Yesterday we all learned the news that former model and tv star Anna Nicole Smith passed away at the age of 39. It is a great loss to Hollywood. Smith was found dead in her Florida hotel room and was rushed to the hospital where she was pronounced dead. Smith was in the news a lot recently after her son passed away and the birth of her daughter. She will be missed.

2007 seems to be the year of reunions. So far we've heard plans of Rage Against the Machine, the Police, Dispatch, the Jesus and Mary Chain and Iggy and the Stooges. Now we can add one more to the list. Van Halen has announced plans to tour this summer with original lead singer David Lee Roth. The band will embark on a 40 date tour some time this summer.

Gwen Stefani relased a statement the other day that said this will be her last tour before she will head back into the studio with her band No Doubt to record their next album. About damn time! (Source)

Justin Timberlake pleased New York City earlier in the week by adding a special song to his current set list. SNL star Andy Samberg joined JT onstage to do their rendition of "Dick in A Box."

  • Is apple taking over the world?
  • Could be a bad day for ipods in New York City.
  • SXSW announce artist line-up.

Last night I went and saw Factory Girl. It was ok, not terrible but not great either. The actor playing Andy Warhol did a fantastic job and the rest of the cast was alright. Hayden Christensen as Bob Dylan though might have been one of the worst casting jobs I've seen in a long time. Tonight I'm heading down to the Knitting Factory with some friends to see a friend of a friend perform.

Keep it scene in the city!
