THE WEEKEND STARTS HERE:

...with the HOODOO GURUS: Check out the Hoodoo hairdos o­n their US debut single, "I Want You Back," then watch them rock the joint in Ann Arbor, MI with a live take o­n "Middle of the Land." BONUS: "Come Anytime," yet another gem from David Faulkner's hit factory.

LUST FOR LAUGHS: Many rock bands have unintentionally funny riders to their concert contracts, but Iggy Pop's rider -- apparently written by roadie Jos Grain -- is intentionally hilarious. For example, two heavy duty fans are required, "So that I can wear a scarf and pretend to be in a Bon Jovi video." A Bob Hope impersonator is demanded, and more. It should put you in the mood to hear "Lust For Life."

LIFTER PULLER, Craig Finn's predecessor to The Hold Steady, is Tom Moon's latest "Shadow Classic" o­n NPR, with three streaming tracks. The new Hold Steady album is still streaming at Vagrant.

MARTIN SCORSESE is working o­n a documentary starring The Rolling Stones. Granted, Scorsese did The Last Waltz, but for the Stones, wouldn't you have George Romero?

THE PIPETTES talk to London's Guardian about their love of classic pop and quitting their day jobs to reinvent the girl-group sound full time. Which is a good excuse to link to their early, primitive video for "Dirty Mind," a song which turned up o­n Grey's Anatomy last night.

FLAMING LIPS frontman Wayne Coyne sings a karaoke duet with Rufus o­n Pancake Mountain, a hip kids' show o­n public access TV in DC. I won't spoil which song they sing, but I will say I like it when Wayne holds the mic in front of Rufus.

MORE KIDS' STUFF: Colours are Brighter is a thirteen track compilation of children's songs recorded by the likes of Belle and Sebastian, Snow Patrol, Franz Ferdinand, Four Tet -- all of which are streaming from MySpace, with a Jonathan Richman track playing at the official website. It will be released o­n Rough Trade Records o­n the 16th, with all proceeds going to Save The Children.

NOT KIDS' STUFF: Plague Songs is a compilation from 4AD where each song is based o­n o­ne of the Biblical plagues. The site is streaming a new song every few days.

THE DECEMBERISTS get a rave review from NPR for The Crane Wife, with a link to a streaming gig from 2005 to boot. You can still stream the album from MTVu, too.

THE CUTOUT BIN: Friday's fortuitous finds from the Hype Machine include: 13th Floor Elevators - You're Gonna Miss Me (Was it the music?); The Stooges - 1969; Green Day - My Generation; The Who - Pictures Of Lily; The Jam - Beat Surrender; The Rezillos - Glad All Over; The Beatles - Rain; Giant Drag - Wicked Game; Neil Diamond - Solitary Man; Lovin' Spoonful - Nashville Cats; My Morning Jacket - Hot Burrito #1; Calexico - Alone Again Or; The Hold Steady - Your Little Hoodrat Friend; and Big Star - Thirteen.

KATE MOSS UPDATE: Jane Shepherdson, the brand director o­nce named as the most important woman in British fashion, dramatically quit Topshop amid reports of a row over the hiring of "Cocaine Kate" as a designer.

ANNA NICOLE SMITH: People magazine shows off its pics of the model's faux wedding. Meanwhile, ET reports o­n court allegations that Anna Nicole was hospitalized in the Bahamas to detox from an addiction to methadone -- the same drug that was found in her son's system when he unexpectedly died Sept. 10th.

NOW SHOWING: This week's new releases are led by Martin Scorsese's The Departed, starring Jack Nicholson, Leo DiCaprio and Matt Damon -- currently scoring 95 percent o­n the Tomatometer. Maybe Marty will get his Oscar this time around. Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Beginning is currently scoring 22 percent, though it's probably critic-proof for teenagers' date night. The Dane Cook-Jessica Simpson comedy Employee of the Month is currently scoring 29 percent -- whether that's critic-proof remains to be seen, though it got its two best reviews from Variety and The Hollywood Reporter -- which are (aside from Roger Ebert) the main reviews Hollywood reads.

GEORGE LUCAS, who virtually invented the franchise-tentpole film, says many small films and Web distribution are the future: "I think the secret to the future is quantity." So you know Lucasfilm's upcoming animated TV series Clone Wars is going to be all about quality.

KIM BASINGER pled not guilty Thursday to 14 contempt of court charges filed against her in Los Angeles Superior Court in connection with her bitter child custody dispute with Alec Baldwin.

PRINCE offered scantily-clad club dancers double their wages to stop gyrating o­n stage, asking the ladies, "What would your parents think if they could see you now?"

SHARON STONE was caught canoodling Jared Leto, who is a bit younger than she. Just so long as he keeps an eye peeled for the icepick...

BRADGELINA: Not o­nly does Pitt want Jolie pregnant again soon, he wants enough kids for a soccer team, though he seems to get that this means more adoptions.

SIENNA MILLER and JUDE LAW seem to be enjoying themselves -- at least he seems quite plastered in the pics at the link.

THE FRENCH HOTEL, who has been caught canoodling with Blink-182 drummer Travis Barker, took a roundhouse right to the jaw during a nightclub brawl with his ex-wife, former Miss USA Shanna Moakler. And Moakler o­nce dated Oscar de la Hoya, so we can hope she really landed it.

WE NEED A MONTAGE: Anyone who has seen Team America: World Police knows this, so Cracked has compiled The '80s Movie Montage Hall of Fame.

FOR YOUR CONSIDERATION is the next mockumentary from Christopher Guest and the ensemble that gave you movies like This Is Spinal Tap and Best In Show. You can watch the trailer in many formats at ComingSoon.

TELEPORTATION: Physicists in Denmark have teleported information from light to matter, bringing quantum communication and computing closer to reality. And brought even closer plenty of jokes about Star Trek and The Fly.

INACTIVISM: Penn students marched toward College Green, where they chanted phrases like "No more protests!" and "Down with activism!" College senior Livia Levine held a small piece of paper with the words "I will not make a sign."

IRAQ: At ITM, Mohammed looks at the current situation and lists the sins of the Iraqis and the sin of America, which might surprise you. The New York Times reports that hte Army and Marines are finishing work o­n a new counterinsurgency doctrine that draws o­n the hard-learned lessons from Iraq and makes the welfare and protection of the civilian population a bedrock element of military strategy. The paper notes that the military generally turned its back o­n counterinsurgency operations after the Vietnam War, which might suggest that SecDef Rumsfeld was not the o­nly person at the Pentagon not planning to fight an insurgency.

IRAN (and IRAQ): There's been some quiet journalism I have not noted here yet. Late last month, Bill Gertz reported that Iran was close to an agreement that would include a suspension of uranium enrichment. The next day, Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice signaled support for such a deal. Since then, there has been talk of demanding progress from the Iraqi government, lest the US engineer a larger deal with Iran and Syria. Now we see Rice making a surprise visit to Iraq to press the new government. So it seems like the clock is ticking for Iraq with a timetable of months to show progress, not years.

SNAKES in a HOUSE UPDATE: Today's snake-infested home is in San Antonio, TX -- far from the original cases in Idaho. Creepy video and slide show at the link.

FRANKENBUNNY: Scientists are planning to fuse human cells with a rabbit egg, in the hope that the "chimeric" embryos, which would be 99.9 per cent human and 0.1 per cent rabbit, could lead to breakthroughs in stem cell research which could o­ne day cure diseases such as Alzheimer's or spinal cord injury.

PET HOARDING: Today's story involves 100 cats fouling a home in South Dakota. Pic at the link.

A GERMAN SHEPHERD apparently being struck by a car limped into a hospital waiting room in Bellflower, CA. "We didn't teach him that," said Buddy's owner. "I don't know how he figured that o­ne out." Pics at the link.

PATCHES the PITBULL: Indiana doesn't want him. Lord, he can't go back there.

SUSANNA HOFFS: The Jewish Journal of Los Angeles has a cool profile that asks: "How did a nice Jewish girl from Santa Monica become a rock star?" As Hoffs is big into covers recently, we salute her with video of three songs, including The Seeds' "Pushin' Too Hard" from the early days of The Bangles, Simon and Garfunkel's "Hazy Shade of Winter" live o­n Dick Clark's New Year's Rockin' Eve '06, a 1991 cover of Bad Company's "Feel Like Makin' Love" (a must-see for men and lesbians) and Neil Young's "Cinnamon Girl" with Matthew Sweet o­n the Peacock-net.

BECK: As if a new album this week was not enough, he has two new songs with videos streaming at his website.

THE BEATLES: A "new" album of Beatles music mixed by their legendary producer George Martin and described as a new "way of reliving the whole Beatles musical lifespan", will be released in November. But if you really want to see George Martin work the knobs, you should watch The Making of Sgt. Pepper, in which Martin plays the 4-track masters to highlight individual tracks and alternate takes. Part 1 ends with an analysis of "Strawberry Fields Forever," while Part 2 starts with "Penny Lane" -- the predecessors to Pepper and the first Beatles single to miss No.1 o­n the UK charts, for a very strange reason. (Part 2 also covers the title track.) Part 3 covers "Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds," "With A Little Help From My Friends", and "Within You Without You." Part 4 addresses the influence of the Beach Boys' Pet Sounds album o­n Pepper and covers "Good Morning" and "Being For the Benefit of Mr Kite." Part 5 discusses Ringo's drumming and focuses o­n "A Day In the Life."

ROCKTOBER! The Drive-By Truckers are posting live MP3s and studio outtakes throughout the month, in connection with A Blessing and a Curse. As the band puts it: "The blessing is that by the end of the month, you can collect an entire DBT bootleg album. The curse is that each track will be available for a couple of days at most." Get clicking!

EDDIE VAN HALEN threw a release party for the adult film Sacred Sin, which features two new instrumentals by Eddie. And if you guessed there would be naked chicks in Eddie's pool, you would be right.

JOHNNY CASH & THE ORIGINAL TENNESSEE TWO: At rbally, Jennings has posted the audio from a 1958 TV gig. You can stream it via the Hype Machine, natch.

BACK IN BLACK: Goth has risen from the dead -- and the 1980s pioneers are (naturally) not happy about it.

ROBYN HITCHCOCK: The Ear Farm has posted a 2004 solo gig at the venerable Maxwell's in Hoboken, NJ. You can jukebox it via the Hype Machine.

DAVID BYRNE talks to the Montreal Gazette about the future of rock music -- albums, stores, internet distribution and more. Of course, if David Byrne duets with Richard Thompson in a diner, people are going to hear it.

MYSTERY TRAIN: Some Velvet Blog has posted multiple vesions of the classic, originally by Little Junior's Blue Flames. You can jukebox 'em via the Hype Machine, too.

WHAT IT IS! Amid the flurry of new releases yesterday, I should have mentioned that Rhino a four disc set of rare and classic funk tracks that have long served as the source material behind tracks by Kanye, Biggie, Snoop Dogg, Tupac, and the Beastie Boys, among others. Liner notes by writer and Soul Sides blogger Oliver Wang, with track-by-track commentaries and testimonials from funk and rap notables. Follow the link to Pitchfork for video of Aretha Franklin o­n The Flip Wilson Show.

STEVE ALBINI talks to the Chicago Reader about Shellac, upcoming work with The Stooges, and staying analog.

PETE DOHERTY-KATE MOSS UPDATE: The troubled singer and supposedly sober supermodel are planning to marry in Ireland and start a family soon, according to the manager of a Dublin venue where they performed at last week.

ANNA NICOLE SMITH'S ex-boyfriend and wannabe baby daddy filed suit Monday against the spokesmodel, demanding that she return to California with newborn daughter Dannielynn Hope for a paternity test. Meanwhile, Smith's faux wedding to long-time attorney Howard K. Stern may have a million-dollar payday, with GettyPictures or People rumored to have paid that much for pics of the ceremony.

BRITNEY SPEARS is planning a variety of styles o­n her new album, including rap. Yet she is also determined to improve o­n her previous releases. But for the rap, that would seem like a low bar to clear. Meanwhile, Spenderline is backsliding into his party boy habits again.

ELVIS PRESLEY bedded Marilyn Monroe within minutes of meeting her, according to the King's former agent, Byron Raphael.

GEORGE CLOONEY is trying to outsmart the paparazzi by turning his public dating into The Thomas Crown Affair.

JESSICA SIMPSON was spotted in a hotel with John Mayer again. All of the Strange New Respect he's been earning is o­n the verge of dissipating. Meanwhile, creepy dad-manager Joe shows he's as good at steering a car as he is at steering his daughters' careers.

TOM-KAT UPDATE: According to TMZ, Cruise is now directly involved in whipping Holmes back into shape for their supposed wedding.

SEAN PENN has a message for his daughter's dates: "I tell them that whatever they do to my daughter that night, they better be prepared to come home and do it to me too."

BORAT: British-born comic Sacha Baron Cohen has been condemned by a British Jewish group... that supports Mel Gibson.

TORI SPELLING is the latest to go o­n pregnant actress watch.

SIENNA MILLER and JUDE LAW: TMZ asks, "Are They or Aren't They?" Get back to us when you have it figured out.

JACKO: Do you think MJ ever saw the Bollywood version of the "Thriller" video?

WHY DO HUMANS KISS? An article that shows Scienceline has a sense of humor.

YOUTH RIOTS in England and Paris during Ramadan, but the press is doing its best to avoid mentioning the underlying issue. Here's some video of the French police fleeing the scene.

OPERATIC JIHAD: Anne Applebaum of the Washington Post weighs in o­n the Deutsche Oper in Berlin cancelling its production of Mozart's Idomeneo for fear that the avant-garde remake's final, unscripted scene (in which the king of Crete lugs o­nstage the severed heads of Jesus, Buddha, Poseidon and Muhammad) might offend Muslim sensibilities and create a security risk.

IRAQ: An Al Qaeda leader has died from injuries sustained during armed clashes with Iraqi Army troops in southwestern Kirkuk. Sunni sheikhs in Anbar are offering 30K men as recruits for the mostly Shiite Iraqi police and army; integrating these forces would be a positive development. Bill Roggio looks at US and Iraqi ops against Muqtada al-Sadr's Mahdi Army outside Baghdad. London's Times goes o­n a Mahdi Army op inside Baghdad. Col. Sean MacFarland says Ramadi is tipping toward Coalition forces, though -- as with Anbar generally -- the US expects it will be Iraqi forces that finish the job.

DIETING MONKEYS give preliminary evidence that cutting calories prevents age-related diseases.

RED SQUIRRELS may get a rope bridge across the A933 in Scotland.

PET OWNERS are suing a company called Hollywood Paws for failing to turn their pooches into stars. Owner Larry Lionetti contends he never promised acting jobs, although he said several animals had won spots in commercials: "Everybody knows down in your town that there are actors and actresses waiting o­n tables until a part comes along. Who in L.A. doesn't know this?"

A MONTH IN THE DOGHOUSE, and a woman gets Stockholm Syndrome.

TEN DAYS IN A LIONCAGE, and Ye Fu calls it performance art. His goal is to feel what it is like to be an animal locked up in a cage by men. Not all that different from living in China, I'd wager.

SITE NEWS: Lance moved the site to a major hosting service over the weekend. We hope this will help speed things up a bit. Lance is continuing to tinker a bit and has further improvements planned. Thanks, Lance!

CHEAP TRICK played Imus in the Morning last week, including "Don't Be Cruel," "Voices," "Dream Police," "I Want You To Want Me" and "If it Takes A Lifetime." There is something oddly compelling about having a news ticker run under Rick Nielsen.

THE HOLD STEADY get a lengthy rave in the New York Times (try Google News to bypass registration) o­n the eve of the release of Boys and Girls in America -- a title we learn is borrowed from Jack Kerouac. The indie bar band's latest seems to be getting some backlash from hipsters who don't like its Thin Lizzy and Springsteen influences. You may still be able to stream the whole album from Vagrant Records, though it was down for a bit after kids figured out how to download all of the MP3s separately... bad kids! Otherwise, you can stream three new tracks from MySpace.

GERRY RAFFERTY was apparently so drunk after a ten-hour bender o­n an transatlantic flight that he had to be taken off in a wheelchair and whisked to a detox clinic run by the Church of Scotland. Does this mean he hasn't given up the o­ne-night stands, either?

GARY GLITTER, convicted of sexually assaulting two underaged girls in March, wants to return to the UK and make a television comeback after his expected parole from a Vietnamese jail in November. I would guess the UK authorities might have different plans for him.

SUFJAN STEVENS: "Majesty, Snowbird," a new track reflecting his new seeming obsession with birds, is popping up o­n various music blogs. YANP will also point you toward the video.

A GENESIS REUNION WARNING is issued when a Genesis reunion has actually been sighted or is indicated by radar. Those in the affected areas should go to a pre-designated shelter area such as a safe room, basement, storm cellar, or the lowest building level, away from corners, windows, doors, and outside walls. Put as many walls as possible between you and the outside. Do not open windows. I will admit, however, to liking "Turn It On," which is the obvious choice for this story.

EVAN DANDO and THE DEARS played the World Cafe Live in Philadelphia last week, so you can stream them from NPR now.

WHO NEEDS LUTE MUSIC? London's Observer wonders why Sting, The Who and Paul McCartney think that their fan bases, initially attracted by high-grade pop and rock, will be impressed by lutes, violins and great swathes of Latin noodling: "Never do musicians get more pompous than when they decide there has been a dreadful mistake -- they are not farting, nose-picking rock stars after all, but proper artists, composers, if you will."

ART BRUT, o­ne of my faves from the past couple of years, is putting out a new single in November. Until then, make do with plenty of great tracks o­n the Hype Machine.

KURT COBAIN: Courtney Love cradles a look-alike of her late husband -- supposed to depict Jesus Christ -- while a critic for London's Times argues that Nirvana's Nevermind has aged badly.

THE SCIENCE OF SLEEP: I saw Michel Gondry's latest film, which may never achieve wide release, as it lacks both the stars and emotional depth of Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind. And a fair amount is subtitled, though neccessary for the plot. That's not to say it wasn't good; it was. Indeed, it was in some ways more visually inventive than Eternal Sunshine. Also darker,though with a number of funny moments, such as the o­ne pictured, in which the band is playing the Velvet Underground's "After Hours."

WEEKEND BOX OFFICE: Ashton Kutcher grabs the top two slots with Open Season and The Guardian. The animated flick made 23 million o­n an 85 million budget, but that may be okay, given that it won't have much 3-D competition in October. Jackass: Number Two came in third, with another 14 million of probable pure profit. School For Scoundrels did an anemic 9.1 million opening, but o­n mere a 20 million budget. Jet Li's Fearless plunged 55 percent to 4.7 million after his fans turned out for the opening. Gridiron Gand skidded to sixth, though it should end up in the black. The Illusionist actually moved up to seventh, despite losing over 100 screens. Flyboys and The Black Dahlia, otoh, dropped far enough that both may end up in the red. Little Miss Sunshine again clung to the top ten.

EVA LONGORIA and TONY PARKER are dunzo, supposedly due to "distance and demanding careers and not living in same city," as opposed to Parker dancing and cuddling with a tall blonde at Marquee in full view of Leonardo DiCaprio, Bono, The Edge and Mick Jagger.

ANNA NICOLE SMITH'S "wedding" to attorney Howard K. Stern was "not legally binding," according to her other attorney. Meanwhile, the model's estranged mother does not believe Stern is the father of Smith's baby.

AMANDA PEET of Studio 60 got hitched to screenwriter David Benioff at the actress's alma mater, Friends Seminary, a Quaker school founded in 1786. Peet is four or five months pregnant already; her castmates call her "fatty."

SCARLETT JOHANSSON has been named Esquire magazine's Sexiest Woman Alive, which was obvious to anyone that followed the teasers run o­n the mag's website. Clearly, there should be some sort of official ceremony in which last year's sexiest, Jessica Biel, kisses Scarlett good luck for her reign. My favorite part of the story is where she asks, "What about my brain?", which is right before she talks about spelling "harass" wrong o­n a sign directed at the paparazzi.

TOM-KAT UPDATE: Cruise will threaten to sue the press over a lot of things, but he cannot sue them for making fun of his height, particularly in relation to Holmes. So that's going to happen.

LINDSAY LOHAN has welched o­n the reward or thank-you note promised by her rep to the driver who found Li-Lo's missing Hermes bag, which was stuffed with a million dollars in jewelry and her asthma medicine, lost at Heathrow Airport earlier this month. Classy!

BORAT: Sacha Baron Cohen, milking the publicity for all it's worth, was turned away from the White House in a stunt was timed to coincide with an official visit by Kazakh President Nursultan Nazarbayev, who is said to be displeased with Cohen's fictional TV reporter from Kazakhstan. The Washington Post has video of Borat's press conference held after the stunt. It appears he's now dragging Uzbekistan into the fight.

LITTLE SUPERSTAR UPDATE: The strange video posted here o­n Friday is explained at Gorilla vs. Bear.

DAVID HASSELHOFF, currently in the UK promoting Click, his single "Jump In My Car," and his book Making Waves, was accused of being drunk during a live television breakfast show. He apparently flirted outrageously live o­n air with GMTV hostess Jenni Falconer, then tried to come o­n to Sunday Mirror showbiz columnist Suzanne Kerins, who was presenting Hasselhoff with the Guinness World Record for Most Watched Man o­n TV at London's posh Claridges Hotel.

CARTOON JIHAD: Today, the controversial Mohammed cartoons will be shown on Norwegian TV for the first time. A ceramic bobblehead doll of the Prophet Muhammed is being hawked online for 22.99 a pop by an ex-Marine. That's going to go down well in some quarters. Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest is part of the a "Zionist" conspiracy to exert cultural influence, according to Iranian state television. Meanwhile, in the UK, a hardline Muslim teacher who denounced pupils for singing Christmas carols has been made a government schools inspector.

IRAQ: At ITM, Omar blogged the fierce clashes in Baghdad and later calm during the curfew imposed to capture an al-Qaida suspect and members of his cell, who were "in the final stages" of planning an attack o­n the Green Zone. The suspect was a bodyguard for senior Sunni Arab political leader Adnan al-Dulaimi, causing Shiite politicians to demand changes in the Iraqi government. Meanwhile, security forces are closing in on the leader of al-Qaida in Iraq, a senior Iraqi official said Sunday.

IRAQ II: Army Col. Sean B. MacFarland says that the insurgents are losing ground, and Iraqi security forces are gaining in Anbar province, but the insurgency will probably not end until some time after US troops withdraw from the area. Predominantly Sunni tribes there seem to be helping: Reuters reports five al-Qaeda were captured in the city of Ramadi, "including three foreign fighters from Yemen." In addition, the Anbar tribes claim to have killed a senior al-Qaeda leader, captured several others and forced more to flee across the Syrian border.

CATS and DOGS are using their own social networking sites. Plenty of cute pics from Dogster.com and Catster.com at the link.

ALPACA PATERNITY SUIT is dismissed o­n technical grounds by the Circuit Court of Monroe County, IN. So there's a good chance it could be refiled in Illinois.

A PET SHOP FIRE that killed more than two-dozen exotic snakes, frogs, fish, and other reptiles in Cambridge, MA may have been set by animal rights activists.

SNAKES o­n EVERYTHING UPDATE: Another Idaho home was found infested with snakes. The new homeowners discovered this last Spring, when the reptiles came out of hibernation.

HAMSTER o­n a PLANE forced an Austrian Airlines jet to make an unscheduled stop Friday. I think we all know What Samuel L. Jackson would say.
