The other white

Americans buy more Sauvignon Blanc than any white besides Chardonnay, and this old favorite is undergoing a transformation.

Sauvignon Blanc is second only to Chardonnay in acres of white grapes planted in California, but the Golden State hasn’t determined the style of this American favorite in the last few years.

VOTD: It ain’t easy being ... from New Zealand

Bret McKenzie and Kermit the Frog sing an original song from ‘The Muppets.’

There is a poster promoting “Flight of the Conchords”’ second season on HBO in my office. Thus, any video of Bret McKenzie playing or writing songs on the fly are an automatic VOTD, doubly so when accompanied by any Muppet.

That’s the case here, thanks to The New York Times magazine, which corralled the New Zealand comedian into a studio to talk about his work composing original songs for the new “Muppets” movie and even perform one with the little green guy. It’s a fun little feature, and most definitely worth your time (click through to watch). Turns out writing songs for Muppets is extra-tricky, as McKenzie learned.

Also be sure to read Rod Lott’s super-exclusive interview with Jason Segel. And pick up a copy of tomorrow’s Gazette for a review of the film, which also opens tomorrow.

The Devil's Rock

Thud.


Horror

Rod Lott
On the eve of D-Day, British soldiers Capt. Grogan (Craig Hall, "30 Days of Night") and Sgt. Tane (Karlos Drinkwater, TV's "Spartacus") successfully maneuver through mines to infiltrate a cavernous Forau Island fortress that could be on the cover of Architectural Digest, if only the magazine printed an issue devoted to the homes of satanic creatures.
