Kim Gordon sounds off

When Sonic Youth's Thurston Moore and Kim Gordon announced they were splitting up, the indie rock world had its very own Kardashian moment. Although fans were worried about the fate of the band, the focus was really on Moore and Gordon's idealized long-term relationship and what that meant for the generation that had put them on a pedestal. In her first extensive interview since the split, the 59-year-old artist and musician talks to Elle magazine about Moore's infidelity, surviving cancer and what's next for her.

Homegrown: Here's Howe

CBC must have decided it had a good thing going, puck-wise, when it filmed both of its popular Don Cherry-inspired movie projects in Winnipeg -- so much so, in fact, that it returned to our Jets-fuelled Prairie burg for Mr. Hockey: The Gordie Howe Story (co-produced by Winnipeg-based Inferno Pictures), which airs April 28 at 8 p.m. on CBC.

Held over!

The words "Held Over" used to be ubiquitous in newspaper movie ads but the words have special significance for director Sean Garrity, right, and actor-writer Jonas Chernick. Their comedy My Awkward Sexual Adventure was not only held over for a second week at the McGillivray and Polo Park cinemas in Winnipeg, but on all 10 screens where it's showing throughout Canada. It's especially sweet in Toronto for Garrity, because his other recent release, Blood Pressure, is now in its seventh week in Hogtown.

Wolseley artsies will be green with envy

New York magazine has a great profile in its April 29 issue of "the first couple of American fiction," literary novelist Claire Messud, right, and her husband, James Wood, The New Yorker mag's book critic. Keyed to this weekend's release of Messud's new novel, The Woman Upstairs, the piece takes us into the pair's Boston home, which lives up to the term "bohemian chic."

Archangel

The last we saw of Tony Kushner's landmark drama Angels in America: Part One: Millennium Approaches was the dazzling scene of an angel crashing through the window into the sickroom of AIDS victim Prior. Talk about a cliffhanger. It has been a year-long wait to find out what happens next as the never-before-seen-here Part Two: Perestroika opens May 1 at the Winnipeg Jewish Theatre.
