‘RENT’ DVD ON SALE TODAY!
REMINDER: The Rent DVD is being released to purchase (and rent) in stores today! Hope everyone interested gets the chance to see the beautiful DVD (and special features), and I’ll be adding a lot of caps when I get the chance. Just keep an eye out for those soon.
FREESTYLE SOUNDS ADDED + PHOTOSHOOT IMAGES
It took me awhile to do this, but I finally reminded myself to add clips of Idina’s “freestylin’ raps” from her Summer Concert Tour last summer (as well as an old favorite ) to the new Freestyle/Rap Sound Page. I also added the lyrics to several of them (the others are coming soon, I just need to rewrite them), so what she’s saying is more clear to those of you who haven’t heard them before Enjoy! These are soooooooo fun, let me know what you think (*cough*comment*cough*).
Reminder: The CD release of Idina’s most recent musical, See What I Wanna See, has already started to be shipped out to those people who ordered it from GhostlightRecords.com, but when the CD is widely released on March 7th, I WILL BE REMOVING the See What I Wanna See AUDIO CLIPS FROM THIS SITE! I announced before that they would only be here as long as they couldn’t be heard elsewhere. But I encourage everyone to purchase recordings of Idina’s projects, so again, anything available to buy on CD won’t be here to download. Sorry, that’s just the way I’m choosing to run the media section. If you are still interested in downloading/saving the clips, go here and do so. I will be removing them on March 7th.
A HUGE thank you to Raev for sending to me 13 beautiful photos from the “Life” magazine photoshoot by Karina Taira!! They are in color, with a few of the original images in color too, so go check them out! They’re stunning!
CRAIG FERGUSON APPEARANCE + BENEFIT CONCERT
Upcoming TV appearance! Idina will be making an appearance on the Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson late on Wednesday, March 1st — The show airs weeknights at 12:35 AM on CBS — MEANING: Stay up LATE on March 1st to see the episode, which technically airs very very early on March 2nd! It can be confusing, so be careful. I will be posting an update that morning as a reminder, so be on the lookout! Also, if you are in the Los Angeles area, you can order FREE tickets to see the taping of the show here. I got my tickets, I can’t wait!
Also, Idina has been listed as a performer in the upcoming Hollywood Meets Motown Benefit Concert, which will be on March 15, 2006 at the Waldorf in NYC — Tickets have been listed as EXTREMELY expensive (it is a benefit, after all), but if anyone has the means, it’ll likely be a fantastic event. Read more about it here.

‘PUBLIC SINGS’ BWAY BEAT VIDEO
BroadwayWorld.com has put up this week’s edition of “Broadway Beat”, an inside look at New York Theatre — The new video includes interviews with several performers from last month’s benefit concert, The Public Sings, including Idina! I’ve added the link to the video to the Streaming Videos Page (just scroll all the way down), and since the video includes other footage, the Public Sings segment begins at 12:15 Idina is just adorable, I highly recommend taking a look, it’s a great little interview.
‘DUST’ IMAGES + ‘TOLLBOOTH’ SCREENINGS
The Official Site for Idina’s upcoming film, Ask the Dust, has added a slew of stills to the site under “Download/Gallery” – However, at this time, there are NO large stills of Idina. I’m hoping that they’ll add more. But! If you go to that section, the photo on the background is a beautiful still with Idina as ‘Vera’, which I happened to cap and add to the Gallery. On the site, AIM icons have also been added, Idina’s character being featured in one of them! If more photos surface, they will promptly be added in the Gallery below.
For those of you interested in news on Idina’s other film, imdependently made The Tollbooth, more screenings dates and locations have been added. Director, Debra Kirschner, sent out a mailing update to those on the mailing list — if you are not a recipient, you can read it below: (click “read more”)
