Courtney Love oughta tap Michelle Williams for the role of herself in the upcoming Courtney & Kurt film she's planning, not Scarlett Johansson. The similarities surrounding Heath Ledger's death and Kurt Cobain's 1992 death are nothing less than eerie. Both left behind 2-year-old little girls (Heath's Matilda; Kurt's Francis Bean) and blonde loves (also celebs in their own right) who got pregnant almost by accident. Also, both men were on the brink of successful careers.

Of course, there are major differences, like the fact that Kurt offed himself and Heath's cause of death is yet to be determined.

But both were in their late 20s (Kurt, 27; Heath, 28). Crazy stuff, huh?

Hillary Clinton or Barrack Obama?

I just don't know which frontrunner to support. One's unattractive but whipsmart, easily dismissed by most men, liberals, and a growing number of women. The other's a hottie with a brigade-by-brigade Iraq withdrawl plan.

(How big is a brigade, exactly?)

None the matter. It'll take an act of God and Congress and beyond to clean up the international diplomatic mess. ARGH!

How comforting to know, in the wake of all this debate, Christina Aguilera gave birth to a baby boy! So did Courtney Thorne-Smith, but does anyone remember her? God knows I'll be factchecking her age at some magazine sometime soon.

Happy week, people. May you be as mellow as I am right this minute, listening to Morphine's brilliant "Cure For Pain" before bed.

How cool is it that the two front-runner Democrat nominees are a black man and a woman?

Naysayers, even you must admit: We've come a long way. (Okay, stop mocking me and being cynical, especially you Kucinich hippies). I don't know what to do about Iraq, Kenya, or the environment, but neither do you!

In other news, I'd like to say a little prayer on the 'Lair for my girl Annie B. My partner in crime in friendship and musicianship. Check out the new recordings on our myspace page, and then send her a personal message on her Project Applesauce page. She's getting hip-replacement surgery and needs your love.

So does my other best friend Karina, who just had a baby boy on Christmas Eve! Little Sebastian Jose is eating everything in sight (just like mama. Heck, just like me!), I'm told.

I can't believe my BFF since kindergarden knocked one out -- Hooray for mommies everywhere!

Happy New Year!

I have a confession to make.

No, I'm not gay.

But I did write this article about Babeland's super-duper holiday soiree. You know you wanna take a peek (don't worry, your boss won't fire you for getting educated on the job). ;)
