SEPTEMBER 2, 1997:  Whenever I'm given a platform from which to blather on, the talk always turns to Hollywood's stars and starlets du jour. Listen and learn. ... Fairuza Balk, the 23-year-old star of The Craft and Island of Dr. Moreau, is the proud owner of Panpipes Magickal Market Place, one of the oldest occult stores in Hollywood. Ms. Balk will also be appearing in a music video for electro-ravers Soul Defense Network. ... Brendan Sexton Jr., the creepy kid in Kids and Welcome to the Dollhouse, caused a ruckus after a screening of Hurricane, a Sundance favorite directed by Morgan Freeman. After waiting over an hour for a table at Riverhorse Cafe in Park City, Utah, the 17-year-old actor began dancing on the restaurant's balcony and licking the glass windows next to where people were eating. Sexton, Freeman and even Freeman's mom were turned away after a nasty argument with the restaurateur. ... Christina Ricci (Addams Family Values, That Darn Cat) is appearing as Lucy, an artist obsessed with Barbra Streisand, in a 1998 film adaptation of Hunter S. Thompson's Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas. It's a small part (was it even in the book?), but Ricci, 17 and newly blonde, is sure to shine. ... Don't you feel better knowing these things?

--Noah Masterson
