Twiggy is featured in the new issue of Blender magazine in a section called "38 Useful Tips From the Stars" beginning on page 89. Twiggy offers up his advice on "How to Trash a Hotel Room" as follows:

"You've got to be subtle so the damage will last long -- like a time bomb. So if you order room service -- preferably chicken, or anything that will rot -- stick it between the mattresses. About a week down the road, it'll smell awful. Also, why bother going to the bathroom? Just use the bed! Especially if there's a partner in bed with you. But there's a point where carelessness goes too far: If you wreck a room every night, it's like hitting yourself in the face."

The article features a full page photo of Twiggy, appropriately enough sitting on a bed in a trashed (way) hotel room. A scanned version of the photo can be found on the Candid/Miscellaneous page.

Marilyn Manson is confirmed to be joining Billy Corgan, Motorhead, Rob Zombie and a host of other artists who will lend their renditions of Ramones tunes to an upcoming Ramones tribute album being produced by Zombie. The Mansons (I am, hopefully, assuming correctly that the band will be in on this one!) will cover "The KKK Took My Baby Away" for We're a Happy Family, which is currently scheduled for a summer 2002 release

"Tainted Love", the video and single, is faring very well over in the UK, with the single having made BBC Radio 1's "A" List and the video coming in at #1 for the 9th week in a row on Kerrang!TV's "most requested" charts.
