The Many Upcoming Movies Of Emma Stone

It’s still funny to me that Emma Stone could have been cheerleader Claire Bennet on “Heroes.” The part just wouldn’t have shown off her comedic chops. In fact, I think losing that part was the best thing that ever happened to her. Instead, Emma went the “Superbad” to “House Bunny” to “Easy A” route and is now poised to be one of the biggest stars of our generation. Sealing the deal? An offer has just been extended to her to play Elizabeth Bennet in the highly anticipated classic/zombie mash-up, “Pride, Prejudice and Zombies,” based on the best-selling book. Most predicted that the role would go either to heavy-hitters Natalie Portman or Scarlett Johansson. But we think Emma will be just perfect.

After the jump, more high-profile movies we will soon be seeing Emma in. Keep reading »

The 24,000 emails that Sarah Palin sent and received while she was governor of Alaska didn’t turn out to be filled with salacious and incriminating tidbits, like many reporters had hoped. But as editor Michael Solomon discovered, they were full of beautiful verse. And thus, Michael has put together a collection of 50 Palin poems in the volume Hope Like Heck: The Selected Poems of Sarah Palin.

After the jump, two lovely selections. Keep reading »

Sad Keanu: The Book

Kleenex ready? Because it sure looks like Sad Keanu has inspired a book. In April, Keanu Reeves released the book, Ode To Happiness, along with artist Alexandra Grant. Made up of grayscale images and lettering that looks it might have been smeared by tears, each page contains an uplifting thought like, “I draw a hot sorrow bath. In my despair room.” The words on the final page of the tome? “It can always be worse.”

So what’s with Keanu’s glumness? Keep reading »

Frame Your Favorite Book

Some books mean so much to us — and have such pretty covers — that we want to draw more attention to them beyond just lining them up on a book shelf. This clever book picture frame as both a way to store your favorite tomes and display them as wall art. And wouldn’t the easy access come in handy the next time you have a desperate need to quote, say, Atticus Finch’s advice to Scout in To Kill A Mockingbird or read a sex scene out loud from Jackie Collins’ Lucky? Okay, maybe that last one is just something we would do — during a dinner party, for example — but you get the point. What books would you frame?
