The rumours surrounding Wonder Woman have been swishing around the Hollywood vine for almost a decade, everyone from Megan Fox to Olivia Munn to my fave, Angelina Jolie have been peddled as the new Linda Carter.
Rumours End NOW! Wonder Woman will debut in Batman vs Superman, and the star spangled babe is being played by Israeli born actress and model Gal Gadot. Ms Gadot’s other claims to fame are as 2004 Miss Universe contestant from Israel, she’s also starred in 3 Fast & Furious franchise films, including the latest Fast & Furious 6, she’s also had supporting roles in Knight & Day, and Date Night.
Warner Brothers Pictures confirmed yesterday that Gadot, 28, has been cast to play Diana Prince in director Zack Snyder’s upcoming Man of Steel follow-up.

A turnaround in policy position isn’t a huge surprise straight after an election, it sought of goes with the the furniture. Except in this case, apparently, both sides of Australian politics were in FULL agreement prior to the last election?
Prime Minister Tony Abbott has denied that 10 weeks into governing, he’s breaking a pre-election promise – to match Labor’s school funding model – saying that his government would “do a little bit better.”
However, promises to one side, Australia’s new Government has just announced it will scrap the previous – Labor – governments plan for school funding reform, and will instead renegotiate individual agreements with all states and territories within the next 12 months.
Education Minister Christopher Pyne says Labor’s arrangements will stay in place for the coming year and will then be overhauled :: Read the full article »»»»

Melbourne Now is daylight’s answer to White Night Melbourne, the cultural festival that took the city hostage earlier this year. More manageable and minus the mosh pit, Melbourne Now does what it says – showcasing the works of nearly 400 local artists across a plethora of interactive spaces in the NGV, Ian Potter Centre and Federation Square.
A good place to start is the NGV, where large, psychedelic communal spaces have been erected in the foyer. There’s something deliciously rebellious about playing ping-pong in Melbourne’s most prestigious gallery, and this you can do, as well as stringing your own necklace with trinkets preselected by Meredith Turnbull.
Trippy installations pepper the upper levels, including Patrick Pound’s Gallery of Air – a seemingly random assortment of items that sees a whoopee-cushion, Fresh Prince of Bel-Air screenplay and Wedgwood vase fall unexpectedly into the same category :: Read the full Milkbar article »»»»

Our favourite adult superstar, Joanna Angel and her band The Gigolos, has released the official music video for their first single, “Gimme Some Pants.”
The video features Angel and Tommy Pistol – of Cheese Theatre fame – in clips from the BurningAngel adult film “Band Sluts,” spliced with other footage shot by director Mike Quasar.
“There are many shots of us trying on pants,” Ms Angel said.
And it’s true. In the video, playfully distressed stars Angel and Pistol just can’t seem to find the right pair of breeches. Despite the song’s title and much pants trying on and throwing, Angel remains mostly pantless throughout the SFW video.
Angel said her band is here to”kick down the door of the party and have some fun with a sound that pulls from the classic punk rock and pop anthems that we all grew up with, sprinkled with the trademark ’Joanna Angel’ humour, a wink and a smile.”
Drawing from influences such as The Sounds, Blondie, Beehive and the Barracudas, and Sleater-Kinney, the music is described as “a whole lotta sass with a little bit of ass.” NSFW! ADULT ONLY CONTENT :: Read the full article »»»»

Power-napping is an essential to most overhard-working professionals today, a quick pre-sws nap can quickly revitalize the warried mind, revitalizing for the next round of power filled decision making. Others may simply know it as a nanna nap, whatever, many swear by the Siesta del Hidalgo.
A couple of years ago the clever design boffins at Kawamura Ganjavian design studio came up with a soft flannelette bag – a cocoon for the head – that slipped gently over ones head, shutting the world out and allowing the user to drift of for the maximum benefits of sleep without the waking lethargy.
Ostrich Pillow was born, Studio Banana Things original Ostrich Pillow was a huge hit 2 years ago, it gained a bucket load of press and some solid sales. The clever boffins are back, this time you don’t need a small truck to cart around the Ostrich Pillow.
The clever design also makes the pillow perfect for commuting -use the buddy system though, muggings! – or long haul journeys, flying, training, busing and driving – again, caution: don’t attempt driving while wearing the pillow!
