‘Crossroads’, Too – Cross Harder

So … yesterday was a lazy, lazy day … and it was glorious. David and I spent the entire day indoors … I don’t think we laid eyes on the actual sun at all … all we breathed was air conditioned air … neither one of us touched a shower … it was great. I spent my day writing and playing online. As some of you may know, I’ve recently become obsessed fallen in love with the off Broadway show Sleep No More currently in production in NYC. They announced a string of special Hallowe’en performances for next month and guess what — I’m going out to NYC! Yeah, I’m crazy … I’m only going for 3 days to see 2 Sleep No More performances and then I’m coming back to LA for Hallowe’en weekend. Wee!! More »

Can You Name Real-Life Change Agents?

In Moneyball, Brad Pitt plays Billy Beane, the general manager of the Oakland Athletics baseball team, who didn’t let a little thing like not having enough cash keep him from creating a team on par will well-moneyed franchises. It was Beane’s hyper-focus on an entirely different set of player stats (on-base percentage and slugging percentage) that let him put together a cheaper, albeit still competitive team. And that’s what a change agent does: He changes the game, uprooting pre-conceived notions for a new way of thinking.

Which begs the question: Who are some real-life celebrity change agents?

Mad Men‘s Christina Hendricks, who reminds audiences (and casting directors) that twig-thin women aren’t Hollywood’s only definition of sexy.
Dancing With The Stars‘ Chaz Bono, who’s proving the children of celebrities don’t always have it so easy.
Jennifer Hudson, who turned a family tragedy into an exercise in finding herself, not falling apart.
Sandra Bullock, who’s shown how a messy public divorce can be handled with the strength and finesse of a fearless mom.

Who else do you think should make this list?

Moneyball is in theaters now. After the jump, check out Pink contest winner Nick’s review of the film. More »

More Photos Of The New & Improved Catwoman From ‘The Dark Knight Rises’ Hit The Internets

As you may recall, the first incarnation of the new Catwoman costume left MUCH to be desired … but these new photos show that the costume has been upgraded significantly to make Anne actually look like a cat woman. There is an interesting theory going around that suggests that Catwoman‘s ears/mask combo might be made from Batman‘s own mask/cowl. Check out the photos below and see what you think. More »
