We're hitting the northside Martini establishments. Here's where we're headed:
Could be a late one! Thank goodness for cabs!
Andre Gainey found out the hard way that in the state of New York it's illegal to drive while watching porn.
Police said the 35-year old man from Clifton Park, New York, was watching a adult movie called "Chocolate Foam" on Tuesday night while driving his Mercedes Benz in the town of Schenectady when he was spotted by an officer at a stop light.
Police spokesman Pete Frizoni said detectives pulled Gainey over when they saw the movie playing on screens embedded in the car's headrests. When they confronted him, they saw another screen in the passenger-side visor was facing Gainey, allowing him to watch the movie while driving.
The case is thought to be the first of its kind in New York, said Joe Pichi, a spokesman for the for the state's Department of Motor Vehicles.
"Our biggest problem is illegal cell phone use while driving," Pichi said. "Drivers should be driving."
The movie was very odd. That's not to say that I didn't like it, because I did. It's just not a movie for everyone. The acting was superb. If Murray wins an Oscar, it certainly wouldn't be undeserved (although I think Penn has it in the bag). Coppolla is a very artistic and surreal director, but I don't think she pushes herself too far. You can see aspects similarities in both "The Virgin Suicides" and "Lost in Translation." What I do like though is that the movie is not bound to dialogue--much of the movie has no dialogue or long dramatic pauses, but you can gather so much from the looks on the two actors' faces.

Are they serious?
An Ohio woman has given birth to sextuplets - all born within 60 seconds.
I guess if you're gonna have that many, the quicker the better!

Police charged the men, all aged in their 20s, with willful damage after they found the testicles in their car.
Were they jealous of the bull's size?
The part of Judas in "Jesus Christ Superstar" was originated on Broadway in 1971 by Ben Vereen, but Anderson stepped into the role when Vereen fell ill, and the two performers later took turns playing the role.
I thought Anderson was just phenomenal in the movie. Many people objected to the way in which Judas was portrayed in the show (more as a victim). However, whether you agree with that decision or not (not trying to get in a major religious debate here), he nailed the part. You really began to feel his angst and torment by the end.

Call me naive, but I believe a real man can lead and keep his pants zipped.

I walked in--very cute stuff. I went to the first rack and picked up a jacket I just loved. $648. Ok. So I just grabbed one of the few things totally out of my range, right?
Without boring you with everything I took off the rack, let's just say that the cheapest thing in the whole place was a $48 candle.
Maybe in about 10 years I can afford a place like that. Sheesh. Maybe my aunt forgot to look at the price tags when she was in there.
My vote is for this one: What the HELL was Bob Mackie smoking?
(Go to the earlier link to see this disaster full-sized).
However, this just pains me. He's really starting to make me nervous.
Repeat offenders of Illinois' drinking and driving laws could soon be given a "scarlet letter" - a brightly colored license plate to point out their criminal history to police and other drivers.
The measure is one of several bills the Legislature will consider that would toughen the state's drunken driving laws. Among other proposals: Reducing the state's blood alcohol limit from 0.08 percent to 0.06 percent, making it the lowest in the country.
Watch out! They are cracking down in IL!
Publicists swore the two were just friends.
Wasn't he the dude in "9 1/2 Weeks?" Wonder how they "met."
I went to bed at 9:30 last night (hadn't done that in YEARS), and when my alarm went off this morning at 6, I felt like I had just gone to bed.
Hope it passes soon...
