Bizarre. [from USA Today]
Owen Wilson is breaking his silence. The actor, who was hospitalized last month for what police called an attempted suicide, has done his first interview. No, it’s not with Barbara Walters. He’s chatting with friend and filmmaker Wes Anderson, reports USA TODAY’s Anthony Breznican.
The interview will be posted online at midnight Friday as part of MySpace.com’s Artist on Artist series, according to Fox Searchlight, the studio that released the pair’s most recent film, The Darjeeling Limited. Anderson and Wilson have worked together on all of Anderson’s movies — Bottle Rocket, Rushmore, The Royal Tenenbaums and The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou. It’s unclear how far the interview, recorded today, will delve into Wilson’s recent personal struggles — if at all.
Our favorite blog, WFMU’s Beware of the Blog, has been doing a countdown to Halloween by featuring vintage low-budget movies. This homemade movie “Up For Grabs” is part of a collection called Monster Kid Home Movies which features backyard productions from the 60s, 70s and 80s. Check out “Zombie Nightmare” after the jump.

Williamsburg has a new superhero…. The Herpes Avenger. [From stdallstars]
So you live in the Williamsburg Greenpoint area? I know you probably love it. I love it too. But you should be aware of some things. Living here is much like living in a college dorm. It’s a hotbed (no pun intended) of sexually transmitted diseases. But it doesn’t have to be like this. Let’s face it, we are a group of creative and educated people. We are a community of psuedo intellectuals and artists. We can do better than this. I started this blog because I contracted herpes and I’m fucking pissed. If you are free of STDs, you should read this blog as a cautionary tale. If you are among the afflicted, maybe you would like to use this blog as a means of venting your frustration. Do you know somehow who is knowingly spreading disease? Send me a picture, I’ll be happy to post it.
We’ve really been enjoying the new record from Phosphorescent. Moving to Brooklyn becomes him. From Aquarium Drunkard:
Released this week, Pride, the latest full-length from Phosphorescent, finds Matthew Houck and company improving on the recipe that first drew us in (two-plus years ago) with release of his second album Aw Come, Aw Wry. An Elephant 6 like mixture, filtered, through, say, Bonnie Prince” Billy, it became one of our favorite LPs of 2005. Now part of the newly minted Dead Oceans label, and having moved from Athens, GA to his new home of Brooklyn, NY, Phosphorescent tightens things up creating his best work to date.
