Toni Morrison: guest curator of the Louvre.

Meryl Streep: “I mean, come on; when you have people writing these things, that you’re the greatest thing that ever ate scenery, you’re dead. You’re fucking dead. How can you even presume to begin a new character? It’s a killer.”

Alice Munro: Any chance she has a shot at a Nobel Prize? Tom Nissley, books editor at, thinks so. “Canada would go completely nuts, which is always nice to see.”

Lucha Libre!
This isn’t a kegger costume party at your brother’s frat house—this is the REAL DEAL. An authentic, high-flying Lucha Libre exhibition right here in Seattle, it includes title-holding, mask-wearing, professional LUCHADORES from both the Consejo Mundial de Lucha Libre and World Championship Wrestling. The show will be presented in English and Spanish, and is old-school-style “standing-room only.” The openers, including drag queen El Exotico and a minimatch between midget wrestlers Pitbull Patterson and Short Sleeve Sampson, are NOT TO BE MISSED. (The Fenix, 1700 First Ave S, 382-7877. 9 pm, $20 cash only DOS, 21+.) KELLY O

And if you want to get in the mood for Lucha Libre, you might give the Lucha film Los Vampiros de Coyoacan a watch. It's a bit slow in parts, but the climactic scene involves midget vampires. Need I say more. It's not available with subtitles, but the dialogue is really not important. Scarecrow has the DVD.
