I can't lie. I was bummed -- if not 100 percent totally shocked -- to hear the news about Steve Irwin. Yeah, there was the thing with his infant son and the crocodile a few years ago. Read more »

“People are crazy here, no?," director Joao Pedro Rodrigues half-asks over the phone from LA, where he’s making a brief visit to promote Two Drifters (aka Odete), which opens in the Bay Area this week. His words bring to mind a certain observation by a Hollywood starlet that then became a Rex Reed book title. But in Rodrigues’s case the remark might partly be inspired by the star of Two Drifters – the person whose apartment he’s visiting, Ana Cristina de Oliveira, who has since gone on to a role in Michael Mann’s Miami Vice remake.

Fab intern K. Tighe went to Thursday's Fashion Week emerging designers extravaganza, here's the take:

Oh, I've got style for miles and miles -- but trendy I am not. I've been wearing a uniform of jeans, cowboy boots and free band swag t-shirts for years -- and the thought of dressing up for such an event frankly turns my stomach a little. Read more »
