Have you ever wondered how to be a seat filler at the Oscars, join the paparazzi at Sundance, become a movie extra, volunteer at the Tribeca Film Festival, or help set up the halftime stage at the Super Bowl?

A new travel guide, 101 Places Every Pop Culture Fan Should See, seeks to explain all this, plus 96 other things all media enthusiasts should experience at least once in their lives and, hopefully, on their travels. The book will include information about comic-cons, awards ceremonies, annual parties, film festivals, famous filming locations, and celebrity hang-outs all across the U.S. and Canada.

To get the guide into fans' hands fast, the author has teamed up with a new crowd-driven publishing platform, Inkshares, in order to raise enough money to cover the cost of production. There's only about $3,000 to raise towards the goal.

The Rolling Stones' Private Jet is Bigger Than Yours

March 18, 2014 at 10:12 AM | by | Comments (0)

Keep your eye out this month, Australia, as The Rolling Stones are flying around in their very own Boeing 767 painted with their lips-and-tongue logo. The 767, tail number ZS-DJI, is pretty minimal otherwise (but we bet the interior's anything but!). That's not a tiny private jet, by the way; a Delta 767, for comparison, holds just over 200 passengers.

The band landed in Perth yesterday to being their Australia tour, and today received the news that L'Wren Scott, acclaimed fashion designer and longtime girlfriend of Mick Jagger, had died.

The show must go on, however, and the Stones are all set to take their private jet around the continent for shows in Adelaide, Sydney, Brisbane, Melbourne, Hanging Rock, and even down to Auckland, New Zealand. The Perth Airport Spotter's Blog has a few images of the plane in daylight.
