HBIC Cate Blanchett Kills It in Streetcar & Extends Stay With Sydney Theatre

 

There really is no doubt that Cate Blanchett is one of the finest and best actresses of our generation.  There’s no one else you can picture playing Bob Dylan or Queen Elizabeth, and one of my favorite things about her is that she hasn’t abandoned her roots and is still doing theatre.

And still doing it very well, might I add.

Cate just wrapped up her role as Blanche DuBois in “A Streetcar Named Desire”, much to rave reviews, and has also made an announcement that she’s extended her stay as artistic director with her theatre company in Sydney, Australia.  Full stories for both after the jump! Continue reading

Nashville’s Grimeys Top Sellers and Staff Favorites

grimeys1.jpg

Grimeys, located in Nashville, TN, is my home away from home.  My sanctuary.  My synagogue. I go there to be inspired, find unique and brilliant music, and because the atmosphere is so warm and relaxed.  All of the employees are like a treasure book of information about music, and are also extremely friendly.  To put it simply, you go there to listen to good music and see your friends.

With it being the beginning of a new year, the staff, headed by indie-pop princess/manager Anna Lundy, released the store’s top sellers of 2009 and their picks for the best albums, songs and concerts of this past year.  While the list is lacking much diversity (needs more hip-hop and electro-pop), it’s still a brilliant list so please click, click away for all the lists!!!

Pictures of Chace Crawford & Taylor Momsen Filming Gossip Girl

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

It’s been a while since I’ve seen pictures from the set of Gossip Girl, and I’m very happy that this one involves the lovely Taylor Momsen. Personally, I’ve been so disappointed by this season that I had to stop watching.  It was just waaaaay too melodramatic for me.  But I still love Taylor Momsen and think she’s the fiercest girl ever, so you will find more pictures and a video of the Pretty Reckless after the jump.

Also for those of you keeping up, is this season worth getting back into? After Serena’s idiocy, and Rufus and Lily getting married thus making for cheesy family sequences I just couldn’t handle it and quit.  Let me know in the comments!

Megan Fox Spotted on the Set of New Mickey Rourke Film

The gorgeous, flawless, beautiful, adorable etc Megan Fox was spotted coming out of her trailer before filming her new movie “Passion Play” yesterday after a long time of us not seeing her.

In the movie, Megan plays an angel “under the thumb of a ruthless gangster who is saved by a trumpet player down on his luck.”  I have no idea what to make of that plot, but moving along.

More pictures after the cut, and if you didn’t already know Megan really is fantastic in “Jennifer’s Body” so please go rent it.  You’ll be surprised at how awesome and funny it is.

Natalie Portman in Elle Magazine

Natalie Portman is the covergirl for ELLE UK this month and she’s looking gorgeous as usual.  In the article Natalie talks about moving to LA, embracing her inner bohemian and becoming vegan along with more serious topics like why she doesn’t like playing Jewish roles or the “girflriend” in a romantic comedy.

I’ve always loved Natalie and the fact that she’s a feminist at heart who enjoys trees, parks, and all around hippy-ness.  I think we could be best friends.

Pictures and a few quotes after the cut!
