eve4.jpgWelcome to 2008! We’re still recovering from our holiday-induced coma, but to get things back up and humming here on the ‘razz, let’s jump in with some tasty appetizers to get the New Year cruising…

Rocker Eve has joined the long list of performers with backstage demands. But unlike Jennifer Lopez’s requests for “all things white” or Beyonce’s needs for “juicy baked chicken legs heavily seasoned with fresh garlic, seasoned salt, and black and cayenne pepper,” the rider for Eve states “there be no use of Styrofoam or plastic goods, no leather furniture, and only recyclable materials.” Damn. That’s beautiful. [via page six]

Daryl Hannah has been so overwhelmed by inquiries over the sale of her “badass” biodiesel El Camino that she’s decided to put the car up for auction. Starting January 7th (no link yet), you’ll be able to hit eBay and take a stab at owning this black beauty. Hannah also wanted to point out that besides the diesel engine, the car also comes with “automatic transmission, power steering and brakes, electric windows and cruise control.” [via dhlovelife]

We wrote about Ed Begley Jr. doing some eco-DIY videos for Home Depot a few months back — and then completely forgot to update on the latest additions. So, if you have a moment — and home improvement is on your list of 2008 to-dos — check out Ed teaching you how to create compost, make your home draft proof, and install a water-saving, low-flush toilet. Handy. [via pardon our dust]
