Subject:Grace Jones on wikipedia
Time:3:34 pm.

"In February 1996, the Jamaica-born beauty was married to a bodyguard named Atila Altaunbay, who is 12 years her junior...As of 18 August 2006, she is engaged to Ivor Mervyn Vigors Guest, the 4th Viscount Wimborne, who is 20 years her junior."

"In April 2005, she was escorted off a train by British police after a row with a female ticket inspector."

"In 1981 Grace Jones slapped chat show host Russell Harty across the face live on air after he turned to interview other guests." (see it here.)

"She next landed the role of May Day, in the 1985 James Bond movie A View to a Kill. Jones was regarded by some critics as the best thing about the otherwise-panned film (particularly when May Day surprised Bond by flipping him over in bed during a "love" sequence, insisting on taking the top role.)"

"In September of 1998, Jones was banned from all Disney properties worldwide after baring her breasts at a concert at Walt Disney World."

Yesss yessss she DID! She's dark-sided TOO!!!

Subject:Paris part 1
Time:6:23 pm.
I've decided the best way to organize the many pictures I took in Paris is to make multiple entries in chronological order. Blame photobucket for the odd and sometimes small sizing. Here are the first bunch.

Subject:metro poop
Time:2:10 pm.
For all of its widely regarded beauty, Paris has a good few disgusting aspects as well. For example, public bathrooms are typically nowhere to be found, and those that are require payment to be used. The result of this is that when people need to use the bathroom they usually do it in public. While this might work above ground, it does not work where the metro is concerned, because the smell has nowhere to go. The result is the widespread stench of urine and feces at many of the stations and trains.
This reached its pinnacle for me today when, after class, I stepped on a train to find the most disgusting smell I've yet encountered, having used the metro for an entire month. As I walked to the other end of the car assuming whatever this was must be somewhere near the entrance, I nearly stepped on a huge pile of human waste. I can't even be sure if it was poop, but it consisted a very thick, brown liquid with a solid lump in the middle, and had been tracked and spread all over that end of the train. I was fortunate enough to have stepped onto some of these tracks, wearing sandals, which definitely won't be worn again until I get home tomorrow and they are thoroughly disinfected.
What made this even worse is that I had just eaten a cheese sandwhich, venti iced latte, and chocolate banana muffin at Starbucks since I missed my last two meals. In conclusion, I doubt I'll be eating again before midnight and am glad to be finished using the Paris metro for another year.

Subject:true story
Time:4:00 pm.
I started reading this a couple of days ago, and it's so good!

I almost died when I found out that Marie Antoinette actually had a pug named Mops. And you know that comment Louis XV makes in the trailer, "How is her bosom?". He actually said that! Here I thought Sofia Coppola was making all of this wonderful stuff up.

Time:7:04 pm.

Goldfrapp's Supernature album has been out for something like 6 months now, and it's already one of my most-listened-to albums of all time. So now I've made use of the best live tracks and remixes of Supernature songs to organize an alternative playlist for the album. Goldfrapp really must be commended for their use of the very best remixers. To call these songs "remixes" isn't really fair because they're more like completely new interpretations of the songs, and I adore them.

<td>1. Ooh La La 2. Lovely 2 C U 3. Ride a White Horse (live at Designerama) 4. U Never Know (Mum Remix) 5. Let It Take You 6. Fly Me Away (Jo Whiley's Live Lounge) 7. Slide In 8. Koko 9. Satin Chic (Hot Lips Remix) 10. Time Out From The World (Fields Remix) 11. Number 1 (Mum Remix) 12. Boys Will Be Boys (Jo Whiley's Live Lounge) </td>

Here's hoping for another single (preferably Satin Chic) with new versions of yet-to-be-remixed album tracks and a hot video.

Subject:Cow & Chicken
Time:7:42 pm.

Does anyone remember Cow & Chicken on Cartoon Network? It was the perfect cartoon comedy, and just thinking about it gets me spitting milk out of my nose. So I decided to make an entry with some examples from the Wikipedia entry as to demonstrate the show's genius. Here we go!

-Cow and Chicken is an American animated television series, created by David Feiss, first broadcast on the Cartoon Network from 1997 to 2001. The series shows the adventures of a cow, conveniently named Cow, and her brother Chicken (who is a chicken), who are often tormented by the Red Guy, a usually naked devil-like character who poses as various characters to scam them.

-Usually the Red Guy's pseudonyms are puns on his naked appearance (i.e. Dr. Hiney Bottoms, Officer Pantsoffski, Baron von Neinlederhosen, Ben Pantced, Mrs. Barederriere).

-The Red Guy very seldom uses his small legs. Most often he will use his buttocks rather than his legs. Other times he will simply roll around like a log.

-The series draws on the clichés of cartoons. For example, Cow has an alter-ego Supercow, who is a superhero with different chararactistics to her normal character (such as flight, and the ability to speak Spanish); and the Red Guy tries in vain to discover Supercow's secret identity even as he torments Cow.

-The children's parents, who are called Mom and Dad, exist only from the waist down, and can be seen to stop at the waist (whenever their shadows appear, they are cut off at the waist). This is an obvious homage to Mammy-Two-Shoes of Tom and Jerry, who was Tom's African-American owner who was only seen from the waist down.

-A single actor, Charlie Adler, voiced all three of the leading parts [Cow, Chicken, The Red Guy]

Since it came in the mail on Monday, I've hardly stopped reading to do anything else. It's fascinating and hilarious. Someone should work a bit of voodoo and revive Nico from the grave so the two of us can kick it.

Nico: "You know they don't wash themselves."
James: "Neither do you."
Nico: "Yes I do. I took a bath that one time in Milan."

Subject:Marianne Faithfull top 20
Time:10:36 pm.
I was bored at work today, so I made a list of my top 25 Marianne songs, 1979-present. All of the Kurt Weill songs are discluded, as is everything else on 20th Century Blues...because any of those songs could easily beat everything here. I judged covers based on their strength as Marianne interpretations, rather than the quality of the originals. Nothing from Dangerous Acquaintances made the list; I don't have it, but am unimpressed by what I've heard and haven't gone out of my way to find it.

1. Why D'ya Do It?
2. Ballad of Lucy Jordan
3. Sliding Through Life On Charm
4. Strange Weather
5. Broken English
6. Working Class Hero
7. Incarceration of a Flower Child
8. Mystery of Love
9. Love, Life, and Money
10. Sex With Strangers
11. Nobody's Fault
12. Witches Song
13. My Friends Have
14. Guilt
15. She's Got A Problem
16. Last Song
17. What's The Hurry?
18. Kissin' Time
19. Penthouse Serenade
20. Times Square
21. Sleep
22. Ashes In My Hand
23. Yesterdays
24. No Child Of Mine
25. Flaming September

Time:9:16 pm.

Nicole Kidman and Russell Crowe will make their much-anticipated film together in the remote Kimberley region of Western Australia, in a set created from scratch by director Baz Luhrmann.

Crowe has revealed the location and timing for the film project, which he says is being planned for later this year.

"I can only tell you certain things . . . but it's very exciting," said Crowe, during a one-on-one chat with S at his home in Woolloomooloo last week. "I look at this thing that Baz has shown me, what he wants to do, and you just have to realise Baz Luhrmann's [genius] . . . he's just not Bazza from the block, mate, he is a 100 per cent, solid gold cinematic artist."

Crowe described the first time he read the draft script for the as-yet-untitled film, which was co-written by Luhrmann and Stuart Beattie (the Aussie scriptwriter behind Collateral and the sequel to Pirates Of The Caribbean).

"The first draft was a double goose bumps with tears, it was just a magnificent read," Crowe said.

The Oscar winner had initially allowed about 15 minutes for a quick glance through the script, but then cancelled all his meetings for the next few hours and ended up lying on his couch in Woolloomooloo, absorbed by the story.

"It was just a wonderful afternoon. I was just transported off into this place and time and into the lives of these people. So it will be a magnificent thing working with Baz, it'll be wonderful spending that much time in that particular area of Australia."

Crowe confirmed a full-scale set for the epic film will be built in a remote area of the Kimberley region. "It's not the Northern Territory, but it's close. A lot of the movie is set there actually, whether it's shot there is different. We'll be shooting in the Kimberleys. Life's tough, eh!" Crowe said, with a laugh.

He said working on a film with Kidman had long been a personal goal for both of them, which continued beyond the collapse of Eucalyptus last year. "It's just something we've talked about since we were quite young, but it had to be the right thing, you know. In the way life has conspired this is the best possible situation, because Baz is very familiar with getting the best out of Nicole, which she's really excited about because she loves being in the situation of being challenged."

Crowe said the film would be made in the second half of 2006, although Kidman may return to Australia earlier so the two Oscar winners can workshop their scenes.

Subject:helaw boba
Time:12:10 pm.
My favorite place to get bobas, Spicy Kimchi in Diamond Bar, puts these whimsical covers on their drinks. So I decided to scan one. Happy Birthday! (?)

In other news, it's been too long since I listened to some extensive David Bowie...and now I'm definitely back on track. I just added most of the 70s albums to my i-pod, and then some. I finally have Scary Monsters and it's undoubtedly one of the best. I decided I'd rank the 70s albums from my first to least favorite, up to SM. Keep in mind that this is approximate, and in no way am I saying that any of these are better than the others. I've listened to all thoroughly, and this is my personal preference.

1. Diamond Dogs
2. Low
3. Lodger
4. Young Americans
5. Scary Monsters (and Super Creeps) (1980...close enough)
6. "Heroes"
7. The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and The Spiders From Mars
8. Aladdin Sane
9. The Man Who Fell To Earth
10. Hunky Dory

I've also decided that Five Years is my favorite song, though I know it always was.

And finally...happy anniversary mister ;)
