Variety is reporting that the book Heavier Than Heaven has been optioned and screenwirter David Benioff has been hired to write it. I have been wanting to see a project like this for some time. But I am skeptical, because Courtney is producing and she also had a hand in the creation of the book. But none the less, I think it could be good. Rumor is, that Courtney would like to see Ewan McGregor play Kurt, but fans think Joe Anderson (Across the Universe) pictured here, would be a good fit. I don't know about him myself, but he does seem to be the right age, and does have that Kurt look. Any thoughts?

I went to check out "Black Francis" the other night, and was treated to some great new songs. Frank cranked out his new "rock opera" Bluefinger, which is a concept album of sorts, as it is based on the life and death of Dutch artist/musician Herman Broot. They're are some great tunes on the new one including threshold aprehension. which sounds a great deal like a Pixies song, particularly because of the female backing vocals. As a bonus, we got a celebrity Frank Black Fan sighting as, the other Black, Jack Black was there sporting a blonde short hair-do, for his upcoming film "Tropical Thunder".

Finally saw the great Moz, Saturday night at the world famous Hollywood Palladium. What a fun show, one of the best, I've seen in a very long time. Morrissey is a world class performer. He did everything right, he had the audience screaming for more. Great band, and after a 10 night residency, his voice still sounded good, pretty sweet.
