While you were working ...

Today's news you might've missed:

  • The Coachella Music Festival is moving from land to sea. Goldenvoice has announced the launch of the S.S. Coachella, which will host two identical line-ups on two separate December voyages: one from Fort Lauderdale to the Bahamas, and the second from Fort Lauderdale to Jamaica. Pulp will headline the floating festival, which will also include acts from Hot Chip, Yeasayer, Girl Talk, James Murphy (DJ Set), Sleigh Bells, Simian Mobile Disco, Z-Trip, !!!, Warpaint, DJ Harvey, El-P, Killer Mike and more. [S.S. Coachella]
  • Even though Nemo was found at the end of Pixar's first animated, under-the-sea adventure, there might be a "Finding Nemo" sequel in the works. [Deadline]
  • And here's an argument against the idea of a "Finding Nemo" sequel (guess which side we're on): [CinemaBlend]
  • If you're in the market for a four-bedroom, six-bath, $1.495 million home in Texas, you're in luck - Kelly Clarkson just put hers up for sale. [People]
  • Here's a photo of Russell Brand walking down the street with Jordana Brewster's sister Isabella, which obviously means they love each other and are going to have babies .... or, that they're simply walking down the street holding hands. [People]
  • H&M has snapped up Lana Del Rey and her retro-cool looks for its fall fashion campaign. [WWD]
  • We would scrounge up an image for Lady Gaga's perfume ad, which shows the singer stark naked with tiny, little men crawling all over her, but we think you can refer to the many nude photos of the past and conjure up a mental image. (And if not, the photo's at the link.) [THR]

What’s next for Joss Whedon?

After directing the most successful movie of the year – not to mention the third most successful movie of all time – where does one go next?

In Joss Whedon's case, it's not Walt Disney World, but San Diego Comic-Con, where he was ubiquitous this year. Whedon hit up the parties (social media lit up with tales about his dancing prowess) and spoke on several panels.

Whedon was a perennial presence at the mega-convention, hyping TV’s "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" and "Firefly," among others, for many years prior to his box office success.
