  1. Owen

    Owen is a solo project of Mike Kinsella, and part of the Chicago indie scene. Kinsella is one of the dominant and influential figures in the Chicago indie scene, having also led the band American Football, and played in the bands Cap'n Jazz, Joan of Arc and Owls. Owen is known for its soft melodies, complex acoustics, combining lead acoustics with keyboard and other guitars, plaintive vocals and on occasions adding drums. It can be seen as a natural progression for Kinsella, from the progressive and experimental severity of Joan of Arc via the more melodic-progressive American Football.

  2. Will Ferrell:

    It was obviously great to work in a city like Rome and to be kind of back together with Ben and Owen and that sort of thing but it was a pretty tight schedule, there were a lot of days where you're running around and wearing some uncomfortable corset you can't breathe in. And I had people sticking pens in me, things like that. So it's not really a funny story but it's a painful story. But for your art you sometimes have to suffer.

  3. Ben Stiller:

    Ben Stiller said of Chanel's creative director. It breaks my heart. Maybe if we ever do another.

I ’d much rather have somebody say, ‘ Hey, Derek Zoolander -LRB- Stiller -RRB-, ’ than ‘ Hey, Greg Focker,' he quipped.

That look came out of me in the mirror at home, when I brush my hair or whatever, Ben Stiller recalled. I guess with the selfie culture, it’s just a natural extension. Did I have any idea that it would live on ? No. Although Ben Stiller and Penelope Cruz is new to the Zoolander world but has always been a fan of the comedy.

  4. Steven Fielding:

    Labor has been divided for such a period that you just write off the next general election even under Owen Smith ... he has had the backing of the parliamentary Labor Party but then what will Momentum do?, in any scenario it is going to be a long, hard struggle, and before it gets better I think it will get worse for the Labor Party ... It is not a pretty prospect.

  5. Bret Hart:
