Maxim releases their Hot 100. Most are garden variety bimbos but there's a few points of film/tv interest in their list: #1 Lindsay Lohan (woot. I try not to love her. But I fail) #3. ScarJo #12. Angelina #29 Sarah Silverman (basically the only sign of non T&A based lust in their list) # 30. Rebecca Romijn #44. Rose McGowan # 46. Kristen Bell #55. Halle Berry (the only geriatric on the list --ewwww she's 40!... [/sarcasm] ...well, she's ancient for Maxim at least) #57. Tricia Helfer ("Six"!), # 58. Penelope Cruz # 64. Lena Headey (apparently starring as the audience beard in retarded action flicks about hot throbbing man muscles is good for your f***ability) #67. Gabrielle Union #80. Abbie Cornish #90. Salma Hayek and #91. Isla Fisher

and finally... I've talked enough about my own feelings about mixing religion and government (unhappiness, war, and misery for everyone. There'll be enough to go around!) but here are my two favorite articles on the death of Jerry Falwell, a human being --and therefore someone who is being mourned by some-- but not a very good one. Here's Gay Prof and fourfour with measured, funny, honest and insightful reactions.

The trailer to 'My Blueberry Nights' isn't really a trailer. I think it was a promo, but nonetheless I loved it. Norah Jones' performance looked soulful, and I can't hardly wait to see the film. I hope it's another one of Wong Kar Wai's beautiful creations.

Apparently the Madonna song, "Hey You", is complete and utter dirge. Like, not even worthy of a being a b-side to an unreleased concept album bad.

Shouldn't surprise considering she worked with Pharell apparently.

It is sort of rubbish, but there's some parts that I really quite like. "Hey you! Save yourself! Don't rely on anyone else!" particularly makes me wanna heave.

Sounds like it would have been a b side to her Like a Prayer album or something.
