Other Details: Re-live through this with me and I swear that I will die for you, Miss World. Last night the members of one of the best bands of the '90's, Hole, reunited in the same room for the first time. The occasion? The screening of the documentary Hit So Hard, which focuses on the life and near-death of Patty Schemel. Other members of the band are featured, including Courtney Love and there is footage of Kurt Cobain. When asked during the panel discussion after the screening if the band ever plans on getting back together, Love said: ""If something's not relevant I don't want to do it, if it's not moving forward I don't want to do it, that's just not my thing." reports Gothamist. Doesn't sound promising. [Via]
Here's the panel talk:

Other Details: Meek's Cutoff is a pioneer film set in 1845 which follows settlers as they try and make it across the Oregon Trail. It's kind of like the game only, you can't try again "If for some reason you don't survive -- your wagon burns, or thieves steal your oxen, or you run out of provisions, or you die of cholera." Most of the reviews say it is slow, but it pays off in the end. Michelle Williams stars in the movie and was on hand in a cute Chanel shift dress looking just as tiny and adorable as ever. Zoe Kazan and her real life boyfriend Paul Dano are also in the film and attended the screening, posing for pics together. Later, guests hit the after party at the Jimmy at the James hotel to talk about the movie and sip Appleton Estate cocktails. Courtney Love stopped by after an event for Hole at Moma (see below), Sofia Coppala looked like a mommy wearing a pale blue sweater and chatting away near the section with couches, and Beastie Boy Adam Yauch was almost unrecognizable in a cowboy hat with a long gray beard. He must have started planning his Western themed ensemble months ago. Michael Stipe was one of the latest arrivals, heading up on the elevator at around 12:30 in a blue beanie. [Via]
