Poll: New Bond Girl?



The new James Bond movie kicked off its production with a brand new lead, actor Daniel Craig, but it hasn’t yet cast a leading lady. Who do you think should shake 007’s, er, martini?

This Day Last Year


On February 1st 2005:

Usher told Elle Magazine he wouldn’t mind having public sex. Skinny white Elle staff writer misconstrued comment for sexual assault. 

Kate Bosworth and Orlando Bloom call it quits. 15 year-old Katie Smart from Kansas City and her home made voodoo doll was to blame.   

Alec Baldwin rushed to the aid of a woman who fainted in a Broadway theater. He reportedly picked her up and carried her outside for some fresh air. She was never heard from again.

LISTEN UP: Your Daily Dose of the Best Music Ever



Despite having one of the worst band names since Deep Blue Something, this year’s Arcade Fire Award for Blog-Created Musical Superstars is definitely going to four UK indie rockers who call themselves Arctic Monkeys

After being breathlessly blogged about everywhere from Stereogum to some dude’s MySpace page, the Monkeys meteoric rise to the top of the British charts managed to give them the fastest-selling debut record from any U.K. act, ever.  Take a listen for yourself, and see if they live up to the hype (or ‘type’, as it were):

What does the Super Bowl represent to Chuck Klosterman, a random writer you have never met and (in all likelihood) have never even heard of? That is the quandary that has America talking. And that is the quandary I will attempt to answer through this sporadically updated weblog, a process Arctic Monkeys fans like to call "blogging."

Chuck is blogging about the Superbowl from Detroit all week long. Even if you don’t care about who wins the big game– or who’s playing in the big game– this is a must read. If nothing else, I guarantee that this is the only Superbowl Blog you’re going to find that references Soundgarden, Tawny Kitaen and Robert Altman. Read it all here.

For Sale: Charlotte’s Vagina



The Sex and the City original painting "Charlotte’s Vagina" is up for auction on eBay. As I’m writing this, the reserve has yet to be met, and the top bid is only $305. In case you were wondering, it’s 54 inches by 96 inches. The painting. Not the vagina.

So there you have it. If you want, you can buy Charlotte’s vagina on eBay. Meanwhile, Samantha just keeps giving hers away. Oh no I din’t! I went there!
