I saw the teaser for the new Hitchiker’s Guide to the Galaxy movie (starring Mos Def?), and was underwhelmed. I mean, I will of course go and see it unless I hear that it is a complete travesty. The news about MirrorMask, Neil Gaiman’s film project with Dave McKean, is much more exciting though.
Rick James is dead:
“Today the world mourns a musician and performer of the funkiest kind,” said Neil Portnow, president of the National Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences. “Grammy winner Rick James was a singer, songwriter and producer whose performances were always as dynamic as his personality. The `Super Freak’ of funk will be missed.”
