    Gus Van Sant and Bret Easton team up on Suicide film

    Gus Van Sant and author Bret Easton Ellis will be teaming up to write a script about the double suicide of artists Theresa Duncan and Jeremy Blake. The script will be based on the Golden Suicides article featured in Vanity Fair in January 2008. Duncan and Blake were a couple that did films as well as video games. Theresa was best known for her work on CD-Rom game, Chop Suey and her husband was a digital artist and graphic designer at Rockstar. The Vanity Fair story is almost unbelievable. The tale of how the two met, how they fell in love and the passion they had for art and each other. But there are dark moments too. Reports of the couple becoming paranoid and thinking that Scientologists were out to ruin their career. Theresa killed herself in 2007 and Blake could not recover.

    Get your avatar in the Halloween mood

    Halloween is about two and a half weeks away, and while you may not dress up, if you want to spend the money you can dress up your avatar. Plus side, it’s probably cheaper than buying yourself a costume. Prices for avatar Halloween items range from 80 MS Points to 240. Items range from various themed hats to full costumers for witches, vampire, ghosts, mummy, and others. My guess is the vampire one might be popular just cause of New Moon alone. They even made a werewolf, but it’s only available to dudes. Take a look at all the various avatar costumes here. Follow
