Europa!

Brilliant- but a bit of Bummer!
"The Bush boys have certainly set a standard for the future - lax
regulation, tax breaks for wealthy, an imploding financial sector,
growing disparity of income, loss of jobs, high energy prices,
monumental national debt and growing deficits, a weakened dollar, and
massive government bailouts of private industry with, of course, no
payback to stockholders or to USA of the excessive, obscene payouts
grabbed by former CEOs of the rescued companies and Fannie and Freddie.
What a record for the Harvard B School grad who was going to bring
business principles to government and compassion to conservatism! A
fraud and deception on the country unrivaled since the 19th century. He
even makes Herbert Hoover look like a leader.
What's next?
Wow."

"David Lynch Goes Public With 9/11 Questions
Film director is disturbed by unanswered questions

Film Director and cult icon David Lynch has gone public with concerns he has over the official government story of the September 11 2001 terror attacks. Lynch has stated that he is disturbed by unanswered questions concerning the Pentagon attack, the collapse of the buildings in New York and the strange ending of flight 93 in Pennsylvania.

Appearing on Dutch Television on VPRO's Wereldgasten, on December 3rd, Lynch discussed and played clips from Dylan Avery's groundbreaking 9/11 documentary Loose Change.

After playing a four minute segment from the documentary Lynch stated:

Its not so much what thy say, it's the things that make you look at what you thought you saw in a different light. And Those things for me, that bother me, is the hole in the Pentagon being too small for a plane, the lawn isn't messed up, and the government's not showing the plane hitting when many cameras photographed it.

At the World Trade Center, three buildings came down, like demolitions, and two of them were hit by a plane, but the third one they said "do you want us to pull it?" and they pulled it and it looked just like the other two. Those things bother me.

In Pennsylvania, the plane that went down, there was just a hole in the ground, there wasn't any wreckage,there wasn't any skid marks, there wasn't any tear in the earth, and no one has ever really found out about that.

So every place there's questions, coming from this documentary. You don't have to believe everything in the documentary to still have questions come up... and you look back and you remember what you saw, and what you were told, and now, you have questions.

It's just an event that has many questions and no answers.

When asked "What about suggestions the American government was behind it?", Lynch answered:

"That's too big for people to think about. it's too big. It's like something no one wants to think about."

Lynch has directed well known cinematic classics such as Eraserhead, Dune, The Elephant Man and Mulholland Drive. He was also the creative force behind the Twin Peaks television series in the 80s. His films are synonymous with the questioning of the nature of reality and thinking outside the box. Often employing visually rich and surrealist stylistic elements, Lynch's works have become instantly recognizable to audiences worldwide and cemented his status as an underground hero for many.

Lynch's decision to make public his views is another encouraging sign that 9/11 truth and visualizations such as Loose Change are crossing the boundary between "the alternative" and the mainstream, permeating the collective consciousness of accessible culture, just as Lynch's work has done over the past four decades.

Lynch follows in the footsteps of other identifiable cultural figures who have spoken out on 9/11, such as Richard Linklater, Jesse Ventura, Matthew Bellemy, Ed Asner and Charlie Sheen.

I am often my own best model~ I'm all I've got! Case in point: Monday, we rode
back from Maryland with RobZ in his pick up. We hit traffic on the Merritt, and I
was antsy, so out came the camera and in a flash I was in full-on photoshoot mode.
At one point I threw in the fake daisies snagged at augustoberfest, and considered
the possibilities ("if only I had a model, real flowers...oh well, still I find the light.")
amused, inspired. And looky here! Wispy Sienna Miller was spotted in London
today rocking the (real) daisy look and working her easy breezy boho chic.

Ok this is definitely funny and not funny. First off, back in Austin in 98-00, KO had
a cat with many names. First she was named Seamus by my mom. Then I called her...
uh...something else*! But finally my friend Frazer named her Crack Kitty, and that stuck.
Crack Kitty was totally crazy! A cracked-out cat to be certain, Crack Kitty literally jumped
off the roof of my parents house and killed herself. It sucked so bad and made me never
want to own a cat again. Miss you Crack Kitty!
OK and then, one of Pete Doherty(with his band BabyShambles)'s best songs is in fact titled Back from the Dead. Haha~ er...sad...

*I blocked it out because C.K. jumped! It was traumatic for me!

We just could not resist: Excerpts from Pete Doherty's talk with London's
Daily Mirror oh so cleverly spliced with drawings KO did in Amsterdam in 1997:

petekate%20and%20frnchgrl%20blueman%20amstrdmbyko.jpg
- "I love her with all my heart. I like the way she walks and talks.
I love her bones. I love her brain."

- "Kate has broken my heart."

- "There's been this lock down and I can't get hold of her. This is
the only way I can get through."

- "I need her to know that she's out of her fucking mind. Kate, if you love me
then realise I don't want any other girl."

- "Do I still love her? Don't ask me that question. Why do you think I'm here today
talking to you? I'm here to tell her that I love her."

- "Fucking hell man, why does she read the Daily Mirror, anyway? She moans
all the time about the fucking paparazzi then first thing in the morning she's
got to buy your paper."

- "It was love at first meet. When I met her she said she'd get a P tattoo, and
I'd get a K. Soon afterwards she said 'I'm not fickle, I'll marry you'.
I fucked that up, didn't I?"
katepete%20amstrdamduo97byko%20oldr%20red.jpg
- "Kate - a nasty old rag. We fell out for the same old reason. She accused me
of fucking this girl who lives around the corner. We were watching a DVD together
and Kate started going 'I could tell by the way you were sitting back there that you've
fucked her'. I said 'You're out of your fucking mind'. I was really up for some peace
and love that morning. I wasn't up for being called a cock and being kicked in the
head."

- "She's got an awful temper. I grabbed a guitar and books and said
'I'm never going to be treated this way again'."

- "I love her with all my heart. I wasn't going to go after a poxy model,
let alone some girl I've known as a friend for years. Kate is both jealous
and suspicious, the same as every woman. But being accused all the time
of going with other women takes its toll. She can sit on our music producer's
knee in the rehearsal room to wind me up. But as soon as I talk to anyone,
it's an affair."

- "Kate is so stubborn. She'll probably sit this one out. Rather than listen to reason
and say 'No, actually you didn't sleep with that girl, that's ridiculous', she decides
to have a big old row."

- "When she finished it in a blazing row I decided never ever ever am I going to
go through that again. I promised myself so many times about it. But I always go back.
It's abusive isn't it? Maybe I'm destined to end up in an abusive relationship, but
I don't want to."

- "I can't properly describe my feelings for Kate they are too strong.
It's why I write songs."

- "She rang last night and left a drunken answer-phone message, singing Moon River.
She's ripped my heart out. I don't know what I'm doing."

- "It's going to take a couple of weeks for me to clean up. It's been dark.
But I've come out of rehab a new man."

- "I'm feeling good and I'm determined I can beat the drugs. If I had Kate back
then life wouldn't be so bad, would it?"

- "The last drugs we did together was the coke in the recording studio
when you filmed us. After that, she went into rehab in Arizona and came out
a different woman."

- "Kate was determined to sort her life out and has done. She doesn't mind
the odd spliff but won't go back down the route of the hard stuff. And she
certainly won't let me do drugs in her house."

- "Drugs are a big no-no for her now. All she wants is to be a good mum to her kid."

- "She was driven and tried to help me out. Her dream was for us to be a normal,
happy couple like any other. I guess my drug problem has destroyed that. You don't
know how much you've lost until it's gone. I've been a bit of a idiot."

- "She could do without the foolhardy junkies around her, doing rash things and
endangering everything she's worked fucking hard to get. So I've got a bit to think
about and need to sort myself out."

- "I wasn't the model boyfriend, was I? I wasn't too popular. Let's just say
some of her friends were particularly Frosty."petekate%20and%20amsterdam97duo%20by%20ko.jpg

bono%20and%20pene%20sttrop.jpgSo Pene and Bono were spotted out and about (again)...today, in St. Tropez.
Perez posted the pic of Puffy aka P Diddy aka just Diddy, etc., today but failed
to highlight the fact that Pene and Bono are the very reason he's rising from his seat.
bono%20and%20pene%20with%20diddy%20sttrop.jpgThe pics from x17 are much clearer~ literally and figuratively!
Has Bono left his wife of 25 years for the young, lispy Penelope Cruz?!
Umm...I'm really just blown away, I am... And yet, for some reason I'm still
just refusing to believe Bono's with Pene romantically. But WTF?!

dirty hot clip of Pete Doherty serenading the camera, himself and oh yeah Kate Moss.

His sound is so rich, but his body reeks of rotted youth and spirit. He's a living ghost!
And honestly, Kate's an ethereal waif giving off a shrill aura in a Carrie-esque setting.
They were probably soaked in blood moments later...Alas, I'm so completely loving it.

Some choice excerpts from Matt Taibbi's article for Rolling Stone:

That Iraq Report? More of the Same
The great Baker-Hamilton crock: A classic bullshit-cloud
in the proud tradition of congressional "studies"

These guys know how to spread their legs for campaign contributors, raid the budget for redundant public works projects and worm their way onto the six o'clock news wearing a hardhat or a Cubs cap -- but the average elected official knows very little about actually solving real political problems, because in most cases that's not what got him elected.

The successful politician today is the one who can best convert the agendas of his campaign contributors into politically saleable policies. That's the business of government today; both the legislative and the executive branch are mainly engaged in searching out and finding the acceptable mean between voter sentiment and financial interest. It's sort of an ongoing math problem -- figuring out how many voters you can afford to fuck every four years, or how much money you should be extracting, and from which sponsors, for each rape of your constituents.

It's important, when you nominate your panel, to dig up the oldest, saggiest, rubberiest, most used-up political whores on the Eastern seaboard to take up your cause. That way, you can be sure that the panel will know its place and not address any extraneous issues in its inquiry -- like, for instance, whose fault a certain war is, or whether the whole idea of a "War on Terrorism" needs to be rethought, or whether the idea of preemptive defense as a general strategy is viable at all, or whether previously unthinkable solutions may now have to be countenanced, or whether there is anyone currently in a position of responsibility who perhaps should immediately be removed from office and hung by his balls. Your panel should contain people who are not experts or interested parties in the relevant field (since experts or interested parties might be tempted to come up with real, i.e. politically dangerous solutions), but it should contain people who are recognizable political celebrities whose names will lend weight to your whole enterprise, although not for any logical reason.
Hence the conclusions of the Baker-Hamilton report were predetermined virtually from the start. We could all have expected that the group's only unequivocal conclusions would restate the obvious -- that we need an eventual withdrawal of troops, that there needs to be more "robust regional diplomacy," that Iraqi forces need to assume more of the security burden, and that there will be no hope of a political solution without some cooperation from Syria and Iran. Duh! Because the really thorny questions are the specifics: when do we leave, and, more importantly, what do we offer Iran and Syria in return for their cooperation, what horrifying inevitable humiliation will we be prepared to suffer at their hands, and what form will talks with those gloating countries take?
We may soon have to face this fact: With the midterm elections over, and George Bush already a lame duck, the Iraq war is no longer an urgent problem to anyone on the Hill who matters. The Democrats are in no hurry to end things because it will benefit them if Iraq is still a mess in '08; just as they did this fall, they'll bitch about the war without explicitly promising to end it at any particular time. George Bush has already run his last campaign and he's not about to voluntarily fuck up his legacy with a premature surrender or a humiliating concession to Syria or Iran. At least publicly, John McCain is going to head into '08 siding with those in the military who believe the problem is a lack of troops.

For the Iraq disaster to end, someone among these actors is going to have to make a difficult decision -- admit defeat, invite a bloody civil war, lose face before a pair of rogue terror-supporting states -- and it's obvious that none of them is ever going to do that, not until there's absolutely no choice.

Baker-Hamilton wasn't about finding solutions to the Iraq problem. It was about finding viable political solutions to the Iraq problem. Since there are none, it punted the problem to the next administration.

Gwyneth Paltrow:

"I love the English lifestyle, it's not as capitalistic as America. People don't talk about work and money, they talk about interesting things at dinner. I like living here because I don't fit into the bad side of American psychology. The British are much more intelligent and civilized than the Americans."
Katy Oliver:
"You may have a point. But that's not the point. You are a snob. You've NEVER had to work an honest day of REAL WORK in your life. A privileged life you have led indeed, Gwynnie (nepotism...next time you are lounging on Valentino's yacht, take a sec to look it up...I think you will find you've done a huge disservice to your lovely Mom and deceased Pop, but that's nothing a quick shopping spree and indulgent day at the spa can't assuage). You've never worried about paying your bills...Your biggest concern back in the day (when you were "relevant"
and people "cared" about you)
was dating "It" boys...and now, your biggest concern is apparently dinner conversation. How nice for you, G.P! Seriously, what a wonderful life yours must be (gratitude...look it up...and while you're at it, look up humility, too).

Bono is at a U2 concert in Ireland when he asks the audience for some
quiet. Then in the silence, he starts to slowly clap his hands.

Holding the audience in total silence, he says into the
microphone..."Every time I clap my hands, a child in Africa dies."

A voice from near the front of the audience pierces the
silence..."Fookin' stop doin' it then!"

As many of you know, KO is currently a dupree at Nik's while he is in Europe.
We are eternally grateful to Nik, and loving our time at his totally fab pad.
Yesterday one of Nik's best friends Word stopped by. He not only enlightened KO
as to how to work the dvd player (yes, we admit Nik showed us, but still we overlooked
that there are in fact two dvd players, one that works supremely and one that we tried
to negotiate with but that does not in truth work even a little) but he also agreed to let me commemorate his visit with a picture. Word is no stranger to my camera, but still
we give him much credit for humoring the always-photo-obsessed Katy Bean.
word%20at%20niks.jpg KO loves this polaroid of Word and BJ with a mutual friend
eating lobster & corn at Chris Rogers' birthday party
in Venice, 9/06.

classic%20polaroid%20shopped.jpg And then there is this photo that KO dug out of the archives while on the East Coast.
Taken Summer Start summer 1995, KO always cherished this picture as a classic.
Indeed, now it is especially magical because 11 years later Chris, Nik & Katy
are not only still friends, but also amazingly all living in Los Angeles! Whodathunkit?!

KO is certain you will find this noteworthy...to say the least:

Congress gives Bush the right to torture and detain people forever
By: Glenn Greenwald @ 5:27 PM - PDT 9.28.06 via C&L (all emph. added by KO)

"Following in the footsteps of the House, the Senate this afternoon approved the bill which vests in the President the power of indefinite, unreviewable detention (even of U.S. citizens) and which also legalizes various torture techniques. It is not hyperbole
to say that this is one of the most tyrannical and dangerous bills to be enacted
in our nation's history.
The final Senate vote was 65-34. The Democrats lacked the votes for a filibuster
and therefore did not attempt one. Twelve (out of 44) Senate Democrats voted
in favor of this bill, while only one Republican (Chafee) voted against it.
The dishonorable list of Democrats voting for the bill: Carper (Del.),
Johnson (S.D.), Landrieu (La.), Lautenberg (N.J.), Lieberman (Conn.),
Menendez (N.J), Nelson (Fla.), Nelson (Neb.), Pryor (Ark.), Rockefeller (W. Va.),
Salazar (Co.), Stabenow (Mich).

One can look at the Democrats' conduct here in one of two ways.
On the one hand, it is true that the Democrats disappeared from the debate until today,
all but hiding behind John McCain in the futile hope that he would remain steadfast in his opposition to the White House. Once the Democrats designated McCain as the Noble and Wise Torture Expert who spoke on their behalf, it became very difficult for them to oppose the "compromise" bill whereby McCain predictably capitulated and gave
the Bush administration virtually everything it wanted
. Democrats painted themselves into this corner by failing forcefully to advocate their own position against torture
and indefinite detention
.
Nonetheless, it is simply a fact that virtually every Republican in the House and
the Senate (with one sole exception in the Senate and only 7 in the House)
voted in favor of this tyrannical bill, while Democrats overwhelmingly opposed it
(in the House, 160 Democrats voted "no," while 34 voted "yes"). With those facts assembled, it is fair to say that the Republicans are the party of torture,
indefinite and unreviewable detention powers, and limitless presidential power,
even over U.S. citizens
on U.S. soil
.
By contrast, Democrats have largely opposed these tyrannical, un-American
and truly dangerous measures. Even if Democrats didn't oppose them as vociferously
as they could have and should have - and that is plainly the case -
this is still a meaningful and, at this point in our country's history,
a critically important contrast." (G.G./C&L)

Because I can't help myself...because we now must...because we love...
We must pay brief tribute to torture...
but don't worry, it's relatively mild...haha...
mostly because it's edited down to a minute...haha...
But hey! This is a clip from Hostel!
It's not real! It stars my friend Derek! It's 100% Americana*...
(*still, KO must warn: NSFW & Not Appropriate for a "weak" stomach!!!)

Jon Stewart nailed it the other night on The Daily Show when he discussed
a leaked report that states the threat of terror to the U.S. has increased since 9/11.
Stewart and new Daily Show correspondant John Oliver are beyond brilliant calling out reporters, Condi Rice, Bush, the Supreme Court & addressing the "vague" outrages on human dignity also known as torture. If you couldn't laugh...

Remember when I posted about the new rules regarding the weight of the models
at fashion week?
Well, today Gawker mentioned Russian model Valentina Zelyaeva's
response to said restrictions:
"I think it's discrimination [to ban underweight models].
We are skinny, this is our work. There are lots of overweight people working in offices
but I'm not going to say "This girl is fat, she can't work in an office."

While Zelyaeva's feelings are informative and offer a near-perfect insight
into the ever-exclusive world of high-fashion models and their high and mighty minds,
a Gawker commenter who goes by the name Leon Freilich offered a sublimely
more savvy spin on the situation and Zelyaeva's response with this poetic expression:

TO MY MODEL MODEL
How do I love thee? Let me count the ways.
I love your cheeks, sharper than blades on sleighs;
Your shoulders, alabaster bones sticking out,
Much paler than Alsatian sauerkraut;
Those welcoming arms--two as I recall--
As thick as one nail sticking out of a wall;
Slim hips like mom and auntie never had,
More like the flanks on an Atlantic shad;
A pair of knees that none will ever match,,
One resembling a knob, the other a latch;
But most of all I love your supple limbs,
A minnow each that narrows when it swims.
Indeed, my love could only be greater if,
My darling, sweetest dear, you were a stiff.
~Leon Freilich

Genius!

Bill Clinton's "depends on what your definition of 'is' is" has nothing on this!

BLITZER: Let's move on and talk a little bit about Iraq.
Because this is a huge, huge issue
, as you know, for the American public,
a lot of concern that perhaps they are on the verge of a civil war -
if not already a civil war - we see these horrible bodies showing up,
tortured, mutilation. The Shia and the Sunni, the Iranians
apparently having a negative role.
Of course, al Qaeda in Iraq is still operating.

BUSH: Yes, you see - you see it on TV,
and that's the power of an enemy that is willing to kill innocent people.
But there's also an unbelievable will and resiliency by the Iraqi people...
Admittedly, it seems like a decade ago. I like to tell people
when the final history is written on Iraq, it will look like just a comma
because there is - my point is, there's a strong will for democracy.

~ GW on "Late Edition with Wolf Blitzer," CNN, 9.24.06
(thanks C&L)

War is but a misplaced comma
in a mediocre political science paper
GW has to hand in before he can take off for the ranch
to party with his buddies...sigh

This may be the funniest f-ing clip ever of the most popular fug on Fox.

Can't. Stop. Laughing. It's. Too. Funny. (thanks C&L)

Be sure to check out this piece from C&L about Clinton "crazed" on Fox!

Also...here is Ned Lamont on The Colbert Report before the CT. election in August.

...And his "Patriot" spot currently airing in CT.

Meanwhile, Cheney had this to say yesterday about Lieberman:
"Senator Lieberman was my opponent in 2000 -- Al Gore's running mate,
a longtime senator, and one of the most loyal and distinguished Democrats of the generation. Joe is also an unapologetic supporter of the global war on terror. He voted
to support military action in Iraq when most other senators in both parties did the same -- and he's had the courage to stick by that vote even when the going gets tough. And now,
for that reason alone, because he supported the President in the global war on terror,
the Dean Democrats have purged Joe Lieberman from the ranks of the Democratic Party in Connecticut.
"

"I don't think [super thin models]'ll ever get banned. I think that as an industry we should promote healthiness. I think that there's a small grey area between being too skinny and sick versus being a thin person. I think if everyone looks to Kate Moss, I mean, she looks great, she's not too thin, she looks healthy."
~Stylist Rachel Zoe via People

Zoe's genius quote comes from a blurb about super-hot model Petra Nemcova
and her eating disorderly past.
Petra spoke up after the decision earlier this month by Madrid Fashion Week officials announcing that models participating in Fashion Week shows there had to meet a weight standard: Their body-mass index needed to be at least 18, or 122 lbs. for someone 5'9".

Petra, who survived the catastrophic tsunami in December 04, told People,
"I went through so many diets in my life. I've been very, very skinny.
I've been a size zero but I'm naturally more curvy...I ate just vegetables, carrots, tomatoes. I went from a just-protein diet to just eating apples to eating no carbs.
I took laxatives. I went through all of it just to be able to model." petra%20straddling%20a%20table.jpg Just a quick question in all seriousness:
Aren't most women "naturally more curvy" than an induced-by-starvation size zero?

*****************************************
Update: In a related story, Cindy Crawford is coming under fire for letting her
look-a-like 5-year-old daughter pose in what some pervs are calling "kiddie porn" poses.
Personally, I applaud Cindy. Her little clone should learn Mommie Crawford's trade quickly and as early on as possible. What else is she going to (want to) do with her life?!
