This Sunday, The Academy Of Motion Arts and Sciences will hold their yearly ceremony and hand out those highly desirable golden statuettes. In anticipation of the event, Artist Neven Udovičić created these nine posters for this year’s Best Picture nominees. The logo designs were limited in color schemes and typefaces. Let us know what you think of his work.
Overnight, the interwebs went into overdrive about a tantalising comment from funk/disco legend Nile Rodgers to the Houston Culture Map about elusive robots Daft Punk: “Those guys are great. They’re coming to my apartment on Monday and we’re going to talk about making a new record together.”
This morning we were able to go straight to the source ahead of the Chic Australian tour and press Nile Rodgers about the Daft Punk comment. The rub? They’re definitely making a record together and Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo and Thomas Bangalter had just left his place…
“We were just jamming at my house, but it’s gonna be proper and real,” Rodgers told us down the line. “They came over to my today around breakfast time and it’s now evening I basically had to almost kick them out. We were having so much fun just in an informal setting that we decided to make it formal. And it’s very formal. It’s gonna be amazing.”
Naturally, we asked the man to go deeper. “It’s funny I’ve known Daft Punk for some time now but we were never really close – we never got a chance to hang out with each other, we would just meet in passing,” he happily continued. “So today was the first chance we had to spend hours and hours together and it was just so awesome. Every track they played I just ran across the room and got my guitar and started playing and we were all dancing around my dining room having the time of our lives. It was something that was meant to be. It was interesting how Thomas said to me: ‘It’s funny Nile, it’s like we’ve completed the circle’. We’ve always just met, just had a moment to talk and then finally today we just said, this is something that has to happen.
“The best projects I’ve ever been involved in have always been like that: we vibe on an artistic level first – same thing happened with me and Bowie. Like Bowie, they can speak in abstract terms and I know exactly what they’re talking about. So it was funny, at one point I said, ‘You’ve been talking for two hours and you haven’t actually said exactly what you’re talking about, but I know what you mean.’ It’s all the nuances of music and who a person is as an artist, concepts, where that concept is now in the arch of life – all of that type of stuff, which is what I really understand.”
As hard as we pushed, getting Rodgers to talk in absolutes was no easy sell – but surely this is enough to make Daft Punk fanatics sing hallelujahs.
Okay, okay. First post. Gulp.
Who watched last night? It was terrifyingly awesome and I loved it! Cannot wait for next week.
Russell Brand Will NOT Take Katy Perry's Money
Russell Brand is entitled to approximately $20 million of Katy Perry's fortune ... but TMZ has learned he will not take a single penny of it.
Russell's lawyer filed final divorce papers Tuesday ... although the judge will make the divorce official on June 30, because there's a 6 month waiting period.
Informed sources tell TMZ ... Russell and Katy did NOT have a prenup. As a result, everything they earned during their 14-month marriage is community property -- which means they're each entitled to 50% of the pot.
Katy made $44 million between May, 2010 and May, 2011 -- according to Forbes. The couple Married in October, 2010, so Russell could have scored a fortune if he exercised his community property rights.
But here's the deal. As one source put it, "This divorce is as amicable as it gets, and Russell was a mensch (Yiddish for a good person)." He doesn't want Katy's money. He's happy to walk away with the money he earned -- which is far less than what Katy raked in.
tbh I'm happy for him he deserves better :)
lololololo this show
NEXT Tuesday is Valentines Day and that means the usual rush of love song compilation albums. But not every love song is what it appears, and some are downright sinister. Here's an alternative Valentine's playlist of the top ten creepiest love songs ever...
EVERY BREATH YOU TAKE - THE POLICE
If your partner suggests this as the first dance song of your upcoming wedding, run. An ode to obsession, this is the ultimate stalker song. 'I think the song is very, very sinister and ugly and people have actually misinterpreted it as being a gentle, little love song,' says Sting, and he should know.
HELLO - LIONEL RICHIE
On the surface, a straightforward love song. But if someone you never met whispered in your ear that 'in my dreams I've kissed your lips a thousand times' you would be just a little uncomfortable. And hello, what about that video? She's a blind student, and he's her teacher, for God's sake.
I WANT YOU - ELVIS COSTELLO
To say that this ballad from the 'Blood and Chocolate' album is intense is an understatement. A jealousy-consumed Costello repeats the 'I Want You' line at least thirty times. Creepy.
SILVER SPRINGS - FLEETWOOD MAC
Singer Stevie Nicks wrote this after her break-up with guitarist Lindsey Buckingham. 'I'll follow you down ' til the sound of my voice will haunt you. You'll never get away from the sound of the woman that loves you,' sings Nicks who probably wasn't handling the break-up too well at the time.
SOMEBODY - DEPECHE MODE
Over a kind of unsettling heartbeat rhythm, Martin Gore tells us all about the caring, listening type of girl he wants, before ruining it all at the end, with the lines: ' Though things like this make me sick/in a case like this I'll get away with it'. Sweet.
ALL MINE - PORTISHEAD
'All mine...you have to be' sings Portishead's Beth Gibbons in this song of desire which takes on a menacing tone in the lines: 'Make no mistake/you shan't escape/tethered and tied/ There's nowhere to hide from me'. Let's assume it's metaphorical.
RUN FOR YOUR LIFE - THE BEATLES
The fab four revealed a darker side in this threatening Lennon-penned track on 1965's 'Rubber Soul'. Lines like 'You better run for your life if you can, little girl' and 'Well I'd rather see you dead, little girl, Than to be with another man' probably ruined their boys-nextdoor image with mums and grans, permanently.
INVISIBLE - CLAY AIKEN
What would you do if you were invisible? We know what Clay Aiken would do. The runner-up in the second series of American Idol has a unique take on the chat-up line. 'If I was invisible/then I could just watch you in your room. If I were invincible/i'd make you mine tonight,' he sings. Does that do it for you, girls? HE HIT ME (IT FELT LIKE A KISS) - THE CRYSTALS Here's a Phil Spector-produced song you rarely hear on the radio, for obvious reasons. We'll let the lyrics speak for themselves: 'If he didn't care for me I could have never made him mad. But he hit me, and I was glad. Yes, he hit me, and it felt like a kiss. He hit me, and I knew I loved him.'
WHERE THE WILD ROSES GROW - NICK CAVE AND THE BAD SEEDS, WITH KYLIE MINOGUE
To sum up: man meets woman, gives her a rose and then bludgeons her to death with a rock. Why? Because 'all beauty must die'. Enough said.

All of our characters come....lol are you sure? I think you forgot Bonnie...
It’s official: House is checking out.
Fox announced late Wednesday that the Hugh Laurie-fronted medical drama will conclude its eight-year run in May.
Below is a joint statement from exec producers David Shore and Katie Jacobs, and Laurie:
After much deliberation, the producers of House M.D. have decided that this season of the show, the 8th, should be the last. By April this year they will have completed 177 episodes, which is about 175 more than anyone expected back in 2004.
The decision to end the show now, or ever, is a painful one, as it risks putting asunder hundreds of close friendships that have developed over the last eight years – but also because the show itself has been a source of great pride to everyone involved.
Since it began, House has aspired to offer a coherent and satisfying world in which everlasting human questions of ethics and emotion, logic and truth, could be examined, played out, and occasionally answered. This sounds like fancy talk, but it really isn’t. House has, in its time, intrigued audiences around the world in vast numbers, and has shown that there is a strong appetite for television drama that relies on more than prettiness or gun play.
But now that time is drawing to a close. The producers have always imagined House as an enigmatic creature; he should never be the last one to leave the party. How much better to disappear before the music stops, while there is still some promise and mystique in the air.
The producers can never sufficiently express their gratitude to the hundreds of dedicated artists and technicians who have given so generously of their energy and talent to make House the show it has been – and perhaps will continue to be for some time, on one cable network or another.
The makers of House would also like to thank Fox Broadcasting and Universal Television for supporting the show with patience, imagination and large quantities of good taste. The Studio-As-Evil-Adversary is one of the many clichés that House has managed to avoid, and for that the cast and crew are deeply grateful.
Lastly, the audience: some have come and some have gone, obviously. This is to be expected in the life of any show. But over the course of the last eight years, the producers of House have felt immensely honored to be the subject of such close attention by an intelligent, discriminating, humane and thoughtful – not to mention numerous – audience. Even the show’s detractors have been flattering in their way. Making the show has felt like a lively and passionate discussion about as many different subjects as could possibly be raised in 177 hours. The devotion and generosity of our viewers has been marvelous to behold.
So, finally, everyone at House will bid farewell to the audience and to each other with more than a few tears, but also with a deep feeling of gratitude for the grand adventure they have been privileged to enjoy for the last eight years. If the show lives on somewhere, with somebody, as a fond memory, then that is a precious feat, of which we will always be proud.
Emily’s go-to IT guy (and begrudging ally), Nolan Ross, is going to step a little further into the spotlight on Revenge. Specifically, his relationship withher father. Gabriel Mann shares some spoilers about his character, Nolan as well as Grandpa Grayson’s impact on the show.
“We have actually shot some flashback stuff with Nolan and David,”Mann says. “I think as we got more information about the fate of the series, we pushed pause on that for a minute because we’ve got sometime to tell this now. We don’t have to tell it all immediately. I think they’re waiting for the moment that it will be most effective in terms of serving the larger story tostart to reveal that information. But I can tell you, absolutely yes, you’re going to find out a lot more about that. That’s going to change a lot of things, too.”
“As everybody does, Grandpa Grayson has his own agenda, too,” Mann says. “Scandal is not something he takes lightly. Some of the information that has been revealed lately does not really jive with his view of Grayson Global. So, he’s got a very pivotal role coming up. I think as Conrad and Victoria’s divorce starts to twist and become darker and more complex, the addition of addinghim into the mix will complicate everything. I think you will start to find out more in terms of the Charlotte backstory and with the David Clarke and Victoria stuff.”
What do you think will be revealed about the Nolan/David relationship? Why did David believe in Nolan enough to invest in his company (a move that definitely paid off)?
lol these titles
Last December, Italian ballerina Mariafrancesca Garritano gave the British paper The Observer enough incendiary quotes about the eating habits at her prestigious ballet company to supply content for all the dailies in England, and in the process, get herself fired this past weekend.
Garritano, who'd just written a book called "The Truth, Please, About Ballet," told the Observer reporter stories of fellow ballerinas who'd been rushed to the hospital to get food injected into their systems. She said she'd been teased with the names "Chinese dumpling" and "Mozzarella" by her instructors when she was a teenager, that she'd lost her period for a year between the ages of 16 to 17 when she dropped to just under 95 pounds, and blamed her current bouts of intestinal pain and bone fractures on the dieting that got her there.
Garritano, now in her mid-30s, gave a count: seven in ten dancers at the La Scala Academy in Milan have had their menstrual cycles stop, one in five have anorexia, and many of her colleagues are now physically unable to have children.
Then, this past Sunday, while very large men on this side of the ocean slammed their shoulders together in the cause of another physically dangerous industry, the news went out that Garritano had been "summarily sacked," as the Guardian put it, by her employers at La Scala. The news was coupled with an anecdote about Garritano once suing the school for a promotion. In an op-ed, Guardian ballet reviewer Judith Mackrell questioned whether the famed theater was as much a Disney villain as it might seem, or if Garritano was once again working out a personal issue:
"[Garritano] is talking about training that took place 15 years ago; while the school accepts there have been past failures, it claims a new culture has been introduced. Other dancers have been quick to condemn her accusations as false; whatever is going on behind the scenes is no doubt more complicated than might at first appear."
Certainly, there's something complicated about the rumored popularity of a body-weakening disorder among dancers commonly likened to athletes. In 2010, when New York Times critic Alastair MacAuley unleashed public fury for his description in a "Nutcracker" review of dancer Jenifer Ringer (who happened to have gone public about her battle with anorexia in the past, unbeknownst to MacAuley) as "the Sugar Plum Fairy [who] looked as if she'd eaten one sugar plum too many," Ringer responded with the verbal equivalent of a smile and a shrug.
"It's one opinion," Ringer told Anne Curry on The Today Show, before explaining that her anorexia had arisen as a "coping mechanism" to deal with being a professional performer at 16, rather than a logistical necessity based on what her bosses required of her. But "Black Swan" was about to come out, and Curry wasn't about to be dissuaded of the tortures of ballet so easily:
AC: So when you see for example, Natalie Portman, in this movie that's going to be coming out, in which she's lost 20 pounds for the role, it sounds as though you're saying that it sort of is representative of the true pressures that there are on dancers to be exceedingly thin.
JR: Well, I haven't seen the movie, to tell you the truth. So I don't really know exactly what it says. But you know, it's a physical profession, we're dancing all day long. So A) a lot of times when you're dancing all day long -- I'm sure Natalie must have trained like crazy -- so there's a natural weight loss just from working sometimes eight hours a day. But you know, if you're too thin really you can't do the job, and I think that's where people run into trouble. That was my problem. When I went through my eating disorders, when I went through some anorexia you know, you're weak, you can't do the job, you can't perform it well.
Ringer, who is 37 and a working mom, was being clear even in the face of Curry's overwhelming sympathy: in her experience, ballet neither required nor rewarded anorexia.
So what to make of Garritano? Is the Italian system more looks conscious than its American counterpart? Or is there something to be said for the fact that Garritano doesn't seem to have children and Ringer does? Garritano's claims of "widespread infertility" made headlines alongside the word "anorexia" when she first said her piece.
They also elicited the most direct rebuttal from La Scala: a spokesman cited nine pregnancies among the company's dancers in the last year a half. He didn't, however, specify how old the dancers who conceived were, leaving Garritano's claims of an unusually barren generation unaddressed. If her perception is correct, that those who trained with her experienced a dramatic loss in fertility, the situation is striking -- a generation of dancers who sacrificed childbirth for their art at an age when they couldn't have understood the consequences. If true, it's no wonder a whistleblower would surface 15 years on, at the age when childbearing has suddenly become relevant to her. And if true, whatever nutritional courses La Scala has since instituted, their wrong can't be righted.
After spending the past 3+ years in a coma due to a tragic car accident, Deftones' bassist Chi Cheng has finally awaken and is showing promising signs of recovery. From responding to doctors to moving his feet up and down, Cheng is on his long road to recovery. Cheng went into a coma after being in a car accident in Santa Clara, California back in 2008.

2 to 1 superman (sorry will you know I love you and you also suck at ping pong)
Who needs a spokesperson when you can a much cuter and furrier spokesdog? Nintendo this morning has named Uggie, the pooch who starred in the Oscar-nominated movie The Artist, as their official spokesdog of the month to promote Responsible Pet Ownership Month (as well as nintendogs + cats).
Isn’t he cute?
Read on for the announcement from Nintendo.
In a move that’s got tails wagging from Hollywood to Manhattan, Nintendo of America is teaming up with Uggie, the talented Jack Russell terrier known to moviegoers as the canine co-star of The Artist. Starting today, Uggie will sink his teeth into a memorable new role as Nintendo’s first-ever “spokesdog,” spreading the word about the interactive fun of nintendogs™ + cats for the Nintendo 3DS™ hand-held system.
To help celebrate February as Responsible Pet Owners Month, Uggie will lend a paw by showing how the game includes valuable tips on how people can maintain happy, healthy relationships with their furry friends in real life. Though he previously announced plans to retire after this year’s awards season, the chance to team up with Nintendo was too doggone good for Uggie to resist.
Uggie is no stranger to the spotlight, having appeared in numerous television commercials and films during the last decade. As Nintendo’s spokesdog, he’ll appear alongside his owner Omar Von Muller to promote nintendogs + cats and the Pearl Pink Nintendo 3DS system, which offers a wide range of wireless features and entertainment experiences that can be enjoyed in 3D without the need for special glasses. In particular, Uggie and his owner will show consumers how nintendogs + cats can not only provide players with an adorable, customizable companion but also teach them skills that can translate to real-world dog or cat ownership. With February as Responsible Pet Owners Month, it’s the perfect time for this partnership.
“Uggie didn’t have to sit up and beg for his role as Nintendo’s spokesdog,” said Scott Moffitt, Nintendo of America’s executive vice president of Sales & Marketing. “It’s truly our pleasure to work with a star of Uggie’s magnitude, especially to help animal lovers and portable gaming fans discover the fun of nintendogs + cats.”
Scott Disick is certainly not acting like a father with another child on the way! Life & Style has learned that after a party-filled trip to Las Vegas, Scott returned home to his furious four-months-pregnant girlfriend, Kourtney Kardashian, only to storm out and leave her alone -- again.
On Jan. 27, Scott was spotted in the VIP section of a Vegas nightclub, drinking cocktails and partying until 3 a.m. A partygoer tells Life & Style that he was back on the Vegas party scene again the next night, when he was overheard talking about "taking a lap" around the club to scope out female revelers.
When he returned back home to Kourtney, she was livid. "Kourtney was fuming," a Kardashian insider tells Life & Style. "She told Scott not to come home. When he finally did, he quickly stormed out again -- and said he was going to NYC." In fact, in January alone, Scott has spent at least 11 days in a different state than Kourtney.
"When Scott wants to get away, he escapes to his own little bachelor pad on the Upper East Side," explains a friend of the Kardashians'. "He's had it forever and doesn't plan to get rid of it. It's definitely not suitable for family living, though -- it's a tiny apartment."
But even when the couple are together under the same roof, "they are not affectionate," reveals a friend of Kourtney's sister Khloé's. "I don't think they've had sex since Kourtney got pregnant -- and that was four months ago!" A second insider confirms their dry spell, telling Life & Style, "Scott says that as soon as Kourtney got pregnant, she stopped having sex with him."
As Kourtney's frustration grows, the protective Kardashians are closing ranks. "They know she's depressed and not happy," continues the second family friend. "You can see she's in a rut." The prospect of raising two kids alone is no doubt terrifying, but Kourtney has made the tough decision to call it quits over Scott's unacceptable behavior before -- in October 2009, when she was seven months pregnant with son Mason.
i refuse to believe that tweet isn't genuine.
The recent news that Namco is considering a Kinect version of Dragon Ball Z has left fans split over the idea, but at least it will be a new game to keep those who love the series happy – well we hope. The franchise is a very popular one and has seen new titles released each year, but this rumored version for the Xbox 360 will be a stand-alone game.
Dragon Ball Z has always had a fast pace, so you will need to keep those movements going at an alarming rate to make those famous attacks, we just hope the Kinect will be able to keep up and do the game justice?
Dragon Ball Z fans split on Kinect idea
News like this is always going to get a mixed reaction and when we hear that some fans believe this game would be better for the Move rather than the Kinect, it does make you think. The idea of controlling your DBZ character with the 360s motion-controller means you would have to move around a lot, which might not work in most people’s homes but Namco should have already thought of this.
There is a general consensus that the Kinect is only good for dancing games and not for fighting ones, but we have seen the device evolving all the time and will only get better with future updates. Not all fans are negative, as there are some who believe this to be a great idea and could prove interesting to play. What do you think of a Kinect version of Dragon Ball Z and how will the system be able to replicate keeping afloat, as you can’t keep going forward to keep yourself in mid-air?
We do hope Namco share some details with us soon, as this article reports that the DBZ Kinect is already in the testing stage and has been for some time. As the game is still in the early stages sharing details now might be a mistake because things will change, so they don’t want to follow Blizzard’s route and share every detail during development of Diablo III, only to disappoint us and take features out.
There is the possibility that this could give Dragon Ball Z the update that it has been screaming out for, as there are some gamers who would have you believe the game series has been in a downward spiral and couldn’t be as bad as some of the most recent versions. While the idea of a Kinect version may sound good to some the true DBZ fans would rather the next version go back to what made the game so great in the first place, something that Resident Evil fans share.
Where do you stand on this, is a Kincet version of Dragon Ball Z a good or bad idea?
I love me some DBZ....but just....NNNOOOOO
Poor Taylor! According to ‘Us Weekly,’ the singer was getting hot and heavy with potential ‘Les Miserables’ co-star Eddie Redmayne, but when she didn’t get the part, he broke up with her! Taylor Swift doesn’t have much luck when it comes to men, does she?
Taylor and British actor Eddie Redmayne met when she auditioned to play Eponine in Les Miserables opposite Eddie’s Marius, Us Weekly reports.
“They hung out in New York City with the movie’s execs,” a source explains. “And Taylor developed feelings for him fast.” - “Taylor loved the image of a British boyfriend,” the insider adds.
