Shooting "Bernard and Doris" for less than $500,000 was a brilliant bit of guerrilla moviemaking loved by a top-flight cast and crew getting paid very little and having the time of their professional lives. When there was no cash left in the skimpy budget for the project, which was shot in 25 days during the 2005 Christmas holidays at a Long Island, N.Y., museum, members of the production team - from Academy Award-winner Susan Sarandon, ...

Lupe Fiasco recently had the distinction of being the first musical guest to appear on the first episode of TV's "The Late Show With David Letterman" following the program's two-month, writers-strike-fueled hiatus. It was a fitting honor for the hip-hop maverick, who cites Billie Holiday, Tom Waits and Johnny Cash among his favorite artists, and credits "Sesame Street" and Dr. Seuss among his biggest songwriting influences.   FIASCO IN THE MAKING - Making albums requires a ...
