Yeah baby! Austin Powers 4 is on it’s way and it’s going to be completely zangy! Mike Meyers has officially signed on for the fourth flick and I think we are long overdue for a good laugh from him.

All things come down to a choice, a fork in the road, yes or no, now or later, this not that, more or less. With each song I create there are literally thousands of decisions and adjustments from inception to release. Decision making is the process that paves our path in life. If we make elegant choices even from humble beginnings, existence becomes less of a struggle and we can open to what’s next. In other words, you make your own luck. Choice is the engine of creation, of change and we’re the self determined hamsters on our own personal wheel of fortune. Since the sum of my choices equals the life I lead, the real goal is to make informed decisions that produce the desired result. http://infinitetolerance.com/places/infinity-choices-truthful-voices/All things come down to a choice, a fork in the road, yes or no, now or later, this... more
Don't you hate when you say things without realizing you did? That happens all the time according to the movies. From "Pygmalion" to "Never Been Kissed," characters often find themselves accidentally running at the mouth and then asking, "Did I say that out loud?"

My favourite scene from Austin Powers - when Mike Myers gets stuck doing a 1,000 point turn in a little buggy - was re-created in Downing Street on Wednesday morning when the President's armoured limo made hard work of a 3 point turn outside Number 10.

The Hollywood Reporter is reporting that Hindu groups in India are seeking to ban Mike Myers new film, The Love Guru. In it, the shagadelic Austin Powers actor portrays a character called Guru Pitka, who is dubbed the "second best guru in India." Unfortunately not everyone is seeing the funny side of Myer's self-help industry satire, and pressure is apparently being put on India's Central Board of Film Certification and the Ministry of Information and Broadcasting to ban screenings of the film in the country.
Bhavna Shinde, a representative of the Mumbai-based Hindu organization Janjagruti Samiti, is quoted as saying that Indian censors should, "stop distributing or screening the movie till Paramount has made necessary changes ... so that it will not hurt the feelings of the worldwide spiritual and Hindu community." American-based religious leader, Rajan Zed, president of the Universal Society of Hinduism, has accused the film of "lampooning Hinduism."
Myer's Love Guru co-stars include Justin Timberlake, Jessica Alba, Daily Show funny man John Oliver (as Dick Pants), and Gandhi star Ben Kingsley (as Guru Tugginmypudha). Real life uber guru Deepak Chopra also has a cameo role, and is featured in the film's publicity campaign. Guru groupies can log on to FavoriteGuru.com to vote for the man they'd most like to follow. So far Myer's alter ego Guru Pitka is leading with 62% of the vote, compared to Chopra's 38%, making it more decisive than a Democratic primary (if you ignore West Virgina like the superdelegates are).
Before Myer's started filming The Love Guru, he spent some quality time with Chopra to get the right vibe. In 2006 the double act appeared on The Sundance Channel's series Iconoclasts, and spent the day together in preparation for a symposium on comedy and spirituality that evening.
Chopra explained the need for laughter in spirituality, saying that, "When your soul responds to the paradox of our existence, to the contradictions of our existence, to the fact that wherever there is joy there is suffering, when your soul recognizes this, it can do nothing except laugh."
Myers closed the show, by saying, "Everything that I've read suggests that enlightenment is lightening up." After recent events, he may want to revise that statement.

A spy who infiltrated a direct action anti-aviation group has been exposed after making a series of elementary errors that aroused the suspicions of genuine activists.
Toby Kendall joined Plane Stupid, the group that occupied the roof of the Houses of Parliament last month, after graduating from Oxford last year. He told the activists that his name was “Ken Tobias” and said that he was deeply concerned by the impact of the aviation industry on climate change and that he wanted to help to organise protests.
However his habit of wearing a Palestinian scarf with his Armani jeans and designer shirt made some members question his identity. He was also the only member to turn up early to every meeting but had no friends in the activist community. He took part in protests, dressing as a penguin in one stunt, but always tried to remain in the background.
Plane Stupid began a mole hunt and, after feeding him false information that found its way within two days to the aviation industry, discovered his real name and employer. The activists remembered his supposed Oxford connection and showed a friend there his photograph. He immediately recognised Ken as Toby Kendall, an Oriental Studies student from Wadham College.
"He was always trying to up the ante," said a Plane Stupid activist. "I remember him saying we should block the escalators at the T5 opening and make complete and utter nuisances of ourselves. This appeared in the Standard almost verbatim."
Mr Kendall, 24, works for C2i International, a counter-intelligence company run by former special forces officers. Its website puts “aerospace” at the top of a list of industries for which it works.
BAA, which owns Heathrow, has repeatedly been targeted by Plane Stupid. BAA deny any involvement with C2i or Mr Kendall. Mmm hmmm?.....A spy who infiltrated a direct action anti-aviation group has been exposed after... more
