’t reboot the series with new talent down the line.

It may not be the end of the line of Transformers for Hasbro and Paramount, but I would think so. (For) Michael, I’m sure it is. He’s spent a lot of years working on one thing.

Cheryl Cole cancels X Factor boot camp and V Festival, taking two months off

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Malaria-stricken Cheryl Cole has pulled out of the X Factor Boot Camp stages and cancelled her V Festival appearance.

The singer, 27, has been signed off work for two months. Last night she was surrounded by her mum Joan and friends, including US dancer Derek Hough, as she continues to recover in a top London clinic.

Her spokesman said the X Factor judge was “recovering well” after being released from intensive care on Friday.

But he added: “Following medical advice Cheryl will not be able to take part in X Factor’s Boot Camp stage or perform at V.”

X Factor bosses will now hold crisis meetings this week to decide if they need a second guest judge for the Boot Camp at Wembley Arena on July 22.

Previous judges Pussycat Doll Nicole Scherzinger and Katy Perry have been shortlisted to fill in, as well as Cheryl’s close friend and Girls Aloud bandmate Kimberley Walsh.

An X Factor spokesman said: “Our priority is to ensure Cheryl is fit and well before she returns to work and to give our contestants a fair and proper opportunity to compete in the show.”




Lindsay Lohan might have been sentenced to 90 days in the slammer last week by an angry judge, but that doesn't mean the troubled young actress is going down without a fight.

"Lindsay has no intention of going to jail," a friend of Lohan's tells me. "The only thing that Lindsay did wrong was hire the wrong attorney and now she has fixed that."

Lindsay now has a new attorney, Stuart V. Goldberg, who has arrived in Los Angeles from Chicago claiming, "We're going after them."
Lindsay is supposed to surrender to the court by July 20, but now that her new lawyer is in place, sources tell me Lindsay is confident she won't have to spend a minute in jail.

"She is paying her new lawyer a fortune to fix this mess. She doesn't care what it takes," an insider tells me. "If Lindsay needs to start a Facebook campaign or set up protests or something like that she is totally into it. They are treating Lindsay differently because she is a star, so it's about time she used her star power to help her. She's seen the movie 'Chicago' several times, so it's not like she doesn't know how this sort of thing works!"

Will someone please hand Mr. Goldberg his tap shoes, please? I think it's time for the fancy footwork rag!

Of course it won't be the end of the world -- or financial success -- for LiLo if she does serve time; I previously discovered Lohan could earn a whopping payday (to the tune of $1 million) for an exclusive post-jail interview.

"Financially, it's the best thing that could have ever happened to Lindsay," a magazine insider tells me. "It's no secret that Lindsay has been in financial trouble for a while. She will earn more money from her post-prison interview than she ever earned acting."


Julie Bowen to play Kevin Spacey's wife in Horrible Bosses

Modern Family actress Julie Bowen has joined the cast of Horrible Bosses as Kevin Spacey’s wife, sources confirm exclusively to JustJared.com.

“Her role is hilarious,” our source tells us. “Funnier than her role on Modern Family, if that’s possible.”

The flick is about three friends (Jason Bateman, Jason Sudeikis, Charlie Day) who conspire to murder their awful bosses (Spacey, Jennifer Aniston, Colin Farrell) when they realize they are standing in the way of their happiness.

Margaret Cho Talks About Dating Gay Men, Adam Lambert, Gaga

Margaret Cho talks to about actively seeking romantic relationships with gay men, lesbian comics who come out later in careers, advice for gay Christians, Adam Lambert, Of Montreal &  Lady Gaga.

Fran Drescher recently mentioned that the man she was married to for 21 years turned out to be gay. Have you ever unwittingly dated a gay man?

Not unwittingly, no. I very consciously dated many, many gay men.


Margaret: Even though it’s weird considering my stand-up comedy, I can also be a very non-sexual person. And, sometimes gay men are very romantically interested in me, but not sexually. But romantically, which is a different thing, too. So I’ve actually had quite a few romantic relationships with gay men that are not sexual at all. But in the realm of romance I think that there’s like, many gay men that have sought that of me. Because for gay men, also the idea of romance is sometimes neglected in gay culture. It’s a very kind of feminine ritual, a feminine trait or a feminine ideal of romance, and so I think many gay men who have indulged that with me, not in a sexual way, but in a romantic way. So, I have quite a few gay “husbands”, I think there’s different ways to be a ”husband”, there’s different ways to have “marriage”, and now I’ve certainly had that with quite a few gay men.

And what do you get out of it?

Margaret: Oh, I get a lot out of it! I mean, I get a lot of very satisfying connections, and a heart connection, and a love connection. There is love there, just because that isn’t sexual doesn’t mean it’s not as profound and loving as a relationship that I would have with somebody that I am sexual with.

Isn’t that just a friendship?

Margaret: It is a friendship. But romance is a kind of modified friendship. It sort of goes a little deeper. If you’re not involving sexuality, I think, for me, relationships can be a lot deeper. You can get into a spiritual realm, and that’s really deep, so I’m very happy with my relationships with gay men. Maybe it’s sort of what Elizabeth Taylor and Montgomery Clift had, a very romantic relationship that wasn’t sexual, but that was very deep.

Tuli Kupferberg dies at age 86 :(

Poet, artist, musician, author and all-around countercultural icon Tuli Kupferberg died today in Manhattan. The co-founder of the Fugs was 86, and had been in ill health following a pair of strokes after the last two years.

Kupferberg was already a minor literary star in New York when he, Ed Sanders, and Ken Weaver formed the Fugs in 1964. Already in his forties, Kupferberg was one of the original Greenwich Village Beats, and in addition to his own work as a poet, writer, and cartoonist, he'd championed a number of other Beat writers and appeared as a character in Allen Ginsberg's "Howl." Despite his self-mocking description as "the world's oldest rock star," Kupferberg's work with the Fugs turned out to be highly influential to a number of genres: their satirical and unusually frank treatment of sex and drugs helped rock 'n' roll grow up; their placement at the center of the Greenwich Village scene encouraged connections between influential members of the folk community (the Holy Modal Rounders' Steve Weber and Peter Stampfel later joined the band); and their aggressive, anti-authoritarian political stance would echo decades later in the punk scene.

A restlessly creative figure, Kupferberg remained productive well into his eighties, and towards the end of his life was still playing occasional gigs with the Fugs and hosting his own YouTube series. He left behind a legacy of dozens of books of poetry as well as his recorded material with the Fugs. In 2008, "CIA Man" was featured in the Coen Brothers' Burn After Reading.

Pitchfork seek attention and exposure, completley trashes /\/\/\Y/\ with 4/10 review

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Pop music has a way of forgiving artists on a hot streak. You can say, do, or get accused of horrible things, but most of time, if you're delivering the goods, the public will remain on your side. This is why R. Kelly is like Teflon, and why outrage regarding Michael Jackson's scandals and peculiarities only truly hobbled him when the quality of his music began to slide in the early 1990s. Madonna, too, has proven herself capable of multiple comebacks following creative missteps and P.R. disasters. Right or wrong, the social contract is simple: If you bring the hits, we'll put up with your shit.

With /\/\/\Y/\, M.I.A. has broken that contract. And she could not have chosen a worse time to do it. The album comes not long after a New York Times Magazine cover story that portrayed her as a pretentious, truffle fries-eating phony spouting radical politics at odds with her extremely comfortable lifestyle. The piece was devastating to her credibility, and her childish response-- putting the author's cell number on Twitter-- only made matters worse. It seems likely that /\/\/\Y/\ will only accelerate this M.I.A. backlash. The record is a shambling mess, devoid of the bangers that characterized Arular and Kala, two of the stronger pop albums of the past decade. It aims to capture a technological and cultural zeitgeist in its over-stimulated, digitally degraded sound, but the songs are too flimsy to carry her bold conceit. Without compelling tunes, the obnoxious public antics, dubious political messages, and thin voice that had grated on her naysayers have become impossible for even dedicated fans to ignore. It's as if everything that was great about M.I.A. has been stripped from this music, leaving behind only the most alienating aspects of her art and public persona.

Melina Kanakaredes exits CSI:NY


Another long-running CBS procedural has been rocked by a high-profile departure: Melina Kanakaredes is leaving CSI: NY. Sela Ward, meanwhile, is in talks to replace her.

“We hoped Melina would return to CSI: NY for another season, but we respect her decision to move on,” said CBS (network and studio) in a statement. “Her amazing talent and invaluable contribution to the success of the series are greatly appreciated and will not be forgotten. She will forever remain a friend to the network and studio and we wish her the very best.”

In her own statement, Kanakaredes said, “I made some amazing and lifelong friendships during my six seasons on CSI: NY, and I will treasure them forever.”

CBS declined further comment, but a source tells me that Kanakaredes was approached with a new deal but she opted to move on. I’m told her last episode has already aired. Ward, meanwhile, is the odds-on favorite to fill the show’s leading-lady void.

This marks the fourth onscreen shake-up at a CBS drama in the past month. As previously reported, A.J. Cook, Liz Vassey, and Eddie Cibrian have been released from their roles on Criminal Minds, CSI, and CSI: Miami respectively (although Cook will return briefly this fall to give fans closure).


Crap. If it was her choice then I respect her decision to move on, but I'm going to miss her a lot -- the show is going to lose something amazing in her character Stella.


What Does Angelina’s Inner Thigh Tattoo Actually Say?

"“Um, it’s for Brad.”"

That’s what Angelina Jolie said as she demurely avoided a reporter’s question about her new inner-thigh tattoo, which was first revealed in the August issue of Vanity Fair. The blogosphere has worked itself into a tizzy trying to figure out what the tattoo actually says. My guesses? Ahem: “Whisky & Beer,” “Whisky Boy,” or “Wiley Beard.” Seriously, I have been staring at Angie’s perfect thighs for over 15 minutes now, and that’s the best I can come up with.


I see "Wifey Boon." What do YOU see, ONTD?


Just kidding! He's not mad.

Hero Complex reported yesterday that Marvel Studios dropped Ed Norton from its "Avengers" movie plans. Now Norton is telling his side of the story. Here's his statement, as posted Monday on his Facebook page:

"As most of you know, I don't like to talk much about the business of making movies because it means a lot to me to protect the audience's fullest enjoyment of the 'magic' that films can have.

But I am so appreciative of the outpouring of support from fans of the Hulk and the Avengers that I feel it would be rude not to respond. So here goes: It seems it won't work out for me to continue playing Bruce Banner for Marvel in 'The Avengers.'

I sincerely hoped it could happen and be great for everyone, but it hasn't turned out as we all hoped. I know this is disappointing to many people and that makes me sad. But I am very sincerely grateful to Marvel for extending the offer and even more so for giving me the chance to be a [part] of the Hulk's long and excellent history.

And I really can't thank the fans enough for how much enthusiasm you've sent my way about what Louis [Leterrier] and I tried to do in our turn with the legend. It means a lot to me. I grew up with Banner and Hulk and have been a fan of every incarnation. I'm really proud, and very blessed, to have been one of them and will be thrilled to see him live on through other actors. Hulk is bigger than all of us, that's why we love him, right?"

Pretty classy.

Too Hollyweird for Hollywood? David Lynch asks fans to help fund his movies.

There used to be a time when a filmmaker had a clever idea, took it to a Hollywood studio executive and, by the end of a long lunch, had secured enough money to make their next movie.

For lesser known film directors, this process involved a few more begging bowls being taken to a few more financiers and subsidising bodies. But still it usually worked.

But now in the credit crunched climate of tightened belts and attenuated film funds, film-makers are turning to a new model: "crowd funding".

This involves the cinema-going public being invited to show their support for film-makers by giving to online appeals, in return for film mementos or even a credit at the end of their chosen film.

The latest high profile director to sign up to this method is David Lynch, famed for such cult films as Eraserhead and Mulholland Drive. Lynch, who was a trained artist before he turned to making films, has produced a self-portrait which any fan who is willing to donate $50 (£33) to a documentary about his life and work, will be sent as a gift.

Jon Nguyen, the producer for the film, Lynch Three, said he wanted to "give something back" to the fans who were being asked to donate money.

World Cup HBIC Is Retiring... No It's Not Koman Coulibaly

BERLIN -- No more World Cup, no more octopus oracle.
Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Paul, the octopus who became a pop culture sensation by correctly predicting the outcome of as many World Cup matches as he has legs -- all seven of Germany's games plus the Spain-Netherlands final -- is going to retire.

The intuitive invertebrate will "step back from the official oracle business," Tanja Munzig, a spokeswoman for the Sea Life aquarium in Oberhausen, told AP Television News.

"He won't give any more oracle predictions -- either in football, nor in politics, lifestyle or economy," she said. "Paul will get back to his former job, namely making children laugh."

However, Paul took one last curtain call on Monday. Aquarium employees presented the octopus with a golden cup -- similar to the official World Cup trophy.

Although the cup was garnished with three mussels, Paul ignored it for several minutes as it was lowered into his tank.

He finally picked off one mussel and devoured it in front of television cameras.

Paul won worldwide attention as he called all of Germany's games correctly -- including its semifinal defeat by Spain. He crowned his career by forecasting correctly that Spain would beat the Netherlands in Sunday's final.

time to party!!
bye Paul! I think he's old for octopus years so he might be joining octopus heave soon.

DILF Post - Mike O'Malley Interview

Mike O’Malley is a familiar face. The man has been in the TV business for quite some time, starring in CBS’s YES, DEAR for six seasons and recurring on shows like NBC’s MY NAME IS EARL and PARENTHOOD — and yes, he’s the dude in those Time Warner Cable commercials too — but some might say that O’Malley’s big break came just this past year when he was cast as Chris Colfer (Kurt)’s dad, Burt Hummel, in FOX’s breakout hit, GLEE.

Though the role involves quite a bit of comedy — something O’Malley is certainly used to doing — there was also a great deal of very difficult material this season, including Kurt telling his father that he is gay and the journey the two then followed.

O’Malley — a dad himself — did some work that really blew viewers away and the Academy of Television Arts and Sciences took notice, nominating him for an Emmy in the Outstanding Guest Actor category this past Thursday.

GIVE ME MY REMOTE got some one-on-one time with him, so we could talk about the whole experience…

You know a special kind of Brangeloonie is diving into Brad's dumpster right now to find whatever is left of his beard. Bitch is totally going to super glue that shit to her pubic area.

Is the presence of Joe Manganiello distracting you from super hot Alexander Skarsgard when watching True Blood? I know before that dishy werewolf arrived in Bon Temps I didn’t have eyes for anyone but Eric.

Manganiello suited up to play at the Taco Bell All-Star Legends & Celebrity Softball Game held at Angel Stadium of Anaheim on Sunday, July 11th, 2010 in Anaheim, California.

Other big names in attendance were Desperate Housewives hunk James Denton, Mad Men star Jon Hamm, The Green Mile star Michael Clarke Duncan, and professional players Ozzie Smith and Mike Piazza.

Stealica Keys Doesn’t Trust Nicki And Swizzy?

Swizz Beats and Nicki Minaj recently hooked up in an NYC studio to get it in. Whoa, slow down now kids, not like that. I meant to get it in for her album of course. However you weren’t the only one thinking the two might be up to something else as it has come out that A. Keys wasn’t really feeling the two being alone together.

Insiders at the studio where Swizz and Nicki worked together say that Ms. Keys was in attendance the whole session and made her presence known. Word is that Alicia just didn’t think it was good for those two be alone and requested to be there to which her man happily obliged.

So no scandal here people…yet! Would you trust your super producer fiancée alone with Nicki a.k.a. Nicki Lewinsky? Didn’t think so…

Splice becomes highest-grossing Canadian film of the year

The genetic sci-fi thriller Splice has passed the $2 million mark at the Canadian box office to become the highest grossing Canadian film this year.

Thus far, the film has grossed $2,064,788.

The Canada-France coproduction, shot in Ontario and directed by Vincenzo Natali, stars Adrien Brody and Sarah Polley as genetic engineers who secretly use human DNA in a hybrid experiment that results in the creation of an intelligent being.

Another Canadian film managed to crack the Canadian box office top 10 this week. Piché: Entre ciel et terre is a biopic about an Air Transat pilot, Robert Piché, who became a hero after successfully landing a plane suffering from double-engine failure on a flight from Toronto to Lisbon, Portugal. Although he saved the lives of 306 passengers and crew members, his past convinction as a drug smuggler was later exposed by the media.

The film drew $566,944 after opening on Wednesday, July 7 in Quebec. While competing against Hollywood fare, it charted at number eight on the Canadian box office results for the July 9 weekend.

Not Smurf Sex...not yet anyway

While it's not entirely clear what will be included in the extended version of "Avatar" slated for release on August 27, the film's star, Sam Worthington, hinted at what could be in the film's extra eight minutes during a press day for Full Clip Productions, the comic book imprint Worthington launched with his partners John Schwarz and Michael Schwarz at Radical Studios.

"There were several different hunts that the characters go on," Worthington told MTV. "There's a sex scene that everyone keeps talking about, which is going to be unique," he added, laughing. "But there's a lot of other stuff to do with the Na'vi, and then there's also a lot of live-action stuff as well."

Since it became the biggest movie of all time, James Cameron has been largely mum on details about a follow-up to his 2009 blockbuster "Avatar," probably due less to secrecy than the long gaps between his projects. In the meantime, Fox announced earlier this week that it will re-release the film in theaters with eight new minutes of footage.

Although the running time of the original cut of the film was well over two hours, Worthington indicated that any excised footage was removed because it was already long enough, and Cameron didn't want to push the audience's patience too far. "That [material] got taken out because of time constraints, and at the time, not knowing if the movie was going to be successful or not."

It remains to be seen how much more of "Avatar" audiences will want to see, at least in theaters. And although Cameron hasn't volunteered more than vague details about sequels, it will be interesting to see how quickly even its most fervent fans will move on to thoughts of a follow-up. But Worthington indicated that if the director wanted to release more versions that are eight minutes longer than the last one, he could probably do so for years to come without exhausting his yet-unseen supply. (damn!)

"I think he's got another eight hours of footage, to be honest with you," Worthington said. "So I'll be surprised to see what the eight minutes is."

I checked! This wasn't posted!!

This post was brought to you by this nonsense:

Sorry Mods...failing at posting right today, I hope the code goes through this time

Spielberg's Fallen Skies Viral Campaign Goes Live.


Earlier today our friends over at ComingSoon.net got a package with a beat up Flip camera and a note that said 2ndMass.com. According to the site – the viral site mentioned is:

“The website contains geographical markers pointing to a location that Google Maps indicates is in San Diego. Meanwhile, one of the website’s hyperlinks contains a countdown clock that seems to indicate that something will be happening during the con. The address on the back of the package matches that of Turner Entertainment.”

Speculation is that this is a viral campaign for the Steven Spielberg produced TNT drama, Fallen Skies, starring Noah Wylie in the post-apocalyptic TV show about alien invaders.

The series is scheduled to premiere sometime in mid-2011 on TNT, and will star Noah Wyle and Moon Bloodgood as the leads, and co-star Jessy Schram, Seychelle Gabriel and Maxim Knight, with Steven Spielberg producing.

The pilot is from Robert Rodat (“Saving Private Ryan”), and will follow human resistance fighters led by Wylie as they hide out int he mountains and strike back at the invaders in the aftermath of a successful alien invasion that nearly wipes out the human population. Could this series be as good or as compelling as the beloved Jericho series? or is this another ABC’s Invasion? time will tell but the viral seems to be a little fun.

This was basically an excuse to post pictures of Noah Wyle and his fine ass. Honestly, I'm really excited for this show. Aliens and Spielberg can do no wrong in my eyes. 'Taken' was amazing.


Whoopi Goldberg Defends Mel Gibson's Racist Rant

We're no experts, but we think Whoopi Goldberg could probably find a better cause to take up than the defense of Mel Gibson, who was recently caught on tape spouting racial slurs during an argument with estranged girlfriend Oksana Grigorieva.

On 'The View' (weekdays, syndicated), Goldberg vehemently defended Gibson, arguing that she knows the actor personally and doesn't think he's a racist.

"I don't like what he did here. But, I know Mel and I know he's not a racist," Goldberg said.

"Well, that language certainly sounds racist to me," Joy Behar countered.

"I can't sit and say that he's a racist, having spent time with him in my house with my kids," Goldberg replied. "I can't say it."

Old Spice commercial gets "Outstanding Commercial Category" Emmy nomination!

Emmy nods, mustache mods for Old Spice ads

July 8, 2010 | 11:25 am

"The Man Your Man Could Smell Like" Old Spice body wash spot was among the prime-time Emmy Award nominees in the outstanding commercial category announced Thursday morning, and we smell winners all the way around. Even if the ad doesn't ultimately win (though, honestly, we don't see how that could happen) it's still a win of sorts for advertising agency Wieden+Kennedy, production company MJZ, (the ad recently won a trio of advertising awards) and especially for one of our favorite pitchmen, Isaiah Mustafa, who has been so busy lately he's probably going to need all the Old Spice body wash they throw at him.

On Thursday morning, we caught him popping in on an otherwise insufferable fourth hour of "The Today Show" in New York City, last week we spoke to him by phone as his second Old Spice commercial was about to debut online and in theaters right before the Fourth of July holiday and he's landed a deal with NBC.

But what he didn't mention was the surprise, new 15-second commercial that was posted online on Wednesday. We won't spoil it, but as you can see from the embedded video below, calling him "Isaiah Mustacha" wouldn't be all that inappropriate.
