Marvel Spy Spills on The Avengers

For a long time it looked like Jon Favreau wasn’t going to be able to direct his dream project, a film of The Avengers. Because of the schedule of shooting on Iron Man 2, it simply wasn’t going to be a possibility. But a self-proclaimed Marvel insider who has become to The Avengers what Deep Throat was to Watergate has informed the interwebs that the reason The Avengers release was pushed back a year was so that Favreau could, in fact, helm the project. He states that, “Everybody here loves the guy and he wants to do it, but it would have been impossible for him to do before the date change given his Iron Man 2 commitments." So things are looking up for our favorite swinger! [Ain't It Cool News]

Apparently Iggy Pop is actually taking Sex Pistols guitarist Steve Jones' offer to join The Stooges seriously. Jones offered to step in and fill the gap left by the death of Stooges guitarist Ron Asheton in January. Jones recently told the L.A. Times that he and Pop had been chatting about Jones becoming an honorary member of The Stooges for upcoming some tour dates, and Iggy recently admitted in a Rolling Stone interview that he has been talking to the ex-Pistol. Iggy said that he "talked to Steve" and if he wants "an extra guitar, he’d (Steve) be the guy to call." [Rolling Stone]

Craigslist: The One Stop Site for Your Supercar Needs

The recession seems to affect everyone in different ways. For the owner of a 1-of-400-produced Ferrari Enzo, arguably the world's finest supercar, it caused him to skip eBay and other fancy bidding sites in favor of everyone's anonymous sex classifieds website Craigslist to sell the performance icon. That's right folks, if you're in San Francisco bay area you too can schedule an appointment to test drive Ferrari's flagship. He's asking $1.2 million for it, and considering the initial $695,000 price tag for the car, if he gets the asking price, the 9,000 miles on the odometer would mean he'd actually earned $60 for every mile he drove.
