Eight Items or Less: Russell Simmons, Sharon Jones & Linked Bagels

Gary Pini
1. Russell Simmons has teamed with Oxygen Media to develop a TV series featuring the "women behind the mogul."  Who are these women? Is one of them Kimora?  Well, we only know that they include Russell's "closest confidantes, fierce gatekeepers, dating coaches, spiritual advisors, philanthropic czars, business liaisons and more."  Sounds like more fun than I Didn't Know I was Pregnant.

2. The Telegraph counts the vehicles at the Copenhagen Climate Summit and finds: 1,200 limos, 140 private planes and only 5 hybrids.

3. Sharon Jones and the Dap-Kings just released a new holiday song called "There Ain't No Chimneys in the Projects."  There's a free download here.

4. The New York Times is also getting their holiday game on with this recipe for caramel sauce by Thomas Keller.

5. How to slice a bagel into two linked halves.  We always wondered how to do this.

6. Mean Red Productions are having a little party called "Lose Your Shit" (they're getting coal in their stocking for using a naughty word) on Saturday, December 12, at 49 N. 3rd St. in Brooklyn. DJs include Smallchange, Eli Escobar, Dub War DJs and Dirty South Joe.
