Bill Murray and Kelly Lynch (star of many an 80s flick including Road House
, Drugstore Cowboy
, Curly Sue
and 2000's Charlie's Angels
) are friends. In Road House
, Lynch has sex with Patrick Swayze. Now every time Road House
is screened and Murray or one of his two brothers are watching, no matter what time or where they are, they call Lynch's husband (who is also a good friend of Murray's and the dude who wrote Scrooged
) and tell him that his wife is having sex with Swayze. They even describe the events of the scene as they unfold. They do this all the time.
How do we know? Lynch told the A.V. Club in an interview they did with her recently
"Speaking of Bill Murray, every time Road House is on and he or one of his idiot brothers are watching TV — and they’re always watching TV — one of them calls my husband and says [In a reasonable approximation of Carl Spackler], “Kelly’s having sex with Patrick Swayze right now. They’re doing it. He’s throwing her against the rocks.” [Away from the receiver.] What? Oh, my God. Mitch was just walking out the door to the set, and he said that Bill once called him from Russia."
We love you Bill Murray, and your brothers too.
Woah Nelly. Things are getting a bit Hot In Herre (hehe get it) for the rapper and his tour peeps. On Wednesday night the whole crew was detained after a sniffer dog detected drugs while their bus was going through border control in Sierra Blanca, and according to police reports they found 18g of heroin and 4.5kg of marijuana as well as a .45 caliber pistol upon searching the vehicle. Sounds like a party!
Just kidding. Drugs are bad. Guns are badder.
These dudes sure are in a DILEMMA (sorry sorry sorry). I know that maybe I should be a little more shocked by the fact that musicians on tour use illicit substances (what??!??), but basically all I am getting from this is that Nelly is 37 YEARS OLD. Queue collective jaw drop.
Let's reflect on more wholesome times.

I gotta admit, when the summer music festival season begins each year, the thought of having to head back to either the Myer Music Bowl, Flemington or the Showgrounds kinda gives me the shits a little. Don't get me wrong, I've been to a bunch of great festivals at a these venues (bring back Birrarung Marr BTW), but it's just getting a bit old is all. So when we first caught wind of a spanking new boutique festival being held at Werribee Mansion, our festive faith was reignited.
Let Them Eat Cake debuts on New Years Day 2013 at the picturesque mansion and is heralding one of the most exciting underground lineups we've had the pleasure of laying our eyes on. The first round was enough to get the sap rising with the likes of house legend Kerri Chandler, the genre-defying Flying Lotus and his protege The Gaslamp Killer all making their way down for the day fest.
But then this morning, we were blessed with a second and final round announcement that has sealed the deal and confirmed we're gonna have a quiet night in one NYE to make sure we're prepared.
Joining the gang will be one third of Detroit's Three Chairs outfit and Ugly Edits maestro Theo Parrish, the enigmatic Italian disco duo Tiger & Woods and London-based producer Om Unit.
It's exciting stuff and proves there's peeps out there who are thinking about the music and the experience when it comes to festivals, not just selling out and filling a racecourse full punters.
Tickets are on sale now through letthemeatcakenyd.com.au
and the first release has already sold out, so hurry yo asses up and get on board. See you at the mansion...
FINAL LET THEM EAT CAKE LINEUP:
The Gaslamp Killer
Mathew Jonson LIVE
Space Dimension Controller LIVE
Tiger & Woods
DJ Marky & Stamina

Dub Phizix & Strategy
Roasted cobia, green tomato juice and mollusk

This week on the tasting menu we featured a very simplistic, fresh fish course using the new season tomatoes. These tomatoes hold high acidity and have not experienced real temperatures for them to ripen and expel their natural sugars yet. So we juice them add some basil and hang the mixture resulting in a green tomato juice that's very clean and unassuming.
The fish is cobia, a member of the kingfish family also known as black kingfish. It is a very firm fleshed fish when raw with a high fat content which helps keep it moist when roasted. Also a seasonal fish which is plentiful at the moment.
We serve a little braise of mollusks cooked in their juices spooned over the top of the fish. For this we used periwinkles or sea snails. As I've not used these large Australian varieties before it was abit of fun discovering the best way to use them. They can be very tough and gritty- not for the BBQ.
We brine the snails in an acidic solution for 2 days before cooking to tenderise and clean them.
We also served some beautiful diamond shell clams and finished the dish with some basil oil.
A taste of things to come as the weather warms up.
2010 Frank Cornelissen MunJebel Rosso 7 VA, Sicilia, Italia
Frank C is what we in the wine industry describe as a "mad chiller". His wines are pure and unrefined. This wine in particular is 100% Nerello Mascalese - a Sicilian native varietal. The name Munjebel has a literal translation of Mountain of Fire… The vineyard is located on Mt. Etna, a still active volcano in Sicily. One of the ultimate examples of natural winemaking...
This is pretty cool. To celebrate Nintendo's launch of the New Art Academy on 3DS XL they are hosting a floating art class. Sounds weird (and awesome) because it is; the 'Digital Art Class' is taking place out on Sydney Harbour.
It doesn't matter if you're a fine arts student or have never touched a paintbrush, all you need to do is take a photo and then you are given a lesson on how to digitally replicate that image with the new Nintendo software.
The clincher is, acclaimed illustrator, art director and photographer Kelly Thompson will be hosting the event aboard the luxury catamaran. The event will also kickstart a competition for young digital artists where the winner could win a private masterclass with Kelly Thompson.

It's kind of impossible not to love Solange Knowles.
She's the edgier Beyonce (but still shows total groupie love and support for her big sister), is a blogger's fashion dream and is hella talented. Did you know she co-wrote 'Why Don't You Love Me', arguably one of Beyonce's most complex songs? Because she did. She really, really did.
Right now Solange is putting together her third studio album with the help of Dev Hynes (of Blood Orange and Lightspeed Champion), and Pharrel Williams (!!). The album is set for release in 2013, but for now she's put out a teaser for her upcoming single 'Losing You'.
