director Roman Polanski last night was greeted with applause while
picking up his lifetime achievement award at the Zurich Film

With the exception of dopes like Joel Tannenbaum and Jammie Rasset, record labels have moved away from trying to sue the poop out of individuals for copyright infringement. But before you go look for Feist's new album on thepiratebay.com, there is a new group called Digital Rights Corp. that will go out and find suspected copyright infringers and demand you pay them $10. Yeah, 10 fucking dollars. So watch your ass when you download the Bob Marley discography, smokey.

Bennett, singer/political advisor(?), is on the hot seat after
telling Howard Stern on Monday that President George W. Bush admitted
to him that the Iraq War was a mistake. “He told me personally that
night, he says, ‘I think I made a mistake,’ ” Bennett said,
