Breaking news in the world of literature:
British supermodel Kate Moss, at the center of a scandal last year after being filmed apparently snorting cocaine, has agreed to publish her autobiography. Will Whitehorn, a right-hand man of Virgin Group founder Richard Branson, said Moss had agreed the terms of a deal with Branson, although there was no indication of when the book would appear on the shelves.
That coke scandal could turn out being the best thing that ever happened to her. Are you paying attention, young models?
On this day in 1960, Jean-Claude Camille FranÃ§ois Van Varenberg, AKA Jean-Claude Van Damme, AKA the Muscles from Brussels, was conceived. Also on this day, there was an earthquake in Belgium, and the epicenter was traced to his parents bedroom. (The maximal intensity degree was V, in case you were wondering.) Finally, itâ€™s almost too good to be true, but around this time the song â€œAinâ€™t That a Kick in the Headâ€ was also conceived. Learn more about Van Damme at his incredibly awesome website.
Also conceived today: Chuck Berry (1926), Peter Boyle (1935), Pam Dawber (1951), Wynton Marsalis (1961)

Now that Disney has bought Pixar, the question is: Will Pixar make Disney better, or will Disney bring down Pixar? Itâ€™s encouraging that John A. Lasseter will be taking over, but itâ€™s possible heâ€™ll be stretched too thin. Weâ€™ve all seen it happen: You have a favorite restaurant that is really popular, so the owner opens another one, and they both end up mediocre. By the way, Lasseter is, according to Kevin Koch (the president of the Hollywood animatorâ€™s union), "probably the most respected single person in American animation. He’s a creative leader without being overbearing or over-controlling." Mr. Lasseter, if you need to be overbearing to keep Pixar from Brother Bearing, please do it!
This from CNN: "Sex.com, long coveted as potentially one of the most lucrative sites on the Web because of its catchy name, has been sold for about $12 million in cash and stock, a source familiar with the deal said on Monday."

"It’s time for us to rebuild a New Orleans, the one that should be a chocolate New Orleans. And I don’t care what people are saying in Uptown or wherever they are. This city will be chocolate at the end of the day. This city will be a majority African-American city. It’s the way God wants it to be. You can’t have it no other way."
New Orleans Mayor – C. Ray Nagin
It’s the best quote of 2006– and will probably remain so– which is why there was a need for Imnotchocolate.com. Go there now and pick up your Chocolate City hat, t-shirt and bumper sticker. And don’t worry, the money doesn’t go towards rebuilding New Orleans or anything respectable like that. Hey, you can’t have it no other way.
NBC has canceled the one hour drama, The Book of Daniel, about a pill-popping preist after only four episodes. This means Aidan Quinn, who played Father Daniel Webster on the show, will have to find alternate roles that require ‘research’ on vicodin.
