A message to all the “cat people” on twitter flipping out cause I gave up our cat for adoption.
To those of you somehow hung up on the notion that I kicked the walker out from underneath our cat and threw her into the streets, first of all, cats don’t use walkers, so that’s a ridiculous notion. Secondly… I found my aging cat a god damn loving home! Ease up with the death threats for heaven’s sake!
Also, allow me to reiterate this fact: The cat is still alive! I didn’t kill the cat! I gave it up for adoption! I even did so with the full disclosure that she sometimes pees and poops where she pleases. A courtesy Bella’s previous owners did not extend to us.
Another fact: The cat is 15 not 19. That was a clerical error on my part. I apologize. I actually hadn’t looked at the official birth certificate since WE adopted her 5 years ago. Just figured she was 19 or 20 or maybe 30 or 40 cause of the weird skin things. Anyways. Point is, she is a spirited 15 years young and will most likely live for another 40 to 50 decades given her healthy diet of premium cat food and hatred. Bottom line, and not that this is any of your fucking business weirdos, but my wife and I want to start a family and we ABSOLUTELY CANNOT have an animal that shits all over the house. Sorry. If you are a parent you will understand. And if not, that probably explains why you have such a hard on for cats. Just sayin’.

Director Guy Moshe's "Bunraku" isn't all about fighting, but you could certainly be forgiven for thinking otherwise. Set in a future where bullets have been outlawed and conflicts are started and finished with fists, "Bunraku" follows two men — a Drifter played by Josh Hartnett and a samurai, Yoshi, played by Gackt — out on a deadly mission with a mutual goal… one that's destined to end in blood.

Listen closely to the clip of Nancy yakking with Brooke Burke after she waltzed to "Moon River." You'll hear what sounds like a fart escaping from someone. As far as we can tell, there are only three possible culprits.
Nancy Grace claims she's been FRAMED in the "Dancing with the Stars" fart mystery ... and tells TMZ an "investigation" is underway to find out who REALLY dealt it.
Grace -- who was doing a post-dance interview on the show last night when someone let it rip -- tells TMZ, "As an ear witness on the scene, I can absolutely exonerate Tristan, myself and Brooke."
She adds, "However, the rest of the cast -- seated just inches away -- all remain under grave suspicion. The investigation continues."
For all the non-believers ... Here is photographic evidence there IS a Tupac sex tape.
TMZ broke the story ... Tupac received oral sex from a mystery woman back in 1991 ... and it was all caught on tape. The 5-minute video shows Tupac in a living room, holding a cocktail in one hand and a blunt in another.
An unreleased Tupac song is playing in the background, as the rapper sings along, wiggling his hips -- all the while getting serviced by the woman.

Björk is not one for half measures: When she embarks on a new project, it's guaranteed to be a fully conceived artistic statement. For more than two decades, the Icelandic pop musician has created album after album of genre-bending, globe-spanning, forward-thinking songs with oversized intentions and flair that's distinctly her own. Björk has been similarly imaginative in other media, too; in her wild, colorful costuming and bizarre hairstyles, and in her mind-blowing music videos. There's no one else out there quite like her.
So it's fitting that Biophilia, Björk's latest and most ambitious project yet, began as a collection of songs written around themes of nature, science and humanity's relationships to both. For most artists, that'd be a lofty enough concept on its own. But Björk heavily researched astrophysics, string theory, neurology, biology and other areas where science and music meet. Her big ideas didn't stop there.

Neutral Milk Hotel's Jeff Mangum surprised the crowd gathered at the Occupy Wall Street protest tonight with a solo acoustic set. He lead singalongs to "Holland, 1945", "Ghost", "Song Against Sex", "Two-Headed Boy Part 2", "In the Aeroplane Over the Sea", "The King of Carrot Flowers Part 1", and "Oh Comely". The "we know who our enemies are" line in the latter song got an especially big cheer. He also covered the Minutemen's "Themselves"
After performing, he said, "You guys have done a beautiful fucking thing."

Briefly: If you’ve been dying to see some full-frontal Fassbender, mark your calendar. Fox Searchlight has just tweeted a U.S. release date of December 2, 2011 for Steve McQueen‘s NC-17 drama Shame, which stars Michael Fassbender as a sex addict who finds his orderly life disrupted by the arrival of his troubled sister (Carey Mulligan, who also gets naked in case you were wondering). The distributor picked up the rights last month in Toronto.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, among the NSFW highlights we can expect from the film are “male and female full-frontal nudity, graphic depictions of straight/gay/threeway sex, masturbation, urination,” and something really gruesome that we’re not going to reveal here so as to avoid spoilers. Aside from its explicit nature, the film has also drawn lots of attention for powerful performances by leads Fassbender and Mulligan — no surprise considering how much praise both actors have earned for their talents in the past. Shame marks the second collaboration between McQueen and Fassbender, who previously worked together on the critically acclaimed Hunger.
From the official Dragon Age site: What do you get when you combine one of the richest RPGs with the creator of one of the most watched web series of all time? Dragon Age™: Redemption. This all-new six-part web series is based in the Dragon Age universe and created by Felicia Day, the force behind the blockbuster web series "The Guild." Scheduled to premiere this summer, Dragon Age: Redemption is set in the same time period as BioWare's Dragon Age II.
"I'm a huge Dragon Age fan, and I have been looking for a follow up project to 'The Guild' for quite some time," said Day. "I was thrilled when the opportunity to work with BioWare materialized. Dragon Age: Redemption allows me to tell a fantasy story in a new way, using a universe I really love. It has been a dream working together."
In Dragon Age: Redemption, Day stars as Tallis, an Elven assassin hired by the Qunari to capture a rogue mage intent on wreaking havoc throughout the world. In her quest to find this dangerous mage, Tallis is joined by other companions who are not always aligned in their beliefs and goals, but who band together to defeat their foe, in an attempt to restore peace and balance to this dark fantasy universe.
From the Dragon Age Wiki: The series will begin airing on October 11, 2011, to coincide with release of the Mark of the Assassin DLC, in which Tallis plays a prominent role.
Dragon Age II was bad enough, but this is just embarrassing. I am embarrassed on behalf of everyone involved, including Felicia Day and her weird face.

Because songwriters worry more about catchy rhymes than deep meaning, song lyrics can be more abstract and esoteric than Jackson Pollock farting chalk dust into a napkin. The problem is that some fans swear that every nonsensical song has some deeper interpretation just waiting to be decoded. That's why so many classic songs have mythical (and often dark and disturbing) alternate meanings that fans insist are true.
They're almost always wrong. For instance ...

Apparently, Captain Jack Sparrow REALLY doesn’t like having his picture taken.
In an interview for an upcoming issue of Vanity Fair, actor Johnny Depp reportedly compares a magazine photo shoot to being sexually assaulted. “You just feel like you’re being raped somehow,” Depp said. “Raped … It feels like a kind of weird — just weird man.” Understandably, the quote — part of an excerpt released Tuesday by the magazine — ran afoul of many readers, prompting the Oscar-nominated actor to issue a statement apologizing for his remarks.“I am truly sorry for offending anyone in any way. I never meant to. It was a poor choice of words on my part in an effort to explain a feeling. I understand there is no comparison and I am very regretful. In an effort to correct my lack of judgment, please accept my heartfelt apology.”
It was definitely a stupid comment, but he obviously didn't mean it and I'm prepared to let it go. But ONTD tends to be less forgiving than that, so my hopes ain't high. :P
For the first time since “Arrested Development” was cancelled in 2005, the entire cast assembled for a Bluth Family Reunion moderated by New Yorker television critic Nancy Franklin; even Ron Howard joined via telephone. The big news of the afternoon: If all goes according to plan, the series will return to television in a nine- or ten-episode limited-run series, set to film next summer, with each episode focussing on a single member of the Bluth clan. And series creator Mitchell Hurwitz said that he is halfway through the screenplay for a reunion film and is “eighty per cent” sure it will happen.

Reality star John Devenanzio, who says he is popularly known in the entertainment world as "Johnny Bananas," has gone ahead with threats and sued the producers of the recently completed HBO series, Entourage. The plaintiff is demanding that the network be permanently barred from distributing episodes containing "Johnny Bananas," which would wipe out the seventh and last season of the show.
This past summer, Devenanzio, who appeared as a cast member on MTV's The Real World Key West and several other MTV reality shows, had his lawyer fire off a cease-and-desist letter to HBO. The threats apparently did nothing to scare the network. So, on Monday, Devenanzio filed a complaint in New York Superior Court against HBO, parent Time Warner, and "Entourage" creator Doug Ellin.
The lawsuit charges the defendants with featuring an "unwarranted, unauthorized, and unfavorable mention of plaintiff's name and personality, and allusions to plaintiff's physical and mental character."

Last O Music Awards, we celebrated the proceedings by enlisting Chiddy of Chiddy Bang to break the Guinness World record for Longest Freestyle Rap. This time, we’re bringing fans as well as a cadre of strong-hearted dancers together to break a new record, while also supporting a worthy cause.
As you know, the awards will take place on Halloween, but up until now we’ve been mum on where they would be going down. Well, the black cat is out of the bag: We’ll be invading Los Angeles on Saturday, October 29, at which point we will kick off a massive dance extravaganza in order to break the Guinness World Record For Longest Dance Party — at The Roxy Theatre on the Sunset Strip.
The whole deal be livestreamed right here on OMusicAwards.com, and will wrap up after 55 hours when we nab the record (hopefully). The show itself will begin shortly after — 11:30pm ET/ 8:30pm PT on OMusicAwards.com — at another location in the City of Angels.
Pretty cool, right? Well, it gets better. Our troupe of brave dancers won’t be tangoing and twisting in vain: We plan to use this World Record attempt to raise awareness for LGBT youth issues (bullying in particular) by allowing fans to donate money during the stream.
Funds will be split between GLSE (the Gay, Lesbian & Straight Education Network), It Gets Better, The Gay Straight Alliance Network (GSA), Human Rights Campaign (HRC) and GLAAD (Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation). Fans will also be able to tap into social media to support the cause and root for their favorite dancers.
We’re strapping on our dancing shoes in preparation, so start exercising those typing fingers — we’re going to need your support to get through those last sweat-stained hours.

Abs-olutely delighted ... Jodie Marsh shows off her new figure and her bodybuilding trophy
Jodie was famous for flaunting her body in tiny outfits but she has admitted she was secretly dismayed at her "flabby" appearance — and even went two years without sleeping with a man.

Actress JoAnna Garcia Swisher is returning to the ABC network in a new comedy series about a woman who moves in with her husband’s family.
The multi-camera show was apparently the subject of a three-network bidding war Monday, as Deadline has reported that NBC, CBS, and ABC were looking to snatch the show.
The show is the brain child of creator/executive producer Shana Goldberg-Meehan, who was behind Better With You, which also starred the Cuban actress, but only lasted 22 episodes.
Love JoAnna, so I'll watch if this gets picked up. And I really miss Better With You, despite the fact that it ended very nicely.
Biggest Loser Johnny Forger Talks About Weight Gain From Advil
The Biggest Loser contestant Johnny Forger gained 2 pounds
this last week at weigh-in and to his surprise it was because he was taking too many Advil. "It was a shock to me because I was working hard and I anticipated maybe a four- or five-pound drop," Forger told reporters. "But I had overdone the Advil – like eight or ten a day – and that causes a lot of fluid retention. I made a mistake."
Even though he is gone from the Ranch, Johnny has learned a lot while on the show and plans to incorporate it into daily living. "They made a big difference in what they taught me. It's simplified the eating process and I understand what the exercise is all about," he said. "It really kicked in."
But it wasn't just learning about exercise, but how to fuel his body rather than overeating.
"I was settling into accepting that maybe because of my age I couldn't get out of a couch as easily," Forger said. "I now learned that age doesn't matter, the aches don't matter. You just have to address them and don't let them rule you. You rule them."
Having overcome his aches and pains, the hard work has paid off and it's noticeable. "I'm in my 40s," Forger can now fly safely without a seatbelt extender. "It's gone and there's a big, big piece of seatbelt that's left to go around me," he said of losing 59 lbs. so far.
Johnny continues to workout out doing boxing and training for the end-of-season Biggest Loser marathon.
"When they first talked about the marathon, I thought to myself, 'Not a chance in hell they'll see me out there.' But I've done some pretty amazing things in the last month," said Forger, who recently completed a 13-mile walk. "I'm ready to head out and give it my all."
wut do u think ONTD? do u have 2 use a seatbelt extender?
TWITTER queen Lady Gaga affectionately calls her brood of fans “Little Monsters”; they in return swear fidelity to their “Mother Monster.” Rihanna, currently the most popular woman on Facebook, with more than 45,000,000 “likes,” enlists her troops to serve the “Rihanna Navy.” Katy Perry, who this year matched Michael Jackson’s record of having five No. 1 songs from the same album, has her litter of “Katy Kats.” Then there’s the rapper Nicki Minaj, who labels her female fans “Barbs” (after the Mattel doll) and her gay male fans “Ken Barbs.”
The umbrella term for these new subsets of super fans, who devotedly discuss their idols’ merits across the Internet, is “stans,” a nickname cribbed from the Eminem song “Stan” that appeared on the rapper’s “Marshall Mathers LP” from 2002.
In the song, the M.C. tells a fictional tale of a fan named Stan who becomes so maniacally obsessed with Mr. Mathers that he murders his girlfriend and kills himself by the track’s end. Now the term has been playfully appropriated to describe a new breed of celebrity zealot for the digital era: an impassioned believer who may spend days crowing about how flawless a favorite artist looked at a party for an energy drink, or refuse to admit that a lyric was flubbed on “The View.” Ask stans why the artists they champion failed to make a dent on the iTunes chart this week and risk an online threat.

When Nancy Grace slipped a nipple on Dancing with the Stars, it caused a huge uproar. Now imagine if Nancy Grace ripped off her top, exposed her breasts, humped her partner, took off her G-string, and appeared completely naked. Oh, and Nancy Grace was a gorgeous model. That's what happened Sunday on Argentina's version of Dancing with the Stars.
If you're an American you're used to most network television being squeaky clean, but this is Argentina so this is only safe for work if you work at a Nevada brothel.
I'm not entirely sure why Cinthia Fernandez ended up naked on Bailando por un Sueño, but here she is, completely nude. She starts the dance off in a racy outfit with her toga-clad partner. It's some sort of Roman orgy scene, but with only two people. What follows is less of a dance and more of a mutual strip tease, where Frenandez and her partner pull off each others clothes revealing skimpier and skimpier outfits while they writhe and contort around the stage. By the time she is grinding in his lap while he pours wine over her naked body it's something that even Nomi Malone in Showgirls would find over the top. She's only wearing a G-string and he's in his Speedo and just when you thought it couldn't get any crazier, he whips off her panties and she is standing there, on national television, completely naked. It's something to behold!
Most of the info about her and the show is in Spanish, but from what little I can discern from Google Translate, this seems to be causing a bit of controversy. Also, Fernandez' parents were in the audience, which, wow! This isn't the first time the former Big Brother contestant has gotten naked in public so maybe they're used to it.
The best part is that this doesn't seem to be that out of the ordinary for the show which has aired numbers that were straight up porn in the past. If I remember correctly, the concept for the show is different from ours where a regular person gets to dance with a star. If that's true, that makes Fernandez' partner the luckiest schmo in the whole damn world.
The last time we visited the show, while the camera work did focus much more on the woman's crotch and there was more blatant sexual contact, there wasn't actual nudity. Let's leave it to Fernandez, our new personal hero, for pushing the envelope on a show that regularly is steamier than Red Shoe Diaries. We really need to find a way to get this show on satellite TV or something. It's so unfair that we get Nancy Grace's nasty nipple and they get all of this!

Rihanna roars to a 20th Billboard Hot 100 top 10 single faster than any other solo artist, as "We Found Love," featuring Calvin Harris, darts 16-9 in its second chart week.
Having first graced the Hot 100 the week of June 11, 2005, with the eventual No. 2-peaking "Pon De Replay," Rihanna reaches 20 top 10s in a span of just six years and four months, besting Madonna for the quickest collection of top 10s among soloists (from an artist's first Hot 100 appearance) in the chart's 53-year history. Madonna tallied her 20th top 10, "Hanky Panky," the week of July 28, 1990, for a stretch of six years and nine months after her chart introduction with "Holiday." Rihanna, thus, bests Madonna's mark by five months.
Among all acts, Rihanna's run to 20 top 10s is the second-fastest. Only the Beatles sprinted to the sum more quickly, taking just two years, seven months and one week between their chart entrance with "I Want to Hold Your Hand" (Jan. 18, 1964) and "Yellow Submarine," which sailed 52-8 the week of Aug. 27, 1966. The Supremes are pushed to third-place among all artists, having collected their 20 career top 10s in a span of six years, five months and one week in 1964-70.
With the vault, Rihanna becomes the 14th artist to garner as many as 20 Hot 100 top 10s and just the fifth woman to earn the honor. Among women, Madonna leads with 37 top 10s - the highest total among all artists - followed by Mariah Carey and Janet Jackson (27 each) and Whitney Houston (23).
Prior to Rihanna this week, Carey had been the last artist to reach 20 top 10s when "Thank God I Found You," featuring Joe and 98 Degrees, blasted 22-2 on the Feb. 12, 2000, chart (a week before it led the Hot 100 for one frame).
Notably, in an era where songs can scale the Hot 100's upper reaches in their debut week solely on the strength of hefty first-week digital sales, all 20 of Rihanna's top 10s have received radio support concurrent with their moves into the Hot 100's top 10. Seventeen of the 20, in fact, have reached the top 10 on Radio Songs, with eight bounding all the way to No. 1. And, even the three songs that missed the Radio Songs top 10 still made the list's top 40 ("Break It Off," No. 11; "Russian Roulette," No. 35; and, "Cheers (Drink to That)," No. 13).
"Found" jumps into the Hot 100's top 10 with dual Digital and Airplay Gainer accolades. The first single from Rihanna's sixth studio album, due Nov. 21, charges 7-6 on Digital Songs (147,000 downloads sold, up 25%, according to Nielsen SoundScan) and 75-38 on Radio Songs (33 million audience impressions, up 129%, according to Nielsen BDS).

The release of Joe Jonas‘ debut solo album “Fastlife” is less than a week away. The 22-year-old singer-songwriter has been doing his rounds of promoting it by making appearances on the Today Show, Regis & Kelly, The Ellen Degeneres Show, and is currently on a headlining tour around the US with Jay Sean. Here is your chance to get a taste of the album before it drops next week. “Fastlife” sees Joe trade in the pop/rock sound we were use to for a more mature urban and dance/electronic sound. The album includes production credits from Danja, Brian Kennedy, Rob Knox, and more. When listening to the album as a whole its clear much work has been put into this project. Whether it will translate into the mainstream audience, I’m just not sure yet. What do you guys think?

The show made TV history as being one of the few US entertainment shows to have been aired on the same weekly time slot and on the same network for over 20 years.
Throughout it's time it played host to a wealth of musicians such as Jerry Lewis, Elvis Presley, The Beatles, The Supremes, The Doors, Beach Boys & The Rolling Stones.
Now, according to MusicRadar you will be able to relive classic performances from The Rolling Stones when the complete DVD package becomes available on Nov.1 .
Hit's such as 'Time Is On My Side', 'Honky Tonk Women', 'Gimme Shelter' & 'Love in Vain' all feature on the DVD entitled 'The Rolling Stones on Ed Sullivan'.
"The best Rolling Stones TV performances are on these shows," says Andrew Solt, executive producer of the sets. "On the concert films and on other shows you don't get the same production values, and here the sound is as good as the visuals... [On Ed Sullivan] Groups knew they would appear in front of 35 million people so they rehearsed and made sure they would look good before doing on. Knowing they were playing live on TV made them do their best."
It seems like only yesterday that the fresh-faced teens of the CW’s "90210" were roaming the halls of West Beverly High. Now, like so many other teen dramas, the kids are off to college. Will the show thrive? Will it falter? Will it land somewhere in the middle? Only time (and ratings) will tell.

Oscar-winning Slumdog Millionaire filmmaker Danny Boyle has teamed up with James McAvoy for new thriller Trance.
A remake of Joe Ahearne's 2003 film, Trance centres on an auction house assistant who executes a heist with a group of professional thieves. The plans go awry when the assistant suffers a blow to the head and forgets where he stored the stolen painting.
Rosario Dawson and Vincent Cassel co-star in Trance, which Boyle is filming before he turns his attention to next year's 2012 London Olympics opening ceremony.

This is one Idol winner who is living up to the hype.
Mercury Nashville/19/Interscope artist Scott McCreery’s debut studio effort, Clear as Day, will debut at #1 on next week’s HITS Album sales chart with between 150-175k.
That was based on one-day sales figures from those music retailers who aren’t otherwise occupied selling albums to the Wall Street protestors.
The only previous Idol winner who can make that claim is first-season champ Kelly Clarkson, whose RCA debut Thankful, went straight to #1 in 2003. Carrie Underwood didn’t debut at #1 until her second album, Carnival Ride, entered at the top spot in 2007. Daughtry was an Idol runner-up whose second album, 2009’s Leave This Town, debuted at #1.
A unnamed Russian billionaire dropped $135,060 on his bar bill at Board Room nightclub early Wednesday morning.
But the item that really stands on the bill out is the bottle of champagne the generous spender -- who did not want to be indentified -- spent on actors Heather Graham and Zac Efron, who were sitting in the same section.
He dropped $100,000 on a 15 litre bottle of Armand de Brignac Nebuchadnezzar Champagne, also known as "Ace of Spades."
...The two actors are in the city filming the movie "Heartland" [actually it is untitled, js] and spent about two hours in the club -- hardly enough time to drink the entire bottle, which contains enough bubbly to fill about 20 regular sized bottles.
According to the receipt, the rest of the bill included two magnum bottles of Grey Goose, two magnum bottles of Dom Perignon, four bottles of Crisal and three magnum bottles of Laurent Perrier Rosé.
And the lucky server walked away with a gratuity of $22,510.
And who says nothing good ever happens after midnight?
Yay for the server and for whoever got to drink the leftovers really.

The world is now reacting to the very sad news of Steve Jobs' death. We are collecting the thoughts and condolences of people like Bill Gates, Larry Page, Tim Cook, Mark Zuckerberg, Sergey Brin and President Barack Obama himself.
But perhaps the most important reaction is the one by Steve Wozniak. According to the LA Times, he was "overwhelmed and could not get in touch with his emotions". His only words: "People sometimes have goals in life. Steve Jobs exceeded every goal he ever set for himself."

It's been 7 years since her cycle of America's Next Top Model aired and Ann Markley is still getting consistent modeling work. This is almost unheard of for models who got their start on ANTM. While cycle 3 winner Eva Pigford is hosting lame reality shows no one watches, 3rd runner up Ann has been booking jobs with Athleta, L'Oréal, Target and Shape magazine, and has starred in commercials for Travelocity and Wheat Thins. And here she is in a brand new commercial for Olay, and dare I say she is looking better than ever.

Andrew W.K. Has 'Nice Scar' From Ke$ha Tattoo, Plans Josh Groban Collaboration
You have to be a certain kind of person to let Ke$ha tattoo you. Only someone slightly outrageous would offer up their flesh to Nashville's wildest pop star, someone like Andrew W.K., a guy who isn't afraid of taking risks -- or, ending up with a life-long scar.
"It got infected," W.K. tells Spinner. "It's an unfortunate aftermath and my body ended up rejecting the ink and I had to go to the doctor but it actually left a nice scar which was, in fact, cooler than the tattoo."
Ke$ha recently tweeted to apologize to Andrew W.K. for the unfortunate incident:
But the rocker isn't harboring any bad blood about the scar, a simple, straight line "in the exact shape of the tattoo. "I think Ke$ha's a fantastic songwriter," he says. "I get excited about anyone who's working in this celebratory space and I just like her melodies; her song structures are brilliant."
"Who knows," he adds, "if the scar heals a little bit more, I might go back and try again."

'Tiger's Curse' To Stalk The Silver Screen
Hollywood's love affair with YA fiction is no secret, so when it comes to the latest big-news option of a beloved teen book, we're just surprised this one took so long: Hollywood Reporter has word today that Ineffable Pictures has officially snagged the rights to Colleen Houck's "Tiger's Curse," the first of a literary series that might just be our next big obsession in supernatural interspecies romance. (Assuming that sexy shifter Sam Merlotte doesn't get his own "True Blood" spin-off, of course.)
"Tiger's Curse" is the story of 17 year-old orphan Kelsey Hayes, who begins working at a traveling circus only to discover that the performing white tiger is actually (all together now!) a prince in disguise. Specifically, a heart-meltingly hot Indian prince who can only take human form for a paltry 20-ish minutes per day. But while this might sound like standard fairy-tale fare, don't be looking for a quick, beauty-and-the-beast resolution to this shapeshifting conundrum: The first book saw Kelsey jetting off to India on a quest to lift her beloved's curse, and with only two of the projected five "Tiger" books yet released, this story could still go anywhere.
The studio aims to start production on the first film by 2013, but it's never too early to start keeping an eye out for any fun speculation or hinty hints about who might be playing the lead roles, particularly that of the Indian prince. Could megahotties Sendhil Ramamurthy or Hrithik Roshan be contenders for the leading cat... er, man? Or will the role be a career-making break for some as-yet-unknown actor?
but what is ineffable pictures?

another FLAWLESS episode tonight
When The Hollywood Reporter spoke to the actors recently about Season 2, we also learned that they have something else in common. Their senses of humors are pretty much no holds barred.
“Nothing offends me, like nothing,” Coupe says. “I watch other people say, ‘Oh my God, I can’t believe he just said that.’ And I’m like, ‘No, give me more. Why didn’t he say more?’ ”
“Sometimes I’ll just say, ‘Oh man, that’s messed up,’ just so I can try and pretend,” Wayans adds.
The two then get into talking about deli meat on their faces -- you just have to watch THR’s hilarious interview.
Mods, can we get a Happy Endings tag?
Fox has bought the rights to produce a TV adaptation of author Lev Grossman's fantasy novel "The Magicians", with "X-Men: First Class" and "Thor" scribes Ashley Miller and Zack Stentz attached to pen the script. The adaptation has been given a script commitment and will take the form of a one-hour drama.
Miller and Stentz had been collaborating on the project with producers Michael London ("Milk"), Shawn Levy ("Real Steel") and Michael Adelstein prior to the sale, according to Deadline, which broke the story. The scribes have previously written for shows including "Fringe" and "Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles".
"The Magicians" was published in 2009 and subsequently became a New York Times bestseller. The novel follows a group of young adults studying magic in New York City who discover that a fantastical land known as Fillory is actually a real place. The book has been described by some sources as "'Harry Potter' for adults".
Grossman wrote a follow-up entitled "The Magician King", which was published just last month.
I am so lucky that I have been able to create art and music and fulfill my passions through my job for the past 11 years. But I'm stupid enough to have put all my eggs in one basket. It is now the only thing I can do to make money. I'm 33 years old and I can't make coffee. I don't know how to use Excel, or bartend, or wait tables, and I'm officially too old to join the police force. I've lost the confidence to go back to school and feel stressed out about impending debt when I think about further education for even one second.
I have several jobs within the music industry as of now: bands, DJing, remixing and even writing music for other artists. I'm a workaholic and have my hands in a bunch of different places. But, all these jobs have unstable incomes. I don't get a salary; I don't know how much money I will make next month, next year or five years from now. I don't have health insurance. And I live with the stress of not knowing, not planning and not understanding whether or not I will ever be able to reach my goals of having a family and feeling safe financially. When I say "safe," I mean safe. I mean basics. I mean health insurance that is good enough for me to take care of myself, not just if I need a $10,000-dollar, life threatening procedure. I mean dental care. I mean saving money in a retirement fund so that I can take care of myself when I'm 80 years old. Clearly, there is a difference between survival and luxury.
Like so many teenagers, I believed in the "American Dream," that I could move to New York from the Midwest and become an artist. I would achieve both fame and success, and I would never have to think about money. The first half was true. I made art and lived activism, and I achieved amazing amounts of success that I feel incredibly proud of. The second half, not so much. I have been able to live well, eat well, invest in my arts and make my own schedule, but I forgot to save money and think about my future.

From Selena Gomez to Taylor Swift, Nicki Minaj‘s hit single, “Super Bass” might reign as the ultimate song to cover among some of today’s top female singers.
But the latest songstress to conquer the rap tune isn’t anyone famous…well, not just yet at least.
Sophia Lee Brownlee‘s rendition is already becoming a YouTube sensation. Recorded on a cell phone at the young girl’s UK home, the little girl has Nicki’s swag, accent and dance moves down to a tee, while also donning a pink princess costume (complete with a crown) alongside her younger sister.
Too cute! Click and watch the video above!
This is probably the best Super Bass cover of ALL TIME. Omg. I love this kid.
When superhero comedy Kick-Ass was released last year I don’t think anybody thought it would spawn (or at least be the first of a movement) it’s own sub-genre of movies. But spawn it has with Defendor, Super, the upcoming Griff the Invisible, even TV show Castle offering their own take on the ordinary joe pulls on a costume story. Now stepping up to the plate is independent movie VS.
Reported by Aint It Cool News, the film is written, directed and produced by relative newcomer Jason Trost. Described as ‘Kick-Ass meets Saw’, the movie centers around four young super-heroes, including Trost and Lucas Till (Havok in X-Men: First Class, also serving as co-producer) who are forced into a series of deadly challenges by their arch-nemesis Rickshaw, played by James Remar (best known for his role as Harry Morgan in Dexter).
