Damien Echols is writing a memoir for Penguin imprint Blue Rider Press, scheduled for publication September 2012 and may have a small role in "The Hobbit," which director and major WM3 benefactor Peter Jackson is currently shooting in New Zealand, according to Showbiz 411's Roger Friedman.

At the 10-year anniversary of the Clinton Foundation at the Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles last Saturday, Lady Gaga serenaded Bill and Hillary Clinton with her hit ballad "You and I." Except she changed the lyrics to make the "I" about the Clintons.

"Somewhere, something about this place, somewhere about [sic] American eyes when a Clinton makes us all feel safe," Gaga worked in her song. "Somewhere something about a cool, Arkansas guy, yes, something about — Hillary, Billary, that's your new celebrity name — to the Clintons, you and I." See a video of the performance at arktimes.com/billary.

Times photographer Brian Chilson was on hand at Hillcrest Harvest Fest, where Box Turtle once again put on an impressive fashion show last Saturday, featuring designs from Amber Taylor, Lauren Kemp, Punkee Monkee, Linda Thomas, Trisha Timmerman, Erin Lorenzen, Missy Lipps and Korto Momolu. See a slideshow of just about every design at arktimes.com/boxturtle11.
