The plane truth
Two preachers grounded a flight leaving Buffalo, New York, after they frightened passengers by declaring the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks were a good reason to pray. First they're in the airports and now they're on the planes. Is there anywhere we can go anymore where we're not bombarded with people making us feel guilty?

KISS and make up
KISS frontman and, apparently, spokesperson for his fellow Jews, ticked off the Muslim community recently when, in a radio interview, he said this of Muslim society: "This is a vile culture and if you think for a second that it's willing to just live in the sands of God's armpit you've got another thing coming. They want to come and live right where you live and they think that you’re evil." After realizing he was a complete and utter idiot (and that he probably put a big bullseye on his back), he later released this clarification: "I was asked about extremists," Simmons said. "And that's what I was talking about -- only extremists."

Miriam and Max would be proud
Hollywood's most bodacious Jewish moguls, Bob and Harvey Weinstein, have snatched the rights to the film they originally financed -- Michael Moore's scathing anti-Bush doc Farenheit 9/11 which won the coveted Palm D'or at the recent Cannes Film Festival. The Weinsteins had been embroiled in an ownership battle with Disney after they refused to distribute the film. As well, the Weinsteins have decided that any profits from the film's distribution that go to Miramax or Disney will be donated to charity. An interesting footnote: After seeing Moore's Oscar-winning Bowling for Columbine, our buddy Mel Gibson actually wanted to finance Moore's next film, but when he found out it would put his beloved right-wing conservatives in a bad light, he opted out, paving the way for the Weinsteins to come in. And to think, if he had been busy with this film, he may not have made The Passion.

Girls gone wild
After consecutive sold out performances in Manhattan and on tour, "Nice Jewish Girls Gone Bad" returns to Fez for a summer long festival of unconventional chosen chicks, a wicked combination of comedy, music, spoken word, burlesque and short films. Beginning June 7th, each week will bring with it a brand new extravaganza, featuring short films by Amy Sohn and the late Sarah Jacobson, a reading by author Wendy Shanker, celebrating the release of her new book, "A Fat Girl's Guide to Life" plus steamy summer camp confessions. We've said it before and we'll say it again: Where were these girls when we were in Hebrew school?

Strike a pose
Madonna started off her Reinvention tour last week and said that she would sing Kabbalah-inspired songs while "simulating sex with a female tango dancer." Ok, so we understand she's into Kabbalah, but where did the lesbian aspect come into play? Rabbi Shmuley Boteach, ever the one to mince words, put it this way in an op-ed he wrote exhorting the head of the Kabbalah Centre to dump the Material Girl. "Earth to Phillip Berg: Do us all a favor and dump Madonna as your principal spokesperson. Sorry to be so crass, but Madonna is a slut." Ah ... Shmuley and Madonna in the same Yada post -- could life be any better?

Kosher chameleon
Thanks to the Jewschool blog for pointing us in the direction of perhaps the juciest tidbit this side of the Mississippi. Britney Spears has reportedly gone kosher and we have Madonna to thank for it. "Britney is following in the footsteps of Madonna and Winona Ryder, who all stick to Kosher food. She just feels so much healthier. As well as mot of the dishes being prepared with vegetable oil, Britney also avoids eating gelatine. Britney did the Atkins diet for a while, but then thought better of it. She just can't be bothered with serious diets and would much rather stick to one routine when it comes to food," a source was quoted as saying. When you think about it, this is big news. Most Jews don't even keep kosher.

Millions of wrongs don't make it un-Christian
Oh them silly Christian kids. It turns out they're just as likely to engage in online piracy as the next, decidedly unsaved, kid. You'll need a Salon subscription to read the full article, but the basic gist is this. Christian kids illegally download music and movies at more or less the same rate as non-Christian kids. That's got moral leaders in a huff, because downloading Amy Grant's new hit single without paying for it is not just illegal -- it's immoral.

Tell that to the people who made Passion of the Christ the number one illegally downloaded film online. Two questions here: Will this prompt some to get off their moral high horse and stop acting as if "the saved" are somehow morally superior? Is it really wrong to spread the Gospel illegally?

I can't wait to see the movie Saved!

One sour photo
Gonzo journalist Hunter S. Thompson apparently never attended Auschwitz Summer Camp. Matt Drudge reports that in an essay on the images of prisoner abuse at Abu Ghraib, a line was reportedly cut from Thompson's regular ESPN column for going "too far": Here's the line in all its original glory: "Not even the foulest atrocities of Adolf Hitler ever shocked me so badly as these photographs did."

Shrek slays Jesus. Film at 11.
Thank God for Shrek. The animated film unseated Mel Gibson's The Passion of the Christ as the strongest opening for a film in 2004 beating The Passion's $89.3 million opening weekend grosses with $129 million. And, unlike Gibson, Dreamworks is already working on two more installments. This must be great news for Shrek 2's Orthodox screenwriter David Weiss.

Thanks to our friends over at the Jewschool blog for bringing this juicy item to our attention. In reponse to the recent success of Revolve, a Christian-based magazine for women, the same company is now producing Refuel, a self-proclaimed "BibleZine" that "is a totally cool new way for teen guys to read the Bible." The premiere issue includes such topics as "Inside Her Head: Real Girls Give Their Opinions," "Dive In: How to Make Your Faith Real," and "240 Ways to Walk the Walk." Sounds positively riveting.

Passion payback
It seems ABC has got some serious passion for Mel Gibson. The network has picked up a sitcom called "The Savages" for the fall season about a father and his five rambunctious sons, produced by none other than Gibson himself. Critics are crying foul because they believe ABC gave Gibson the show as payback for allowing Diane Sawyer have the exclusive pre-Passion interview with Gibson.

Family reunion
Family Guy, the animated cartoon that has built up a cult following since it went off the air in 2002, is getting a second lease on life. Due to the staggering popularity of reruns airing on the Cartoon Network nightly at 11:30 -- the show actually beats out Leno and Letterman in the coveted 18-34 demographic -- the series will be returning with a whopping 35 new episodes beginning early next year. No word yet on whether they will finally air the all-too-controversial Jew-friendly episode called "When You Wish Upon a Weinstein."

In response to the new rabbinic ban on wigs from idol-worshippers in India, an entrepreneurial minded person is selling 45,000 wigs on eBay. And this from the seller's description: "Seller takes no responsibility for any injuries, damage, harm or detriment that may result due to the presence of satanic or modern-orthodox spirits hovering in or around the wigs." Fancy Indian wig? $5,000. A shmuck using eBay to hawk the banned item? Priceless.

The Not So Miraculous Porch Light
Though thousands have flocked to the tiny hospital where the image resides, the Vatican is officially declaring the ghostly image of the Virgin of Guadalupe not a miracle. Apparently the figure shows up every night when the patio light is switched on at Social Security Clinic No. 32.

Because the image is essentially just a shadow cast by the patio light, the Catholic Church does not consider it miraculous, though it is pleased the image "serves to strengthen the faith of the believers."

In other news, Joe Jonah Goldilocks got his porch light to make a 20-foot tall Moses. The Chief Rabbi of Israel (Ashkenazi that is) will be flying over to inspect the miraculous porch. No, really...

Kravitz goes to 'Barbecues and Bar Mitzvahs'
Oh, we wish it was a joke -- perhaps a politely crafted lampooning for an upcoming South Park episode, but, alas, it isn't. Barbecues and Bar Mitzvahs is officially and genuinely Lenny Kravitz's cinematic debut. The film will be semi-biographical of Mr. Kravitz, who is the scion of a Jewish father and a black mother (who starred as an interracial couple on The Jeffersons). Torn between two cultures, Kravitz turned to music and we were all err... blessed, with his tunes.

Now, will this be a good movie, we don't know. One request, however: Change the name Lenny. Fer cryin' out loud, change the frigin' name! Oh yeah, and thanks to Nextbook for tipping us off.

On the last take, as I was elevated and the tentacles started moving, I sang: 'If I were a rich man ... ' I think it'll wind up on the DVD."
