All of Mozart's musical compositions are now free on the internet
The International Mozart Foundation, based in Salzburg, Austria, is supplying the online information, backed by financing from the Packard Humanities Institute. Hats off to those groups.

I regret that I never made it to Salzburg when I lived in Austria, even though I came so close so many times when I drove from Vienna to Munich. Austria is ga-ga for Mozart, of course, and all the little Austrian kids vie to play the part of Mozart in the annual Famous Composers Youth Pageant. Well, all except school-aged Schwarzenegger. He always said, "I'll be Bach."

"Michael Crichton Fictionalizes Critic as Child Rapist"
My favorite line in this article: "Crichton had fictionalized me as a child rapist. And, perhaps worse, falsely branded me a pharmaceutical-industry profiteer."

"Perhaps worse"? He can't decide whether he'd rather be known as a baby rapist or "heir to a pharmaceutical fortune."

'Babel' Leads Golden Globes With 7 Nods
There are a few odd pleasures here. DiCaprio is competing against DiCaprio. Eastwood has two films up for Best Picture (the two Iwo Jima movies.) Helen Mirren got virtually all of the female nominations. (She was nominated for playing both Queen Elizabeths.) That Borat guy is nominated for Best Actor! (Remember the Gloves separate comedies and musicals from dramas, so they produce twice as many nominations as the Oscars.)

Apocalypto Star Wants To Show He Can Do Mayan Comedy
"Actor Tee Dee Nae, star of Mel Gibson's new drama, Apocalypto, about the fall of the Mayan empire, told reporters attending a press junket yesterday that he refuses to be 'pigeonholed' as a dramatic Mayan actor, and would like to showcase his talent in more lighthearted Mayan fare. 'Most people don't know it, but I spent my first 10 years in the business doing Mayan improv at the Second City in Tikal.'"

So long, Paris
For years we've been paralyzed in the tractor beam of her brainless celebrity. Now it's time to kiss the creepy dollie goodbye.
" ... a couple of weeks ago, Hilton started messing with Britney Spears, weighing down Spears' Phoenix-flight from her crapola marriage to grody Kevin Federline by dressing her up in tutus, taking her partying till all hours, and encouraging her to flash her whiskerless nether regions to paparazzi. Now, we all know that Spears is perfectly capable of attracting the interest of Child Protective Services all on her own. But this most recent visit from the state, as reported by Page Six last Wednesday, cuts deeper than any baby-dropping seat-belt infractions ever did. That's because we suspect that it has not been prompted simply by Spears' legendarily poor judgment or naiveté. No. Those unfortunate qualities just made her an easier mark for the pernicious influence of the world's most famous succubutante, and the rope line of gaunt, twitching bodies in Hilton's wake tips us off that it's unlikely to end well for her latest victim."
