I never thought I would ever drive anything except a bug…..until I saw the new Nissan cube. ¬†So I decided it was time for a change and MELS BUG got traded in today. ¬†I’ve gone from round to square. ¬†It was a little sad to let her go but I have a new friend now. ¬†I’d like you to meet my CUBE.

Hugh Hefner Signed Playboy Reprint

Thanks to Louis Torro for sending along this pic of his signed playboy reprint. ¬†Hugh Hefner was recently in Toronto for the International Film Festival and the premiere of a documentary about his life. ¬†Louis was there trying to get the first Playboy reprint autographed. He didn’t sign at the airport or coming into the theatre or exiting but he did stop to sign 6 autographs from the theatre stage just after he did¬†some questions and answers. Louis rushed into the crowd and managed to get the 4th signature he signed.¬†

New Wax Museum in Hollywood

I just came across this photo of a Marilyn wax figure that is located at the new Madame Tussaud’s Wax Museum in Hollywood, located right next to Grauman’s Chinese Theater.  I think it is pretty cool to have this pose so close to her handprints.  Has anyone seen the statue in person?

Here is a pic of visitors posing with her.
