ALEX MORGAN U.S. SOCCER

U.S. Olympic soccer phenom Alex Morgan saved the day again last night, scoring the decisive goal on a header in OT to send the Americans past a feisty Canadian team.

Here are some images from her Sports Illustrated swimsuit issue shoot, in body paint no less: (more…)

Founded in 1973 by Gordon and Rena Merchant the company has never been stronger. The song is “Camouglage” by Small Black.

BREAKOUT: SVETLANA KHODCHENKOVA

In an otherwise drab and dreary cast of moody British spies clad in heavy tweed, Russian actress Svetlana Khodchenkova shines in the terrific Tinker Tailor Solider Spy. This film will undoubtedly be remembered as her breakout role, and the few scenes she is in leave us wanting much more. There is a slow and steady elegance to the film, and the sometimes laborious pacing shuns the too-often distracting techniques of modern thrillers. Once you settle in, the story unfolds remarkably and (more…)
