    50 Cent is preparing for a show on the Speed Channel that will be a copycat of Xzibit’s “”Pimp My Ride.”” He apparently wanted Julia Stiles to appear in the show and he offered her a pimped-out pick-up truck as an incentive. Julia Stiles replied that it should be a hybrid or bio-diesel fuel car, but her request fell on deaf ears because 50 Cent stopped calling her about the show. I guess we can add 50 to the list of people who are in the oil company’s pockets.

    “”Final Exits: The Illustrated Encyclopedia of How We Die”” by Michael Largo takes death into its own hands, or pages, if you will. This book illustrates causes of death, final words and burial customs of humanity, complete with pictures and historical illustrations of the deeds. How very morbid and enticing!

    Last Friday’s season premiere of “”Law and Order”” followed the case of a superstar who wanted pictures destroyed. The character of the superstar, who went by the name of Skye Sweet, was quite obviously based on Britney Spears. The story was nowhere near true, but the mirroring of celebrity action made for a good episode, proving that the long-running program has yet to run out of interesting ideas and combinations of law and order.

    Gripe of the week

    Cancel your all-night Jamie Kennedy movie festival, because the “”Scream”” and “”Malibu’s Most Wanted”” actor is no longer coming to the Rialto Theatre. Kennedy canceled his Tucson appearance due to “”scheduling conflicts.”” Oh well, there’s always a time slot in my heart for Jamie Kennedy, and it doesn’t matter how long it takes for his schedule to clear for me. Do you hear that, Jamie Kennedy? Always a time slot.
