a bit of everything

Good evening

Still having some issues with my connection but for the moment at least I can update.

We’ve got a gallery up for the Another Magazine party but we’re still lacking decent sized pics 🙁

Ekyillia also found an old but new set from Natalie attending the opening of FINCA program in Afghanistan. At the moment there are only tiny pics like this…

But when we get some decent sized pics we’ll get a gallery up.

We’ve got a new np.comic up. #54

Jeff Wells mentioned Closer on his site.

I’ve heard a little something about Mike Nichols’ Closer (Columbia, 12.3), an eagerly awaited adaptation of Patrick Marber’s wonderfully written play about four romantically-linked Londoners in their 30s (Jude Law, Julia Roberts, Nathalie Portman, Cilve Owen). I personally can’t wait to see the Nichols film (Marber’s play reads like pure silk and seems to drill right into the heart of why lovers put each other through such hell), but it’s been seen and plays “a little cold.” I’ve also been told “it was supposed to be shown earlier but they’ve been tweaking it and tweaking it some more.” I didn’t want to hear this. “But the play is fantastic,” I said to the guy who passed this tidbit along. If you really liked the play, he answered, then you’re probably going to like the film.

Here are the results of the politics poll:

Would you want to see a debate about Nat and her political beliefs on the site?

No thanks 36.83% (239 votes)

Absolutely 31.74% (206 votes)

I don’t mind 30.51% (198 votes)

Pretty even results. I guess I’ll set up that editorial sometime this week and those of you who didn’t want it…well…just don’t click.

I can imagine the results of the new poll to be quite divisive as well. Go check it out.

Robin fixed the gap from that awesome Another Mag pic. Really nice job.

Georgia has this disturbing report.

Yesterday I was sitting at home having a quite sunday afternoon. I flicked on MTV and on the TRL show, Darren Hayes (from Savage Garden) was being interviewed at DArling Harbour (Sydney Australia where I am from!!) and he got asked the questions:

Who would you most like to be naked in a spa with?
And he replied….
“Mmmm, I’m not really sure. Probably Natalie Portman, she’s pretty hot!”
And then Kyle, the guy interviewing him said…
“Yeah, that wouldn’t be bad at all!”

If any Darren is gonna be naked in a spa with her it’s gonna be me dammit!

Jmini sent in 3 non watermarked pics from the US Open.

As well as a great wallpaper.

And finally, here are the 3 entry pics for the next photoshop contest.
