It is hilarious that Gary Oldman has two films on this list - and that they are both so different! He has played both Ludwig van Beethoven and Sid Vicious! It is also worth pointing out that Gary Oldman really is playing the piano during some of his scenes in Immortal Beloved and had a baby grand delivered to his hotel room during filming to practice!

Sophie Crumb, daughter of R. Crumb and Aline Kominsky-Crumb, has a new book of her art dating back from her childhood.
Genetics are unpredictable, but it’s not much of a surprise that when world famous artists R. Crumb and Aline Kominsky-Crumb combined DNA their daughter, Sophie Crumb, would follow in their alternative comics footsteps. Like her parents, Sophie's work is autobiographical, disturbing, raw, and often hilarious.
Nick Bantock, popular author of the Griffin & Sabine books is having his first ever art show here in Colorado through March 2011 at the Museum of Outdoor Arts! This may be the only time all the Griffin & Sabine original art appears in one place!
