End of the Week Reward Keeley Hazell

No comments:



This girl is so hot and her career is just going and going. Check her out at www.keeleyhazell.com

Keeley stormed to victory in 2004 as voters went mad for her sensational 32F-24-36 curves and a new superstar of Page 3 was discovered.

Her dreams of taking the catwalk by storm were put to one side when shortly after her 18th birthday, Page 3 Idol arrived and Keeley's life was turned upside down.

The Bromley babe is now the undoubted superstar of Page 3 and is in constant demand from their army of readers.

As you would imagine, being one of the world's most beautiful women has meant Keeley has been pulled to the four corners of the globe, especially after finishing third in the 2007 FHM Sexiest Woman in the World poll - the highest Brit entry.

Keeley was just pipped by actress Jessica Alba, 26, in second and the winner Transformers actress Megan Fox, 21.

She's recently proved to be so much more than a pretty face, turning her hand to TV and film, appearing in the film Cashback, while early 2008 also saw the release of her first single – Voyeur.

“It would be a great opportunity to try some acting and I'll see where it takes me.” She enthused.

“But my first priority is still my modelling work in The Sun. My fans have been so very loyal to me and I won't forget that.”

NIN Nine Inch Nails 2009 Tour info and Beside You In Time Extended Trailer

No comments:
Not sure why I'm on such a NIN kick today but I love them. In this day and age of cookie cutter acts and groups that have become what they hated when they started **cough**pearl jam**cough**. Trent has never compromised his beliefs or values and always thought of his fans first. From leaving the major labels to giving away his music. For Trent it's the music and enjoyment he gets from that still comes first. And for that I thank you T.

From www.nin.com

A note from Trent and a wave goodbye

Towards the beginning of my career in Nine Inch Nails, our biggest break came in the form of an invitation to perform a series of shows with Jane's Addiction. These performances essentially created and defined the term "alternative" rock in the US, created an ongoing festival franchise that is still thriving (Lollapalooza), set the stage for Nirvana to shift popular taste a few months later, and were really fucking FUN to play and attend - truly the best times I've had. The shows were epic. So epic, they propelled NIN to the "next level" (whatever that means), but caused Jane's to implode. The band broke up at the end of that tour.

Fast forward to the present. Corporate rock STILL sucks. A friend tells me they saw the original Jane's lineup play a tiny show in LA that was unbelievable. I break out my Jane's records and am amazed by how vital they sound. These guys were the real deal and in this current climate mostly dominated by poseurs and pussies it was refreshing to hear something that sounded dangerous, volatile, beautiful and SINCERE.
Emails were sent, phone calls were made, dinner was arranged, ideas were discussed and the next thing I know we're in the studio experimenting. We laugh, we get to know each other, we cry, we yell, we almost quit, we record LOTS of guitar solos, we discuss, we actually begin to all communicate, we yell some more, we become FRIENDS, we laugh again and we do some great things. I get to see first hand why they broke up all those years ago but I also get the chance to see four distinct personalities that become an INCREDIBLE band when they're in the same room.

In NIN world, 2009 marks the 20th anniversary of our first releases. I've been thinking for some time now it's time to make NIN disappear for a while. Last year's "Lights in the Sky" tour was something I'm quite proud of and seems like the culmination of what I could pull off in terms of an elaborate production. It was also quite difficult to pull off technically and physically night after night and left us all a bit dazed. After some thought, we decided to book a last run of shows across the globe this year. The approach to these shows is quite different from last year - much more raw, spontaneous and less scripted. Fun for us and a different way for you to see us and wave goodbye. I reached out to Jane's to see if they'd want to join us across the US and we all felt it could be a great thing. Will it work? Will it resonate in the marketplace? Who knows. Are there big record label marketing dollars to convince you to attend? Nope.
Does it feel right to us and does it seem like it will be fun for us and you? Yes it does.
Look for tour dates soon and I hope to see you out there.

Trent

BMW Art Cars & LACMA Roundup

No comments:




Stopped by the LACMA for a pleasant surprise to see some old-school custom car collaborations between BMW and some familiar names. What’s that saying… “so old, it’s new?” The Roy Lichtenstein, Robert Rauschenberg, Frank Stella, and Andy Warhol painted BMW Art Cars, a series starting in the 70’s, will be on display in the BP Grand Entrance and can be seen free of admission. A little late notice on our part though, as today is the final day of the exhibition. If you do happen make it out there, also check out the collection of Koons they have on display that look similar to the set that was part of the controversial Versailles exhibition that ended recently.

Pushead’s Skull Captain and Skull Pirates Pictures

Wow. Just spied these while clicking around on Artoyz’ Flickr. Characters by Pushead (fansite). Production by Secret Base. Coolness factor: exponential.

Alex Pardee’s Walrus Rider Vinyl Toy: First Colorway Pictures

No comments:



We’ve been eagerly awaiting a picture of the finalized Alex Pardee Walrus Rider since Upper Playground released the first proto shots. Stores are starting to drop photos to gauge interest in the piece. I don’t like pink and I don’t like teal, but I LOVE this figure. This will be one of a couple colorways, so if the hues don’t suit you, wait it out. The 11-inch figure sports “detailed gradient blends” and features a broken tooth that re-locks onto the walrus’ tooth and a C.H.U.D. rider with bendy arms. He comes packaged in a window box for $75. This is an edition of 500 with an anticipated release date of mid-April. Special surprises are also rumored to be forthcoming…
