OK, people, lastchance to
Nation with anything even resembling seriousness, as the film comes out in May
2002 -- er, make that in January 2003 (to get a new release
date isn't a big deal -- but to get a new release date that is eightmonthslater than previously scheduled is really
not a good sign!). Lead actress (and co-producer) Christina Ricci probably gives a sensitive,
no-nonsense portrayal of author Elizabeth Wurtzel, but the film probably enters camp classic territory by
having the role of the female psychiatrist who tirelessly helps Wurtzel
in her fight for her sanity, Dr. Sterling, played by none other than
Me Crazy authoress, Anne Heche--! (UPDATE: OK, here's the real
story. Earlier this year, Elizabeth
Wurtzel made some, um, let's begin with thoughtless
and work our way down from there comments about her experience with
the events of September 11, 2001. This set in motion its
own chain of events. Suddenly, Miramax decided that this film would
find a wider audience with so-called "Super Bowl widows" in
January 2003. But according to Ricci, it was to distance the film from
Wurtzel's public relations poison comments. And I thought Heche
was the film's biggest liability? Hah!)
I'm only halfway through Black
Silk, and already I can see how it's better than some of the other
erotica anthology books that have been published in the last decade
or so. As with most things, the secret is a KISS: Keep It Simple,
Stupid! Not to be missed: Eric
Jerome Dickey's story, "Good-Bye," in which a newlywed
visits her former lover to get, er, "closure."
Ok, this book I haven't even read -- yet -- but it's Sidney
Poitier's autobiography. This man has had a life like nootherman'sinAmerica! That alone should make it -- at
the very least -- intriguing.
Music La-La-La La La
La-La La... I just can't get Kylie Minogue's song out of my head. It's disco
-- but it's a good disco, a futuristic disco. A disco without those 1970s green
polyester suits -- and doesn't that alone make it good and better already ;>?
And also check out the CD by the curly-haired boy wonder over there on the end,
Josh Groban. His voice is simply out of this world -- you won't believe your
