not sure of teh news source for this but sheeeeeeeeee-it

Meanwhile, "Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon" actor Chow Yun-Fat pulled out of a tsunami relief fund-raising concert in Hong Kong last weekend because he had to keep his new haircut a secret, according to a report.

Chow's wife, Jasmine, was quoted in the South China Morning Post as saying, "He is working on a movie [in the West] and has a new hairstyle - it's specified in the contract that he mustn't expose his hairstyle before the movie is out."

Flawed though it was, at least Live Aid shone a light on a problem that many in the western world were not particularly aware of (or chose to ignore). Having said that, with today's 24-hour news networks, is there a man, woman, or child alive today in the 'first world' who hasn't heard about what happened in the Indian Ocean 2.5 weeks ago?

It also seems to me that the lines of communication (i.e. the infrastructure to get Joe Blow's money into the hands of the relief agencies) is also a lot clearer today. So I'm not sure the telethon will do much to improve things for people who "want to give but don't know where".

I guess it will make the artists feel like they are contributing to the cause... but maybe if they just threw in $20 like the rest of us, the people who need the aid would ultimately be better off. I don't doubt their intentions are good, but... they may have already missed their cue on this one. Kind of like our DART team.

Better yet, how about having a telethon NEXT year at this time to make sure the cash keeps flowing and the devastated areas aren't forgotten?

I for one would pay good money to watch a drunken Alex Lifeson beat the everlasting cheese out of, say, the guy from Matchbox 20 :-) All for a good cause, of course.
