I saw "Greetings from Tim Buckley" at the Toronto film festival last week. Penn does a great job imitating Jeff's singing style, which isn't easy.

The film is good, but not as emotionally engaging as I'd hoped. Still, I think it will help launch his post GG career.

7:05/8:33: That's actually one of the models for the next brain-eating aliens movie coming up. I think it's the 17th Alien movie or something.

But I know scarves are constantly whiny and upset. And who could blame 'em!? With lattes and meaningless graphic arts jobs along with that "lifestyle" of theirs. Ouch!

Someone explain to me why people think Drake is a good rapper? Have the standards of the average hiphop fan been lowered?
