‘i-D’ Goes Agyness Crazy

Had your fill of Agyness Deyn? Well, close your eyes then because this is about to be overkill. The May issue of 'i-D' is dedicated to the former chip-shop girl with five, yes, five covers...

Where the Fug Is Anna Wintour?!

Even though we're only two days in, it just seems wrong somehow that we've seen more of socialites and Sophia Bush than we have of Anna Wintour. Sure, we know that soon enough the Bob will be sitting in stony silence about six rows ahead of us, but it's hard not to get impatient for that first glimpse of the coif that Suri Cruise is currently getting unfair credit for inventing.

Fred Thompson Drops Out of Presidential Race

Fred Thompson

Fred Thompson has dropped out of the presidential race. "Today, I have withdrawn my candidacy for president of the United States," the former Tennessee senator said in a statement that was just released. "I hope that my country and my party have benefited from our having made this effort." There was no announcement of whether he would be endorsing one of his former Republican rivals for the nomination. Thompson had said that he needed to win this weekend's South Carolina primary, in which he placed third, in order to continue the campaign. To which we say, good call. The odds of winning are much better on Law & Order, anyway. Fred Thompson Quits Presidential Race [AP]

James Taylor Crowd Knows Nothing of His Work

20070813taylor_sm.jpg
There was the usual phalanx of celebs at the Ross School in East Hampton Saturday for James Taylor's penultimate concert in the Hampton Social series — the Olsens, Richard Gere, Jimmy Buffett, Daryl Hannah, even Paul McCartney — but, as it turned out, they weren't all necessarily there to see Sweet Baby James. "I don't know much of his music," James Blunt admitted to us before the show started, "but I'm looking forward to it." So no favorite songs, then? "I'll have to get back to you at the end of the night," he said. Mischa Barton was equally flummoxed. "Um, I don't know," she admitted. "Everyone's been asking me. I put it on my iPod before we left, but I haven't listened." Beth Ostrosky, there with her boyfriend, Howard Stern, was one of the few who could answer the question. "'You've Got a Friend,'" she said proudly. And local gal Christie Brinkley eventually came up with an answer, too. "I sing the kids this song at night to help put them to sleep," she said. "I don't know what it's called, but it goes, 'There is a young cowboy…' Oh, 'Sweet Baby James,' that's it." Yup. —Brett Amelkin

Greenwich Village to Get Another Gastropub, If You Want to Call It That

The definition of a gastropub, as Adam Platt points out in his E.U. review this week, is open to question. But there’s no doubt that even the most broadly defined one is an upgrade over a bar with bad food, or no food at all. The Half-Pint, on West 3rd Street, will soon be pouring hand-drawn cask ale and over 60 kinds of bottled beer for NYU students and other locals, as well as administering a better-than-it-has-to-be food program. Chef-owner Mark Whelan’s menu includes fried Wisconsin cheese curds, crusted yellowfin tuna over salad, and some creative rethinkings of familiar bar standards, such as a ground-bratwurst burger, and a Reuben pizza with French dressing, sauerkraut, pastrami, and Swiss cheese. (For our part, we plan to stick to cask ale and traditional bar pies with Esposito sausage and cremini mushrooms. At least for the first few pints.) The Half Pint is slotted to open Memorial Day weekend. The Half-Pint, 76 W. 3rd St., nr. Thompson St.; no phone yet. The Half Pint menu

Model Missy Rayder Drinks Garlic and Eats ‘Dragon Bowls’

Missy Rayder, currently featured in Gap’s khaki ads, isn’t sweating the whole “skinny models” thing: She grew up in Wisconsin eating McDonald’s and microwaveable cheese-filled hot dogs. Her tastes were refined after she moved to New York City at the age of 16: “I switched a long time ago from my days of drugs to food.” Of course, that doesn’t mean she’s staying home cooking. “My stove doesn’t even work. I don’t think I’d be a very good wife.” Nevertheless we let her seduce us with tales of superlative brisket (fed to her while Terry Richardson photographed her for Uniqlo) and the best French fries in the city.

Jonathan Ames to Bring Moby, Nudity to Pitkin's for a Rematch

20070131moby_sm.jpg
Word comes from performance author Jonathan Ames that his show at Mo Pitkin's tonight will include "nude wrestling, pillow-fights, paddling, chaos, excellent performances, and a likely guest appearance by Moby." Nekkidness, chaos, and Moby the Jesus-fearing vegan, all in one place? Not as strange as you'd think: We heard from a witness that the shaved one once had so much fun at a Stamford, Connecticut, strip club that he convinced the staff to keep the place open for him several hours past closing. When the owners wanted to charge him a couple thousand dollars more for this indulgence than he thought was fair, he not only refused to pay a cent of it but also threatened to call the cops and report a fight outside of the club. "The sad part about this," Moby allegedly told a bouncer, "is that when we wake up tomorrow, I'll still be me and you'll still be you." Even worse: He'll still be the guy who said that. —Daniel Maurer The Jonathan Ames Show [MoPitkins.com]
