LANA: The Memories, the Myths, the Movies

I just received LANA: The Memories, the Myths, the Movies in the mail today and although I haven't read it yet, I flipped through it and I am more than happy with my purchase. It's filled with beautiful and rarely scene photos of Lana Turner, as well as many personal memories by Cheryl Crane, Lana's daughter and the co-author. It was published at $35.00, but it's been marked down to $11.55 on Amazon.com, which is a GREAT price for such an impressive biography on one of the most gorgeous ladies ever to grace the silver screen.

R.I.P. John Hughes

I grew up on his movies. This is very sad news. :(


John Hughes -- Filmmaker Behind '80s Classics Like 'Pretty In Pink' & 'Sixteen Candles'-- Has Died

John Hughes, the writer and director whose string of classic '80s comedies essentially defined the genre for decades, has died at the age of 59.

The cause was a heart attack, which he suffered taking a walk on Thursday morning (August 6) during a trip to New York, according to Variety.

Writing for talent like Chevy Chase and Michael Keaton, Hughes had early hits with "Mr. Mom" and the first of the National Lampoon "Vacation" movies. His 1984 directorial debut, "Sixteen Candles," and his follow-up the next year, "The Breakfast Club," were instrumental in launching the pop-culture phenomenon known as the Brat Pack. Actors like Molly Ringwald, Judd Nelson, Ally Sheedy, Emilio Estevez and Anthony Michael Hall became some of the biggest names in Hollywood thanks to Hughes' brand of youth-oriented entertainment.

Pet Psychic Is Eerily Accurate

I really love this story.

from The San Francisco Chronicle:

Pet Tales - Eileen Mitchell

Many people visit psychics with some degree of skepticism. Jill Lopate was no exception when, out of playful curiosity, she took her Chihuahua, Kai, to see a pet psychic. However, the Mendocino resident found herself having second thoughts once the psychic started talking.

I love these miniature style photos and I always wondered how people created them. Well now there's a website that'll help you do just that! And it's so easy too. Just upload your photo and mess around with the online photo editing tools a little, hit preview, and presto! You just tilt-shifted your photo! TiltShiftMaker also lets you download your newly tilt-shifted photos - for free and without any watermarks!

I wish I had more scenic-type photos to do this with. But now I am inspired to take some!

Wherever Hollywood heartthrob Hugh Jackman goes turns into a three-ring circus.

So it seems fitting that the Aussie A-lister has been cast as P.T. Barnum, the great American entrepreneur who made sideshows and circus acts into big-time entertainment and became famous in the process.

Variety reports that the 40-year-old actor will sing and dance his way through the contemporary musical big-screen biopic "The Greatest Showman on Earth."

The screenplay is being written by "Sex and the City" alum Jenny Bicks. British singer-songwriter Mika is reportedly in talks to write music and lyrics.

Barnum's life inspired the 1980 Broadway musical. The upcoming film will cover his career and love life, including his infatuation with singer Jenny Lind - aka the Swedish Nightingale.

The Lind role is being written, Variety notes, for Anne Hathaway, who performed with Jackman in his opening number when he hosted the Oscars.

Jackman, who stars with Daniel Craig next month in the Broadway drama "A Steady Rain," has already proven his powers as a musical star on stage. He won a Tony for the 2003 musical "The Boy from Oz."

Playing Aussie entertainer Peter Allen, Jackman shimmied aggressively atop a piano while sporting snug-fitting gold lame. Expect some different threads - and moves - when he portrays the 19th Century impresario.
