Okay, so at first I was panicking. But the plans for our auction are ticking over just like clockwork. We have a number of artists who are offering their works for sale in the auction.
We've finally hit on the name for the event, it will be called; Artists In Action: Katrina Aid and will begin on eBay on September 30th. Please keep checking back for information.
Well, we've survived, or rather are surviving our first minor catastrophe. Or as I like to call it, the Case of Milady's Computers (see, The Sting) I've managed to find a shovel and though it will take a few months, I see a light at the end of the tunnel. Think good thoughts everyone.
In a rare outing by Jodie Foster Flightplan comes out this weekend. Yay. A movie based on the Tony award-winning play Proof, with a powerhouse cast of Anthony Hopkins, Gwyneth Paltrow, Jake Gyllenhal and Hope Davis goes into limited release this weekend and wide release on the 30th. Double Yay.
And speaking of movie news, the glorious Annie Hathaway is taking on Lauren Weisberger's heroine from her novel, The Devil Wears Prada. The book about a the long-suffering personal assistant to the boss from hell is currently filming. The great Meryl Streep is playing the Devil of the title, magazine editor Miranda Priestly.
Personally, I would have loved to see Glenn Close playing Miranda, in fact, misread and thought Glenn close had the role and told about half a dozen people how excited I was. But, you know, that Streep girl...she's good too.
