    Site note

    Hi all. I'm off to South Africa and Zambia for just under a month but will try to keep the site updated, although it should be pretty quiet. It would be great if readers could post any news, photos or links in the comments section and I'll update with new posts when I can (I'll have my iPad with me).

    Other unconfirmed guests at the poker night (via Twitter) - Liam Hemsworth, Tom Brady and Patrick Dempsey. There probably won't be any press coverage.

    Have a great month everybody.

    Re: site note

    Thanks very much everybody - lots of fun travels ahead starting with Cape Town.

    Chris Hemsworth and Don Cheadle were also at the poker event. A post from Shannon Elizabeth: http://www.whosay.com/status/shannonelizabeth/846352?wsref=tw&code=giA7RNB

    A Matt and Alexia reference.

    Since 2008, when he started reviewing movies for Taxi TV — his old-timey newsman voice booming from the back seat of cabs around the city — Sandy Kenyon has become a Big Apple institution. “It has been the single greatest thing that has happened to me in my career,” says the WABC entertainment reporter. Kenyon says he’s regularly approached by New Yorkers asking for selfies and movie recommendations. Even Matt Damon and his daughter Alexia are fans. “I gave Matt my Taxi TV mug for her!” says Kenyon, who is hosting an Oscar preview special, “The Road to Gold,” on WABC-TV this Saturday.

    Behind the Candelabra is still winning awards - this time for sound mixing and costume design on Saturday.

    Re: Fund raiser

    I have no idea what Yano looks like, so I don't know if he's in the photo or not. But they sure look to be having a good (and very man-centric) time. :-)

    Re: Fund raiser

    There was a photo of Yano on the FB page. Brigid Coulter is there with Don (but definitely an exception). And it looks like Aaron Paul was the winner?

    Article in Slate

    Here's an article about the depth and ongoing resonance of the Bourne character from Slate. It's so spot-on I could have written it myself. Love this! And, amusingly, I see a bunch of what I assume to be studio shills trashing Bourne In the comments section. Do they really think trashing the trilogy makes Legacy look better?! Lol.

    Re: Article in Slate

    Summed up exactly what I loved about the original Bourne series. Matt took something fairly basic and made it extraordinary. That's how talented he is. Marcia

    omaze winner

    So where is the winner and his bestie? Why so little coverage? Nothing about the "date" and so little info about the winner - makes one wonder about the contest. Remember? The people who donated their money so you all can continue on with your generous endeavors.

    Re: omaze winner

    Huh? There will be a story with the winner, and information on the Omaze website. it has only been a few days, and he was at Saturday's celeb event. the event was private and there was not any media coverage. and this is only a fan site.
