Happy 50th Birthday, Ian MacKaye!

Today is punk icon Ian MacKaye’s 50th birthday, and we got him a present. Just kidding! We bet the founder of punk and hardcore label Dischord Records and founding member of the bands Minor Threat and Fugazi eschews gifts of any kind. So instead, we made him this gallery of other oldster rock musicians and icons who are also in their 50s.

Everybody thinks that cannibals just eat human meat straight up. But not so in the case of Brazilian cannibal trio Jorge Beltrao Negromontem, Elizabeth Pires da Silveira, and Bruna da Silva, who put their cannibal culinary skills to the test by turning their human sacrifices into pastries. The three, who were arrested last week in the Brazilian town of Guaranhuns, allegedly attracted their victims by offering them well-paying babysitting jobs. They then murdered their three victims after “a spirit warned them they were bad people.”

The whole cannibalism thing was apparently a way for the trio to “purify their souls.” Buuuuuuuut they may have also used their victims’ bodies to make some extra money by using their “meat” to make empanadas that they sold around their neighborhood. Gross and horrific. [Telegraph UK]

Last night Leelee Sobieski (who is, like, Helen Hunt Jr.) attended the premiere of her new TV show “NYC 22″ at the The Paley Center For Medi. In it, Sobieski plays a rookie cop and Iraq war veteran battling it out on the streets of New York. But here, she looks all statuesque and stuff, in this gorgeous cream and navy gown with scalloped pattern and unique tie-dye effect. Love it. What do you think?
