RANDALL KING / MOVIES

Someone like... Bond?

With some trepidation, Adele took the job of singing the song that accompanies the opening titles of the new James Bond movie Skyfall, joining a club of luminaries that include Paul McCartney, Tom Jones and Louis Armstrong. It's not all that exclusive a club, mind you. Note contributions from Lulu, A-ha, Duran Duran and Garbage.

The War of 1812: pretty funny conflict, eh?

He has one of the best fake-news voices in the business (remember his portrayal of addle-pated anchorman Jim Walcott on CBC's The Newsroom?), which makes comic actor Peter Keleghan a perfect choice to host and narrate an irreverent history that marks the 200th anniversary of the infamous Canada/U.S. conflict. The War of 1812: Been There, Won That (tonight at 8 on CBC) is factual but silly, and a perfect vehicle for Keleghan's deadpan wit and sly-smiling style.

World's Best Father

Photographer Dave Engledow's series of ironic, clever portraits of himself and his daughter, Alice Bee, have taken the Internet by storm. The posed photos -- which include dad arm-wrestling Alice in a shot called Over the Top, and a hilarious take on the Time magazine 'Are You Mom Enough? breastfeeding cover -- are endlessly entertaining. Engledow, based in Austin, Texas, now has a Kickstarter campaign going to make a book of his witty works. See his stuff at http://www.fotoblur.com/people/engledow/gallery

What's next? Keith Richards has taken drugs?

Talk about a shocking revelation. Arnold Schwarzenegger has admitted to sleeping with women other than his wife. Flogging his new memoir, Total Recall, the former body builder, movie star and governor of California has owed up to having made "mistakes" -- quite a few of them, actually -- that eventually cost him his marriage to Kennedy family heiress Maria Shriver. At least he didn't try to claim he was a virgin.

Blowing in the wind

It doesn't matter to Bobsters that they can only understand about 10 per cent of what Bob Dylan is singing/rasping about, the 71-year-old troubadour will be at the MTS Centre Friday in the flesh -- wrinkled as it may be. It's 50 years since his self-titled debut album and the voice of his generation is, somehwhat surprisingly, being lauded for his latest record, Tempest. If Zimmy's not enough for you, he will share the stage with another legend -- former Dire Straits frontman Mark Knopfler.
