The Shag King

Celebs in Potters Fields today for a Shrek3 line-up in front of Tower Bridge. Present were Puss in Boots, Shrek,Princess Fiona and Prince Charming, but not Donkey Haughty.The Shag King is in black flanked by Antonio Banderas, Cameron Diaz and Rupert Everett. I sat on Jeffrey Katzenberg's slippery head to get these snaps. I say 'sat' tho he's a Democrat, but note the trim of my tail feathers.UPDATE: This Daily Mail story gives Rupert Everett his head. He's making a film of Ronald Searle's St Trinian's where "cartoons often showed dead bodies of girls who had been murdered with pitchforks or succumbed to violent team sports..; girls often drank, gambled, and smoked." Prince Charming plays the headmistress. I play a vulture.

It's been a weird week

There's something about logos that brings out all that's most spastic in ponytail aesthetics. Once a CEO has bought into a logo, it's blasphemy to state the obvious - same with IT projects or the Emperor's New Clothes.

The crazed emperor of the London Olympics is Sebastian Coe, one of the greatest of all athletes. I once walked behind him at Athens airport. It was like walking behind a man with wings on his ankles...he just glided down the corridor with no effort. Here he is announcing the new logo..
