First Look: David Fincher’s “The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo”

I must admit, I’ve been skeptical about the forthcoming American movie version of “The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo.” I sucked down Stieg Larsson’s series last summer and thought the Swedish films did a fabulous job translating the books to screen — so what’s the point of another director and cast redoing what has already been done so well? But I might be changing my tune after seeing this just-leaked red band trailer for David Fincher’s American adaptation, starring Daniel Craig and Rooney Mara. It looks awesome. I especially love the music — Karen O covering Led Zeppelin’s “Immigrant Song.” Hot. Are you psyched for the film or do you think an American version is unnecessary? (FYI, this red band trailer is NSFW.) Keep reading »

Brad Pitt And Angelina Jolie Demand Time To Bone

“There are no secrets at our house. We tell the kids, ‘Mom and Dad are going off to kiss.’ They go, ‘Eww, gross!’ But we demand it.”

Brad Pitt on how he and partner Angelina Jolie sneak away from their army of kids in order to get some alone time. I love that “kiss” really means “animalistic sex session” (that’s how Star once described the couple’s sex life, BTW). [USA Today] Keep reading »

For The Week Of May 30-June 5, 2011

Virgo (August 23 – September 22)

You won’t care to be tied down by too much right now, so get ready with excuses because you will want to dole them out by the dozen this week. The less you make your unavailability a grand announcement, the bigger your freedom will be. So plan in advance!

Libra (September 23 – October 22)

Don’t hold back and get too controlling about anything right now, as it’s spontaneity and being open-minded that’ll brighten your life now. Yes, slated on your astral agenda this week are romantic scenarios that put you back into the spotlight of your own life. Miracles will appear out of nowhere and love blooms alive. Just one word of caution, don’t ignore reality completely.

Scorpio (October 23 – November 21)

Just when you think you’re about to have your cake and eat it too, something mysterious and powerful will strike at the heart of the matter and turn up the volume in a big way. Forget what you think you want, because the menu is about to change up — but don’t worry, it’ll expand in a bigger way, with better items to choose from. Yes, better than even you think you have it now.

Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21)

You’ll have a whole new reason to want to take a bigger step into your commitments now, as understanding and passion will reign supreme and you’ll want to hold that source of inspiration tighter. Of course, nothing is without its foibles, so for you, that’ll mean needing to ignore the comments from the peanut gallery, as some people just don’t know how to be happy for others.

Capricorn (December 22 – January 19)

Communications are going to get crazier than ever, as fast decision are made, changing what you know and making you feel as if there isn’t anything to ground you. However, it’s only temporary and it won’t be so dramatic if you just allow these changes to take their course. New routines are just what you need, but something you never would have done on your own.

Aquarius (January 20 – February 18)

Life literally will be doing a 180, as big surprises come into play and have you needing to move faster than ever — but that won’t be a problem, as the opportunity that springs at you now will be so delicious, you won’t be able to stop yourself. So go full force, as this is something you deserve and have most likely been secretly wishing for, for a very long time.

Pisces (February 19 – March 20)

Just because your optimism may drop this week, don’t give up hope that you’ll get some understanding. Family or those closest to you will be able to pull out some serious magic. However, nothing comes without effort, so do share some of your concerns and give some direction of your needs, if only a hint.

Aries (March 21 – April 19)

Answers you’ve been waiting for are going to happen now and be better than you imagined. The only catch though is there are a few humbling strings attached to the situation, but nothing you can’t work around or eventually lose. To detour the drama over these imperfections, think of the long term. When you do, chances are all those little aggravations will likely fade away.

Taurus (April 20 – May 20)

It’s not like you need to live in the lap of luxury, but having the cushiness is undeniable. So, as life opens up in a more pampering way this week, dive in and suck it all up without any boundaries. Now won’t be the time to be prim and proper, because if you do, it might send the wrong message to that someone and damn you to more of this stuff down the line.

Gemini (May 21 – June 20)

Crazy events will start to percolate, throwing your brain into gear to try to rearrange all that you want to fit together. However, know you aren’t totally alone, as there is another that can have a say in it all; when they do, it might blow your mind how much love is out there in this world to have.

Cancer (June 21 – July 22)

Despite all the odds that you think you’re up against, a big psychological breakthrough is coming that will throw you into such a new perspective so powerfully, it will change your trajectory quite suddenly and drastically. New goals, new ideas and new motives will be taking you over soon, so don’t get weighed down by the past for one more day.

Leo (July 23 – August 22)

You’ll hear all sorts of crazy talk now, making you wonder what and whom you can trust. No, not everything will be so black and white, but at the least you’ll have some sort of reaction that’ll make obvious what you inherently feel. So take it for what it’s worth, because at the end of the day, your gut is all that you should answer to.

Do Not Want: Stoner Style

The baja hoodie has long been a wardrobe staple for stoners, surfers and philosophy majors. I was lucky enough to meet a combination surfer/stoner/philosophy major in a creative writing workshop my freshman year of college. He was lauded around campus for his flowing beard, his free verse poetry about going to the zoo and not knowing which side of the bars he was on, and the fact that the only outfit he owned consisted of a baja hoodie and a pair of tattered hemp pants. Even though baja hoodies are widely available at beachside shops for, like, 20 bucks, high-end label Gryphon decided to make its own version and sell it for $400. I don’t know many stoned philosophers with that much extra cash on hand. Keep reading »
